What beneficial (or neutral foods) do you go crazy over or spend lots of time and energy in learning about and tasting new types of.  We all have foods, though not all the same foods, that we can celebrate.  Feel free to post your favorite types/sources/brands of your chosen foods.

I love chocolate and it's fun to try new brands. I'm also learning to like different kinds of olive oil. Wish I had the money to buy the small-label brands from Italy

Oh my...so many votes for 'chocolate'....as of now, I'm off the stuff...as I need to lose some weight and admit that chocolate is the only thing I eat which hinders me

But for the record...the best is: Cherry Green+Black!!!! I can eat a whole bar quicker than I could type this....

You can select more than one, if you want all of the above I would if I could have coffee or wine. I would be all over them! Can I classify Raja's cup as coffee?  If I did I'd have to check off that one too.  

I'd be too much all over wine. I have way too much genetic and epigenetic history of alcoholism (in other words, too many of my grandparents and great-grandparents had alcoholism issues) so when I tasted it as a rebellious teenager I knew after one sip that it was not something I could ever drink another sip of.  I guess I wasn't too rebellious since I really only wanted to tick off the older generation but didn't want to damage my future.

So I've channeled that interest into my other vices. I almost asked for a collection of sea salt for mother's day, but then I got a new stove instead, so I didn't want to ask for more than that. Olive oil...don't even get me started on it!

I forgot to include Water, but it appears I don't have room for it... I'm very picky about the flavor of water in different locations, always filter it, and love many different brands of sparkling water, and dislike a few. I guess water is never considered a vice...but it is a fascination of mine that I could spend a lot of money exploring.

I guess I'm not huge on chocolate, I can live without it for short periods of time, but when I find a new brand that is really interesting, I definitely get excited. I guess I need to go for the cocoa powder or nibs anyway, since the sweetened stuff is not good for nonsecretors, but it's the easiest to find in the more exotic brands.

I hate chocolate, absolutly hate it and have my whole life. I voted for sea salt which I am addicted to and eat plain and use small amounts of olive oil.

I would also add ghee which I use more than any other fat source

I have to choose "Other"...  
I'm not comfortable with alcohol, caffeine or sugar...  I have only enjoyed sweet chocolate before BTD and didn't care for even semi-sweet - too bitter.  

What I do enjoy is finding new or interesting ways to try vegetables and fruits.  I just did a stir fry with ghee, chopped onion, celery, garlic, curry powder and tofu.  I didn't do measurements with this one, but it was a large onion, 4 celery stalks, 3 big cloves garlic, a healthy sprinkle of curry, about 5 oz. tofu and enough ghee to keep it from sticking too badly.

On the side, I cooked a couple handfuls of frozen green beans seasoned with two large fresh horseradish leaves, ribs removed and torn into bite-sized chunks.  The horseradish/bean combination has and interesting smell while cooking, but a delightful twang for the taste buds.

This was a two plate dinner, but it is wonderfully light for dinner.  

P.S. - probably not an O type dinner!

Dark chocolate with cherries and almonds is my current fave.  I used to be strictly a milk chocolate girl but have given that up and have gone over to the "dark side'".  

Ofearghail - Not that I can eat it but I'm interested in the cayenne chocolate. Please let us know what the brand is and where you purchased it.

Pizza!

Food of the gods, to be sure. I try all manner of neutral crusts, including a portabella mushroom base.

Pizza! Nuff said.

I voted sea salt, green tea and olive oil.  Although I could add some more.  Since my diet is very simple, I place a high importance on eating organic and non-processed foods.  I drive 15 miles to buy fresh goats milk from a local organic farmer so that I can make yogurt that has no additives.

I order Spanish olive oil with a friend, so that we can get a good price at a larger quantity.

I have two or three kinds of unrefined salts in my kitchen, and love the subtle differences in flavor.

I make my own ghee from organic that comes from grass-fed cows.  (Straus)

I shop around with green teas, and love finding teas that taste just right.  

I love making gourmet smoothies with beneficial fruits and my homemade yogurt.

Out of the given choices, I would vote good quality sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.

I love Spanish Olive Oil also!

On a trip, I went to a steakhouse about a year ago that brought out the steak plain with a little platter that contained fresh ground pepper, an herb medly, and sea salt, the kind that is usually from France and forms its crystals in a pyramid shape. I was wild about it! I didn't try the herbs or pepper, I was too crazy for the salt. I still remember it vividly, and must get some for my kitchen.

Fresh herbs are also something worth celebrating. It's so worth growing some anywhere you have a little space for them, to liven up any meal with their beneficial goodness.

If you love olive oil and sea salt, I guess a salad isn't too far behind.  My favorite simple, but elegant salad is arugula, sprinkled with sea salt and fresh ground pepper (optional by type), and drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice.  The bitter greens and subtle flavors from all the ingredients are very nice together.  I don't know why I ever smothered any leaf with avoid-filled dressing, it's nice to be able to actually taste what I'm eating.

I picked wine and green tea. I enjoy going to wine tastings and tring out different flavors. I drink white wine because red wine, purple grapes, raisons & purple grape juice give me a rash.

I also try many different varieties of green and white teas.

So there you have it, I'm a drinker.

I have some Swedish sea salt I bought cheap in Netto - it's tiny pyramids as well.
I always have salt from Ls - that's my favourite salt - and last time I opened a new bag, a BIG salt-pyramid fell into the salt-bowl when I poured out the salt. Heh, they must have missed it, because the Ls-guys sell the pyramid-salt to restaurants for a much higher price...

I've pretty much given up buying chocolate. I love really dark chocolate, but one tiny piece is enough for me, and then I have a whole bar sitting around getting dry and gray and boring...

I voted for chocolate (the darker, the better), coffee (the darker the better), wine (the red ones are my fave - dark, rich, meaty), and evoo. I love salt, but I only buy Redmond RealSalt...I know it and I like it. I really don't use salt that much anymore, except in my warm lemon/salt water...as for green tea, I know what I like, but I'd hardly call myself a connoisseur.

What beneficial (or neutral foods) do you go crazy over or spend lots of time and energy in learning about and tasting new types of.  We all have foods, though not all the same foods, that we can celebrate.  Feel free to post your favorite types/sources/brands of your chosen foods.  

Interesting topic. I currently do not participate in this sort of pursuit, but I have thought about it and could see myself enjoying it if my life were different. Maybe sometime in the future.
