When it comes to eating healthy, it can be a constant struggle if you’re new or just getting started. Over the years of eating healthy, there have been some dishes that we just say no to, no matter how good they are for us. Whether it was a lack of flavor, or too much, there are many reasons to avoid healthy foods.
A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What's a healthy food you refuse to eat?” This thread sparked a lively debate about what healthy foods others wouldn’t eat no matter what. Here are the top responses.
One foodie shared: “Kale, that stuff tastes disgusting, even if I put a small amount of it into an otherwise tasty meal, it'll turn that tasty meal to gross lol.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “I hate kale. It’s so weird because I really like most green foods. That one is so nasty!”
One foodie shared: “Cottage cheese.
Definitely a mixture of texture issues and trauma from my early childhood. But I will not eat it, no matter what.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “Yep. I've seriously tried and can't do it. I've tried mixing it with blueberries. I've tried adding hot sauce. I can't get past the texture. That and my dad used to call it panty cheese. So that's stuck in my brain.”
One foodie shared: “Celery.. I hate the taste with a passion.”
Others agreed sharing: “My sister calls it "hairy water," and I couldn't agree more.”
One foodie shared: “Vegan bacon. Tastes truly awful.”
Another agreed sharing: “Probably isn't that healthy either, tbh.”
Acai Berry Stuff
One foodie shared: “Acai Berry Stuff.
Why is this a thing? Why is it a purple mass of goo that is so popular stores are opening up to sell it?
I don't have anything against it but i'd just eat a piece of fruit. all of the 'super food' labels to me basically scream SCAM.
Superfood does not exist; it's just food.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “That's how I felt when I first started eating acai bowls, but I warmed up to it and now I love them. But I totally understand why people hate that stuff.”
This food had mixed reviews from the community. One foodie shared: “Beets. They taste like dirt.”
Other foodies shared: “Love beets, we all need a lil dirt in our diets.” And, “Gotta rinse em champ. Beets are delicious.”
One foodie shared: “By themselves, they can't stand the texture of them. In a pasta sauce they're amazing.”
Another foodie shared: “I used to hate them until I was like 30. Now I like them.”
One foodie shared: “Fish. The healthier the fish, the stronger my ick. I cant even tolerate fish oil.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “The smell and taste, really. Most fin fish. I never had shellfish until I was an adult. I can eat shrimp. I have eaten fish and chips, which isn't fishy, with vinegar. My ex loved fish, especially salmon. I cooked it for him while trying not to breathe.”
One user shared: "They're disgusting. No, I'm no mixing it with anything, no I'm not putting salt on it, no I'm not eating it as guacamole. Avocados taste like wet balls of grass."
A foodie shared: "Purely a personal taste. I've had tofu cooked in multiple different ways by Chinese cooks and chefs in Chinatown, Singapore and no matter what they did with it the texture made me think this is what it would be like to eat slugs."
One user commented: "Those little plastic beads? I disagree with most of the healthy food on this list, I'm surprised I had to scroll so far down to find quinoa."
A user shared: "I mean they even look like they shouldn't be eaten. What's wrong with people!"
