Going Back to My Roots

I enjoy all types of cuisines, but after eating one type for while, that food can get boring!

For example, when we traveled to Italy this summer, our family slowly got tired of Italian food. It tasted delicious for our first few meals, but after a while, the creaminess of the Italian dishes overwhelmed us and our taste buds longed for Chinese food. Why?  Well, Chinese food is the exact opposite of Italian food, which has lots of rich flavors.  When you’re craving something plain and simple, Chinese soups and dumpings are perfect.  When my family finally ate Chinese food at home, it tasted so satisfying that it put a huge smile on my face!

This also happened to us when we visited San Diego. Every supper was either Italian or American food. My grandparents traveled with us and I could tell that they were getting a little tired of eating Italian and American food. The last day, we ate dim sum and I could tell by my grandparent’s facial expressions that they were relieved.

I am sure there are other examples of my family’s problem and not just with Chinese and Italian food. So, be aware of the foods you eat.  One last question: Have you ever eaten a food that gets overwhelming after a while? If yes, do you have a food that you eat to balance it out?

      I don’t think gatorade can balance out red bean paste very well!

    Great blog, Nate! For me, all similar good gets old quickly if I have it over and over, so I always try to diversify what I cook at home and what I eat when I go out. I’m not sure I have an answer to your final question, but it’s one I will ponder this week!
