    What do you like that you just can’t eat one more mouthful of?

    I’m diabetic, and have to monitor carbs and calories. I eat pretty much the same breakfast, 11:00am snack, 1:00 pm lunch every day, because my blood sugar is predictable.

    I may hang myself if I see another pouch of tuna, and oatmeal is starting to make me want to jump off a roof, but it’s a one-story ranch, so what’s the point?

    I hope I never tire of hard boiled eggs or peanut butter (crunchy). If I ever tire of bratwurst, I’m just giving up.

    My wife loves grilled or baked salmon, but I think I need a break, or I’m going to start eating cat litter (unused, ideally).

    Anything you just can’t choke down, that was once a favorite?

    Having trouble with chicken, chicken, chicken. It's starting to taste like nothing to me. I'd rather have sausage, beef, lamb, or something right out of the sea.
    But chicken is available, cheap, and in a million forms. Ugh.

    Kraft dinner, Canadian for mac and cheese. I overdosed on it in highschool. Mr noodle, specifically that brand. Not all ramen noodles are equal. Mr noodle is the bottom of the pile. Malt liquor, I expect most would agree on that one. ;)

    Steak... I've lost my taste for it. A nice thick, smoked and reverse seared pork chop is my go-to now.

    Not exactly “food”, but I’m starting to not enjoy bourbon anymore.

    Surely a sign of the End Times.

    It's cyclical. I can get burned out on something but it's temporary, I come back around eventually.

    Right now I'm a bit overdone with salads.

    haha! I've got to make KD just right to be able to eat it anymore, (thanks to weird lingering pregnancy crapola,) but when I do. YUM! I still love the stuff. ;) I can't do Mr. Noodles anymore either, no matter what I try to do with them. Other brands, still are ok but no more than once a week, and I do hit patches where I just can't eat them for a while. FWIW, I've shied away from malt liquor but I will never, ever be able to swallow Irish Cream again, thanks to University. ;)

    @spumwuzzle, I'm the same with oatmeal right now. We eat it most mornings from Fall through Winter into Spring. By late Spring, I'm done with it. The kids are too.

    Hot dogs! The Adventure Kiddos love hot dogs and I am sick of them. They would eat them every day if they could. They like them steamed, with no buns, with ketchup and MAYBE honey mustard. I like them best once in a while, very well done, in a bun with cheese, ketchup, mustard and maybe something to spice it up. I get one bad bite, though, and it turns me off them for months at a time. That's where I am with them right now, which means I'm back to making two lunches every day when I've got kids at home. UGH! LOL!

    I gotta clarify, Jim. Maybe it's an East Coast Canada vs West Coast Canada thing, or an Ontario versus the rest of Canada thing but..... Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, A.K.A. Kraft Dinner, is KD. Mac and Cheese is a TOTALLY different thing. LOL!! KD is in a class all by itself. All the knock-off boxed mac n cheese things are terrible. BUT... BUT!!! .... Homemade mac and cheese is DA BOMB, especially when you add bacon! :D

    I would have to say hotdogs, only way I can eat one is if fixed over campfire. I agree with @Paulyseggs on being diabetic and heart condition, I told my doc. when she explained what I could eat " So if it tastes good ,Spit It Out"

    We are vegetarians when we are at home. When we are camping we do eat some meat but usually just chicken or salmon. last great meal we had was the Shane burgers a few weeks back. yum. beef is very seldom and pork is almost never(both were in Shane Burger).
    The #1 food I get burned out on is brown rice with oatmeal coming in at #2. just need to find new ways to prepare the oatmeal as that is probably healthiest food for my system. beans can ware me out but there is always different ways to eat them so not so bad. our vegetarian grain bowls account for at least 3 dinners per week, one night usually enchiladas and maybe homemade pizza another night as well. needless to say, we sometimes just go camping to eat meat it seems.

    My apologise. I do agree with your view. Mac and cheese is a homemade and a far better meal than Kraft dinner. I used the the term knowing I was speaking mostly to American readers and chose it for the sake of clarity. The term KD is ubiquitous in B.C. also. Again I used kraft dinner for clarity. I would respectfully disagree that all knock offs are terrible. While the majority fit that description, some flavours of Annie's are pretty tasty. Granted if you eat one and expect KD flavour, you will be disappointed. That said, add tuna and ketchup and it doesn't matter who's noodles you started with

    Annie's is taking up increasing shelf space around here. I think I'm going to try it. Or, maybe I'll make the kids try it first. Like Mikey. Do you remember him? Now I'm feeling my age. HAHHA!!

    I find that using spices makes boring food very good. Take oatmeal, add some cardamom cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, coconut, cloves pepper, jaggery and nutmeg and you have something much better than the garbage that comes in the pouches.

    For anything that you want that is meaty, spicy or salty, use cumin, turmeric and coriander as a base and add from there. If it is to be sweet and or milky, use cardamom, turmeric, and ginger then add on from there. If you are going to have eggs or anything with egg yolk use cilantro or parsley, eggs are amazing with cumin. If it is food that does not digest that well use some fennel, or eat candied fennel after the meal. Anytime carbs are taken make sure that cinnamon occurs somewhere in the meal, cinnamon tea is my favourite.

    ROFL! Oh yes! Mikey was the cereal Jedi when I was a kid. Our store didn't carry that cereal. That didn't stop mom from hearing about every trip to the store. My other favorite was the Kokanee beer Sasquatch. I don't recall if I ever asked mom for beer?:33:ROFL!

    My mom didn't do sugar either. Coke/Pepsi was the forbidden fruit. I recall being extra annoying and getting a coke, despite protest in the gorcery store. After that I only remember a red faced mom and every adult looking at me. Apparently sugar and caffeine was a bad combo when it came to impulse control LOL.

    I went years without eating summer sausage.

    Right after high school graduation, a buddy and I went "backpacking" in the mountains. Two flatlanders with little experience, up in the mountains..

    We brought summer sausage for lunglch and dehydrated backpacking meals for dinner. Turns out, we spent a lot of time hungry, and summer sausage lost its appeal. We ate it as-is, boiled, roasted over a fire, and fried in hot oil. By the time the trip was over, I spent years disgusted by summer sausage.
    Fortunately, now I really like the slow to spoil, preserved log of meat.

    This is a little off topic but I'm a type 1 diabetic (insulin dependent) and eat pretty much whatever I want (with some limitations of course) but still maintain great glucose control. Don't force yourself to eat the same exact thing every day when you don't need to. You can change things up a bit and just keep more of an eye on your sugars when having something new.

    I got burned out on oatmeal. The doctor said it was good for my BP, and healthy to boot. I was eating oatmeal 5 days a week for breakfast.

    Sandwiches. They’re convenient, easy, and make a turd, but I’m beyond sick of them.

    Chicken in any form!!
    Unfortunately my daughter the cook loves it so 3 or 4 times a week it is on the menu.
    Give me a greasy burger pork in any form a rare steak and I'm a happy camper.

    I've added fruit, but not peanut butter. Next time I get the gumption to eat any I'll add it.

    Rice. It’s a staple here. Kinda getting old. There’s 99 million things to cook with it.
    I love red beans and rice, but that’s even losing appeal.
    I can’t stand pizza. It has to be greasy, cheesy, spicy, and on a hand-tossed style crust before I can stand it. Very few places here can do a good pizza.
    I’m actually on the verge of burning out on food in general. I need to switch my diet up.
    Yesterday I had Foreman grilled boneless pork chops. I seasoned dad’s with salt, pepper, and garlic. Mine got that and a healthy dose of chili powder. They weren’t bad at all.
    I’ve had a boloney sandwich for supper every night this week. Bread, one slice of cheese, a slice of regular thickness boloney, mustard and lettuce. They were great.

    To lean out I give up carbs, it's a bit extreme but it works for me. One fried egg and a small piece of meat like one round of Canadian bacon for breakfast. Lunch a salad with some shredded cheese and chicken, then a reasonably small dinner. It get me through months during weight cut phases. So far down 8.5 pounds this week.
    Small tweaks here and there will keep some variety. I try to focus on how my body feels after eating certain foods and let that guide food choices. One guarantee is if I eat a high carb food it drives the desire for more of it then followed by an energy crash.

    I eat oatmeal 6 or 7 days a week, easy and fast to make. I buy it bulk organic regular size not quick oats. I find it's easy to change up or down, so I'm not eating it the same thing everyday. I like to put huckleberry and blackberry's in it that I've picked and frozen the summer before. At this time of year strawberry are in season, so I put them in also. The other thing I do is put yogourt on it also. I keep the carbs down by not using any sugar or honey. Instead of berries I've also added, banana's, peaches, apples pineapple etc. just to make it interesting.

    I ate oatmeal every work day for about 8 years. I’m over it.

    I also like eating out less and less. I almost never eat processed food. It makes my stomach hurt and my scalp breaks out. It’s weird.

    After nearly 50 years of drinking coffee daily, I'm burned out on it....not! I just changed to a low carb diet, not burned out yet, but sure miss bisquits, cookies, crackers, etc. I have dropped ten pounds though.
