    I Won't Eat That...

    I am a picky eater, and tend to stick to the simplest things in the food world. This drives my dad crazy. He keeps telling me that one day, I'll be eating everything that he is, and that one day, the diet I have going right now just won't work anymore. But I'm ok, because one day...

    Same Thing Ever Since I Was A Child.

    Many of you might be like wtf to this, but I don't eat pizza. It doesn't look that appetizing to me. I mostly just eat chicken and fish products. I eat sausage and potato foods like fries and hash-browns for breakfast. Those foods aren't really doing much for my insides and so I...

    I Am A Picky Eater

    I have a love-and-hate relationship with food. I can't eat a cooked meal or a nicely prepared dish at all. I hate living in a country where almost everything contains egg/milk product/oil. I am not lactose intolerant, but candies/chocolate/milk trigger terrible migraine. I tried...

    Rice is the staple food of Indonesian meals

    but I HATE it. Rice is eaten three times a day with every meal. You have not eaten until you have had rice.Rice IS the meal. The meats and vegetables and sauces are just condiments. Unlike other cultures that eat their rice steaming hot most Indonesians prefer it cold and...

    I love cheese so much.

    My diet consists of processed foods and canned foods. I eat very little fresh foods. I love Kraft Mac and cheese, pizza, cheeseburgers, chicken, spaghetti, hot dogs, and not much more. I put ketchup on all my meats. I never try anything. I love junk foods.

    I will only eat cucumbers in pickle form. If something has a texture I don't like (even if it tastes good) I won't try it again. I will only eat carrots if they're uncooked. I'm the hardest person to please when it comes to food haha.
