Regular Chow

I'm a type 2 diabetic. I try to lean toward low carb foods to keep the sugar steady. Most mornings for breakfast I have a slice of whole grain toast, slathered generously with smoked salmon [combined with ricotta cheese, lemon juice & worchestershire sauce ], Ceylon tea, and a piece of fruit. I sometimes vary the routine by using Snofrisk cheese rather than the salmon blend. This gives me a nice lo carb start on the day. My wife can't understand how I can eat this every day and not be sick of it but I love it and look forward to it. Do you have any foods you eat on a daily, or at least regular basis and still really love?

    I go on strange binges where I only want to eat artichokes or BLTs or corn flakes. My last one was macaroni and cheese...from soul food restaurants only. That one was inconvenient. I have a pretty varied diet, but I don't ever get tired of french bread, bananas, peanut butter and cereal.

    I don't always eat breakfast, and sometimes when I do I vary it up a bit, but for many years now I've generally had the same basic thing. A cup of Stonyfield yogurt, lemon or plain, nonfat or lowfat, with fruit and grape nuts mixed in (about a cup of fruit and 1/4 cup of grape nuts, but I don't really keep track.) The fruit is most often chunks of pineapple, fresh when I have it, or canned. Grapes are good too, mandarin oranges slices as well. I was very annoyed when Stonyfield recently shrunk the size of their single serving packages of yogurt - it sent my system out of whack.
    I really do enjoy it - there's enough opportunity to vary things up, and the whole combination just has a good, fresh, clean taste.

    Every now and then I make my own graham nuts and use them instead of the grape nuts. They're tastier, but don't have the same crunch.

    I can pretty much eat chicken every day. No problem.

    I eat some kind of citrus fruit everyday. Fortunately, here in SOuth Louisiana, the winter months mean fresh, locally grown fruit. Satsumas, navel oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons.

    I think I also end up eating tomatoes in one form or another everyday.

    Bananas. When I can't have a sit-down breakfast, I scarf a banana at my desk at work and I'm usually set until lunch.

    first, i love the screenname "retired & glad"!!! oh, how i wish! what i wouldn't give to be retired. unfortunately, i just got my first real job, so i've got about 30 years to go....

    now, what i eat....i bring the same lunch every day to work: goldfish crackers, diced peaches, a capri sun and something microwavable (chef boyardee raviolis, hormel chicken and dumplings). i eat this because all of it is pre-packaged and i can simply throw it in a bag and go.

    i get on kicks as well. i was obsessed with pad thai for a few months. latley, it's been garlic sauce from this middle-easter restaurant. it's very potent....it would keep vampires away for days!

    i also snack regularly on gardettos or chex mix after work and before dinner.

    i kinda eat like crap.

    I eat oatmeal for breakfast everyday throughout the year, even when it's hot weather. My only break in that is Saturday mornings at Kathy's Diner where I meet up with friends and indulge in some hashbrowns and a side of sausage patties.

    Mrs. 1-iron has eaten All-Bran cereal EVERY FREAKIN' DAY OF HER LIFE FOR OVER 30 YEARS. Talk about regular.[:) I can't stand it, I try to get her to change, but no luck. And if we go out to eat she always gets a salad - nothing else.

    I think I could eat hamburger, steak, and tomatoes every day of my life and not get tired of them. Ketchup on the hamburger, so it's pretty much just a beef and tomato thing.

    Wow! All Bran everyday for 30 years. I'm impressed! For me to eat anything that many days running it would have to be a big wedge of Rhubarb pie topped with a gob of vanilla ice cream. Uummm!!

    Don't be impressed, feel sorry for the girl. I guess she eats to live and I live to eat. She likes to go Roadfooding w/ me but all she eats is the All-Bran and salads. I'll still keep her though.

    Does she ever eat ice cream?

    I forgot that one! Ice cream about 5 times a week, usually after her evening All Bran.

    Boy! Am I embarassed! In starting this thread I mentioned my salmon/ricotta cheese spread; well that's the wrong cheese. I just made up a new batch. I use Neufchatel cheese not Ricotta. Please forgive my "foxy paw". I guess that's just another sign of my reaching "advanced age", whatever that is.

    TACOS! Atleast a couple times a week... Not the fast food variety either! Always curious if my favorite restraunt will serve me fresh corn shells or stale ones (stale in my book is over a day old, and yes, you can taste the difference)... Other than that, my daily menu is too varied to be considered somewhat consistant! Well, guess I do eat biscuts and gravey atleast once every 10 days if that counts....

    I go through phases. Right now its Maple and Brown Sugar Mini Wheats at breakfast. I buy two boxes at a time so I don't run out. I used to have to have a Qdoba burrito once a week, but I got sick of them about the same time I moved to where there weren't any. Not a bad trick...

    Why it that we get on these "kicks"? Some wierd message our brain sends to the body? My kicks are recurring---some weeks it's sweet potato-every night. Blueberry yogurt(Dannon no-fat) for months now.Chicken salad all last summer. I've had years of banana every morning. My husband is going on over 25 years of oatmeal with peaches every a.m.The record in my family goes to my mom who has been eating Ritz crackers with cheese (2)and Branschwagger (2) for over 45 years.

    Since I retired the second time My everyday breakfast is Bob's Red Mill old fashioned Steel Cut Oats, with 1 slice dry 9 grain bread toast. Boaring isn't it. Every so often I make the first wife a Dutch Baby.

    If it's available in your area, try Sweet Sue Chicken & Dumplings. Closest thing I've found to my grandmother's.

    First wife, only wife of 50 plus years. How she put up with me I don't know.

    DUTCH BABY
    3/4 cup milk
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 Tbs. sugar
    4 eggs beaten until foamy
    3 Tbs. unsalted butter
    Confectioners sugar & lemon slices for garnish
    (We some times use pancake syrup)

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a 9-inch oven proof skillet in oven to heat.

    Mix flour, salt, milk and granulated sugar in a bowl. Whisk in eggs. Place butter in skillet swirling around to coat the entire skillet. Pour batter into skillet, put skillet into oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until baby is pulled away, browned, and puffed.

    Serve with either syrup or confectioners sugar.

    I don't know where this recipe came from have had it for years.

    Yum, the Dutch Baby sounds good, but oddly named, to say the least.

    First wife must be a lovely, patient woman with a good sense of humor, Ralph. Sounds like a keeper.

    Dutch Babies are sometimes called German Pancakes. I like them with apples cooked inside.

    Today I am having real good regular chow!

    I am baking a pork shoulder marinated with orange marmalade, dark syrup, sliced Dole pineapple with cherries.

    Collard greens with bacon and bacon grease, minced fresh garlic, grated Bermuda red onions, button mushrooms with the stems cooked in bacon grease and soul food seasoning.

    Yams cooked in dark syrup, real slighly salted butter, lime juice, cinnamon, cut up Dole pineapple and orange marmalade.

    Tennessee cornbread with chopped up onions, corn, pimento and jalapenos cooked in a red hot pan at 425 to put a strong crust on it.

    That is real regular chow Unfortunately I cnnot eat all of it due to the Atkins thing

    Grew up having mashed potatoes at least once every day. Closest to every day consumption now would be saltine crackers and some sort of a piece of cheese.
