The Foodie’s Alphabet
Thanks to Janetha at the meals & moves blog for this great post. I had to copy it because it was fun to read and even more fun to complete!
A is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?
Gala….sweet, crisp, never tart!
B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?
Vince’s Spaghetti Garlic Bread. If you live in theSouthBayand haven’t tried this decadent delight, you have no idea what you’re missing. Best if dipped in a vat of their meat sauce.
C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!) Currently–
I guess the most recent cereal I’ve had is Kashi Go Lean….140 calories, 13 grams of protein, plenty of fiber….what more does a fitness-minded girl need?
YUM YUM YUM <slurp, crunch> YUM!
D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?
A cake donut with frosting and SPRINKLES!! Rainbow sprinkles, if you reallywannaknow!
E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?
Scrambled, well-done. Though, at my last job, they served them a little underdone and they were so creamy good with salt & pepper. I think they must’ve added crème fraiche or cream to the eggs.
F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?
Faux eggs baby – EGG BEATERS!!
G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?
Ralphs (I’m mayor of Ralphs 87 on Foursquare – that takes effort!) and Costco. Though, if I hear that a certain chain is having a sale on Diet Mt. Dew, I’m there!
H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?
If I wasn’t counting calories, thick hot chocolate – almost like a warm pudding. I had the most amazing hot chocolate when I was in France, I can still taste it 10 years later!
……who else is drooling?? Oh, just me? Damn.
I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
Just one?? Really? Umm…Cookies & Cream with thick hot fudge! (Can you tell I like my chocolate thick, warm and creamy? That’s what she said…)
OHHH BABY!! Give it to me!!
J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?
I don’t eat them, but I remember my Grandma used to make her own jams and jellies and serve them with homemade white bread at every meal. I adored her strawberry jam – especially on a piece of her fresh & fluffy white bread, smeared by my Mom (Mom does such a good job getting the jam to every corner and edge!).
K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?
See “C” for cereal….Go Lean or Go Home!
L: is for Lunch, what was yours today?
Liquid lunch…Chocolate Shakeology.
M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
Hmmm….I don’t microwave much (my heating pads get microwaved more than anything!). Hmmm…I do like SmartOnes frozen meals.
N: is for nutrients, do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?
Well, the baker in me says “CARBS AND FAT”! …but I do love a good juicy burger, eggs, and peanut butter (PB is an acceptable protein, isn’t it?)
O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use?
Canola to bake, walnut or olive on my salads, Castrol for my car.
P: is for protein, how do you get yours?
Have I mentioned how I like eggs? Eggs, fish, chicken, oh yeah, and PEANUT BUTTERRRRRR!
Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?
Warm, with cinnamon and sweet & low. Or, cold with chocolate protein powder.
R: is for roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?
Fake Food = Marshmallows….Real Food = Sweet Potatoes
Put real and fake food together and you have a winning combination!
S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?
Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly on TOAST!
T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?
I freak out about getting in enough exercise to be able to accommodate the extra calories I’m going to be consuming. Last business trip I went on, I tried to pack protein powder to take with me. It leaked – thankfully I had it in a bag inside of a bag, but it turned out to be a mess.
U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?
I’m probably considered weird that I don’t like my food to “mix”. I keep my foods separated and would be very happy with the cafeteria-style plates at home!
V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take?
Daily Multi-Vitamin, Calcium, CLA and Fish Oil (when I can remember it!)
W: is for wasabi, yay or nay?
X: is for XRAY. if we xrayed your belly right now, what food would we see?
A cookie monster.
Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood?
Lucky Charms cereal, Peanut Butter & Saltine Crackers, Graham Crackers and Frosting
Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it?
I love Zucchini Bread…..but I probably most commonly prepare it roasted in the oven or on a grill.
