It seems as though for as long as I can remember, everyone just eats chicken breast. For the life of me, I simply just can't understand this. Yes, I'm aware that breast meat is slightly leaner, but we all need fats in our diets, right? To me, chicken breast is just plain boring, it's like the meat version of tofu. Yeah, you can season it however you like to give it flavor, but dark meat has actual flavor of its own, and is more moist. It's also a hell of a lot cheaper. Please realize that I'm not some kid asking a dumb question, I'd really like to know what it is that makes chicken breast so appealing to the BB crowd. Like I said, the nutritional facts are nearly the same, just slightly more fat and a TON more flavor, and it's virtually impossible to dry out dark meat. I get it if you're trying to get into contest condition, but for most of the time why is dark meat "shunned" or completely neglected from the majority of your diets? I look at peoples examples of their daily diets, and it seems like people eat chicken breast 2-3x a day. Seriously, if you look around, it seems like the majority of people on here eat "chicken breast, brown rice, and broccoli" for about 1000 meals a year. If there's something I'm missing here, please let me know. I hate eating boring food, I'd never get my daily calories in if I had to eat boring food all day, every day. Personally I like to mix things up, mixing dark meat chicken, seafood, beef, pork, lamb, etc as my protein sources. Just my thoughts, and you have any input, please let me know. Thanks!
