    SO agree...love it all - however, I haven't ventured into the Natto thing yet. I'm sort of like @AnnPT77 in that I'm not sure if I want to bring home an entire package of the stuff.

    Gotta be careful, though: Can literally OD on selenium, which has a surprisingly narrow range of safe intake. I love brazil nuts. I don't eat as many as I'd like.

    According to those notorious conspiracy theorists (😉) at the USDA, "Brazil nuts contain very high amounts of selenium (68–91 mcg per nut) and could cause selenium toxicity if consumed regularly."

    Details here:
    https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Selenium-HealthProfessional/

    USDA says tolerable upper limit of 400mcg for selenium.

    Beetroot.
    Aubergine (eggplant).
    Bananas.

    Could eat all 3 of these things daily and be happy!

    Chickpeas. They have become a go to that I rarely ate prior to my husband wanting to eat plant based about 6 months ago. (He gave up after 2-3 weeks, but some of the dishes have become my go-tos.)
    Shredded cabbage added to stir frys. Add volume and texture for not too many calories.
    The frozen Salmon burgers from Costco (Trident brand). I eat one 3-4x per week with Cajun spices on it. I could eat it daily. High in protein and sooooo yummy.
    Colored bell peppers. I eat them raw, sautéed, roasted. Yum! Not a newer find for me.

    Fried bologna sandwich

    Reminds me of my favorite as a kid, fried salami sandwiches! I would either add lots of hot sauce or lots of mustard. 3l1xjysv2yac.png

    doable..but this cookie needs some more love in the oven to crisp the heck out of them (gosh...I'm entirely too involved in this...🙄)
