If you could choose one “main course” item and one dessert item that would, just for you, contain zero calories for the rest of your life (or zero cholesterol, zero points, or whatever your most important dietary measure is)…what would you choose?
There are so many ways I am supposed to be limiting my food. Calories, carbs, fats, sugars... you name it and it seems like I should be on a diet consisting of air and water. I must confess that giving up sugar wasn't as hard for me as I would have thought (oh, Queen of the Sweet Iced Tea), but limiting my intake of all things pasta has been sheer torture.
Were it possible, I'd probably have some form of spaghetti with smooth sauce, lots of meat and parmesan cheese most every night. On the nights I didn't eat spaghetti, it would be lasagne or maybe chicken alfredo or even pasta salad. I love pasta! And I can't seem to cut it out entirely. I do compromise a little with whole wheat pasta and I try to keep it to once a week. But if I could have a "free" food, pasta would be it. Closely followed by cheese.
And for dessert? Tiramisu!!! What's not to like? Cake? Creamy filling? Coffee flavor? Chocolate? I could follow my pasta with this anytime!
Now go visit Margaret and see what foods the other participants wish were "free"!
