A common misconception is that healthy food just doesn’t taste as good. However, any healthy food lover will tell you that if you find the right thing, they taste just as good as the unhealthy versions. A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What healthy food tastes just as good as unhealthy food?” which sparked a debate on what foods really were just as good. Here are the top responses.
One foodie shared: “Cuties” mandarin oranges.”
Another foodie commented: “I’ll grab like 5 and just hide in my room and eat them and then come out and grab 5 more. Theyre good.”
One foodie commented: “Homemade popcorn. Get some kernels from the supermarket, pop them in a pot or something, and chuck some salt on. Heck, lump some butter on too, then it may not quite qualify as "Healthy", but it's still a heck of a lot better than packaged microwave popcorn.”
One foodie shared: “Oh God I cannot keep pistachios in my house because I'll eat all of them. I once bought a Costco bag. Never again.”
One foodie suggested: “Dried mango tastes like hairy gummy bears... personally, I like it.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “Dried mango is amazing, but I feel that you described it in the worst possible way, lol.”
One foodie commented: “If you do it right, smoothies.”
Another agreed sharing: “I put tons of veggies in my smoothies (spinach, kale, carrots, beets, arugula, parsnips, etc). Seriously half my smoothie is veggies and I mask the flavor with fruits. I usually also add half an avocado, protein powder, turmeric powder and hemp or flax seeds.
I usually eat it for dinner and call it the “lazy salad.”
Freshly Picked Berries
One foodie shared: “Fresh picked berries, especially when they're still warm from the sun.
I can eat a bowl of them like a bowl of chips.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “I hope everyone at some point gets the chance to eat nice ripe blackberries, fresh off the vine. They just absolutely pop with flavor. One of my favorite parts of springtime.”
One foodie commented: “Fresh peaches. When they are just ripe is their peak of flavor.”
Another foodie shared their experience: “I had one of these in Italy. Our tour guide told the bus driver to pull over to buy fresh peaches... and as soon as I bit into it, the peach juices were dripping down my chin and arm. Best peach I’ve ever had. I think about it a lot... and this was back in 2011.”
One foodie shared: “Mackinaw peaches, Jerry!”
Another agreed sharing: “This is a miracle of nature that exists for a brief period, it’s like the Aurora Borealis.”
One foodie shared: “I mean hummus is healthy if you eat it like a normal person. For some reason, I can’t help but eat the whole family size hummus in one setting..”
