I’m probably one of the pickiest eaters on the planet. A bit ironic for me to write a food blog, heh. Anyway, my pickiness especially kicks in when I get sick. I lose my appetite for everything except my staple foods. Yes, I do have “staple foods.” They vary a bit as I grow tired of particular foods and learn to like new ones, but for the most part, they stay the same and have been the same for a very long time. Since I still have this nasty cold (I’m hoping it’s a cold and not strep throat!), I’ve been living on these foods for the past three days. Especially the M&Ms. I’m sick so it’s okay. 😉
Courtney’s Staple Foods!
Dark Chocolate Peanut M&Ms
These are GOOD! I didn’t even like peanut M&Ms up until a few months ago, but now I am nearly obsessed with these little gems. Tough to find (I buy mine at CVS in big bags), but so worth it.
I joke around with my family that once I’m in college, I will live off cereal. I’ll go to the dorm cafeteria with a big plastic container, fill it with cereal from the dispenser, and sustain myself on that until I run out. I’m not a fan of sugary cereals (Cheerios and Kashi are my favs) but I’m a pushover when it comes to Cocoa Puffs. I have fond memories of filling a bowl to the brim with Cocoa Puffs and watching cartoons. Typical American childhood right there, haha. I turned out alright!
Jif Peanut Butter
It’s true- choosy moms choose Jif. My mom always bought it for me, and now any other brand of peanut butter tastes like salt. Ew. I’m a fan of the natural kind now- it doesn’t separate and it’s still sweet and creamy.
Again, I have fond childhood memories of this one. I remember sitting in preschool, watching another kid peel strips off their cheese stick. I was in awe that cheese could be shaped to form a perfect, yet malleable tube and packaged in a tiny plastic wrapper that even my nubby little fingers could unwrap. Perhaps I wasn’t that thorough in my observations, but I still like cheese sticks. I eat them with breakfast. Don’t judge.
