How Martha Stewart Manages To Eat Food She Thinks Tastes Horrible

Veteran chef, Martha Stewart, is a widely respected figure in the culinary industry and is known for her expertise on all things related to food. And when it comes to her own food preferences, Stewart has her list of favorites. The domestic goddess is a big fan of classic options like green juices, tuna salads, roast chicken, omelettes, and more. Her food philosophy is also refreshingly simple: "I want organic, I want clean, I want tasty, and I want healthy" (via Harper's Bazaar). 

The television personality is also fond of growing her own produce instead of relying on options at the supermarket. She grows an array of vegetables that include carrots, broccoli, and radishes. However, Stewart does avoid certain food items just like everyone else. Apparently the food star can't stand items like truffle oil. "It's bad," she told Today. "They've done many studies on truffle oil. It clings to your tastebuds, it's a hideous thing. Forget truffle oil."

Martha Stewart's trick for being able to eat food you don't enjoy is simple and easy

Even someone like Stewart cannot possibly avoid food items she dislikes all the time, so she has a clever hack that allows her to get through the experience with minimal pain. According to Food 52, Stewart once got through a serving of durian by not looking at the fruit and refusing to smell it. She thinks that this trick can be applied to nearly anything you don't like eating. "If you don't see the whole thing, and if you put a clothespin on your nose, you can eat it," she confessed.

That said, Stewart has plenty of food items on her list that she prefers to completely avoid if she can get away with it. She cannot tolerate the food served on flights, so she brings her own meals on airplanes. "I try to avoid plane food most of the time," she told The New York Times. "I just don't find it very appetizing."
