I just have to ask this one.
I've gotten a lot of my taste back. Egg nog actually tastes GOOD. Chocolate, not so much. I'm crazy on vegetarian soups. Fresh fruit is good, most sweets are not.
But the one that kills me is beef. I have tried several variations of beef dishes, soups, etc., and I've noticed that anything with beef has a very strong false salty flavor. That is, it tastes sort've of salty (very) but I can still somehow tell that its not really salt that I'm tasting.
And I've had my wife confirm that there is no real salt taste. Even low salt dishes with beef taste salty, sometimes so strongly that I can't even eat whatever it is.
What on earth IS that? Why do I have this new taste that I never had before? And why is it so icky.
I can eat chicken in some forms, but I'm mostly considering going vegetarian because of this saltiness thing (fish still makes me nauseous).
Anyone else have something odd like this? I have my share of things that don't taste "right", but this weird false saltiness is really strange.
