Foodie Favorites That Aren’t For Me.

As a self-proclaimed “foodie”, I definitely fall into most of the typical stereotypes- love trying new things, love finding new products, love pushing my favorite products & food combinations on friends and family, and love rabbit food/ health food/ health food that tastes good.DSC_0013 DSC_0073 DSC_0177

Besides the personality stereotypes, there are also foodie FOOD stereotypes we are all known to love.  Kale, oatmeal, almond milk…to name a few.  [And yes, I love all three!]

But then there are foods that many foodies looooove, and I want to looooove them.  But I don’t.  Maybe sometimes I eat it because it’s healthy, or because I feel like I should, but they definitely are NOT my go-to foods.

1. Greek yogurt.  I know, I know.  You see Greek yogurt on here from time to time.DSC_0464 I don’t hate it, but it’s definitely one of the “feel like I should eat this” foods.  Especially plain Greek yogurt- too tangy!  I’ll reluctantly eat it with fruit and cereal.  Sweetened Greek yogurt is more tolerable with cereal/ peanut butter or fruit [or in a smoothie!].  If I’m going to eat it, it’s gotta be 2% (or more) and Chobani.  I much rather have regular yogurt.

2. Hummus.


I like the idea of hummus, and sometimes I like the taste.  But when I buy it, or it’s in the fridge, it just sits there.  I never grabs veggies or pita and dip it in hummus.  Not my thing.  (However, homemade, fresh hummus is a whole other story!  That stuff is awesome).

3.  Seitan


And all fake-meat products, for that matter.  Blech.  Fake meat gives me the heebie-jeebies.

4. Nutritional yeast.


It tastes like cheese powder, which is what it’s supposed to taste like and it sounds like it could be good, but just like seitan…it freaks me out a little.  Maybe I’m not using it right?

5. Coconut Water


This one breaks my heart the most.  Coconut water.  It just sounds so delicious and refreshing.  I want to be able to drink cold coconut water during the summer or gulp it down after a tough workout.  But I just don’t like it.  I have tried it multiple times and it always tastes cheesy to me.  Cheesy is not refreshing!
