Thanks to Erin @ Glam, Glitz & Gut I got this cute little A, B, C questionnaire about food.
A: is for Apple, what's your favourite variety?
I personally love Granny Smith's because of the tartness. I also love Fuji's
B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?
I love sourdough. My dad use to buy this all the time while I was growing up. It goes back to the sour thing for me. It had just a hint of it. Smother it with butter and OMG.
C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)
If it is a somewhat healthy cereal I would pick Honey Nut Cheerios, if it's a bad one Alphabets....lol
D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?
It would be a tie between a chocolate dip, and a honey cruller
E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?
I will only eat them if they are scrambled, or in an omelet. I think eggs are gross any other way. Please don't ask why because I don't have an answer. My mother asked me for years growing up and I didn't have an answer for her either.
F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?
Swedish Fish gummies & Sour Patch Kids. It's the sugar that will get ya though.....
G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?
Right now I get all my fruits & veggies from a stand that sells local produce, I get my meat from Mr. Meats (original I know) and the rest of the stuff at a local supermarket. Unfortunately there is no Whole Food or Trader Joe's near me unless I cross the border.
H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?
Hot Chocolate from Starbucks (no whip) or Green Tea
I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavour and add a fun topping.
This one is easy. My fav is Heavenly Hash, or Mint Chocolate Chip (Baskin Robbin's only) I can't add a fun topping because I don't like anything on my ice cream. How about a sugar/waffle cone instead?
J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavour?
I hate jam. I always have. Don't like marmalade either.
K: is for Kashi, name your favourite Kashi product?
I love the Dark Chocolate Coconut bars. These are glorious, in fact I'm eating one as I'm writing this!
L: is for Lunch, what was yours today?
I had a Chicken, Spinach & Mushroom sandwich from Lean Cuisine. These taste great and I have it at least once a week. I also had a fuji apple, and lots of water
M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
Not much amazing comes out of a microwave I think. I'm gonna have to go with Edamame for healthy, and popcorn for semi healthy
N: is for nutrients, do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?
Carbs. I love my potatoes, and bread. I miss salt too.....lol
O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use?
I use canola oil for everything. I find it to be the most versatile oil of them all.
P: is for protein, how do you get yours?
I get most of my protein from eggs in the morning, and meat the rest of the day. No protein shakes in this house
Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?
Pre-packaged in a box that says Raisin's and Spice. I miss eating this cause it's not good for me, but this was my favourite oatmeal growing up.
R: is for roasting, what is your favourite thing to roast?
MMMMM anything. Chicken, Potatoes, Beef, Garlic, this list could go on and on
S: is for sandwich, what’s your favourite kind?
I like making sandwiches on my panini press. Start with a nice crusty bun, add mustard and some buffalo mozzarella cheese. Then add some arugula, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, then some roasted red peppers. Next the meat, sweet capicola, and mortadella. Then press the shit out of it......my mouth is watering as I am typing. So much for that Kashi bar earlier.
T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?
I can't really answer this fairly as I haven't been anywhere since I have started dieting.
U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?
I used to put syrup on my pierogi's
V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take?
Right now I'm not taking any due to doc's orders. When I do though it quite a bit. I believe I have a list on my second post in my blog
W: is for wasabi, yay or nay?
That is a big nay for me.....
X: is for XRAY. if we x-rayed your belly right now, what food would we see?
A kashi bar floating around in a whole lot of water
Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood?
Is it terrible to say that I don't have one. I sat and thought about this one for a while too. Nothing I ever eat triggers memories from when I was a kid
Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it?
Slice it up, drizzle a little oil, some cajun seasoning, rub it in, then grill it on the BBQ. Soooo Goood!
