This is Part two of the anosmia series. Anosmia is when an individual cannot smell. The following is an outline of different foods and the textures they offer. This segment will be regularly updated, as this is a new adventure. Ideas for me to try would be greatly appreciated so I can find new combinations of foods that give me more than one of four tastes along with texture and, on occasion, sensation.
Casseroles, salads,chunky ice creams and soups have several different textures as there are several whole foods in them. The issue is that with most manufactured foods, whether premade or mixes (like stuffings or cakes) that there is only one texture versus eating whole foods that still have their natural textures.
Chips, chocolate shell, ice cream cone, foods deep-fried in batter,nuts, cookies (unless fresh), pomegranate seeds, chocolate chips, chilled ganache
Caramel topping, nut butters. warm ganache
Alfredo Sauce, Ice cream, flan, pudding, smoothie, creme brulee, melted chocolate, ganache, chocolate sauce
Cake, pancakes, waffles, quick bread (like banana bread)
More than one texture:
Pomegranates (crunch and then gush juice), kumquats (you bite through the thick skin and then they gush juice)
Pomegranate seeds, kumquats
