‘GoodBad’ Foods

I’m going to start testing out how the use of the combined phrase ‘goodbad’ is received out on the street.

I’m frequently asked: ‘Is ___ food good or bad?’

I’ve frequently written and talked about how NO food is inherently good or bad.

It depends.

Is it good or bad for you?

How much, and how often?

There’s a big difference between eating one Oreo cookie on your birthday, and one every time you get bored.

One of them, I dare say, is good. (For you, not for me.)

But any time we’re talking ‘in general’ or ‘for all people’, any time we move the discussion away from YOU, the one individual, then we have to say ‘goodbad’, because inherently, every food is always potentially both.
