There are no concrete rules when it comes to being a foodie, or just plain eating on the daily. Sure they say it's a sign of good breeding or a refined palette to be able to mix and match food "properly," but we only live once. Eat away in whatever way you see fit. Just don't be surprised if you send a few of us to the toilet to vomit. Somethings being eaten together, or just the mixture of certain ingredients can turn a even the most hardened stomach.

Redditor u/pivamelvin wanted people to tell us about some of their most unique recipes by asking.... What is a food rule that YOU have broken?

Cereal Killer....


I'll eat almost any "hot" food without heating it up, assuming it's properly cooked already. Leftovers are a very quick meal for me... no prep time whatsoever.

My partner eats cereal weird. Drops a couple ice cubes into the bowl, then adds milk. Lets it sit for a minute then adds a thin layer of cereal on top. Slowly adds cereal as the bowl empties and leaves the milk out for the whole process, which takes about an hour.

Savor the Sushi.... 

I do whatever I want with my sushi. GigaCharstoise

When /r/sushi abomination is inspiration and not disgust. YerbaMateKudasai

Just Like Dad.... 

I put my cake in a bowl and pour milk over it... my dad taught me this as a kid and I've found it is much less common than i thought but i recommend everyone tries it its golden. Lysergicidic

YES! My granny used to do it if what she baked was a bit dry, but i keep up the tradition moist or not. So tasty. SparklySpunk

Slush Away....

One time I went to sonic and ordered a slushee. For whatever reason I asked for chocolate and vanilla for the flavors and they actually made it and brought it out to me. Worst thing I ever tasted. CakeDOTexe

I can count to 10!


5 second rule will never stop me! sleeksneaks88

5 second rule is bullcrap anyway. Why would germs just wait a sec, to be respectful? If you are going to eat something off the floor (I won't pretend like I haven't) then own it! Fibwick

Suicide Soda.... 

Mixed all the sodas at the soda fountain, have yet to puke because of it. BitterFortuneCookie

We always called that a Swamp-water. We called it a suicide when you take that rubber mat that collects liquids at the bar and pour it into a shot glass. h00ter7


Red wine goes with EVERYTHING. Chicken, seafood, cake, left over pizza, peanut M&Ms..... MonkeyCatDog

I'm a 30-something woman so apparently I'm supposed to love white wine, but f**k that crap. Y'all can have my $8 Costco Malbec when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers. SmoreOfBabylon

The Leftovers....

Leftover meatloaf for breakfast. Scrambled eggs for dinner. Did it. Will do it again. I apologize for nothing. NowYouzeCantLeave

I never understood why leftover dinner can't make a perfectly delicious breakfast. don_cornichon

From side to side... 

Not me but my friend eats subway sandwiches from the side where you would hold it. Taxevasionboy

You almost have to do this with Jimmy John's sandwiches otherwise the fillings slide out the side. I get irrationally angry when they f**k up the bread so there isn't a good hinge to hold it all together. plexnewbie

Dunk Away....


Apparently its considered bad manner to soak your bread in the juices of the food left on your plate. I used to do this all time and its delicious, but got called out on it recently and now feel self conscious about it. eddie09876

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
