As he ran to the store, I got to thinking about foods I'm not too fond of, which led to a little brainstorming sesh, and that's why you are now going to read about my favorite and not-so-favorite foods.
(A word about the title: When I was young, my mom taught me that if I don't like something at a meal, I should say, "I don't care for that." It's supposed to be a more polite way of declining foods. Terry thinks it's cute.)
Breakfast: French toast
Lunch: Grilled veggie sandwich (eggplant, zucchini, roasted bell peppers, grilled onions, maybe some aioli and/or feta)
Dinner: Burgers (obviously)
Dessert: Brownie sundae (love the hot/cold combo!)
Healthy Snack: Greek yogurt with applesauce and cinnamon
Appetizer: Mom's mushroom pizzas or baked brie
Fruit: Pear (at least lately)
Salty Snack: Buffalo Bleu Kettle Chips
Spice: Cinnamon or sea salt
Splurge: Sweet potato fries
Most Likely Impulse Buy: Trader Joe's Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Most Frequent Craving: Pepperoni pizza
- Cooked carrots
- Most canned fruits and vegetables
- Blood oranges (new discovery)
- Extra-spicy foods
- Juice and juice-based smoothies
Take It Or Leave It
- Some seafood (has to be cooked just right)
- Goat cheese
- Cupcakes (my uncle still hasn't forgiven me for this one)
So, who's hungry now? We'll be enjoying our nightly dessert in a few minutes (latest favorite: homemade strawberry ice cream with a few chocolate chips and white chocolate chips), and we're getting up early again for tomorrow's leg workout.
Speaking of which, today's 5 am sweat session was a quick 35 minutes on the treadmill, and we each hit three miles. We're both really getting into the new morning routine. The best part? We work out together almost every day! I really love this healthy habit, and it's so important to me that my husband is willing to get healthy with me. I want to live a healthy lifestyle, and I want to set a healthy example for our future children. We're doing all this work now so it's easier later.
Okay, tangent over. Hope you're having a great week!
