I was reading an article in Fitness Magazine about the top 10 superfoods - I do pretty well with keeping them in my diet. How about you?
I'm getting better with blueberries now but I can still take them or leave them. As far as berries go - this is the only one I'm not wowed by and I need to change it. I'll add them to fruit salads and eat them if they're in yogurt but I don't go out of my way to eat them like I do with the others in the berry family.
I do enjoy salmon and after reading this I will take a closer look to see if it's wild or farm-raised. I have no idea. I'm picky about how my salmon is prepared though, I feel you can easily ruin salmon if you don't cook it correctly. Although raw is my favorite - in sushi. Yum.
I have been getting into the habit of making our salads out of baby spinach instead of pointless iceberg lettuce. I like spinach if it's raw or in something, like a stuffed chicken burger or lasagna. But on it's own? Ew. Sorry Popeye - your preaching didn't help me in this area.
No. Nope. Nada. I've tried these every few years and I cannot get over the texture of them. They're just not good in my opinion.
Finally! My pickiness pays off! I do not like raw tomatoes...no no no. Unless they're in a salsa - mainly Garden Fresh Salsa *drools* - then I'll eat it by the spoonful. But cooked tomatoes in any form are yummy. Sun dried tomatoes are wonderful additions to salads and eggs.
I have never enjoyed the flavor of walnuts. Jason thinks I'm crazy because I hate when nuts are in brownies, breads, cakes, ice cream. There are only a handful of nuts I'll actually eat.
LOVE these things. LOVE them. I'm always excited when someone adds them to fruit salads. I will admit I do my best to make sure the spoonfuls I'm getting contain kiwi. I love to eat them on their own as a snack too, the flavor is so sweet! Nature's Candy!
I'm not a huge chocolate fan, I enjoy it don't get me wrong but in small doeses. And not dark chocolate. Oh no, I enjoy mine full of sin and fat. Milk chocolate and the even worse - white chocolate. Hersey's Hugs are one of my favorites!
I love yogurt! But I always buy the stuff that already has the goodies inside. I keep reading it's best to buy plain and add your own stuff. I get it - but when I'm rushing out the door in the morning with already a huge list of things to do in my 45 minutes of get ready time (because seriously wake up earlier? I don't think so) adding fruit to my yogurt isn't up on my need to do list. I'm lucky if I remember to grab the premixed stuff in the morning!
Hate them mashed? Try them cut up and roasted with herbs or onions for an easy, awesome side.
Yum. Yum. Yum. I tried them when I was younger in a sweet potato pie and was not impressed. Giving me the impression I just didn't like sweet potatoes. Turns out I do - love them. Just not when they're made into a pie. I like to bake them as fries so a side. I like to bake them and put a bit of cinnamon on top for an extra flavor factor.
So - what are your thoughts? How did you score with the top ten? Are you super picky like me?
