#StopTheCliche – Why food is not always sweet


How many times have you eaten food that tastes so nice and the best you can say is “the food is sweet.” We can bet the next time you see a meal that has all the colors of vegetables used to enhance its look you’d say “Oh the food looks sweet.” And when you finally taste a new fruit drink what do you say? “The drink is very very sweet.” We think that’s a boring way of expressing yourself. Writers have fun with words and you need to do the same.

In the words of J, K Rowling:
“Words are in my not so – humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it.”

Food is NOT always sweet. It’s time to update your vocabulary. These words can aptly describe food that looks appealing or tastes really good:

appetizing, delectable, delicious, delish, enjoyable, exquisite, filling, finger-licking, flavoured, flavoursome, flavourful, inviting , luscious, mellow, mouth watering, palatable, piquant, rich, sapid, savory, spicy, scrummy, succulent, sumptuous, tempting, titillating, toothsome, tasty, well prepared, well seasoned, yummy

Check the meaning of these words and feel free to use the right one the next time you want to describe a really good mouthwatering meal.
