now i love all 3

other then that, my tastes have become more tolerable of foods.....example - when i was a kid, if i wanted peppers in my food (in a salad, pasta sauce, etc), i would have to dice them really small. now i can bite into any bell pepper like an apple. Same with olives.

eggs and cheese. Never had any kind of egg anything (unless eggs were used in baking etc where they're not recognizable as eggs).

Still hate cheese.

Sorry Julz, but we could never date.

How can you hate baba ganoush, greek salad (w/ olives), pico de gallo (with raw onions), and watermelon?! :(

think when you experience living on your own for the 1st time (aka no money --> starve), you gain a greater appreciation of all things edible.

for me, brussels sprouts & avocado

i'm an old(er) fucker, so now I'm finding myself turning away from anything too sweet or greasy. cookies & fried chicken are falling out of scope.

I didn't like meat. I loved all those funky ass veggies though -- brussels sprouts, cauliflower (mmmmm), cabbage, beets. I used to love dolmades when I was small, Goat.

I do hate baba ganoush! Greek salad I get without the olives cause I love feta cheese! I've had pico de gallo and if the onions are mixed with something else I can deal with it, raw onion slices just won't be on my burgers. And yes, I rly don't like watermelon--and bananas! I hate bananas more than watermelons...

But, I will try anything once. I've eaten ox tail, lamb tongue and brain and I love to suck the marrow out of beef/lamb bones! :)

I was obsessed with liking whatever the grown ups ate when I was little. Hence I tried and liked everything.

I was eating caviar, headcheese, escargot, various offal etc. at age 3-4. The only thing I remember not liking was olives, which I now love.

My sister ate nothing except carbs and "pink fish" (salmon).

She now eats nothing but carbs.

Go figure.

Tomatos already been mentioned.

As a kid I HATED guacamole. Now I would put it on anything, and/or eat it by itself.

I have a hispanic friend who's just like you. He once put guacamole on cookies and ice cream to prove that point.

yeah

used to HATE avocado/guac

fuckin awesome with everything now

rice crackers

salads

pasta

I was a crazy picky kid.

Steak-- As a child my mom insisted all steak served to me be cooked 'VERY WELL DONE' which to most people means slightly charred, with a grey center. NO NO NO, she sent that shit back if it wasn't BURNT, i mean BURNT. Of course, once I reached the age where I could eat Medium, Medium Rare loved steak.

Avocado- I to this day am very much a texture person. I have a pretty difficult time with avocado that is too ripe. And if I eat guacamole it has to be very cold. Won't eat it on Mexican food if it is mixed in.

Spinach- I eat a bowl of raw spinach with a little oil and vinegar all the time now, but as a kid I was forced to eat creamed spinach at my Grandma's house. That shit is nasty, refuse to even try cooked spinach.

Lasagna - Ricotta looks like an STD to me, I eat it now if I am served it. I enjoy it, but try not to think about the ricotta.

ChickPeas/Hummus[/b ] - Someone served me unshelled chickpeas once, almost died I choked so bad. I eat the hell out of some hummus and pita though.

Any Cheese that wasn't yellow

Macaroni that didn't come from a box

Oatmeal

Eggs

Waffles/Pancakes

Cake with Frosting

Raisins -- they looked like scabs. My mom packed them in my lunch till 3rd grade when she saw me throw them away. I'd been throwing them away since kindergarten.

Doritos

foods i liked then, but hate now

bologna

peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

fig newtons

ramen noodles

sour candy

I still am a kid, and have always hated tomatoes, all my life... It is like so fucking nasty, the taste, texture. I will have them if they are in burritos though, only exception.

Few more things is plain (meaning like nothing in it), I used to hate guacamole up until recently. I have a lot more but those are/were my biggest hates.
