Good bland/flavorless foods?
« on: September 29, 2006, 01:57:02 pm »

for noseclipping, that is.

I tried a Slim Fast shake, but the flavor was pretty strong.
I seem to be a super-taster.

You tasted it through the noseclips?! Are you sure?

Sometimes, I used to think I tasted stuff, because I knew what was in it and what it should taste like. Then one day, I'm drinking my smoothie thinking, "mmmm, banana" when I realized -- I hadn't put banana in that day! I was reacting to cold, thick, smooth and fooling myself.

Yup, I'm pretty good. It was sweet and vanilla.

I need some bland options.

Most people try to put protein in their smoothies, as well as some sort of fibre to fill them up. Good ideas for protein are protein powders, skimmed milk, cottage cheese, raw eggs, soya milk..... actually, you could put any sort of meat in there if you wanted. I know it's a bit 'orrible, but it's not as though you're going to taste it, is it?
Most of us find that a few spoonfuls of psyllium husks, or other kinds of fibre, or anything that swells up inside you and makes you feel full also helps. Porridge oats are a good-un.
There has also been some specualtion that anything which has antioxidant properties will help. Lots of spices do this: nutmag, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger. There are more but you'd have to do a search. These also make the taste crazier, in case you accidentally get a whiff.

Good luck!

I think I'm looking more at something off the shelf. That I could eat at work, for instance.

I take small containers of cottage cheese--very bland and high in protein--one small container (80 cals) often does it for me for lunch--

another bland lunch I frequently have:  two string cheese sticks: 9 gms of protein each and 60 cals each--so 18 grms protein and 120 cals is a decent bland lunch
