WIAW: Eating Quirks

Sniffle sniffle. I believe this bug has turned into a minor head cold. Besides being a little drowsy, all is still well. Especially since it’s Wednesday, which means I get to show you food pictures! (When do I not show you food pictures though??) Head over to Jenn’s blog to check out more delicious eats from WIAW!


I think everyone has at least some quirks when it comes to eating food. Some people only take small bites, eat the crust first, pick out seeds/peels, etcetera. I for one have many, so I’m gonna let you in on some of the things I like to do when I eat certain foods (some of these pictures are old, but most are from this week):


When I eat two pieces of toast, I have to put different nut butters on each and take turns biting each. And sometimes I take bites out of the same part of the toast.


When I eat toast-type breakfasts with nut butter, I have to have a glass o’ milk on the side to wash it down. (This was a delicious peanut butter pumpkin banana sandwich on an English muffin.)

I try my best to save the nut butter in my oatmeal for last. Just like my overnight oats! (Left: pumpkin oats!)


I like to add cereal for crunch on top of smoothies and oatmeal. (Banana sunflower seed butter smoothie topped with PB Puffins.)


If possible (and appetizing), I like to combine my foods into bowls. (Tuna, sun dried tomato, broccoli whole wheat pasta with a hard boiled egg.)

More often than not, I don’t use salad dressing for my salads. I use food as my dressing. I also have to add more greens if there’s too much food on top. (Left: Avocado toast + salad with tofu, seared tuna, and salsa.)


Since dried figs are so sweet, I have to dip them in lots of Greek yogurt.

These are just a few of my food quirks that I’ve noticed recently, but I’m sure I’ve got plenty of other weird habits. I’ve always found people’s eating quirks funny and interesting. Other quirks I’ve observed/been told about:

  • My mom, for instance, likes to eat nuts in two to three bites because she likes to “indulgeeeeeeee.”
  • When my brother eats pasta and meatballs, he takes a bite from the meatball and goes back to the pasta, whereas others would focus on eating one or the other.
  • One of my friends only sucks the juice out of oranges without eating the pulp.
  • Another friend eats her bananas by peeling it back a little, breaking off a piece, eating it, and repeating. She’s done this ever since she had awkward eye contact with a guy while eating a banana…..
  • I save the tops of muffins/breads for last because it’s the best part in my opinion. Once though, my mom thought I didn’t want the top of my pumpkin bread slice and she ate it when I wasn’t looking. I was like, “Noooooo I was saving the best for last!” *Sigh*
  • Another friend eats yogurt with a fork.

I find these pretty funny!

So tell me: What are YOUR eating quirks?? {P.S. How do you like the new banner? I think it looks cleaner and a little less….”Here’s me jumping on a beach!!!”}
