I live in an area where chlorine tablets are still used to disinfect water because it's a helluva lot safer than drinking the water from the tap.

freshmanweightorbust: I have a good light chicken alfredo recipe, if you're interested.

Oh I remember the snacks I used to love that my mom would buy us for school...

Although I still find them good, I am not tempted at all to buy them. I haven't had these for years:
-Pop tarts
-Gushers
-Dunkaroos
-Freezies
-Lunchables

hmmm...probably soft drinks or other sugared drinks. It's so weird to drink you calories away!

I'm with you. I really dislike using the word never, but I think it might truly apply here. I can't fathom ever, ever drinking any of that stuff. I need to CHEW my calories.

I prefer to chew my calories as well and thus have given up soda, but I make exceptions for Dogfish Head IPA and Smuttynose Porter! (and sometimes Magic Hat #9)

What in the world is Dogfish Head IPA and Smuttynose Porter and Magic Hat #9. Assuming they might be alcoholic beverages..............

I did say I would most likely never drink SUGARY drinks - alcoholic ones - those I will indulge in from time to time.

I think I discovered one this month - those white dinner rolls you buy all in a flat, precooked. Not the crusty kind, the soft doughy kind. Ick, it was just tasteless. I used to LOVE those,and it was just ick.

Sardines! For the life of me, I do not know how I ate those things as a child. Now, I would flip at the sight.

Diet pop or sweetened drinks - I drink my coffee, tea, and water plain. It just tastes better that way to me. It's been 3 years since I quit the diet drinks and even longer since I quit the sweetener in coffee and tea. I do enjoy Miller 64 and an occasional margarita.

When I was in high school I could eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (usually Chunky Monkey) in one go. Now I rarely eat ice cream at all, and the thought of an entire pint of that stuff in one sitting? Nauseating. I also can't eat pizza anymore. Occasionally I'll get a craving for the crusts, but for the rest of it, yuck.

Oh, Diet Coke, the bane of my existence. Easily my worst food/beverage vice. How did you get yourself to quit? I'm so addicted to the stuff.

Chicken alfredo

Bloomin' Onion

Sugary soda

McDonald's fries

I'm okay with giving those foods up forever.

Glory, alfredo was a staple of my diet three years ago. I couldn't imagine my life without my weekly outings to Olive Garden for seafood alfredo with breadsticks on the side. Nowadays, though, I can't even remember the last time I sat down to such a dish, and I don't miss it!
