5 of My Favorite Foods

Hello everyone! I am officially done with 2 out of 3 of my internship rotations and one step closer to becoming a Registered Dietitian 🙂  (**currently dancing my happy dance**)!!!

I have decided to start a new series on the blog:  “5 of My Favorite Foods.” Every now and then I will share with you five of my favorite foods that I am “loving” at that time. As a person in the nutrition field a lot of people ask me, “well…what do you eat?” So, this is a way for you to get an inside look at what someone eats,who went to school to learn all about food!

Like I have said before it’s all about moderation. You can eat anything and everything as long as it is in moderation! I am not going to lie, there may currently be a carton of ice cream in my freezer…but it’s all about not feeling guilty and learning how to treat yourself every once in awhile 🙂

So, lets get started….here is the first installment of “5 of My Favorite Foods”:

1.  Peppers:

I used to never eat peppers, but now I can’t get enough of them! I love how vibrant and colorful they make my dishes look. Last Sunday, I cut a bunch of peppers, carrots, and onions so that I could make my Veggie Tacos all week long. It was the perfect quick and easy lunch to make during my busy week.

2.  Bananas:

Okay, so I used to hate bananas! I just have never liked the consistency. However, last week I was at an internship event and decided to try one again and loved it! I’m super excited about this, because they are a good source of potassium which I lack in my diet and are the perfect grab and go snack!

3.  Spinach:

So, I have been called a rabbit once or twice before! But, you know what? I am proud to eat like a rabbit and honestly truly enjoy it! Spinach is one of my favorite “rabbit” foods and I eat it plain, with no dressing, right out of the bag. (Like I said I’m a rabbit!) Also, a plus that it contains a lot of nutrients, including vitamin K and zinc.

4.  Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

This was my treat of the week! For Valentine’s Day I made myself some delicious dark chocolate covered strawberries and snacked on them for the rest of the week. And there’s strawberries underneath the chocolate, right?? 😉

5.  Sweet Potatoes:

This is another food that I would have never touched five years ago. Now, I can’t get enough of them. See, what happens when you try new things? I love turning them into fries or just popping them into the oven plain and eating every last bite of them. And they are a great source of vitamin A!

 

So, those are “5 of My Favorite Foods!”

Happy cooking and eating! And, stay tuned for more from the Picky Girl!
