I think there's a difference between young and old people's tastebuds, and I think I'm developing that of an old person's.
I distinctively remember loathing vegetables when I was growing up, particularly slimey ones like eggplant and okra.
Traditional Chinese herbal soups were always a chore to drink, even though they're supposedly "good for me".
And I loved carbonated drinks...
Fast forward to 2009.
I feel funny when there are no vegetables in my meal, not simply because I'm vegetarian now.
I have not had okra in a while, but I have no qualms eating eggplant. Particularly when it's nicely roasted. Yuuuuum.
I actually willingly make herbal drinks for myself (and poor D) because of the belief that they're "good for me".
Carbonated drinks...well, I still drink them, but not to the extent that I used to.
Those are the few examples that I can think of now, but I'm sure there are plenty of other stuff that I used to hate that for some strange reason I loved eating now.
What about you?
Have you developed an old person's tongue?
