I spent some time over the weekend watching a favorite show, Alton Brown’s “Good Eats” on the food network.

Part of an episode on YouTube:

Eating is my second favorite thing to do.  🙂  I am 5’10” and never weighed more than 175, but if my health, and waistline, permitted I could plop down in front of one of those “all you could eat” buffets, assuming the food was well prepared, and eat my way through breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Being a diabetic, type 2,  my meal plan now consist of between 1,500 – 1,700 calories a day, and between 150 – 175 carbs.  The problem isn’t what I can eat but the size of the portions.  Once a week I go crazy and eat whatever I feel like.

1) Picking my favorite food product is easy, bacon, bacon, bacon.  I use to like BLT’s but realized I could eliminate the LT and enjoy the sandwich just a much.  Now I toss the bread and it’s bacon, on bacon, wrapped in bacon.

2) Picking my least favorite food product is also easy, smelly, stinky, cheese.  I can’t stand to be in the same room with Roquefort  or Limburger cheeses.  I like Pizza, cheesecake and a few other dishes made with a “mild” cheese odor, but I would die from starvation before I would eat Limburger.  Actually just smelling the stuff might kill me.

3) Having spent time in the Far East, where they will eat anything that they can grow or catch, I have tried some unusual food.  Insects can be found in most of the markets.  I liked the roasted ones, ants and grubs.  In Japan there is a restaurant where some of the food is still moving when served.  I have seen a lobster tail served with the tail still twitching.  They also serve what look like live baby eels, but I draw the line there.
