Here at Citrus the Diner, our goal is to serve up delicious food that everyone can enjoy, while also making sure our menu includes plenty of healthy options. We understand that health food does not have to be boring, but can in fact be flavorful and appetizing. In this article, we’ll go over a few tips for how to select health food options that you will actually enjoy.
- Keep Your Favorite Flavors- If you are struggling to find health food options that appeal to you, one strategy that may prove effective is to start with your favorite flavors and work from there. Try to find dishes that offer those flavors (so that they’ll satisfy your taste buds), while also changing up the composition to include healthier alternatives (so they’ll satisfy your dietary needs).
- Try Fancier Versions- Another way to find health food that you will enjoy is to go to a fancy restaurant. Often, tasting what a great chef can do with healthy ingredients that you might have written off is a great way to broaden your culinary horizons and start learning to like those ingredients. For example, many people don’t care for brussels sprouts due to bad memories of a parent cooking them at home, but would find sprouts prepared by a trained chef quite tasty.
- Give Yourself Options- A third way to teach yourself to like more healthy food is to give yourself more options. Many people make the mistake of limiting their diets to just a few dishes when trying to eat healthier, which quickly becomes boring and unsatisfying. Instead, try to have a few options in mind for what to eat in order to give yourself a more varied and enjoyable experience with health food. A great way to do this is to eat at restaurants that offer a variety of healthy options, such as ours.
