Not only do we evolve physically & mentally as we age, our taste buds change & develop plus we look at how food can enhance us. Sometimes change is enforced on us and we take time to adjust but ultimately, we come to a solution that works.
What & when I eat has really changed through the years…definitely didn’t enjoy olives as a kid, however, they probably weren’t readily available in the 70s although a big fan nowadays! I used to enjoy milk chocolate & a biscuit more than I do now. I really do enjoy wine, a large slice of cake etc but not very often.
Always been into sport and had a healthy appetite but the options were very simplified. Now it's all about taking time to satisfy my love of food but giving me nutritional balance so I can continue to run as I age (50-54 age range at parkrun), with no intention of slowing down just yet!

Food wise a big change for me was being diagnosed with Coeliac 9 years ago. The first year was awful…feeling like I was missing out but now I do not shy away from going out and enjoying food. I am not saying that there are no compromises along the way.
I always check a menu or speak to a restaurant beforehand
Still regularly get offered vegan options when not everything vegan is gluten free
Still have a drink without eating as I lack confidence in cross-contamination
A crumb can make me feel very poorly for days…and create damage internally
Life is getting easier but there is still a long way to go with allergies. Whether you do or don’t have allergies, our diet is our everyday medicine that keeps us all ticking.
