Food that is worth the calories

i always get depressed seeing the threads about foods to avoid because they aren't worth the calories...let's talk about some that are worth the hit :)

for me, the wegman's pumpkin bread with a schmear of strawberry cream cheese on top is now a go-to for me (i'm sure i could make cheaper) - but my boss buys and i will always rejigger food in my diary to fit in a piece

    Wine... unless it is really really cheap or bad wine

    Pizza. I have switched to veggie pizza with no meat to save calories.
    Starbucks white chocolate mocha.

    Paella, eggnog (with adult additive), - wow - that's all I can think of. Most other things I can have small amounts and fit them into my calorie goals. PSA - don't look up the number of calories in Paella rice...

    have you ever tried moose milk? its a canadian beverage similar to egg nog - with ice cream, milk, rum, kahlua and vodka

    That sounds WAY better than eggnog!

    it is soo good! every year our canadian/australian/uk partners host a christmas party with all their respective goodies - and they make moose milk (the line is out the door) - but also the aussies bring the really good wine; desserts; poutine

    Rib eye steak is always worth it for me.

    Amen. Off the smoker after being rubbed with Sweet and Smoky rub. *drooling

    Hmm.. Foods where I'll always take the hit instead of trying to make them fit or passing them up? One I never pass up is caramel pecan rolls. The really big ones. I usually end up eating half now and half later. But at 600cals per half, they are kind of hard to fit in. And yes, a giant rib eye complete with a buttery baked potato slathered in sour cream and chives is always worth the hit as well.

    Chicken fried steak with gravy. I don't care if it's the only thing I eat that day besides breakfast and some green beans...it's worth it!

    Really good french fries. Most don't meet the "really good" qualification.

    Oh, and my mother's cheesecake recipe.

    I budget for a single scoop of a Baskin-Robbins premium flavor about once a month. Sooooooooo good!

    And potato kugel. I won't have it in the house; I'd eat the whole tray. But after synagogue services, there are refreshments; it's there, and I pre-log 1-2 pieces.

    OOh I forgot about cheesecake! My MIL makes a chocholate chip one that is to die for. Worth it every time!
