Suddenly Liking and Disliking Certain Foods

Shiitake mushrooms with stems removed. The stems are too woody to eat.

I have most of my life liked the white button mushrooms, so it was a complete shock to my family when I suddenly stopped eating them. It came all of a sudden, and I can’t really explain it.  DH who loves all types of mushrooms of course wanted to add them to everything. I was constantly forced to pick them out or off of everything from pizza to hot sandwiches. This lasted for about 10 years. I avoided mushrooms like the plague, which is odd, when I suddenly flip-flopped and began eating mushrooms again. Only then and now I eat numerous varieties of mushrooms. My favorites are Crimini, shiitake, both baby and mature Portabellas. Onions are another food that I disliked from childhood until the moment I tried my first Vadalia sweet onion. From then on it is the one food item that I will go out in a blizzard to buy. I always have them in the house and I usually have at least three of them at all times. Yet another food that I once liked and suddenly detest is bananas and anything made with bananas.
