I came home from work last weekend and my brother in law was here with Chinese chock full o' meat. I gagged as I walked into the house. My husband was nice enough to clean in up and air out the house while I was upstairs.

Trippy Seafood and ground beef smell terrible when they're cooking. Well, seafood still does when it's finished.

vegancheez i was on a residential school trip, we were eating someplace and i was about to puke from the chicken smell, so i ran and hid out in the bathrooom with two other veggies. the teachers called us back and said we were overreacting etc. then when our vegetarian option arrived (a plate with a bit of cucumber on) it tasted of chicken, there were lumps of flesh on the plate, and it had blatantly been chopped on the same board as the meat, with the same knife. i refused to eat it, as did the other veggies, and we all earned after school detentions for when we got back for "being too picky" =_= and my english teacher wonders why i havent done homework for her for six months *shakes head in disgust*

azusapriss Never liked the smell of sea food or fish. The smell of uncooked white or red meat disgusts me. I don't even find the smell of cooked meat pleasant either, I used to though.
I normally get my hubby to cook any meat he wants outside on the barbie, the other day the gas was finished while cooking himself lamb chops, and he had to finish cooking them inside, it was oooo so disgusting, the house was left with that horrible smell. Hopefully it won't happen again.

Mandyy Seafood, yes. Other meats actually smell good to me still but I could never eat it. Just like this past weekend my mom's boyfriend grilled steak and even though it smelled good, my stomach turned. Hard to explain.

Kelii36 My husband dragged me into a butcher shop once and I almost puked.

Back-Space The smell of meat doesn't phase me much, but I can't stand bacon. Sunday morning the landlords cook it upstairs and the smell gets pushed through the vents into my apartment. And the smell of bacon when you wake up with an empty stomach is horrible. Gotta spend the next 20 minutes eating just to fight the craving.

StaceySGMW Everytime I go shopping with my Mum, she insists on buying Lamb/Steak from the meat aisles, I can't bear the smell of it, it makes me gag, I'll offer to go do her fruit/veg shopping whilst she's picking it up.

ecl23 I was food shopping today at my local supermarket and you have to pass through the "dead animals" aisle before getting to the other groceries. As I was passing by, the smell and just the look of all these poor animals made me SICK! It was just gross. Good thing MorningStar was on sale-- I was happy again.

Bacon in particular makes me want to vomit. I used to date a guy whose roommate made SO MUCH BACON. It would seep into my boyfriend's bedroom and linger for hours. D:

mlp I've been vegetarion for over twenty years, and the smell of meat being cooked has only been unpleasant to me when it's being boiled, but that was the case even before I went vegetarian.
03-25-2011 10:13 AM
Rad14 I've been a vegetarian for 28 years this year, and the smell of cooking meats and seafood has never bothered me. Wherever and whenever I've smelt it.
03-25-2011 10:04 AM
heatherann1220 Ugh yes. I can't stand the smell of meat either. Long story short, I got suckered into going to a BBQ place a couple months ago and I walked in and it just reeked of pig meat. It was so disgusting. Thankfully, I got desensitized to it by the time we got our table and I could eat my portabello burger in peace.

I Heart Corey Haim!! I will be veggie for 22 years this year and even before that it grossed me out beyond words because I have always loathed meat and hardly ate it....sometimes its better but usually the smell of meats and seafood makes me wanna be sick.....

Peace

ashlend I thought I was going to hurl smelling my husband's ham and egg omelette when we were out for breakfast yesterday. Even as an omnivore, I hated the smell of overcooked scrambled eggs, and now...

For some reason, the smell of meat alone doesn't bother me as much, even though it probably should. I guess I'm so used to smelling it in restaurants etc. that I'm just not really bothered by it.

Lil Misfit I've been veggie for 31 days now and the smell of cooking flesh is really grossing me out. I was driving past a restaurant yesterday that was grilling me and I almost In fact, just thinking about the smell now is making me nauseous. I am surprised at how quickly this happened.
12-14-2010 06:14 PM
fadeaway1289 I had to walk past a Five Guys Burger joint the other day ..omg the stench was horrendous.Usually I can tolerate the smell of fast food places but this place stunk of rotting flesh.
12-14-2010 05:34 PM
Happy_Soul oh definitely, especially if passing a place like Mcdonalds or KFC. i just get the shivers. Though it's actually the grease that gets me, i could practically smell and taste the stuff. i was never a fast foods gal, it all just looked so unhealthy, even if the meat was home-cooked. Made it all the easier to cut it out.

Bront I've never particularly liked the smell of meat or fish, but I can tolerate it if necessary.

The idea of preparing meat now however does seriously irk me, I don't even like to touch the stuff. Weird, because I used to prepare it all the time lol

AHHH! I can't stand the smell of bacon because it seeps into EVERYTHING. I hate it when my family cooks bacon because then I spend the rest of the day reeking of it. Sometimes they make it in the microwave but even then that sucks because the microwave ends up smelling of it and anything I make in there afterwards still has the lingering bacon scent.
