I've eaten a lot of internal organs by mistake, especially when I lived in China and couldn't read the menus and would just pick something randomly and then later find out I'd eaten chicken anuses or something equally gross. But actually, it's not that bad - like pig tripe and steamed pigs trotters. Once I had whole baby birds deep fried and battered on a skewer come out and I just couldn't bring myself to eat it. Poor little things died just for me. But I'm sure the kitchen staff happily devoured them when I sent them back. And I did pay for them.
I've eaten just about anything (except whale) that comes out of the ocean - raw and cooked, from sea worms and a whole variety of seaweed - love the stuff! Stingray is one of my faves.
I even ate a bit of dog by mistake once
... and goat which was quite nice, bbq'd on a skewer with nice spices.
And I've had snake and crocodile (yes, they taste like chicken... and the croc was really fatty) and various other game. I used to eat rabbit kidneys when I was younger. They were a weekend treat for me, just like a giant baked bean
until I cottoned on to why all the other kids weren't eating them too. Eeew!
I won't eat deep friend insects but my husband will snack on grasshoppers and scorpions and whatnot when we travel in Asia.
I don't like most fruit and there's a whole lot of veggies I don't like either. I haven't tried a lot of tropical fruits - like mango and all those SE Asian things. I haven't eaten artichokes either. But I'm pretty sure my mum put just about every veggie in the world on my plate at some point and made me eat it until once I vomited pumpkin back onto my plate (eeew!) and she never forced me again
I'm pretty boring with my veggies but I eat a lot more now than I did even five years ago. Living overseas in a new culinary culture will do that to a girl.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
