    Sometimes - actually, who am I kidding? - quite often, when it is cold or I can't seem to keep warm and I want a fresh salad, I end up heating up that salad in the microwave.
    If you're anything like my Mom, I reckon warm lettuce and cucumbers might appall you.

    Don't bother with whole wheat pasta.

    I prefer it, as long as it's a good brand. (Favorite: Bionaturae).

    so long as you enjoy it! in my experience, whole wheat penne or rotini isn't bad, but ww spaghettis and linguine doesn't do it for me

    I like whole wheat pasta (which I prefer depends on the sauce), but I also just realized I generally don't prefer long skinny pastas like spaghetti or linguine or angel hair. Prefer others like penne, rotini, farfalle, etc.

    Ohhh, the pasta shape is a CONSTANT battle in my house. My husband prefers long skinny pasta, and I prefer shapes.

    We have both had to compromise. I vetoed angel hair and he vetoed penne/mostaccioli/anything tube-like.

    So, we alternate between spaghetti (which I tolerate), and rotini or farfalle (which he tolerates).

    He gets excited when I say I'm making pasta for dinner, but looks crestfallen when he sees that it's "shapes" night.

    He's got a gluten intolerance, so we get gluten-free pasta and I can't taste the difference at all.

    I prefer shapes as well. can’t stand angel hair! My favorite are bow ties and wagon wells ahah

    Yes! Wagon wheels were my favorite! I don't eat pasta except Shirataki now though. lol

    As a noncook, I miss top ramen. It's one of those things I had to give up because one serving will ALWAYS be two bricks for me. :)

    Generally speaking, wild flavored products are excessive (i.e. flavored chips, yogurts, most packaged foods, etc.) plain is usually better... plain crackers + cheese, plain yogurt, etc.

    Generally agree with this: I like it plain and then add my own, to my own weird specifications.

    Haha, I am the complete opposite! I HATE unflavored things.

    Plain crackers? No thanks I would much rather have honey mustard, BBQ, herb, or buffalo flavored.

    Plain potato chips are gross and boring. I only like salt n vinegar, BBQ, sour cream and onion, buffalo ranch, etc.

    I never eat plain yogurt, I add my own flavorings.

    Plain coffee is gross, I only drink flavored coffee and I add tons of stevia, almond milk and salted caramel SF syrup.

    Plain nuts? Not as good as honey roasted, salted, or flavored ones! I am not a fan of plain roasted almonds but LOVE dill pickle, salt n vinegar, cinnamon sugar, or honey roasted ones. Same with cashews and peanuts. I love the flavored ones.

    Fudge is not good.
    Even homemade or from cutesy specialty shops.
    Tastes like something that someone forgot to bake, but not in a good way.

    I don't understand how people can eat eggs without bread. Except maybe hardboiled eggs, MAYBE...

    Don't you need something to "soak up" the heaviness?

    I never eat bread with eggs (except for a rare egg salad sandwich or with shakshuka or the very rare eggs benedict at a brunch place). I don't find an omelet (veg omelet with a little feta is my preferred egg style) to be heavy at all, and although I need something to help absorb the runny yolk in my over easy eggs, I usually eat them with some veg like broccoli, which does the trick.

    For me, bread adds cals without adding to my enjoyment and without adding to my satiety, so it feels like a waste of cals. If I add carbs to breakfast, it's usually fruit, or, much less often and only if I'm doing a big weekend brunch that replaces lunch, potatoes.

    Agreed. I do recall enjoying it on Mackinac Island, but that was likely a setting-specific aberration.

    I really cannot stand toasted bread. I love warm bread. But toast, nope.
