I never thought of peanut butter as a healthy food, but I only like Jiff creamy and lots of it.

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

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.

Barbara, where do you buy your low-sugar nonfat frozen yogurt and what brand is it?

I have so many, but if I had to pick just one I'd say cucumbers. I feel so refreshed after eating one.
