Bubba, I think that ANY positive thoughts coming my way are always welcome. From any creed or culture, it is always their best wishes. I appreciate it greatly :) I feel sad that you would have to ask that. I understand it. But it does make me sad.

I don't get an opportunity to eat one food at a time anymore. My dear mother, bless her, just creates these meals which throw all this random crap into one monster of a food item.

You, or anybody else will never have to ask that of me. And, I send my own good wishes back. I don't know what to call it.

Although raised in a Protestant household, my parents never took us to a church that had any hellfire and brimstone. We were taken to churches where there was actual dialogue.

But, when asked to describe my spiritual beliefs, it's always said to be more Buddhist or something similar.

At least a carnivorous Buddhist...LOL

Well, just about can't avoid veggies or fruit. But, I do avoid them at all chances possible.

Yeah...I think that I am at that point too health wise. But making that change is proving to be very difficult. Between bad appetite or processing issues, I just have a difficult time with food right now. It has to be the thing I am craving. It's either a textural craving or a specific taste/texture craving. Veggies and fruits aren't in that mix.

I have no idea what I would want if given that opportunity. For some reason, my food desires are getting to be more limited and more specific. I don't know what's happening.

My sense of smell sucks. Has for many years. Too much of a bad boy in the nineties coupled with lifelong sinus troubles. But, I prefer subtle flavors. I had some chocolate the other day and it about killed me how sweet it was.

So, that makes no sense because smell and taste are coupled. I have no sense of smell, but a strong sense of taste. I usually slightly salty and savory. I can't even eat sweet and sour anymore because it's too strong for me. And, I loves me some sweet and sour. American style and Authentic.

But I just can't deal with the strength of flavors sometimes. And, I basically never feel hungry. For the most part, even pot doesn't give me the munchies. And, that makes NO sense whatsoever.

I've always eaten one thing at a time. I also systemize the order of the things I eat, like vegetables first and carbs last. I don't mind if most things touch now, but I hate sweet things touching anything else. It's gross and I don't like sweet foods that much, they ruin other things they touch.

Yeah I always leave till last the part i like to eat the most. and usually if i take longer to eat would indicate how much i like the food. except people used to get frustrated at me cause ive always eaten slowly
