Foods Most Eaten

I was thinking about the fact that we all tend to eat particular things over and over again. The reasons can be health, ease, economic, or any other reasons. What are the 10 things you have eaten more than any other things in the last month. Here are mine. They can be specific items or a particular dish.

Red Onion
iceberg Lettuce
English Muffins
Celeste Pizza - Deluxe
Egg Roll
Philly Cream Cheese
Pork Dumplings
Vermont White Cheddar

Not very exciting, but I've probably had at least three of these things every day for the last month

    1. I am a creature of habit and most days consume the exact things. But, the vegetables and fruit change with the seasons. I do eat other things, but these are about 90 per cent of my diet.

      1/2 bagel
      cream cheese

      salad, red leaf lettuce,tomato,cuke,avacado

      chicken stir fry, pea pods, red bell pepper, snow peas, onion, garlic, ginger, rice

        I think if I did this for one week, I'd lose about 10 lbs and I love everything on here

          Funny you noticed. I have lost 40lbs in 6 months, using this base. :) I started walking 1/2hr, 3 times a week also. But, for the most part it hasn't been a hard diet to stick to.

            I had planned on starting a diet last week, but things went awry early in the week. So I decided to hold off til this coming week. Salad is always a huge part of my diet, but I am always in search of forms of protein and low carb foods that fill, I don't really eat pasta or pizza, but the bread as a vehicle for my other foods (I love sandwiches of tomato, avocado, onion and lettuce) is my downfall. I actually posted this to see what people eat the most, to maybe get some meal ideas from ingredients instead of actual meals.

              I make lots of stir frys. I grill chicken or fish and have it in the fridge, on hand for a few meals, while I make the rest of my dinner. I always use fresh garlic, ginger and onion to start, because I feel it gives a big flavor boost. A little oil in the skillet/wok on medium high. I usually chop my veggies to bite size pieces and throw in whatever I buy at the grocer's. I like cooking rice ahead of time as well. At the time the veggies are nearly finished, I toss in some bean paste and wine. Shut off the heat, add cold rice and protein to my plate and a couple of spoonfuls of the hot stir fry on top. Let it sit for 2 minutes and I'm good to go, as the chicken and rice are warmed by the steaming hot veggies.

              This is a pretty guilt free meal, so there is one recipe for you. :) Good luck on your diet, slow and steady works best I believe (at least in my case).


      2. Eggs
        Noodle Bowls (Not, not dehydrated)
        BLT Salad
        Ground Sirloin
        Clam Chowder (and oyster crackers, although I just made it go to 11. :)

        1. Peppers: sweet/spicy
          Tomatoes: canned/fresh
          Pasta: usually penne, fusili, or spaghetti
          Rice: usually jasmine
          Red or Yellow onions
          Garlic: lots of it
          Various sausages
          Beef: ground or cut up and cooked in a thick borsht
          Plain crackers
          Canned fish: cheap tuna/sardines

          I'm in the boonies in China, so I do a lot of cooking at home. Not a lot of processed food in the diet. I love going home to the SF Bay and pigging out on microwave burritos, taqueria food, and Hot Pockets.
