Wednesdays Question

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

Here’s this weeks question: Are you a healthy eater? Or do you go for the pizza, fried chicken with potatoes and gravy, or a greasy burger with tons of salty fries?

For the most part hubby and I are healthy eaters. When we fall off the wagon though it’s anything goes and we usually go for the really bad food. Not often, but now and then.

    I'm a healthy eater, but I also cheat sometimes. I didn't used to like candy much, I was more of a chips and dip person, but lately I crave sweets like they're going out of style.

    Great question!

    Give Little Bit a huge hug for me.

    And I hope you have a spectacular day!

      I have trouble with ice cream. Big trouble.

      You have a spectacular day too. 🙂

    Mostly healthy but I just eat too much 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 8:53 am at 8:53 am

      Me too Bearman, me too. 🙂

    I mostly eat baked chicken & fish and veggies & fruits. I actually don't tolerate fried foods well and I am allergic to shell fish so I only splurge on fried once a year when I am in New England… And it is always for fried haddock and fried sea scallops with fried onion rings. Nobody does fried as well as New England and nobody does seafood as well as New England. YUM. And I have my flights bood for next month. Seafood here I come! 😀

    Having said that, my weakness has always been CARBS – any and all dense or crusty breads, cakes, cookies, doughnuts… See? I just gained a pound thinking about them. haha!

    And portion control. bugger.

    Have a delicious day! xoxo

    • June 17, 2015 8:54 am at 8:54 am

      I have problems with CARBS too. Pasta, please pass the pasta and the bread. 🙂

    Because of health probs I try to eat as healthy as I can with a treat occasionally I agree with portion control if you can control portions you can almost eat most things.

    I'm off for a doughnut…..just jokin

    Have a portioncontrolledtastic day Sandee :-h

    • June 17, 2015 8:54 am at 8:54 am

      Portion control is the key and so very hard to do. 🙂

  5. June 17, 2015 4:18 am at 4:18 am

    I am basically a healthy eater or at least I try. I do go off on the wrong path at times but life is too short to be good all the time. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic day.

    • June 17, 2015 8:54 am at 8:54 am

      You have to have that cheeseburger now and then. I agree my friend. 🙂

    Now, I am a healthy eater. Down 17lbs since April 21st. I do still enjoy some of what you mentioned, but only in moderation. If I don't, I feel awful later. Just not worth it.

    • June 17, 2015 8:55 am at 8:55 am

      Way to go Lisa. I'm so proud of you. I can do that guilt thing too. 🙂

  7. June 17, 2015 4:49 am at 4:49 am

    I've gotten WAY better in my old age. In my 20s and part of my 30s I just ate whatever I wanted without a second thought. Now I'm way more hesitant to buy or eat the junk.

    • June 17, 2015 8:55 am at 8:55 am

      Me too Rose. I do remember eating whatever I wanted in my younger years. I didn't give it a second thought either. 🙂

  8. June 17, 2015 5:13 am at 5:13 am

    I am a strict vegetarian with disciplined food habits. I do eat junk food 3 or 4 times in a month onan average.
    Have a great day!

    • June 17, 2015 8:56 am at 8:56 am

      We eat very little meat anymore. Being a vegetarian is a good thing. Far healthier than the meat eaters. 🙂

  9. June 17, 2015 5:40 am at 5:40 am

    I love eating. Lately due to age and health, I have cut down on junks but cheats once in a while.

    • June 17, 2015 8:56 am at 8:56 am

      I know you do and you've shared some awesome food with us on your blog. 🙂

  10. June 17, 2015 5:45 am at 5:45 am

    I use to eat all that crazy food that would mess my system up but no more. Once I stated loosing my weight I now eat fish & chicken. I will have a steak once in awhile and I enjoy food when I go on my cruise but I'm now learning how teach myself the realities about food.After loosing 55 pounds I plan to never get back to 235 lbs. Yuk.
    Have a healthy enjoyable Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

      Hubby was that weight right before he retired. He's got his weight back down now. He feels better too. 🙂

  11. June 17, 2015 6:21 am at 6:21 am

    We are healthy eaters, "most of the time", we do have our times when we fall off and it will usually be domino s pizza or our favorite Greek restaurant. For me, baked stuff is my downfall.

    Happy healthy choices!!

    • June 17, 2015 8:57 am at 8:57 am

      You have to have your favorite something from time to time. We do the same except ours is Italian. 🙂

  12. June 17, 2015 7:12 am at 7:12 am

    We eat healthy most of the time but we don't rule out pizza or some other 'bad' food from time to time. A lot of the time we make pizza here at home so it's even somewhat healthy! Life's too short to not enjoy a treat every so often!

    Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday Sandee! Scritches to Little Bit!

    • June 17, 2015 8:58 am at 8:58 am

      I agree that life is too short not to enjoy the good stuff now and then. We do the same. 🙂

  13. June 17, 2015 7:12 am at 7:12 am

    Both! Because that makes life more fun 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 8:59 am at 8:59 am

      I agree Jen until your doctor monitors what you consume. Aging puts restrictions on some things. 🙂

  14. June 17, 2015 7:59 am at 7:59 am

    I'm an 80% healthy eater, but now I'm hitting at 100% because I'm studying for my yearly checkup. c-)

    • June 17, 2015 8:59 am at 8:59 am

      Yep, you have to study for those checkups. 🙂

  15. June 17, 2015 8:02 am at 8:02 am

    We eat healthy for the most part. Rarely do we eat fried food, although (me) growing up in S GA, fried everything was a staple in our diet. Good question!

    Big hugs, honey, and scritches to LB…

    • June 17, 2015 8:59 am at 8:59 am

      I was raised on fried foods too. It's the way of the south. 🙂

  16. June 17, 2015 8:38 am at 8:38 am

    Mostly healthy, but I do eat M&Ms every day. 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 9:00 am at 9:00 am

      Good for you Christine. M&Ms rock. 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 11:30 am at 11:30 am

      chocolate is on the good food group! Enjoy!

    • June 17, 2015 11:34 am at 11:34 am

      It is on the good food group. Good for the heart. 🙂

  17. June 17, 2015 8:39 am at 8:39 am

    Like the song goes, "I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n roll". I am eating much healthier these days than I did even last year. With that said, a great burger or pizza is never going to disappear from my menu. Nothing will ever replace country southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes and white gravy…nothing!

    • June 17, 2015 9:00 am at 9:00 am

      Mine either. Those are two things we have now and then. You just have to once in a while. 🙂

  18. June 17, 2015 8:45 am at 8:45 am

    Because i'm a sugar addict in recovery, i eat healthy. For me, it was a matter of losing weight and keeping it off so i can stay healthy.

    • June 17, 2015 9:01 am at 9:01 am

      For me too. I can walk past a buffet table and gain two pounds. Age just does that. 🙂

  19. June 17, 2015 8:57 am at 8:57 am

    When I cook, hubby and I are healthy eaters. When I don't cook, we're not. Fast food is so convenient – too convenient sometimes. 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 9:02 am at 9:02 am

      We shy away from fast foods. Rarely have them. It's so good though. I get the convenient part too. 🙂

  20. June 17, 2015 11:04 am at 11:04 am

    I am a healthy eater, but I do enjoy treats now and then. 🙂

    • June 17, 2015 11:31 am at 11:31 am

      Treats are a must now and then. 🙂

  21. June 17, 2015 11:29 am at 11:29 am

    we are pretty healthy eaters….everything in moderation- we do find we eat less meat than when we were younger. When we eat out it's still pretty healthy- I cannot remember the last time we ate at a fast food joint. That food tastes gross to us.
    Excellent question and do have a very happy day today…scritches to LB!

    • June 17, 2015 11:32 am at 11:32 am

      We noticed we are eating less and less meat too. Must be an age thing. We do love fast food now and then, but not very often. You two are both trim too, so not having fast food shows. Bravo. 🙂

  22. June 17, 2015 12:03 pm at 12:03 pm


    Sometimes I try to be a healthy eater. But, pizza sure sounds good.
    So does Ice Cream y-

    • June 17, 2015 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm

      It sure does. I love pizza. Now I'm hungry. 🙂

  23. June 17, 2015 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm

    I don't do much fried stuff, but I eat a variety. I'm good 70% of the time.. Okay, maybe 60%

    • June 17, 2015 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm

      I'm have the same issue. Lately I've been good about 60% of the time. It shows too. 🙂

  24. June 17, 2015 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm

    All these healthy eaters and here's me. I really do try but I love food of any kind. I guess that means my answer is no I'm not really a very healthy eater….lol

    • June 17, 2015 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm

      It's not easy being good. Most of the time I am, but our boating weekends send me over the edge. Oh well. 🙂

  25. June 17, 2015 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm

    Are you implying that pizza, fried chicken with potatoes and gravy, and a greasy burger with tons of fries isn't healthy?

    • June 17, 2015 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm

      Pretty much Binky. Unfortunately. Some of my favorite food right there. 🙂

  26. June 17, 2015 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm

    I love pizza and Mexican food, but I try to eat healthy. I just fail most of the time!

    • June 18, 2015 6:22 am at 6:22 am

      You're young and you can get away with failing most of the time. When we get older it's not a good option. 🙂

  27. June 17, 2015 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm

    We try but we always fail..hahaha! but we do try again and again 🙂 we love veggies though.

    • June 18, 2015 6:23 am at 6:23 am

      I love veggies and when it's hot that's a great meal. 🙂

  28. June 17, 2015 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm

    I'm basically a healthy eater (lean meat, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, veggies), since I re-joined Weight Watchers last August. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE pizza, fries, burgers, etc., I either avoid them now or make lower fat versions. Have a great day! xoxo

    • June 18, 2015 6:23 am at 6:23 am

      There are lower fat choices indeed. We need to give that a go. 🙂

  29. June 22, 2015 11:13 am at 11:13 am

    We're basically healthy eaters. Lately we're eating more unprocessed foods and trying to stay as close to natural as possible. Not always, but we're trying.

    • June 22, 2015 11:37 am at 11:37 am

      I agree, the processed foods are not good for us. Not one bit.We try to do the same. 🙂

  30. June 25, 2015 2:43 am at 2:43 am

    Now, I am a healthy eater. Before, not always. I have very strict food guidelines. (sorry so late to answer this one)

    • June 25, 2015 6:34 am at 6:34 am

      Sometimes our health dictates what we need to eat and what we need to eliminate. Sadly. 🙂
