I love salmon.
Simple wild-caught salmon.
It can be grilled, poached, smoked, sautéed, roasted, baked...
I could eat it every day, somehow or other, maybe sometimes in a tiny portion, and that'd be just fine.

I love lamb, too, but I wouldn't want to eat it every day.
Nor turkey.
Nor cabbage.
Nor sweet potato.
Nor bread.
Nor nuts.
Nor beets.
Nor noodles.

Generically speaking, I'd say I love salad (fresh, raw greens-based combinations of vegetables) and could eat it every day, no problem.

Maybe brussels sprouts  
Maybe grapefruit, but not peaches. Not even plums, which I love-love-love. "Too much", they'd be, y'know?

So, I'll say: Salmon, some sort of citrus fruit, and some sort of salad are things I'd be "willing to" eat every day.
That and a dollop of heavy cream.

Watermelon!  WATERMELON!!!!!!  ....Oh, wait, I'm probably saying that because I'm a tad thirsty right now *lol*.  It is true, though, that I never tire of watermelon.

I really never tire of the entire cornucopia of foods that make up my GTD galaxy, and that is a key to why this lifestyle is so sustainable for me:  as I blogged about once and this was basically the title of my blog, this diet is a JOY, not a deprivation.  All the foods are so nourishing, satisfying and delish, that it doesn't feel like a "diet" in the depriving sense that innocent word has come to mean in our society.  It feels like Thanksgiving every day!

All that said, I'm going to have to go with "watermelon" as my official answer!

I agree with PT....I don't really tire of the variety of foods that I can eat. I like some more than others, but I'm not bored with the diet at all.  There are so many different foods that if I went through every
group and chose a different food from each one every day, I think I would wind up with totally different meals every day for about a month.

But these would be foods I could eat every day....Almond butter, most salad ingredients, any bean soup, rice cakes, avocado, olive oil, ghee.

That's hard to say, it kind of depends on what is seasonal. I'm going to have some form of cheese or greek yogurt often. Fresh greens of various types. The fruits we grow during the seasons they ripen. I actually like turkey often but I seldom cook a whole turkey, more often grilling pieces of it or turkey meatloaf. I like dried beans at least 2 or 3 times a week. I live on the Gulf Coast so fresh fish is pretty easy to come by. I bought black plums today and I discovered dried pineapple a few months ago.

Actually the B diet is so varied and the variety is so good locally that I'd find it kind of shamefull to eat the same thing everyday.

Looks like I was grossly misunderstood.
I do not "tire of the variety of foods that I can eat" nor am I saying I'm "bored with the diet" or that "if I went through every group and chose a different food from each one every day" I personally wouldn't "wind up with totally different meals every day for about a month".

Don't know where that disconnect entered the picture, or why you answer this way?

But thanks for the little list, at the end, of specific Foods You Never Tire Of. The thread's title and the OP together, I still think, are pretty clear that that's what I was going for, no?

Try this on: If there were a food item you had to eat every single day, which one would it be?

Adzuki bean brownies that have pumpkin puree and are sweetened with glycerin! This is what I eat as my first meal of the day, usually after I've been up four hours or so. Who knew brownies could be so good for one's health?

Wow! What an idea! How to translate that into B-ness? Heaven!
There just is no bean like the Aduki.
But we can have chocolate or carob and whatever our compliant flour is, of course. But that Pumpkin hit really got me. Like a carrot cake spicy sort of thing. Like a carrot/sweet-potato pound-cakey kind of thing...with whipped cream or cream cheese or goat cheese on it, dear Lord...
Stop me.

Okay. The carrot date Manna bread, actually, fills that bill for me every blue moon in a leap year.

Craving silenced.
Sanity returneth.

Carry on.

The only food I can think of that I could tolerate every day is eggs.  Even with these, I change the way I prepare them.

Watermelon!  WATERMELON!!!!!!  


I love Watermelon too!!

Before, I used enjoy eating Durian.  Maybe in one month I would have 2 pieces. Then when I found out about BTD I stopped eating because I wasn't sure if it was good for my blood type or not. Then I got my Swami and found out it is one of my SUPERFOODS! WOW!!!

I was so happy to find this out that I went to get some right away. I ate 3 pieces of Durian that were just about the size of the palm of my hand in one sitting. But then I got gas and became very uncomfortable. My body said, "No no no, not too much!" That's how I learned.  Even though it is good for me, I shouldn't have too much or I will pay for it in the end!


Nutritional and medicinal ( I copy from wikipedia.org)

Durian fruit contains a high amount of sugar,[36] vitamin C, potassium, and the serotonergic amino acid tryptophan,[54] and is a good source of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.[44][48] It is recommended as a good source of raw fats by several raw food advocates,[55][56] while others classify it as a high-glycemic food, recommending to minimise its consumption.[57][58]

In Malaysia, a decoction of the leaves and roots used to be prescribed as an antipyretic. The leaf juice is applied on the head of a fever patient.[38] The most complete description of the medicinal use of the durian as remedies for fevers is a Malay prescription, collected by Burkill and Haniff in 1930. It instructs the reader to boil the roots of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis with the roots of Durio zibethinus, Nephelium longan, Nephelium mutabile and Artocarpus integrifolia, and drink the decoction or use it as a poultice.[59]

In the 1920s, Durian Fruit Products, Inc., of New York City launched a product called "Dur-India" as a health food supplement, selling at US$9 for a dozen bottles, each containing 63 tablets. The tablets allegedly contained durian and a species of the genus Allium from India and vitamin E. The company promoted the supplement saying that it provides "more concentrated healthful energy in food form than any other product the world affords

Also: Garlic. Onion. Parsley, Chives. Hearts of celery.

Other herbs (Basil, Cilantro, Mint, Rosemary, Dill) depending upon accompanying food, of course.

For me it would be potatoes; no, it WAS potatoes - every day, with butter. I never met a potato dish I didn't like. Sigh! But such is the power of this "diet" - I actually gave up potatoes (except for special occasions )

Now it is beef steak. I could eat it every day,and I do most days - with butter. So maybe the real answer is - BUTTER.

I could probably eat mangoes every day, but they are not in season all year here so hard to tell if I actually could.

Coffee It's the only superfood (diamond actually) I don't get tired of, everything else has to change. Even though I love fresh, wild salmon I would get tired of it if I ate it every day.

I could not be on the swami diet if deprevation of any sort were on the menu. And except for pistachios, all of my past food cravings are gone. The body knows...

I'm never too hungry with this stuff in the house:

Season brand sardines in olive oil, with brown rice snaps.
Mahi in Asian sauce with brown rice and cannellini beans.
Turkey Bolognese on Tinkyada brown rice penne with manchego cheese.
Hard boiled egg with sea salt.
Spring greens with garlic dressing.
Peas with ghee and sea salt.
Chobani yogurt.
Ezekiel sprouted grain cereal with hemp milk.
Pineapple juice with cranberry concentrate added.
Almond butter and vegemite on brown rice cake.
Red wine.
Dark (homemade-compliant) chocolate with walnuts and cherries.

Almond butter, the fresh kind from WFs; buffalo burgers right off the grill, grapefruit juice, eggs scrambled in ghee with nutritional yeast...yum

And of course, anything chocolate.  My latest fave is 85%, very dark with just enough sweetener to not be bitter - heaven and not nearly as addictive as the sweeter chocolates.

Oh, okay... Let me try again... Let's see...

Manchego cheese
Gouda cheese
Pecans
Olive oil
Oatmeal
Avacado
Carrots
Ginger
Grapefruit
Lemon
Cinnamon
Coffee
Red wine


BTW -  I totally agree with you that black dots need not be treated as avoids. According to our favorite doctor they are only avoids for your washout period, then my understanding is that they become like a neutral that should be re-eliminated if, say, you don't feel well or feel like you're coming down with a bug. There's a lot of wiggle room here

Oh man, this is soooo hard!!!!
I could copy Chrissy's list..love all those; or GR's coffee..me, too!; or like many of you, wild caught salmon. I could be addicted to cheese, like Chloe.
I adore cheese and fruit and all kinds of teas.
Well, I rotate my foods on purpose about every 3-4 days but the ones I eat almost daily are: peanut butter/almond butter
           fresh pineapple
           olive oil/lemon/romaine and arugula
           honey/tea/coffee

If I had to pick just one that I know I would never tire of.....almond butter.
