Birth Defected Muffin

my muffin has a birth defect!

don't laugh...

Sugar-Free Spelt Chocolate Chip Muffin Raspberry  from Cascadia Bakery

is it a whale? a rhino? a hippo?

maybe the lack of sugar in it's diet was the cause ;)

Lunch was much more normal...

Leftover potatoes mashed with mayo, green onion, radishes and pepper

After finishing my second coat of painting on my
 bedroom walls, I worked up a fishy craving...

Wild Salmon Salad Wrap from Planet Organic

Seafood is one of those foods I never thought i'd end up
 growing to love and find my self saying, "MmMm FISH"

Question: What are some foods that you previously
disliked but now can't seem to get enough of?

Any other ex-fish or ex-cilantro haters out there?

Cute birth defected muffin :-D. I've always loved seafood, always will - yummers! I used to hate tomato soup, but lately I've been loving it. Hope the painting is going well.

I just laughed out loud when you said "birth defected muffin", hehehe. I looooooove Cilantro and fish! Esp salmon, so basically I'm drooling over your wrap :)

Have a great Thursday!

Wow it has a SERIOUS defect :P
I used to dislike most vegetables - But now I can't get enough of them!

Crystal said... [reply]

That muffin is muffin-art. The abstract kind. So beautiful. :) haha.

I used to hate tomatoes, but I love them now! I also used to hate sweet potatoes but now they are one of my favorite foods.

hey beautiful chica!!
the muffin looks delicious...nothing wrong with crazy shapes and sizes! I want the recipe for this bad boy! hehehe!
I hate fish...:( I wish I didn't! I used to tell people when I was younger that I can't Eat my fellow swimmers!! :)
I've recently falling in LOVE mushrooms, like seriously they could replace the guy I'm dating and I wouldn't mind! ;)
I heart you girlie!

Averie @ Averie Cooks said... [reply]

odd shaped foods just mean it was homemade w/ love :)

i never liked stevia! until about 18 mos ago. now, i would die if i couldnt have it!!

Nina said... [reply]

Poor muffin. But inner beauty is what matters right? :)

I used to hate mustard, milk, cauliflower, brocoli and everything green, sweets (how strange!), garlic, cream soups...there is a long list. I used to love meat. Now Ive been a vegetarian for about 6-7 years, I love chocolate and all the other things I mentioned I used to hate! Im wondering if there are some more massive changes coming to my kitchen.

I hope you will post some more pictures of your room after everything is done! <3

Sarah @ Gluten-free tries Vegan said... [reply]

You need to stop featuring delicious (even the defected ones) muffins on here because it's making me crazy with cravings! I haven't found any gluten-free, dairy-free ones over here that aren't full of preservatives and have been sitting on a shelf for months! There better be some when we're in the States :)

Oh, and I love the colour of your room. My bedroom used to be that colour- love it. xxx

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

Hehe, love your mutated muffin!

I used to dislike avocados and guacamole, but now I eat them at least once a day! Mmmm green goodness!

Your salmon wrap looks heavenly. I ate tuna salad for lunch today and it was tasty, but would have been better if it was wrapped in a yummy tortilla like yours!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Your muffins always look too good, even the crazy ones!!!

Hmmmmm, used to hate honey and peanut butter, now I love them both!

Always loved mushrooms, but just started eating them raw - now I can't get enough. So good!!!!

Tatianna said... [reply]

I don't know about celantro... but I am a total ex-fish hater :P I LOVE salmon and shrimp now, but I used to turn my nose up at them both! That wrap looks so delicious.. I am jealous :)

Poor muffin - I hope he doesn't get teased.

I used to hate avocados.... and ketchup! That is crazy because I douse EVERYTHING in ketchup!

Simply Life said... [reply]

As a kid i didn't think I liked mushrooms and now I enjoy all types of them!

Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said... [reply]

Cantaloup...I thought it was disgusting as a kid, now I eat one in two days and that is only because I pace myself!

Your muffins are killing me! Now I have to make more because my last batch is already gone...in 24 hours we ate 13 muffins!

Anonymous said... [reply]

haha...that muffin! it looks like a scone on a muffin body almost :P definitely very alien-esque.
That potato salad and fish wrap looks great, too! I used to hate all things fishy, as well -- but now I don't mind salmond, shrimp, or scallops (though haven't had any in ages.) I also used to hate pretty much all veggies. We know that's changed! haha.

Amy B @ Second City Randomness said... [reply]

Ha ha- looks like the muffin got a little overexcited and tried to escape the muffin pan...

I used to hate avocado. It grossed me out. And asparagus. Now I can't get enough... :)

I love when muffins come out strange like that - as long as the muffin top is sizeable, it doesn't matter (cause that's the best part). Your muffin looks like a whale to me.

Even as an adult, I wasn't fond of Swiss chard, but I recently made up a recipe that worked really well - sauteed with garlic, chickpeas, and raisins - so more chard is on my grocery list this week.

Heather (Where's the Beach) said... [reply]

LOL - that poor muffin. Let's see, I used to think I hated beets (had never really even tried them) and I realize I like them. I hated bananas growing up and now I crave them. Oh, and kale, was afraid of it until I finally made soup with it after our neighbors gave us some they didn't want (they don't like it, I'll gladly take it now). Hope you're having a great week sweetie!

ahh, that salmon wrap looks so frickin´good, I wanna lick my screen! I guess I might have a lack of omega 3s?? I used to hate avocado, but for a about three weeks I was craving them, until I finally gave in last weekend. I´m still not too sure about them, but a spoonful can´t hurt ;)

xoxo Mel

LOL that muffin!? mmm i love salmon, in fact i have some packed for my lunch today as well!

Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin said... [reply]

I never thought I would like tofu, kale, black beans, or fish - many staples in my diet now! Weird to think about.

Best muffin pic ever!!!
I did not like Greek Yogurt for a long time, and now LOVE it!

Anonymous said... [reply]

I think the muffin is adorable, it has elephantitas or something :) Made with love, just like other commenters have said!

I didn't like beets for a long time, until my sister made them for me -- it is all about the preparation!

Danielle (Runs on Green) said... [reply]

haha I *think* they over-filled the muffin tin just a little :)

ugh me and cilantro have neverrrr gotten along lol. But I used to hate avocado and now I love it! I try and re-taste things every few years or so because your taste buds change...but yeah celery has been a no-go my entire life!

Jessica@ tastyandtrim said... [reply]

As long as the muffin tasted good then it makes up for its silly shape ;) I used to hate fish and I have really grown to love it. I also have come to enjoy brussel sprouts and asparagus, two foods that I would run from in the past!

eatmovelove said... [reply]

I like "defects" - makes it interesting...and usually more to eat ;)

Christina said... [reply]

i love seafood! i've always liked it though. i used to dislike banana pepper and jalapenos but now i love them!

Missy said... [reply]

Take a closer look at the third pic down...

There are two strategically placed chocolate chips above a smear of red.......do you see it? It's your muffin's face!

That's a face ANYBODY can love.

I love seafood now, but wouldn't touch it when I was little and much less in my decade + stretch as a vegetarian. Now it makes my heart sing.

How's your room coming along?

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter said... [reply]

I was thinking about how I used to hate honey. This summer I've been putting more and more of it on my toast every day. I also used to hate mustard. 3 or 4 summers ago I did the same thing: I decreased my mayonnaise and upped my mustard on my sandwiches. Mayonnaise gone, lots of mustard!

Anonymous said... [reply]

I don't know why but if there's a weirdly shaped food, I love it. I always search for the funny shaped chips and this muffin would definitely have been my choice!!!

I used to hate mushrooms when I was little but now I love them!!

Unknown said... [reply]

looks are TOTALLY not everything ;)

looks imperfectly delicious

have a great day lovely lady

Kristen (swanky dietitian) said... [reply]

That is definitely a strange looking muffin. I am sure it tasted delicious though!
I was not the biggest mushroom fan but after trying them in different dishes, found out i love them!!

TheHealthyApron said... [reply]

I used to turn my nose up to seafood but around 16 I changed and started to CRAVE it! Now i love it! That salmon wrap looks AMAZING!

Laury@TheFitnessDish said... [reply]

haha...the birth defected muffin looks better than regular muffins...the top is my fav part, and it looks like you got extra!!!!!


Anonymous said... [reply]

Ok I didn't promise I wouldn't laugh ;p lol seriously so funny! I love how you described it too!!! That leftover potatoes look like a yummy potato salad! I haven't had one all summer--I just realized this! Shame on me hehehe

-raises hand- I use to be a cilantro hater! But not anymooore.


p.s. sending my energy your way!!! Cloud nine has lots of room :)

erica said... [reply]

hahaha you are hilarious! Your poor muffin! Hope it was good! That wrap looks awesome too! Making me hunger :)

Monet said... [reply]

I grew up hating fish...I was served some amazing platters of seafood that I repeatedly turned down. Sometime in my late teens, I changed my mind, and now I love fish and will likely be eating it tonight!

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said... [reply]

I used to haaaate bananas and seafood and now I love both! I eat a banana most every day and seafood is my top pick when dining out :).

Anonymous said... [reply]

I want those potatoes! They look so good!

I don't know if this counts, but I used to hate wine and now I can't get enough of it. :)

Eden said... [reply]

I've seen (and sadly, baked) worse. I once got a scone that resembled algae cause it was a "green tea" scone. Never get baked green pastries! As a kid a never cared for yogurt, now I go through a few cartons a day!

Kacy said... [reply]

I used to hate fish and now I like some of it - not a fan of salmon though. I like cilantro in small doses.

Chelsea said... [reply]

I'm surprised your blog title doesn't have something to do with muffins, considering how much you love them! That is a cute, albeit deformed, muffin! :D

Hmm I hated seafood until my mid-teens, and now I love it!

Anonymous said... [reply]

I actually hated peanut butter and chocolate together. Now I never eat peanut butter without rolling it in some unsweetened chocolate!

Kayla said... [reply]

I used to HATE all the foods I eat almost everyday now: yogurt, salad, oatmeal, cottage cheese...I didn't like any of it! But now I love the stuff!

Oh and, Poor mutilated muffin! haha, still tasty though, i bet!

Angela (the diet book junkie) said... [reply]

dude, the deformed muffins are always the best kind!

lol....sorry, i still can't handle cilantro. i used to dislike tomatoes and carrots when i was a kid, but now i love 'em . especially carrots on my Subway sandwich. the combination with sweet chili sauce (yes, they have that here) is SOOO good.

Gina; The Candid RD said... [reply]

That wrap actually looks REALLY tasty! The muffin definitely looks funky, but still delicious. Poor little guy.

There are a ton of foods I didn't like when I was younger, but like now (in fact I have a post coming up where I asked my readers the same question), such as crunchy peanut butter, artichokes, and yogurt!

Anonymous said... [reply]

The only vegetable I ate as a child was cucumber. Turns out my mom cooked the death out of most fresh vegetables, which is why I hated them.

The first time I tasted fresh cooked asparagus I was amazed! So now baby spinach, asparagus, spaghetti squash are staples!

Ellen@FirednFabulous said... [reply]

Awww poor muffin! Still looks tasty though :) And that salmon wrap looks DELISH! Mmm. I used to HATE the texture of oatmeal, but now I can't get enough!

Megan D said... [reply]

I love the hippo muffin! Haha and salmon is so delish... still can't stomach cilantro though!

Alex @ I Eat Asphalt said... [reply]

I bet that muffin tasted mighty good, even if it looked a bit funny. :)

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

Previously hated (but now loved foods):

- Fish
- Olives
- Shrimp

I have always loved cilantro!

Joanne said... [reply]

That muffin really did have a birth defect. I think it should have that checked out.

I am an ex-fish hater! Now I can't get enough of it!

Emily said... [reply]

aw poor muffin! I've always loved fish, but I had a strong hatred for sour cream..but now I can't get enough of it :)


sophia said... [reply]

I hate perfect muffins. I like them deformed, bc usually that means more odd-shaped muffin tops for me, and we all know that is the best part. I used to hate broccoli. Now it's my fave!

brandi said... [reply]

That muffin does look funny, but I'd still eat it :)

Justine said... [reply]

Aww! A muffin that only it's 'mother' could love. :)

I know that I used to HATE tomatoes and guacamole when I was a kid and now I can't get enough of them! I don't think i ever really had a problem with fish and my parents never made anything with cilantro, but both are now refrigerator staples for me! As well as tomatoes and avocadoes :)

We Are Not Martha said... [reply]

I definitely laughed out loud before you told us not to when I saw that muffin :)

I used to hate fish and now I love it!! I also used to hate cilantro. I don't LOVE it now, but I definitely eat it. I love that I've grown up!


hbobier said... [reply]

I literally laughed out loud at the title of this post. Awesome.

And I used to hate cucumbers when I was a kid (okay, I hated them until 4 months ago) but this summer I can't eat enough!! Aah to be an adult... :)

Anonymous said... [reply]

Ex-cilantro all the way!

Krista said... [reply]

What a funny looking muffin!! And salmon is great.

Candice @ ChiaSeedMe said... [reply]

Hey! Just stumbled onto your blog - the name is so cute:)

The muffin does look sad - but still delicious!

I used to hate bell peppers, which now I honestly cannot believe.

I used to have avocados (or is it "es"?) and guac but now love it!
