    My food is too good!!!! how can i ever go back?

    OK not that I would want to however after two years of my "fad" diet, i just cannot ever see myself going back to the way I used to eat. Strangely enough my WOE before was not horrible, i have just gotten better at pretty much everything.

    some days random thoughts of old school food come in my head and about once a year i will attempt to replicate said experience, however after so much FAIL i now know it is better for me to re-invent whatever it is.

    does anyone else have a food they used to love that they now know they would be sadly disappointed with if they had it now.

    for instance, cinnamon rolls. they used to be a good goodness. Now i cant imagine how i ever really liked those _ ok unfair as i gave up wheat two years ago and it doesnt really help the issue. but today i prefer what we call ginger muffins. Cinnamon, ginger saffron, clove and the standard coconut/lacuna flour muffin mix ( my standard = my chicka's secret recipe, LOL )

    Chilli, Lasagne, Curry... all of them ruined by the need to rebuild them from scratch.

    DAMN MY LIFE!!!!

    Primal made me love chili, personally. Once I realized it didn't have to have beans in it, I was much more willing to embrace it, and now I make it once a month. :P

    I do miss lasagna a little, I was thinking about trying to make it with zucchini.

    I've had a number of old "favorites" that just don't seem as satisfying anymore. I actually enjoy a baked sweet potato with coconut oil & cinnamon more than any sweet pastry, though I only seem to crave the pastries! Pizza is not as fulfilling or tasty as I once perceived it to be. There are some small things, like pfefferneuse, that do not lose their amazing flavor, but those are pretty compact treats to begin with, so perhaps that's why.

    Food with flour mostly tastes like flour to me. Eating bread, I get distracted by the smell of it, which I don't find appealing anymore. Sourdough bread still smells amazing to me though.

    depends on your needs zucs can work but....

    eggplant... slice, salt, wait, rinse, par bake to dry.

    perfection, do not over salt the dish.

    salting the eggplant draws out the water intil they are pretty much hockypucks. you can do it the morning before work and rinse when you get home.

    Mmm eggplant lasagna. =)

    I agree the bread aisle at the store smells kind of off putting to me now. o.o I am finally at a point in my life where I am not compulsively hungering for bread, and i find it bad-smelly instead of yum smelly. I am not sure if it is the flour or a yeast smell maybe?

    I would love to get my hands on a good greek or italian sourdough actually from greece or italy though. *daydreams*

    yeah, at first I missed not having oreos or other cookies, but now I can't imagine eating them. I used to have Biscoffs (the Delta Airlines spice cookies) or a Scottish butter cookie every day with my morning coffee. Now I don't miss them. I think all I would taste would be the chemicals. I'm not inclined to try.

    Had some skinless, boneless chicken breast the other day...we felt like we should use them up, they've been in the freezer for months. Bleah. What tasteless stuff that is. and to think, we ate it 5 days a week. Ugh. No more.

    Biscoff, I used to beg for extras. Women rarely can deny me anything so i could get the equivalent of a box each flight.

    Damn those used to taste great.

    chicken LOL

    dont make me chicken, you wouldnt like me when im chicken.

    chicken makes me hungry. i love dark meat ( no white any more) but i still need a steak to wash it down, so what is the point

    Hey, Quelsen! There's a bunch of women in a cave wondering where you've been--better go say HI.

    As to your topic, I used to be a huge bread man. I ate probably 8-10 slices a day in various forms. What I take great delight in now is eating at a restaurant and piling up all the bread that comes with my order and marveling that I used to eat it all and more. We ate at IHOP the other day. My omelet was accompanied by 4 pieces of toast and 2 pancakes--it felt really good seeing them still there when I left!

    The only remnant of my old life I feel the need to re-invent from time-to-time is ice cream. Lately, I've been mushing a really ripe banana in a bowl and stirring in a scoop of baking cocoa and a handful of frozen blueberries--a pretty decent substitute.

    Sorry to break it to you, but IHOP puts their pancake batter into their eggs to make their omelets fluffier.

    That is why I never order omelet or scrambled egg when dining out, I only go for poached egg. I'm convinced that most places add flour to the egg mixture, because, well, it's obvious...

    So I only eat scrambled/omelet at home when I can make it myself.

    As for what I miss, I'm not sure anymore. But I've noticed my taste-buds are now very happy with food in it's natural tasting form. Meat baked/roasted/barbequed in heavy sauces make me queasy and do nothing for me now. Anything wheat-based makes me bloated for a couple of days, and my tolerance for "sweet" has dropped greatly.
