How Low Can You Go

Food Love and Hate

>> Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Allison at Doublechinned had this on her page and I thought it was an excellent idea.  List 5 foods that you used to love before your started eating healthier, 5 foods that you now love and 5 foods that you cannot stand.   If you choose to do this, tell them you saw it here!

Foods That I Used to Love

  1. Muffins--I used to have one of these a day (man it sounds like a drug), they are really not that good for me and I feel better that I have dropped them from my menu.
  2. Cereal-- Since I cannot have milk anymore I have dropped cereal, also I could never eat the amount that was recommended, I always had to have a huge bowl that was about 2 or 3 cups if not more.
  3. Bread--Carbs are my devil and I have to stay away from them if I want to see my waist get smaller
  4. Cookies--I LOVE loved cookies, especially oreos, I could eat a whole row at a time.
  5. Coffee--  I believe that coffee without milk should not be, so since I cannot have milk I have cut coffee from my life, it feels good not to be a slave to the caffeine machine.  Instead I drink a lot of tea, peppermint and green are my favorites.
Foods I Now Love
  1. Sweet Potatoe--   DELICIOUS!  Slice one of these bad boys up and place it on a baking sheet at 450 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.  Flip half way through. 
  2. Eggplant-- I usually roast these with red pepper in some garlic, olive oil and baslamic vinegar.
  3. Eggs and Egg Whites--I used to hate eggs, I would never eat them.  Now I had them for breakfast on the weekend when I have time.  Omelettes are so delicious.  eggs are filled with protein and they taste fantastic.
  4. Oatmeal-- Another great addition for breakfast.  Taste great with nuts and dried fruit or even a drop a vanilla.
  5. Nuts- A handful of nuts gives you a healthy dose of fats.  I love walnuts, pecans, sunflowers and almonds
Foods I Still Don't Like (Hate is such a strong word)
  1. Cottage Cheese-- I tried, I really tried, but I can't.  Many people at my work eat this with fruit, i tried and I can't.
  2. Ham-- I ate ham sandwiches almost everyday for lunch, so I cannot stand ham, in fact I stay away from any cold cuts in general, plus they're full of salt.
  3. Rice--  When I was 4 I told my mom that I hated rice, when i grew up I was going to move to somewhere where there was no rice.  She asked me where this was abd I said HAWAII!  Hahaha.  But honestly, I am not a fan.
I really can't think of anything else that I don't like.

Currently in DC chilling.  The train ride took 24 hrs instead of 15 because of an accident on the tracks. 

Hope everyone is well!

Wow you a strong women to give up coffee! :) I gave up coffee for lent this year and it has been a struggle. Try cottage cheese with a dash of salt, pepper and a few sliced tomatoes, this is one of my favorite ways to eat cottage cheese.
