1. Rolled Oats.
I haven’t found a grain I like more. They puff with piping hot water and turn into the fluffiest, creamiest bowlful. Simmered with one [fruit fly-loving] ripe banana and topped with a soup spoon of melting peanut butter…I’m one happy girl everyday at 6:30am.
2. Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges
They’re creamy and so full of flavor. I love to smear one in the center of my [seriously, who flips these right?!] omelet, spread them in the crannies of an english muffin with two eggs over easy, stir them into hot grains for a cheesy side dish. They melt well. They pop with flavor. They’re easy to use and less messy than, say, my lusty relationship with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
No, they’re not better than the best stinky and savory cheeses. Cheese purists, discontinue reading and move swiftly along to item #3.
No, I don’t recommend you eat them because they’re only 35 calories per wedge. No, they’re not just perfect in the name of portion-control. They’re smooth and rich and delicious. I’d buy ‘em even if they had 150 calories a triangle. Try the Smoked Mozzarella and Basil or the French Onion- my favorites.
3. Pink Lady Apples.
Without question the best apple if you’re looking for super sweet-meets-tart. They *taste like a candy apple all by their onesies.
*I generally do not consent to likening fruit to dessert. Void where prohibited.
4. Iced Americanos from Starbucks.
Filled with two creamy inches of vanilla soymilk
Tell me these fit the list? Also, tell me I’ll be reimbursed in the afterlife.
I’m never going to love pasta. Not going to give a hoot about rice or couscous. Not even going to stand for white carbs being disrespected.
Potatoes are my favorite of any starch. White- baked and fluffy-middled, fried ‘til they’re tanned, sliced and stuck in the oven with cheese and cream, tater-totted. Sweets. Garnets. Yams. All of ‘em.
What are your favorites?
