How to make healthy food taste good?

ok I have a problem where I like to eat a lot of junk food and I dont like a lot of the healthy foods what can I do to eat healthy and still make the food taste good?

Answer #1

“I don’t like healthy foods” is as sweeping a statement as “I don’t like television” and makes as much sense. If someone suggests that they can’t find a single piece of programming on all 1,500 channels that they like, you have a legal obligation to hit them in the face with a shoe and demand that they stop being a stuck-up douchebag. By the same token, when you say “I don’t like healthy foods,” I have a God-given right to gently suggest that you’ve put as much thought into your situation as a garden slug puts into thinking about crawling forward.

You’re trying to say that there isn’t one single recipe that isn’t covered in chocolate or deep-fried that you don’t like? Learn to friggin’ cook and stop getting your meals from plastic containers.

And stop snacking, for eff’s sake. You know why the populations of Europe and Asia aren’t tremendous tubs of lard? In between meals, THEY PUT DOWN THE FORK.

Being a teacher and around a lot of kids all the time, I’ve figured out how to make kids like healthy stuff. :) They will eat broccoli, carrots and other vegetables if they have a tiny bit of ranch dressing to dip it in. They don’t have to have a lot, but it makes it more fun, tastier to some people, and you still get the benefit of the vegetable. :)

Answer #3

You can’t really make the food taste a lot better. Everything good for you to eat doesn’t always taste yummy. Do you feel guilty after eating junk food? If you do, remember that feeling. Was is really worth it? Eat that apple, or banana, or something healthy for that matter. You’ll feel better about yourself. I don’t know if it works for you, but for me it works. I just remember bad I felt.(wasn’t related to junk food). Hope this works for you haha.
