Not uncommon: Depending on the food you ate, it's not uncommon that urine odor would reflect this. Your body has to process food into breakdown products so you can let go of the waste through urine and feces. If you've ever eaten asparagus, you would know urine can smell like asparagus. Make sure you drink plenty of fresh water and this aroma should dissipate.

Why does normal urine smells like nutty?

See my remaks: As a Urologist who has had the occasion to smell urine more than a thousand times, I hven't smelled a nutty on. But what is the urine? It is the byproduct of what we eat and drink. If you eat a lot of garlic, the urine MAY have a garlic odor. Some people may have a discernible sense of smell, hence can notice /pick-up any variation in color of smell of urine. Nothing to worry about

Urine or vaginal?: Strong smelling urine usually isn't abnormal, generally due to eating strongly flavored foods. If so, it should improve with diet change and drinking lots of fluids. If it still continues, you might have a urinary tract infection. Also, are you sure the odor isn't vaginal? If so, you could have bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. See your doctor if symptoms continue. Good luck!

Likely UTI: Symptoms of a urinary tract infection can include urinating more frequently than usual, burning/pain with urination, and foul smelling urine. If severe, there can be fever or even back pain as the infection travels upwards towards the kidneys. A primary care physician can diagnose and treat a urinary tract infection properly. If not infection, other less likely possibilities exist.
