    Default Food Aversion & cooking shows during pregnancy

    So I have a thing for watching Secret Meat business ( a cooking show about meat) not only for tips and tricks but also Chef Adrian is cute & a bit of a red head. I finally got a chance to watch the new season only to realise... My aversion to meat during the pregnancy is going to make this Impossible!

    I watched him make one cut in the meat and had to change channels.

    Has anyone else had to stop watching favorite cooking shows whilst pregnant?

    I can't even watch adds for food without feeling sick! Last time everytime I KFC add would come on the tv I had to change channels, so I haven't been brave enough this time to watch a whole show about food! I did see the add for secret meat business though and it looks good!

    Yes!! Early on I hated watching masterchef even though it was one if my favourite shows! Especially if raw meat was stacked up for a challenge on the tv!! Gross!!!

    So glad I am not the only one who has to change channels. Thankfully Hugh (river cottage) Is doing a Vegetable show this season.

    LOL! I thought this was just me!

    I love cooking shows, hugh being one of my favs too! But I am struggling not with the shows, but some of the recipes. I am just not enjoying them as much as I was because other than spring rolls nothing is appealing at the moment!

    Anytime i watched a cooking show or TV i had to shut my eyes if they used avocado..... It was the only thing that i felt sick just looking at. It even extended to the supermarket!

    ive only just started eating it again and sometimes i still feel sick thinking about it.

    I've had to stop eating thanks to my MS (cheeseburgers are the only thing I can stomach or keep down) but I don't mind cooking shows although I do only watch baking ones like Cake Boss etc ..
