I've been wanting to start writing a bit about our lifestyle involving food. I'm just not sure where to start nor do I really have a lot of time for it yet. But I saw this 'food survey' on someone else's blog (bananaoats here on wordpress....not sure how to put in a link yet...I'll try) and thought maybe I could get started with this? <a href="http://bananaoats.wordpre.com" title="bananaoats"
Coke or Pepsi? Blue Sky Natural Soda
I use to be a Pepsi girl. LOVED the stuff! I started giving up the stuff even before our whole foods switchover because I realized on my own that it was doing a number on my digestive system....so now when I have a Pepsi craving...and YES I still get them even 6 years later...I grab a blue sky cola. Their Root Beer is good too.
Lemonade or Fruit Punch?
Lemonade. I don't imagine I'll ever come across a natural fruit punch.
Caramel Apple or Cotton Candy?
Caramel Apple. Its hard to come by caramel that's 'natural' without added flavors but we have found it on occasion.
Butterfinger or Snickers? I can't have either one. WAY WAY WAY too many additives there. I used to LOVE Snickers though. Now we buy Angell bars, which are a more natural candy bar. They are very yummy and come in 3 varieties. Of course I prefer the one made with milk chocolate!
Pudding and Jell-O?
Pudding. We make our own or buy a natural brand at Wegman's. We can't do Jello. I was never a big fan of it but do occaionally miss it when I'm in the mood for some summer picnic salads that would call for a box mixed in.
Turkey or Chicken?
I love them both but chicken is the one I prefer most often. Grass Fed without the hormones of course!
American or Provolone Cheese?
Provolone I guess....but prefer cheddar. American is a big no-no......figures...American cheese is just full of added artificial stuff....leave it to the 'good ole Amercian Diet' to even mess up cheese!
Crackers or Cookies?
C is for COOKIE....that's good enough for me!
Pretzels or Chips?
Chips. Can't get enough of them.....which I hate cause even though theres several out there without the added MSG and other artificial stuff, most are till made with GMO potatoes.....
Mexican food or Japanese food?
That's a hard call. Japanese Sushi or Mexican anything for me please....but not too hot....
Chinese food or Italian food?
Italian. I LOVE LOVE LOVE pasta and it's a little easier to throw together than slicing up all those vegetables for a homemade stir fry...well, maybe not....I guess they are about the same if you make the sauce from scratch. We can NEVER eat Chinese out....LOADED with MSG and other neurotoxins but we can usually find an italian restaurant with an alfredo or marinara sauce we can eat if they make it from scratch.
Pie or Cake? CAKE!!!!!! Oh, now I want some.....
Ice cream or Cookies?
I prefer the icecream but my personal aversion to dairy makes me choose cookies....but I do give in on too many occasions only to pay the price later (sinuses and digestion issues)
Pasta or Pizza?
Huh? No way can I choose.
Soda or Juice?
Juice.....freshly squeezed pleae.
Chocolate Bars or Chocolate Truffles?
Truffles are too hard to find in an organic not filled with artificial garbage variety that I could ever afford. So it's chocolate bars. I just found a dark chocolate that has salt and almonds that almost makes me want to say see ya later milk chocolate! (It's obviously better for me too!)
Apples or Bananas?
Bananas because I like them in anything....by themselves(as long as they are not overly ripe) in pies, cakes, pudding and even my oatmeal! But apples I only do raw or in a very smooth applesauce. No pie or dumpling for me....I know, totally unamerican, huh?
But I'll pass by either for some fresh berries!
Salad or Soup?
Winter - Soup
Fall or Spring....either
Cauliflower or Broccoli?
Broccoli! YUM!!!!! (although I'd prefer brussels sprouts!)
Onion Rings or French Fries?
Blizzard or McFlurry?
EWWWWWW. No thank you. We have totally banned fast foods forever. Homemade icecream made by my lovely 17 year old, thank you! (yes....I pay the price but her icecream is soooooo worth it!)
Fried or Poached Eggs?
Fried. In a sandwich....put the egg on toast with some mayo or ketchup....cheese to on days I want to clog my sinuses. Add a nice fresh slice of tomato.
Crepes or Pancakes?
Crepes. No, pancakes. No, crepes. Nope....pancakes..... sigh.
Hashbrowns or Roasted Potatoes?
Fried potatoes. I always make extra 'baked potatoes' in the crockpot when we have baked potatoes and fry them up in coconut oil or butter the next day for breakfast. There's some sitting on my counter right now. YAY!
Oatmeal or Cereal?
Most of the time I'd have to say oatmeal. As long as it's not too mushy. But I do like a nice bowl of cereal for a snack sometimes too.
