    I just think the amount of sugar in apples, grapes, mangos, pineapple, etc. is just a little much... even if they do have fiber :#

    I detest anything maple flavored. Will not touch syrup. Hate maple scented candles.

    I like almost every food! Yep-includes brussels sprouts, uni, poke, anchovies, etc. It is the way in which they are prepared that makes a food 'unlikable' to me. So for example, green beans roasted with sesame oil/seeds and soy sauce or aminos are yummy, but boiled---not so much! Sweet peas are awesome raw or frozen/thawed, but I have not found a split pea soup that I can stomach----yet!

    @g2renew I’ve only used the recipe for split pea soup from The Joy of Cooking. Beyond delicious! Even my kids loved it. Of course, it is green colored and sadly, my kids would refer to it as horse vomit. Oh, are we having horse vomit tonight? Always the comedians. As an aside, I don’t think anyone in my family has actually has seen horse vomit.

    I don't like maple syrup (or any syrup for that matter) on waffles or pancakes. I'd rather just have plain or w/ a nut butter or pb.

    @Maggiegirl135 and @AnnPT77 LOL I will try the recipe from The Joy of Cooking and keep you both posted :smile: .

    BTW: I have heard of a restaurant 'up north' whose entire menu is only split pea soup-different mix-ins and toppings- so there has to be a version out there that I will like! :wink:

    You can get all the protein a body needs without eating animals. I am putting this out there, even though I am NOT vegetarian.
    Here we go! Everyone pile on now!

    Yes, of course.

    I know you are vegan, but I am curious to why you think this. bacon is no different than any other cut of meat, really.

    @pancakerunner For me it's the smell. Generally I don't have a problem with the smell of meat, but but it's not the same for the smell of pig meat. I can tolerate most other cuts, but I can't even smile my way through the smell of bacon.

    I'm team 'NOOOOOO bacon'....even when I ate meat as a kid - bacon was always made for the rest of family - I hated it...along with hamburgers - I'd try to avoid meat as much as I could lol

    I just have vivid memories of my great grandma frying bacon in lard and the crunchy part was good then but fatty part was rubber death ..not to mention that side ended up with colon and other cancers. Plus it makes me *kitten* to even think to eat a pig.

    I’m not a fan of bacon either. Even as a kid all my friends were obsessed with it and I always hated it. I am just not a fan of fatty meat and it makes me feel sick. I haven’t had real bacon in like 15 years. I love the smell of it though. I don’t really care for bacon flavored things either.

    I have a super controversial opinion, One I've literally never met another soul who agrees with me. I. Hate. Pasta. There's a small amount I can stomach if I have no other option, but pasta/noodles are dead last on my food hierarchy. I've tried fresh, homemade. Different kinds of sauces, soups...No I just really hate something about pasta, Always have.
    Ironically I'm not a picky eater, I love all kinds of oddities and weird things. But I draw the line at pasta that is universally adored :D

    Gnocchi is surprisingly fine though, Even if that's closer to the dumpling family.
