31-Day Blog Challenge | day 22

Back to something a little more light-hearted today, my 10 favourite songs. This is going to take a little thought, and no doubt I’ll leave one or more out. It’s difficult to choose just 10. Continue reading “31-Day Blog Challenge | day 22”

31-day Blog Challenge | day 7

The last day of the first week of my challenge, and I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. If you want to catch up, you can read from day 1 here.

Today’s post is going to be a fun one. My 10 favourite foods. 😋 I love food. I really do. Eating is one of my favourite things to do, and that’s the reason I’m in a constant battle with my weight. Thankfully, a fair few of my favourite things can be considered “healthy”…ish.

1. Caramel

Ok, so this goes against what I just said about being healthy, but… caramel! Well, not just caramel, but toffee and fudge too. They’re all pretty similar, making them is almost an identical process. I’m yet to use it, but I do have a sugar thermometer so I can have a go at making my own at home.

2. Mangoes

My new favourite fruit. I love how sweet and juicy they are, and the fact that they’re a tropical fruit makes me feel all summery and exotic when I eat one or drink the juice.

3. Strawberries

These used to be my favourite fruit, and I still love them. The ones you get all year round in the supermarkets aren’t great. The best way to enjoy strawberries is straight from the field. We go to a PYO farm every summer, purely for the strawberries

4. My Dad’s Chicken Fried Rice

It may not be the most authentic Chinese dish, but he was taught how to make it by an old Chinese lady if that counts. It’s something we used to have quite regularly when I was younger, but it’s become more of an occasional treat now I’m grown up and don’t live at home.

5. Cashew nuts

As I write this I’m snacking on a graze pot of Chili and Lime cashews, and last night I had duck and cashews from the takeaway. I love them. They’re quite expensive, as nuts go, and they can be high in fat (good fats, I know, but still), so I don’t have them as often as I’d like.

6. Chocolate

It had to appear on the list somewhere, didn’t it? LOL, I think I’d be a traitor to my gender if I didn’t have a soft spot for chocolate. I probably definitely eat more chocolate than I should, but…it shouldn’t taste so good. As I write this, it’s the week before Easter, and while I’m not religious, being a mother means our house gets bombarded with chocolate eggs every Spring Equinox.

7. Broccoli

An odd one to have on a favourites list, I know. But I really do like it. I was one of those fussy kids that wouldn’t try any new foods or eat any vegetable that wasn’t a potato. But since growing up, I’ve grown to love vegetables. In my one of my previous posts I mentioned I was vegetarian for a year, and I had to eat more vegetables to fill my plate. For convenience, I normally buy frozen broccoli and steam it. But when I can, I prefer fresh, still steamed or stir-fried, so it’s still al dente.

8. Toast

Who doesn’t love toast? In need of a quick, but warm breakfast? Toast. Want a midnight snack, but don’t want to cook anything too extravagant? Toast. It goes with everything! Beans, eggs, spaghetti hoops, ham, peanut butter, jam, chocolate spread, cheese, avocado… the list is honestly endless.

9. Bacon

But not streaky bacon, the stuff that Americans think is bacon.. no. Proper back bacon. I think it’s called Canadian bacon in the states, but I’m not sure it’s exactly the same thing. It’d be a bit of a cliche for me to mention vegetarians here, but bacon is great. And I know all the bad things about it, so I don’t have it that often, but occasionally it’s just what my body craves.

10. Burritos

If you have no idea what I’m talking about you need to check out this video clip, it’s from Teen Titans Go. Burritos are amazing… that is all.

Well, after writing that, I’m starving, so I’m off the raid my fridge for some tasty food from this list. I’d love to see your list, do you agree with mine? What would you add, that I might have forgotten? Leave a comment below
