While some people claim to be able to pinpoint even the slightest variations in food, others see pretty much everything out there as bland. If you find yourself in that category, you are probably always searching for a way to liven up your meal. After all, plain old food is just that- plain!
It’s not that it can’t fill you up, but rather that there’s just not enough enjoyment out of eating the food. Bland food is unappealing to some people because it isn’t distinctive enough. That’s why many of us are always in search of a way to spice up the food, with extra seasoning or with a dose of the hot stuff. Research suggests that even thousands of years ago people were looking to add flavor to their food. Distinctions were sometimes made by where people lived and how they lived, but taste certainly differed from person to person and it still does. Your taste may even change as you age, but for many of us, plain food simply isn’t enough.
Luckily there are all kinds of products out there to curb the bland flavoring of certain foods. Whether you choose pasta or potatoes, veggies or rice, there’s no reason why any food has to taste bland these days. Sure, spicy peppers may have originated in certain parts of the world, but these days it’s possible to quench your thirst for hot sauce just about anywhere you go. Whether you grab your favorite mini bottle of hot sauce while on the go or you sit down to a home-cooked meal, peppered with your favorite hot sauce blend, there are plenty of choices out there. You can also add in an extract or reach for a pepper puree. All, of course, are excellent ways to spice up plain old food and make it your own.
