Running Dirty. Eating Clean. Loving Life.

5 Foods I can’t live without – August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge – Aug. 5th

I’ve made it 5 straight days of posting!!  So today’s challenge from the Fitness Cheerleader was to pick 5 foods I can’t live without.  Only 5?!?!?!?!  Anyone that has ever spent a day with me knows I’m an eater.  I could probably out eat Michael Phelps when he’s training for the Olympics.  That’s how much I love food.  I would last about 5 seconds on Survivor.  So if I had to pick the 5 foods I would gladly eat scorpions to get if I ever were trapped on a deserted island, here they are…

The 5 Foods I Can’t Live Without

1. Greek Yogurt – This is my go to snack.  It currently occupies about half of my fridge.  I’m not kidding.  If you don’t believe me, I’ll post a pic of my fridge, freshly stocked with Greek yogurt goodness.

2. Quinoa – Really, I’m not sure how I ever lived before discovering this wonder grain.

3. Cheese – I’ve posted about my love of cheese on here many times.  I love cheese.  This is why I fail miserably every time I try to go vegan.  This is also why I live just across the river from Wisconsin and put up with their crazy cheesehead shenanigans.

4.  Spinach – But is has to be fresh.  I still can’t do cooked.  Smoothies, salads, pizza, on burgers, in wraps… I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

5.  Frozen custard – Culver’s Concrete Mixer… Need I say more???

You couldn’t pay me enough to give up my frozen custard

  3. Frozen custard is SO good. I think Rita’s has a pretty good one, too!

    • I fell in love with it during college. We had little custard shop in town that did a different flavor each week. When I moved back home, Culver’s moved in just down the road. It’s one of my major vices, so I try to save it as a post training run treat.

  4. Greek yogurt and cheese didn’t make my top five, but definitely in my top ten favorites.

  5. Cheese is definitely a must-have.. and I’m totally with you on the spinach! It’s soo good raw, but wilt it up and ew.. just can’t do it. I had it once that was tolerable (with about a tablespoon of minced garlic..) but unless it’s loaded with garlic and butter, it’s not happening.
