Learn to Love the Veggies You Hate

What you'll need: A hole punch, a oneinchsquare piece of waxed paper, blue food coloring, and a cotton swab.

What to do: Punch a hole in the waxed paper; set it aside. Dab a little blue food coloring on your tongue. It should turn blue, with the exception of tiny pink circles. (These are "fungiform papillae," and each contains six to 15 taste buds.) Place the waxed paper over the blue area of your tongue and count the pink circles in the hole that you punched out. More than 25 circles? You're a supertaster.
