Junk Food Thread

Someone on the Random Thoughts theead suggested we do a Junk food thread. I was thinking about this yesterday when I was treating myself to a Fruit Tart and a cup of Iced Green Mint tea (admittedly, that's not junk food but it was a jice compliment to the shortbread, custard and berries) and decided to start a thread!

I love to bake and cook and DH and I also enjoy snacking so, even though I eat healthy most of the time, I LOVE junk! So here is a place where we can post recipes or pics of delicious indulgent treats or even support each other to find healthy yet tasty alternatives!

I'll start! DH and I invest in Nature Box because they have a wide varitey of healthy snacks. Also, last night a friend and I went out to a fancy dinner and I enjoyed some duck confiet pasta which is DEFINITELY junky!

Re: Junk Food Thread

  • Homemade chocolate chip cookies. I've been craving them for weeks. Yesterday I finally gave in and baked a batch. I may or may not have eaten about 5 of them before they even had a chance to cool...

  • Okay, here's a healthy snack! The Ovia app posted a recipe today and I forgot how much I LOVE roasted chick peas. All you need is a can of chick peas. Rinse, drain, and dry off with a paper towel, toss with olive oil and any one of a number of different spice combinations, and roast in the oven stirring once or twice. They're awesome eaten alone or tossed into salads.

    Here's a starter recipe: http://www.chowhound.com/recipes/spicy-oven-roasted-chickpeas-30368

    I've done this cumin/chili powder combo before and it's yummy

    The one that was on Ovia today uses chipotle and garlic powder and then suggests squeezing fresh lime juice onto them before serving: https://www.ovuline.com/guide/2009/pregnancy-recipe-roasted-chipotle-and-lime-chickpeas?mode=3

    Here's garlic and parmesan, which sounds yummy: http://www.cleaneatingmag.com/recipes/classics-made-clean/garlic-parmesan-roasted-chickpeas/

  • I HAD TO stop before work to get a chocolate bar with toffee and some peanut butter filled pretzels. This thread came at the right time. I'm definitely having a junk food week.

  • @mthoomom I only ate 1, but it was a struggle between that and Boston Cream Pie. I ate 2 pouches of dried mangoes at lunch which aren't technically junk food but now I have ALL THE GAS!

  • @Sporty1216 what I'm really impressed by is that you posted this first thing in the morning. Ice cream all day!!! Yum yum
    Sporty1216
  • Oh, I should have had a bowl right then! I just took LO to the zoo and got a smoothie as soon as he conked out in the car, so that's a good second best. There WILL be ice cream tonight!

  • So this is weird... On the way home yesterday, I stopped at a Chinese restaurant for some takeout. There was a 20 minute wait, so I went to the grocery store next door to pick out a dessert to kill time. After looking through the entire bakery section AND the candy aisle, nothing appealed to me and I left empty-handed. The Publix employees probably think I'm crazy. Who stares at desserts for 20 minutes and leaves?

  • I just got some Dang's coconut chips in a box from Amazon... they are pretty durn tasty. Also, been on a mac and cheese kick the last couple of days. I am sampling several different kinds to find the best one. So far it's Annie's all the way. Even their gluten free variety which I bought accidentally, is delicious!

  • Oh, man. Mac n cheese. Yes! If you have a trader Joe's nearby, try their hatch chili Mac n cheese from the freezer section. You bake it in the oven and it is AMAZING!

  • @Sporty1216 don't threathen me with a good time :wink: 

    Right now I am enjoying Strawberry Greek Yogurt pretzels from Nature Box. 

    Tonight's Mac n Cheese was Back to Nature made with plain greek yogurt instead of butter and cheese. Also some chopped spinach and broccoli mixed in. The vegetables mean it's healthy!

  • As some sort of cruel joke I had a mandatory training session scheduled for 7am this morning. This required me to be up at 5am and I didn't have time for breakfast. Naturally, the only option was to go to Dunkin Donuts and get myself not one, but two, french crullers. I'm not actually a big donut fan, with this exception. I probably only eat them two or three time per year but they're soooooo delicious!

  • I am craving an Italian sub with hot peppers and oil. I have a salad for lunch, so I think I know what's for dinner :)
  • I ate my daughter circus cookies last night. you know the pink and white ones with sprinkles? OMG they are so good!

  • I am totally addicted to sparkling lemonade. After drinking way too much of it over the weekend, I'm watering it down, but still. I gotta find a new obsession with less sugar. :)
