This is an easy game - I am sure we all have food that is an insult to the to the plate it has been dumped and the choice eat it or starve

A story is allowed - so I'll start

I can't stand cauliflower, cooked silver beet I view with distrust and mashing potatoes is an insult to potatoes, and cold fatty meat - for example and having it all on the same plate - enough said

Let's try it - we all have to eat and that meal appeared too often when I was growing up

You can tell us what was served in situations where you have no control - I can't be the only person who had been confronted with a meal that is scary

You don't have to tell the story - if you like - just add the food that made you think of an extended fast - well at least that meal

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Liver! As a kid we had liver every week. Most of my chewed up liver ended up hidden in my napkin.
Five knee surgeries from 1970 to 2000. Knee replacement in 2000.Spinal stenosis surgery in May of 2002. Diagnosed with Pseudogout in 2005, effecting hands, knees, and shoulders. Emergency surgery in March of 2006 for spinal infection of L 2 and L 3. During surgery, discovered I had Cauda Equina Syndrome. Spine became unstable after surgery and had 360 fusion with 10 pedicle screws, plates and rods in April of 2007. Retired early as a high school principal. Recently, have had trigger finger surgery on both hands as well as surgery for severe bi-lateral Carpal Tunnel disease.

Brussel Sprouts and Liver

I am sure there are other foods I don't like also. I usually try them once and maybe have them again if it would offend someone if I didn't.

I just found out the hard way I can't eat dates. My Dr told me to increase fiber, I got sooo sick from them. Sigh another thing I can't eat. Gee I wonder why I don't enjoy eating.

I thought I was allergic to eggs - but I'm not - I'm allergic to Sulphur Dioxide - a gas produced inside an egg present inside the egg before it goes off - but absent in a fresh egg

So eggs - darn it - I can never trust how old they are unless I have the hens - and I did for years

Liver, kidney and fish with it's head on.
7 years of back pain with small tears L3-4/L4-5, but able to walk 4-5 miles a day until Jan 2013 when groin pain began. PT and other therapy made things worse. Back pain increased to where I could only sit for a few minutes, limiting ability to drive or socialize. Slowly improving now. Last MRI April 2014 showed annular tear at L3/4, bulging disc L4/5 and several large tarlov cysts in lower thoracic and sacral nerve roots. Large haemangioma T9. Chronic back pain.

I was in hospital having surgery - and it was my first meal since - and I was in the process of getting an appetite for anything that had a mother and anything that didn't

So I took the lid of the soup - aaaahhhhhh - it was mushroom and I get sick eating them

Okay - main meal - I have already mentioned my problem with eggs unless I owned their mothers - and there was a mountain of it

Dessert - they cannot stuff up dessert - but rhubarb pie - failed on all accounts

Where did they get the idea for this meal

They asked me if I would like some sandwiches - yes - that would be okay

And they brought in egg and lettuce

I agree with that Roni - I think all of those are offal

When I buy fish and chips I prefer King George Whiting - beautiful fish - my daughter groans - she says she can taste the dirt - they all eat flake

Flake comes from school shark - I think that's disgusting

Mmmm veal.  I like veal.  I like goat cheese too.  My best lady is allergic to cow milk so it's all goat or sheep for her.  We've even started cooking with it.

What I can't stand is sushi.  I went with my friends to try it and they were paying so of course I had to eat some.  Guess what?  Raw fish, tastes like raw fish.  I've always hated the smell of raw fish or someone cleaning a fish and that's exactly what it tasted like.

I have a Japanese friend who goes to Hiroshima to visit her mother as often as she can -

She loves sushi - but she not eat it in Australia
don'
I have seen signs in some supermarkets warning the great Australian Fish-n-chips and pies-at-the-football warnings about eating raw fish - but their product is prepared by someone who is qualified

But I just don't trust it

So I fugu it

Cooked or canned spinach..eww, yuck, nasty. My mother (real hateful broad not my step mommy who is my mom in every sense of the word) anyway, my mother would make me eat it right out of the can as a punishment... such horrid stuff.
Though I love baby spinach in my salads.

Any fish except tuna fish in the can and fish sticks that are coated in potatoes.
Seafood...all of it is gross!

Hey Red
 
I agree - some food is an insult to the plate it's sitting on and an insult to the stomach and I got my own back after been forced to eat spinach - I threw up all over the floor - and not just the spinach and I was too young and too sick to be made to clean it up myself
 
Raw greens of most kinds are great - I eat a lot of green stuff - baby spinach used to be one of them but I got food poisoning when there was a batch of contaminated baby spinach - that is - the plants themselves were contaminated - and I have lost my interest in baby spinach now - but happily eat the spinach I have growing in my garden raw.
 
I do not like tuna either and fish sticks coated in potatoes - eeww horrible
 
I love salmon - but those prawns all lying pink and innocent with their black eyes looking at me - can't eat them - or shell fish -
 
I can't mashed potato - it's an insult to potatoes - even steamed potatoes can be really nice with some butter and mint - but don't mash mine - I like them baked and chips too
 
Perhaps I am only half Irish - but the Irish love vegetables - they have four every mealtime - baked potato, mashed potato, steamed potato and chipsWink

I have never tried liver or gizzards but I am pretty sure that I would yarf if made to even try a little piece of it.... I am actually making a nasty face right now just at the thought.

And mushrooms, I have tried over and over to eat them and I simply can't. I seriously have almost fooled myself into thinking I am allergic to them.

Mashed potatoes are some of my favorites. Potatoes of pretty much any sort are delicious!

Oh and I lied, I had a slice of cheesecake today as well, with some cherries on top. Yummmmmoooo

Me I love mushrooms, a spinach salad with raw mushrooms and bacon bits-yum. I like liver and onions but with my health issues I was told I can't eat any organ food. I have a hard time eating stuff with gravy cause most the gravy today is made with wheat flour ,ours was made with corn starch. Beef stew is something I didn't like but I think that was the way my Mom made it the meat was always way to chewy. I would chew and chew and then gag.

Red - I agree with you on the mushrooms - I don't like the smell much - and I thought that I was being intolerant because after all - each one is a real fun guy
 
Anyway - I friend of mine came to lunch and got two pies at a sandwich shop near here - and hers was mushroom but mine was plain
 
After a while she said
 
"I can't find any mushrooms in my pie" - and I stopped stuffing my face and looked and said - "That's cause they're in mine"
 
I stopped eating my pie but still - I went outside and rolfed all over my pavers - I think I did that when I was a kid - but I have forgotten - it's not the taste - they make me throw up
-
Elizabeth - I don't like any of that much at all - but I know how to make gravy without wheat flour - but then - I have to make a roast dinner and use the juices from the meat.
 
My brother and I could not tolerate meat fat - I still cut all the fat off and grill meat - but my mother would make braised steak and onions and object when my brother and I refused to eat. Years later she told me - she would try to make us eat it but at the same time we would throw up - it makes me wonder at times.
 
I don't like stew much to this day but when I am shopping with a helper I have had them comment on my purchasing the best cuts of the little bit of meat I buy - and the best vegetables - "Ah - the price - how can I afford that?"
 
I am only feeding myself and have strong feelings about the quality of the meat, fruit and vegetables I eat.
 
But meat fat - that has to be bad - they keep telling us about what food we need to eat or avoid to live longer - and I agree with that one

Cauliflower and mash potatoes
I dislike both of them but put them together on the same plate and it's a pure insult to the vegetables, the plate, the cutlery, the tablecloth -
I could go on...............................but let's not

I like ice-cream - I love ice-cream. I enjoy plain vanilla the best - I could eat vanilla ice-cream three times a day and call it breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don't of course - but I feel terribly deprived if there is no ice-cream in the fridge.

That sounds pretty cool Roni - I like coffee ice-cream too - and Rum and Raison
 
In fact going to an ice-cream bar is dangerous - there are so many different kinds of ice-cream I never know what to get - I could try everything

The best flavor of ice cream was at a village with a museum that sold ice cream different flavors but the best was their cheese cake flavor. It was fantastic.

I never forget this one - it causes me anguish -
 
I really dislike tea unless it's made properly in a tea pot
 
An so many people offer or suggest a cup of tea and I cringe.
 
If they give me breakfast in a public hospital they always bring tea - and depending on the whim of the tray-carriers - I might wangle coffee
 
I don't drink much coffee either -
 
But tea bags in a cup - ah Wilted-Flower
