A: is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?

Honey Crisp!  I know they are the post expensive but they are so worth it.  They are generally large and super duper juicy/sweet.  If you get the chance to try one, do it!  

B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?

Homemade white roll, yum!  I love fresh baked rolls with melted butter and a little touch of jam.  They are actually pretty easy to make as well.  

C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)

Currently, I don’t eat much cereal.  I use to before I looked at carbs, sugars and calories.  Now that I care about all of that nonsense I usually have cereal every couple of weeks.  If you are looking for a healthy yet tasty cereal give Kashi Cinnamon Heart a try.

D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?

Chocolate covered with pretty sprinkles please!  It has been a long while since I have had a donut but every now at then the sugary goodness is much needed.

E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?

I LOVE eggs.  I would say the kind I eat the most is hard boiled.  Second place would have to be scrambled.  Third, poached!  I have eaten 3 eggs today!

 F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?

Greek yogurt.  I will say that it took me awhile to go use to it but now that I eat it pretty much every day, I love it.  I buy the plain Greek yogurt and add my own mix-ins.   

Some examples/variations: 

Peaches and cinnamon
Strawberries and honey
Honey and brown sugar
Pineapple and honey

You get the idea.  You can pretty much add any variation. 

G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?  

As of late, Whole Food, Fresh Market and Wal-Mart pretty much have everything I need.   I will occasionally wonder over to Kroger.

H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?

Ehhh..I don’t drink hot beverages all that often.  When I do, I would have to say my favorite is hot chocolate with a dollop of whip cream please!

I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping

Chocolate chip! No toppings needed.

 J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?

Occasionally I eat sugar free red raspberry jelly.  

 K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?

Same as mentioned above, Kashi Cinnamon Heat.

L: is for Lunch, what was yours today?

Cobb salad, which included lettuce, tomatoes, bacon bits, hardboiled egg, avocado and fat free ranch dressing.

 M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?

Oatmeal!  When I eat my oatmeal hot I microwave it, I don’t make it on the stove top.  Quaker quick cooking oats with water are my favorite, of course with my own mix-ins.

N: is for nutrients, do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?

CARBS! I love anything with a carb. =) Bread, pasta, name it, I love it!

O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use?

Smart Balance Vegetable Oil or EVOO.

Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?

Ah man, I have to choose?  I am a huge fan of making up my own variations.  My favorite kind as of late is overnight oats.  Never heard of them?

Here is my go to recipe:

There is nothing I want LESS on a hot summer morning than piping hot oatmeal.   I generally want something cool and sweet.  Walks in, overnight oats!  They are prepped the night before and sit in the refrigerator overnight.  In the morning you give them of quick stir and then add your mix-ins.  My favorite lately has been sliced strawberries with a dollop of Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dreams. HEAVEN!

Never heard of Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dreams?

You can find it at Wal-Mart.   It looks like this:

R: is for roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?

Hmm..I am not much of a roaster now that I think about it.  Chicken?  

S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?

Turkey!  I am drawn to turkey sandwiches more than anything else, who knows why.  When we go out to a good ol’ American restaurant that is usually the first thing I look for.

 T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?

Ahh…not too well.  =) I usually just plan one snack which is usually a protein bar but that is about it.  Kyle and I tend to find something quick at the airport like Subway or Quiznos. 

U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?

Peanut butter and dill pickle sandwich.  I don’t think it is weird at all (!!) but Kyle and many others think it is pretty off the wall.  Blame my Mom and Dad for that one.

V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take?

Prenatal gummies
Calcium gummies
Vitamin E
Vitamin B

W: is for wasabi, yay or nay?

Yay, on the rare occasion that Kyle and I go out to Sushi.  He has been working hard on getting me to like it.

X: is for XRAY. if we xrayed your belly right now, what food would we see?

My cobb salad that was mentioned above.

Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood?

Too much….
Peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches
Green olives
Chips and garlic dip
Swiss steak
Otter pops

That is just a few.

Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it?

Sautéed in a tiny bit of butter with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
