{5 Points} Foods I Could Eat Forever & Ever

In Colorado, one of the bloggers I was with asked what food we’d pick if we could only eat one food for the rest of our lives. My instant response as I snarfed down my second bowl of mac and cheese in two days was, of course, mac and cheese! But then my mind kept populating with other delicious food stuffs that I’d be totally okay eating forever and ever and so then I figured I should make a list, because really, lists are my favorite.

1. Mac & Cheese. No, but really. I could eat all of the mac and cheese and one of the top goals on my life list is to eat mac & cheese in each of these United States. I’m not picky when it comes to mac & cheese. I can eat simple mac & cheese, made with velveeta, or even out of that fabulous blue box, but I can do fancy mac & cheese as well, with truffle oil or bacon or brie or apple or special and spiffy noodles. I don’t discriminate when it comes to mac & cheese.

2. Tacos. I shared with you all my favorite taco recipe and I honestly, no shit, have probably eaten those tacos once a week for the past six months. Really, the only thing that keeps me from eating them more often than that is my fear that I will get sick of them although I don’t know anyone could get sick of something so magically delicious as those damn tacos. All that said, I don’t discriminate when it comes to tacos either. Tacos Carnitas, with some lime and cilantro, is what I order each and every time I go out for Mexican.

3. Popcorn. I probably pop myself some popcorn 2-3 times each week, on average. It’s one of the few foods I crave that I don’t ever have to feel guilty about eating because popcorn isn’t that bad for you. In fact, it’s kind of good for you. I’m of course not talking about the shit from a microwaveable bag or from a movie theater, I’m talking about real popcorn kernels popped on a stove with a little bit of oil or in an air popper. I want the real shit. I don’t want no chemically altered pseudo popcorn. I want it freshly popped, drizzled with a touch of olive oil, then sprinkled with salt, pepper and a little bit of garlic powder. I might not discriminate when it comes to tacos and mac & cheese, but damn if I’m not a connoisseur of fine popcorns.

4. Cheese. If there’s a cheese plate on the menu, I’ll order it. One of my favorite places to take people in Richmond is Secco, this fabulous little wine bar with an ever changing list of meats and cheeses. They’ve got cheese from goats and sheeps and cows and occasionally other milk-producing critters, and it’s amazing. I love cheese. It’s that simple really. I want to eat all of it. Friends of mine who have ever had the pleasure of sitting around my dining table know that there’s always some bits of cheese that can be brought out for nibbles, no matter how short the notice of their arrival. There is always good cheese in my fridge. Always.

5. Avocados. Along with cheese, there’s almost always a few avocados in my fridge. I put them on everything. On the tacos and in my salads and also, there’s guacamole, which really does taste better when made fresh in my own kitchen. Avocados got that good fat so I don’t have to feel too terribly guilty about eating them. Sometimes I just cut one in half, sprinkle a little salt and pepper on it and eat it because really, that creamy green goodness is fabulous enough to stand on it’s own.

If you had to pick five foods to eat for the rest of your life, what would they be?

And yes I know sheep is the plural of sheep and that sheeps is ridiculous, but the thing is, I don’t really care. I’m a pluralization honey badger. Sheeps! Deers! Gooses!

  1. Mac & cheese and avocados would be on my list, too. Along with (good) pizza. And overeasy eggs. I can’t decide on a fifth thing, although maybe I would make it a vegetable (which I love!) so I didn’t just feel icky and bloated from eating nothing but pizza and mac & cheese all the time. 🙂

    1. I had to add the avocado at the end just to make up for all the gluttonous goodies on my list. And pizza – that would definitely go on my extended list!

  2. I love everything on your list. If you’re ever out here, you need to come to my favorite taqueria, Cuerrnavaca. They have 3 vegetarian tacos for me (chiles and cheese; chiles, potato and cheese; mushroom and cheese) but I have heard their al pastor (roasted pork) is to die for, too. They have three kinds of salsa in the salsa bar – hot, hotter and really pretty darned hot.

    1. That places sounds amazing! Also, now I want to try and make some mushroom and cheese and potato and cheese tacos at home because both combinations sounds absolutely amazing.

  3. oooh, avocados and cheese are on my list for sure, but i would say fruit in general. can’t just pick a few! 😛 i know, that’s cheating, but whatever. honey badgers unite.

    1. Eff yes, honey badgers! And I think fruit would be on my extended list, too. I’d put fruit medley on there just to be sure all my fruit bases were covered.

  4. I am right there with you with the mac n cheese. And cheese in general. There are so many foods I love I’m not sure I could narrow it down to just five. Potato salad. Chocolate cake. Hash browns. Egg mayonaise. Tomatoes. Peas. Stuffing. Jam tarts. Blueberries. Proper British fish and chips. Food is goooood.

    1. Mmmmm…hash browns – oh how I love hash browns! And blueberries – I love blueberries so, so much, and they always seem so special when I get them since they’re only in season for a little bit and only taste delicious during the summertime.

  5. oooh mac and cheese! I love pasta and cream sauces (ultimate comfort food with some grilled chicken), and rare steak w/ blue cheese & walnuts. Blue cheese on anything.
    And I wonder why I have a hard time getting in shape! 😉

    1. You are the third person I’ve met who is allergic to avocados this year. It makes me SO sad that an avocado allergy is a thing, but it’s SO WEIRD that I’ve met three of you in the span of just a few months.

      1. That’s funny–I’ve never met another kindred spirit, though I brought up my allergy on another healthy living forum and several chimed in and said they have the same. Apparently, it ties into a latex allergy–some main component that is the same, and if you’re allergic to one, you’re generally allergic to the other. Who knew?

        People get REALLY offended when you tell them you’re allergic to avocados. “How can you not like/eat avocados?” Um, I did–often–until I developed an allergy as an adult and wound up in the urgent care center in Hawaii after eating a huge batch of them!
