Cindy: Life’s A Flavorful Adventure

Now that you’ve had your fill of succulent roast turkey, savory stuffing and pumpkin pie, it’s time to focus on the food ahead. The Christmas season stretches before us, rich with the tasty promise of candy canes and cutout cookies washed down with gallons of eggnog. I hesitate to address the F-word (food) in this column because when I last wrote about a related topic (Pig Out in the Park) a Spokesman.com commenter speculated about the status of my muffin top. And I don’t think he was talking about my homemade blueberry muffins. But an article I read recently in Ladies Home Journal caused me to reflect on the gift of properly functioning taste buds. The 53-year-old author wrote that she only eats four foods: bread, French fries, potato chips and milk. She said she’s never tasted a fruit or a vegetable (unless you count wine)/Cindy Hval, SR Front Porch. More here.

Question: Do you eat your fruits and vegetables? Is there something you simply won't eat?
