Say Nanners, and I Will Cut You.

Like most people, as I get older, my taste and preferences change. I like things I used to hate and vice versa. It's most notable in the foods I eat. When I was little, nothing was ever too sweet. Now I can't handle that much sugar at once. In my twenties, I thought the spicier the better. Now I can no longer take that much heat. Come to think of it...maybe at my old age, bland means better. Haha. No!!

Well, recently, I developed love for a food that I absolutely disliked even until last year. Bananas. I know! Was I insane? Bananas are so delicious, but they used to make me want to vomit. Now I have to have bananas at my house at all times. Yum.

Here are some others food items that I now love:

Water - I know, weird. But I used to hate the taste of water. I didn't grow up with water bottles, ya know. I only drank soda and juice. So water was disgusting to me. Now I can't live without it.

Diet soda - For the longest time, I refused to drink diet soda. If I was going to drink soda, I wanted real sugar damnit. Yet another one of my weird aversions. Now I prefer diet because you get the great taste without the guilt.

Yogurt - I thought yogurt was yucky. I didn't like the texture and the sourness. But now, yogurt is great and good for me. Yay for yogurt.

Avocados - I can't tell you how much I love avocados and quacamole now. But it wasn't always the case. I thought they tasted weird. But now I have opened my eyes!

Beer - For the longest time, I couldn't drink beer. Yes, I was one of those. But during law school, when I didn't have much money, I had to go cheap and buy beer. Now I can drink a whole mess of beer without gagging. I still prefer wine and cocktails. But now I can proudly say that I drink beer, baby!

Vanilla ice cream - I never used to eat plain vanilla ice cream because it was booorrring! But now I appreciate the classic-ness of vanilla. It's good stuff.

Okay, so this list is further evidence that I was a big big weirdo. Keyword is "was." Am I right? Right? No? No. What foods do you love now but used to absolutely hate because it made you want to vomit? Tell me!

P.S. I hate when people say nanners instead of bananas. I don't know why. Maybe it's the way people say it. I don't know. Anyway, Huz totally said nanners the other day, and I tried to make him stop. But he won't!!

Funny, but I always had a weird relationship with water, yogurt and certain ice creams even.

Firstly I'd like to mention that I have ALWAYS hated kiwis and spicy foods.

I've come to hate any type of pop. I only like flat drinks.

I used to hate lasagna and now I love it.

I used to hate veggies/mushrooms on my pizza but now I love it.

I love shrimp, after I tried fried shrimps.

Ahh there's too many! It would take ages to think of everything.

I like your list. I was sitting there thinking of my own list and probably could have kept going. You don't like soda??? That's a good thing, I guess. I think I like soda now more than I ever did before...especially cola. Hmmm...good stuff.

Mhmmmh, I used to love spinach now I can't get it down my throat however hard I try.

Also, I used to hate sparkly water intensely but now I'm addicted to it.

I like spicy stuff but used to always feel like my mouth was on fire. I still do sometimes, but it tastes good. :)

Hahaha, can't think of any more right now.

Love, Malou.

Loved bananas forever. Then, one day in my 20s, the smell of them made me want to throw up. I would hunt down banana peels in waste baskets at work and throw them out in the break room.
Then, I got pregnant, and since then, I like bananas again. So weird.
I don't like "nanners" either.

Gram crackers. I don't know why but I love the crunchy-ness of them! I bought a whole box just for snacking!

I recently found out how much I love avocados too! Mmmmmmm, guacamole!
