What healthy food do you hate?



  • PieGuruPieGuru Posts: 1Member Member Posts: 1Member Member
    Okay, can i just say that I'm feeling pretty good about what I like to eat? I used to "hate" a lot of things, too, but have since either learned how to cook/prepare them so that they're actually tasty, or I've just "gotten over it".

    That said, there are a bunch of foods that aren't particularly healthy that I can't stand: mayo, olives, pickles, canned vegetables, canned pastas (barf), frozen breaded fish, processed soups/rices/noodles.

    I've learned to keep my grocery shopping to primarily the perimeter of the store (produce, deli, meat, dairy) and I avoid all the stuff I shouldn't be eating anyway. Doesn't always happen, but it's happening more times than it doesn't. So, yay for that.

    Healthy food I hate: 1. celery, 2. whole wheat bread, pasta anything whole wheat taste like cardboard.

    The Whole Foods store brand one is really good. Barilla Plus is good too.

    Okay, where to start. I dislike:

    1. Mushrooms
    2. Olives
    3. Squash
    4. All types of seafood apart from calamari
    5. lamb

    I'm a bit annoying to cook for! haha.

    I love a wide variety of foods, but there are a few of the more typical 'healthy' foods that I simply cannot stand!

    Raw celery - the crunchy, stringy texture kills me. I like it cooked in stews and soups though.
    Cottage cheese - I just can't get past the fact that it already looks partially digested.
    Tuna - from a packet or as a steak, I just don't like it. I WANT to like it, and I've tried it many times but nada.
    Most other seafood - as with tuna, I want to like seafood but just can't. I only eat salmon and very mild varieties of white fish.

    Please post what you don't like and make me feel better about my pickiness! :laugh:
    I love all of the above but absolutely cannot stomach...

    ♦ brown rice
    ♦ wholemeal bread
    ♦ wholegrain pasta
    ♦ bean sprouts
    ♦ seeds & nuts (unless baked in bread or cakes)

    Cauliflower has got to be the worst! It doesn't taste like mashed potatoes when you steam and mash it, it tastes and smells like alkaline acid to me.

    Canned Tuna is a close second for me.

    Broccoli - dislike eating trees - but eat it because I want to be a good role model for my children!!!
  • PinkEarthMamaPinkEarthMama Posts: 989Member Member Posts: 989Member Member
    Any fruit that isn't Granny smith apples. BLECH. Most super especially bananas. I gag just peeling them for the kids!

    Veggies : I can eat most veggies, honestly. I'm not big on raw tomato, but I don't mind it cooked into things. Not a fan of sweet potato, eggplant, cucumber...

    I eat tuna fish. That's the ONLY seafood I eat.

    I do not do eggs. The only reason to eat eggs is that it holds my cookies / bread together. End of story. BLECH.

    I don't eat steak, or red meat with any pink. I don't eat pork, lamb, veal, etc. I don't eat dark meat chicken, only breast meat, and I won't chew it off a bone. ahhhhhhhh

    I detest celery, the texture, the smell, the taste. I don't like it cooked or raw or in seasoning.(I'm thinking I could make another "green eggs and ham" story out of this without the blissful ending!!!) I also cannot stand the smell of cabbage, but if I plug my nose the taste isn't too bad. I also do not enjoy raw onions though since I have been married and my husband loves them I do cook with them a lot, though at times this makes me a tearful mess!

    1. Olives - I soooo want to love them, keep trying them though in the hope! (LOVE olive bread tho! odd I know...)
    2. Smoothies - Texture is just euuurrrgghhh.
    3. Celery - Unless cooked.
    4. Mussels
    5. Octopus/Squid - If I can see a sucker or a tentical no thank you!!!
    6. Melon - Tastes like stagnant water
    7. Parsnip
    8. Ryvita - I've tried all types but nope still expensive chewable cardboard!

    Im not so picky... I just cant stand some textures, especially on non-tasty foods :

    - tofu
    - humus
    - clam

    It makes me feel like I am not eating actual food. It's gross! :S

    My favorite way to wat cottage cheese (which I love btw) is over a WASA cracker or even as a dressing for my salads. But that's not what you asked :)

    1. Brocolli (can probably eat it steamed but not a fan of raw)
    2. tuna from a can (hate that smell)

    Hi- My name is Brad and I actually work with Wasa. Because I work with the product I always have a lot around and love to experiment with new recipes. Cottage cheese has been one of my new favorite toppings. Have you tried Wasa with cottage cheese, strawberries and blood orange? If not I've shared the recipe below. I hope you enjoy it!

    Cottage Cheese. Wouldn't eat it if you held a gun to my head.
  • firesoforionfiresoforion Posts: 1,025Member Member Posts: 1,025Member Member
    In general, I love healthy food, but ...grapefruit... yuck. Every so often I try to like it again, but it is not for me.

    I am pretty open as far as what I will eat, but there are a few things I dislike:

    Cottage Cheese- GAG! Omg I can't stand it!
    Cauliflower- I have disliked it since I first tried it as a child, its just gross. I will occasionally retry it to see if I like it but no luck as of yet.
    Wild Rice- This too I have hated ever since I was a kid. I can stomach it, but I don't like it. Taste and texture are just terrible.
