Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

Is healthy eating boring?

What's boring is being stuck in a hospital bed because you've had a heart attack from eating too much junk food... it's important to take a long term view of things

 

Besides it doesn't have to be boring! You can always combine naughty stuff and healthy stuff - putting some chocolate chips in a trail mix of nuts, putting some extra soy sauce on your stir fried veggies etc. Smiley Very Happy

3. Is healthy eating boring?

So, the thing is, I actually kind of prefer bland food over taste explosions. In my experience, a lot of healthy food has always just been too full of unfamiliar flavour for me, or it's simply flavours and textures that I don't like.
I think there's a time where I would have said it was boring, but I think that's because I didn't really think about it.

It can sometimes be boring! If I am rushed or tired then trying to make a healthy meal can be a huuuuuge pain. However, I actually really enjoy cooking so when I have time to actually plan a meal out then I find it fun Smiley Happy I enjoy tweaking recipes to include more veggies/ingredients that I like. I often cook big batches of things too so when I am in a lazy mood I can just heat it up.

I agree with @missep, I don't think healthy eating is boring either. There are plenty of creative and fun ways of going about making healthy foods

Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

Like for example I really like lasagne, to make it a healthy version I use brown pasta sheets and add tons of veggies to it Smiley Happy

@May_ I've noticed that when we buy something together, like say a block of chocolate, I feel like I have to have as much as he's having or have a good amount. So we end up finishing up the block of chocolate because we both wanted to eat as much of it as we could together.
Very much an unwise move on my part.

Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

@MissX making meals in bulk is an awesome strategy! (I also find it helpful Smiley Happy)

Nooope! Over time I've learnt a lot about cooking and flavours and what I like. I used to think I hated so many ingredients (helloo mushrooms) but now that I cook a lot I have discovered how to make meals in a way that works really well for me. I have gradually added more and more ingredients into the repertoire of things I really like and know how to use in a meal. I love making huge veggie curries, rice dishes and pasta sauces that are really flavoursome Smiley Very Happy
