Confessions of an Adventurous Picky Eater

Amanda Mull on How to Stop Hating Your Least Favorite Food: I’ve never had a traumatic barf experience with cucumbers, so my aversion is probably just an innate dislike. And the culprit behind my long-term cuke hatred might be in the vegetable’s smell, more specifically than its taste. “What we call ‘taste’ is really ‘flavor,’ which is a mixture of taste, smell, and texture,” Sclafani says.

On the block where I grew up, a group of these women got together and decided to do something about it by exercising.  For hours each day, in a group of five or more, they would walk aroun...
