The Omnivore 100

This is so fun! I came across this list while reading Becks and Posh the other day which directed me to it's home at Very Good Taste. I love doing these things. While they take a little time, it's interesting to see your results and even better to read everyone else's. If you have a few minutes, go ahead and fill in the list for yourself. Have fun!

How the Omnivore's 100 Works:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.

2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.

3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

4) Optional: Post a comment at Very Good Taste, linking to your results.
