I LOOOVVEEE a good meal. I will pay a pretty penny for a piece of fresh fish or for authentic Itallian pasta. I’m obsessed with flavor palates and taste profiles and all that god stuff, but it hasn’t been like that. I was fortunate enough to grow up with a mom who loved to cook, but she also loved to make things taste great. This usually involved mass amounts of butter and salt and sugar, but who doesn’t love a good helping of heart attack?
Now that I’m older and live on my own, I try to eat a lot healthier than this, but when I want to splurge I go all out and, honestly, I think that’s totally worth it. If I go out to eat, I’ll order chicken or fish, but sometimes I don’t.
I’m not saying all healthy food is gross and can’t be just as flavorful as butter soaked mashed potatoes with cheese, but sometimes I want those potatoes. It’s totally okay to cheat and enjoy a dish you really want to try. It’s just not good for you to go out to eat 4 nights a week and indulge every time you go out.
Love the food you eat and don’t cheat yourself on that comfort food we all know and love so much. Sometimes, you just need a little (or a lot of) butter in our lives.
