Here is my initial thought about what food I could not live without: cheese. If you asked my husband he would say: Salt & vinegar chips. To me, when I really want to feel some food joy, I love a fresh loaf and bread and some aged cheddar. I think the chips stick in my hubby's mind because we do our best to eat healthy but when I crave the chips, move out of the way.

Maggie said...

congrats on the awards :) i could not live without... so many things. but apples, mainly.

VeggieGirl said...

Just ONE food that I couldn't live without?? Eeeek, I can't choose!! Well, if I had to, I guess Larabars :-D

ttfn300 said...

AK Mom said...

Congratulations on all your awards, Megan! You are so deserving of each and every one of them. :)
The one food I couldn't live without....would have to be pizza!!

greendogwine said...

You totally deserve all those awards my dear!

I could not live without baked fries (preferably sweet, but a regular will do just fine) - and anything MINT chocolate flavored!

Kristin said...

Loving your blog! Four weeks ago I would have said I can't live without french fries. My #1 guilty pleasure. But ultimately, I need crawfish. After moving way north of New Orleans, I don't have them near enough.

Reeni♥ said...

Congrats on your awards!! Garlic, no chocolate...

LauraE said...

ONE FOOD! That's very difficult to choose, but I would say a Key Lime Pie Larabar! Yum.

Thanks for the awesome blog and chance to win a prize!

Marisa (Trim The Fat) said...

Congrats on your blog awards!!

I could never imagine my life without bread. No way, no how! The low-carb life(although, I tried it!) was not for me :)

talesofexpansion said...

wow, you really did win a ton of awards -- nice job!
i could NOT live without oats (or banana or pumpkin or apples or yogurt or ...). i also could not live without cupcakes, but luckily i have one tattoed on my hip so that i will never have to, haha.

Barbara Bakes said...

That's an impressive number of awards! I think cookies are the food I would hate to live without!

Anne said...

Congrats! I could not live without oats. I love them so much!

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

Megan, congratulations. Awards are well deserved.

Rebekah said...

blueskyworld said...

I truly cannot live without Kabocha, apples, and raw vegetables. Sorry, I just cannot choose one out of those.

GREAT giveaway! I LOVE surprises~

Jennifer A. Wickes said...

I can't live without hard-boiled eggs, avocados, edamame, coffee and red wine!

I LOVE YOUR BLOG.

~Lydia~ said...

Our current food we can't live with out is: Chicken Spinach, pumpkin and coconut oil. All pureed to a fine blend. This may seem odd, but this seems to be William's current favorite. Coconut oil is because it MCT fat that's easy to digest and absorb so he gains some good weight, and the pumpkin makes the chicken and spinach combination palatable for him right now. ;)

Bob said...

Congratz on your awards! Just one food I couldn't live without? Oh man... uhm, pizza. Totally.

thebrunettebaker said...

It's fun to see what everybody answers when a question like this is put out there :) For me, it's got to be Choc. Chip Cookies! With a glass of milk and I'm all set.

Kiki said...

Congratulations!

I love surprises! :)

Hmm, just one food ... broccoli, no seriously.

carolinebee said...

great awards, you SO deserve them :D!! I can't live without bananas definitely, aaand PB!

Grammie2maddie said...

I think the one thing would be evoo - olive oil. I use it for EVERYTHING I cook.

lilveggiepatch said...

I would love to say something virtuous, like broccoli (which I love, yes, but probably could live without), but I absolutely canNOT live without chocolate or bread. Can't do it. Especially when they're beautifully combined in, say, a pain au chocolat or a chocolate chip brioche? Pure heaven.

Congrats on the awards!

Neena said...

I could not live without plain, sweet, unadulterated milk chocolate. Yum.

katklaw777 said...

carrie said...

This is a tough one. I have a cliche answer for it though. Chocolate. Plain and simple. Gotta have it.

Lesley said...

Congrats Megan! The one food I couldn't live without would either be oatmeal or Pink Lady Apples. I have both of those everyday! Oh, I took your advice and got my own blog started as well! I figured I should make good use of this time while I'm out with my knee.

Jack, Judy, and Family said...

Oatmeal w/craisins, raisins, and milk in the morning...it's nutritious, inexpensive and easy. Something that hasn't left me since my tight budget days in college!

Mariposa said...

Susan said...

Marianne said...

Lori said...

You deserve every one! Congrats. For me it is pizza. There are just so many varieties in all different cultures. I find its the one thing that I really crave the most often.

Burp~! said...

the one food I can't live without? why only one? I have so many! lol! but here's what I thought of immediately: oatmeal. simple, heavenly, warming, comforting oatmeal!

Megan said...

o0o congrats on the awards! i could NOT live without bars. all bars. love them :)

the go raw bars are definitely good, but they're an acquired taste. my parents think they taste "too healthy." the banana and the flax bar are my favorites. the pumpkin is good too, but it's a little more savory. hope you try some!

Maria said...

Calm In The Kitchen said...

Congrats on all the awards, you deserve them!

It's a toss up for me, there are so many things. But, I would have to say that I would really miss cheese (any kind) if it were no longer in my life.

Passionate About Baking said...

Congrats on the treasure of awards Megan...how wonderful! I think I couldn't live without my cuppa coffee! Cheers (maybe I can add bittersweet chocolate to it, & make it one)

Bec said...

Thanks for posting on my blog, the vegan pb oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are pretty addicting! The one food I absolutely could not live without would be peanut butter, specifically all natural crunch peanut butter! It goes well with almost anything and is great in baked goods as well. Congrats on the awards:)

eatingbirdfood said...

The one food I couldn't live without is nut butters. When I was little I lived off pb and j sandwiches, now I like almost all nut butters and I put them on fruit, oatmeal, bread, etc.

Congrats on all the awards!

HangryPants said...

I think bananas. I love them,

Congrats on all the awards. You are a desrving blogger. :D
