I am jealous of all you watermelon eating, tomato loving, raw fooders. Honestly though, I can not stand tomatoes. I attempted to force feed myself tomatoes for the past two weeks, hoping that I will magically start to love them, but no luck. They honestly make me want to gag in disgust. What is funny though, is as a cooked vegan I loved spaghetti sauce and salsa. I would literally eat it with a spoon. I really want to love raw tomatoes, because they are so healthy for you, but I can not stand the taste. Is there anything I could add to tomatoes to make them taste less like tomatoes? Aha. I attempted to make two raw salsas with cilantro, green bell pepper, and other random vegetables but it tasted awful.
I also can not stand watermelon. It has a tomato-like taste to me and it makes my skin crawl. I am honestly not exaggerating here, I really hate the taste of raw tomatoes.
I love apples, bananas, cherries, grapes, kiwis, mangoes, nectarines, oranges, peaches, pears, pineapples, plums, raisins, strawberries, tangerines, any sort of lettuce, avocado, celery, pomegranates, and cucumbers.
Mangoes are like the goddess of fruit to me. I love them, and if I could eat them all day, I swear I would be the happiest person alive. I also love avocado, but I almost wish I did not because of all the fat. At one point of my veganism I was eating two avocados a day with a spoon. Bananas are pretty amazing too. =] Cucumbers are on of my favorites, also. Oh! Pomegranates have a tie with mangoes. I can not wait till winter so I can eat them again. I just came upon them this winter and they are amazing beyond words. I eat the seeds too, instead of just sucking the juice.. Is that bad?
I have never had apricots, durian, dates, figs, persimmons, raspberries, raw zucchini, raw cabbage, or raw squash.
Blueberries, spinach, and blackberries are tolerable in smoothies.
I can not stand tomatoes, grapefruits, watermelon(or any type of melon), bell peppers, raw broccoli, cauliflower, or cantaloupe. I had papaya once and it smelt and tasted like baby diaper! Was it not ripe?
What fruits and veggies do you love and which do you hate? What have you not tried?
Sorry if this is a pointless rant of sorts. I am just curious! :)
