What foods feel indulgent but are actually quite healthy?

i'd have to say greek yogurt (lovely texture), crab (because it's so expensive, i can only have it once in a while), and all sorts of sweet ripe fruits (including avocado!). what about you?

        Well, ok, then. Here goes.

        Ice cream ... lots of calcium, protein and if made with fruit, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
        Peanut Butter ... healthy fats, protein
        Steak ... protein, iron
        Rice pudding ... dairy
        Steamed Taro ... 'nuff said.

    2. Ducks, that's what my heirs tell me.

        Don't worry, they love you. Duck fat is actually good for you.

        "It appears that duck and goose fat is more like olive oil than it is like butter or beef."

          I hope so. I made 40 ozs. of duck liver pate last Sunday, with ample fat!

            Actually, beef fat is more than 50% MUFA and PUFA, too. And saturated fats have been proven to have no causal relationship to heart disease anyway.

              Love, love the salt & pepper ones. Can't control myself; therefore, don't buy often due to high sodium content.
