Food Fixations

Who doesn’t love a little aliteration in their lives?

Today was cold. Freaking, freezing cold. Katie and I planned to hit up the infamous BodyPump this morning (which was quite a killer, by the way. I decided that if I only hit the classes up every once-in-a-while instead of three times a week as I used to, I may be able to incorporate it into my workout plan without getting the unwanted muscle-builder effects that I was getting when I was a regular.) Anyway, when I got to the car to take off, it was so bitter cold that it felt like the door handles and steering wheel was about to snap right off when I touched it.

So I don’t know about you, but when I find a food combination that I like, I eat it by the truckload. My most recent kick is Greek yogurt with sliced banana.

banana yogurt(Yogurt: Banana ratio = 1:100)

Sure, this combination won’t be winning an Iron Chef competitions any time soon, but I am obsessed. There is something about the mix of textures and the zingy-ness of the yogurt with the sweetness of the banana slices, I’ll take 2,000 cups!

Because I’m five, the other half of my lunch consisted of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (and not a particularly good one, I might add.)


Look, it’s even wrapped up in foil like a five-year-old’s!

So my preoccupation with Greek yogurt has gotten me thinking about some of my other food obsessions in recent days.

  • Grated parmesan cheese. Strange, right? If it were prudent, I would pile about 2 million tablespoons of the ridiculously artificial cheese on top of my dinners on a daily basis. I don’t know what the deal is.
  • Sweet potatoes. I eat about one of these every single day. Fortunately, they are packed with vitamins and are also very filling, so it’s not a bad choice, but it is a strange one.
  • Low-fat ranch dressing. I spent about 211/2 years of my life loathing salad dressings. I hated it with a deep and starving passion. Even the smell of it would make me cringe, but now, I can’t get enough.  I put it on everything

Those are the three big ones. Interestingly, 2/3 of that list is comprised of condiments which I typically don’t use at all. When I get a flavor stuck in my head, I don’t let go easily! Evidently I happened to hit the food jag phase of life a couple decades later than usual. 😛

I hope you had a great day and stayed warm. Might I suggest hiding under a blanket??
