The ABCs of Food

I totally stole this from D, who stole it from Karen. But really, we're all nice people and we don't steal, we share, right? Anyway … here goes:

A is for Apple. What's your favorite variety?

B is for Bread. Regardless of nutrition, calories or whole grains, what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?

C is for Cereal. What is your favorite?
Homemade granola.

D is for donuts. You might not currently be eating them, but what kind of you fancy?
Anything cream-filled.

E is for Eggs. How would you like yours prepared?
Either an omelette or deviled.

F is for Fat-Free. What's your favorite fat-free product?
I pay no attention to whether an item is fat-free or not. Been there, done that.

G is for Groceries. Where do you purchase yours?
Kroger, Sam's Club, the Amish market down the road.

H is for Hot Beverages. What is your favorite hot drink?
Coffee. Black. Hazelnut flavored.

I is for Ice Cream. Pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
Vanilla (the good kind with the flecks of vanilla) topped with peanut butter and strawberry jam.

J is for Jams or Jellies. Do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?
I do eat them. Homemade strawberry jam, peach preserves and apple jelly.

K is for Kashi. Name your favorite Kashi product.
I don't buy Kashi products. In fact, I try not to buy "products" period. (And I have another post in the works about that.)

L is for Lunch. What was yours today?
Romaine with onion, tomato, sweet pickles and farmer's cheese, dressed with olive oil and vinegar.

M is for Microwave. What is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
Um … warmed-up coffee?

N is for Nutrients. Do you like carbs, fats or proteins best?
Despite the fact that protein is always the smallest percentage of my daily intake, I like it best.

O is for Oil. What kind do you like to use?

P is for Protein. How do you get yours?
Meat, chicken, cheese, dairy, eggs. Not whey powder.

Q is for Quaker. How do you like your oats?
Either in homemade granola or cooked with apples and topped with brown sugar and cinnamon.

R is for Roasting. What is your favorite thing to roast?
Potatoes cut into eighths, tossed with olive oil, coarse salt, garlic and pepper. Better than french fries!

S is for Sandwich. What's your favorite kind?
Grilled cheese.

T is for Travel. How do you handle eating while traveling?
I'm trying to stick with my plan and not look at a trip as a vacation from healthful meals.

U is for Unique. What is one of your weirdest food combinations?
Peanut butter, lettuce and mayonnaise sandwich. I think they're wonderful, but most people turn their noses up when I mention them. (It's my mother's legacy.)

V is for Vitamins. What kind do you take?

W is for Wasabi. Yay or nay?

X is for X-ray. If we X-rayed your belly right now, what food would we see?
Water. And coffee. Are those foods? Heh.

Y is for Youth. What food reminds you of your childhood?
Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake and my dad's homemade pizza.

Z is for Zucchini. How do you prepare it?
Zucchini relish and zucchini bread.

Should you decide to do this as well, leave a comment so we can go read your food alphabet!

I'm with you on the favorite sandwich, grilled cheese rules! Of course I'm extending that to include Tuna Melts, and my favorite weird food combo - a grilled cheese (Swiss or Extra Sharp Cheddar) with bacon, onion, and ... of course... peanut butter!

What's up with grilled cheese lately. Saw a big write up about it on a website, which got us looking for the best grilled cheese in Atlanta, which spurred my colleague to go home and make a great one - and then rub it in by texting a picture to me.

Since the, narry (or is it nary?) a day goes by that there isn't some reference to grilled cheese.

I think it's some kind of message from the universe that I should definitely eat one...but I think I'll wait until after my physical tomorrow - no need to pump up my cholesterol with cheese before heading into the doctor!

Hey, Denise, I hope your doctor visit goes well, and that you get to enjoy a big honkin' grilled cheese sammy afterward!
