10 YOU Challenges: 5 Foods

29 Aug

Here is the next installment of the You challenge. Food this week. This is actually really hard. I love food. I love dessert. How do I narrow it down?? This is what I have come up with:


1. Lets state the obvious. ICE CREAM. I definitely go in waves with what treat I like to have. Years ago it was cupcakes. Cookies and brownies took over after that. Ice cream has been around for probably a year. Luckily enough Dan keeps a tight leash on the pints so I don’t go overboard. If I had my way I could put down a whole pint every night!

2. PIZZA. I love pizza. I like homemade pizza the best. I can use whatever ingredients I like! I made a pizza last night (I almost took a picture but didn’t. Then it was gone before I knew it!) I always like trying different pizza in different places I visit.

3. SALSA. You can use salsa with so many things. Of course I love it with Mexican food. I even put it on my sweet potatoes in lieu of sour cream. I like to make it homemade with fresh ingredients but TJ’s is my go-to for salsa!

4. SALADS. Not really a traditional salad with lettuce and carrots. I like lots of stuff in my salad. Quinoa, garbonzos, sunflower seeds, lots of veggies, avocado, strawberries, beets. Not all at once but a variety. You get my point!!:)

5. BREAKFAST. I am so lucky to live in Portland where there are a plethora of breakfast places that are fantastic. I don’t go out very often because I am typically training but sometimes I do. I love scrambles mostly with a biscuit!


Those are some of my favorite!!!

What are some over your favorite foods??

    You and Nik are like 2 peas in a pod! But he thinks it is blasphemy that ice cream is over pizza.

    I love that you grouped your foods to include more of them!! I tried to do the same thing:) I wish I wasn’t lactose intolerant and could have real ice cream. I LOVE real ice cream and miss it immensely!!

      I might die if I were lactose intolerant!!:) Coconut milk ice cream is pretty good though!

        Coconut milk ice cream is pretty good and so is the Breyer’s lactose free, but many of the others aren’t that good.

    Breakfast food is my FAV!!! I love to cook breakfast, so we actually don’t eat it out that often. I love to experiment and try different pancakes, muffins, scrambles, etc when I can. We often have breakfast for dinner during the week because it is so easy to throw together!!

    LOL. Great list. I liked how you picked Breakfast as a food! Well played. I would have the same picks but have to work cheescake onto my list too.
