Just cutting off 4-5 categories of food makes every curious person more curious to know about the “few” things I allow myself to eat. This post probably could be the answer to “You eat nothing!” remark.
Before I begin, I must notify that every person has some “I hate that food” food. So everyone is a picky eater in some ways and the proud statement of “I eat everything” is a lie.
Just like everyone else, I also have my own filter of choosing the suitable food.
- Is it vegan? Any product that DOES NOT cause any harm to any animals.
- Is it edible? Nontoxic, not damaged and correctly served.
- Is it healthy? Just try to stay away from flour, sugar, and some oils.
And if it gets stuck in the first layer of the filter – I am not touching that thing! Other two depends on the intake amount 🙂
Here is a list of foods I eat regularly:
- Grains. Ex. Rice, wheat, corn, oats, etc.
- Lentils. Ex. all of the dals.
- Beans. Ex. Kidney beans, soy, etc.
- Peas. Ex. Chickpeas, green peas, etc.
- Nuts and other Seeds. Ex. Coconut, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, etc.
- Fruits. Ex. Banana, mangoes… (all of them)
- Greens. Ex. Malabar spinach, spinach, purslane, etc.
- Vegetables. Ex. Onions and umm potatoes?
- Drinks. Excluding water: Sattu (a drink with the powder of roasted chickpeas), rice water (boiled), and a lot more.
- Other Musts. Three daily musts: 1 clove of garlic, a lemon, and a green chili.
The examples in this list contain only the items I eat regularly. It’s obvious that there are other things I eat occasionally.
At first, I thought to list down all the foods, but I am glad I came up with categories. Or else it would be an infinite post. There’s a lot of things to eat. And even if we exclude milk, meat, fish, and eggs – we could never fail to please out tongue or find it hard to get enough “protein”.
