There are a few things I eat on a near-daily basis that make some people want to gag. You probably have things like that, too: Pickles (yum). The increasingly popular kimchi. Something more innocuous, perhaps, like mayonnaise.
Food judgment is real, especially if you're someone who likes to eat semihealthy on a regular basis. Let's just say I've never had anyone pressure me into eating a handful of spinach, or, inversely, chide my order of french fries. And I've adjusted to the fact that some of my favorite snacks seem to be foods that elicit strong opinions.
One of them is bananas. People have thoughts about bananas, particularly the idea of consuming them in enclosed spaces (the smell?) and eating anything other than a perfectly ripe, yellow-peeled one. (One bruise does not a ruined banana make.) But bananas are probably doing okay for themselves. If you can't appreciate the perfect compactness and nutrition of the potassium-laden fruit the way other primates do, that's on you.
But the other snack I love needs someone in its corner: plain Greek yogurt, a healthy food that has exploded in popularity in the past decade.
As one of my friends, one who likes flavored yogurt but cannot handle it plain, said: "It seems like yogurt is the food equivalent to the word 'moist.' "
Divisive. Easily dismissed. It doesn't have to be this way.
