    managed to make myself sick

    so today i forgot about breakfast as me and the husband were messing about and stuff, I wasnt really hungry so i had a couple of apricots.
    was looking forward to dinner and cooked 8 streaky bacon, fried 2 eggs in bacon grease, some mushrooms and a carb treat- baked beans in reduced salt/sugar beans,
    A couple of mouthfuls of bacon and eggs no problem; a fork full of beans and within seconds I got a cold sweat and the shakes and had to throw up. My stomach felt like it was doing contortions.
    its passed now so I put the egg and bacon on a fresh plate and have eaten them fine,
    WTF is that about though.

    Not sure about labeling laws on your side of the pond, but over here, innocuous-sounding ingredients like this (even "natural flavors") can mean all kind of nefarious things.

    Sure, but probably not something that will make you vomit in seconds unless you have major adverse reactions to common food additives.

    "Modified Cornflour" or "Modified Cornstarch" means HFCS in the U.S.

    I used to love lentils and beans (home cooked, not tinned) pre primal, now the thought of eating them makes me feel queasy - Stacy from Paleo Parents has also said that she didn't realise how much she couldn't digest them, until she stopped eating them. Yours is a common response!

    I think you just nailed it. The thought...psychological aversion.
