There’s no way around it, if you want to be healthier you’ve got to eat healthier. From fruits and veggies to granola cereals and organic meats, there are tons of healthy options to eat…if you want to eat them that is. As healthy as some foods might be you still couldn’t get me to touch them with a 10 foot pole. I don’t care about the weight loss or cancer fighting properties, there are just certain healthy foods that are not for me. For example I can not, will not, never ever ever in my long legged life eat tofu. I’ve had people try to jazz it up, sneak it in a dish…nothing works. My tongue senses its presence and all bets are immediately off, I just don’t like the taste. Cauliflower is another food on my no-no list and I definitely gag every time I see someone blend a celery, carrots, spinach, beets and apple mix.
I know these foods are beyond good for me and definitely better than other things I eat daily, but despite the benefits I just can’t wrap my mind around eating them. Does that mean I’m not serious about my health? No. But eating healthy shouldn’t make me gag, so I’ll drink a protein shake or a strawberry banana smoothie, but that huge cup of wheatgrass…nah, I’ll pass.
