Tasty food is not what you expect

Kentucky Fried Chicken

Kentucky Salty Chicken

As many people may know from reading Tweaked for your Pleasure, I do tend to eat a lot of fast food and other non healthy food. I am sure many of the reasons why people do tend to these food like this is mostly for two reasons;

  1. They do not have time to make healthier food (although it is NOT that hard nor long to do).
  2. They believe that the “healthy” food does not taste as good.

While I can understand the first option, it is the second option I do not understand. While I will agree food like that does taste very nice but it does not last. Now I am not sure if I am the only person who this happens too but when I am eating something like chips & cheese that I will enjoy while a lot of it but after a while I start to get a salty sickly taste that will start to appear.

While I am sure people will say this will happen to any food, I have found out that if I eat what people “believe” as healthy food I tend to find that I enjoy every bite until the end and this is regardless how much of it I actually eat.

So if this is the case with many people – what I can not figure out is why would you prefer eating non healthy food over healthy food when ultimately that healthy food ends up always tasting better. Sure I can understanding having the “non healthy” stuff in small doses or with the healthy food but why keep eating the non healthy stuff when it end up tasting worst then the healthy stuff?

So what is your reason for it. Do you prefer healthy food over non healthy food, or do you just eat whatever you can find in the cupboards?

    Guess I've always found non-healthier food better tasting. Prefering healthier food is like saying that a salad is better tasting than a plate of chicken. I should say I'm non-vegetarian for the record.

      @PointMan,

      …. yes that is exactly the point. If people preferred healthy food over salad, they would eat it. I am failing to see your actual point in your comment.

      So you do not get the case where the food you eat does not start to get sickly and all that?

        @Snat, My point was that a salad counts as healthy food, and I didn't think it tastes as good as chicken does.

        There isn't many things that get sickly to me after a while, but some things do get boring.

        @PointMan,

        But that is all down to a matter of taste however. I am sure there are many people that prefer the taste of salad over chicken, just like how people prefer the taste of beef over chicken.

        And do not forget, even chicken is healthy food – it all depends on how much, how it is all cooked and all that 😉

        Lucky you if it doesn't get sickly, it happens to often with me and chips and cheese.

       But a salad CAN taste better than a place of chicken 😉

      It really depends on what’s in the salad and how the chicken is prepared 😀

    True. As people say you can't always have the same meal all the time but there is nothing wrong for swapping a plate of chips for a salad of some sort.
