While the list of foods I won't eat is REALLY, REALLY LONG, there is nothing that will stop me from reading a recipe.
As far as I am concerned, if the flavors sound intriguing, I can eliminate or substitute ANYTHING! Including meats, veggies and those silly 1/8 tsp of fancy spices I don't have!
With the internet/google...you can come up w/ a sub pretty easy! And if not...when in doubt, leave it out! I don't think the recipe suffers all that much.

Even before I became vegetarian, then vegan, eggs always made me drop out immediately. lol
Always hated them. Wouldn't eat cakes, cookies, brownies, etc., if they had them in them. Even though I couldn't taste them....they were in there!
It's so much easier now since allergy info is listed on products at the end of the ingredients list. I don't have to squint and look for that four letter word hiding in the middle.
Of course, for everyone else in my family, I'll read through recipes.
It's *egg* for me, what's your's?
We must be sisters from the same chicken – LOL! I’m not vegetarian or vegan and if I can’t taste the egg, I’ll eat the food, but if I can taste even the slightest hint of egg flavor, it makes me gag! Been this way since childhood. Hard to go out for breakfast in many restaurants since I do try to avoid excessive carbs, too – i.e., pancakes, muffins, etc.

My first thought was there isn't any ingredient. I love so many foods and there are very few I won't eat or, at least, try. But then I realized (after seeing in some other posts) that I don't/won't eat veal or lamb. I guess I'd pass any recipe that included tripe, too.

I stop short at -
Eggs actually gross me out a LOT, but I'll use them in baking - something where it disappears into the recipe. BUT, I do have to remove that gross white thing in the egg before putting it into the ingredients. gack!
