Are you guys not worried about your first world bodies rejecting tolerance for these alternative foods?

I voted I'd try a bite if someone else ordered it. I don't like 'wasting' my food order on an unknown.

I could see myself ordering a 'sampler tray' including guinea pig. I love samplers when it's my first time at an establishment.

I'd try it. I mean, I wouldn't eat it here, but in another country as a cultural experience - absolutely. But I also love rabbit, had alligator, frog legs, had a boiled sheep's header served on a platter in Norway, and ate horse before.

Unless cruelty (such as shark fin) is involved. Or it's an endangered species that's illegal to hunt, I'm willing to give most things a try if it's an ethnic cuisine or some staple diet of another culture.

I haven't had much of a problem to be honest. My stomach is pretty amazing lol I can eat almost anything.

Also I try some, and I don't eat a huge meal of it so I've never had a problem and even if I do, unless I get severely sick or food poisoned, I think it's still worth a try. I like other cultures and I like new things, I think the experience is worth it barring getting some kind of extreme food poisoning or disease or something.

I have eaten stranger foods on my travels.. and IMO when it comes to meat ( meat from mammals) the body can handle much more than we think it can.

Now, on the other hand, my body is MUCH less tolerant of spices/veggie creations.
I have some yummy spicy greens in peru that ended up with me having some..not so lady like.. problems

I've always wondered because that guy off the travel channel was always getting sick from the stuff he ate. The one who traveled for bizarre stuff, not the one who did food challenges.

Ugh absolutely not. If it's cute and fuzzy and commonly found in pet shops... no way.

I'm an extremely picky eater though and the only meat I eat is chicken. So it's kind of a moot point. I don't try new things

I likely wouldn't if it was a choice, but mainly because I'm not a very adventurous eater. I like to order things I know I'll like. I was scared of Thai food of all things when I stayed at Journey's breeder's house last month LOL. To my surprise it was pretty good. I didn't grow up eating 'different' things though and tend to stick to the same old tried and true stuff. So something like Guinea Pig would definitely not be something I'd want to try unless it was my only option or something.

I have a guinea pig tattoo. I love them. I just don't think I could eat one of those little dudes, but I'm not morally opposed to any one eating them.
