picky eater solidarity, picky eater supremacy. why should i go eat a bunch of gross poo poo to try to trick my brain into not thinking it's so gross anymore
people will never get over the idea that eating poo poo (in every sense) is a virtue.

It'd be great if the guy who got so excited to meet goofy that he puked all over himself had that happen, like, a couple weekends ago. He was totally cool with fruit his whole life but just got totally AMPED about seeing Goofy and tossed his fruit cup all over his way too small "I <3 Mickey" shirt

I have a coworker who will not eat any kind of fruit and will tell you about it at length. "It's a texture issue," he claims. Other times he claims it's because he got so excited to meet Goofy at Disney World that he barfed up the pineapple chunks he'd had with breakfast and hasn't been able to eat fruit since. There was a bowl of oranges at an office party once and he cringed away from it like a vampire from the sun. Obviously he's also a big attention whore.

Having food preferences is fine. Being a "picky eater" generally means you failed to develop past being a toddler. I had to stop dating a woman in part because she'd only eat the same 3 things, and the whole thing came off as incredibly childish and stupid. I saw no future with her, the same way I see no future with you OP. It's best we go our different ways and remember the good times we had.

I agree, the picky eaters in my family have all tended to be narcissistic assholes in general who would fly off the handle over minor things. gently caress them.

Hawaiian pizza is good but I think the pineapple is frequently cut too chunky. It should be cut thin so that it carmelizes all the way through.

Being a picky eater is not an allergy or disability and nobody who is kind enough to cook for you should ever feel obligated to accommodate all of your childish food kinks. It's the cook's job to push you out of the plane. Deal with it.

at least pick something good to be picky about. eating something that the mcdonalds cabal of burgermancers have engineered to tick the lizard brain boxes of fat, salt, etc isnt good

why don't you picky eaters eat something that's good??? no not the thing that an army of food scientists have spent decades and the GDP of small nations refining into something that's so good that it is literally addictive. i meant good like, uh, kale

you can say fast food is unhealthy and get no argument from me, or maybe your gut pipes can't handle all the grease and it makes you sick, fine. but saying fast food tastes bad is just a lie

It can be part of the latter, for folks with sensory processing issues, speaking as someone who has such, but is not especially fussy about what they eat.

I dont hate picky eaters, their tiny little culinary world is enough of a self own that any added scorn feels cruel. Especially the people who only eat frozen foods they can microwave or fast food are incredibly sad to me. They must feel like huge babies ordering chicken fingers off the kids menu whenever they go out to eat, it sounds like an incredibly sad life to live.

And what about those people who only drink soda/energy drinks who love to talk about how gross water is? Water is basically the least offensive, most neutral, flavor there is and replacing it entirely with diet coke makes my skin crawl.

My boss won't eat bread, is actively disgusted by it. I can't make her a sandwich or anything. She will, however, eat pizza two days a week (she's like 100 pounds so can somehow get away with it), burritos, wraps, tacos, cookies, cake, and I just learned apparently alternates pancakes and waffles for breakfast.

She claims it is a texture issue but I assume she was attacked by a man holding a baguette as a child and has internalized it, it's the only explanation I have for why she won't eat bread but will eat things that are 95% identical.

I was like this for a long time.

Growing up, my parents owned a small grocery store and our house was attached to it. Among the biggest problems of being a teenager with unfettered access to junk food was from the age of 9-18, I'd only drink Mt. Dew, Verifine fruit punch, and the occasional milk. I'd drink water on infrequent camping trips once or twice a year but that was it. If the liquid wasn't sweet, I wouldn't drink it. Only after college did I start to voluntarily ween myself from the poo poo but it was a long process in my 20s and 30s going from sugared, artificial sweetener, seltzer to get to water.

Even once I was able to get a "taste" for water, it took a few years to "drink" enough. It's only been in the past year that I've actually been drinking an ounce or two from the bathroom faucet when I wake up in the middle of the night to pee.

How I managed to get to 47 without diabetes or major kidney damage, I don't know.

I'm not terribly emotional about a lot in this lovely world, but seeing parents who transition their kids off breast milk/formula to soda is heartbreaking to me.

I dont know if people have a lot of control over their taste in food. If someone tries to eat something and doesn't like the taste, I don't see how someone can be faulted for eating what they like. You can't force yourself to like something, you can only have someone eat healthier because they know that the food theyre eating has a benefit in the future.

Essentially, foodies are annoying.

this is very common in the balkans/central asia. like tzatziki.

Also we have something called kajmak that you eat with grilled meat. It's kind of between butter and milk, so it's not really yogurt but it can have a similar texture without the sourness.
