Taste buds... hopefully we all have them and use them accordingly. Sadly, if you are eating what is referred to as the Standard American Diet (SAD) then chances are your poor taste buds are under attack every single day!
Additives to “enhance” flavor, preservatives to “protect” texture, and a multitude of other chemical processes to keep food products on the shelves longer and make them seemingly more palatable. I can’t help but refer to this as taste bud terrorism.
Just say “NO” to Tastebud Terrorism!
I imagine poor little gustatory cells everywhere are quaking in their proverbial boots every time you reach for a packaged food item or place an order off the random fast food menu.
