Tip #1 for the Houston Single: Cut the Flavor Blasts
According to an online webmd.com article1, our bodies crave flavor and often get high doses of it in nearby fast food restaurants. Fats, sugars and salt all make our bodies happy so of course fast food is popular. Houston singles are no exception and enjoy fast food as well. However, every Houston single should be aware that fast food can often saturate our senses until we cannot appreciate the flavorful subtleties of healthier selections. In order to overcome this saturation of the palate, the webmd.com article suggests leaving refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and sucrose behind forever, and cutting back on salt and using salt substitutes like yeast extracts, Parmesan cheese or soy sauce. The article also says that In a week to a month, tops, [after cutting back on salt] your old level of saltiness will taste terrible to you.
This change of desire for high levels of salt, sugar or fats is the sign of a burgeoning sophisticated palate. For instance, once a Houston single can actually say that he is disgusted by the candy bar aisle because the sugars and fats are simply too overwhelming, he will know that his palate is a sophisticated one.
Tip #2 for the Houston Single: Make Eating at Home Exotic
Healthful, flavorful foods do exist but they aren’t as popular as fast food, so a Houston single will have to search out those ingredients that his palate and body will really enjoy. A BLT with some fennel sauteed in olive oil might absolutely blow your taste buds away to a personal tasteful Nirvana and will also help you to maintain a trim figure. So, what about a gourmet macaroni and cheese with mascarpone and a walnut dusting or a sauteed cauliflower and parmesan selection? Believe it or not, once you get the hang of it, these meals can be made quickly. However, it will take some research and a bit of time to get the hang of the healthy food combinations that your body really craves. Plus, you will probably end up dating a similarly sophisticated palate since palates that are alike seem to seek each other out.
