Roasted Eggplant

Taste fatigue occurs when you eat the same thing time and again. Cooking the same recipes and gravitating to familiar foods in the store causes this rut to happen. The more familiar the food, the better in some cases. It is hard to get outside of your comfort zone in the store. How is one supposed to know the look, feel, and smell of a good vegetable to choose? So instead of branching out, we stick to what we know.

When choices are limited for an extended period, those choices become less desirable. The less desirable the foods, the more fatigued you feel when eating them. It is a viscous cycle. So today, tomorrow, this weekend, whenever….I want you to try something new. You can start with Roasted Eggplant. Roasted eggplant is a wonderful way to avoid taste fatigue and change up your veggies!
