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....

Giphy

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

CHEERS! 

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....

Giphy

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

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
