Do you have a favorite food or a food that you would award a blue ribbon to? Is there a food that you look forward to eating no matter the time of year or time of day? This question was harder to answer for myself then I had initially thought. When I thought about doing a post on a favorite food I got stuck.
What is my favorite food, or do I even have a favorite? I could be all magnanimous and say my favorite food is carrots but you guys might not believe me. Or I could tell you my favorite food is brown rice, but I’d be lying.
I’ve been thinking about this all day and realized that I don’t just have one favorite food, but rather some favorite foods from different categories. When I was morbidly obese my favorite food was chocolate. Chocolate is probably not the best favorite food to have!
I didn’t have favorite foods in categories such as:
I really only liked chocolate, and the more chocolate I ate during the day the less of those other foods I ate. These days I still do like chocolate, but it isn’t a mainstay of my diet. Now, I really do have some favorite foods in the categories above. I realize that I didn’t have to give up chocolate, but instead I added in lots of other yummy foods into my list of favorites.
So here are my favorites in those categories:
Vegetables – Asparagus
Grains/Beans – Black Beans
Meats – Chicken Parmesan (I know it’s a recipe!)
Fruits – Watermelon
Dairy – Greek Yogurt (I hate milk.)
It was hard to just list one food, as there are many foods in all the categories except dairy that I really like.
Are you up for sharing your favorite foods in all or some of those categories? I think it’d be fun to see what everyone loves! Diane
