Good Morning! I just came across this survey at My Food N’ Fitness Diaries, and it looks like a lot of fun!
1. Mexican food or Italian food?
It depends – if I’m up North then Italian definitely….but the Mexican food here in Texas is amazing! Especially the taco salads in the crunchy tortilla bowls
2. Chips or french fries?
Sweet potato fries – so good!
3. Almond butter or peanut butter?
Oh that’s a tough one…probably peanut butter, but almond butter has been growing on me – it’s really good with bananas!
4. Cake or brownie?
Cake! Specifically, ice cream cake. The kind with Oreos in the crust.
5. Strawberries or blueberries?
Strawberries, definitely. I like blueberry flavored things, but they’re not my favorite fruit to eat by themselves.
6. Thin crust pizza or deep dish pizza?
Usually thin crust, but I occasionally indulge in deep dish when I’m craving something really hearty.
7. Coffee or tea?
Coffee! But I drink more cups of tea than coffee every day, because of the caffeine difference. Usually plain green tea (drinking it right now!) or a fruity herbal tea.
8. Chicken or steak?
Oh, definitely chicken! I didn’t start liking red meat until the end of high school, and I had my first steak when Bud cooked one for me about 2 years ago. I’ll eat it if it’s served to me, but I’d choose chicken over any meat/poulty. And it’s cheaper, too!
9. Milk chocolate or dark chocolate?
Dark chocolate . Although I do prefer the regular Reese’s cups over their dark chocolate kind…
10. Apple or orange?
Apples. I apples! And oranges get stuck in my teeth!
That was fun! It’s really interesting how much my tastebuds have changed over the past few years – if I took this survey when I was in middle school, probably about half of my answers would be different!
Last night’s dinner:
I didn’t really feel like cooking, so I put together a few random things…
- Baby spinach
- 1/2 tbsp. tomato basil almonds
- 1 tbsp. Newman’s Own Lite Honey Mustard dressing (this dressing tastes good on everything!)
A bowl of soup
I found this can lurking in the back of the pantry…it’s a really tasty soup (the dumplings are definitely a winner). I only put about half of the broth in my bowl, to cut down on sodium.
The rest of the sweet potato chips I made for lunch. I crisped them up in the oven for a few minutes, and they tasted a lot better than the others (except I did burn a few this time…).
A pretty random dinner, but it worked!
Overnight apple cinnamon oats!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 small granny smith apple, chopped
- 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 tbsp. flaxseed
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Topped with a spoonful of peanut butter this morning – this oatmeal is scrumptious!
