Where does this myth stem from?
This post is mostly visual and would actually become very lengthy if I shared all of the images I have of delicious, healthy food!
But don’t worry, I’ll restrain myself to just my favourites.
I think the “healthy food is boring” idea stems from the misconception that if food looks and tastes great it must be “naughty” or can’t be good for us.
We also tend to think that healthy food is very plain & boring, and so, lacks flavour. So why bother if it’s not going to taste good?
It can be confusing, I get it!
We’ve been presented with a lot of misleading information over the last few decades. First we were led to believe that all fat is bad for us, which ironically led to food manufacturers replacing fat with sugar in a lot of processed foods.
Now there’s a war on sugar! The media hype will have believe that sugar is evil and must be avoided at all costs. I believe in moderation, rather than completely cutting out food groups, or individual ingredients.
I’m not surprised when I hear people say that they’re confused and they don’t know what to believe. It can seem like there are conflicting reports, and new claims every other week.
I get it! It makes you think what the heck, I’m just gonna eat what I like because it can’t really be that bad for me.
Well, my friend, unfortunately it’s not that simple. We live in an age where you can’t believe everything you read.
The images I’m sharing below are foods that I eat. Some I eat regularly, some occasionally. But I enjoy them all as part of a healthy diet.
So have a scroll through and see if you can work out which is which!
