    Eating tasty, well-prepared food is enjoyable. Eating bland, poorly-prepared food is not.

    Example: When I was a child, Thanksgiving dinner was the best meal ever: a huge delicious turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, green bean casserole in a mushroom soup sauce, yams, cranberry sauce. Then I married a vegetarian. Now Thanksgiving dinner is a dry, bland tofurkey (tofu turkey) with sides of grains and berries. My wife takes all the fun out of food.

    Going on any weight-loss diet which involves being deprived of any food you really enjoy takes the fun out of food.

    Anything that takes the fun out of eating takes the fun out of food.
