    Nutritious vs. Delicious: A Taste-bud Battle

    Is it possible for foods to be both nutritious and delicious? Either way, could you share some of your most nutritious and/or delicious recipes here for us?

    Nutritious and Delicious is easy.  There are some basics that make it easier even. 

    Use fresh ingredients from your farmer's market or from your garden.
    Do not add a lot of fat or oil
    Use fresh herbs and spices

    Here is one simple recipe:

    Asian Clay Pot Chicken

    1 pound of fresh chicken cut into pieces without skin
    2 onions chopped roughly
    2 or 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 sprigs of fresh thyme
    8 baby squash
    2 head broccoli
    6 baby carrots
    fresh ground pepper and sea salt

    This requires a clay baker that has been soaked for 10 to 15 minutes.

    In a skillet, sweat the onions for 4 to 6 minutes until that start to turn brown. Then add them to the bottom of the clay baker.  Add the chicken and garlic to onions. Place the vegetables over the chicken and top with the sprigs of thyme.  Salt and pepper to taste (it will not need a lot).  Place the top on clay baker and place in a cold over.  Set the temperature to 400 and cook for 30  minutes.  Check to be sure the chicken is done through and if not put it back in the oven for a few  more minutes.

    This will give you a nutritious and delicious meal that will have great tasting vegetables and a natural sauce from the pot to server with the meal.

    Watch for other recipes with my Hubs and check my blog at for even more good stuff.

    Yes it is. A lot of good tasting foods are very bad for you, but I have found a lot of natural foods that taste grweat.

    mostly delicious food is not nutritious and vice versa. i love delicious food over the nutritious one. but this nutritious food can be made delicious by some experiments. Always keep trying new things and spices to add a new aroma to the nutritious food. EAVEN THOUGH IT DOESNT taste good, one has consume it. No choice, it will keep you healthy and fit for long

    Burgers made at home.  Think about it, the meat (Protein), whole wheat bun (Carb), mount a lot of veggies (fiber, vit/min).  This is my favorite nutritious and delicious meal.  And yes, if you make it yourself and it is not all processed garbage, it can be very healthy and balanced meal.
