What food offends your vegan nostrils the most??

There's so many things for me

Bacon and eggs smell really makes me sick.


I thinks it's perhaps part of reason people can eventually be at no risk of returning to meat. After a while (maybe several years, but I'm sure it varies) of being meat free, meat really has the smell of things that are to meant to be how how shall I say...flushed

To be honest,after being an omni for 45 years and a veg*n for over 25 years, nothing really offends my nostrils. The smell and taste didn't offend me then and they don't offend me now.

I know the reasons well enough for keeping me on "the straight and narrow" and I don't see much risk of me returning to meat.

Boiled meat, and eggs (scrambled and omelette).

Summertime back-yard BBQs is about the only smell that manages to intrude into my space.

I'm bothered by steakhouses- where you get the smell of actual flesh. Mostly things are seasoned, and I still love the smell of Popeyes. KFC always yuck, but Popeyes always smelled good.
Bacon smell is horrid, but coconut bacon even more so.
So many foods smells bother me.

How did I forget KFC (or fried chicken)? I hated the smell of fried chicken even when I still used to eat meat.

ANY smell of animal flesh and/or their bodily secretions cooking bothers me, but not because I fear I may wish to ever consume them again, because that won't happen, voluntarily.

It reminds me that there are still folks who feel it's okay to repeatedly and forcibly impregnate female species of any kind and then steal their babies away to do the same to them, or take and kill them for meat if they're males.

It reminds me there are still folks who think it's okay to slit the throat of another being while often calling it "humane" to do so simply to satisfy long-learned taste bud addictions that are NOT a requirement to survive.

The smell of synthetic food-like substances also gets pretty offensive and unbearable for long, even the vegan options, synthetic stank of anything, not just food, can take me down.

Keeping it real and avoiding the rest as much as possible is the kindest thing I can do for my body, overall. It's repeatedly made it quite clear it doesn't recognize or healthily process and/or eliminate the rest.

The smell of burgers frying, specifically from a greasy spoon type of restaurant. It makes me feel downright greasy as well as somewhat nauseous. The folks next door to an apartment I used to rent made shrimp pretty often, and that's a strong distinctive smell that annoys me, but it doesn't make me feel sick and like I'm covered in congealed fat like burgers on a flattop do.

For some reason half-cooked steak or hamburger is especially nauseating to me. It isn't so bad when it's fully cooked but something about the in between process makes me sick.

Chicken, especially KFC and the store bought chickens really bugs me, the KFC before I knew what vegan was or meant...something about those particular herbs and spices just offends my olfactory senses. The last store bought chicken my parents got smelled like urine... Also any pork products. The last time my parents got BBQ pork, it smelled like feces (I hope I can say this in here). I'm serious, I was checking the bottom of my shoes for...well, you all are smart... I think you know what I mean.

I'm not strictly vegan, but I find that the smell of seafood makes my stomach turn.

My family owns a deli how do you think I feel :/. Raw red meat in general makes me feel a bit sick.

And omg they get the whole pig carcass and cut it in half with the giant circular saw, atomized raw meat particles in the air oh no.

Sorry if this was too graphic lol.

The smell of In-N-Out Burger makes me mildly nauseous. There is a greasy stench in the air surrounding their restaurants.

It reminds me of summers working at the county fair. The air was filled with grease from all the deep fryers on the grounds and at the end of the day my clothes and skin would would be coated with a thin layer of it.

Melted butter seems to be it for me. Recently went to a movie theater to watch the Black Panther captioned and a friend brought a huge bucket of buttered popcorn. I just could not ignore it for quite a while. I think he moved it away from me to the other side so I appreciated that. I'm roommates with 2 non-vegans (one want to be vegan but she's also dealing with gluten sensitivity so it's difficult for her) so I'm rather used to the smell of meats, I just try to cook my dinner at a different time whenever possible.

Backyard barbecue. I know it's a fond smell for many, even as a memory for some vegans and vegetarians, but I think crematory when I smell it and block my nose.
