What would it be? I'm not talking about a treat, I mean something thats healthy, and all around good for you. My pick would be sushi. It has protien from the fish, carbs from the rice (even better if its brown rice sushi) and one of my favorite things in the world to eat!

What about you?

Good Choice!!! My Wife's relatives visited a few weeks back and we had a Sushi smorgasbord for lunch. Some of the best I've ever had. What is your favorite piece? I could eat anything except eel, but I especially love tuna and salmon. Can you really call shrimp sushi because it's cooked...

How about an egg white Omelet with onion, ham, asparagus, mushroom and cheese, over a slice of dry toast...Or breakfast burrito with all that stuff in it.

1% Milkfat Cottage Cheese is my staple right now! Great source of protein and the only healthy food I haven't gotten sick of after eating for a week!

Brown rice sushi?! That sounds fantastic!

My favorite go-to right now is refried black beans (Bush's Best makes 'em yummy!). Serving size is big, they're low in fat and high in fiber, and have a decent little bit of protein. And they're delicious!

I've had them lots of ways but especially love them between (spray buttered) corn tortillas, then warmed & crisped in a pan, or just tarted up with lime juice, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, maybe some salsa or green tabasco (sometimes even a little bit of colbyjack if I have room in my day) warmed in a bowl and nommed with baked Tostito scoops.

Seriously, how can you feel deprived with a bowl of THAT under your belly?!

It would have to be Flat Out pizza. The flat out wraps are thin and have my grains, then I would put tons of veggy toppings, tad bit of cheese, and some ground lean turkey. Yum..and not as many calories as normal pizza but more flavor for sure!

Grilled Shrimp Tacos. Some grilled shrimp, 2 extra thin mission corn tortillas, thinly sliced cabbage, salsa, a tiny sprinkling of cheese, a spoon full of beans, maybe even a spritz of Ranch spray dressing. SO GOOD!

I love flat out wraps! I'll have to try the pizza, I just saw the recipe on the package this morning when I was making a breakfast wrap.

My one thing would be fish tacos

I would have chicken salsa soup. (The recipe is on this website.) It's filling, incredibly tasty, really low cal.

I can't pick just one so my top choices would be: dark chocolate, shredded chicken tacos, crab, or sushi.

@tapeekcm - do you have a recipe for the sweet turkey chili?

Wait, was this supposed to be a "pick your fave healthy food question?" If so - FAIL!

~2 lbs ground turkey
1 green pepper
1 sweet onion
2 cans sweet corn
2 cans black beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 big container of sweet baby rays bbq sauce
1/4 cup honey


Okay might not be the healthiest chili in the world, but I love it!

I guess if I had to eat something that is actually healthy I would choose baked Tilapia.

In-season strawberries. Or raspberries. Maybe they could breed and turn into straspberries or rawberries or something, so I wouldn't have to choose between them.

Yeah, they're trying to make chocolate into the next super food on Yahoo. So I'm going to have to go with chocolate too! ...and Peanut Butter.....Reese's Cups. I pick Reese's Cups! Oh darn. That's not healthy at all.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
