I suppose all of us get into habits, and eating is one place where I definitely do.

I have a tendency to get on "kicks", and eat various foods for a bit, then tend to wander away from it.

After speaking with DrMoreau (and taking advice from him and his wife) I tried a few different salsas.
I have gotten into snacking on "chips and salsa" 2-3 times a week, and I stumbled across this awesome salsa the other night, in my local Walmart.


Pace Picante Triple Pepper Salsa

Image


Here are the ingredients (for those interested)

Ingredients: crushed tomatoes (water, concentrated crushed tomatoes), diced tomatoes in tomato juice, fresh jalapeno peppers, green chili peppers, balsamic vinegar, serrano peppers, guajillo and ancho chili peppers, salt, jalapeno pepper puree, dehydrated onions, spice, garlic, distilled vinegar and citric acid.


Its hot, but a great flavor, and not just pure heat for the sake of heat.
If you are into this type of stuff, its definitely worth a try.

I believe its about $3 for a small bottle.



This just happens to be one of the things I am currently into, and I am a bit curious, and want to know of any other "reccomendations" from any of the members here.

Since converting to vegetarianism several months ago, I have drastically changed my diet for the better and have been introduced to a lot of amazing food that I never knew about. Here are just a few examples.

Over the past few months I have been on a huge Middle Eastern food kick. Some of my favorites are falafel, hummus, lentils and tabouli. All taste great and are pretty healthy for you.

I've also been on a vegetable sushi kick too, since I first tried it back in March. I had never had sushi in my life until then and I became absolutely obsessed with it. Keep in mind I just eat "sushi" which has no dead fish in it like it's cousin "sashimi" does.

Nice choice, Cyril. Hummus, wild rice and flat bread were a staple for me years ago. Stuffed grape leaves and tabuli was also good eating.

Falafels - I have to avoid because it is mostly deep fried.

Currently, my favorite snack is either Jerky or dehydrated apple chips. Depending upon whether I need protein or energy.

Lentils are great! My great-grandmother made that when I was younger and I've always liked it.

Favorite foods: not healthy here: I do not eat all that often:

Pizza ( I like locally owned better than national chains)
Burgers ( BK Whopper is my favorite )
Subs ( Jimmy Johns ( its a midwest shop ) Quiznos Honey Bourbon Chicken...yum )
Chicken ( KFC is ok )

I do like salad, I use Balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

If that's the case then she is a very smart woman. Keep her!

My girlfriend has been a vegetarian for almost ten years. She is 32 but has the body of a 19 year old, which makes for a happy Cyril.

i like to spend my free time at HOOTERS. not just for the "room with a View" ideas that i am accused of constantly...but i like hot food. and NOBODY that claims to have hot food, has anything that is actually hot..at least not for people who like hot food. and HOOTERS is the ONLY place with a variety of good hot items on their menu.
that said, i have found two Indian restaraunts in recent months that i have gotten a major desire to check out periodically.

this thread began with a potentially hot salsa...that would be great but, i just don't care for salsa. just not high on my priority list. i will eat it, just not first on my list to gobble up..i prefer sour creme with my chips.

I have a tendency to stay away from sour cream.
It was good years ago, along with the other goodies, but I try and stay away from that now.

The salsa I mentioned, its not just HOT for heats sake, its got a good flavor in my opinion. Hot and a good flavor, and I like that combination.

Speaking of that, I kinda like Hooters too, its been several years since I been there.
I wouldn't mind going there and getting some buffalo shrimp and checking out some gazongas too.......... LOL.

yeah, i just don't care for shrimp at all. but when it comes to HOOTERS..you can't find any better shrimp than there, i think. the buffalo shrimp cooked in 3 mile island sauce with bleu cheese...now that is some good eating...

Ok, here is yet another snack I have been getting down on lately.


Image


Hormel "Compleats" microwave meals.
These are the "healthier" of the bunch, with lower sodium, lower calories, higher protein, etc. etc.

I like the Beef Steak and Peppers, and the Sesame Chicken is good too.
You can find these in Walmart for 2 for $4.

Not terribly expensive, and decent flavor, without the excessive sodium of the regular ones, and meals similar to these.
Note- All these types of meals are fairly high in sodium, but these are among the lower.

These are 2 of my current must haves.

By the way, I have been getting the "medium" flavor of the salsa, its been a long time since I have had the hot.
I tend to like the hot stuff, does anyone here ever get the hot stuff thats pictured?
The medium is damn good, but I think I will be getting the hot next..... :dance:

i like steak extremely well done. i mean, like when i go to GOLDEN CORRAL for breakfast, i dig for the pieces that have been neglected all morning while sitting under the heat lamp..and i love burnt bacon. and i mean that it shatters when you pick it up.
well, last week, i went to a local fav place and they had their incredible meatloaf. i got the egde part and it was burnt. i told myself, "dang it!! they messed up and some burnt meatloaf. now i'm gonna want the burnt meatloaf everytime now".

wish i had some now....

Not me - if it doesn't scream "moo" when I cut into it, it's too done. Well, not rare but medium rare anyway.

I do like to come check out this thread every so often....as I have a horrible time shopping at the grocery store and can never come up with a good list of food that I am looking to eat at the particular time. Everybody does put out some great options...
I also tend to go through stages myself where I crave a certain thing and then I'll get bored with it and move on... and wait for another time in the future when the appeal/craving is back.

That being said....Currently...July 2009....

Image

Its in a pouch, its simple....put it in some bread.....add some stuff...nuff said. Tuna salad is good sometimes as well....

I know some might be expecting this...

ImageImage

But no...its been a long time since I've craved that or eaten it.....

So I'll go with what I'd like to be eating all the time but this shite is freakin expensive!

i like the new PEPSI Throwback.
i don't usually like PEPSI's in cans, but i can drink these. most times with regular PEPSI's, i don't drink the whole thing...
now if the idiots would only bring us back plain Crystal PEPSI, i'd be happy.......i might actually start paying more than .99 cents for the 2 litre if i could get Crystal.

I too like the Throwback PEPSI drink. And I am a fan of CRYSTAL PEPSI too, we are probably in the minority, I thought it tasted it good, plus it had no food coloring, which is a bonus. Lets keep our fingers crossed :D

I use to drink Coca cola more than Pepsi, then my tastes changed, I find PEPSI better, sorry coca cola fans ( Coca Cola tastes good, just not as good,imho).

--------

I am eating veggie Subs at Subway lately, its not that bad.

I think nothing tastes better with a pizza or a burger is a Pepsi, just a great combo,
however these things are keeping Pepcid, and Rolaids in business, hahaa.

Anyone try Panchero's Mexican Grill, they are in about 20 or so U.S. states.
I usually hate going to Mexican restuarants, yet I really like their burritos,
it go for the veggie, it seems healthier and tastier than alot of other fast food joints,imho.

Not a current "food" obsession, but, it helps, check this out.

Never had one of these, but picked one up recently.

Image



This is a "grill-pan".
It has the ridges on it, to aid in grilling (on a stove top), and the grease drips away/under from the food.
Alot of the men here are either single, or married, and im betting the single ones don't do alot of cooking, and the married ones are probably cooked for.
Anyway, its good for grilling vegetables, steaks and other types of meats, and shrimp and the like.
You can pick one of these up at a Wal-Mart or similar store for about $15-$20.

I have only used it once so far, but it was a good weapon to add to my arsenal. :dance:

For those interested, I made steaks and shrimp, and some grilled peppers. :twisted:

I'm sure that chicken I've been craving lately would cook nicely on a grill like that. I think the George Foreman grill is horrible....that one looks way nicer. I dont see the part where the fat or grease etc drops/falls off, looks like everything is contained in there.

Ok, here is yet another snack I have been getting down on lately.

Hormel "Compleats" microwave meals.
These are the "healthier" of the bunch, with lower sodium, lower calories, higher protein, etc. etc.

I like the Beef Steak and Peppers, and the Sesame Chicken is good too.
You can find these in Walmart for 2 for $4.

Not terribly expensive, and decent flavor, without the excessive sodium of the regular ones, and meals similar to these.
Note- All these types of meals are fairly high in sodium, but these are among the lower.

You know I've actually been eating these alot lately and they are great snacks and decently healthy ...except for the fact that I actually checked the nutrition facts on the back of the "regular ones" and they had less fat and less carlories. figure that one out...i was pretty pissed by that. the f@%kers were basically saying it was healthier but was just the same as the regular kind. But true..the sodium was basically lower.

I have been eating a ton of brown rice, and assorted vegetables lately, in fact for months.

Jalapenos, red bell peppers/capsicums, broccoli, chicken and a big dose of mushrooms.


One thing most will note, is if they start getting alot more mushrooms and broccoli in their diet, and do it regularly (daily), after a few weeks of this you will notice some gradual memory improvement.

The anti-oxidants are supposedly the cause, and first hand I* can tell you eating more of these helps.

Not much garbage food here nowadays, although I still have a few slices of pizza a few times a week in the poker games.

A few things I have been eating recently, like I said before I tend to eat in cycles.
I will get on a kick and eat certain things for a bit, then switch off to something else, but these are my latest favorites.



Image


I always had hummus here and there, but have gotten more into it recently, especially the roasted red pepper flavor.
I noticed one brand touting a "Sriracha" flavor, I need to give that a whirl.

Any of you guys like any of the other flavors??? I know I have never tried the garlic flavor hummus.

I've been having these as snacks a fair bit, and they are perfect on the golf course for quick energy.
There are several flavors, but I mostly get the "crunchy peanut butter", but the "chocolate chip peanut crunch" sounds great. Too bad I never see it around here, must be available out west and not so much here. :(



Still eating a ton of rice, green peppers, mushrooms and a few other items.
And of course still some pizza on poker nights frequently. :dance:

Yeah I like hummus - don't always eat it but usually a good appetizer dip at parties. Love the roasted red pepper you have pictured there; other versions I've tried: basil pesto, chipotle, spinach and artichoke, sun dried tomato, and roasted garlic. Honestly, they're all good, so I recommend any of those if you enjoy those "flavors".

I've been on a sushi kick the last few months. Whereas I've hardly ever had it before, now I may grab some twice a month. Really enjoy it quite a bit, but it can get a bit pricey and a lot of times I enjoyed it so much I'm hungry for more.

Funny...My wife always buys that very brand and flavor of hummus. It's in the fridge!

I just started eating those Clif bars, too! The peanut butter ones are good, but I've taken a real liking to the blueberry ones.
