Just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean that it doesn’t taste good. In fact there are a lot of things that I use to like that just doesn’t taste good to me anymore. Obviously this isn’t always the case. There are actually a lot of things that can be made in a different way. And I’m not the type of person who is going to sacrifice taste. For example I spent $20 on a couple of loaves of a Paleo bread, because I cut bread out of my diet. After the third bite of the Paleo bread, I realized that I wasn’t going to eat something that tasted like crap because I liked what I was replacing. I tossed both loaves out and learned a lesson.
The other night I decided to make chicken fingers. This time I really liked the taste.
