Wierd Food Quirks
0

11 posts in this topic

I'm sure everyone's got at least one. The kind of quirk that affects how and what you eat that has nothing to do with health, nutrition or disorder. C'mon, let's have a little fun with food! :-)

 

I'll start. For as long as I can remember, I absolutely can NOT tolerate...banana strings. Every time I peel or eat a banana, I have to search it thoroughly to make sure I won't eat one of the strings by accident. They don't taste any different, they won't hurt me I know. But the thought of eating one grosses me OUT!! I don't even like the feel of them on my fingers if they swing around and stick to them. EEEWWW! :blink:

 

Ok, who else out there is willing to admit to having this kind of weirdness?

I'm right there with you on banana strings! I've always had to peel them all off too. Not only that, but I won't eat a banana unless it has lots of salt on it. My grandfather taught me to salt them when I was a little kid and they are really good that way. Once when I was working in an ice cream shop I saw one of my customers salting the banana on her banana split. I said, "Hey! I thought I was the only one who did that!" And you know what? She told me HER grandfather taught her to do that!

Since I was little I've always eaten one food on my plate at a time, then moved on to the next one. Apparently this is a trait my uncle has as well. I also always ate my things like Lucky Charms a particular way, the cereal first, then each type of marshmallow one at a time. Fruit Loops were one color at a time. Things like that. I started before I can remember. I remember even at 3 or 4 I'd go hungry if I had to rather than break my habit if my mom was dragging me out of the house. I still eat my foods one at a time, not sure why and I don't do it on purpose. I tried to break the habit once but it was uncomfortable to do and it isn't hurting anything so I just eat how I eat.

 

Also, I like to salt my melons of all types. I learned it from my grandfather. :D

I'm not much for salt, so I've never tried it on fruit. The only thing I've ever added salt to is cottage cheese.

 

I eat (or ate) Lucky Charms the exact same way! In the 80's there was Pac Man cereal, the habit started with that. It made the "fun" last longer to eat it that way. :-)

 

When I was a kid, I refused to eat mixed-up foods like a vegetable medley, peas & carrots, that kind of thing. The picture I had in my head of how your stomach was set up was a vast and complicated set of "compartments" for each food. If I ate two mixed foods, the compartments couldn't separate them, so that's how you got a stomachache. Oddly enough, there were compartments for pizza, soup, waffles with butter and syrup, but not things like salad. Go figure..... :-)

Before I quit dairy I used to like to put cottage cheese onto hot, cooked veggies - the cheese would melt and get all gooey... Yum. I know a lot of people eat cottage cheese with fruit but that just seems odd to me.  LOL

I LOVE cottage cheese! And like you, I don't like it with fruit. I was never crazy about pasta so if I was having spaghetti sauce I would heat the sauce (but not TOO hot) and pour it over cottage cheese. I also prefer cottage cheese instead of salad dressing. And when I used to live where I could get edible fish and chips, I always asked for a side of cottage cheese instead of cole slaw.

Me too! I would eat in order starting with the healthiest. As a teenager, I also would divide my M&Ms by color and start with the smallest pile first. I used to also get very upset if my food groups touched each other. My mom tried buying me a plate with dividers once but I was insulted. Ha!

Once I hit my Tweens, I also had to eat an even number of items and sip an even number of sips. This remained until I changed my diet, ahem, and my OCD resolved! Now there's nothing better than three pieces of bacon! :P

I didn't know this until I got married but the wife pointed out that I eat one item at a time in a clockwise way.

 

I also have issues with textures of food. Eggs make me gag.

Glad I'm not the only one. I've never paid attention to whether or not I have a direction but I'm curious now.

My husband is a huge texture freak. It's a real challenge feeding him sometimes.

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      By now, you've likely heard about people going gluten-free, ridding their diets of foods such as pastas, breads, cereals, and processed foods that ... View the full article
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
