Are there single serving portions of certain foods that you can never seem to finish?

Asked by JmacOroni (3288points) March 22nd, 2011

For example, I can never finish a whole box of raisins, or an entire packet of oatmeal. I can’t eat two whole eggs, either. I know that none of those things are a large amount of food, but for whatever reason I can’t ever seem to finish a serving of any of them.
Is that really odd, or are there certain foods that you can’t seem to eat very much of before you can’t take another bite?

Dried fruit does it to me, too. Or anything with a strange texture, no matter how yummy it actually tastes.

I can never eat a whole small bag of unsalted almonds, even if I eat them without anything else.

If I eat them with something else to enhance the flavor or texture, such as salsa or dried fruit, then I can eat a lot more of them, but still not all 8 oz.

One thing I’ve learned from this thread is who’s generous with their lurve. ;-)

That is why I have dogs (and would love to have chickens again). I never have to feel guilty about wasting food because someone always eats it! (or the compost pile gets it!)

Mushy peas! Way too filling & also as hot as bloody lava.

Sweet potatoes or yams. There’s something about the texture just makes my mouth say, “That’s enough!” very quickly. I don’t dislike them. I just don’t want any more.

@Sunny2 that’s how I feel about oatmeal. :)

@JmacOroni I can’t even think about eating oatmeal. Maybe if it was the only thing available or I’d have to go hungry. . .

With enough butter, cream and honey, oatmeal is delicious!!!

I like oatmeal. I just feel like I can’t eat very much of it before the texture gets to me.
@rooeytoo with enough butter, cream and honey.. anything would be delicious! :)
