O is for Organic Food

It's both a blessing and a curse to be a supertaster. I love being able to taste all the subtle flavors in my food... when that food is organic. Some people will try to tell you that there is no difference in the flavor of an organic and non-organic food. I beg to differ.

For example, non-organic sugar has a distinct metallic back-end. It's a cloying flavor that I can only describe as making my teeth scream. Organic sugar, on the other hand, tastes clean and smooth. It's a softer sweetness as well. It has a very light touch on the tongue.

Sugar alcohols feel cold on the tongue, and have that odd metallic flavor. Organic stevia is light like organic sugar, but also has a tendency to be a little bitter. That's just a comparison of sweeteners! Don't even get me started on milk!

Any food that can be made non-organically can be made organically. I do make a few exceptions. Some foods really don't need to be organic, and some holiday recipes just do not turn out correctly with organic ingredients. So, I do make exceptions. I also make exceptions when I go out to eat at a restaurant. I mean, I'm not insane. I just like to eat what tastes good to me, and I figure it's probably healthier as well. It's also better for the soil and environment. Below, is some yummy organic chili with organic chips.

Here are a few tweets about #organic food:
