18 Unhealthy Food Favorites



Whipped cream. I dream of it.

Unhealthy eating, I know, I know. I've been warned about it. Chocolate filled croissant warmed in the microwave. A tablespoon of butter in coffee.

The hot, the melted, the chocolate. Gooey cheesy burgers. Toasted bagels with slathered cream cheese, double loaded mozzarella on pizza, chocolate drizzled over anything.

I do have unhealthy favorites, and I give in to them. Also, thank you so much for asking, they do make me feel good. Because, here they are:

A bowl of microwave melted Hershey's kisses and mini marshmallows.

Graham cracker S'mores, 23 seconds in the microwave.

Hot cocoa with a 5 second squirt of Reddi-Whip.

McDonald's will mix half and half of any flavor shakes for you. A half Arctic Orange with half Chocolate.

Sliced apples smothered in melted French Vanilla frosting.

All cupcakes.

All cupcakes. Again.

Hot dogs sliced down the middle and filled with shredded cheese, then wrapped in bacon and put under the broiler for 4 minutes.

Doritos sprinkled with taco seasoned shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, crumbled turkey meat, microwaved for 1:25, then dolloped -- twice -- with sour cream and guacamole.

Guacamole. Period.

One scoop of chocolate ice cream with maraschino cherries on top. It's OK because I said one scoop.

Girl Scout Thin Mints.

Boy Scout Cheese Pop Corn.

Instant brownie in a microwave with a surprise for you slather of raspberry preserves.

Lay's Thick Cut Vinegar and Salt Potato Chips stacked delicately atop sloppy joe meat.

25 27 crumbled crackers floating on top of a home made bowl of chili, heavy on the tomatoes.

A baked potato, nuked, and stuffed with bacon bits, sour cream, cheddar cheese and a touch of salsa.

A tall glass of Fanta orange soda served over a big fat scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. Close your eyes. Romance.
 
 
I wish you the occasion of joy and food, friends. In the way that hot fudge sauce warms me from the inside out.

  2. I have never experienced the CRACK that is Boy Scout cheese popcorn until just this year, when our neighbor kid came by shilling it. Oh, that stuff is dangerous.

    I may have to try that salt/vinegar potato chip and sloppy joe mixture...I imagine it's heavenly. My husband thinks those salt and vinegar chips are disgusting so more for ME!

  3. I didn't realize how hungry I was until I read this! I briefly discussed IBS with my doctor this morning, and she told me about FODMAP...go ahead and check it out and quickly understand why I will just continue to expect the unexpected and occasional discomfort! ;)

  4. Fritos crumbled up and mixed into chili. Do it once, and you'll never come back.

  6. Now I just want junk food. The Doritos sound fabulous. Chips and salsa are my weakness. My hubs likes little squares of cheddar cheese dipped in brown sugar. Delish!

  7. I might suggest that Guacamole is a healty food as it is 100% vegetable based and, per the Avocado website:"They contain nearly essential 20 vitamins and minerals & contain beneficial plant compounds like 81 micrograms lutein and zeaxanthin, which research suggests may help maintain eye health as we age". I read it on the internet, so it must be true. Now, if you want to talk about the giant bag of Scoops that I will consume in the pursuit of said guacamole...well...

  8. BUT I LOVE ALL OF THESE SALTY, SWEET, GOOEY, CHEESY, MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH, STICKY FINGER FOODS!

    Le sigh.

    Especially cupcakes. And cheese. Depending on my mood.
