With being sick most of the nine months, a lot of foods were avoided out of trial and error. One of those foods, was peanut butter. I used to eat peanut butter and bananas almost daily for a snack, but, learned the very hard way that Will did NOT like the peanut butter. I thought it was the bananas, but no, everything with peanut butter in it was not liked. Sad.
I figured this aversion would go away after he was born, since I had lots of aversions with Jack and Molly's pregnancies and most of those came back with ease
So, it's been four years that I've avoided anything with peanuts and peanut butter, until today. I made Jack's lunch for Cub Scout camp yesterday morning and all the sudden everything looked and smelled amazing. Was it the wonderful
|Preparing to make the best sandwich ever!|
|The first bite, yum!|
|If one could inhale food, I think I did here!|
***Update! It's been four hours since I ate that delicious sandwich and sadly, the happiness and yummy thoughts are gone because we're back to reality. While worth it, looks like peanut butter will only be a distant, far friend. Thanks for the memories peanut butter, I look forward to trying you again in another four years.
**Side note: I've been asked if I've tried other nut spreads or alternatives to peanut butter. I've tried almond butter and the exact same thing happened, but I can enjoy almonds in small doses! I think I'm going to try sunflower spread next? Any other suggestions?!
