    We all know how challenging it is to stay in shape, but what is one food you know is good but just don't care to eat it except for the heath benefits?

    My boyfriend makes them in a very tasty manner. He drizzles them with olive oil and spices and bakes them until they are sort of crispy on the outside. After they're done he brushes a watered down Dijon mustard sauce.

    Pretty much everything tastes better when it's been browned. It's from the Maillard reaction.

    I was making noodles (pasta) from scratch and was telling a friend about it. She asked what I put on them and I said just butter and a little salt. She was surprised and perplexed and I explained that making pasta requires a lot of work and time. You need to knead the dough for about 10 minutes, then wrap it in plastic and let it rest for 2 hours. Then put it through the rollers in the pasta machine several times adjusting it each time until you get a sheet that's as thin as you like, then use the cutting attachment. And then you can boil them. After all that work I wanted to taste them unadulterated.

    Let's face it, what you get is what could simply and succinctly be described as "boiled dough." Nobody's going to get excited if you told them that you're making boiled dough for supper.

    Baking, broiling, frying, etc. make food taste good. Steaming or boiling it in water does not.

    Kale. It's palatable in soups and blender drinks. Otherwise, it's right up there with parsley and lemon wedges as decor in the salad bar.

    I find kale quite palatable when it's lightly smothered in a ginger-miso sauce (learned that from the Veggie Grill).

    I grew up on a 135 acre farm with 5 ponds. Frog gigging was one of my past-times. There's nothing better than fresh frog legs straight from the pond. icon_cool.gif

    If you look at the ingredients carefully, most "dog food" actually has healthier ingredients than most processed human foods...not to mention a lot of it tastes better. icon_wink.gif

    Honey Roasted Peanuts!
    Peanuts in general are proven to increase sexdrive, improve eyesight, and recent news suggests having peanuts in early childhood can fight off allergens, and lower your chances of getting cancer.

    Downside to them is you eat too much, you'll get the shlitz : /

    Btw, gee it's so nice of you to knock-off a thread I started earlier called "hard to say NO foods". . . very uncool.

    Wheatgrass.

    The only thing worse, maybe, is castor oil.

    What about raw egg whites, straight up? (Pasteurized of course.)

    He's an uncool cook too!!!

    He makes a delicious raw hamburger. It's uncooked loaded with green slime and then add that rotten cheese on a moldy bun.....I feel like a vulture when I do it......

    Green tea, extra strong, no honey/sugar or milk.
    It's not the taste but what it does for you.

    I find it hard to eat cruciferous veggies unless I dress them up in some way.


    Brussel sprouts halved, then blanched, then sautéed in butter until caramelized a bit are amazingly delicious

    I've never seen it on a menu, but it should be

    Never had raw egg whites straight up - I put them in protein smoothies to make the smoothies creamier. (My version of meringue.)

    Never did that with wheatgrass because presumably it'd dilute the benefits.

    It can do great things for the skin; I used to take green tea supplements, but it led to heartburn, so now I'm careful not to overdo it.

    That reminds me...it's been months since I did green tea every morning. I knew something was missing from my paleoriffic diet and couldn't remember what it was. Now I remember. icon_biggrin.gif
