I keep getting cravings, and most of them relate to nostalgia, I have real urges for things I really loved as a child, my favourite foods etc. What’s more, my food aversions are pretty similar to those that I had got over in adult life that I just couldn’t stand as a child….I nearly vomited when eating a parsnip!
So, the foods I love are things like macaroni cheese, anything made from chicken, basic pasta and tomato sauce, orange juice, apple juice, ice lollies, jelly and ice cream, boiled ham with boiled potatoes and parsley sauce, bread, bread and more bread, crisps – weirdly ready salted have been a particular urge, and I hate salt! Crumpets are another one, loving eating crumpets the right side of crispy, when I’ve got in from an early shift at work, or having a big glass of milk, and a chocolate bar, I’ve not a very sweet tooth usually, but can’t get enough chocolate recently, though I do make sure I don’t eat too much chocolate, otherwise it wont be a baby that makes me fat!
Some of the other things I’m baffled by that I seem to have an aversion to are baked beans – which I’ve always loved, just the thought makes me feel a bit eugh. Tea, cups of tea, I used to have about 6 cups of tea a day, and I haven’t touched it for weeks. It makes me feel really sick, which is really strange for me. Cheese is another one, I would usually want some really strong flavoured cheese, crumbly and lovely, or a really gooey cheese, which I know I can’t eat anyway, but I have no urge for it at all.
I’m sure the food urges will come and go, at this second I really just want a sausage roll, I’ve always loved sausage rolls, right from childhood, but what I really want is one from my local butcher/baker near my parents house! But I can’t have that cos it’s miles away!
