You'll have the palate of a foodie
If it's hard for you to enjoy a stinky blue cheese or a crisp IPA, that might be because your palate isn't accustomed to the intense flavors in those foods, says the Chobani culinary team. If you start to introduce those flavors into your meals, though, your palate can actually be trained to enjoy them.
"Everyone grows up eating different foods: some more adventurous, varied diets to more simplistic flavors," Briere says. "By exposing your palate to new and different flavors, you will be more likely to enjoy bolder tastes. As people train their palate by continuing to taste these stronger flavors, they become more likely to like that flavor."
Eating healthy? You still should mix and match
Even if you’re the healthiest eater who spends Sundays meal prepping salads for work week lunches, you still need to change up your meals. That’s because consuming the same thing every day, even if it’s a healthy superfood, can put you at risk for not getting all the nutrients you need. That’s why the Dietary Guidelines for Americans advises to eat a variety of nutrient-packed foods everyday. Besides that, over-consuming some foods can put you at risk for certain food hazards. For example, some fish, like bigeye tuna, can naturally contain high levels of mercury. Because of that, the FDA suggests women (particularly those between 16-49), pregnant women, and children should pass on fish that are high in mercury and instead eat a variety of fish with low mercury levels two or three times a week, like salmon or tilapia. That way, you'll get lots of omega-3s (plus make tasty meals).
