TASTE vs NUTRITIONAL VALUE

ApocaLIPS

At least 3 times a day we indulge in a love affair with our mouths. The relationship is purely anatomic.

Wait. Time out. Minus the innuendo.

What I’m safely trying to say is, we eat for taste.

Don’t lie. We do.

At lunch or the dinner table, no one raves over beets, tofu or pumpkin. Artichoke hearts won’t be today’s special in any restaurant on the planet! Okra? Forget about it! Turnips would never make Team Vegan. A demotion to the practice squad? Maybe.
