growing up i was not often given curry for dinner because my taste buds were weak. i was so extremely weak that up until 5 years ago i had trouble with cracked pepper. clearly i was not a very strong child or teen, i am slightly ashamed.
since my weakened taste buds were … weakening my street cred – i made changes.
pepper here, sriracha there, chili in this, sambal oelek on that. my forehead sweated, my nose ran & my eyes watered. i kept adding heat into my food on occasion until one day … my face wasn’t a total mess as a result of my weak taste buds. only took me a year!
i am not about to try eating a full chili again but i have developed a love for things spicy.
