ew, gross

Describe a food you abhor.

Many people would call me a picky eater on account of my vegetarianism. People who eat meat tend to be pretty perplexed ... "what do you eat?!" Well, I eat a lot of things. Most things, really. With the exception of meat and poultry, I'm not too hard to please.

That is, until we get mixed up with a couple certain things. Eggs and mayonnaise.

These are my kryptonite.

Firstly, let me explain that eggs in things doesn't matter — like in cookies or cake. But eggs in all their eggy glory, as in scrambled, poached, boiled, fried, quiched and French toasted, are an absolute no no. It's not because they come from an animal, they're just ... ick.

Then, there's mayo. It's not that it contains eggs. There's just something about it. The smell, the texture, the taste. Woof.

We all have something we absolutely can't stand to eat. What's yours?


Thanks to Mama Kat for the writer's prompt.


  1. It's a short list for me with green bananas at the top.

  2. Ha! ... I love the reference to kryptonite ... awesome!

    Visiting from Mama Kat's :)

  3. I wrote on the same prompt! :> Love the kryptonite reference and though you were talking about what's gross to you, I was smiling through the whole post! :>

  4. Love the kryptonite reference! The photo of mayo is brillant!

  5. I can't stand mayo either, only Miracle Whip!

  6. I've grown to like mayo on my sandwiches, but after that picture... I think I'm gonna pass next time!

  7. I like "real" mayo like Hellman's. HATE Miracle Whip.

    My kryptonite would be ham, lobster, peas, and hot dogs.

  8. Bananas. Blech.

    And honestly, don't like kiwi either.
