September 30 Day Blog Challenge - Days 19 & 20
Thursday, September 20, 2012
Oops! I slipped up and missed yesterday so I'm making it up today.
19. What 'unhealthy' food(s)/drink(s) do you refuse to give up? Any that you have given up completely?
I don't think I've given up any foods completely and I downright flat refuse to give up chocolate and diet coke. I don't drink tea or coffee, I don't drink alcohol and I don't smoke so chocolate and diet coke is my smoking and drinking.
We still have a takeaway at least once a month, either pizza or fish and chips from the local chippy. If we don't have a takeaway we'll eat out and if we eat out I'll have a pudding.
I still eat ice cream but not very often. I've only had one serving at home since Christmas and only had one ice cream when we were out over the Summer.
I still eat cakes and biscuits but I've usually made them myself so I know all of the ingredients which have gone in them and they don't have additives, unless they have ready made icing on them which is very rare.
20. What are your favorite healthy foods? What healthy foods have you 'discovered' along the way to better eating habits?
Healthy foods? I'm not sure that I eat any "healthy" foods unless you count the fact that I get my veg from a local organic bag delivery scheme so it is seasonal and fresh - they pick it in the morning and deliver it to me in the afternoon. I also try to get most of my fresh meat from the local butcher who sources the meat he sells from local farmers.
Apart from that, whilst I do use skimmed milk I don't always choose low fat or low sugar as I have found that where they take away fat or sugar they keep the flavour with extra additives and I'd rather have the higher fat/sugar and have a smaller portion than the additives.
