Straight up isn't an option
I hate yogurt. I mean for real. Most of it is actual distaste for the product and some of it is psychological. When my mom was hardcore dieting in the 80's, she would eat yogurt for breakfast and the smell of it made me dry heave. So when I smell yogurt or sour cream, which I obviously also hate, I smell deprivation and self loathing.
The Mr, however, is a yogurt fiend. He'll eat it straight up but mostly in a smoothie some mornings.
He has the poo pipes of a champ...almost every day like clockwork. Me? I can go 3 days especially after the weekend with no success. If they'd let me do that whole poop transplant thing, I'd be down. Purify it, pill form it and hand me a glass of water. So I figured that maybe the reason he has good pipes is because he eats yogurt a few times a week. In a moment of desperation, I picked some up.
I went with the Greek because that's what the Mr gets (but strawberry) and I thought honey would be a mild taste. Well, I ripped the lid off and that tangy, pungent smell smacked my sniffer. I almost tossed it in the trash. I gave myself a pep talk and said to just eat half of it, it'd still be 7 grams of protein, just force it down. So I readied my half of the tub and grabbed my water bottle.
The smell was so bad, I added some pumpkin pie spice to try to flavor it more. It didn't help much. Each small bite was accompanied by a huge swig and swish of water to get the taste out of my mouth.
I got about this far before the retching started.
It took me 10 full minutes, one moment bent over the sink praying for the strength to just nad up and do it but I finally did it.
I will never do it again.
At least not like that because straight up isn't an option for me. I will try a smoothie later this week after the trauma wears off and see how that goes.
What food makes you retch? Is there a food you eat that you don't like but it's good for you so you choke it down anyway?
