Everyone wants to know how to make healthy food taste like the unhealthy food.
Today I want to propose a new idea to you.
How can we make the unhealthy food taste bad to us and the healthy stuff taste delicious without trying to make it taste exactly like it's evil twin!?
To further explain my point - We THINK those fast food fries taste oh so good but let me challenge you to stop eating them for a while. I can all but guarantee the next time you eat them you'll feel an icky greasy feeling on your lips and a sickening feeling in your stomach.
If you're not eating any healthy food, you won't necessarily love it right away.
If you stop eating greasy food for an extended period of time, it just doesn't seem as appealing after a while.
The more you treat your body to vitamin and antioxidant enriched foods, the more your body will crave those foods.
The more you eat whole grains/whole wheat, the more normal it'll taste to you.
Instead of saying "this healthy cookie just isn't as good as the full fat, butter and sugar laden cookie", keep making those healthy cookies for your dessert. Eventually your mind will begin to receive those cookies as dessert. Here's the difference: if you make a cookie recipe like the one I posted last Saturday, you'll be putting antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and fruits into your body instead of saturated artery clogging fats and refined sugars.
We need to train our bodies to accept the good stuff and stop trying to make the good stuff taste like bad stuff! Get it??
