wow, that would suck not eating chocolate.

hmmm, i thought about the 7 or 8 year thing, and it hasn't seemed to happen to me. i don't think i've ever stopped liking a type of food or dish. in fact, every few years i make another personal discovery of another type of food i love. there's been sushi, thai, german, brasillian, carribbean; every few years i run across something new (to me), and it just adds another page to my love of food.

Don't think my tastes have changed very much since I was 16 or so.

Except for eggs.

As a tadpole, my mom would give me a hard boiled egg every morning.

Would gag down the yolk, and could never deal with the white.

I guess she finally realized I could not stand the stuff and stopped cooking them (by the way, she was a fantastic mom, just think she believed an egg a day was good for a kid).

Shunned any egg dish for years.

Then on a fishing trip I was given fried eggs, and WOW, an epiphany.

Now will eat eggs any way except boiled, I still cannot stand those suckers.

As I get older however, I find I like spicy food more.

We go through tons of hot sauce here.

My DH ( 74) eats very little now..doesn't care if he eats or not. Doc says his electrolytes are off and his sodium is low (taken off salt..?..) Until they straighten him out he will have a loss of appetite. It is hard to try to get him to eat and then I eat foods I shouldn't have being a diabetic..trying to put weight back on him ( he is down to 127 from his normal 160) I gain a few and he still looses..Taint fair! I stay hungry all the time ( normal for a diabetic) and he won't eat.

Also as you age (can't believe I said that) you are not as active so you can get by on less food. At least that is what they say...... :?
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

I'm not 60 yet, but I have noticed that as i've gotten older the foods I eat have a more direct line to making me feel a certain way. What a complicated way to say something that is really simple!

If I eat sugar it makes me feel really strange. If i eat too much fat ditto.

i have to eat plenty of veggies or I don't feel right.

This from somebody with a so called iron constitution.

My two glasses of wine each evening are important to me, but try not to go over.

I still love all kinds of foods and I am over 60. Still love to cook, drink wine, and eat just about anything with few exceptions. The things I don't care for, I've never cared for. Hope this doesn't change anytime soon. Good food is such a pleasure. :)
