My favorite healthy food(s) are:
strawberries and blueberries
low fat yogurt
Light vanilla soymilk
Kashi Go Lean cereal
green peppers
whole wheat, low-carb tortillas
laughing cow cheese
low-fat Triscuits
boneless chicken breast
balsamic vinegar
and of course the very healthy, dark chocolate

Just to name a few :cool:

Fruits in general (lychees, Ranier cherries, and watermelon in particular) are my weakness, and I can eat them well past the quantities that could be considered healthy.

Every year, it's become a bit of a tradition that my first pound of Ranier cherries is eaten in a 24 hour period. It aggravates my IBS, and I ration portions more carefully (but still a bit excessively) until the season is over. Luckily it's a short season, because I eat way too many. It usually doesn't hamper weight loss, but it really aggravates the IBS. It's insane to eat something to the point it gives me digestive trouble, but they're just so insanely good.

Pea tendrils (leaves and shoots of garden peas, chinese pea pods or snap peas) are one of my favorite summer veggies. I stir fry it alone or with a bit of meat, or steam it (you can use it like spinache and other greens).

In general, I just love summer and fall, because the farmer's market is like a produce candy store. So much variation, and so many colors, flavors, and textures. Mmmmm.

Oh I'm so glad someone put roasted Cauliflower, I just recently discovered this and i eat it all the time now. I looked up the calorie nutrient information on calorie king and it's fantastic, because i'll eat a whole head for dinner. A large head has TONS of Fiber and Protein..crazy! Tossed with Chili Powder, raw sunflower seeds, garlic salt, YUM!

I lOVE LOVE LOVE Grilled Fresh Green Beans too, I try and get them pretty black sprinkle them with sea salt, lightly of course, and they are my replacement for french fries!!

Pretty much any veggie grilled, I love it year round!

I have recently started using lentils and I love them, they have a nutty peppery flavor, I prefer using the green, they are a little hardier and good to add to salads or pasta, i even put them on a pita with a little Italian dressing. Frankly I'm a fan of the grains, I just started eating quinoa as well, but yeah, they are good.

08-20-2009, 12:46 PM
Hmmmm. I'd have to say Mangos!!! But I guess they are a little on the sugary side :) (even though it's natural sugar)

08-20-2009, 12:59 PM

Banana with almond butter, a titch of honey, and a sprinkling of cinnamon
