meanwhile salt is still gross and i have to ask restaurants to hold the salt most of the time

y'all can add all the salt you like, but it's pretty darned difficult for me to remove it from food

I can't speak to your experiences in the kitchen or where you live. But over here (CA) where I've spent most of my time, healthy eating has been more and more of a cultural thing and lots of restaurants want to cater to that, be it low sodium, vegetarian options, gluten-free options, etc.

The only culinary “Wait no, stop that” I can think of is when the Missus shakes black pepper all over her cantaloupe pieces.

This has always been my argument. I mean, they put a shaker right there at the table.

It is not the norm outside of California.

And I'm seeing more and more of the trend of restaurants leaving condiments off the table entirely, because the food is supposed to taste right before the plate leaves the kitchen.

Healthy eating? No, this is Louisiana. We don't do that here.

(Boiled crawfish/shrimp/crabs have so much sodium, most people will temporarily swell up after eating.)

My sister in law boils her perogis by dumping them frozen into cold water and then turning the heat on.

Honestly, I'm more of a source of others' culinary pet peeves. Like, I put hot sauce on Cheetos.

"Hot sauce...on Cheetos?"



Hey, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

But anyway, I will never understand why honey glazed carrots in a can are a thing. We tried a couple of cans one week 'cuz we couldn't find the boxed Green Giant kind and the preservatives made them all mushy and sour and nasty.

Considering Flamin' Hot Cheetos are a thing, I don't think it's that shocking.

The vegetables that don't take super well to canning are "most of them", I've found. I can't expect the honey helps much.
