Sugar

Most of us have favorable emotions attached to the sweet taste bud. Sweet foods remind us of love and comfort or grandma and her homemade desserts. Unfortunately, our food industry has capitalized on these emotions in their marketing as well as discovered the financial gain possible through the sale of sweetened foods. Our sweet taste bud has been so incredibly over-stimulated that we hardly recognize or enjoy the other four taste buds that include salty, bitter, sour and savory. Enjoying the foods recommended for life by TWIHW can be best accomplished by getting to know your other taste buds a little bit better. Exploring new foods requires trying different preparations of the same food on multiple occasions and eating slowly with intention to “taste” and “experience” the smell, texture, flavor and overall food experience.
