    I think iceberg lettuce is underrrated. I love a creamy dressing and iceberg lettuce holds up nicely to a creamy dressing. Yes, low in nutrition but refreshing and crispy.

    Also, plantain. It’s a great alternative to potato/sweet potato/rice or any other starchy carbohydrate you may eat. You can boil it, fry it, bake it and it’s relatively low calorie.

    I like shredded iceberg on tacos. Also a nice wedge salad is good!

    Iceberg is my favorite kind of lettuce! I use it on wraps, salads, everything. Romaine is a close second.

    Animal crackers. You just never think of them when you’re hungry and want something sweet and good!
    But they’re filling and satisfy my sweet tooth, without making me want more.

    I think a few vegetables are underrated. Broccoli tastes way better than cauliflower and can be used for all the same things. Fennel, especially roasted with balsamic vinegar, is amazing and like a dessert. Butternut squash is awesome both savory and sweet. Of course there's one of my new favorites, the unpopular brussel sprouts also good roasted with maple syrup and Dijon mustard. Ha, mustard is another one, low calorie and great on all kinds of things.

    You know, I like a lot of seafood and somehow managed to get to 48 without ever trying them!

    I agree. Also, golden oreos.

    Love plantains!

    Also love plantains. Have 4 in my refrigerator now that I have to decide how to use.

    Given the shellfish discussion above, I have to note that my favorites are clams, although not canned or fried. Raw oysters are amazing. Mussels are okay too.

    Baby Ruth candy bars. I know people will always think it's "Doody!" but I'm with Carl.
  • lemurcat2lemurcat2 Member Posts: 5,662 Member Member Posts: 5,662 Member
    Maybe. I have a recipe for a black bean stew that includes them that I want to try.

    I must say a bit NO to raw oysters. Tried many times and fail to see what the fuss is about. It like eating a salty snut. Not gonna fool me again.

    Plantains? If green, peel, boil allow to cool, cut, smash, spray with oil and into convection oven / air fryer.
    If ripe, pure, add an egg, spread on parchment and bake.

    See, I prefer raw oysters over cooked. Some lemon and vinegar. Love.
