I'm eating things that I wouldn't usually and although I forced them down in the first month or two, I now find myself really enjoying them!! Cucumber for example - I hated it and couldn't eat anything it touched yet now I quite enjoy it. Another one is almonds and cashew nuts - I used to hate nuts yet I'm suddenly devouring cashews when I can get them fitted in to my daily menu.
Is it normal for our taste buds to change once we're in adulthood? I'm in my 30s and I've never been a fussy eater

They change. And as you get older, their sensitivity deadens, which is why little kids are thought of as so picky, it's just because they have very sensitive taste buds and can eat fewer things than adults can.

Yes, it's normal. After 17 or so, one's taste buds are able to think something is too sweet, before then, they are not.
Having a different diet may change your Pilate. For example, I have heard before that people who went on a sugar-free diet could taste sweetness in foods that are not traditionally sweet, such as carrots.
