“Healthy meals are boring!” one of the most common phrases I hear. Why do you like to eat rabbit food? healthy food is sooo bland! vegetables don’t taste as good as a big mac! i’m not kidding, I hear this all the time.

Well I beg to differ, in fact healthy food can not be any more exciting. I think the problem is people are just unaware of how to make meal times exciting.

Just because it’s vegetables, it doesn’t mean you have to leave out the spices and herbs. We all need to be a little creative at times and adventure with food. You really wouldn’t know if you like it until you tried and trust me you will. Not only will your taste buds thank you for it, but most importantly your body.
