If more Americans are to eat healthier (and I have too many friends that eat junk food), then how can we make it taste better so we can share our ideas with our more mainstream friends? Whether it's whole wheat bread, brown rice, or anything else that you have found to be healthier than mainstream shelf items- share how you make them delicious. Food that many people hate because they're "just healthy" but not as good as the unhealthy alternative.
For example, I recently came up with an amazing whole wheat pancake recipe- after time after time of trying to perfect it. The problem I have with most whole wheat waffles or pancakes is how friggen dry they are. I came up with one that is 100% whole wheat, but you would honestly never know it. The secret is to add an extra egg to a basic whole wheat pancake recipe and add more milk. It's really important to be as moist as possible, if they are to not taste like dry bricks.
Brown rice is a classic healthy food that many people hate, including myself. I completely hate it. In every way. To me, it ruins the taste of any food I've had. I refuse to eat it with ethnic food, Indian food, Thai food, etc. HOWEVER, I am willing to try it in a completely different way- ie, not as a replacement for white rice, but rather, a meal in its own, unique- if that even makes sense. I've heard some people will fry nuts and put it in as a "nutty snack"? I've never tried that, but if you think it tastes good- do tell!
So, I was curious what other people do to attempt to make raw foods, whole wheat, brown rice, soy, or anything else that you think is healthy for your family, actually taste good. Some people think it all taste good on their own without much effort, that's great. But me, and quite a few others who want to completely convert to a more whole grains, raw food lifestyle, have problems with the taste of it.
