I’m doing a totally non-scientific, very casual study.
Are you a full fat, low fat or no fat eater?
I’m a mix. Some things simply require full fat. Nuts and seeds, obviously Butter. I won’t use anything else. Oil is hard to make low fat in cooking *g* although there are always substitutes (veggie broth for sautéing, etc). I don’t use mayo as a rule, but my husband swears that low fat or no fat mayo is the work of evil, so I bow to his taste on that. I’m cool with low-fat cheese, if it doesn’t have to be melted. So it’s great sprinkled on tacos or on a sandwich. Sour cream is one of those things I can’t tell the difference on at all – full fat to no fat, it all tastes wonderfully sour to me I adore fat-free feta crumbles on my salad, actually a lot more than full fat.
How about you? What are some low fat/no fat recommendations that you love? How about things you refuse to ditch the fat for? Are there any absolutes in your pantry?

I like to try new recipes. I found a yummy, healthy, easy vegetarian (vegan?) recipe in the Cooking Light dinner’s ready! cookbook. I definitely recommend it. You will not be surprised to now I made a few changes. I made it on the stove top instead of in a slow cooker, and I served it [...]

What do Albert Pujols, Joakim Noah, and I have in common? It ain’t athletic prowess or the big bucks. Nope. We all have plantar fasciitis. Ever had a pain in your heel and possibly the bottom of your foot, a pain so intense that your knees buckle because your feet won’t support you? Yeah, that’s [...]

Are you one of those people who can’t remember their dreams or do you have full, vivid, technicolor dreams? I’m a little of both, in that most nights I don’t remember a lot of what I dream, but I do remember snippets – usually odd stuff, like people out of context or doing things you [...]
