Change is difficult
Tuesday, July 29, 2014
I'd like to think that I have an open mind and that I'm open to change however that doesn't seem to be the case when changing eating habits. The positive thing if you can call it that is that my taste buds have changed or the food(s) that I used to enjoy has been altered or the recipe changed. One or both may have happened since I've been overseas.
I've only aged 3 months so getting older shouldn't be the issue here. Bread for instance, pretzel bites, and I wonder what else tastes different now. It's good because when I've eaten the items I wondered why I was still eating them, why I had liked eating it in the past, & how easy it will be to stop eating it in the future.
Buttered popcorn & cheese still tastes the same so why should other items change?
My body & my cravings haven't changed even though the taste of those things has. What is a good way to facilitate changing my cravings to healthier foods?
I missed white peaches but they aren't in season anymore. I really do miss the tropical fruit of SE Asia. I wonder if chocolate, brownies, cheesecake, or donuts still taste the same to me...
I wonder if I should bother tasting any of it since they don't have any nutritional value at all. Do I dare chance relearning how to relove junk food?
