What’s your favorite “perfect” food?
Have you ever played the board game Personal Preference? It was popular in the early 1990’s. In the game, each player ranks four items (words on cards from four stacks–food, famous people, etc) according to his/her personal preference. After secretly ranking the items, everyone else bets on where the items will fall within the ranking for that individual. My family used to play this game and my favorite category to both rank for myself and guess for other people was food. No surprise, right?!
This morning as I made my eggs/egg beaters, I realized that I have had eggs for breakfast every morning for the past two years! It made me wonder if indeed eggs would make my list of top ranked foods. And, it got me inspired to write this blog asking others to share their one favorite perfect food. Fun….right?!
For me, eggs, egg beaters and/or egg whites provide a perfect source of protein – and in the case of eggs – healthy fat – to start my day. I combine my eggs/egg beaters with any combination of healthy veggies to make omelets and I vary the combinations depending on my macro-nutrient numbers that day/week. I love eggs over easy, scrambled, or just about any old way. I even love salsa on my eggs for a little Tex Mex flavor. And most recently, I have learned to make eggs/egg beaters wherever I go. When I travel, I sometimes end up making them in the microwave – easy but not quite as delicious as on the stove.
Can you see me now doing the commercial for the incredible, edible egg?!
So while eggs might not make the top of my all-time favorite food list. They do make the top of my list of favorite “perfect” healthy foods. Of course, my favorite is when I can combine them with turkey sausage or even bacon, but we won’t go there. 🙂
My friend Dean has been obsessed (in a good way) with his new Nutribullet, making concoctions with kale and various fruits to hit his numbers. He even has his kids wanting kale! Kendra, who I can tell has a creative flair in the kitchen that is not in my DNA, has been experimenting with smoothies to hit her macro-nutrient numbers, including a Lemon Cooler Smoothie that I can’t wait to try . And Stephanie posted that she is in love with a chocolate protein, peanut butter, and strawberries combo. Yum! I am with ya Steph.
So, in the spirit of fun and living a healthy lifestyle, I ask, what is your favorite “perfect” (implied healthy) food? What are you nuts about and why? Please share here.
P.S. For my fellow egg lovers, fun recipes always welcome!
