Let's Dish: What Are Your Culinary Routines?

Let's Dish: What Are Your Culinary Routines?

Every Monday through Friday, at 11:30 in the morning, I like to eat a banana. I've been performing this culinary ritual for at least the past two years. I know I'm not the only one who has a food routine: for as long as I can remember, I've watched DearSugar eat a salad every day for lunch. And my brother enjoys a homemade smoothie each morning. As much as I love trying exciting new dishes, I find my daily banana a necessary comfort. How about you? Do you have a culinary routine? What is it?

Wow I love everyone's nutty habits!! I'm like FinnLover - I just have to eat what I feel like eating (the exception being I have to tell myself sometimes to put down the big bar of chocolate or not to open that can of Pringles). I like to listen to my body.

Nothing consistent except for at least one cup of coffee every morning. It's sad, but I will get a headache without it.

I mix it up, although I try to have fruit and veggies as a mid morning and mid afternoon snack.

GOTTA have my morning coffee and also my bowl of granola, vanilla yogurt, and either banana slices or blueberries mixed in. Lunch is usually a sandwich or soup of some sort...and dinner is always something new!

I have so many culinary rituals that it's insane. I have to have my cup of coffee out of the exact same mug every single day and I always drink it with French Vanilla creamer and Equal. I also always eat cut up veggies with salsa and yogurt every night while I watch TV, I always eat a salad with my dinner, and I have popcorn as a snack on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and yogurt with fruit on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays (I know, it's a little OCD). And for whatever reason, I always drink a Diet Coke in the car on the way to work.

Sort of. My breakfast either consists of a bowl of yoghurt with frozen raspberries or blueberries OR toasted rye bread with John West tuna with a twist of lime and cracked pepper topped off with some dark lettuce. Every morning i have to have an espresso, it gets me going ;)

I don't have food habits...I eat different things every day. I need variety to feel satisfied.

Every day, every meal is a certain culinary routine. I'm going to spare you the details because it's borderline OCD. :)

For me it is a great salad at lunch with lettuce, celery, red pepper, home made salad dressing, flaxseeds, a spoon of bacon bits and another of parmesan cheese. At night and in front of the TV I take daily a sugar free jell-o with a spoon of heavy cream on the top. I cannot live without these 2.

I definitely have set food habits - it's something I should probably work on, actually, since part of it is wrapped up in ED issues. Every morning, I have to have my porridge. :) I usually have a microwaved egg with an extra white, and a bowl with 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/2 cup water, a big handful of raisins, sultanas, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, and a sprinkle of goji berries. I can take or leave the eggs if we're out, but just try to stand between me and my porridge, heh. Depending on what time it is by the time I eat, I usually have to watch either Good Morning, E!, The View or Law and Order. I know you're not supposed to watch TV while you eat, but I can't help myself! And on Fridays, I have to come home, put my PJs on and eat a toasted cheese sandwich and tomato lentil soup while I watch TV again. My life is wild. :D

I like to mix things up, but I DO eat a yogurt with banana slices everyday at lunch. And my snack before dinnertime is usually artichoke hummus with crackers. But I mostly enjoy variety and tire of the same foods all the time!

My first meal of the day has to be breakfast regardless of the actual time of day. It can vary from cereal to eggs to yogurt... as long as it's breakfast related, it goes. I cannot start my day without something "breakfast-y".

Reading all these has made me realize I have absolutely no culinary habits - unless you count grocery shopping. I drink different types of coffee or coffee beverages and never at the same time or day. Sometimes I eat breakfast, sometimes not. I positively loathe food monotony. In fact, we have pizza every Friday at work and I can't stand to look at it anymore because I need more variety. The only food quirk I have I guess is that I don't like to run out of stuff so I buy it before it totally runs out if I catch it in time. But I don't really even do that so I guess I'm just food habitless...

A fried egg over toast with jam is my absolute fav! I can eat this any time of day, everyday, and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand in my embarrassingly empty section of the fridge.
