I read several “Healthy Living” blogs. I’ve detected a staple among them.
Well, four staples.
I don’t like any of those. And I don’t mean I just don’t eat them. I mean I’ve tried them all several times and I DO. NOT. LIKE. THEM. I cannot eat them without being a bit disgusted by the taste.
There is nothing I’ve found that makes oatmeal taste good. I don’t know how people eat it as a healthy food without pouring sugar on it. If I try to make it healthy, it just tastes yucky.
I’ve tried bananas on and off since childhood. But each and every time, I’ve found that I don’t like them. It doesn’t matter at what stage of ripeness they are in. They do not taste good. The kicker is, I love banana smell, I love banana bread, I love banana nut muffins, I love banana “flavored” candies. I just don’t like the real thing. They do not taste like they smell. If they did, I’d love them too.
I’m not a big fan of syrup. I think it is because of the smell. I don’t mind the taste, but the smell makes me sick. So I didn’t have big hopes for honey but I tried it anyway. GROSS! It does not taste good. It is almost too sweet. And coming from someone with a major sweet tooth, that is saying a lot.
Oh, yogurt…I have a love/hate relationship with you. I love the kind that is really not good for you, like the whipped versions in chocolate flavors. I hate the kind that has the fruit mixed in because I cannot stand the chunks in the smoothness. YUCK! Basically it is a texture thing with yogurt. I can eat it, but I don’t enjoy it. I have to force myself to get it down. I’d rather just not deal with it.
There has to be a healthy way to sweeten things sans honey.
There has to be an alternative to the banana as the healthy fruit of choice.
There has to be a way to make oatmeal taste good and be healthy without sugar and without honey.
There has to be a good alternative to yogurt…and I will eat cottage cheese but I’ve eaten it so much that I have made myself sick of it right now.
What are your favorite healthy foods? (I can’t promise I’ll like those either.)
