I remember when I first started the BFC and eating healthy, a lot of stuff I was told to eat that was good for me, well I just didn't like it very much.
I remember tasting the 85-86% dark chocolate the first time. I never really was a dark chocolate fan. Just the fattening milk chocolate stuff for me, and Ooh yeah - with peanut butter or caramel inside of course.
The first time I bit i n it - I was like... Ummm - OK? Took another bite and still Uh - I don't know - weird. But because I paid for it and didn't want to throw it away, I kept trying a square every night and as each night passed - it tasted less and less Uhhh to me.
Now I love it, especially since I know milk chocolate is out of the question - FOR EVER!!
When I started to use coconut oil, I tried it to fry my eggs and in recipes. I was not a fan of it in the frying pan with the eggs. The taste was so different than the crap oil I had always used. But now I can't imagine eating eggs without using my coconut oil spray in the pan first.
Any time I make sweets, I am reminded by my Hubby that my taste buds are so different than him or everyone else. He rarely eats my sweets. He likes stuff MUCH sweeter then I do now. I guess he is not a sweet freak like me. But I remember before he was - so maybe its just the full-on stuff he likes and not my healthy ones.
I remember the first stevia brand I bought at Sprouts when I started this was SweetLeaf packets. I did not like them and thought it tasted like the pink packet. The I found Truvia which does taste more like sugar and used that for quite a while until I saw this online special about different stevia brands and how Truvia is just full of CRAP and very little stevia at all. So I did my research and now my favorite brand is...
SweetLeaf. Funny huh?
SO what I'm trying to say is - Give Your Taste Buds a Chance

Keep on BFC ' n :-)
