    Sorry, but I love blue cheese and avocado.

    Tomato soup.

  2. Kevin H says:

    I can’t stomach a church culture where women are viewed as horny, gold-digging, jezebels.

    Oops, wrong thread. πŸ™‚

    Kale. This is truly the most vile vegetable. It is spinach on steroids times ten. And I don’t like spinach.

    Mushrooms run a close second.

  3. Michael says:

    I love blue cheese!

  4. not that liberal Bob says:

    Boy you guys are killing me!

    I love avocados, brussel sprouts (my wife doesn’t so we rarely have them), blue cheese and other aromatic cheeses.

    I’ll tell you what’s nasty, deep fried mac and cheese. Yes it tastes ok but the thought of what it is doing to my arteries makes me gag at the thought of it.

  5. Raw tomatoes, by themselves. I can eat them on anything, or cooked, but just a slice of tomatoe completely grosses me out.

  6. Michael says:


    Almost everything I love to eat is deadly…I give it no thought and have another pork chop. πŸ™‚

  7. Bob Sweat says:

    Kevin πŸ˜†

    Thanks for making me remember how much I dislike kale! But mushrooms? Smothered on top of steak!

  8. Bob Sweat says:

    I love cheese, but when someone cuts it, it grosses me out!

  9. Bob Sweat says:

    Anyone hate okra?

  10. Nick says:

    I used to hate Brussels Sprouts. With the right recipe, it’s delightful. And such recipe would invariably include bacon.

    Me? I like butter. I like almonds. Put them both together in some ice cream flavor and you’ve got this awful nastiness that they serve in the lower echelons of the netherworld.

  11. Kevin H says:

    Bob S,

    I don’t like the flavor of mushrooms. But what really grosses me out is their consistency. That chewy-slimy feel just grosses me out.

    Now tomato soup on the other hand, I don’t know what you’re problem is. Give me a grilled cheese sandwhich to go along with a bowl of tomato soup and saltines and I’m a happy man.

  12. Michael says:


    My significant other loves brussels sprouts and tells me continually that prepared well they are delightful.
    She said the same thing about tofu, which I believe is a byproduct of demon waste.

  13. Bob Sweat says:

    Wow! I finally know what demon waste smells like!

  14. Bob Sweat says:

    MLD doesn’t like anything that sticks to the pot. πŸ˜‰

  15. Brussel sprouts were the one “food” the Lord allowed Satan to create. Yuck. Although I do like avocados, Michael. πŸ™‚ Oh. And I bet NT Wright likes Brussel sprouts.

  16. Jim says:

    I’ll eat anything. I prefer to eat healthy.

  17. Jim says:

    Big boys don’t get grossed out or say “yuck”.

    …just sayin…

  18. Michael says:

    Bill Kinnon has spoken truth about the creation of the sprout.
    This is a little known theological truth. πŸ˜‰

  19. I tried blue cheese once and didn’t care for it. It tastes like I would think a dirty sock would taste like if I put it in my mouth.

    I don’t care to eat boiled okra, but I will eat it.

    Fried okra though is the bomb!

    Honestly, though I have not found anything that I would refuse to eat again.

    I was so hungry once on a tank range, that after a tank came by and churned up a good amount of dust to cover the chocolate pudding I had, I wolfed it down anyways.

    It would take a lot to gross me out.

  20. Dude says:

    LIVER IS NASTY!……..lima beans are a
    close second.I love spinich and brussel spouts……corn on the cobb.Over all I’m not finicky about food.

  21. Bob Sweat says:


    The thing about fried okra is that you don’t need to chew, it slides down your throat. Sort of like snot.

  22. Boiled okra is like that, but not fried okra.
    My wife won’t eat boiled okra for that reason.
    But, fried okra is like manna around here.

  23. JoelG says:

    Sweet pickles are wrong… just wrong.

  24. Ixtlan says:

    well, since its required:

    Any type of organ meats. Liver, chicken hearts, the giblets they leave inside the turkey, chitterlings,even menudo doesn’t work for me.

  25. filbertz says:

    so far, the only thing on the list I’m disgusted by is liver. Too dense, musky, chalky, pasty…

    indulge me with my short list, please:

    *head cheese–really, what is it? (besides disgusting)
    *liver wurst–see liver above, but at its wurst.
    *raw onions–too pungent & overpowering…and my burps are corrupt for hours.

  26. filbertz says:

    tripe is offal.

  27. Tim says:

    Pickles. I hate pickles with a passion. In my experience, it is nothing but a otherwise wonderful cucumber that is half-rotten.

    My dear bride tried for a long time before we were married to get me to eat pickles. When I physically turned green the last time, she swore I would never have to try pickles again. I cherish my official dispensation. πŸ™‚

  28. EricL says:

    I worked with a fellow that hated any food that squirts. If you bit it and it squirted in your mouth, then he wouldn’t touch it, be it a tomato or orange or any other juicy food.

    Myself, I detest liver, tongue and other innards. I also dislike any stinky cheese. Why would you put anything that foul in your mouth?

    Maybe I could include some of these awful foods in my next novel as a torture method. Hmm….

  29. PP Vet says:

    I thought this was a religious site.

  30. Steve Wright says:

    As an adult I just don’t eat a lot of stuff that otherwise would gross me out as a child and half of it I probably would like if I gave it another try, but I remember as a kid when my Mom would always make a nice balanced dinner with some sort of vegetables but there were just a couple items I so despised that even she would not make me eat any of it as I would gag.

    Beets were one.

    Turnips another.

    And we often had sauerkraut and hot dogs (sans sauerkraut for me). But she still made me pick the hot dog pieces out of the kraut (rather than cook them on the side for me). Just the slight kraut juice was enough to ruin a perfectly good hot dog. πŸ™‚

  31. Michael says:

    PP Vet,

    Sometimes religious people need to just relax and talk food… πŸ™‚

  32. Xenia says:

    Sushi. Smells like a beach at low tide: dead fish and seaweed.

  33. Mmmm….sauerkraut, throw in some kielbasa and I am in.
    This thread is just making me hungry.

  34. Michael says:



  35. Sarah says:

    Michael, I am not sure our friendship can continue. Seriously…avocados?!! Love them. My middle boy will sit and eat a whole one, sliced with a little garlic salt.

    I used to be very finicky, but my husband has cured me for the most part. He is far more adventurous in eating. I still cannot stomach stuffed eggplant, though…my mom used to make it and I was forced to sit at the table one night for 3 hours until I gagged down the last few bites.

  36. London says:

    In the middle of the light conversation, I’m appealing to you to pray for Ukraine.
    They are passing laws today that take away the people’s rights of protest, researching info on police, judges, politicians and perhaps shutting down the Internet.
    All NGOs that participate in “political” activity will be considered “foreign agents” and be taxed etc
    They have alreadythreatened to shut down a church that is ministering to protestors.
    Ukraine, like us, had a constitution that said they had a right to peaceful protest and freedom of speech.
    Overnight, literally, that is no longer true.
    The US news isn’t really showing what is happening but the people are sending out an SOS.
    Russia “bailed out” Ukraine a few weeks ago with $20billiion
    Things are getting worse and it is easily feasible that the Internet, the only real source of news from there to here, will be shut off by the government.
    It’s like watching a history book being written.

  37. Xenia says:

    London, will do!

  38. Sarah says:

    Praying, is a bit overwhelming to watch from here. You are right that it doesn’t seem to be getting much coverage. We have a few friends who have been missionaries in that area and have been watching.

  39. erunner says:

    I can’t even be in the room if there are cooked peas nearby. The smell is enough to make me sick. Cooked lima beans, broccoli, spinach, all nauseate me. Went about 58 years not eating most all veggies raw or cooked. Doing green smoothies allows me to put this stuff into my Vitamix and create a healthy and tasty drink by adding an apple or orange.

    I love menudo, liver, mushrooms, the chicken and turkey neck, and I could order a bucket of KFC chicken skin!! πŸ™‚

    Most of all I want to be like Bob Sweat when I grow up!! :mrgreen:

  40. gomergirl says:

    London…. praying.

    Wow, I am feeling pretty picky right now. But this is ny no-go, not in a million years wiill they ever cross my lips list:

    Beans…. tried them most all kinds. hate them with a fiery purple passion. and their legume cousins.
    Raw or chunks of tomato. but put a good marinara on most anything and I will eat it.
    pickles. nasty vile yuck….
    olives. they are like pickles just olive pickles.
    mayo. mayo is what is left over from the tofu waste treatment facility.
    lastly, mustard. mayo’s yellow cousin.

    but I do eat weird stuff. Love snails and sashimi and most greens. green juice, tofu is ok, especially made into chocolate pudding. shrooms are alright if they have enough butter and garlic and snails inside. most any ethnic food is good with me.

  41. Dang! LOL you had me cracking up so hard Michael. You Oregon types are woose’s.

    We Californians love avocados the perfect food. Did you know that avocados are one of the only foods that will keep on the tree until you pick it and then it ripens a few days later after being picked. A man can live on Avocado alone…seriously. Well the Bread of the Word included of course.

    And as for Brussel sprouts…YUMMAGE!

    Not to mention that both foods are not genetic GMO creations but from the hand of Almighty God Himself.

    LOL (Still cracking up)

    You probably dislike Mexican food too…
    I live on the stuff!

    Dude your going to have to come to dinner one night, my wife is an incredible cook and I am sure you will come to like these food of the gods if given the chance. Heck we might even ship you a crate or two of them…LOL! (Still crackin up big time)

  42. Michael says:


    No can do…send them to Sarah. πŸ™‚

  43. Julie Anne says:

    Avocado: I’m drooling looking at that picture – yum

    brussel sprouts – I will only eat roasted in olive oil, fresh garlic and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. They don’t taste good any other way.

    Kale: is very good cooked as in Olive Garden’s Zuppa Tuscana (the sausage potato soup) – – or else fresh in a smoothie, but not too much. By itself it is nasty.

    I do not like liver – ew.

    And God surely made a mistake when He made the weed, cilantro. That stuff is repulsive.

  44. Xenia says:

    Cilantro tastes like soap but mixed with diced onion, it is delish.

  45. Nonnie says:

    Can’s stand salmon. I’ve tried and tried to like it as I know it is good for you, but it is way too fishy for me. Hate the smell of it. Love sushi and all the other “hated” foods mentioned, except for liver. I’ll even eat that if it is made into a pate’ and served with a nice chutney and French Baguette. Yum.

  46. Babylon's Dread says:

    Macaroni and Cheese…. HATE HATE HATE IT

  47. Linnea says:

    Avocados are….wonderful! My youngest slices one open, pours Sadie;s salsa in and has his own little guacamole party on a spoon πŸ™‚ I’m with Xenia…sushi, in fact most fish makes me gag. Can’t tolerate a raw tomato either, but do like them cooked. Organ meats have already served their purpose and shouldn’t be eaten either…

  48. Tim says:

    After #47, I’m not sure Babylon’s Dread is really from the South. πŸ˜‰

  49. Mo' coward says:

    Sour grapes.

  50. Matthew says:

    Mashed buttercup squash. Yuck! It taste like dirt.
