Sometimes delicious food can be really ugly. For instance, had I not already tasted all these things, I know that what I had for lunch today would not look appetizing at all.
That would be some fantastic homemade beans with half of a chorizo sausage leftover from Saturday, all kind of drenched in a cilantro cheesy sauce with a Tofutti Cream Cheese base. Spoon a bit onto a corn tortilla or just eat with chips, and you’re golden. It’s packed with flavor, it just kind of looks like sick.
I frequently have giant smoothies for my afternoon snack/whatever, and my officemates are always turned off by the look but intrigued by the smell, as it still smells good. Once greens/spirulina/flax get involved, they’re not interested. If you add blueberries in there, too, which turns the whole thing almost black, they’re gone. But it’s delicious, I promise! And full of goodness!
