Can we have a picky eater thread?

>A week ago at Christmas
>Everybody at the house for dinner
>Lots of stuff there, and I made a lasagna
>Several picky eaters coming
>Aunt doesn't eat anything she "doesn't like," particularly those things she's never fucking tried before
>Little brother doesn't eat anything aside from Mcdonalds and the odd reheated shitty soup or microwave chicken
>Get told that he loves lasagna, and figured it would be a safe dish for everyone
>Bring the food out and he doesn't touch anything, just stares at it on his plate
>He takes a piece of lasagna and pokes at it for a while
>"Did you put pepper in this?!"
>"Yeah"
>He stares at it for a while more and then gets this fucking scowl on his face, gets up with his plate, and he throws it right in the garbage
>Takes all my willpower not to get up and strangle him
>Mom later tells me "Oh, he doesn't like black pepper."

Not the first time it happened either.

>Exposure, plain and simple. Scientists tell us that aversions fade away when we eat moderate doses of the hated foods at moderate intervals, especially if the food is complex and new to us. (Don't try this with allergies, but don't cheat either: few of us have genuine food allergies.) Exposure works by overcoming our innate neophobia, the omnivore's fear of new foods that balances the biological urge to explore for them. Did you know that babies who are breast-fed will later have less trouble with novel foods than those who are given formula? The variety of flavors that make their way into breast milk from the mother's diet prepares the infant for the culinary surprises that lie ahead. Most parents give up trying novel foods on their weanlings after two or three attempts and then complain to the pediatrician; this may be the most common cause of fussy eaters and finicky adults--of omnivores manqués. Most babies will accept nearly anything after eight or ten tries.

Was at my girlfriend's house on Christmas Eve. Her sister was making meat pie and roasted broccoli + cauliflower. I noticed their nephew eating Mcnuggets before dinner was ready. He wasn't a lard ass or anything, so I figured he was one of those picky eaters I'd heard about. He just sat infront of an empty plate during dinner. Didn't make a fuss or anything. Shit like that or people who can't drink plain water confuse me though. I can't help but feel like they should just get over it, and I know that's really insensitive to say, but how the fuck could someone who only eats mcnuggets and other boring inoffensive foods, be alive even a few decades ago?

I have a family member who is convinced she's allergic to black pepper because it "burns her mouth." So basically she can't eat out at any decent restaurant or anybody else's house, because everyone fucking uses black pepper. But I've seen her unknowingly eat food with black pepper in it, and she doesn't get any kind of allergic reaction. She's just a hypochondriac pain in the ass.

And it really takes a lot to stand out in my family as a fussy eater, given that about half of my relatives have their little lists of Foods They Don't Eat. For some it's onions, others seafood, others nuts, mushrooms or eggplant. But thinking you're allergic to black pepper because it burns your mouth takes the cake.

Vegetarianism is a restrictive diet. Just because you try "strange shit" in order to avoid malnourishment doesn't make you weird or adventurous.

The fact that your mind could somehow read that into the post you responded to only hurts whatever argument you might be trying to make.

Nobody got angry, you just got defensive. All that was said was that vegetarians and people who only eat meat and potatoes are both equally picky eaters.

People can be allergic to meat. Tick bites are actually proven to lead to red meat allergies for some people. Meat allergies like most food allergies aren't very common but still exist. The panel for food allergies at my allergist's office has chicken, beef, and dozens of other things on there that you wouldn't think people "could" be allergic to.
>>
>>7232999
The discussion was on breastfeeding, if I'm not mistaken. Whoever that vegetarian was implied that their unusually varied tastes, despite being bottle fed, contradicted the correlation people were claiming (that breast feeders have wider taste and are less likely to be picky).

It was important for that guy to point out that not eating meat is a pretty restrictive dietary choice, meaning that person's diet was not as adventurous as they thought, hence the correlation still stands.

The point of the first person was that the correlation isn't there, the point of the second is that the correlation might well be there since a vegetarian diet is pretty restrictive, no matter how adventurous you feel you are. Nobody was attacked until that idiot started getting offended and lashed out.

you're assuming that the vegetarian didn't take that into account, seemed pretty clear that they were saying they ate strange shit and to either blame that on vegetarianism or say that not eating mean cancels that out doesn't really make sense. you can be plenty adventurous and not eat meat.

>you can be plenty adventurous and not eat meat.
Not adventurous enough to deny the correlation. If you had an unrestricted and adventurous diet consisting of all types of food, and you were bottle fed, that would be some interesting anecdotal evidence (though obviously not enough by itself to mean anything). Being somewhat adventurous except from almost half of all common food is pretty meaningless even as an anecdote in this context.
>>
>>7232965
When was the last time you drank piss? Ate brains? Testicles? I'm not a vegetarian, but saying avoiding any type of food = steak and potatoes level of picky is retarded.
>>
>>7233108
even if meat was half of all common food which it's really not then not eating that and eating a range of strange shit instead doesn't mean you're less adventurous.

an infinite range of food minus meat is an infinite range of food.

and we're not even talking about the fact that you can be a vegetarian for non-picky reasons.

And you can be just as adventurous, but also eat meat.

Vegetarians have this crazy idea that because they don't eat meat they somehow open themselves up to a wider variety of foods, when in fact everyone eats the same shit they do, but aren't picky about eating animal flesh.

I've eaten brains and testicles, and even drank piss (though like the other anon said, that's not /ck/ relevant). I don't eat them every day, because they're not common foods where I live.

They are nowhere near common enough to make any sort of analogy with eating any and all meat in general.

Some vegetarians have rationalizations for their food phobia, but most don't. Either way, I'd say exactly the same thing about someone who says they don't eat onions or tomatoes, and that's being generous to vegetarians.
>>
>>7233060
>It was important for that guy to point out that not eating meat is a pretty restrictive dietary choice, meaning that person's diet was not as adventurous as they thought, hence the correlation still stands.
I think a distinction needs to be made between people who don't eat/try things because they dislike new things, or think they'll dislike whatever it is, and people who don't eat things because of personal ethical choices. Many American meat eaters won't eat dogs or cats, or maybe just dogs they know were recently pets, or dogs they see tortured to death to enhance the flavor, or won't eat endangered species they know were illegally poached, or won't eat veal when they know the calf was bound in a cage unable to walk its entire life. These sorts of moral choices are very distinct from "eww it looks gross", or someone who eats a bull's ass, legs, and abdomen, but won't eat a its eyes, brains, tongue, intestines, or testicles.
>>
>>7233184
>Some vegetarians have rationalizations for their food phobia, but most don't.
That's absurd, you're just making shit up, because you can't think of any rational reason to justify your own someone-doesn't-think-like-I-think "phobia".
>>
>>7233173

>now we get down to it

One person eats everything, another person eats everything minus all meat.

One of them has a more restricted diet, but calls themselves an adventurous eater.

There's no preconceived ideas at play; that was literally how this discussion got started.

My friend married a milk-toast engineer autist from Indiana who doesn't drink, and seems to hate the notion of food, fine dining, and anything more than a generic taste of "bland". Mother fucker ignored all the food I made, and which everyone else was ravenously consuming, and proceeded to sit and eat a bowl of M&M's he found leftover from Christmas.

If you're not going to eat almost any of the food I made, why the fuck are you even here? It's like the one fucking reason you bother going to your boyfriend or girlfriend's gatherings; The people are weird, but the food is great. You drink other people's wine and beer, you eat the food they prepared, you avoid saying anything stupid, make people laugh, and have a good time.

Again, a picky eater is someone who obstinately refuses to eat a particular kind of food (and in extreme cases will act like they're going to vomit or otherwise throw a tantrum if you ask them to try a bite).

I'm not a big fan of zucchini. I've had some amazing zucchini, but it usually falls flat for me. I'll still always eat it, especially if someone else is serving it to me. That's called having preferences, but not being a picky eater.

Someone who outright refuses to have zucchini on their plate, let alone touching their other food, is a picky eater.

Vegetarians fall into the latter category.

Again, you're not considering the reason behind the refusal. Say someone is deathly allergic to peanuts. By your reasoning, they are a picky eater, because they outright refuse to eat peanuts. Picky eaters refuse to eat because they don't like or think they won't like something. Vegetarians may be picky or not, but for most their reasons are independent of whether they like meat or not.
>>
>>7233233
You don't know if they refuse meat dishes, a lot of vegetarians don't, I don't refuse them, I don't give a shit if meat's touched my food either.

I can't really relate, but I hate shit that tastes very heavily of oregano. I don't mind it if it's subtle, but as a kid my grandma thought good cooking was saturating food in a fuckload of oregano and everything else in the spicerack. She was actually a picky eater too. She never tasted what she made, and if you asked her she'd say "I don't eat that."

>Just because you have become a perfect omnivore does not mean that you must flaunt it. Intoxicated with my own accomplishment, I began to misbehave, especially at dinner parties. When seated next to an especially finicky eater, I would often amuse myself by going straight for the jugular. Sometimes I began slyly by staring slightly too long at the food remaining on her plate and then inquiring whether she would like to borrow my fork. Sometimes I launched a direct assault by asking how long she had had her terror of bread. Sometimes I tricked her by striking up an abstract conversation about allergies. And then I would sit back and complacently listen to her neurotic jumble of excuses and explanations: advice from a personal trainer, intolerance to wheat gluten, a pathetic faith in Dean Ornish, the exquisite--even painful--sensitivity of her taste buds, hints of childhood abuse. And then I would tell her the truth.

>Not being the cause of the slaughter of an animal.

So if you eat meat without killing it, you're technically a vegetarian? I guess I better tell 90% of the world's population that they're actually vegetarian.
>>
>>7233278
>Shouldn't a vegetarian by definition refuse meat dishes?
People (vegetarians or not) draw different distinctions over what they'll eat and under what circumstances. I consider myself a vegetarian, but if meat was my only option to meet my caloric or nutritional needs, I'd eat it. This sort of question sometimes arises with prisoners, and the same reasoning for exceptions is used for many religious food rules (e.g. people who are weak & ill don't have to fast for Ramadan).
>>
>>7233340
>The cause of the slaughter of an animal, not the animal you eat. When you buy meat more meat replaces it, you add a demand to the industry and an animal is slaughtered in your name.

Let me get this straight. If I have you over for dinner, and I made chicken or beef or some other animal, it's okay for you to eat it as long as you didn't pay for it? Isn't that really fucking hypocritical?
>>
>>7233321

So you're just someone who tries to avoid eating meat as much as possible.

You were getting defensive and calling everyone ignorant because you represent 1% of vegetarians, and most people in your situation (which I understand as an ethical one, and probably also has something to do with having issues with the state of industrial agriculture, which most omnivores also have issues with...) wouldn't even self-identify as vegetarian.

>>
>>7233393

So it's okay to let them die for no reason, unless someone else pays for it, in which case they're a horrible immoral killing monster and you're the moral white knight saving the animal carcass from a destiny of oblivion. Do you really wonder why no one takes vegetarians seriously?

Above all else I try not to create a demand for animals to be slaughtered, that's it, that's the one thing. If I didn't want to fund coca cola but I was given a bottle (and I didn't have the choice to give it away) then I'd drink it, throwing it away makes nothing better.

>>
>>7233417

>it's fucking logical

It's reasonable, sure.

Just stop saying you're representative of the majority of vegetarians, because you aren't.

I've been eating less and less meat, simply because I don't always feel the need to have it, and there's plenty of other things I like eating. I wouldn't call myself a vegetarian though, even if I had strong enough feelings about killing animals and factory farming to push me further in that direction or to just use as a justification if it ever came up in conversation. I eat what I want, and someone who needs to have a slab of meat on their plate is just as ridiculous as someone who refuses to.

Shit I found what I am
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhist_vegetarianism
>the Buddha allowed his monks to eat pork, chicken and fish if the monk was aware that the animal was not killed on their behalf.
You have to be careful people don't start buying meat for you though, it's got to be an unpreventable eat it or bin it situation

>>7233430
It's about how far you're willing to go. You balance the guilt you're willing to feel with how convenient or tasty the animal is. Fish are pretty stupid, insects might not even feel pain or really be aware what's happening. If you wanted to be perfect you'd have to immediately kill yourself.

You could argue it's more ethical than not eating meat. You are supporting their survival as a species and their health as individuals, something of which they would have guarantee in the wild, and which improves the quality of the end product.

For foods I don't like, I took a gradual process of introduction.

Eg mushrooms.

Started eating oriental ramen (basically mushroom flavoured), eg the base flavour. incorporating it more and more into food.

Then moved on to finely chopped/minced mushrooms incorporated more and more predominantly as I got used to it

work my way up until now I can nearly eat all whole mushrooms. Still working on raw and still working on preparing them myself, I have to buy cut ones because they still skeeve me.

I hope this helps.

Then don't eat it at all you tit. Eating meat as you explained you do is a violation of the basic meaning of vegetarian especially one who feels the need to present a moral high ground. You're an activist and a piss poor one at that.

>I eat meat processed in the same places I deride because I also won't waste.

You have likely never starved to a point of needing to eat the thing you lambaste, but do it anyway because, why not? Hypocrite

this is what I don't get when I go to buffets with people. Most don't try anything and don't decide to go out of their norms at all.

What really grinds my gears though is the people who stack one food on their plate and do that for one round. That's not the point of the buffet, go to mcdonalds for fuck sake and stack the fries on.

mince as finely as possible or put them in a food processor/blender. if you're sauteing them, they probably need more time than you think. start them on medium high heat and lower once you notice them starting to brown, because they have a lot of water trapped inside.

i love onions, i eat them with pretty much every meal but if they aren't prepared properly they can be terrible. if they're sliced too big in a salad it ruins the salad, but thin sliced onion is amazing in salad and sandwiches.

if you don't have a good knife and cutting board, and you just chop up onions with a steak knife on a dinner plate you won't be able to mince them finely.

yes, it works that way. let's say, i don't like olives. i try one, a year later i try another, few weeks later i eat another one or even few maybe. then i realise they are not so bad with cheese and wine or as a pizza topping or something. and then i can say, i like olives.

kids usually like sweet or even bland things, maybe a feew salty or greasy like potato chips or fries, but when you get older and you're not a freakin' faggot, you try new food, new tastes, new things, and if you're not a stupid american kid like op's brother or his >>7232875 sister, you would prefer healthy tasty food, no just a steak, fries, burgers, pizza or china.

and if you don't like sth, like pepper or onion, you just pick those things up and leave them on a plate, don't throw everyfuckinthing away to the garbage, it's a waste of time, money and environment, do i have to explain that to you, really?
>>
I'll try anything once. Literally anything. I'll try pufferfish I don't even give a fuck.

Give me raw octopus, or the dreaded durian.

What I want to try the most however, are spicy insects, Thai market stall style. Something that is savoury, crispy and scorching hot. Like crickets.

God, fuck yes. All this picky eater bullshit is just autism, I really can not wrap my head around it. Why not experience everything life has to offer you? Not liking something is fine, but if you don't try it at least once (preferably a couple of times) then you're an irredeemable autist and I have little respect for you.

bechamel suace isn't made of cheese, it's made of butter, flour, milk, salt, black pepper and nutmeg.

you lay a bit of bechamel sauce or olive oil first, then lasagne pasta shits, ragu sauce, bechamel sauce, some cheese - preferably mozzarella or parmigiano regiano or grana padano or even freakin' ricotta, but NOT the cottage cheese. next you go the same - pasta, ragu, bechamel, cheese. the top layer is pasta, bechamel and cheese. it's not difficult, you just don't put anything american in it.

ITT: Human garbage dumpsters brag about the garbage they eat
>>
>>7232722
I had a bad home lif growing up, add shit food all the time because of a bad mother. When I went over my dads he would try to feed me good food as much as possible. He's a great cook and my step mom is good too. I didn't like a lot of fruits, fish, nuts, and veg because almost zero exposure to it.

They let me sit at the dinner table with broc on my plate and basically limited desserts and other way to at least get me to try things.

When I passed 11 i lived with them full time and things were way better. I still just cant eat some stuff but at the very least I can count those individual things on my hand.

My cousin is 16 and only eats garbage, he reminds me of me when I was 9 and it makes me furious. The mother is an enabler and the father yells at him and her and just ends up pushing him to eat more.
>>
Former picky eater here, don't give up on us. Some of us will turn around. How I got over it was that I would eat a piece of meat/whatever food I liked and then eat a small piece of whatever veggie was with it so I wouldn't "feel" it in my mouth. Over time I decreased the amount of meat/whatever food I liked and increased the veggie until I would eat it by itself.

BTW roasted veggies in olive oil are GOAT.
>>

I get this, soft food with no flavour like rice and boiled/mashed potatoes aren't good.

I also hate onions in food, and I used to be phobic towards it earlier in my life. It was only because of the texture, not the taste though ..so here is what I did/ do:
I used a grater/shredder to shred the onions in to a fine squishy mash, and then put it in a small cloth above the pot with the food in it, and press the juices down

or

I would cut the onions into small bits, put them in a garlic press and press the juices directly into the cooking pot. (slower process than the above)

or

Make 2 cross cuts on an onion, but don't cut through ...so the onion can basically hold its shape. Put the large onion into the pot you intend to cook in, and let it stay till the food is done, then you can take the onion out of the pot with a spoon.

or

If you plan to fry something, make 2 cuts on one large onion, so it slices into 4 pieces ...peel off the large layers and remove the thin skin on them. Place the onions on the frying pan and cook whatever you want on them, and when the food is done, remove the onions pieces.
----------------------

I am aware that there are more advanced kitchen tools for pressing out onion juice, but I like to keep mine simple...

I'll be honest and say I'm kind of a faggot because I can't stand raisins but I like all the other dried fruit I've tasted. Also, I can't stand regular sweet fruits. Tart fruits, like strawberries and granny smith apples, however, I love.
My older brother is another case. He orders the same pizza nearly every day and only likes two vegetables: potatoes and corn.

Your brother is a faggot. You have decent taste. I'm sure you could find a way to like sweeter fruits, if they were cooked in the right way. I dislike dried fruits myself, I've never enjoyed them in a dish but I imagine I could.
>>
>>7243838
This needs to be reiterated and stated more strongly, because a lot of people don't seem to be getting it.

There is nothing wrong with not liking the taste/texture of something, and avoiding it (Ex. I don't like apples, so I tend to avoid them; but if I'm a guest and someone offers one to me, I'll eat it).

The autism kicks in when you're fucking ridiculous about it.
