Oh god, I forgot about faire foods. The state, ren, or local fair is one place I'll eat just about anything and damn the consequence (and every year I go home and embrace the hydrocodone.) The worst offender was the state fair before I left Dallas: funnel cake, fried oreos, fried beer, chili in a bread bowl, fried milky way, fried something-my-dad-bought, and enough dr. peppers to kill a pony.
I also forgot about some of my childhood treats.
Biscuits and Goop: canned biscuits dipped in a mixture of "maple" syrup and peanut butter.
Christmas breakfast the year I was 12: chocolate pancakes with candy canes mashed into the batter, drenched in chocolate syrup and cool whip, served with chocolate milk, chocolate chip awfuls, and chocolate dipped bacon. I loved it, but I chowed down on much healthier fare for the rest of the day because the idea of more sugar made me nauseous.
A concoction I used to make and down before my folks noticed: parmesan cheese sawdust and chocolate syrup, swirled and licked out of my hand.
I'm also sure I ate crayons and god only knows what all else when I was a toddler. According to mom, my favorite food wasn't food.
Mr Freeze Ice Pops (Aka flavoured frozen water). The raspberry flavour was blue!!!
Cheese sandwich (on white bread), microwaved.
Sugar flavoured microwave pop corn.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
I used to eat a particular brand of frozen chicken pot pie for dinner probably 3 times a week. Here's the nutrition breakdown:
I'd eat that JUST FOR DINNER. And I'd wash it down with full-sugar sodas. Yeah, no wonder I gained 40lbs in 2 years. Hindsight: 20/20.
Also, for my birthday last year, I single-handedly ate two whole 9" ice cream cakes within about 2 weeks. One was Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, one was Black Raspberry Chocolate Chunk. These were the most decadent cakes I've ever eaten in my life, and I am actually really, really bummed out I can't get another one this year (because I'd keel over dead).
I also gained about 15lbs last december just from baking sheet after sheet of cookies. I found the best cookie recipe IN THE WORLD (which I am not sharing because I am not a sadist... much) and seriously I just could not stop eating them. SO GOOD. At this point, though, I'm glad I did it, because that gain was the impetus for starting Primal.
Anyone else top their toast w/ sugar and cinnamon as kids?
Me me me me me!!
And then Mom would cut it into strips and stand it up in a big bowl of Quaker Oats with another thick layer of cinnamon sugar covering Parkay margarine lakes. The top of my oatmeal looked like something out of a Thousand Islands travel brochure.
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
I'm very lucky I never liked batter, so never had potato scallops (slices of potato dipped in batter and deep fried. vomit!) and what we call dagwood dogs (the hot dog dipped in batter and fried. double vomit!) I also never liked chip boodies (crisps in bread). But I did love tomato sauce (ketchup) sandwiches.
Edit: nevermind, I see it says "garbage plate" and I think thats about right. Gross.
i was agonna guess "vomit plate." ew. i feel queasy just looking at it.
as a kid we used to get this stuff called "goobers" which was peanut butter and jelly, striped, in a jar. also cracker jacks.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
