Food Fight and Failure

Today is one of those days that I really don't want to think too hard.  There are quite a few F words.  Some good, some not so good.  I came up with a simple F!  So simple yet so delicious.  Food is designed to be nutrition for our bodies.  You know, those little green things called vegetables.  I admit that I don't really like to eat vegies.  Not that I don't like them but they are much more work to have to chop up.  If I want to eat nutritiously, I choose fruit.  I love fruit.  Much more than vegies. 

What about those not so nutritional foods?  Like chocolate cake, twix bars, fried chicken...those yummy but not so good for you foods.  Yes, I love them.  I mean really love them.  The hard part is trying to balance all of those nutritional foods and junk food.  The junk food far outweighs the nutritional foods in my daily diet.  I try, I really do but I fail.  Another F word.  I really am a failure when it comes to eating healthy.  It's hard.  There are so many yummy foods out there.  However, it is essential to eat healthy so I will continue to fight off the junk food when I can.

So, food fight.  What are your favorite foods you absolutely adore?  Healthy or non-healthy.  Mine are blueberries (I love them), cheesecake (I adore it), mashed potatoes and gravy (I could eat this 3 meals a day), oatmeal (a very heart healthy food), hash brown casserole (just yum!) and pastries (pretty much all of them except for fiilled ones).  I do have 2 healthy items in my list.

What foods do you not like?  I really hate tomatoes (ick), mushrooms (too rubbery), and fish tacos (I have never tried them but how come I feel nauseous just looking at them in a picture?).  There are many more but it's too early to think of icky foods. 

Now I am very hungry thanks to this post.  As my daughter would say "I love food".  I have to agree with her.  But then she eats much more variety than I do.  Enjoy your food today!



  1. fun with food, eh? don't like frankfurters for so many reasons, fave is choc chip cookies! why can't they be good for you?

    ps - move your followers to the top of your blog list (if they see it, they will come!)

  2. Fish tacos are amazing, IF they are done right. Tip: never get them from a fast food place, or you will never like them ;)

    I don't eat many veggies, but it has little to do with taste and everything to do with texture. People will ADD tend to have texture aversions, and I have many, and not just with food.

    My junk food faves are probably cupcakes, and healthy, I love red, orange and yellow sweet peppers, especially in black bean hummus (it has a smoother texture than traditional hummus, which I can't eat bcs of the texture)

  3. Great minds think alike! I did food for my "F" post, too. I LOVE cheesecake! Yummy! I've never had fish tacos before...just sounds weird, but I've heard a few others say they're good.

  4. Chocolate anything. Ice cream. Brownies. Fudge. . . . but I have healthy foods I love, too. Pineapple (fresh or dried), nectarines, berries of any sort, seafood, edamame, broccoli.

    Things I won't eat -- liver, beets. *shudder*
