The Omnivore's Hundred

I love lists. I love crossing things off of lists even more. It makes me feel highly accomplished. When I saw this omnivore's hundred on Just Hungry  I knew I had to give it ago!
This will also serve as an eating checklist for me in a celebration of sorts, since I found out for sure that I am absolutely 100% non celiac. I will try ANYTHING!
Here are the rules of this
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 extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.
