I'm a huge asparagus fan. In fact, I recently found (by accident) a combination that when sauteed makes a sinfully tasty treat that you can't get enough of: Red onions, asparagus, and baby portabella mushrooms. A bit of butter/olive oil, garlic, and seasoned salt... oh MAN.

Love this mentality! And I love that Avocado is at the top of your list and that another user love asparagus as much as we do! We grilled a bunch Tuesday night and it was lovely!

Greek yogurt, goat cheese, laughing cow cream cheese, WW string cheese, veggie crips, flatouts, beets, salsa, pineapple, tomatoes, portabella mushrooms, cucumbers, Barilla plus pasta, spinach, frozen berries to keep drinks cold and tasty and bitesized dark chocolate bars!

Yum! Thanks for your help! This is getting to be a great list of things I can put in my kitchen and not worry if I eat them all up.

Yay! Such a good idea. Today, I intend to get a big bunch of a asparagus, because it's finally in season, it's super delicious, and I CAN have it! I can have LOTS of it!

I've really tried to switch my mentality to the idea that food is fuel for my body, not entertainment, but there's no reason why that fuel can't be entertaining and delicious too!

I find that it is so easy for me to eat nothing for a little while. There's no planning required, no guilt either. Unfortunately, it always leads to eating a lot of no-good-for-me foods.

I'm going to try this month to focus on what I can/should eat. There's so much research and many articles about what not to eat and why, but I need to think about what i CAN do these days or I get so sad and depressed.

I CAN eat all of the following and more and so, I WILL eat them. Help me make a list of what is almost universally good to eat (in moderation, of course) so I don't get so wrapped around what I shouldn't eat.

Avocados, apples, apricots, bananas, beans, broccoli, beets, brown rice, berries, bok choi, cantaloupe, catfish, carrots, celery, cauliflower, chicken breast, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, figs, grapes, jicma, kale, lettuce, mangos, mushrooms, nectarines, okra, onion, olive oil, papaya, peas, peaches, pears, pecans, peppers, pineapples, plums, pomegranates, potatoes(but only a little), pumpkin, radish, raspberry, rutabaga, shallots, soybeans, spinach, squash, sweet potato, tomato, tofu, turnips, vinegar, waterchestnut, watercress, watermelon, yams.
