Foods I Can’t Eat

brains on a plateBasic foods I would never ask for:

  • Fruit: cucumber. Yes, it’s a fruit, and I can’t stand their smell, texture, and taste. I like dill pickles, though. I’m not keen on watermelon, either. Maybe it’s their texture.
  • Vegetable: pumpkin. Is that a fruit, too?
  • Meat: liver. Maybe brain and kidneys, too, but I haven’t tried those.

Foods I Love To Eat:

  • Fruit: blueberries and cherries.
  • Vegetable: potaoes. So versatile! And onions. Lots of others.
  • Meat: ham.

What To Buy Organic

When buying organic pays (and doesn’t) has three sections:

  1. Buy these items organic as often as possible. They list apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, red raspberries, spinach, and strawberries; meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy; baby food.
  2. Buy these items organic if price is no object. They list Asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, kiwi, mangos, onions, papaya, pineapples, and sweet peas; Breads, oils, potato chips, pasta, cereals, and other packaged foods, such as canned or dried fruit and vegetables.
  3. Don’t bother buying these items organic. They list seafood and cosmetics.

I buy organic items meant for my children, and if it’s on sale, I’ll buy most anything organic. The stuff is still expensive, though; I can’t afford to buy organic consistently.
