My father always said that there are two ways to live.  You can live to eat or you can eat to live.  Food is an important part of our family traditions so we all tend to lean on the “live to eat” side, as do many others.  I have tasted many different flavors, combinations, and textures and have learned that, if prepared well, anything can be good.  Despite the variety of tastes available to us, there are two flavors that are craved the most among humans: salty and sweet.

While we here at TasteBUds might be a little obsessed with cupcakes and all things deep-fried, every once in a while we like to look around and see what the healthier half of the foodie kingdom is up to. We’ve all seen our fair share of popular diets and cleanses, each one eventually fading into obscurity. However, over the past few years two dietary movements have been embraced  with unprecedented gusto and are gaining traction with the general public.
