Some comments in other threads made me think about this question. What beneficial foods for your type do you not like the taste of?


Turnips: I don't care for the taste of cooked turnips by themselves. If they are cooked with other things they sometimes are OK because for some reason the taste gets much milder.

Black Walnuts: Once again I don't enjoy them by themselves, but sometimes they are OK, or even good, when cooked/baked in something.

Carob: I really haven't found a great way to enjoy carob, but I haven't really experimented with it very much.

Turmeric/Curry: They are one of the few things I haven't really tried cooking with. I occasionally take turmeric as a supplement.


I find that I really like most of the my type O secretor beneficial foods. I enjoy my BTD foods.

Good question MoDon. Has a nonnie there isn't too much on my bene list. But the foods I can do without are Kohlrabi, Okra and Turnips all in the veggie category. Although Kefir is not on my bene but neutral, I did try it before I found out I was a nonnie and I couldn't drink it. To me it tasted like sour milk and as I had never had it before I wasn't sure if that is what it was suppose to be like. So in the trash it went and I have never touched the stuff again.

About the only thing I don't care for in the beneficials is Turmeric. †Not on its own anyhow (on foods, of course). † I do love curry though.

Several things- but mainly fish things:
croaker, pickerel, sardine, mackerel,  sturgeon  
In the meatdepartment I wont say that I dislike, mutton, goat, lamb, rabbit or venison - but they are no my favorites !
Weird as I am I kind of like all veggies- but papaya is just too weird- smells like vomit.

I've noticed that I've developed a taste for a lot of the beneficials (like walnuts, pumpkin seeds, beneficial oils, and turnips) after eliminating a lot of the avoids. It's like I'm re-educating my taste buds!

Off the top of my head I cannot think of A nonnie beneficial foods that I dislike. I am more enthusiatic about some than others. Some I do not eat because I find that they create problems fo me.

On the subject of Kefir. Even eating a tablespoon or so of it mixed in other products gives me a headache. I can get away with eating yogurt.

I don't care for Soy products (tofu or roasted soybeans) and can't stand the taste of coffee...  I tried to drink some when I worked in restaurants during college, but couldn't get it down.

ABJoe good thing you don't like coffee...IT'S A BIG AVOID for us AB's!!!! ( changed in LRFYT) Trust me I'm trying to get off of it.

Personally I cannot stand the smell or taste of Lamb...smells mediciney to me, just gross. The thought of eating rabbit or goat revolts me but I think it's culture too. My Mom ate a lot of rabbit in Germany and my husband grew up on mutton. I'll stick to my Turkey thanks !

Liver...that's about it.  Though every now and then I like it, I just wish somebody else would cook it for me, handling it raw really turns me off from eating it.  Is elk beneficial?  That would be another one I can't stand.

I think I like all other beneficials, especially the convenient ones.

There are a few things I have not tried and one or two I'm not wild about (aduki beans would be one). Everything else is 'good to go'. On the other hand, there are several avoids that I have no problem avoiding!

I really love the B beneficials, and enjoy eating them.

However....if there is any beneficial I don't like, it would have to be in the fish family.  I haven't even tried most of the beneficial fish on my list because it has taken me a long time just to come to enjoy the fish I do eat.  Now I adore wild salmon, and it's only a neutral!  I like canned sardines and I am leaning to cook cod in a way that I really like it.

I'm with Victoria and Henriette, I can't even try many of the beneficial fishes. The thought makes me want to gag.  I love salmon, cod, and whitefish.

I know okra is a beneficial, and I even have some canned okra in the pantry, just haven't mustered up the nerve to try them yet. I ask about fresh okra when I am in the stores, but haven't found any (I'm sure fresh is way better than canned).

When I was growing up in the South, we ate fresh okra dipped in egg, shaken in a bag with seasoned flour and fried in oil.  Maybe you could adapt that to compiant products and try okra like that.  Even for a person who didn't eat grains, they could roll them in almond meal.  It really helps with the texture and the crunchy crust balances the questionable interior.

Thanks! †I guess I had never checked the Typebase for it since I can't stand it.

I haven't tried all of the compliant fish either, but every (beneficial) fish I've ever tried, I have liked.

Melissa's "handling liver" comment is justified. †I have learned that I need to "just do it" because I need a good liver & onions meal about every week or two and I need to cook it or find a restaurant that does, but I usually get into some avoids there. †Much better to do what I KNOW is good.

Modon;  in reference to tumeric.   I wanted to say I was making a salad dressing the other day with walnut oil, garlic, almonds and lemon juice and decided to add some tumeric to it.  I also added salt and hot pepper. I am not sure what it did to the taste of the dressing but it made it a pretty yellow color.  That would be one way to get some tumeric to your diet.  I have also added it to my beef and onions as I was cooking it.  That did taste good!  


Beouemom sounds like bay way mom and I think Colorado is a great place to live.

No wonder I don't eat yogurt. It's slimy! † Heaven forbid I eat something super-slimy like flax seed!

There are some things that I really like that are slimy...and if that's they way that okra is, at least I'll know ahead of time. Chinese eggplant (although I don't eat it anymore ) is slimy and I used to love that...especially when made with lots of garlic.

I pretty sure that I like the way just about everything tastes.  And yes, Henrietta, I used to hold my breath while I ate papaya, but to me it tastes delicious...and each one is amazingly different tasting.

Even though I have learned to say, "I don't like coconut." or "I don't eat anchovies"...  It is not because of the way they taste!  

I do believe that the right recipe or method of preparation has a lot to do with making most foods taste good.  When I discovered that liver was ever so much better when it was NOT cooked until it resembled a dried-up leather shoe it made all the difference in the world.

I must admit here are some absolute won't eats, too, like blood.

The only things I can think of regretting having bathed my taste buds in were aloe vera juice and some hard liquors...but I'd be willing to give them another try prepared differently! lol

To think, I only really learned to like eggplant in the last few years. Chinese eggplant is   . Have not had any in about a year..... it's neutral for me. Gonna have to work it into the rotation!

Thanks for the reminder! Once a month or something would be good!
