Picky Eaters Anonymous

I like to claim that I am not a picky eater (shh, I can hear the 'say what's' from here). And I think that the reason I firmly stand on this particular platform is that I like most foods that people hate. Brussel sprouts! Yum! Lima Beans - please sir could I have some more? Beets, yes! Asparagus, mmm mmm!

On the other hand, there is a list equally long of things I will not eat, which is where I believe this reputation of 'picky eater' comes from. Mozzarella - no thanks. Eggplant - compost it. Meat - must not touch my food. Fish - can touch my food, but will not be placed in my mouth. eggs - must be disguised - veiled in (cheddar) cheesy quiche or in cake; they'll not be consumed scrambled or poached or fried.

Then there is the food that I wish I could eat but sadly cannot. This is known as "wheat."

Now over the past 5 years I've slowly begun to add foods to my palate. Items like zucchini, olives (of all colors), pears, cooked spinach, and cooked mushrooms.

What won't you eat?
