Just a few months ago I wrote about coconut water saying it tastes like bum. Someone said I was way too harsh but it really tasted so totally vile that it made me shiver every time I tried it.
Since taking up Bikram yoga I have been drinking coconut water mixed with fruit juice after my weekly class and a miracle has happened – coconut water tastes totally fine to me now! In fact I buy ginormous bottles of the plain variety and drink it on a daily basis!
I am totally puzzled. I even let my mother have a taste the other day and when she ran to the sink to spit it out I knew that it isn’t the coconut water that’s changed – it’s my freaking taste buds that have changed.
Is this possible? I’ve never experienced this with any other food. The closest I’ve come to involves olives – for years I was opposed to their taste but this year I can eat them.
Is this old age? Is this what happens – you start tolerating things that taste totally weird? :)
Has this happened to anyone else? Does coconut water totally mess with your head too? Or any other food?
