Now some people can eat the exact same thing day in and day out. We've all met that person. The person that looks at food as just a fuel source. For the rest of us however, food is pleasure and when it's boring, it can be a whole lot of pain.
One of the reasons I find people get bored with healthy eating is that they don't give new foods a chance. They say things like "I don't want to eat like a bird" or "It all tastes like cardboard to me."
But have you really given new healthier foods a chance? Look at it this way: you have been eating a diet of mainly processed, salty, sugary, fatty foods for a while now, so your taste buds have gotten accustomed to a certain kind of flavor. You also probably haven't felt the need to add anything new to your diet because those less healthy options have been satisfying on their own.
So when these new healthier foods are put in front of you, what do you do? You turn up your nose and say "Gross!".
But did you even try it?
The response to this is often "Well I'm just a picky eater."
Well I'm here to say, "Don't knock it till you try it.". How can you know you won't like it? Do you have psychic powers? If so please send me an email with next week's lottery numbers. I'd like to buy myself a jet ski.
If you want to stand any sort of chance at improving your diet, you will have to try new things. Just take a couple of bites. If you don't like it after that, it's fine. We all have preferences. It's the same concept we use with kids when they act up at the table because you DARED to put broccoli on the plate.
Another thing you need to ask yourself is "was the food prepared well". If not, you may want to consider giving it another shot down the road when someone more experienced is making it.
For example, I used to despise cabbage rolls. That is, until I had them made properly by a sweet Slovenian grandmother that can make them in her sleep.
So don't give up on food. You might be missing out on some realy amazing flavors and if you really put the effort in, you might even surprise yourself.
