    What food could you not live without

    There are many things that we humans eat, but what food would be the hardest to give up?

    I know some lactose intolerant people who eat dairy products every week because they are just that good. They eat, and then they end up throwing it all up later on. Its kind of gross, but it demonstrates how far people are willing to go to eat the foods they love.

    For me, I think it would also be the dairy. I love cheese. Live without cheese would be terrible.

    Let me know what you think
    Thanks

    Hi Dakine! :)
    Ah yes my apartment mate is lactose intolerant, yet she risks it and still drinks dairy milk.
    Next thing I know she's laying in bed because of a stomach ache!
    I'm not lactose intolerant myself but I prefer soy milk over dairy milk, and I always tell her to not be silly and just drink soy milk. But I guess dairy milk is one of the things she can't live without.
    I love cheese as well, but I think I could live without it.
    Reading your question, I just think instantly of my favorite food, which is SUSHI.
    I loooove sushi and I would eat it everyday if I could.
    Going to an all you can eat sushi restaurant is one of my favorite things to do (even though I always leave the restaurant with a 9 month old food baby ready to pop, and feeling nauseous cause I overate).
    Sushi is also a category, so I know I wouldn't get tired cause there's so many types of sushi I could eat.

    Much love,
    Elisa

    Hey, Dakine.

    I'd probably pick chicken.. Because there are so many different ways to cook it do make it taste a little differently.. And yes, I'd hate that...

    But what are the stipulations?? Like, am I on a deserted island or something?? If so, I'd definitely cheat. I'd find a fruit tree and I'd grow some vegetables... I love spinach, but I couldn't eat it all by itself.. Everyday..

    Or maybe salad.. That's a combination of things that make one dish, and I'm almost certain I could eat that for the rest of my life, but that's probably cheating the question, too!! Lol

    Fun question.. Have a good day!!

    Hey, Dakine.

    Potatoes! I feel like I could adjust to losing a type of meat or other veggie but NOTHING can replace potatoes for me. They come in so many forms and I love them all.

    I try to keep a low carb diet but when I have my cheat days, it's either something sweet or potato. But I can grow tired of sugar faster than I can potatoes. lol

    Have a great week!

    Hello!
    This is a tough one, considering there are tons of foods that I love! However, I would have to go with good ol' chocolate if I had to pick. I can hardly go a day without chocolate, because I have such a huge sweet tooth! I especially love really dark chocolate, because it has an extra rich flavor. Ironically, when I was younger, I couldn't really eat chocolate because it gave me migraines- I'm not really sure why- but now all those years of being restricted are over, and I rebelliously eat chocolate all the time. Now that I can eat it, chocolate would be the hardest food for me to give up. I guess I'm eating back all the chocolate that I missed those years when I couldn't have it!

    Hello!

    This is really hard to decide. I have a ton of favorite foods that I like, but the food that I could not live without will be PIZZA!! I love pizza. It's one of my favorite foods that I like. I could always eat pizza everyday if I had too!

    Have a great day!

    Re: What food could you not live without

    I can't give up chicken!!!! I couldn't ever be a vegetarian or vegan, I loveeeee me some chicken!

    Re: What food could you not live without

    Hey,

    the food that I could not live without is red meat, more specifically steak. To me there is nothing more delicious than a sirloin or prime rib. Especially when A1 sauce is included.

    Hey Dakine,

    I would have a really hard time giving up beef, especially for tacos. Beef is pretty much in everything anymore so I think I would have a hard time giving that up. I'm lactose intolerant so I definitely sneak milk products every once in a while, but boy does it make my tummy mad! I tried going without it, but it's really hard trying to find good replacements for it, though I have found Almond Milk to be about the next best thing. I think I would just not make it long if I couldn't have beef, because chicken tacos just aren't the same!

    Have a great day!

    Re: What food could you not live without

    I use to think I couldn't live without dairy. But being lactose intolerant I have cut it out entirely. I allow a cheat day every now and again and really pay for it in stomach pain.

    What I feel like I couldn't live without is Chips and Salsa!
    I love them! I absolutely love the summertime because I make my own salsa with extra cilantro. I add salsa to as many things as I can. My family makes fun of me about it all the time.

    I have to buy my salsa from Costco because I use so much. I get two jars of the Kirkland Organic salsa then I add more cilantro and little lime to it at home.

    I prefer a medium spiced salsa over the mild or hot.

    Have a great day.

    Asian American food.

    Re: What food could you not live without

    Hello,

    my favorite foods to eat is ice cream and I also like milk, but my stomach can't handle that so I don't eat much of it. My other favorite food is of course TACOS!

    Have a great day!
