Is Good Food All About Taste?

In case you’re actually wondering, the answer is no! There are at least 3 other major aspects that make food “good”. Of course, taste is a major factor for most people, and that’s why most people in America are, well, unhealthy…

Welcome to Mizuna Food, the blog all about healthy eating and cooking at home with kitchen appliances. I just used my Samsung oven today to cook a great cabbage sausage. If you don’t know what a cabbage sausage is then you’ll learn all about it on a later post. I promise.

But, now, here are those 3 major aspects that make food “good” even if it tastes bad. Before we start I just want to say thanks for checking out our new blog. We’re so glad you’re here!

3 Things Besides Taste that Make Food “GOOD”

1. The science behind GMOs is still in a blurry gray zone when it comes to health but I’ve been persuaded for years now that organic means you’re not taking a risk in the first place. 100 years ago all food was “organic” because GMOs didn’t exist yet, or at least in the way we understand GMOs today. We could sit here and argue that modern corn and kale are GMOs, but you know what I mean when I say GMO, right? I’m talking about foods that have been engineered in a lab by scientists at a molecular level, not just foods that we’ve shaped over hundreds of years like we have with breeding dogs. So, in my circle, organic food is good food!

2. This one is simple! If it’s meat, was it raised ethically? By that I mean were the animals raised in pens tied toe to toe with no sense of what free life feels like. I love how good it feels to eat ethically raised meat, and you should too.

3. This one is also simple… was the food raised with or without preservatives? For me, it doesn’t matter how good the food tastes if it comes from a year-old bag that’s pumped full of chemicals that cause cancer. Enough said!


So now you know taste isn’t the only thing that makes food good. And for all you lovely people who already knew that, please share this post to spread awareness. Thanks for reading.
