I'm with you on the shrimp. I rarely have it now because I can only eat it if it's been breaded. I can not eat just plain shrimp. The texture is just disgusting to me.

On the subject of texture...shrimp...I just cant make myself bite into it. Sad, because I think it looks good.
As a kid I couldn't stand the texture of cooked carrots either, but now I love them.

I love Scothish Oatmeal but I have recently discovered "Pho bo vien" which is a Vietmanese noodle & Beef Meatball soup that uses fresh mint leaves (or basil at some places) lime wedges, sprouts and jalapeno slices to garnish with. It's a little high in salt from some places but it's a large bowl(2-3 cups) for around 370 calories. I thought my friend was setting me up for something strange but it's really good! emoticon

I hear you about the texture. It is why I cannot eat yogurt. I have been trying some new foods. I have started eating the steel cut oatmeal instead of the regular kind. Now I don't like the regular kind.

Like Amber, it's often the texture that does it for me. I finally learned to make my oatmeal so dry it's like damp oats with fruit! But now I love it.

And I keep seeing you good people say "Brussels Sprouts" and all I can think of is "ewwwww!" I am going to HAVE to give them a try again soon and see if I can learn to like them, too!

I used to detest Brussel Sprouts, now I enjoy them.

I am eating more whole wheat items, but I can not stomach whole wheat noodles of any kind.

I would not eat salad until one morning my dad took me to breakfast. I was about 14 I think. He gave me a taste of his salad (yes breakfast) and I just fell in love with blue cheese! After that I starting eating salad just for the dressing. Now I love salad with tons of different veggies - and... I don't just eat blue cheese.

We, having 6 kids, always had to take a little of everything and eat it. The only thing we couldn't hack was the Hominy. We would put it in our napkins when no one was looking and get rid of it.

Spinach made me gag and I don't know why because I love it. Still hate Hominy.

Even love Liver and Onions fixed my way.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

In the ancient of days, when I was in 3rd grade, I ate school lunches. We had to eat salsd, then main entre and desert. No salad, no main entre, no salad and no main entre the no desert. One day they served a main entre of Macaroni with tomato sauce and hamburger in it. I knew I did not like it. I ate the salad and begged for dessert. No. I had to at least take a taste. Reluctantly I tried it. It was the best thing I had ever tasted at the time. I ate two large helpings and have loved it ever since. After that lesson I have tried many dishes from many different cultures and have discovered lots of incredibly delicious foods that I love to eat. I now have the size and weight to prove it

cooked cauliflower and oatmeal for me too. I had never actually tried either, and they aren't bad. I do need to add a bit of garlic and spices to the cauliflower and I HAVE to make sure the oatmeal is chewy and not mush.

A lot of the time I know I don't like foods not because of the taste, but because of the texture. So I have to keep trying different ways to cook them.

Taboule Salad - It's great on tortilla with chicken slices, hummus, lettuce, etc.

Sauteed brussels sprouts. Yeah, there's a little oil involved, so they could be healthier, but I never imagined those things could taste so good!

As a kid I didn't like anything green. Now the green vegetables are my favorite.
My biggest obstical I overcame was sushi. I always thought i needed some heat with fish....but it's good. I think it's the wasabi I actually crave though.

I have always tried new foods ever since I was young. I love fair food as we call it. Plus you could find all kinds of diffent stuff than you were used to at home. I'm always trying new things at home in fact I just got done printing recipes for some Indian food from the weekly sparkpeople I just read. We usually rotate between asian, mexican and american styles. Now it's time to broaden the horizen again. It's time to try falafels and we're going to spice up the cauliflower and make it korma style. I am the cook and my family loves me.

Tofu - Also I found I prefer fruit instead of a donut for a snack. If I really want a treat I add cool whip lite to my berries.

cooked carrots
low/fat cheeses
hummus
yogurt (in smoothies)
English cucumbers (the regular are still too strong for me)
chicken and turkey sausage
