    My "Favorites" go through phases of whatever I'm craving.

    I've been on a sugar snap pea kick lately. I can mow through a bunch of those. They're just so crunchy and delightful!

    Also, popcorn. I found a brand that is 30cals per cup and tastes very good. So half a bag (around 4 cups) gives me a large satisfying snack at around 120 cals.

    My other fave is shrimp and fish.

    Even if there is broccoli on it?

    I believe it is pineapple that makes it unhealthy.

    I have also known the sting of betrayal. My favorite kpop star dislikes mint chocolate chip ice cream.

    That's horrible! Mint chip is awesome. He's obviously a monster.

    As far as stereotypically healthy foods go (see, I'm getting back on topic!) I love a good stir fry. Easy way to get lots of yummy veggies in one bowl. And toasted sesame oil is amazing.

    My favorite stereotypically healthy food is still cheese, if we be going by the treeends of today.

    Steak! Good amount of fat, a lot of protein, great source of Iron, and tastes great

    Call me a heathen but I need peanut butter mixed with something. Jelly, chocolate, somethin'. By itself I like the taste but I feel like I'm going to choke on it. It's hard to eat.

    Lately my favorite "healthy" food has been a spinach salad with chopped apples and a lemon pepper creme fraiche dressing. The creme fraiche is not exactly healthy, but a little goes a long way.

    Did anyone else come from a family that overcooked steak and it scarred you for life? I remember having to choke that stuff down with gobs of A1 sauce just to make it palatable.

    Pizza....yes it's healthy!!

    I had calzones a couple of days ago (very close nutritional profile to pizza but with more carbs), and I was shocked by how nutritious they were. I rarely pay attention to single item nutrition, but I clicked on it by mistake and it turns out that meal gave me nearly two thirds of my nutrient needs for half my calorie budget for that day. I knew pizza was not devoid of nutrients, but I didn't know it was so diversly nutritious.

    My favorite healthy food is potatoes because they taste good no matter what you do with them, and they're my go to when I want something filling. So diverse and delicious.

    Pizza days are some of the easiest times I have meeting my protein goal.

    Yes, but then I got a smoker. ;) I don't think I could ever eat a steak off of barbecue grill ever again. My dad kills everything that he barbecues. Hot dogs are black, burgers are black and dry, steaks and chicken breast are leather. We try to take BBQ duty away from him and he won't let us.

    Yeah, and not just protein, it was over 100% of my daily needs for several vitamins and minerals and over 60% for several others.

    Sashimi along with a seaweed salad. I am lucky because I live walking distance from a sushi bar.
