Hey! It tastes like shitcken!

Why does everything "good" for you mostly taste like shitcken?

I bought some pomegegranate juice which is supposed to cure every thing on earth and christalmighty nothing tastes quite so.... er.... brackish?.... awful?..... horrid?....

And tofu. Don't get me started. I know, I know "It's delicious!" (if you spend 900 hours soaking it in something tasty).

And blahthisgrain and blahthatgrain.

Seriously:

Other than raw or cooked fruits and vegetables is there anything "healthy" that actually tastes like food?

Would Julia Child eat it?

If not, I don't want to hear about it.

I think "oranges" fall into the tasty raw or cooked fruit and vegetable depatment.

But thank you!

Okay. I just went to check my "The Way to Cook" Cookbook and Julia, who live to be like 209 or something, suggests you FRY you hamburgers in BUTTER.

I think the reason for obesity is not that we eat hamburgers fried in butter but that we eat 100 pounds of tasteless health food without getting satisfied.

Debate.

I'm eating oranges right now, so I can't help.



Don't start me on the evils of soy/tofu and American agribusiness.

mm, but the pomegranate juice - you know you don't drink it straight. right?

it needs another juice to make it good - or ginger ale - pom juice with ginger ale is yummy and good for your tummy

Chicken soup! chicken soup is good for you and tastes good!

and everyone knows burgers fried in butter are the best. mrs. hamburger's older sister once prepared them that way for me when I visited them in Germany - truly the tastiest - and somehow not as greasy as most North American burgers - maybe better beef to begin with?

hehe. She's sneaky isn't she, Osso?

I just had to post here to BM.

Until Seth was 5 or 6, he would taste new foods enthusiastically and announce "MMM! Tastes like chicken!" Didn't matter if it was a vegetable, fruit or whatever.

Thanks for the reminder and smile.
