Are you a picky eater?

I haven’t counted but it would probably be around 30 as well. My food issues were a primary driving factor that made me realize I could be autistic, and I discussed them with my psychologist. Having an explanation makes it much easier for people to understand and respect my food tolerances and intolerances. For years, I would start with “I’m a vegetarian” and then get offered a full plate of vegetables that I couldn’t eat, and it was always awkward. I’ve switched to “I’m autistic and struggle with eating a variety of food. I’d be happy to eat before the gathering / bring something for everyone to share.” Much better.
Today I wrote a list of all the foods I will eat because I’ve been told I’m a picky eater and I wanted to find out if I actually am. I included things I make myself eat to stay healthy (like vegetables.) I broke down full dishes into their ingredients, but I counted pre-made things like chips or peanut butter as 1. In total my list has 33 things on it. I’m curious to know if anyone else has done this and how many foods do you eat? There are 3.1 things I refuse to eat. Kale cause it's bitter, Celery cause it's like trying to eat hair, Figs cause of the wormy texture, and the brown part of a banana because it looks gross.
I’m extremely picky and therefore eat extremely unhealthy since vegetable, some fruits and other healthy food are a big no-no from me❌ I used to be a really picky eater - everything had to be plain (no sauce or spice) no foods touching etc. I think that was a learnt trait though because white my parents were eating other foods later in the evening after work, my brother and I were fed by the babysitter 5 nights a week who made us plain pasta with tuna on the side or potatoes and fish fingers - those kinda meals.
I only have one food that's linked to a bad experience and that's yoghurt. Was made to eat it once by a teacher cause it was the only thing left in the canteen at lunchtime. Despite insisting I hated it, she forced me to - came home after school and puked up all night long. The thought of it and texture just make me want to puke to this day (this happened around 13 years or so ago). I'd say expose your child to as many flavours as you can and let them try your meals if you are eating something different. I gradually came around and now at 21 I'd say I like quite a wide variety of foods - mostly due to moving out and experimenting with what I want to cook. For me, I think it was lack of exposure to a variety of foods, and being forced to eat. My mom rotated the same 3 or 4 meals for dinner, and would always include something she knew I didn't like. To this day I despise sweet potatoes because she would force me to eat a pile of them at dinner. I didn't even have the option of going to bed hungry, which I think I gladly would have taken.

What is some of your favorite food to bring with you when you're gonna eat outdoors? Like for a picnic? 🥪🧃

Rice and some fried foods? Sausages, nuggets, fried chicken. Idk what other families prepared for their picnics but my family bring fried food bc it doesn't have any gravy so there's no mess. We never really went for picnic but if we're on a long trip, we'll pack our foods like so :)

As much as I don’t like vegans, I do like some vegan food. Best thing about vegan chicken products like burgers is 0% chance of bone in them. No more breaking teeth for me. What vegan food do you like? And have you ever found bone in food you shouldn’t have?

As far as I know, I haven't tried any vegan specific foods!
I've had things that state they are "vegan friendly", but only like small snacky things :)
As for bones, I've been quite lucky to not find bone in anything it shouldn't be in!
As much as I dont like vegans I do like some vegan food Best thing about vegan

Do you like travelling?

I am a tireless traveler. Travel makes me feel good, gives me energy, and makes me happy.
I was just in ayyuthaya (ancient city near Bangkok) I only had a rough idea of how to get around and I rented a bicycle instead of a motorbike cus I was a cheapskate. It ended up being 100x harder to get around and 100x more confusing. But the fun was that I just went where I felt was right. At each of the ruins, I had lovely conversations with other travelers about their trips and the locals are always helpful when I was absolutely lost.
Travelling may bring people joy through many ways. You may like to see beautiful cities and their landmarks, or simply their architecture and general atmosphere. You may want to see how different nature is around the globe and how surprising it may be to see the great outdoors. You may want to engage in different activities, from paragliding to dance classes, from rafting to riding camels in the desert, from balloon trips to hiking on mountains... you may want to experience different cultures and foods, you may want to know the history of the world in museums, or you may just want spend a few days relaxing in a beach or in a secluded lodge... you may want to know people from other places or you may want to go to big parties in a place where nobody knows you. These are some of the reasons why people travel, and only a few of them are applicable to me, for instance. Maybe some of these will appeal to you, or maybe none at all. It's for those moments that you just can't experience by staying home. I just got back from a trip where I could watch the sun come up while overlooking cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde and nobody else was around. There was a buffalo munching on grass right outside my cabin one evening. I've had too many extraordinary experiences to count over the years and that's what keeps me getting out there to places I've never been to.
My main hobby was photography. I then got into travel, and found that they were very complementary hobbies. The thrill of enjoying and taking in some place new is a cool buzz, especially when you have a camera in your hand and want to capture the moment to help relive it later on.
It's really hard to explain to be honest, it's just a feeling of exhilaration and excitement I get when I get to see new places and exploring an unknown (to me) area. It's a kind of passion which I don't really experience when doing anything else. The world we live in is so beautiful and there's so many amazing things to see, and I just enjoy seeing them :) whether it be interesting sights, cities, nature, or just people. At the end of the day we only have so much time on this Earth, I figure I may as well try and see as many interesting places as possible!

Have you ever eaten something weird? ☹️🤢

samirmslmani’s Profile PhotoM.Samir ♥️♐️ مُحَمَّد سَمير
Weirdness is subjective. I probably eat plenty of foods which I consider to be perfectly delicious and normal, but others might find strange or disgusting. I am a big fan of sushi, for example. I think it's just the tastiest thing ever - I know plenty folks who are freaked out by it though.
Ditto for putting pineapple on pizza. I loooove pineapple pizza. The rest of the world seems to have very strongly against it, though.

Why do you think certain households has smells? Do you think yours smells good? Lol 😝🤷 (this question is sponsored by my own late night bedtime thoughts... You're welcome in advance, lol)

Of course. Whatever cleaning products you use, the foods you cook, the soaps and lotions etc all contribute to the smell of your home. I love the smell of my home personally

Would you like to move to the USA?

ognevstepan’s Profile Photo_ognev | stepan_
Nope, I would not like to move to the USA.
The health care system is one of the worst ones I’ve heard of and the country is very expensive. They also have lots of ingredients in their regular foods that are illegal in Europe due to how bad it is for you. 😬
Oh lastly, the school is in my opinion very self centerend, lots of Americans don’t get lessons and history lessons about the world, let alone proper geography lessons, just about their own country. And they pay a fortune to study, people often are in debt for life 😬
The people there are great though 😊

How’s Cayden doing?!? I miss updates about him! 🥺

He’s doing good! He’s getting super big. He’ll be a year and a half in two weeks which is just insane. He’s talking and understanding a lot of what we say nowadays. He loves planes, I took him to my dads hangar the other day to watch my dad take off and he absolutely loved it. Cayden also loves going to the park, loves picking flowers, going on “coffee dates” to starbucks, he loves reading his books every night. And he loves all foods like his Aunt Delly, he claims his favorite is “candy” that his Uncle Ry gives him even though he knows he’s not supposed to.. Ryland only does it to be the “favorite uncle”… and it works hahaha. Cayden’s just becoming more and more of a toddler and it’s so fun to watch him figure out life. I still can’t process the fact we have a toddler already but I’m trying to enjoy every moment because he’s only as little as he will ever be.

How do you stay so good looking then Sydney?

Umm, I watch what I eat. In my house we don’t eat a lot of frozen foods. We cook everything pretty much from scratch. I don’t drink alcohol, that’s the main thing. That won’t help you loose weight. All I drink is water. Once in a while I will have a tea, or coffee, or soda. But it’s water all the time. You can’t say I’m watching what I eat and just a salad from a fast food place. You can’t go to the store, and get a bunch of frozen foods, and get nothing fresh. ✌🏼

The men who were accompanying him worried too much about it since they had never seen him with that terrified face. And his trembling murmurs were a strong bewilderment for them.
Neither dared to ask what was going on, but assuming how his boss was… it was definitely not a good thing.

*Violet eyes watch them warily from beneath the hood, waiting for them to go by before entering a store to stock up on bottled water and dried foods that would keep awhile, when she gets back outside, she realizes, she doesn't see any of them anymore, which was concerning*

⤿ * At the disappearance of these men, a terrible rumble sounded in the background. Gunshots, screams, every element that defined a bloody fight cleared the entire area leaving it completely empty.
This also drew a crowd of alliance men like a tsunami. And there were not only three, four, but an approximate fifty armed and exasperated men.
One of them, nervous because of the pressure around, bumped into the hooded woman, but he hadn't seen her face. He was behind her.

What is a fun or interesting fact about your hometown?

The memories, the sunrise and sunset breeze & scenery, the friendly people, the cheerful environment, the flowers and smell, the foods and welcoming hand, the small stalls that sell ice blended & the traditional steam bun I like, the evening bicycle riding, the long rows of palm trees throughout the way to go back home...
Everything, honestly. It was just me who didn't experience everything wholeheartedly, cause I thought I always have time. Haih. Tgok dan sedih balik 😪.

Soha ne vásároljatok a Merian Foods Kft.-től. (Orsi termékek és stb) Se virslit se májast se semmit. Légy lárvás és egervizeletes minden amit csak újra mosnak. Nézzetek szét a boltokban óvatosan. Mellesleg ennek fejében verik a dolgozókat.... Senki nem csinál semmit , mert félnek....😶

Én dolgoztam ott 7 napot (szerencsére csak annyit), szóval sajnos tudom, hogy ez nem hazugság, mert személyesen láttam....

How to get bright and white face?

Get your skin healthy. Wash your face with a mild cleanser, a good face mask should help, moisturise daily, avoid sun exposure and use a good sunscreen, eat healthy foods, fix your sleeping schedule, don't stress. Appreciate your skin for it protects you and don't obsess over it. Bright and white face se kuch nahi hota.

Can sea food be vegan or nah?

grandmasterqtipp2’s Profile PhotoRose
Vegetarians do not eat the flesh of animals. Thus, by this definition, fish and seafood are not vegetarian ( 1 ). Some vegetarians, known as lacto-ovo-vegetarians, eat certain animal products, such as eggs, milk, and cheese. As one of the main types of vegetarian diets, a vegan diet involves abstaining from eating any meat or animal products. This includes meat and poultry, as well as fish and shellfish. Vegans also avoid other foods derived from animals, including honey, dairy products, and gelatin so no sea food can’t be vegan food

I saw you take photos of food. Do you have a photo of something that you loved? Where was it?

This was at a cafe that sadly is no longer open! They specialised in vegetarian foods! So this was the veggie hot dogs and chips!
It was so damn tasty! The sausages had a great herb taste and the chips weren't greasy! Plus it was fair price!
The cafe did awesome teas and cold drinks too! So here we had cherry cola and an elderflower drink :)
I miss this place so damn much! Much the owners wanted to try a different venture..

Is there anything you were hesitant to try eating but once you did, you ended up liking it?

Honestly, a few things.
Because of my phobia, I’m not really adventurous with trying new food ( or new food places that I’ve not grown up eating)
So when I got with my partner, someone who likes to try new foods and places it was major for me.
Since being with my partner I have tried and found multiple new food places to eat from, I have tried multiple things from the menu at the Chinese, and I’ve tried salmon which was delicious

Do you like to try new foods or would you rather stick to what you know?

NineGDxFour’s Profile Photog™
I love trying new foods. When we go shopping at an international store I always pick one item to see what it tastes like. It's not always what I expect but it's fun trying something new.

What kind of eater are you? Fast or slow. Fussy/picky or advantageous (will eat 99% of anything)

BlueEyesWhiteGuy’s Profile PhotoReaper
I wouldn't call myself a "fussy" eater but I'm certainly a creature of habit and, when it comes to food, I tend to stick with things I know I enjoy. I eat a lot of the same meals week in and week out. That said, I am not opposed to trying new foods - as long as it's vegetarian.

Do you think most vegetarians and vegans push their views onto other people?

As a vegan, most do, yes and I absolutely hate it! Yes I would like for everyone to stop hurting animals BUT it's not my choice what others eat, it's theirs, the same as it's my choice to be vegan, not theirs, you aren't gonna convince people to change by being preachy. I just encourage people to try new things. My dad hates vegan food, so my mum will give him something of mine to try, not me, (he's really picky and will day he hates something even if he has never had it) he tries it, likes it, then we tell him, we aren't tricking him as such (mum also eats meat) we are just encouraging him to try new foods, just because he has one bite doesn't mean he has to have a whole meal without knowing but it means he can decide himself to have it at a later date. Just to be clear, he is also VERY picky about non vegan food 👍🏻

I’m impatiently waiting for the cinnamon rolls to be done 🤤 Do you eat breakfast type foods or breads at night instead? What are your favorites? 🥐🥚🧇

I love cinnamon rolls for breakfast when we have them. Most of the time I eat Thomas English Muffins for breakfast. At night when I am watching a movie I prefer ice cream or mango bars, but I know I need to replace these treats with a good old fashion apple.
For bread my favorite is fresh Italian bread from the bakery. Once in a while, if we are running low on food I will scrounge up some plain Cheerios and pour honey on them. Darn... now I'm getting hungry. Do you get hungry whenever you talk about food? I do. It's like when you see someone yawn and then it makes you yawn, right? Or whenever you watch someone spoon feeding a baby and as they place the spoon in the babies mouth they pucker up their lips as though somehow making faces will help the baby eat better or something. I mean I do the same thing. I've actually caught myself making funny faces when I am feeding a baby. And when they refuse to eat I pretend the spoon is an airplane complete with jet engine noises. And it actually works and causes the baby to smile and then chew and swallow the food. lol
Sorry...got off topic.
