Mother Marjorie has eaten yogurt daily for years and years and years. Its nutritious, good for your digestion and promotes better immunity. Favorite flavors? I love'em all! Strawberry Cheesecake, Key Lime, Lemon Chiffon, Strawberry, Strawberry-Banana, and Blueberry.

Mother Marjorie feels that the daily helping of yogurt and 3-5 times/week Ruby Red Grapefruit consumption has kept her "cold-free" for several years.

My current favorite tea is:

I have found good soup and a salad to be a nutritious and general low-calorie combination, and I like it. :drool:

GASP! :eek:

I ate one Krispy Kreme around five years ago. It was so greasy it made me feel nauseated :sad:

The closest thing to a donut I've eaten for breakfast that's sinful are whole wheat waffles (maybe once/month) at a fav Chicago bistro because they top them with freshly strawberries and a dollop of creme.
Yum, yum!

I've never done the fad diets. I don't think "no-carb" diets are healthy, except low-carb for diabetics. Small portions and a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy and fish is my primary diet. I do incorporate red meat (generally a steak) once a month. I avoid Mayonnaise, butter, oils (with an exception to extra virgin olive oil).

Weaknesses? (Oh, I'll cheat occasionally) Ice cream, pound cake and strawberry-rhubarb pie.

I have to say I really don't get the big deal about kripsy kremes. I don't find them good at all and they cost more money. Seems like a waste to me.

A Krispy Kreme is nothing special at room temperature. Heat it, however, and it becomes gooey bliss. :drool:

You really think Dunkin Donuts are better than Krispy Kreme? Then again, I'm from the SE USA, and Kripy Kreme is more our style. DD's donuts are so dry.

I'm glad I work out because I do NOT have healthy eating habits. Eggplant with corriander, yoghurt and cream, spinach and cottage cheese, lots and lots of cheese, deep fried eggplant....oh god!It (http://wtaworld.com/) used to be worse when I still ate meat, but thankfully, I decided that animals are too important to me. Now I just have an extra helping of dessert :tape:

I agree with the posters that aren't big fans of Krispy Kremes. I just don't like the taste of them...I feel like my teeth are rotting from the sugar.

As for the original topic...I don't eat white bread, white rice or white pasta anymore (unless i go for dinner to a friends and they serve it...I wouldn't choose to buy it for myself though). I eat a lot of salads...I probably spend half my food budget (at least in the winter) on different things to keep my salads interesting.... different greens, interesting veggies, fruits, nuts, different homemade croutons etc. I've also cut out all binge drinking :o

You're not an unhealthy American eater so Krispy Kream would disgust you. It's greasy and uber-sugary. Your blood isn't 40% high fructose corn syrup so you would find them naaaaaaaaasty! Trust me.

I love bread too. It's my biggest food weakness...I could eat it all day, everyday.

Low fat yogurt I can do, but I draw a line with cheeses. No low fat cheese...it just doesn't taste the same. I would rather eat less of a great tasting cheese than more of a cheese that tastes like styrofoam.

Guess how many pops I had today? I think 4.
Had some rice pudding (two from these packages, one bowl of homemade :cool: ).
Had garlic bread, cheetos and chocolate milk for lunch.
My eating habits are soo bad lately. I'm going to have a fudgesicle right now!

I am eating many blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Oatmeal or Muesli nearly every day. Lots of veggies too. Use olive oil only for sauteeing and eat fish 3 times a week. I eat bananas, oranges, tomatoes, cantaloupe and apples frequently. I drink green tea a lot too. Also eat yogurt quite often. Also eat a lot of chicken breast. bad things I eat: marinated olives (maybe not so bad?), ice cream, cheeses, pasta, bacon, eggs( both bad and good for you), chili (too much sodium), lime tostitos or doritos.

you are 100% right. Low fat cheese is super bland and worthless. Gross.

KRISPY KREMES are BEST when made in my hometown in Louisville, Kentucky fresh from the oven. They are still kind of warm and very fresh but not gooey and gross like in the microwave! Microwaving them would destroy any texture they have.

I've eaten Krispy Kreme since they opened recently in my country. It wasn't anything special, but I agree that it can get addicting, since I love sweet food. :lol: I prefer one of the local donut shops here. Their donuts are really soft and it's very different from that of Krispy Kreme.

I'm not a healthy-eater. But I do eat vegetables occassionally and Muesli is yummy! :D I love rice (I prefer white...although it's not the healthier choice. :lol:)! I just can't live without red meat in my diet.

Carpet: low-cal, high energy :devil:

Coffee isn't bad for you unless you drink it by the bucket, or dump a ton of dairy and sweeteners in it (e.g. anything "achino" at Dunks' and 80% of what people order at Starbucks).

Mostly I've been bringing fresh fruit to work for snacks - healthy in their own right, and it makes me less vulnerable to the cookies and pastry my coworkers bring in to "share" (trans: get other people to eat it so THEY don't blow their diets :lol: )

Green tea.
Fewer sweets.
More wheat bread and bran/wheat cereal.
Almost no soda these days.
More dark green veggies, many I had eaten
little of until recently.

I had an epiphany - I really do not need
to eat every single morsel on the plate in
front of me! Who knew.

When Krispy Kreme arrived in Quebec it was just Donut-mania. But I think you can get used to them quite often. I loved the originals of course, but the raspberrie filled ones were also drool.

I'm a vegetarian and I eat a lot of fruit/vegetables. I have trouble not eating dessert and I eat cheese in at least 2, if not 3 meals a day.

M-m-m......cheese.

Moderation is always a good rule of thumb.

But, then again, cheese........m-m-m.


I admit fresh, warm home made tortillas with butter
are my #1 problem.....I guess I should stop making them.

Chile on the other hand, fresh chiles, are great for you!
Not salsa or salt, just fresh home grown red and green
chile in food.

fresh fruits and vegetables
green tea
i rotate in several different juices: aronia berry, cranberry, pomegranate, acai and blueberry (lots of antioxidants in all of them)
and i generally eat low carb and do not eat anything low- or non-fat, so i drink whole milk, eat eggs, butter, etc.
i only cook with healthy fats/oils like olive oil, palm oil and coconut oil

to keep my digestive track on target i eat yoghurt and drink this stuff:

Mother Marjorie tries to stay away from commerical smoothies because they are loaded with sugars.

I try to juice at least twice a week, and sometimes will incorporate my morning yogurt into a blended smoothie. But not too often. Dunno why?

Isn't that the truth! Work is probably one of the most unhealthiest places to eat shared foods. I mean, its great to showcase your culinary skills, but someone is ALWAYS bringing cookies, cakes and brownies.

Although, I guess it does make sense that people bring "comfort" food to work. LOL.

I drink a glass of milk every morning, just love it.

Foodwise, I stick to the food triangle as much as possible. A meal isn't a meal unless it includes something meat/fish, some starch (potatoes, rice, pasta) and some vegetables.
