In case you’ve feared that, during my loco hiatus, my foodidentity (foodie + identity = foodidentity, right?) underwent any changes, Monday’s eats should assure you that I’m exactly as I left you.
While I do my best to embrace creativity en la cocina, I’m undeniably a creature of habit. When I find something I love to eat, I eat it. Often.
That said, I present to you: A Foodie Groundhog’s Day.
Because, if you’ve read The Foodie Diaries for a while, you are about to experience a post-long déjà vu deluge.
If I were una foodie inteligente, I’d have learned by now that cereal is not an ideal breakfast para mi because it takes me two to three refills of that grande bowl to achieve my desired level of fullness.
Alas, I still cannot resist the allure of knowing exactly what I want upon waking. So, when it’s cereal, I eat cereal. And add as many peanut butter chips and raisins as I can fit into my grubby little manos.
I’m still quite partial to manzanas as mid-morning snacks.
Despite the fact that an apple is an apple, any way you slice it, I still attempt to prettify my food.
On this baked beauty: hummus, Laughing Cow, roasted eggplant and roasted red peppers.
I still have not acquired the will power, nor the desire, to use hummus as an ingredient and not dip into it for some on-the-side snackage.
I’m still a freak of nature and thoroughly enjoy dipping grahams in hummus.
I’m still defying the laws of portion control and consuming nuts by the bowl. Opposed to blogland’s ever-so-popular nuts by the handful.
Lo siento, but a handful of nuts has never been enough for me. (Insert far-too-obvious TWSS.) I know those who suffer from snackface syndrome agree.
I do still try to abide by my principles of balance. And so, I countered my abundant snackage with some abundant saladage.
Sí, I am still all about the ensalada enorme for dinner.
In the mix: bag of baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, shrooms, onion, cucumber, celery, avocado, strawberries, balls and shredded ched. Still into dressing my veggies with honey and balsamic.
Still a full-fledged addiction.
I’m also still really into ensuring that carbs are included in every meal.
Lastly, here’s a sprinkle of déjà vu that’s included every post.
Never. Gets. Old.
What’s your eating estilo? Are you a creature of habit? Or do you an anti-meal repeater? I’m definitely a creature of habit. But I love experimenting with and tweaking my favorites—in part so I don’t bore you all, and in part so I keep my beloved tastebuds feliz.
Enjoy what’s left of your Groundhog’s Día!
