Yucky Food 😖😖

I have an idea for all of us out there that are feeling sad, alone, or just blue tonight. ( myself included) Let’s see how many answers we can get! Tell us the one food your parent(s), grandparents, or caregiver would make that you just hated and never wanted to eat!?!?😖😖😖

C’mon... its something for us to do and it just might take our minds off of feeling bad. Reply, or just follow along.

For me it was liver and onions!🤢🤢 I would sit for hours at the table. ( we couldn’t waste food in our house)!!

Stuffed bitter gourd and lamb ! 🤢

I’d pick out the lamb and barely eat it

Wasn’t allowed to move until I finished it

My neighbor just killed himself. I hated eating peas when I was a toddler

what? tonight, just now? im sooo very sorry and sad. how are you doing?

Well I just knew him a short time. I tried to be his friend but he twisted everything I said or did into something bad. I could tell he was very mentally ill. So I backed off. He is in a better place. I am sure of that. I'm sorry that he left us.

I'm doing ok. He was older. He made his choice. I'm sure he was suffering.

I’m so sorry that he didn’t get help. Nothing is that bad to check out. There’s always help...support, encouragement somewhere! Glad that you realize how sick he was. Coco, you’re a strong person to be so level headed!! I’m glad that you shared it with me.... I’m here if you need to talk more. Wishing you peace!❤️

Thank you last nerve. Hope you are doing ok. I feel peaceful

That is good. Things could always be worse. We all have disappointments and rejection in life. God and Jesus loves us. I wish I could be closer to God

My parents never made me do that but I don't remember anything I really hated anyway. When I was 16 though I stopped eating meat and though my mother grumbled she didn't try and force me. She did nag me quite a lot though.

I am a nightmare at Christmas as though I am not a fussy eater generally I don't eat meat and don't like Christmas pudding! I am going out for lunch soon and I am having a roast dinner but with fish instead! Should be lovely. x

Lima beans. When eating them I would literally gag and my parents would get so mad. They thought I was taking. I really hated them. I had to sit at the table till I ate them all. Then I urinated myself because I had to pee so bad but they didn't believe me. Another night I stayed there till 11pm when I fell asleep with my head on the table. When I awoke I was in my bed. Eventually my mother just quit making them.

Reply

Lima beans aren’t my cup of tea either!! Thankfully, my Dad hated the too so my Mom never made them! Phew! ( dodged a bullet there). But i was just like you about the liver. ( I’d rather knaw on old shoe leather) pretty much the same consistency! It was always a battle of wills with makin me sit there... i fell off the chair once cause I fell asleep! So there, Mom and Dad! 🤣🤣. Lima beans 👎🏻👎🏻

Now it's brussel sprouts with my wife. She says if the kids have to try everything then so do I. I swallow them WHOLE!

Reply

Oh no A... you’re gonna choke!! But I totally get it... i think they’re nasty. So tell your wife... i tried it, and hate it! Lets leave em at the grocery store for those who love them but can’t find any.... well something like that anyway 🤣🤣.... i think you’ve earned the right to object now!! ( or here’s an idea)....find out what she hates ( secretly) and offer to make dinner one night! Turn around is fair play.... OR what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. ( that’ll fix her little red wagon!) Just having fun here A!!

Reply

That would backfire lastnerve because my wife really would try anything but all I have to do is try it. But everyone has one free food to pass. Mine is cauliflower. Thank God I don't have to try that.

Reply

cool that u can pass!! ( my sister absolutely hated, still hates cauliflower)...often she would sit at the table with me too!! 🤣🤣

Liver with ANYTHING is just WRONG! I’m with ya! For cryin’ out loud.... its an organ that filters out crud! why would anyone want to eat THAT?? ( my Mom used to justify serving it because “its high in iron”.)....well, I’d rather eat iron than liver! ( gosh, when someone wasn’t looking I would shove pieces of it im my pocket, under the tablecloth... on my little sister’s plate)....ANYWHERE but in my mouth. 🤣🤣👎🏻😵🥴

What a great idea.....made me laugh right out loud! I have always hated fish, ick. I know many people love it, but I don't know, my tastebuds just say otherwise.

You’re right...everybody has their own likes and dislikes! ... if u like comedy... Jim Gaffigan ( in his stand up show called “Cinco”) does this bit about fish.... it’s hysterical! You could see it on youtube... Jim Gaffigan Cinco-fish. Or his whole Cinco stand up is on Netflix! SO FUNNY!! Have a good night Yikes! 🐠🐟🤢

oh ps... Jim Gaffigan is NO FAN OF FISH either, that’s why i think you’ll enjoy it!
