I have always had a sweet tooth.
There is evidence that sugar is addictive and I absolutely believe it. I have had many favorites over the years; I still love a sherbet after dinner. Licorice (red and black) have always been a favorite too.
But my tastes are changing as I grow older. I can only stand so much sugar and then I am done. It becomes too sweet and almost sickening to me now if I have too much sugar.
Instead I am growing more fond of savory/spicy foods. I think this has changed now that I have been more exposed to foods from different countries. Indian food with it's curry and all of it's other spices has become a favorite cuisine for me.
I think that this could be from trying to eat better and healthier. Once you slow down and savor your food and not eat too fast your body gets used to it. Fast food really is not good for you in more ways then one.
Has any one's tastes changed like mine?
Which do y'all prefer, sweet or savory?
