How To Eat Healthy and Still Enjoy What You Eat

How To Eat Healthy and Still Enjoy What You Eat 

 One of the biggest complaints from recent dieters is how much they dislike the taste of their meals. Diets are usually based on a set ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fats with varying rules such as no simple carbohydrates like white bread or avoid trans-fats like fried food. While diets don’t always prioritize taste, healthy food is, in fact, quite tasty.

 Why good for you doesn’t taste good to you

Much of our taste is corrupted by sugar and processed foods. With the growth of fast food, frozen dinners, and sugary treats, we’ve become accustomed to a specific palette. Whether we go out to eat at a nice restaurant or indulge in some food on the go, our taste buds are regularly assaulted by salt, sugar, and unhealthy fats. We’ve developed a habit of eating these foods, and anything devoid in these primary flavorings tends to taste bland or dry.

 Which foods are healthy

The term ‘healthy’ is widely debated and often considered subjective. That said, there are some basic guidelines for healthy foods. Fresh, natural fruits and vegetables from the produce section are filled with vitamins and nutrients, and some items are considered superfoods for their additional benefits. Ancient grains and complex carbohydrates give your body energy that breaks down over time, and healthy fats like avocado and olive oil help maintain your limbs and joints.

 How to make healthy food, tasty food

By cutting out or lessening processed and sugary products, you will begin to reboot your taste buds. This process is sometimes called a detox, but in essence, you’re just allowing your system to deplete itself of less healthy remnants. You also generate new taste buds within days, so your cravings are really more in your head than your body. Like most things, time heals all.
