Are There Any Foodies In The House?…TWO-sday Random Post #10
Here is our TWO-sday Shot!
I shared with you last week about not feeling in tip top shape. You can read about it here. I went and saw a specialist last Friday and he lectured me for one hour about healthy eating folks!! Do you want to know what he told me I could eat? Yes, you guessed it…FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, then he said, MORE fruits and vegetables and even MORE fruits and vegetables. He took away everything I kid you NOT. No coffee, tea, wine, chocolate, red meat, all fat and on and on. “Just shoot me now,” I said! He said, “Lets hope it doesn’t come to that!”
After photographing asparagus a few weeks ago, I found a new love of photographing vegetables. I have never seen vegetables as beautiful but now my eyes can see the beauty. Oh happy day…
What makes healthy eating SO hard??
After some research, this is what I found and it is finally making sense to me.
Our taste buds have been genetically engineered to crave high-calorie, high-fat foods (that we used to need for energy—hunting, gathering, exploring the continent, etc), and now we’ve created food that tastes even better than nature’s, which makes lettuce a hard sell when compared to a juicy burger.
The good news: This “addiction” goes both ways, and you can slowly start to change your tastes and become “addicted” to healthier foods if you start eating them enough. That’s what food psychologist Marcia Pelchatfound when she gave test subjects a low-fat, vanilla-flavored drink (described as ‘not very yummy’) every day for two weeks. After consuming it so often, most people started to crave the drink, despite its ‘chalky’ taste. The point: Even if vegetables taste terrible to you now, the more you eat them regularly, the more you’ll start to enjoy them.
Can I share with you that I can’t wait for the day the addiction is over with?♥
