I think green beans taste sweet,as do onions. Most vegetables, fruit, cheese etc has sugar in it. You just can't taste it, because your body has been overloaded with tons of it. Same as salt. I don't salt my food. I use black pepper, and garlic powder. Many foods have a lot of salt naturally, especially meats. Finding foods without salt or sugar is harder than finding real, fresh food.
I start by looking at the ingredients list. If it has 1 ingredient.. that is awesome..lol. Even better if it doesn't have an ingredients list. If it does, read the sodium, or sugar quantity X # of servings. Check all the brands. You will be amazed at the variances.
I tend to eat meat, vegetables,eggs, oil, and butter, and 1 fruit a day. The fruit is nature's dessert. You can also eat a lot more fresh vegetables. No reason not to have 10-12 servings.
If you have a favorite packaged food, look at the ingredients, and ask yourself if you can make it by combining the separate items that are on the list, minus the scientific terms. The packaging and preservatives are there so they can stay on a shelf for 6-8 weeks and not spoil. You probably don't need it to last for more than a week, so no need for those things.
In 2-3 weeks, you will begin to actually taste the food you eat.
