I also love plain Greek Yogurt with a little honey. My favorite so far this year that I have tried is spaghetti squash.

I think I'd have to go with quinoa.
Never heard of it until discovering it earlier this year.
Now I use it in so many things

Quaker Instant Grits -- lots of flavors

It's only 100 calories (much less than a packet of intant oatmeal) -- and it makes me feel full.

Plus, it's great with shrimp and spinach -- a low/moderate carb meal with lots of protein and few calories.

My favorite new food is scrambled egg white oats. I eat it almost every day, I freaking LOVE IT! My original response was going to be broccoli, but it's not new technically lol. However, I've never loved it as much as I do now. I eat like 5-10 lbs a week. Oh, and I have to mention Quest Bars. They are revolutionary. Amazing. Out of this world.

In 2012 I tried quinoa for the first time. I definitely will have it again in 2013 and beyond.

I ate a lot of Old Fashioned Oatmeal and although I'd had it before, it became my favorite food to fill me up in 2012!!

acorn squash--fixed any number of ways. one favorite way is to slice it, spray with Pam, dip in herb mix and bake in oven.

Porridge, since I found out that soaking it overnight in milk in the fridge with some dried fruits in it, and adding sweetener and/or other flavours such as cinnamon improves the texture and taste. It is really easy to cook in the microwave and chopped apple or other fruit or nuts can be added after cooking. It is even good cold in the summer!
Much healthier than the golden syrup and top of the milk we used to add when I was a child, and even tastier.

Avocados have become a staple and I am starting to use a variety of spices.

Also first tried greek yogurt in 2012. Yummy! I brought in acorn squash and spaghetti squash from my childhood as well as eggplant from years past. I'm having a great time with seasonal vegetables.

I also tried Greek yogurt for the first time this year. I LOVE it. The fat free plain yogurt is a perfect substitute for sour cream. I can't have fat free dressings or fat free sour cream or fat free "half and half." Many of the "fat free" things have fillers and crap that my body just cannot tolerate. Same with a lot of the "light" ones. The fat free Greek yogurts are pretty much the only fat free dairy things that I can tolerate.

ANYway, I've tried a lot of new things this year, and made quite a few of my own recipes on sparkrecipes-mostly to track what I am cooking without having to enter each ingredient individually.

I have noticed that overtime, my food interests have changed. I am experimenting more with things I have never eaten. This year I tried kale and quinoa, for example. But my favorite new food this year has been Greek yogurt. I really like the creamy consistency and the fresh taste. It is my go to snack and is often part of my breakfast. What is your favorite new food?
