Yesterday I was cutting up a watermelon for my son and while doing so, I though back to being a kid and how I used to put salt on my watermelon.

Today that sounds horrible to me.

I wondered if other people have a similar situation - - something you ate without problem at a younger age but that you wouldn't do today. My guess is that many will have examples in terms of trying to be healthier. I have no problem with that (I drank Kool Aid and soda as a kid but don't anymore), but I'm really interested in people whose tastes have just changed. Beyond the watermelon one for me: ketchup on scrambled eggs. *shudder*

I will post later when I think of something food-wise that has changed. (and btw, still love salt on watermelon and ketchup on my scrambled eggs ---yum!)

I knew that would be the response from some people - - I'm interested to see situations where I will be saying the same to others!

Besides the things I have cut out for health reasons, like eating whole containers of Ben & Jerry's, I'd say there is only thing that's really changed with my food preferences over the years. Our family use to eat authentic spinach pie (spanakopita) and I HATED the inside. So in protest, I'd only eat the flaky crust and drink water. Now, years later I love the whole thing, filling and all

The only thing that I used to eat that I'll never eat again, is baby food...

You sure about that? I heard it comes back into style the older we get.

Cereal. It's pointless. Haven't eaten it in four or five years.

I do still eat oatmeal, though.

Lunch/dinner consisting of bacon cheeseburger, large fries, and a milkshake. Fortunately, there is still space in my arteries for blood to circulate.
