13 Foods You Eat Because Your Genes Make You Like Them (Yes, There's Bacon)

by Ryder

Your coffee addiction is probably genetic. Research nerds discovered you have 17 genes linked to specific food preferences. Genetics are most likely responsible for whether or not you like:

  • Artichokes
  • Bacon
  • Broccoli
  • Coffee
  • Chicory (aka fancy lettuce like endive or radicchio )
  • Dark Chocolate (the broccoli of chocolates)
  • Blue Cheese
  • Ice Cream (you can really stick it to your parents if their genetics made you hate ice cream)
  • Buttered Bread
  • Orange Juice
  • Plain Yogurt
  • White Wine (now you can claim your parents ARE the reason you drink)
  • Mushrooms

Don't show this to your picky eating offspring, they will use this as a reason to avoid everything on the list... except bacon.
