Sugar Kills Taste

I don’t drink much soda in the summer, and every time I get over being used to it, I notice a big change in my taste buds: vegetables taste better.

I think sugar must dull the sensitivity of our tongues, and I just looked up some medical info that confirms it.  What a world of variety we close ourselves off to when we bludgeon our palate with manufactured sweetness!

I write this in the hopes that it will help me stay off sugar, and keep enjoying the juices of nature, like the tomato from my garden that I had this morning, which after two months without overindulgence in sugar, tasted better than most candy ever could.
