I had to jump on the bandwagon... seems its going around and since I have nothing better to talk about why the heck not???
A: is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?
Apples and I have a very unique relationship. I LOVE them now but as a kid I could not eat them (well refused to eat them) because they would squeak on my teeth and it still gives me chills to think of it. I like the soft juicy kind, as apposed to the crisp (the squeakers) so I think I have to say Fuji or Gala!
B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?
The darker the better. I love a dense thick bread. I have never been a big fan of white bread. I am lying. If you put any kind of bread in front of me, sweet, buttery, dense, fluffy... I would eat the crap out of it!
C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)
HARDEST QUESTION EVER. I LOVE cereal. There is just something so perfect about it :) My current favorite is just your good old All Bran.
D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?
Oh Em Gee.... I haven't had a donut in I couldn't even tell you how long but if I were going to have one it would have some sort of filling (custard) and be covered in Chocolate :)
E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?
The incredible, edible egg. Any way I can get them. I am lucky that my kids love eggs so much too because this is one of our "go to's" for dinner every week when time is tight. I love omele
ts filled with veggies and cheese!
F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?
Probably fat free cottage cheese.
G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?
Listen, I am a mom on a budget. I would love it if I could always shop at Whole Foods, or the like but I can't. I usually end up at Walmart or Smith's, due to convenience. I do however make the special trip to Whole foods every couple of weeks :)
H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?
I am a recovering coffee addict.
I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
My all time fav would have to be baskin Robbins Peanut butter and chocolate, and Pistachio. Don't get me wrong. I don't hate on any ice cream, I also love cookies and cream and mint chocolate chip. Favorite topping. Caramel. Yum.
J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?
When we lived in Cyprus one of my English friends had toast with Orange Marmalade every time we met for breakfast. I thought it was the most disgusting thing ever. Now.... I love it. :) So that would be my favorite, that or strawberry. Or raspberry.
K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?
The Kashi Honey Sunshine Squares is my favorite. I have alternated that with the All Bran!
L: is for Lunch, what was yours today?
Wish I had something amazing to say here but to be honest, I haven't had much of an appetite for the last week and have literally had to make myself eat something throughout the day (stress does that to me). I think I made myself eat a Fiber bar.
M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
POPCORN hands down
N: is for nutrients, do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?
Oh my. I love carbs. I think I am a carb-a-holic however carbs love my butt and that seems to be the only place they will settle SO.... I try to stick with lean meat and veggies on my diet and keep my carbs lower.
O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use?
I don't. I can't remember the last time I did. For me anyway. I use my PAM sprays.
P: is for protein, how do you get yours?
Mostly chicken, or fish. I will use my protein powders on occasion too but not everyday.
Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?
Yum, I love oats baked, overnight in a cookie or from the microwave. I am not picky!
R: is for roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?
I don't roast anything. LOL. I do however like when other people roast things. Meat or veggies please.
S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?
Easy. Turkey and Avocado with all the fixin's... uh huh!
T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?
Luckily (or maybe not so luckily) I don't travel a lot but when I have to if I am dieting for a comp I usually pack a bunch of protein and stick to salads, otherwise I just enjoy myself and eat within reason! I try not to indulge too much.
U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?
I don't think I have any. I guess other people might find it weird to eat ground turkey with mustard? When I am competition dieting I get all kinds of strange comments on what I eat... but I don't think its because its weird more because its boring.
V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take?
Right now I currently am not taking any. I ran out. I like to stick with CLA, L-Carnitine and a multi
W: is for wasabi, yay or nay?
YAY... burn baby burn!
X: is for XC Foodie, why is she so awesome?
Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood?
These do. My mom's famous cookie bars. I LOVE them and every time I felt homesick when we were away I had to make them. I came up with a "healthier" way to make them though.
Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it?
I LOVE zucchini, I like it steamed, or grilled or as bread :)
