Question Curious: Foods you'll budget for...

Just curious: Is there one food (or several or many or all) that you won't substitute?

I know that a lot of people (though certainly not everyone) change the types of foods they eat in order to help lose weight. Be it a "light" version of a snack, or fat free dairy or lower carb bread, you get the idea.

Is there a food that you'll budget for that you can -never- do "light" of?

Mine is maple syrup. 100% pure New England maple syrup.

IMHO a small serving of real maple syrup is worth more than a gallon of that fake light "maple syrup stuff" in the stores.

So what about you guys?

Hm. Probably bread(the good thing being that I prefer the whole grain sort to the processed, white one, so as long as I eat in moderation, I should be alright).
And anyway, you don't take away bread from a Frenchie if you want to live.

The only one would be ground beef... I have never been on a plan that didn't include ground beef.

I budget for organic veggies/fruits and cage free/wild meat poultry although the quantities are a lot smaller than those that are not. It's tough, but I try to make it happen at least 85% of the time.

chocolate! If I eat it, it's got to be a high quality one. I rarely indulge in it, but it's always on my mind!

I don't believe in 'light' foods for the most part. The just fill it with other things not good for you. The exception is light caesar dressing on salad.

But one thing I will not cut out of the diet, even though natural is way better for me is Jif Creamy peanut butter. I've tried the naturals and I HATE THEM. The natural with honey is OK, but my peanut butter needs a bit of sweetness to it.

Creamer for coffee. I cut back to one cup a day for most days, but I just can't drink black coffee or coffee with milk.

Dark chocolate, the darker the better. Also, Avocados. I am never giving them up. They're high cal, but also something I'll accomodate for.

Gosh, I have so many... real sour cream, real cheese (I do low fat occasionally, but never fat free), real butter, real eggs, real peanut butter, real chocolate... I have these things sparingly, but I won't compromise on them. One percent milk is as low as I can go. I wouldn't compromise on maple syrup, either.

Well marbled beef, fatty lamb or duck
Sweet potato fries
Macaroons
Brownies
Peanut butter

If I am actually going to eat these foods, it is worth the extra calories to eat normal versions. I prefer whole foods and full fat anyway, for health AND taste, and these are all worth it
