I found this over at Not Rachael Ray

A is for Apple: What is your favorite variety?
My fave apple has to be the Pink Lady. Yummmm.

B is for Bread: Regardless of nutrition, what is your favorite type?
Undoubtedly garlic bread, but sourdough comes in second. Garlic Sourdough rocks my world.

C is for Cereal: What is your favorite kind currently?
I don't really eat cereal, but if I wasn't worried about my figure, I'd say Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

D is for Donuts: What kind do you fancy?
Maple bar and/or glazed old fashioned.

E is for Eggs: How do you like yours prepared?
Over medium. The whites or else I can't eat them. But runny yolks are key.

F is for Fat-Free: What is your favorite fat-free product?
Non-fat plain greek yogurt. Eat it for brekkie every work day!

G is for Groceries: Where do you purchase yours?
Safeway and Trader Joe's. But we buy all our fruit and veggies from the local Farmer's Market once a week.

H is for Hot Beverages: What is your favorite hot drink?
Starbuck's Soy Pumpkin Spice Latte. Even though it has the same amount of calories as my lunch (I didn't gain those 20 lbs I'm now trying to lose from nothing, ha!).

I is for Ice Cream: Pick your favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
Bailey's Irish Cream Ice Cream, duh! Needs no topping, but maybe brownie crumbles would be delightful.

J is for Jams or Jellies: Do you eat them? If so, what kind and flavor?
Yeah, not so much.

K is for Kashi: Name your favorite Kashi product?
I don't really eat much Kashi. I'm trying to stay away from most packaged foods, and although I have looked at their frozen food offerings, most/all cntain bell peppers :(

L is for Lunch: What was yours today?
It will be leftover Creamy Mashed Cauliflower with chives and green onions plus 1/2 cup black beans, for protein. And a pluot for dessert.

M is for microwave: What is your favorite microwave meal/snack?

N is for nutrients: Do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?
I'm a carb gal, myself. Bread and pasta, all the way! Even if these days it's the whole wheat variety.

O is for oil: What kind do you like to use?
We use canola mostly, but for meals that don't require high-heat stove setting, EVOO or Grapeseed oil.

P is for protein: How do you get yours?
Greek yogurt and cheese are in most of my daily proteins. We rotate our dinners and have shrimp or scallops and salmon once a week, chicken once or twice a week, tofu once a week, and pork or beef once a week.

Q is for Quaker: How do you like your oats?
Steel cut and slow cooked. With cinnamon and brown sugar.

R is for roasting: What is your favorite thing to roast?
GARLIC. I could eat it straight out of the oven! Broccoli comes in a close second.

S is for sandwich: What’s your favorite kind?
Mortadella, provolone, and avocado on an onion roll with mustard, lettuce, tomato, dill pickles, and extra extra extra red onions.

T is for travel: How do you handle eating while traveling?
I use travel as an excuse to indulge on new and delicious foods!

U is for unique: What is one of your weirdest food combos?
I have no answer for this...

V is for vitamins: What kind do you take?
Multi-vitamins, a few times a week since I almost always forget.

W is for wasabi: Yay or nay?
Yay! We made a new salmon recipe recently that called for prepared horseradish and wasabi. It was soooo good! Also, I heart sushi.

X is XRAY: If we xrayed your belly right now, what food would we see?
Coffee only right now, but I'm about to dig in to my brekkie: non-fat plain greek yogurt with 1 packet of Truvia, 2 oz blueberries, and 1.5 oz strawberries.

Y is for youth: What food reminds you of your childhood?
Cap'n Crunch and Kool-Aid.

Z is for zucchini: How do you prepare it?
With sausage in a garlic alfredo sauce over pasta. But I made a kick ass low-fat zucchini bread recently that was pretty darn good!
