5 foods I can’t live without

As part of the August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, this is the fifth post in a month long series of posts.

5 foods I can’t live without:  I will be totally honest and upfront and say that some of my choices aren’t 100% healthy and perfect.  But neither am I.  And I am trying to be ok with that.  A life without the foods I enjoy (in moderation, obviously) wouldn’t be worth it.  I don’t count water in this list, b/c it’s kind of a given, IMO.


1.  Coffee

Coffee.  I love you so.  <3



2. Ice cream.  I love it oh so much.  When I was home and depressed, it was my go to food every day.  Now, I try to make it a once every 2-3 week treat.



3. Salmon.  My favourite dinner food, period.  I love it grilled and plain.  I don’t need sauces or dressings.  Just straight up!



4.  Pizza.  Yummo.  (Did I really just say that?)  I love pizza.  I try not to indulge too much, but I did have pizza the other night, and it fit perfectly into my calorie goals for the day.  I wish I took a picture of it now!

5. Diet Coke/Coke Zero.  I know that it is not the best thing for you.  I know.  I’ve read all the literature on the pros/cons on drinking it.  I’ve cut down A LOT from what I used to consume (a 2 liter a day +) but I really like it and I don’t plan on giving it up 100% until a doctor tells me it’s the root cause of all my problems.  (I have given it up before.  For Lent and when I was being tested for 70000 different things re: my headaches.  Nothing changed.  My weight didn’t change, and I didn’t replace more food with it or anything).  I can give it up, I just choose not to.  Sometimes, I just need something different than water.  🙂

    I’m with you on the salmon! I eat salmon at least once a week. It’s such an easy, healthy food.
