Its part of my Rasputin diet.


    As far as snack foods go, I love liver pâté. Smooth, chunky, herbed, peppered...smothered in globs of aspic, I don't care. I love it. On a cracker with some antipasto or some port salut or straight out the package, love it! The best, though, is straight up melt in your mouth foie gras. I will spare no expense!

    I figure I'm probably alone on this one.
    Trust me, you've got company on this one. I love pate on toast points.

    Best I ever had was in the Jules Verne Restaurant halfway up the Eiffel Tower with Kim on our honeymoon. Also the most expensive lunch in my life.

    Those ideas actually help a lot. Thanks for the suggestions!

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    I fear, however, that sometimes in our rush to the exotic snacks we neglect the classics. For instance, at present I'm munching on a ramiken filled to the brim with Cheddar Cheese Chex Mix. Washed down by a bottle of Tsingtao, it's a wonderful blend of the classic and the exotic.

    Mmmmmmmmmm...

    Lately I've taken to the flavour of a cashew sandie with a scoop of sugar-free butterpecan icecream.
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    Heeeere's Olesker! Hardcore! So the juice just becomes your meal replacer? Where do you find the time to do all the prep and then clean the juicer? I have a Lalanne juicer and it takes me forever to take a part a clean after use. I just don't have the time in the morning before work.

    Sword-of-Grayskull glad it helped.

    So, I decided to fix them and I have to admit....they were TERRIFIC!!!

    BTW, they are celery with peanut butter and raisins (for those that don't know).

    I fixed Ants Under a Rock for a mid-morning snack/ lunch today and it was Double "D"-licious!! However, due to my Lap-Band I was only able to eat 1 small apple slice (with peanut butter and raisins) and spent the next 40 minutes barfing

    I am happy I lost 100 pounds, but I sure do miss food sometimes

    Okay, I had to bump this thread.

    On a roadtrip with my family I've just discovered Bugles. Where have they been all my life?! Crunchy, airy by virtual of their ingenious construction, not too much salt and a distinct popcorny taste. I love them! My new favorite.

    Anyone else like Bugles?

    The Nacho Cheese Bugles are REALLY good. But since I too am trying to lose weight, my favorite now is a serving size of pistacio nuts. Dang serving sizes. Ha! I could eat the whole bag.

    Thanks for that, iron. I'll definitely try them. My teenager would eat Alpo if it had nacho cheese on it. Pistachios are an incredibly healthy snack, btw. Don't worry too much about the fat as it's good fat. You should really eat a serving of nuts or seeds every day.

    No, Judith, it's absolutely not a meal replacer. but my eating habits are bizarre -- lots of seeds and nuts throughout the day and Naturally More peanut butter sandwiches on stone ground wheat bread. Once in a while I'll spluge on half a rack of ribs and I do enjoy lean ground beef and lean steak.

    Maybe it's me, but I don't find it takes all that long to clean my juicer -- about the same amount of time it took me to clean my ashtrays twenty years ago.

    But I get what you're saying about mornings. I'm fortunate because unless I'm on a set shooting, I work out of my home. That said, it's perfectly fine to juice for the next day and store it in airtight (Themos) containers overnight. Now it's true that veggies and fruit start losing nutrients the second they're juiced, but if stored properly the loss is minimal.

    I just got a new Ninja juicer, and it's rather easy to clean. Right now I'm only doing a special protein shake with glutamate my doctor wants me on for my gastrointestinal health, but as soon as I'm allowed to eat fruits again, I'm going to expand my juicing palette. For the first time in six years I had a night without any abdominal pain, so I guess it's working!
