The ABC’s of Me (Chloe)

2 06 2011

A few posts ago Steph mentioned that one of the newest trends in the foodie blog world is the “ABC’s of Me.” Well friends, I am officially jumping on the trend wagon for the day. Enjoy 🙂 and feel free to jump on board as well! After all…sharing is caring.

The ABC’s of Chloe

A is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?

A big fat crisp one that I pick off of a tree all by myself.

Can you see me?

B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?

Portuguese Sweet Bread. Especially if it has raisins and is toasted with some butter on top…mmmmm. It is very similar to Challah..another one of my favorites!

C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)

This past weekend I ate a lot of shredded wheat. I added lots of blueberries and some granola on top to give it flavor. I don’t love it but it helps with digestion…if you know what I mean.

D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?

A plain  old fashioned donut. I used to be a Humphreys Jelly Filled kind of girl, but that was back in the day. 10 points to anyone who can tell me where Humphreys is!!!

E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?

in a fritatta. with all sorts of veggies, cheese and maybe some shrimps. like so.

F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?

FRO-YO. hands down.

G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?

Usually at the Giant, but if I am playing “money doesn’t matter,” I head to Whole Paycheck. I also love TJ’s…but tend to go overboard EVERY time I go…

H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?

coffee

I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.

anykindofberry FRO YO with chocolate chips AND chocolate sprinkles.

J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?

Homemade Apricot Jam.

K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?

Hmm. Honestly I don’t eat much Kashi….but I do love their “7 whole grains on a mission” phrase. very clever!

L: is for Lunch, what was yours today/yesterday?

A turkey and swiss sandwich on toasted whole grain bread with lettuce, honey mustard and mayo. (yes…I like mayo. I hadn’t eaten it since I was really little, but bought it for a recipe a few weeks ago and it has made a comeback!) I also had carrots and hummus, an apple, some pretzels mixed with choc chips and other various snacks that I much on throughout the day…

M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?

Orville Redenbacher Kettle Corn popcorn with chocolate chips = one of my favorite snacks ever!

N: is for nutrients, do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?

I used to be a carbaholic, but I have slowly learned to tone that down. At this point in my life I just like all REAL, UNPROCESSED food.

O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use?

EVOO…but I often use EVOO spray.

P: is for protein, how do you get yours?

Cottage cheese, shrimps, chicken and eggs. Unlike the rest of the blog world, I just LIKE nut butters, I don’t LOVE them.

Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?

Cooked in almond milk with banana, dried cherries and a scoop of almond butter. But I honestly like cream of wheat or oat bran better 🙂 Especially this stuff…

R: is for roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?

Root veggies!

S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?

Chicken salad with cranberries, lettuce and onion on a toasty baguette!

T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?

Its kind of a love/hate deal. While I LOVE trying new foods and giving myself permission to have more “fun foods” while on vacation, I also quickly get to a point of wanting my typical daily eats. I also really miss cooking my own food…

U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?

I dip my carrots in ketchup. Is that weird? I also used to (like back in the day) make this dessert that I liked to call a “Ricotta Delight.” You mix ricotta, cocoa powder and Splenda. Remember that J?!?!? and yes…I use Splenda. I know it is not all natural or “REAL.” I have no good excuse not to…except that the sweetness of splenda is only matched with about 10 packets of sugar…and I would be bouncing off the walls with 10 packets of sugar. Any ideas of how to kick the habit?

V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take?

Nada! I have no problem eating a well balanced diet (which includes not only fruits, veggies and whole grains, but an assortment of fun foods) and so far so good according to the doc!

W: is for wasabi, yay or nay?

YAY! Especially Trader Joes Wasabi Peas. I have been eating my fair share of those recently.

X: is for XRAY. if we xrayed your belly right now, what food would we see?

Sweet Green Fro-Yo topped with strawberries, mangoes, coconut and blackberries. It was a pretty solid afternoon snack!

Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood?

peanut butter and Polanar All-Fruit jam sandwiches on Arnold 7 grain bread with a side of chocolate milk. Anyone else a Polanar kid?

Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it?

Sauteed with Yellow Squash and Onions. This combo is a staple veggie side in my house!

Also, one more point: I ALSO dipped my carrots in ketchup when I was a kid, and find myself surreptitiously dipping them in ketchup as an adult. And I also remember the ricotta delight…oh memories =)

Fun! My initials are ES…so, for eggs, I like mine poached or over easy. Yum! Hmm, sandwich is a tough one…so many things to chose from. I do love some chicken salad with cranberries!! I just made some egg salad with red pepper, too that is pretty awesome! Anything with avocado is good, too. Okay I am clearly incapable of picking just one:).

my initials are BC, and for bread I have to say it’s all about sourdough! (but I am living in San Francisco right now). Your Portuguese sweet bread choice makes me think of my mom’s Irish Soda Bread though, and that is right up there on my list. For cereal, I eat steel cut oats every morning. The only boxed cereal I eat is the occasional box of cinnamon toast crunch that I have for dessert when I need to relive my sugary childhood 🙂

I cannot live with Trader’s. And, even though I want to buy everything in the store, I find I actually spend less than I do at Giant or Safeway. It’s a win-win!
