What 'healthy' foods did you ultimately give up on?

  • Quinoa! It's so freaking gross, and I've tried it so many ways. Yuck.
    Kale is another one. I tried making kale chips before, and the crunchy leaves just become a gross mess once you actually eat them. Ew.
    Any kind of shake that's supposed to replace a meal. I can't stand drinking them. I never feel as full as when I eat a solid meal.
    Coconut milk and rice milk. Just ew. I'll stick with dairy milk or almond.

    Also not a fan. I go through salad cravings, though, when certain types of salad are all I want to eat. Then it passes and I will go months without another salad.

    I only enjoy salads if they have real caesar salad dressing on them (including the anchovies, thank you very much). Other than that, I like salads more in principle than in practice.

    I had a grilled kale Caesar salad this week and sweet Jesus it was delicious. I adore anchovies!

    Ooh, that sounds very good. And yes! to anchovies. We always have a tin in the cupboard, just in case...

    I'm in the 'I'll eat almost anything' camp, (though sometimes stray too close to the 'I'll eat almost all the things' portion-control problem camp). The closest I've come to ruling out 'healthy' foods is readjusting how I use them. I adore steamed kale, can't abide kale chips. So I don't do kale chips. With many ingredients, I do think it's just figuring out how to make them work (aubergine/eggplant, I'm looking at you...) but we're pretty experimental foodies in our house, so trying something differently is a regular occurrence.

    Coconut water is disgusting. It doesn't even taste like coconut!

    ...all I could smell was barfed Chobani.

    You should pitch that flavor to the company....they are always looking for new products to put on the market. "Barfed Chobani", tastes the same going down as it does coming up!

    Only in the beginning. I started eating egg whites. I dread them. Eventually stopped putting salt on them so I can't taste them and then I just cut them out haha I couldn't do it

    I have started liking many more foods than I don't, since trying to eat healthy.
    Here's some are a few I can't stomach:
    I never liked brussel sprouts, most beans, and beets. Still don't.
    seaweed crackers
    most gluten free anything
    ghee in my coffee ... but love it on my toast or veggies
    I use to eat low fat anything I could fine. No more. Full fat. More moderation.

    I decided to give up the fiber one bars that I had been using as a crutch. I snack on fruits and veggies now and get about the same fiber content with a better full feeling.
    Also I learned that I hate anything with acai. Don't know why but I can't stand it.
  • Stevia and protein bars.

    ohhh goodness yes Daiya is horrible. If I ever went vegan, I'd just leave off anything like that rather than try to get used to Daiya.

    I really tried, honest. I thought I could get used to it in time, but I cant. The whole product line is super gross.

    Daiya is just scary. My sister tried to go full-on vegan for a while and stocked up on Daiya stuff. Even after several tries, she just couldn't get used to it. Her cat, on the other hand, would howl, paw at her and even try to jump on the counter to get a bite of the stuff! Ever since then, I can only think of Daiya as cat food. I don't eat cat food.

    Fiber One bars and my digestive system really don't get along. Thank goodness I always had the dogs to blame.

    LOL, me too, I liked how they taste but the ahhh, after effects, not good. But as we only have a parrot and no dogs, no hiding who was to blame at our house.
