I have a secret….. I don’t like kale chips. I know, I know, they are so nutritionally excellent, they are a great alternative to regular potato chips, they are a good way to get kids to eat kale, I know it all. But I just don’t like them. And after last night's umteenth time making them, following yet another recipe, I have decided to accept this fact and move on. Not all healthy foods are for everyone and that is okay. This doesn’t mean that I am destined to eat trans fat filled potato chips for life, it just means that I won’t be eating the healthy alternative either.
This all seems fairly simple but you would be surprised at how much this concept is not always clear to people when they find out that I am a nutritionist. There is something about learning this information that makes people do the following :
tell me everything they ate yesterday
ask me how many calories are in the beer they are drinking
tell me what they just don't like (ENTER HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE HERE)
