Taste buds. They can be friend or foe. They are quick to tell me if there is something I don’t like. But they are also just as quick to tell me when there is something I do like. And I am just not sure which message is the better of the two.
If it is something I don’t like, I won’t be so tempted to eat too much of it. But if it is something I do like, well, even if it is something healthy, it is hard to stop. This thought came to my mind today when I was eating some veggies that I had roasted. It was potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, green pepper and carrots tossed with olive oil and spices. All very healthy. But it was just so good that I found it hard to stop with just one helping. I finally fixed a bowl of SF jello with SF cool whip and thereby removed the ‘yummy’ from my taste buds.
Do you ever have this problem??
