Logotopia, and the Little Twisted Nerve: Truth! - part 4:

There is a great deal of denial that goes into eating healthy. Brown rice is not delicious. It'll do for nutrition, but it's not delicious. Claiming that brown rice and fruit sweetened desserts and carob and soy cheese and garden burgers taste as good or better than fried food, butter, processed sugar, wheat, and non-soy real dairy cheese is a transparent and pathetic lie. The greatest culinary scientists in human history have devoted their collective intelligence to making the bad-for-you food taste better, because if you eat it they make money. That's just the facts. Claiming that health food tastes better is like claiming that third world sweat shop labor isn't cheaper. It is. It's horrible, but it is cheaper (for those of us that don't work there anyway). Eating healthy is a great thing to do, but you don't have to lie about it.
