Being an ole Southern gal who was raised on sweet tea, I could never give that up! I know I consume way too much sugar, but I could never drink unsweetened tea! I also have a terrible sweet tooth, and just love to bake cookies and cakes.
Mine would be mild Mexican cheese dip. I make it myself with fresh diced tomatoes in summer and though I don't have it often I just can't seem to give it up. I have to have bacon gravy with fresh summer tomatoes at least once a year too! Sometimes twice.
Cream gravy! Even though I'm vegan, and now make this with chickpea flour, almond milk, and Earth Balance, it's still really unhealthy in terms of the amount of fat and extra calories it adds to whatever I'm pouring it over. So bad, but so, SO good.
I guess, Lisa, you are just a good ol' Gal from down home ! I love cream gravy - over biscuits is yummy. We always call it 'milk gravy', my Dad called it 'Sop', he was a lumberjack for years and that's what they called their milk gravy.
You'd be guessing wrong, Phyllis. I was born in NYC, and raised in LA, and never even heard of cream gravy until I was in my 30s. I thought it was disgusting, at first! But I came to love it, like many alien things I've encountered here in Texas.
Popcorn! I could give up a lot of other things such as sugary foods, but I could never give up the buttery, salty taste of popcorn. I know some people would rather have something sweet when they want a snack. That has never been the case for me. When I feel like a snack I want something salty and I have to have popcorn. The brand I really like is Pop Secret with Butter. I know the butter is not great for me, but I think this snack is probably better for me than something with sugar.
The hardest food for me to give up is BREAD .It's a cultural thing ,in Uruguay since you are a toddler you learn to go to the bakery early every morning with your parent or grandparent to get the bread for the day. It is almost impossible to meet a person from Uruguay who doesn't eat bread with his meal , whatever it is.
It would have to be eggs Phyllis. They can be used and eaten in so many way. Two out of every three of my breakfasts would involve eggs, either scrambled, boiled, poached, an omelette etc. Even when we go to town, I have a favourite coffee shop that does great "eggs benedict". I jut can't resist. Besides, I have my own hens...so homegrown eggs are best.
That would have to be chocolate. I am a devout chocoholic!
I'm also a bit too 'addicted' to nachos--vegetarian style--but the whole reason for eating nachos is the cheese, and that's a lot of extra calories from fat...and I guess the chips aren't so great, either.
