Omnivore's Hundred

Some of my fellow food bloggers have posted a list detailing 100 foods every omnivore should try. The original creator, Andrew Wheeler, co-author of the British food blog Very Good Taste, put this together and it has been passed around many times!

The official rules are:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (I put them in green)
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating. I was unable to cross-out on Blogger, so I put the items in red. The majority of them aren't Kosher, so I won't eat them. Some, however, like a raw scotch bonnet pepper, are in the "never-would-I-ever-even-if-you-paid-me" category.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at Very Good Taste linking to your results.

*The ones left in plain text have are on the "Haven't tried, but still willing to give it a go..." list*

First up, I saw your questions you posted on Busted and thought I'll tell you a bit about acupuncture. Well, I started going for acupuncture cuz I've heard so much of how it helps with infertility. It doesn't hurt at all, really. My acupuncturist puts the needles in at certain points and they are not very big needles. And each time I tell my acupuncturist what I'm feeling, she does it at different points. She also advises me on what to eat and if I'm at home, which points I should press on, if I'm having a headache or if I'm ovulating. Hope that helps.

Secondly, I love the receipes on your blog. I can't cook for nuts. I'm gonna try some of them, only the simple dishes. :)
