8 Foods I Won’t Give Up Meme

On Slashfood, Bob Sassone recently submitted a post listing 8 foods he wouldn’t give up, no matter what. Inspired by his post, I give you the 8 Foods I Won’t Give Up Meme:

1. Cheese
This is at the top of my list. I love cheese. Sharp cheese, mild cheese, hard cheese, soft cheese, stinky cheese (not too hot on mold-veined cheeses, though). I love, love, love to taste something new every time I’m at the cheese shop or at Whole Foods (who has an EXCELLENT selection of cheese, btw – and won’t hesitate to cut the cheese exactly to your specifications). I’d sooner die than give up cheese. If there were such a thing as an all-cheese diet, I’d be so there.

2. Chocolate
Now that I’ve had truly good chocolate, there’s no going back. There’s just something about chocolate, it’s almost like a drug because no matter how crappy you feel, it instantly makes you feel happy. I wouldn’t be surprised if my chocolate purchases this year have paid for my chocolatier’s vacation. ;)

3. Meat
I’d be hopeless as a vegetarian. I just love meat too much.  There’s just nothing else like a thick, juicy burger or a huge, well marbled tender steak. I can understand ethical objections against eating meat, and I do my part by supporting local farmers who have all-natural, hormone free, grass fed organic, free range etc. And I’d be willing to slaughter my own if I had to. Still, nope, no way, not giving up meat. Saturated fat be damned.

4. Full Fat Grocery Items
I’m sorry, on some things, there just is no reasonable substitute. Mayo, sour cream, butter, cheese – you must all come to me in your natural forms, none of this reduced fat abomination.

5. Fresh Fruit
Freezing does bad, bad things to strawberries, raspberries, etc. No thanks, I’ll just wait until you’re back in season again.

6. Carbs
Any diet that tells me that having an extra cup of spinach is bad, bad, bad is not for me. I’ll compromise and try to eat more good carbs (fiber-rich foods, whole grains, etc) but give them up altogether? No way.

7. Bacon
Particularly Schaller & Weber double smoked bacon, which just makes *everything* taste better. Death on a plate, yes – but the foundation of many of my dishes. I couldn’t live without it.

8. Alcohol
Because let’s admit it, sometimes there’s just nothing else like a good cocktail. I’m no lush, but giving up booze completely would be a buzzkill.

I tag all of you. :) If you trackback, I’ll do roundup of all responses.
