What about salads? Do you eat salads?

Really, I'm just concerned about health here. I've never heard of anyone who didn't like vegetables - period. And just potatoes, corn, & green beans are not enough to keep you healthy.

Perhaps it's the way you've had vegetables cooked that's turned you off? I absolutely hated all canned vegetables except for corn. Then I had them freshly cooked until just crisp/tender & fell in love with all of them. Not to mention all the different kinds of vegetables out there. Certainly you haven't tried them all - cooked properly.

I think you should start experimenting more.

Leasts vavorites

In inverse order:

3. Eyeball
In the early 70's I was at an international pot-luck organized and attended by members of many congregations led by Babtists and Mormans. There were folks from all over the world but we were well represented by Vietnamese, some of whom had been recently airlifted from atop our Saigon embassy. I opened a seaweed package and found an eyeball staring up at me. I might eat an eyeball if it doesn't require eye to eye contact but I will never go looking for one.

2. Canned carrots.
In my opinion canned carrots taste awful! Raw carrots are inexpensive, taste great, easy to cook, and will keep long without refrigeration. Canning might be useful in third world environments but I can't imagine any circumstance that would cause me to buy them.

1. Foie gras.
So far, this is the one and only food that I have never tasted and still feel compelled from which to forever abstain. It is not so much the inhumane treatment of the goose, as the bourgeoisie attitude of the FoodTV generation that causes me to boycott foie gras.

I am with you on the Foie gras... I have never tried it myself and never will.

Grits and collard greens. I've tried and tried and tried again because I have a lot of southern friends who tell me I don't like them because no one has "prepared them right." Luckily I'm one of those folk who can eat a bite or three of everything and anything in the name of being polite. Oh, yes; believe it or not, I don't care for salmon.

Pickled beets, organ meat (mostly, still enjoy chicken gizzards occasionally), blue cheese (when your cheese turns blue, it's time to get new cheese!). And other than that, I can't think of much else. Wife dislikes celery and olives. And she's not fond of mangos.

Onions and I have a mutual non-aggression pact. I don't eat them, and they don't hurt me!

unless you are eating pure cane sugar, you are eating sugar made with beets
