Foods I Love Vs Foods I Hate
A few days back I did a post about foods I love and hate but concentrated more on specific brands. Today I decided to share some specific foods that I love and hate. This post is a little shorter than usual but I just was not feeling it today and didn’t want to force myself to write.
Foods I Love
I am one of those people who love most foods so it was so hard for me to pick just five but I thought about it and narrowed it down to these five.
I love peas so much. They are probably my favourite thing to put in pretty much any dish ever. I know a lot of people don’t like the texture because they get really mushy when you cook them but honestly I kind of like that. I love the way it tastes good no matter what you add it to and I also really like that it’s a good substitute in dishes which generally have avocados because as you probably know I’m allergic to avocados.
I LOVE tomatoes!! I think they’re just the perfect addition to any dish and even if you just eat them raw they taste amazing. I think tomatoes are one of those veggies that you don’t think of a lot but also use a lot. At least that’s how it is for me. Like if someone asked me what vegetable I love I would not instantly think tomatoes but if someone took away my tomatoes there are so many dishes I wouldn’t be able to make.
This is my favourite Indian food and it’s been my favourite ever since I was a child! My mum didn’t make fried food a lot so she didn’t make samosas very often but when she did I was the happiest kid ever. I used to help her with the stuffing sometimes and it was just so fun. Also in Kenya we sometimes eat samosas with mandazi which is the best combo ever. To this day eating samosas brings back really great childhood memories.
I know a lot of people hate broccoli and I’m not really sure why but I absolutely love it. I usually don’t even season mine a lot- I just add some salt and oil and grill it. It just tastes so amazing! I also love adding it to rice based dishes because it tastes so amazing with rice for some reason. I think broccoli is one of those things I eat almost daily and still don’t get sick of.
Mexican food is probably one of my favourite types of food and as much as I love other Mexican dishes tacos are probably my favourite. I like the hard shell tacos the best because I really love anything crunchy but I don’t mind the soft ones either.
Foods I Hate
This was so hard to write because I don’t know if I really hate any foods in particular. I dislike some foods but I don’t know if I would go as far as saying I hate them. However, I ended up picking five foods that I really dislike.
Okay, these maybe I do hate. I just have a problem with the taste and texture. I will avoid eating carrots as much as I can although these days I do eat them occasionally because apparently they’re good for you… But yes if I had to pick something to never eat again it would be carrots. It’s so funny because one of my friends loves carrots and hates peas and we’re always making jokes about it because we’re literally similar in every way except when it comes to peas and carrots.
I don’t have a big problem with the taste but I just don’t like the texture of apples. I don’t know how to describe it but honestly apples kind of make me feel like I’m eating socks. There is literally no other way for me to describe it and please don’t ask me why I know what socks taste like…
I’m generally not a big fan of beans or lentils but usually when they are well seasoned I don’t mind having some in my dishes as long as I can’t really taste them because you know protein is important especially when you’re plant based and don’t get any animal protein. Mung beans, however, I just can not eat no matter how well cooked/seasoned they are. They just taste really gross to me and I just literally feel sick just looking at them.
Really Sweet Foods
I like sweet stuff occasionally but I don’t eat a lot of sweet food on a regular basis. Really sweet foods make me feel kind of sick after a while and you get that gross too sweet feeling in your mouth which I hate. I also don’t like food in general that’s very sweet. I prefer savoury or spicy dishes in general- I always have. I was talking to my mum a few days back and we were talking about how my dad’s side of the family loves sweet foods but my mum and I really don’t so we always love the same foods and our cooking tastes very similar.
I don’t eat dairy cheese anymore but when I did I was not a big fan of cheddar. I just feel like it tastes super sharp (I don’t know if that’s the best way to describe it but that’s the best I can come up with right now) and I just don’t like that cheddar flavour. I don’t mind vegan cheddar cheese though. It doesn’t taste very similar to the dairy one- or maybe I just haven’t tried one that tastes very similar.
What foods do you love? What foods do you hate? Is there any food you avoid at all costs? Is there one food you can’t live without?
