claire, i remember my mil, who was a foodie even though the term wasn't invented for her time, became more fussy about her food all the while having more restrictions on her diet due to health problems. it's the worst of both worlds, really.
one thing i've found to be true, as explained by our cardiologist, is that your tastebuds or should i say overall sense of taste ages just like the rest of our body, so older folks can't taste things as well as they used to. often, food tastes bland until it's suddenly over-salted or over-spiced. it's like the range of flavors is diminished.
