Default Do You Develop Food Aversions?

This isn't new for me but is now more frequent. If I eat any food too often, I suddenly can't bear the thought of taking another bite of it, e.g., eggs. I depend on eggs for my protein/fat source more than on meat or poultry, so this does get problematic. Even if I were to make a casserole or one-pot meal, I'd have to just store/freeze most of it because after two or three servings, I'd not be able to eat it. Do any of you folks experience this?

I go through phases of liking a food and eating a lot of it, then going "off" it for a while. I think that's fairly normal.

If eggs were my only source of protein, I'd probably have the same trouble. I am limited by several food sensitivities, and it takes some effort to find new ways of fixing the same old ingredients. Pinterest is a good resource for me. Lots of foods and recipes posted there.

Thee number one thing I have to deal with in my life. Because I'm on a fixed income I can only afford to go to town and shop once a month. I take a cab; $16, round trip.

I have a printable list made up of just about everything I buy at the store. Anything I won't need...I cross off the list before I go. When I pick an item off the shelf...I cross it off my list. When everything is crossed off the list...I head for the checkout counter.

Before I go, I decide what's going to last me 30 days. I'm a picky eater...so there aren't many meals I can choose from. Let's say 3 choices are Tacos, Stew and Spaghetti. Tacos come first because the lettuce and tomatoes have a shelf life. Two tacos for dinner...so that means Tacos...5 days straight. Trust me...I make a mean taco...but come the 5th day...I'm not that enthused.

Next would be stew because of the celery. Celery, at best, will last 5 days before I have to cook it. My stew lasts 8 days. Yeah...stew, 8-days straight. By the time the 8th day comes around I'm swearing off stew for the rest of my life. Freeze half the stew for another day? Frozen/unfrozen stew sucks!

Spaghetti? 7 days. Same with that. Around the 6th day I find myself adding Tabasco sauce...just for a change.

Snacks are another thing. Dinner is my first meal of the day around 4pm. I'm a night/TV/during-the-commercial-fix-something eater.

I'm not a try-something-new cook. If it comes out wrong...I still have to eat it. Then there's all those additives that I'll never use again; spices and such. At my house, at the end of the month, all there is left to eat is either salt or coffee filters.

So, yes...I can relate.

I must admit that, after 4-6 weeks of eggs and bacon for breakfast, in an attempt to eliminate some variables from my BG levels, I've actually tired of bacon. I did not think that would be possible. (I bought sausage for this week.).

I've also been eating salad greens with some sort of meat for lunch; same reason. I'm not tired of that yet, but I can introduce some variety into both. I can see the day coming, though.

So, yes, I've developed some temporary food adversions. But I've developed some permanent ones, too. I've never had much of a sweet tooth but learning -- even before my diagnosis -- that the really gooey stuff made me feel like #&*^ has made me kind of grimace internally whenever I see an IHOP commercial or ice cream mounded with ... stuff.

itissteve, I also have not usually had much of a sweet tooth; breadstuffs however are a very different beast. I'd much rather have had a bagel than a slice of chocolate cake. Hershey bars used to be my most favorite 'treat' on Earth but since they changed their content some years back, I just stopped buying them. That new donut that Tasty Kreme released on the public today, "..a collaboration between Krispy Kreme and Reese's..." is the epitome of gastronomic insult to my senses.
