Tagged: Favorite Foods

I was recently tagged by Kara @ CookEatReadSleep, Julie @ JulieGoLean, and Melissa @ Nibbles and Wiggles to list out my 7 favorite things. If you haven't already - please go check out their blogs - you will become big fans, just like I have. :)


I am going to do a FOOD themed list like my friend Mara has on the sidebar of her blog. I may also have a slight issue limiting this to only 7 items. I have to say that this list has changed over the years and will probably keep changing...


athlEAT's 7 Favorite Foods
(in no particular order)


  1. French Fries. I don't discriminate. Potato, sweet potato, butternut squash, curly, spicy, thin, thick, fresh-cut, burnt. I like em all.
  2. Pizza. I DO discriminate here. It has to be thin, chewy - with just the right amount of sauce and cheese. Preferably from Buon Giorno in MD. It is my favorite in the state - they know what they are doing.
  3. Almond Butter. This is a new favorite for me - less than one year old. I discovered its deliciousness after hearing all about it in blog world. I am so happy I found this stuff, but wish it cost A LOT less money. Almond butter will be the reason I go broke.
  4. Tortilla Chips w/ Salsa or Guacamole or both. I can NOT resist these combinations and while eating them I am always incredibly happy.
  5. Sushi. Specifically, the jumbo lump crab meat roll from Chiu's Sushi in Baltimore.
  6. Edamame. I have a slightly new, strong love for this stuff in every form. Steamed in the shell and sprinkled with salt. Shelled and mixed in with my stir-fry veggies. Edamame Hummus and Dark Chocolate Covered Edamame from Trader Joes.
  7. Bananas. I love most fruits, but this is the one I eat and enjoy the most - in every form. Plain, in oatmeal, in bread, on bread, w/ almond butter.
Oh man, I have thought about 10 million other foods I love - oatmeal, greek yogurt, plantain chips, couscous, zucchini, chocolate soy milk, veggie burgers, PB puffins, pot stickers, larabars, etc. My list could go on and on. It might be harder to come up with foods I don't like.


Waaay back in high school, I had never even heard of almond butter and edamame. I wonder what new product will become my favorite in 10 years.


What is your favorite newly discovered (less than a year) food product that you cant live without?

All those foods are awesome. I don't think I could live without peanut butter though; that stuff is crack.

All excellent choices! I totally agree on the almond butter and edamame!

I cannot live without...Goddess dressing! I never really used salad dressing prior to this summer--now I can't get enough of this stuff!
