If you were addicted, or had to be addicted to a healthy food, what is it?

Why do we always get addicted to the bad stuff? Or at least it seems this way.
For me, I think it would be apples.

You?

    Water!!! If I could want water the way I want 'not so good' drinks that'd be great 😄

    Me too! I feel like I have to force myself to drink water. I only really want it when its hot and I am thirsty or when I eat something dry.

    MUSHROOMS.
    White button, King Trumpet, portobello, miataki, shitake, puffball, hen of the woods, or the holy grail: morels. :-)

    Yum! I haven't had morels in years!

    Beans, I guess. I already eat them 4-5 times a week.
    I wish I liked fruit more. I don't dislike it, but don't like it enough to want it regularly.

    Vegan pizza with gluten-free crust
    Black bean brownies
    Dry roasted edamame
    Mango rice
    Quinoa pilaf with currents and almond slivers
    Banana ice cream
    Avocado smoothies

    You can have it all on a plant-based diet.

    I agree! Easy to make some totally delicious treats healthfully.

    But, I'm already 'addicted' to whole foods too....vegetables in particular!

    Ditto! I LOVE broccoli, cauliflower, Tofu, leafy greens, raw nuts, Plant protein powders and Meyer lemons!

    Cabbage currently. So yum for so little calories.

    I am currently so obsessed with cabbage! Never really had it until a few months ago and it's my current favorite food. I'll probably eat it until I burn myself out then move onto something else, but I love it! And you're right. You can eat massive amounts for super low calories. 👍👍

    I've been on the same obsession....it's red cabbage for me - it's an everyday (if not every meal) thing for me for the last year! lol

    Do you eat it cooked or raw? I like cooked with corned beef buy raw overall. I eat it with salt. Now I am going to add this to my grocery list👍👍

    Salad generally, but I already adore them. Cooked greens, and same.

    Cooked. First I had it a few times in the air fryer as "cabbage steaks" (which come out amazing BTW), but now I generally just slice it into strips (600g) and saute it in a pan. I don't use oil or anything. I just add a few squirts of liquid smoke while it's cooking. Then after I put it in a bowl I put G. Hughes Sweet Chili sauce over it. So so good. I've been having it almost every night for dinner for a few months now without signs of burnout yet. I just switch up my sides with it every night.

    I love to cook bacon, then sauté cabbage in a little bacon grease.
    I also love it in stew.
    And raw, sliced very thin for salad.
    And——

    I could use more 🥬 greens.... a kale addiction would be helpful.

    I never had cabbage steak. I will have to try that! Sounds good! Thanks for the info!
