I'm sure this has been discussed here before ... but I was thinking about my go-to food and wanted to see what others think of as theirs.
By go-to food I mean something you always have on hand, something that seems central to your weight-loss plan or process, maybe something that you didn't eat (or didn't eat much) before you started watching what you eat.
For me, it's apples
I love apples. They are kind of a miracle food for me. Sweet, crunchy, satisfying. Easy to carry around, long shelf-life. I always keep apples on hand, in the office and at home, and reach for one for dessert or whenever I feel hungry between meals. I sometimes eat three apples in a day.
There is a runner-up - a wonderful cheese called nabulsi that I get at a middle-eastern market. I think it's Lebanese, though there are similar cheeses all over the mediterranean. It's a firm curd cheese, brined for a wonderful salty flavor, and just 80 calories an ounce. It's the runner-up only because I don't eat it as often as my beloved apples. But a sliced apple paired with a few slices of nabulsi is a magnificent snack that can keep me going for hours ...
what about you?
