Do We Eat for Taste or Texture?

I know what you’re thinking…I have totally gone off the rails on a crazy train! (Ozzy reference) But seriously, think about it for a second…for anyone who eats an average American diet, do they eat because things taste good (or they are fooled into thinking things actually taste good), or is it the texture of things? After doing Paleo for 2 solid months, I think it’s got a lot to do with texture of food. That’s one of the things that keeps me from not missing my old ways…and the food tasting better on Paleo is just a bonus. 🙂
While it’s not exactly pasta…spaghetti squash certainly does the job, same with cauliflower “rice”. I think it’s the texture that gives us most of the satisfaction, or maybe that’s just me!
I am just trying to figure out the perfect explanation as to why Paleo works for me. I love the meals, I love the challenge, and I love the discipline. I also love that the way I feel has completely changed from 3 months ago.

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
