About this project
Hello! My name is Rachael Oehring, and I'm a picky eater. This might be acceptable were I not harboring this silly dream of becoming a food writer, so I'm embarking on an intrepid journey, forcing myself to eat all the foods I can't stand so I can share my story with those who hate tomatoes as much as I do.
I'm raising $10,000 so that I can finish my research on adult picky eating, and embark on a trans-continental journey to find the best of the foods that I hate, such as Roquefort cheese in France, or salmon caught fresh from the Pacific Ocean. I'm also going to interview nutritionists, taste scientists, behavioral psychologists, nutritional anthropologists and neurologists (among others) to figure out why some people (namely me) are picky eaters
This book will combine an in-depth exploration of picky eating and whether or not humans are genetically, biologically or socially predisposed to restrictive eating habits, with first-person essays detailing my adventures in trying to get over the mundane foods that I hate the most.
Below is a list of all of the foods I'll be tackling:
