I started a new weight training routine toward the latter part of December. It's a routine I found on World Fitness Network. My Brother-in-law Sean and I have been pretty diligent except for around the holiday and I feel we're starting to see some returns from our efforts.
In connection with the routine, I've been wanting to find some good protein powder to start taking because I'm trying to build a little lean mass for the 2010 training year. I'm excited to sign up for more events than ever before and believe it will be a great experience as I push myself to a new level. I found some pretty inexpensive protein powder at Costco the other day and bought a 6 lb bag. I was making some this afternoon with my five year old daughter Audrey looking on. She watched me thoughtfully for a few minutes and then said, "Dad, what's that?". I told her it was protein powder and that I was taking it because of my workout routine and to help me build a bit. She then paused again and asked, "Is it good?". Without much thought I replied, "Well, it's not really that good. I take it because it's good for me, not because it tastes good".
The ironic thing is that, as I was making my protein mix I was also pouring milk over some X-15. I thought to myself, "Boy, I'm sure glad Rokit Fuel tastes good because I eat it so often, I'd be suffering if I was just eating it because it's good for me". That is truly how I feel about Rokit Fuel. It's great for my body but I sincerely look forward to eating it. There are times I'd much rather have Rokit Fuel than pancakes and eggs which is a big deal because I love pancakes and eggs. I believe my body simply knows what's good for it and my taste buds obviously know what they like so, between the two factors, my whole being moves toward Rokit Fuel.
Anyway, I know that sounds a little extreme but I've been eating this stuff long enough to draw these dramatic conclusions. I'm excited to see Rokit Fuel truly take off and believe it will become a nationally enjoyed and recognized brand.
Okay so my question for all of you is if you would rather a food be healthy or tasty? Of course the best of both worlds is perfect, as I mention above, but are you willing to sacrifice taste for health?
