Though I have never been fat, I can understand why some people get that way. There are times when I think there is not enough choice in the world when it comes to food, and I feel like I have eaten every type of meal at least 100 times–and then there are times when there is so much good stuff on offer that I simply need to try them all at one time. There are times when I walk around supermarkets and see sliced salmon for sandwiches, quarter pounders with cheese, honey glazed ribs, marshmallow covered pancakes, and toffee pavlova, and I want it all right now. Here are my favourite foods and why I love them so.
Toffee pavlovas are brilliant when still frozen
The toffee pavlova is already a brilliant idea because you have meringue on the outside that is crunchy and sweet, and you then have the cream on the inside, which is fluffy and fresh, and on the top, you have soft caramel. They are good as a fresh treat, but are great whilst partially frozen because the cream inside turns to ice cream.
Self-made pizzas using store bought pizzas
Buy a cheap deep-pan pizza from the frozen section at your local store. Buy some tomato paste and cream, and mix it to make a paste. Add a little seasoning to the paste and microwave it to make it warm. Stir it well and smear it on your pizza. Now add grated cheese and toppings. The once-mediocre store-bought pizza is now a homemade success.
Mixed sushi packets
There are mixed sushi packets you can buy in your local supermarket. They are not cheap, but they are also not as expensive as going to a sushi restaurant or bar. The great thing is that they usually come with a little sauce that you can use on them. Scoffing them down one at a time usually provides a mouthful of deliciousness. Even the vegetarian versions are delicious.
Frozen mixed fruits with double cream
There are boxes of ready-picked fruits you can buy. They are usually comprised of pickable cherries and berries. Wait until they are mostly defrosted and drain off the juices to drink on their own. Then, mix some double cream into the box of fruits and chow down whilst it is still cold. The cream will stick to the fruits because the cold makes it harden up and attach itself to the fruit.
Chinese and honey glazed ribs
These are just great to eat no matter how you make them. If you are on a diet, then throw them in a pan, add a little water and boil them because most of the sauce and grease will stay in the pan. If you are already healthy, then fry or oven bake them. You can even put them on a barbeque if you microwave away a little of their rawness first.
Sliced salmon that is eaten alone or on sandwiches
There is nothing finer than salmon slices so long as it is responsibly farmed, and it is even better if it is on offer. The slices can be eaten alone or on a sandwich. They are also fun to eat for lunch on top of a baked potato with added feta cheese.
There are so many great foods that it is tough to pick a favourite, but as a favourite snack, there is nothing better than tuna chunks in sunflower oil that has been poured into a bowl of mixed salad and then the salad has been tossed using the tuna and oil as dressing. It is a taste that never gets old and can be eaten at any time of the day.
