I didn't wake up in time for breakfast, so I made French toast for lunch! Very Happy I made it with a piece of cinnamon raisin bread last week and was sooo good! yahoo I only had honey wheat bread this time though, but it still really good. I had a little jug of real maple syrup, and real maple syrup kicks cheap synthetic pancake syrup ass.

So I've reccently acquired taste for ginger (I don't just like it, I LOVE it) and I'm on a quest to try pretty much anything that has ginger in it. I never liked ginger as a kid, not even ginger ale. I don't know why I suddenly love it, I guess taste buds can change. Shrug

Just bought some ginger liqueur yahoo

This stuff-


Just tasted it! OMG it's so fucking good! yahoo yahoo yahoo

But since this is the food thread not the drink thread, here's something more food related (my new favorite candy)-

It's weird how potato chips-flavours (and their popularity) wildly vary from country to country.
We have like hamburger-taste now. Eyebrow

I agree. It's so weird seeing what flavours are popular where. When I was in Bali they had this flavour that was supposedly just salted, but they weren't. No way were they just salt flavour.

Yeah Walkers, which is like the British equivalent of Lays often runs competitions asking people to invent flavours and the make the best ones and sell them. We've had fish & chips, full english breakfast, some sort of curry and cheeseburger flavours?? The regular flavours always taste so much better to me though.

Paprika is like the default taste for potato chips here.
When I was a li'l kid and I lived in a small village, there was only salt or paprika available in the local grocery shop.
Now I live in the city and it feels like there's some new temporary flavour every single month.

I've never been into the crazy limited edition ones. I've never tried bolognaise or pickles flavour either. And I cannot stand bacon flavour. I'm not a fan of pig flavour anything really. But, I accidentally ate a handful of bacon crisps once and they repeated on me all day, it was horrible.

Going for a Nando's today. Cannot wait. Very Happy Dunno if everyone knows what that is. It's a Portuguese chicken restaurant. And it's amazing.

I'm on strict diet now, due to kidney related health problems. No red meat, no dairy, no chocolate, no soda/energy drinks, very little sugar/candy, very little alcohol. Sad

I've haven't been eating that much this past week anyway. Mostly just drinking water, tea with honey and lemon (but not black tea), and pomegranate/cranberry juice.

Aww! Is it for forever, or just until the stone passes? Has it not yet passed btw? It's been a while now.
Anyway, I hope you're feeling better than you did, and that everything clears out soon enough smile

It has passed (took three miserable days) but I'm not out of the woods. I'm prone to getting them, which is weird because I'm younger and in better shape than most people who get them. But 1.5% of people are just prone to getting them, so lucky me. I've really got to watch my diet forever now, and get the right vitamins on daily basis. My motivation is pretty good- avoiding agonizing pain and surgery.

But lets talk about food I can eat. I'm thinking about having a grilled chicken salad for lunch. I'll have to go buy some Craisins (dried cranberries) though. I love to put those in salad, and they are really good for me. And I think I'm gonna grab some pita chips while I'm at the store. I have a bunch of hummus but nothing to dip in it. I'm pretty much addicted to hummus, especially roasted red pepper flavor. Sometimes I cut up Peppedew peppers and put them in it. Have any of you guys ever tried Peppedew peppers? I just discovered them about a year ago and they are sooo good.

They're not hot, they're sweet. I like to put them on so many things. There's a "hot" sauce too yahoo

I'm really sorry about your predicament! Glad you're feeling motivated though, and I guess after a while the diet will be completely normal to you, and not something you'll have to think much about smile

I really appreciate your sympathy. Chocolate, cheese, roast beef, and energy drinks are hard for me to give up. I never should've started drinking energy drinks though. But I'll find ways of getting natural energy. Hopefully I just stop craving the other things. I was never a chocoholic anyways, but I do love me some chocolate covered fruit. And no more of those orange filled chocolate bars I mentioned before in this thread....I need to stop thinking about it.

Fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables with some kind of dip is way better than any candy though! Wink
I believe nuts are a natural energy source. And such things as sugar cravings goes away when you stop feeding your body with it.

I have never heard of peppedew peppers. Never even seen them. Don't think we have them here. Maybe in some of those foreign shops perhaps though, I never visit those. Where are the peppers from?

Apples are one of the best methods for natural energy sources; there's a bunch of studies that have found them to be as effective as a double espresso. smile

How are peppadews? I googled them and they said they were South African; I've only ever eaten Canadian grown peppers. Shrug

Peppadew peppers were only just discovered in South Africa in 1993, apparently. I've been seeing them sold in more in more grocery stores lately. There usually in the olive bar. The bakery/deli I work at a few nights a week was selling jars of them for a while, but they don't have any right now. They put them on sandwiches. They are really good on turkey or roast beef sandwiches.

Right now I'm eating some chicken chili. It was way too spicy, so I tried this thing someone told me about- putting a few drops of honey in it. I thought it was a really weird idea, but they were right. It made it a lot better.

You know I'm not supposed to drink apple juice, but apple cider is fine. It has to due with the way it's made. I love apple cider way more than apple juice anyways. It seems like it used to only be available in the fall/winter months, but now I'm seeing apple cider sold year round. A grocery store close to where I live sells apple-pomegranate cider. It's really good!

I'm definitely gonna have to look out for those peppers! They sound very interesting and worth a try, even though I'm a very picky eater.

Never heard of the honey tip before. Smart!

I made pasta sauce from scratch tonight and I'm all kinds of excited that it turned out delicious! I'm shocked that I didn't mess it up.
