[personal profile] panda posting in [community profile] healthy_eating
Life has been crazy for me for the past 3 months, and I obviously haven't been paying attention to this comm. But I'm realizing more and more that if I want to be healthy and successful in school, a good diet is a necessary foundation. I'm on spring break right now, so I'm using the extra time to give my diet a little jump start. Doing daily posts to this comm again will help, I think.

I wanted to get us started back up again in a fun way, so how about in the comments people recommend something tasty they've eaten recently? Give a recipe, if you want, or just wax poetic about some really delicious food ;)

Also thank you very much to those of you who did check in posts over the past couple months. I really appreciate it ♥

As always, please warn for triggers and be respectful of your fellow community members!

Amy's cheese enchiladas are one of my favorite freezer foods, seriously. So tasty. The black bean and tofu ones are alright too, but they're better if after they've cooked in the oven for however long you grate some cheese on top and stir it in, if cheese is a thing you do. It helps with the texture, mostly. But basically: they are really tasty.

I recently tried these... um, I have no idea what they're called, they're these breaded-spinach-chickpea patties that you can buy at costco and then bake for about 10 minutes, and eat with greek cucumber and dill yogurt. (Also tasty with good potato chips.)

Anyway, they are amazing, and basically what I am planning on eating this weekend.

Also fake chicken nuggets with honey mustard dipping sauce, some cherry vanilla yogurts, some delicious beer and a lot of iced lattes. I cannot cook but for the weekend I have a well stocked fridge. Something to look forward to!

As I had written in the more recent post, the most monumental thing I remember eating was last Friday's lunch, when I had gone to the Burrito Loco in celebration of the spring break's beginning.
I had ordered the biggest chicken burrito available (labelled something in Spanish I don't remember - Guido? Or was that an 11th-century composer?)!

I don't know how they make those burritos - but I recall requesting no beans and no other yucky stuff. If I had STAYED in the restaurant I could have gotten on the wall since I DID eat the whole thing in one sitting, but alas, I had not - I had wanted to get better utensils so had waited to eat.

Worth asking, though! Maybe they could open something new around me.

(I shy away from low-carb stuff - when I eat, I'm trying to get back the carbohydrates I've lost throughout the day. @_@ Although I don't know officially what's going on - I'm not much of a dietician past the sense "eat what tastes good and doesn't make you vomit".)

Hahaha ;P

So that's why eating whole grain cereal is so important.

if everyone agrees, it's a good bet it's probably true.
Good rule of thumb, but not always the case! Have to be careful about that.

You can ask them to leave the rice out, but then your "burrito" bowl is going to be some meat, beans, salsa and cheese ... which isn't really a meal at all.
You don't know some college kids, the ones who have just gotten out of a strictly-regimented life.


You don't get the same "sugar high" that you get from something like a high-refined sugar food like a cookie or a Pepsi, but you also don't get a "crash" either.
So that's why it feels better to eat THOSE kinds of foods... *srsly learning!*

Thanks for both links! The first looks like stuff I've had to read for uni. Second easier.

I don't think any of my relatives are diabetic...
