What's the last thing you ate - 2017

post #1 of 221
Thread Starter 

Portillo's Italian Sausage, Cheese Fries and a Chocolate Cake Shake.

 

We were supposed to go to a Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse with friends for New Years Eve but hubby and I are both sick.  We picked up food and ate at home. Our plans with our friend's were rescheduled for next weekend.

A bagel.
post #4 of 221

Believe it or not, blueberries.  I decided I'd had enough sinful desserts over the holidays and wanted to start the new year fresh.  We'll see how long that lasts, lol.:bigwink:

A boring bagel. agree.gif
post #8 of 221

Just dinner last night. I had to fast afterward for blood work.

 

Am drinking my morning coffee now and getting ready to make oatmeal.

post #9 of 221

A banana. It was kind of over ripe for my tastes but I've been sick and felt I needed the potassium.  My appetite has been off for days.

A slice of gluten free icebox fruitcake.

Almost the same here except for almond milk and raisins. (Love my oatmeal especially on a cold winter morning.)

I have started using the vanilla unsweetened almond milk. I love it.

I just ate a banana. I like them when they are kind of green still. laughing02.gif

I use the 365 Whole Foods brand of original unsweetened almond milk.  I know a lot of items at Whole Foods can be pricey but their almond milk is not and it's the best I've ever tasted.  I also love their Allegro coffee beans and I'm a coffee fanatic, (my one bad habit, lol). 

post #16 of 221

I'm not a big fan of unsweetened almond milk, too bland for me. I get the silk almond vanilla. :) I have it with cereal and also drink it as is.

post #17 of 221

I like almond milk. too. I use it on cereal and in my tea. I use all the soy, rice, cashew, almond and coconut milks. I never use real milk. 

post #18 of 221

I only use almond milk because my stomach doesn't agree with regular milk in the morning. I can eat other dairy products just fine though and chocolate milk.

post #19 of 221

I use almond milk also. I am somewhat lactose intolerant. I can have ice cream, certain soft serves, sour cream, yogurt.. but regular milk really bothers me. I even tried the Lactaid milk. I could never get used to the taste of it; also had issues when I had it in cereal. 

 

I really like almond milk, much better than soy..

post #20 of 221
I first tried the coconut milk and it upset my stomach. I have notice the almond milk has more calcium that regular milk.

I love oatmeal, but only have it with cinnamon. Quaker has an instant oatmeal with more protein and I'm tempted to try it. I'm not fond of instant oatmeal and everybody says the rolled oats are better for you (I should get some steel-cut oats and use them; there is a recipe to make the steel cut oats on a Sunday night in the oven, then you cut them into squares and have a square throughout the week with milk. Steel cut oats take a long time to prepare), but the extra protein has me interested.

 

Not particularly fond of milk at all, to be honest. Nor was my mother; she used to have her cereal with water, even her oatmeal. greenbarf.gif I'm not sure I could do that.

 

I just tried eating Greek strawberry yogurt. greenbarf.gif Now I've never eaten wallpaper paste, but I really think that the texture of the two is a lot alike. cringe.gif My doctor suggested I switch to Greek because of the added protein. But oy....it's going to take some time for me to get used to it.

 

Anyway, I just finished my oatmeal and milk. And I had a mug of hot chocolate, too, in addition to my coffee, because I'm freezing to death this morning.

An english muffin. I should dig out the oatmeal. agree.gif
post #23 of 221

pork fried rice -- for brunch.

post #24 of 221

I'm eating for my dinner a big salad I got at my grocery stores salad bar.

Some Greek yogurts are AMAZING. I'm not a big yogurt fan but the Greek Gods make some really, really good yogurts. They make a honey salted caramel that is AMAZING. Seriously. They also have a chocolate mocha one that is good too.

 

Dannon Greek yogurts are good too. Just not AS good as the above mentioned. Wal Mart sells the Greek Gods yogurts as does Target.

I'd have to go with the nonfat stuff because of the calories and fat content. I've never tried plain yogurt.You know, I'm not a real big yogurt fan to start with and am only eating the stuff because of the calcium....not because I like it. Which is sad in itself. I'll see if our Giant carries Greek Gods. I can check Target next time I'm there, too. The Dannon Oikos strawberry is what I tried. Rick really likes it; he likes yogurt as it is.

 

The last thing I ate was a bowl of Sugar Frosted Flakes last night. Rick got them when we went for groceries last Monday and I swear that box has been calling to me since we brought it into the house. I broke down last night; it's been decades since I had a bowl.

 

Drinking my morning coffee now.

I would check the ingredients in the Dannon strawberry yogurt. I don't know if they still do it but Dannon and other yogurt companies would use carmine red dye in their yogurt which is made from crushed cactus beetles.

Ok, that's officially disgusting! cringe.gif I'll check it out.

 

ETA: Muffy, I just checked the Oikos and that dye is not in the strawberry, nor is it in the cherry (that's what Rick is eating right now). Thanks for the heads-up.

@Winchester  I really like Chobani Greek yogurt, Fage greek yogurt.. StonyField is another good one, but I have a hard time finding it in non-fat. I get the low or non fat versions..

 

I know Trader Joes is not near you, but if you happen to get to one, you have to try their Greek yogurt.. non-fat..

They are delicious. The ones I eat are the vanilla and the coconut. They are made by StonyField Yogurt...
