ABC’s of Food!

The ABCs of Food

I love these kinds of things and hopefully you do too!! I have seen this on a few blogs! Feel free to copy and paste to answer these questions yourselves!

Also – if you haven’t checked out the giveaway winners – do so now!!  I may have to re-draw for 1 of them, as I haven’t heard from her yet!!

A is for Avocado: How do you like yours prepared?

  • Avocados are one of my favourite things, I love it smashed up in guac, in salads, in smoothies, with agave and salt and pepper… the only avocado I haven’t enjoyed is when I had it tempura battered and deep fried (icky).

B is for Bread: Regardless of nutrition, what is your favourite type?

  • I just love bread! I love a really good crusty bread that is hard on the outside and soft on the inside.  Even better if it is still warm from the oven with some butter (Earth Balance!)

C is for Chocolate: What is your favourite kind currently?

  • Chocolate is a challenge for me.  I LOVE it, but I can’t have many of the kinds I used to enjoy.  I would be in heaven if I could eat some MILK chocolate that melts in your mouth.

D is for Donuts: You might not currently eat them, but what kind do you fancy?

  • I have never really liked donuts.  I used to have one bite of sour cream donuts, but that’s all… never a fan....

E is for Eggs: How would you like yours prepared?

  • I love eggs!  I have them for breakfast on mornings that I am going to be busy (aka school or work)  I love having omelettes too full of veggies.

F is for Falafel: Yay or nay?

  • Love falafels, although I would rather they were baked and not fried.  Has anyone tried the ones from Costco?

G is for Groceries: Where do you purchase yours?

  • I get most of my groceries at the store that is super close to us.  Also there is a great little store/market place that sells awesome veggies and also the health food store – many times their organic veggies are cheaper than non organic at the grocery store.

H: is for Hot Beverages: What is your favourite hot drink?

  • I love hot tea!  peppermint, candy cane lane (mmm) – hot tea rocks.

I is for Ice Cream: Pick a favourite flavour and add a fun topping.

  • So Good’s Butterscotch Ripple.   Pre- dairy free days – Rolo, hands down!.

J is for Jams or Jellies: Do you eat them? If so, what kind and flavour?

  • I have never been a fan.  I would rather peanut butter and honey.

K is for Kashi: Name your favourite Kashi product?

  • I’m not a fan of Kashi products, everyone I have tried has upset my stomach. 

L is for Lunch: What was yours today?

  • I haven’t had lunch yet, probably left overs from the BBQ we had this weekend.

M is for microwave: What is your favourite microwave meal/snack?

  • Pappadums – usually you fry them, but the microwave works better – also popcorn in a brown paper bag. .

N is for nutrients: Do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?

  • Hmm… that’s a tricky one.  Probably carbs!

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

  • Coconut oil, grapeseed oil and sesame. 

P is for protein: How do you get yours?

  • Chicken, Eggs, Fish/Shellfish, Tofu and Veggies! (yes veggies have protein)

Q is for Quaker: How do you like your oats?

  • Call me a bad food blogger, but I don’t fully understand (or appreciate) the oats thing.  I don’t mind them, but not my favourite thing.  My favourite way is making oat pancakes – which is a recipe I should probably share one day! .

R is for roasting: What is your favourite thing to roast?

  • Veggies – broccoli, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic. 

S is for sandwich: What’s your favourite kind?

  • One loaded full of veggies, hummus, avocado and fun things like sundried tomatoes and artichokes! .

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

  • Most of the time I find travelling easy.  If we are visiting people I mention in ahead of time and offer to bring something so I don’t have to inconvenience them.  Most restaurants are awesome – the only major challenges so far have been sit down dinners (think wedding) or people who thing that “a little butter won’t hurt you right”!.

U is for unique: What are some of the unique foods that you like?

  • Haha..  Most of the things I eat!.

V is for vitamins: What kind do you take?

  • I consider Nooch a vitamin (because it’s chalked full), Vitamin D.

W is for Wiener Schnitzel: Do you ever recreate this traditional Czech food?

  • Czech food?  That’s Austrian (German) all the way baby!! And I’ve had it, at Oktoberfest in Austria (where part of my family is from) – never tried to recreate it though. .

X is X-RAY: If we xrayed your belly right now, what food would we see?

  • Food from the BBQ – (lots of fruit, veggies, salads, some plain chips and loads of water).

Y is for Youth: What foods remind you of your childhood?

  • Mom’s Muffins
  • Sauerkraut
  • Maggie Sauce with Mr. Noodles (my grandpa) talk about a salt overload!

Z is for Zucchini: How do you prepare it?

  • How do I not prepare it would be easier.  Roasted, baked, fried, bbq, raw, noodleized…  I heart zucchini!

Hope you enjoyed this!!  Feel free to leave your answers in the comment section – or copy and paste it for your blog!

Hopefully I’ll have some tasty foods up for you tomorrow!

  5. I enjoyed reading your ABC's of Food :-) I love your sandwich! Wiener Schnitzel can be Czech as well, I grew up in Czech Republic and we all eat that traditionally on Christmas with potato salad (and also fried carp). A lot of German, Czech, Polish and Austrian foods are very similar.
