Many taboo foods arent as bad as you think, or they at least have close alternatives that wont kill you.
Pork rinds, for example, are deep-fried pigskin, but Junk Food Thats Good for You, an article on the website of Mens Health magazine, points out that they also have zero carbs, nine grams of fat – 43 percent unsaturated – and 17 grams of protein, which make them more acceptable than, say, a small bag of potato chips.
Beef jerky is high in protein, and its possible to find jerky that has no preservatives.
And finally, those who worry about their love of chocolate can take solace in knowing that it contains flavonoids that improve blood flow to the heart.
Moderation is key.
