People tell me all the time “healthy food tastes bad.” Honestly, I can’t disagree with them because I once thought the same thing.
I was reminded of my disdain for healthy food last week when a reader commented on a site I freelance for saying the recipe was horrible and how she was trying to lose weight and from Texas and it wasn’t in any way shape or form good or like the food in Texas. Now in fairness to the reader, the title of the recipe may have been misleading but the editors name the recipes so I don’t control that.
What I do have control over are the recipes I post. I 100% do not post recipes I don’t like here or on any of my freelance sites. If a recipe’s no good, I tell the editors I need to tweak it. I also eat all my recipes. In fact, the recipe this reader was referring to was something I remade last weekend because I loved it so much. I’ve made my fair share of ugly and disgusting recipes, and this was not one of them.
Her comment reminded me of that time in my life when healthy food tasted really bad. Okay, so it tasted horrible. You couldn’t pay me to eat vegetables. Kale what?
