I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
lol...this is funny for me. There's what I don't like, and what I can't have, and they're not necessarily the same.
don't like zucchini, sweet potato, squash, turnip, corn that's not on the cob, BBQ sauce, goat cheese, canned salmon, most fish.
The worst things for my guts are bread and pizza crust. Pizza nukes me the next day, which sucks because I love pizza. If I eat something disagreeable (and I'm still learning what they are), I usually know within half an hour after eating.
I'm trying to think of a food that I don't like......I wasn't a fan of the shark fin soup we were served overseas. Tolerable, but I'd never order it.
Guess I'm easy to please.
Oh, pepperoncinis. I don't like them, but dh and the kids love them. Ick.

I don't like mustard *on* something but I can handle it *in* something. I don't want it on a sandwich, but I'll tolerate it mixed in with potato salad.
Cheese is OK as a condiment, but not as a food, LOL. I like cheese on a veggie pizza but I don't like plain cheese pizza, and if I run out of veggies in a Greek Salad, I leave the last bits of feta in the bowl because I won't eat them without something else. When served cheese & crackers as an appetizer, I eat the crackers plain, which drives my MIL batty since she always sets out the same number of crackers & cheese slices.
And I don't like cabbage in any form. I pick it out of salads, can't stand sauerkraut, and ask what's in a pierogi before ordering. But I love Brussels sprouts which are really just teeny tiny cabbages but they seem to taste so different & have a better texture, too.
Other than those three things, I'll eat pretty much everything except meat.
It takes 12 pounds of grain and 2500 gallons of water to produce ONE POUND of beef.
Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.
"If you care about the planet, it's actually better to eat a salad in a Hummer than a cheeseburger in a Prius."
