I can almost overlook the jelly and and mayo thing being that I enjoy leftover turkey from Thanksgiving ,mayo and canned cranberry.
But I'm really having a hard time with the peanut butter and mayo!

Thats just a turkey sandwich without the bread. Nothing weird about that. Mm... sounds delicious...

I always get strange looks and comments when I put ketchup on a taco. I don't think its weird. Maybe its a regional thing.

I am a skeptic when it comes to food. I try to avoid food with preservatives and don't use a microwave every since I read where it changes the molecular structure of food, which could lead to cancer. Plus the consistency of certain foods change it comes they come out of the microwave, such as pizza become rubbery.

Some other weird food habits

1. Avoid food with preservatives (such as store bought breads, frozen dinners (haven't ate one in years), sodas or drinks with high fructose corn syrup.

2. Avoid soy milk and anything with soy. (Read it interferes with hormone levels and thyroid)

3. Avoid red meat and steak. (read where steak rots in the stomach and is difficult to digest).

4. Don't drink coffee and avoid caffeine.

Here are a few, if I think of some later I'll list them. Chips, crackers and crunchy stuff like that is my weakpoint, I can do without ice cream and rarely buy it because it usually goes uneaten after a eating a few times and gets freezer burn. I also switched from white rice/pasta to brown rice and wheat pasta. I drink hot lemon water in the morning.

Oh---I LOVE cranberry sauce and mayo sandwich too. After Thanksgiving add a little bit of stuffing and it is even better.

You know, for a few weeks of grocery buying, I read labels as to avoid things with high fructose corn syrup. EVERYTHING has high fructose corn syrup!!! This has definitely been a big challenge for me. Even yogurt has it, which suks b'c everybody says it's so good for you and hubby and I like to eat it as snacks!

Stonyfield Farm makes a yogurt without high fructose corn syrup, plus it tastes pretty good.

I just thought of something I do that some people think is weird, although *I* think it's delicious - I put A-1 Sauce on my baked potatoes. I think A-1 Sauce is good on a lot of things, apparently. LOL!
