Make Nutrition Flavorful Again

Updated: Jul 18, 2021

When you think of a healthy diet, what foods do you think of?

Most likely, you think what the vast majority of nutritional experts recommend. Foods like kale, chicken, and chia seeds.

Unfortunately, American society has painted a very boring and unappetizing picture of eating well. Featuring bland "clean" meat like chicken or turkey and unsatiating salads, America's nutritional guidance is lacking in both flavor and science.

Up until the 20th century, humans didn't have the understanding of the nutritional sciences that we have today. Yet, the primitive approaches that were handed down from generation to generation were filled with wisdom and common sense that is nonexistent in the field of modern nutritional science.

Traditionally, various cultures made food that was equally delicious and nutritious.

For example, the French are universally recognized for creating some of the most unique and flavorful dishes. French cuisine cherishes serving foods with bold and sophisticated flavors. Motivated by flavor, traditional French cuisine makes 2021 American "clean" eating a total disgrace.

As we're over here eating seeds and drinking celery juice, the French- notorious for being trim and healthy- are enjoying foods like filet mignon, mouthwatering cream-based sauces, and plenty of butter. Moreover, the French (and the vast majority of various traditional cultures) understand the importance of consuming organ meats, a custom that is far removed from the norms of American nutrition.

In France, food is grown with care and prepared with intentionality. The priority is to create food that tastes delicious. Flavor is their nutritional guide. Not macros or calories.

When flavor is emphasized, sufficient nutrition will follow. And I am talking about real, meaningful flavors. Not the fraudulent flavors that the American food industry creates to make us addicts to their disease-causing, food-like products.

As I've said before, the most nutritious foods are the most satisfying foods:

Beef, pork, lamb, milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, and butter.

Even small amounts of these animal foods contain more nutrients than heaping amounts of spinach and kale. And the best part is, these foods are both delicious and fulfilling.

It's time American nutrition revises its ever-so-boring perspective of nutrition. The truth is, you don't have to hate your life to eat a nutrient-rich, disease-preventing diet. Conversely, eating healthfully should be enjoyable and satisfying.
