Fact: many people would have a much easier time dialing in their nutrition if they knew how to cook tasty food.
I’ll never forget the day I decided I was going to eat myself to a new state of “jackedness”. It was right before Christmas break of my junior year in college. So I went home and ate 5,000 calories a day, every day. I stuffed my face from 185 pounds to 195 pounds over about four weeks. It wasn’t even that hard.
Here’s the kicker – my mom made all my food.
So the first summer I was on my own, I was up shit’s creek because I only knew how to make two meals: plain scrambled eggs with plain oatmeal, and plain chicken breast with plain asparagus and plain brown rice. I ate this five times a day, every day. And I hated every minute of it.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be tasteless and miserable. There are tons of ways to add flavor, texture and enjoyment to food without destroying the nutritional value. Once I finally learned how to do this, I turned healthy eating into a joy instead of a chore.
