I thought it would be fun to see what food aversions we're all having, so far for me it's anything I have to prepare (something about seeing the food/smelling the food for too long), and tacos.

my aversions seem to change minute to minute but vegetables and meat are pretty much disgusting to me. I can only eat bland foods like pbj sandwiches...

I discovered last week that I can't stand the smell of kielbasa anymore. I tried cooking it, and I had to have DH take over while I went to another room. The smell was just too strong and overwhelming! I couldn't eat it, either.

Chocolate. Seems to be the one thing that I simply can't tolerate. I told DH it was the first sign that I was pregnant, as I LOVE chocolate. For the past few weeks even a taste of it is enough to make my stomach churn though.

OK, I should have known better than to read this thread, LOL!

The smell of fresh garlic, onions, broccoli, or basil. (We get a weekly box of fresh veggies from a farm all summer, so this is actually a problem, I can't get half of it home in my car!!)

Anything fried. Anything I have to cook. Anything that was good yesterday.

Just about everything at the moment. I'm so sick that nothing looks good or smells good. Not even ice-cream!

i was intent on being as healthy as possible in preparation for this pregnancy and started eating super fancy cereals with omega-3's, dha and all this other good stuff. So i got quite a few different boxes that barely got eaten and i was already pregnant. Well i have a whole collection of them now and I CANT STAND even thinking about them. I feel like i will puke just from the thought!

otherwise i am loving food and food smells right now. i am pretty much always feeling like i can eat an elephant!

I have aversions to ALL foods also. Especially vegetables.

What I can eat is very limited. It stinks. Carbs are usually safe.

Just about everything


Although, some of the stuff that will REALLY push me over the edge....chicken, ranch, and mayo/ketchup (not sure which exactly, they were both on the offending hamburger
)...I know there's more though.

What stinks is, what I don't have an aversion to is something I absolutely can't have because I'm allergic - eggs. Oh you can't imagine how badly I'm craving a big fat breakfast burrito!

Mayonaise - please no mayo. I've been using plain yoghurt in salads and such instead. And I can not handle cooking anything involving oils or grease of any kind - not even just that little smidge of olive oil - GROSS.

Mamajo, so sorry you are allergic to eggs. They are my life saver. Hope you can find something else yummy to eat!

Raw chicken, so we aren't eating much of it cooked, since I do the cooking...

Leftovers (unless it's pizza)

My nose is starting to tell me, like it did with #1, that all raw meat is tainted, so I am constantly questioning whether my hamburger is good. Dh patiently smells it for me.

Milk--omygod. Ew. Gross. Nasty. Barfo.

Right now, I can't eat onions, garlic, or anything strongly spiced or herbed. I can't stand the smells even, so poor DH gets shunned whenever he eats that stuff, too. He tried to hang onions to dry, and I couldn't stand the smell. I threw out all the thyme I was drying, too, because the smell bothered me so much.

Also, I am not wanting raw or lightly cooked veggies. My veggies have to be cooked like they're going in baby food, or I can't eat them. I haven't been able to eat more than a few mouthfuls of anything green for two weeks, and that really bothers me.

Last time around with DD, I had a major chicken aversion, but that was really it. This time it's much worse.

Any moment something could hit me the wrong way, but pretty consistently sweets, chocolate, eggs, and basil are pretty icky...

We were relying pretty heavily on grilled meat over here and up to yesterday it was fine, did a huge grill out last night to have food for this week and this morning I opened the fridge and can't stand the smell of the bottom shelf. My dh is dismayed as there is no way he can eat everything himself
