Taste Buds!

Thursday, August 23, 2012

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??

    Oh yeah, I've had this problem! I've had to stop buying Better N'Peanut Butter, because I was liking it too much and too often!
