    I prefer breakfast foods at Dinner and dinner type for breakfast
    Example- saute or steamed greens, veggie dishes in a.m.
    Pancakes, oats, cereal at night.

    Oh and yup- bacon is gross. Lol

    Watermelon and straight-up salt sounds weird, but I do know people who love watermelon with feta...

    Not me, though. Said it before in this thread but sweet+salty anything is not my thing.

    A tomato and watermelon salad with feta is good.

    Ehhhhh....I'll reserve judgment since I haven't had it but, in my head...
    Tomato + feta = good.
    Watermelon + feta = good.
    Tomato + watermelon...? I'm trying to imagine those together and it's not going well. :D

    Then just go with watermelon + feta + thin-sliced red onion + good balsamic vinegar. 😉😋

    I was skeptical before I tried it, but it was good.

    I have put salt on pretty much any kind of melon. Really fresh and ripe melons don't need it, but if the flavor is kind of blah a little bit of salt enhances the natural melon flavor. There doesn't need to be so much salt that it actually tastes salty.

    Doughnuts are hugely overrated unless it's a chocolate with red chille and bacon from Rebel.

    blasphemy... donuts are like, a gift straight from the heavens...

    Yeah, but Rebel donuts are a whole other level. They're all sick 😉

    Regarding donuts - I do not like filled donuts at all - and would prefer a cake/dense donut than a yeasted one...mind you - I never crave donuts in the least and haven't had one since forever lol!

    Generally speaking: I dislike burgers that have more than one patty.

    YES.
    What's funny is it's not the amount of meat that bothers me...I like a thick, juicy burger patty.
    But I don't like 2 skinny patties. Maybe it's because the thinner they are, the more they are guaranteed to be overcooked and tasteless.

    You don't need to use oil in pan/oven cooking anything and it's a waste of calories. I never understand why people would waste 100 calories for 1 tbsp when you can make it easily with just a quick spray of pam. I have never used oil when cooking in my entire life.

    I told this to my friend and she was shocked "omg you HAVE to use oil, how can you cook without it, do you use butter instead"?

    i rarely use oil when cooking because i use baking paper instead.When i do use it i only use olive oil and it's usually 5-10ml. I normally prefer using it on my food after it's been cooked, to get the full flavour.
    So yeah you don't need it for cooking but a little bit is good for you.

    I like the taste of olive oil, so for me, it's worth the calories to drizzle it on the vegetables I'm roasting.
