    Oh geesh, this is a thread about HEALTHY foods we don't like, and I just put a list of foods in general.
    Guess ANY food can be healthy in the right amount.
    (oh no, where am I going with this? now people are going to start arguing about that)
    ...wanders off in a daze

    :lol: No worries. I wasn't quite as evolved when I started this as I am now. "Healthy" is about as useful a descriptor as "clean."

    Kale. Tough and bitter. No amount of dressing, toppings or combination with fruit can mask this nasty green. Not a fan of collards either but I can eat them. Kale, disgusting. It should have stayed as a garnish on your restaurant appetizer or entree plate.

    Fresh pomegranate. It's hard and gets stuck in my teeth.
    Peanut butter, which probably doesn't count as a health food anyway.
    Beetroot and the way it seems to find its way into every salad.
    Anything with coriander in it!
    Edit : forgot brussel sprouts!

    And after you eat it, it looks like you just murdered someone (spurting juice)

    Insert my husband's F-bomb-laden rant on kale here - something about it being a roadside weed that a badger pissed on, etc etc.

    This is a good description of Kale [ it makes a fine roadside weed - and brussell sprouts , you can't put enough butter on them to make them eatable

    add Tofu - it's evil - & low fat diet ice cream - I want the real thing - with fat

    I hate every kind of good food that they adulterate to try to make it "healthy."
    Sugar-free cookies. Low-fat ice cream. Diet soda. etc.
    If you want a treat, but you don't want to be unhealthy, eat a piece of fruit or some raw vegetables (which I like) or even a small piece of dark chocolate.
    But don't take something good and ruin it by taking the goodness out and replacing it with something artificial that just does not compare.
    I vote for the dried banana chip over the fat-free potato chip.
    I'd even take a rice cake with natural peanut butter over a diet cookie.
    Perrier over diet soda.
    Fruit tastes great, and there's fiber in a piece of fruit, so it doesn't dump its sugars all at once and challenge your insulin response. It has nutrients too. Sugar-free dessert may not be "bad" for you. But it isn't any "good" either.

    Kale. I tried to eat it. I really did, but it is just not good. I'm pretty sure it's a conspiracy. Like they grew too much of it and were like "let's call this a 'superfood' so everyone will buy it" and everyone did, but I've seen garden weeds that looked tastier.

    Oh boy, just a couple?

    I can't stand beets, they taste like dirt no matter how they're cooked.

    Raw celery. Yeah, everyone says it tastes like nothing, but it tastes like SOMETHING yucky!

    Grapefruit. Too sour.

    I don't know if it's really "healthy" or just fad stuff, but my cousin made some tofu cookies once.

    I ate a mouth full of dirt and grass playing football once and that tasted better. Since then anything with tofu I just can't eat. They were that bad.

    carrots
    tomatos
    bell peppers
    fish, except tuna is ok

    Glad I'm not the only one - Kale can get lost.

    I eat a huge amount and variety of veg, but have never found a way to make it tolerable.
    Anyone who talks to me about make crisps can also get lost!

    Brussel sprouts, can't do it. Cauliflower either really but I've learned to tolerate it "riced" and with salt & pepper because I have got to lose this weight and am trying to support my hubby's no carb diet choices. That's true love! Lol

    I hate most raw vegetables i do like them cooked though. Except cauliflower and cabbage those are disgusting either way.

    Tofu. It belongs in the garbage.

    Mushrooms. It's a texture thing more than a taste thing.
