Strange eating habits

Postby Decker » Mon Nov 24, 2008 5:22 pm UTC

One thing I noticed is that certain people eat their foods certain ways, and they don't always make sense.

I always scrape my fork over the top of my mashed potatoes before I eat them.
I crunch up my Ramen noodles really small when I cook them.
I eat chicken wings the exact same way every time.

Any of you have certain ways you eat certain foods?

I always smell food before I eat it.
I have to have a light on so I can see my food properly.
I'm sure there are other autistic ass-things I do with food, but I'm too tired to remember them right now.

I always call my mom autistic cus she smells her food--but I do it as an endearment. :P

I tend to save the best part of an item (say the top golden loveliness of a twice baked potato) for last. I tend to dissasemble foods or eat them in strange ways----Like for aero bars...I eat the bottom first to expose the bubbles so they melt better. I do not like when vegetables get mixed into my mashed potatoes...

I disassemble food too...especially lasagna.

I also use, or at least try to use a fork when I'd really be better off with a spoon, except for soup. Chili, stew, occasionally ice cream, I'll eat with a fork. Soup, i have acknowledged, is, by its very nature too runny for a fork, though I have tried on occasion to eat it with one.

I disassemble candy bars when possible, especially Twixes and Snickers.
I purposefully drain the milk from spoonfuls of cereal so that I may drink the milk later. I do something similar with pasta that has sauce. I eat the pasta, and then leave the sauce for last.
I tend to examine my food closely each time I take a bite (this stems from past experiences with not being able to spot bad food).
I let my ice cream melt and drink it while it's still frothy. :D

I used to love Twix bars, until the day I decided to eat the caramel off, chew the chocolate off, and then eat the biscuit/cookie part last. I was so offended at how very bad the cookie tasted that I stopped eating Twix at all. I felt cheated, like I had been given a piece of chocolate-covered cardboard and told it was a tasty wafer.

I tend to do a lot of preparation to foods so I can portion them evenly and make sure every bite has the same amount of whatever it's supposed to have. Especially at breakfast, where the pancakes need to have an even coating of melted butter and the sausage is sliced into a sufficient number of pieces to match.

Sandwiches I make are usually excessively "neat"

I don't get people who take sandwiches apart and eat everything seperately, though. That's like portioning your Mai Tai, then thinking better of it and slugging back a shot of lime juice, a shot of orgeat syrup...

I'm similar to that. Differing from someone above, I hate to dissassemble my food, I'm a bit neurotic about symmetry and balance, so I like the same balance of flavours in my mouth every time I take a bite.

Any time I bake a pepperoni pizza, the slices of pepperoni have to be spread evenly over the pie so each slice gets an equal amount.

Also, when I eat popcorn, I like to bite off the flayed-out bottom of each piece so that just the soft, rounded top part remains. Then I squish that part before I eat it.

I always smoosh my cold sandwiches flat before I eat them.

All my sandwiches (cold and hot) I "trim" before I eat them. I eat anything that's sticking out from under the bread.

When I cut a pizza, I try to get it that the knife goes in between all the pepperonis and whatnot instead of cutting them up.

I really dislike it when I run out of a particular food on my plate, so I make sure I alternate between foods to keep a constant ratio of each. This is particularly evident when I eat at my favorite sushi place. I always get the same thing, and always in the same order. 2 california rolls for every salmon roll, then a bite of the rice pocket, repeat twice.

Allow me to join the neat sandwich/even pizza bandwagons.

When I order an affogato, I tend to save most of the coffee in order to wash down the rest. I really do not have a sweet tooth. I should just order an armagnac and an espresso and be done with it. And yet I keep ordering affogati. I wonder why that is.

When I make a cocktail with a salted/sugared rim, I spend some brainpower calculating the turn of the glass with each sip (or size of the sipgulp per turn) so that the salt/sugar is consumed in equal proportion to the drink. Why do I have to be so fond of margaritas and sidecars?

I do that too. hmm.


I noticed I put salt on first, then pepper. I don't know why. Salt, then pepper.
Also, I eat off all the crust/outside of anything before going right into the good stuff inside. Conservatism.
And finally, I always eat pizza from the crust, too.

When I'm dipping food into something sweet--like caramel or chocolate--I always try to be stingy in the begining and gradually increase the sweet aspect as I go.

I always try to keep my foods as seperate as possible unless they're certain colors. Like red and brown can mix a lot of the time and green and yellow tends to go together well. Now that everything has all these artifical dyes though I have trouble making my system work. :(

Sandwiches should be cut into nonstandard shapes. I'm pretty sure I posted about this before... [Search function interlude] Here we go.

When I make sandwiches for young children I always cut them into wacky shapes. Sometimes into strips --vertical or diagonal. Sometimes into squares or triangles (quartered either way). I don't eat bread, but if I did I'd continue doing that for myself too :D.

Being mildly obsessive-compulsive, EVERYTHING I eat has its own pattern. If it's the first time I'm trying something, there will be a pattern that ends up being followed within the next several meals.

I feel like the only stranger here, I happily mix everything I eat, or don't care if it mixes, it often makes a nice taste when it mixes! (like I found out scrambled eggs taste kind of nice after having a glazed donut sitting on them before I find a table to sit at!)

I guess maybe the only strange "eating" habit I have, is the fact that I won't eat food if I don't like how it smells, it might be the best tasting food ever, but if it smells in a way I don't like, I won't eat it (like this stuff my family makes, I don't remember what it's called but it's hispanic (I think, it's hard to seperate the hispanic from the filipino) and it involves pigs feet).

I guess another not quite so eating habity thing is, I fail at eating off plates, well I can eat off plates but I need to use my free hand to help get food onto my knife/spoon. So I prefer to eat out of bowls, I'll also either not cut certain things that are too big to easily place in my mouth, because it's too difficult to cut them fast enough, so instead I hold it down with my fingers and rip it open with my fork!

I usually make mashed potatos into different shapes while I eat them. (make a squere, eat some, make a triangle, eat some, make a circle, eat some)

I also crush my ramen up as small as I can.

Yes!!! I knew I couldn't be the only one!!!! I save the yummy cheesy top of lasagne, eat all the meaty stuff first, then the flavoursome pasta sheets, and go back to the pasty cheesy goodness to finish.
Soft centred chocolates - I eat off the top, then eat the centre, then the hollow chocolate shell.

By the way, I remember reading somewhere that ice cream, when it first became popular, was originally eaten with a fork. I can't remember where I saw it though...

How to eat rice crispies:
Pour rice crispies in a bowl.
Put a spoonful of sugar on top and mix it around.
Add milk down the side of the bowl until the crispies on the opposite side rise up slightly. (I don't like milk by itself, so that's just enough).
While eating, sort of scoop from where you added the milk, so you get some soggy ones from the bottom and the other dry ones on top.

That always annoyed the hell out of me, because my flatmate does that too. Then one day he decides to just take the blender out and blend his ramen. It came out in a powder, and cooking it resulted in what can only be described as slush.

Yet, since I eat everything, my only habit is I refuse to eat dinner before 5pm.

I hate 'wet' food like pasta with lots of sauce or juicy meat so I cook all my food until it is dry. I normally bake my meat in the oven and if I'm eating something that is too wet I will microwave it until it dries out. (eg. I have to microwave easy mac for ~10 minutes instead of ~3.)

I can't won't eat eggs, cauliflower or honey because the high sulfur content makes them taste blech >_<

I always put candy and chocolate in the freezer before I eat it.

That's about it. And if I'm with friends or whatever I will put my issues aside if I think it's going to offend / annoy someone (except the eating eggs thing 'cause they make me barf).

I "trim" my sandwiches and burgers as well. I tend to make sure everything is very neat on my plate.

With hot dogs, I take a bit out of one end, then turn it around and take a bite off the other end, then continue eating like that.

I won't eat hash browns without ketchup.

I eat everything from the outside-in, that way I get the most flavor in the last bite (like with a hamburger, I'll get a little of everything, instead of eating, say, all the pickles before I get to the last bite).

This one is only slightly food related, and I'm the only person I've ever met who does this... I ALWAYS drink out of straws when I'm eating out (that's not the unusual part). I always unwrap my straw first, then fold the straw wrapper up and put it next to the salt shaker (or the napkin dispenser if there is no salt shaker), and THEN I can take a drink. I absolutely loathe those little plastic straw wrappers that you can't fold. And most of the time, I don't realize I'm doing it, until someone points it out to me.

Oh yeah, and when I'm eating chips, I always place the "flavored" side (the side with the most seasoning or salt on it) to my tongue. I'm a fiend for flavor.

I was actually surprised when I found out that there are a LOT of people who do this. Many of my friends and family have pointed it out to me, saying that it's odd. I think my family and friends just don't understand the value of flavor. :-P

I have a few strange eating habits as a result of a wheat allergy. One of them is a pb and banana sandwich without the sandwich. I melt about a tbsp of pb in the microwave and dip a banana in it.

CAUTION: TEXT WALL AHEAD

I fret about keeping an equal amount of each type of food on my plate at the same time. I also try to keep them separate until I take a utensil and grab a little of each, so I'm eating them mixed together but they remain separate on the plate.

Whenever I'm eating a food made up of several different foods, I always try to keep it together and stop it from falling apart; failing that, I take a fork and stab everything and eat it as described above.

With cookies or hamburgers, I try to eat all around the outside first and then eat until the last bite I take is the center.

I have a bad habit of leaving a single chunk of meat on the plate because I'm so full that if I eat it then I might explode like in Monty Python.

My M&M ceremony is elaborate:

Spoiler:
1. Pour a bowl of M@Ms- enough to last you for about five minutes or so.

2. Get a glass of water to stop from getting chocolate dehydration. Fill the cup up to the second-to-last line from the top on the water cup. Drink whenever you get thirsty.

3. Find which color has the least M@Ms of that color in the bowl. Count how many of that color there are.

4. Start with red. Eat red ones one at a time until the amount of red ones reaches the number you just found.

5. Do so with the rest, going down the list: Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Brown. Leave the lowest-number color alone.

6. Eat a red one. Then an orange one. Go down the list again, eating one at a time of each color.

7. You should be left with just one of each color. Go down the list again.

8. Wonder why it take you ten minutes to eat M&Ms.

Yes, I'm weird.

Where to start?

Custard Tarts - I nibble the top edge all the way round, then the pastry sides, then the pastry off the bottom before eating the egg custard in one go.
Similarly with port pies, which is a bit more of a challenge as I give them a few seconds zap in the microwave to melt the jelly.

Any sandwiched biscuits like bourbons: try to separate the top layer away from the creme. Eat the creme then the 2 layers.

Condiment order on Fish & Chips: Vinegar, Ketchup, Salt. Vinegar after ketchup means thinner ketchup, ketchup hides salt.

I could go on, but it only gets weirder...

I actually also eat M&Ms in a manner that leaves me with an equal arrangement of colors, when I'm eating a handful at once. Never done it with a whole bowl. And sometimes just to be cheeky I eat all of one color and continue sequentially with the rest.

I do the same thing with any candy that comes in a multitude of colours. Though generally i just make a little graph on a plate or tabletop. Something like...3 reds high, 4 oranges high, 7 yellows high. Then I eat all the ones that are over the top of the smallest graph section. Then one from each column till done.

I have a tendency to chew (especially M&M's and Skittles) food so that both sides of my mouth chew an equal amount. When I do it with M&M's or Skittles i have to chew a equal amount of each color on each side so i often split the candies in half. I think surprisingly this is my only eating habit like this.
