evil foods by arty_farty on 29 June 2007 5:01pm
what foods do you associate with evil and why?

its always been prunes with me mainly because of a book i read when i was a child where a troll kidnapped a gnome and stole a magic bag that filled with what ever you wanted it too and he chose prunes for some reason.

Hmm good question

Avocadoes coz I'm allergic to them.
Orange peel coz I utterly hate it when they hide it in fruit loaf and you eat it by accident.
Watermelon coz I went into labour while eating it.

arty, ever considered growing up?

Or better still getting a life beyond palinstravels.co.uk

oh so nothing that you experianced as a child stuck with you and forms the basis of your judgement on certain things then?

[s] im sorry that i can remember certain things like that [/s]

Alas, food for me has only ever been 'good' in books, etc. Probably the basis of struggling with weight all adult life!

Since childhood I have never liked cooked cabbage, spring greens and spinach because I hate the smell, taste and texture. Makes me feel nauseous. They remind me of seaweed - I don't like the smell and sliminess.

Prunes I loath, celery is something I also dislike. The smell drives me insane.
Not evil, just not my taste.

Natto. Fresh vegetables are lovely, meats give you the power of acres of grassy fields of grazing, but fermented vegetable matter is not high on my list of possible menu items.

Just one question - why is it that foods that, if not actually bad for you aren't exactly good give you a lovely satisfied feeling in the tummy, whilst so called healthy foods do not?

I am not counting things like pasta or brown rice now. Yes, it is you Mr Lettuce Leaf and you Ms Crispbread that I am referring to!!!

Give me the slow, velvety taste and lingering satisfaction of a slowly melting-in-the-mouth chunk of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate. Why can't it be low in fat and zero calories?

Life is so unfair!!!

Yes, but it's high in anti-oxidents and lots of other stuff that really is good for you. (But the dark chocolate is even better for you!)

My evil food is margarine. I once read a description of how it is made on a chemical level which was absolutely horrifying. Haven't been able to swallow the stuff since. Butter and Olive Oil forever!
