    Re: Health or Taste?

    The truth is that it's really hard to eat healthy nowadays...bio stuff are not that healthy in many regions, but last I've eaten in McDonalds or similar Fast Food was too long time ago to remember, so I guess health does count a bit as well...but I don't eat for health...I eat for the taste as well

    Re: Health or Taste?

    It seems to be the true challenge nowadays: to make healthy and delicious food. XD Bio stuff is not very popular here as well, and even though fast food restaurants like you mentioned have tried to implement such kind of action (I once bought a "healthy rice" from KFC, but well, I can't really tell the difference ^^"), I don't think it works that much. At least from what I've seen here.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I feel like such a dork, but I have to say I prefer health. If we're strictly speaking about cooking, it is so much easier to modify the taste of something over the health of it. For instance, I was stir-frying some peppers, broccoli, and tofu last night and tried using grapeseed oil. I usually use canola oil, but this time I opted for a more healthy choice. I worried that the grapeseed oil would add too much of a taste, but it didn't at all. The dish came out light, tasty, and healthy! I think it is sad to hear that people equate healthy with bad-tasting, because it just isn't true. While it is true that fast food will never be healthy, you can make a lot of easily and more cheaply at your house. I understand that we've all got busy schedules, trust me! I work and go to school too! However, some recipes only take a couple of minutes, and you can make enough to last you a couple days for only a couple dimes! I encourage you all to give cooking a chance and you'll see the possiblities of eating healthily : D!

    Haha, (un)fortunately I can't cook anything but instant noodle at the moment, so I can only do my best in choosing healthy foods. If I really become a housewife who has to cook for the family someday, I wish I can make a delicious but healthy food like you did. :3

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I voted for taste because I wouldn't eat something only for the sake of health.
    But also the other way around. It needs to be balanced. And that's the best way to go I suppose.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    well eating something healthy definitely is important but I'm going for taste.
    there sure are things healthy and tasty but when it's just supposed to be healthy I really have to force myself to eat it XD

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I prefer taste, but I avoid things that I know taste good but are unhealthy. Its best to avoid things that you know are pleasurable but either dangerous or addictive if you want to avoid trouble later on. I'm not obsessed by health though, and even though I don't eat often I find it hard to stop when something tastes good. When food doesn't taste good, I don't eat very much. I'm a pleasure addict who has enough sense to avoid serious trouble before I cause it.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    Well, back when I was in the bulking process of my weight lifting, I was never really concerned about my health. I would pig out and ate whatever I wanted, healthy or not. It was when I started to cut that I started to strip off unhealthy foods out of my diet.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I would say that I always prefer taste over everything. I totally can't eat anything if I don't like how it tastes or smells even if it's healthy and looks good.
    Also, even though after New Year's celebrations I try to loose weight I still can't totally give up all unhealthy food at once like fried potatoes, chips and sweets. The thing is I'm too fond of sweets like chocolate and other types.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    Lol you're only a few weeks into the new year so giving up those foods is still possible. Candy and potato chips are the guilty pleasures of probably 99% of the world, and it'd be a miracle if you were able to abruptly give them up without craving them afterwards.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I practically made a miracle.) Now I only eat less than kilo of sweets and chips a week.) Before it would have been more than 2 for sure and might be even more than 3 kilos a week.
    About 7 years ago, when I began studing in University it was about 6 kilos of sweets and chips weekly.)

    Re: Health or Taste?

    Actually I made it last one year and a half)))
    The thing is I'm really fond of sweets, thus it was really difficult to not eat as much as I wanted))

    Taste all the way. However it is, I love all edible greens and sweets a little too much.

    Taste. No use in living long if you constantly have to eat stuff that taste like shit.
