make you go.... Aaaaaaaaaah.  Or MAN THAT WAS GOOD, after eating them.  

This changes for me from time to time.  At least some of them do.  But I swear there are certain foods that after I eat them, I just feel like man I needed that.  Maybe it's my mind talking.  I don't know.  Or my tastebuds.   But some of the foods I don't think it's just tastebuds.  My first top food is a nice bowl of oatmeal.  And I don't add much honey, maybe 1/2 teaspoon (I've been upping it lately to see how I'd do and so far so good) and you can't even really taste it in almost a cup of oatmeal.  I mean a cup dry.  That's what I eat with some nuts and either cinnamon or carob powder.  But oatmeal has a real "earthy" flavor.  And I still think it's super great.  Meaning it doesn't taste like junk food, but I still think it tastes SO GOOD.  And my gut, heck my whole body just seems to go "MAN THAT WAS GREAT", like tony the tiger after I eat it.  I pray it is nourishing me in a good way.  And I think it is.

Another food I've really really liked lately is boiled parsnips.  I had some with dinner the other night and I almost jumped out of my skin I liked them so much.  I just peel, cut in big pieces and boil.  But man they are just out of this world to me.  

And finally, grapefruit.  I started eating it the civilized way by cutting in half, slitting the meat from the skin around it, and using one of those grapefruit spoons.  I don't add sugar or salt or anything.  But the other morning I almost came unglued as to how good it was.  (breakfast)

Those are all superfoods for me, btw.  I think they are all actually diamonds too.  And I'm thanking God for them and that I can eat them.  

So what foods are doing it for you lately?

I am feeling the same with grapefruit, love it!  Peanuts are a newie for me, a diamond I have never really enjoyed before now, but if i am really tired or craving sweets they stop the cravings and give me energy.  Pumpkin is filling and makes me feel good especially if peccorino is in the same meal (pumpkin was my most least favourite as a child All diamonds too!

I recently ate sliced rutabego, cooked in a fry pan sliced thin, a little butter and steamed.. delish..

no other food makes me  say I needed that.. because it would be on avoid, but early morning drinks feel good..

interesting question..  worth thinking about.  

grapefruit or any fruit is a pleasure to eat.. but saying I needed THAT- is not easy as that would be avoids..!

Interesting question..

I sometimes feel that I really need Vit B6 or now I seem to be enamored with Trehalose powder - especially on grapefruit.. makes it so sweet.  and I nearly feel that maybe it is solving my headache issues (hoping-but way to early to tell).  Yet I feel that it is deffinitviely 'working' on the outer layers of my head..kind of a place I never had 'felt' before..  If that where so I would say My body needed that..

but foods?  I can not think of any, other then avoids.. what a question.. glad you asked it.  I will need to keep a look out..

A good grapefruit for one.  I like to warm it a tiny bit (30 sec) in the microwave and that really brings out the flavor.  I don't sweeten it at all.  Another is a really good grilled buffalo or grass fed beef burger, as a sandwich with rice and millet bread or black china rice bread toasted with a teeny bit of mayo (I use Lemonnaise) and compliant salsa (the peach one from DL Jardines only has a little vinegar and virtually no other avoids).  I usually put a little tomato and some baby spinach on it and it's just SO satisfying.

Turkey or beef bone broth with veggies, rice, ginger, red pepper flakes.

A salad of sardines and mixed greens with compliant dressing (usually lemon, though I've been adding tahini lately for a flavor change).

Fresh pineapple.

Lunch to go from Whole Foods - sliced brisket (sans barbecue sauce) and sauteed kale or broccoli.

All supers and diamonds except for tahini, which is neutral.

Interesting how a few of us said grapefruit.  Maybe they're just good right now.  

I like seeing this.  For a while pumpkin was like that for me too.  Especially pumpkin and peanut butter or peanuts.  Pineapple does this sometimes too, but not as much lately.  Peaches have done it for me.  Frozen and baked in the oven until soft.  

Lamb has done it but now I'm leaning more towards beef that really does it for me.  And actually a good slab of Turkey has always made me go YEAH!!!!  That one is consistent.

My desires change depending on season, etc.  As long as the food is on my beneficial foods list, it is an opportunity food.  I really enjoy my SWAMI foods lists.

I do like adding the Trehalose complex to juice of my home-grown grapefruit.  My grapefruit doesn't get enough heat to be really sweet, so the added sugar really helps it.

I feel almost guilty that green peas (a diamond) are so easy to digest and make me feel so good. After all the years of struggling with those dreaded beans, these green peas are almost like cheating on all points! I adore grapefruit too, but I think I will have to wait a while before I can tolerate them regularly. Don't know what it is about me and grapefruit. Clementines are fine though. I swoon over ripe clementines (a diamond) the way I used to swoon over ripe peaches (a neutral now). I love raspberries and carob (both diamonds). Buckwheat, amaranth and millet are all wonderful! Diamond fish and turkey I adore! Now, I'm about to have a bowl of rice cereal, banana and rice milk. Yummy!

Oh man, sweet potato pancakes sound like something I could really get into.  How do you make them?

I think at the end of the day grapefruit is somethings I can say MY body needed that.. I certainly did after my pneumonia..

So what is it about grapefruit?

I think it feels like they neutralize the sweet stuff or the avoids I might have eaten..

Iwonder what they might really do for us??

Here are my current favorite foods:

grapefruit with pink sea salt
eggs cooked in ghee with feta & green onions
almond butter with carob chips
pinto beans & brown rice (either mexican bowl or stir fry with veggies & tamari)
romaine lettuce
avocado (this is my top food right now! yum!)
green tea
walnuts

All of my current favorite foods are beneficials for me.   I have been struggling with a sugar craving since returning from a ski trip where I splurged almost daily. But, I am proud of how much more vegetable I'm fitting into my days. I've been doing this since December of 2011 & each day it clicks more.

I'm glad it's getting easier for you.  Can you have dates or figs or prunes?  I eat these and I don't really crave sweets, like junk food.  I don't know if it's because I'll eat other stuff that's good, but junk food or sweet treats make me feel awful.  And even Dates I can't have more than a couple at one time.  But they are awesome!!!!

I love a bowl of plain organic yogurt for breakfast with pineapple or a cut up apple, walnuts, some dried cherries or cranberries and some cinnamon.  It tastes so clean and it is so refreshing.

It can vary. I remember how wonderful I used to feel after eating a big plate of chicken liver pan-fried with onions; cooked in either chicken fat or coconut oil. But chicken liver is now a black dot for me, and I suspect I got that great reaction to it because I wasnt' eating nearly as much meat (especially red meat) at the time. I've had similar reactions to beef, when I first started eating it regularly. I don't always get that "wow!  that was nourishing!" feeling from beef anymore.

I always feel wondeful after eating lamb, but it's REALLY expensive and hard to get locally, so it's an occasional treat. I wonder if it would continue to feel so wonderful if had it all the time and my body got saturated with whatever nutrients are  found in lamb.
