The Importance of Satisfying Flavor

SatTo be honest, I’m getting rather sick of the sameness of flavor of many of my favorite cold preventing hot teas and soups. I’m sure their physical properties will still work fine to fend off common cold viruses with Warm & Steamy goodness….but without satisfying flavor, it will NOT if I don’t actually eat and drink them.

For some mysterious reason, humans have taste buds that give us very powerful feedback from the foods we eat, and, there is a huge psychological relationship we have with foods we partake that gives us great satisfaction, or dissatisfaction with our lives.

I don’t completely understand that (who does?) but I recognized good flavor when I taste it (who doesn’t?!).

Some of us have more highly refined palates than others, to be sure, but all of us have foods we love, hate, and find satsifying (the first and 3d of those three not necessarily being the same.)

So after years of somewhat unsuccessful experimentation to find the right kind of foods that are as strictly healthy as possible, I have grown to realize the importance of satisfying flavor in our diets is SUCH an important aspect of the success of a diet strategy.

Which is why my 2nd Pillar of health includes the description of “satisfying” as an important criteria for the best kind of diet we need to have for our good health.

Fortunately, there is a world of flavor out there waiting for us to discover.

Yes, I know Kale is all the rage these days, but not everyone likes eating it. Let’s face it– some foods are just more satisfying than others.

I’m the kind of person who likes trying new things, and like to eat as healthy as possible. But after many years of trying to eat various “super-healthy” diets, I realized recently that I couldn’t stay with because, well, frankly they didn’t TASTE good. So I finally realized the high importance of making sure the food you eat has exciting flavor that satisfies your taste buds and your soul.

If I eat a super mathematically nutritious balanced meal, but somehow the chocolate chip cookies in the cupboard are still calling to me,then the diet was not satisfying, was it? Hmmmmm?

Therefore, there is something missing…flavor!

And, although I have a stack of various teas given to me as friendship gifts from my Chinese, Japanese and Korean friends. Well, I know they are good for me, but just don’t drink as much of them,probably due to the notion that their flavor is not going to be satisfying to me.

So I was eager to explore on my visit to Japan and Korea what other kinds of teas and soups they have. And, my joy of discovery will be elucidated in my next post.

Pinkies extended — get ready to hear about a great cup of tea!

For your flavorful health!
