How do you store it? I always find it tastes different once you freeze it.

My favorite is a salad of chopped red cabbage, cauliflower, red peppers, carrots and cucumbers. Mix them up with a dressing of 1 tsp olive oil and two tsp seasoned rice vinegar (garlic flavored) and a dash of basil. I make lots - without the dressing - and it lasts for a few days. My kids like it too but they add a bit of feta.

Right there with you K8-EEE! When everything is prepped and ready, I can eat salads twice a day, every day (my favorite of late includes chopped nectarines, feta and roasted beets with lettuce and pumpkin seeds). And I even love to shop for produce (I'm also fussy)--but coming home and unpacking that mountain that needs to be washed and dried...oy.

I try very hard to eat seasonally, which helps with the flavor fatigue. If you only eat peaches in season, then yes, you'll eat them all the time for about a month, but then you likely won't eat them again for almost a year. And you move on to whatever is in season apples, winter squash, brussels sprouts...yum.

But of the things you can eat all the time? I never tire of arugula or broccoli rabe. Or ice cream. :P

English muffins seem to be popular.. and I agree I could totally eat a whole wheat english muffin with strawberry jam (or any jam for that matter) for breakfast every day. Fruit also, I have to eat fresh fruit every day or I get a craving for something sweet. Umm I love sushi I could eat that every day.. thats probably about it though, as far as healthy items. Clessofme I loveee rice krispie treats but I prefer home made ones hot out of the oven.

I eat them just about every day. On sandwiches, in salads, in pitas, anywhere I can put them. Been eating them almost every day for years and haven't tired of them yet.
