    and sea urchin. if i could afford it, i'd eat those 2 foods every damn day.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

      if it's rubbery it's likely crap quality and not cooked right. it should be very tender.

        Lychees - they also have an alien sweet taste which I find very disturbing.

          Just thought I'd gross all you squeamish types out. Hehehe.
          Personally I don't mind the texture of the oyster, it's the taste that gets me...for hours later I am burping sea water...ugh...

          And about bananas...it is the ripe ones that make me sick - too soft and blech, too sweet and mushy, they are perfect if they still have a tiny bit of green at the top and bottom, but not too much. And sweet potatoes - I am trying to get used to them, but they are really a bit too sweet, and slimy. I have to eat them drenched in butter and salt to get them down. I would rather eat a regular potato.

            I cant eat green peppers or tomatoes cooked. I can do onions if they are crunch fried, broccoli only if its cooked. I will gag on any slimy cooked veggie.

              Raw oysters are sublime. That mucous like texture as they slide down your throat and the briny flavour. Almost as good as fermented sea cucumber which is pretty much just a briny slime. For everyday pleasure its rare cooked liver or brains

                  I don't know if WWatchers still has physical meetings, but back in the old days, my mom told me that the leaders (or whatever they're called) would bring in a five pound bag of raw chicken fat to show what an accomplishment losing five pounds truly was.

                  Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                    This is like a "wuss anonymous" thread.
                    Textures that have grossed me out:
                    Raw squid
                    Fried Cicada
                    Silk worms
                    Chicken feet
                    That is all. Can you tell I lived in Asia?
                    Food that doesn't gross me out:
                    Jellyfish
                    Sea Cucumbers
                    gristle in general
                    intestines

                    If mushrooms, tomatoes, or a little piece of chicken fat weirded me out I'd take a class on real life and how to live it.
                    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                      ditto! i freaking HATE goopy baby food consistency food. It makes me feel a little sick.

                      however, i luv raw oysters and i am glad that so many other people don't (esp my husband) b/c that means more for me!!!

                        Yes! The best. Those balout eggs with half formed chick. There was one season where they played food roulette and had to eat whatever they spun. Of course the vegetarian spun the lambs' brain. Oh, the drama!

                          I remember that one, she was one of the notorious horrible people, so it was karma! Those eggs are gross, that and soft insects in the challnge make me heave.

                                You and I could have fun in a kitchen together. Or anywhere else for that matter.
