Serious Eats: Talk
I eat ____ because it's good for me (but I don't really like it)
Okay, when you were a kid, you had little choice about what was on the menu, so you ate whatever balanced or unbalanced meals were presented to you. And you probably ate things that, given a choice, would not be your preference.
But now, as an adult, you get to make the call. Most of us here are the ones who do much, if not all, of the shopping for and preparation of the food we eat.
So...are there any foods that you eat just because they're good for you? Is salad on the menu because you need those greens? Do you choose whole grains over others even though your taste buds are begging otherwise?
Do you cook and/or eat any foods just because they're healthy, or because they're the healthier alternative to what you really want to eat?
