The Picky Eater: 25 Foods You Definitely Hate

If you refuse to eat the majority of the foods on this list, then you're most likely a picky eater.

Foods picky eaters tend to avoid such as condiments

You're probably used to everyone giving you a hard time for being "too picky". But let's be honest, we like what we like and we stick to it! Every time I try and venture outside my comfort zone I end up regretting it and disliking my food choice. Whether it's the smell, texture, or tase...if something is off, I won't eat it. All pickers unite and stick to the safest option out there: chicken tenders and fries.

Here are 25 foods that you probably hate if you're a picky eater.

1. Mushrooms

Something about the rubbery texture PLUS the fact that it's a fungus? No thank you.

2. Pickles

A jar of pickles

I am not a fan of any vinegary foods, too sour.

3. Peppers

Yellow, red and orange peppers

Red, green, yellow; no matter the color, the flavor remains unpleasant to my taste buds.

4. Tomatoes

A bunch of tomatoes

I'll take a BLT please, minus the T. Squishy, watery tomatoes ruin every dish in my opinion.

5. Spinach

A bowl of spinach

Spinach tastes like a dirty leaf that someone plucked from the ground.

6. Seafood

Fish, crabs, shrimp and shells in a pile of seafood

The smell itself is enough to turn anyone away from eating it.

7. Coconut

Coconut broken open

The texture of coconut ruins any dessert, who wants a stringy piece of coconut stuck between their teeth?

8. Mustard

Mustard on a hot dog

Mustard just has a funky taste to it that nothing can mask.

9. Olives

A bowl of olives

Olives have a certain bitterness to them that I can't get past.

10. Avocados

Avocados

Despite the craze for avocados, I find them to be too bland.

11. Cottage cheese

A bowl of cottage cheese

Spoiled, rotten milk? Doesn't sound too appealing to me.

12. Brussels sprouts

Brussel sprouts

Again, unless these suckers are masked with tons of butter they are not tasty at all.

13. Celery

Celery sticks

A stringy, watery vegetable with relatively no flavor. Why even bother?

14. Cream cheese

Cream cheese on a bagel

Cream cheese is too rich and slightly sour for my liking.

15. Anything spicy

Spicy red peppers

How am I supposed to enjoy a dish if my mouth is burning the whole time?

16. Sushi

Sushi

Certain sushi rolls are either too bland, too fishy, or too raw for my liking.

17. Blueberries

Blueberries

The skin on these berries turn me away, as well as the sour taste.

18. Toast that's too "toasty"

My toast goes in the toaster for a short amount of time to avoid the smell and taste of it being burnt.

19. Peas

Peas

The little mush balls smell and look almost as bad as they taste.

20. Coleslaw

It's basically a soupy salad, the whole concept is a little weird to me.

21. Grits

Grits

So mushy and flavorless, I don't know how people can enjoy them.

22. Raisins

I think we all ignore them in trail mix. Why do they even bother?

23. Refried beans

Again, just way too mushy and flavorless. The appearance alone makes me want to throw it straight in the trash.

24. Anything sour

Lemons

My taste buds can't handle the bitterness and acidic flavors of anything sour.

25. Black licorice

Candy is supposed to be sweet, but black licorice just has a certain flavor that makes it unappealing.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
