I’m on steroids at the moment for a bad bout with arthritis. The thing that bugs me the most is that I absolutely have NO taste buds left. Everything tastes terrible. But add that to the fact that I’m ravenously hungry from the steroids, and it gets worse.
I need good, tasty, non-spicy foods that might break through this yucky taste in my mouth. I’m disappointed because my best friend and I are heading out to see Sutton Foster in “Me and My Girl” in Pittsburgh this weekend, AND we’re going to the Melting Pot for the first time ever (she’s been, I haven’t), and now I’m afraid I won’t be able to taste anything. I’ll be done with the steroids by Friday, but the lack of taste will stick around for awhile.
So, what can I eat? Anyone have any good, strongly-flavored foods I can try? I’d like to hit the grocery store tonight. The nice thing is, I’m hungry but I hate eating, so I might actually lose a little weight on these things, but I like food too much to NOT eat, if that makes sense.
And I’m still very upset about possibly having a bad Melting Pot experience. So anything you can suggest that I eat there would be helpful, too.
