    Tofu makes me sick. Not the taste, not the texture, the soy. I try hard to avoid soy. It’s hard, but being sick all the time is harder.

    Same. I had to cut soy out of my diet for awhile due to Interstitial Cystitis because I was on a strict diet to try and get my flares under control. Slowly I started to add foods back in, but for some reason soy did not do well. Not only did it flare my IC (yay bladder pain!), but also gave me a rash on my arms and chest along with bad stomach cramps and other digestive problems. I had been eating it just fine before the IC too.

    Now I can have soy oil and soy lecithin with no problems, but soy protein, plain soy, or soy flour still makes me SO SO ill. And they are everywhere!

    Daiya is one of the worst tasting vegan cheeses. There are so many way better tasting brands.

    I always hear people raving about daiya and using it at restaurants when there are so many way better tasting ones.

    What are your favorites? The only brand I've tried is Daiya and I like it. I use the shredded kind mostly. I tried the cheese sauce for the first time yesterday and while it tasted good to me, it's a salt bomb. What brand will knock my socks off?

    I used to buy Daiya because I always heard it was the best. The pepperjack is the best out of all the flavors, but since I've tried more I've found others are a lot better. My absolute favorite is Follow Your Heart brand Parmesan shreds. Such a strong flavor. I love their cheddar and mozzarella as well. Violife is a close second. (They have a great feta and shreds) Both brands are a lot more flavorful and taste "cheesier" to me than Daiya.

    For slices, Violife smoked provolone, smoked cheddar and mature cheddar are all really good. I also like chao as a close second for slices.

    Forgot to add Myikos. Wegmans dairy free cheese section is crazy. I have yet to try them all. ls5zxji7j28h.jpeg

    Myikos is the only I have KIND of liked.

    So, I'm not big on alcohol in the first place (I only do wine and champagne), but I do NOT understand the appeal of bloody mary's!

    Whaaaaaaat?? I could drink a strong one every day (I don't.....promise). They are so good with lots of spicy things added. It does look gross, lol. I don't do the celery thing though.

    On that note, Vegetable juice like tomato/carrot/etc is just gross.

    I agree! I would much rather drink straight tomato sauce than juice hah

    On the contrary, V-8 juice (classic version) is the only juice worth buying in gas station convenience stores. And nowadays, fewer of them even stock it.

    Red beer is one of the very few alcoholic drinks I like. But the more they put in a Bloody Mary, the less I like it.

    I think this may be unpopular....

    Green salads are best eaten at the END of the meal instead of before or during the main course.

    That is actually no scientific value.
    It's a dieting trick that came out a long time ago. The idea is that by filling up with fibers and water, you will reduce the hunger and thus eat less high caloric foods from other dishes.
    That depends on the salad though. If your salad is bathing in dressing you are much better eating the other dishes first 😂😂😂

    But I see it!! I make the salads for my family very low calorie. When they have it last they don’t even finish their salads, when they have it first they don’t finish their other meal which is higher in calories. I am just talking about what I’ve seen in my experience I know it’s different for everyone but it drives me nuts. Then they complain they can’t lose weight when they could simply eat less calories by having the salad first instead. Of course if you plan to eat the whole meal it doesn’t matter but my family always leave food on their plates 🙄. Always the salad unless they eat it first.

    I know it works, it's a great way to eat actually.
    If you are counting calories it makes no sense, because you prepare your whole meal at those preset calories. But if you are not counting calories, that is a great way to eat.
    I don't count calories, and that is how I eat everyday.

    I usually eat lunch or dinner salads or salad on the side during the meal, and I enjoy pre meal salads too, but I agree that salad is a lovely way to finish a meal as well.

    I dislike... no, hate is the right word... mustard: yellow mustard, spicy mustard, Dijon mustard, Grey Poupon (something did!), any kind of mustard...
    Even a dab of mustard the size of a mustard seed is too much for me!

    I could eat it by the spoon!

    We have deli brown mustard, yellow mustard, horseradish mustard, and two kinds of Dijon mustard.

    We like mustard.

    I hate honey mustard though.
