So last week (would have posted this earlier but forums weren't working for me for a while) some of us had a chat over on the Discord server that involved beverages (alongside other stuff) in which our preferences and aversions didn't really align. I'd say there's no surprise to be had there, but when it comes to everyday eating I'm more or less clueless about what everybody (except like two people) else does, especially for non-East Asians, effectively finding it inconceivable even that anyone out there can survive without at least three bowls of rice a week. This is especially inconvenient for me when I try to think about what fictional characters that weren't designed by someone else would be eating, because it'd be weird if everybody just ate the way I did.
I'm assuming most people out there have a comfort zone of sorts for what they will usually fall back on for their regular meals since eating out all the time isn't really financially appealing so this shouldn't end up being too much of a hassle to answer.
I always eat a bowl of assorted fruits(I'm cool with consuming the vast majority of commonly sold fruit on the market) and a smoothie made from even more assorted fruits ever since Arim told me that stuff is good for getting my morning energy going. (Had to find some alternative to the blegh that is coffee.) Sometimes I'll have a scoop of ice cream to go with it too, or definitively so when it's summer and the AC doesn't feel like doing its job. Incidentally, I've never understood why other kids allegedly got hyper from sugar overload, because it's never worked that way for me.
Adding onto the blatant disregard for healthy habits (still not anywhere near being fat though, diets are overrated), I will often eat chicken karaage or shrimp tempura alongside a bowl of white rice and miso soup. For vegetable side dishes I'll eat roasted seaweed and sliced carrots, tomatoes, or takuan, or mix carrots, lettuce, and tomato together and pour some red wine vinegar over it for a salad. Omurice is also a thing that I make often, but instead of peas and onions I use carrots and garlic instead, and instead of ketchup I stir-fry hot sauce into the rice cause I'm weird like that. Same goes for Oyakodon, usual vegetables are ditched for replacements I already have. I selectively only bothered to mostly learn how to cook things that don't have to use what I don't see myself regularly buying and it's all been smooth sailing for me so far. Occasionally I'll bake some shishamo too since it doesn't have any cartilage to remove unlike most fish out there.
Whenever I don't feel like eating rice I'll cook pasta (with clam chowder or chicken noodle soup from the can as a side to counter the sourness along with the aforementioned salad) instead using pre-made sauces and more chicken (making Italians everywhere in Europe cringe) alongside large tomato slices because the way restaurants dice them up into being so small it just falls off the fork pissed me off. I'll usually add 1/3 of a cup of lemon juice to Alfredo sauce and...I'm guessing 1/8th of a cup of red wine to Marinara sauce along with some red wine vinegar since as mentioned before I avoid consuming more alcohol than they would give a child during the Eucharist. (Same ratio goes for Mirin used in cooking Japanese dishes. Even when used in cooking, some of the alcohol tends to stay there because the food is done before the amount of time it takes to entirely cook it away.)
For drinks I'll typically have korean pear juice, peach juice, orange juice, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, Sanpellegrino sparkling pomegranate juice, and/or non-alcoholic apple cider in stock. If for whatever reason I've somehow run out of conventional beverages I'll drink diluted red wine vinegar. Plain water is never consumed, ever. It enters my mouth only to wash it from toothpaste, substances I've inhaled that I want off of my tongue, and so much acid it'd kill Blue Leafeon. When I get really lazy though I'll just do something like eat leftover baked chicken with salt and rice or toss some tomatoes and red wine vinegar into leftover pasta noodles and call it a day. If for whatever reason I haven't already eaten all the eggs from making Omurice and Oyakodon already I'll usually just scramble them and toss some diced tomatoes in there to eat the rest. I used to eat cup ramen too but after I got a taste of good quality restaurant ramen I can't go back to eating that...
I don't really eat desserts all that often (probably buy them like once every three months or less unless it's ice cream for summer) but my choices there are vanilla ice cream, castella, and strudels. I don't know why but unfortunately fruit tarts are not often sold at the supermarket where I live.
I've only just realized how little variety actually ends up on my plate when I don't order anything to-go after having it written out...
