Don't really think this belongs in the AB Forum, as this is just general information.
Despite knowing well what we prefer to eat now when the clock reaches dinnertime could be different as to what we ate growing up.
Was your palette limited? Were you a picky eater? Or were you open to trying new things? Reach back and share some of your experiences with food growing up, furthermore, did you have any specific favorites to eat? Do you still eat the same dishes today or have you moved on into a much broader spectrum of nourishment? What are your tastes like?
For instance, my favorite breakfast was pancakes with peanut butter and syrup. Typically, I ate anything that was fried chicken, my favorite lunch and dinner being chicken fingers with fries. However, my parents and I would go to Outback Steakhouse on Thursdays and order a Bloomin’ Onion as an appetizer and happens to be one of the things I still eat today given the chance. Some of the de facto drinks that I consumed in my childhood were Soda, Milk and Apple Juice. I drank Orange Juice for awhile, but found that the acidic properties would make me throw up.
I was a very picky eater, although my parents cooked food that was still healthy yet I could manage to eat without gagging. My dad was very persistent in me eating vegetables, and on the occasion that we did eat a meal with veggies, he would often get very angry when I neglected to eat them, even going as far as screaming at me once to eat my greens, which was a very upsetting experience.
My tastes could be described as sensitive. I like plain and sweet foods but nothing too hot or sour. And despite broadening my tastes to different food, I still eat the core dishes I turned to as a kid.
