    Default Foods you once ate that were not good for you...

    Let's start a list (don't be shy - I too ate one of those pickles from that jar at the local neighborhood store!)

    1. Briny Dill Pickles floating in that giant jar at the store. They'd pick one out for you (unsanitary no kiddin'). The brine was murky dark, the pickles huge and salty (high-blood pressure cookers!)
    2. Red Pistachios Nuts? They used to be dyed bright, some horrid #332 red or something. You never see those any more.
    3. Sassafras Tea! My parents made me drink that when sick. Isn't it a poison in large doses or maybe the root not the leaves (someone please clarify)
    4. White Castle Hamburgers... well they're are back to being good though not recommended - LOL!
    5. Candy Cigarettes? Chalky looking candy sticks that looked like cigarettes! Stuck to your rear molars like cement!
    6. ...............?

    I loved to eat freshly ground beef straight from the mincer. Totally raw. Mum would smack me and call me an animal.

    Hah! I have always subscribed to the Dick Gregory principal of eating meat: "If you're gonna kill it. COOK IT!" Well done I might add.

    I just remembered one: sticking my finger in the unbaked cake dough mix when my mother was not looking before she put cake into oven.

    Not good! Raw eggs!

    I’d drink raw eggs all the time until a bad one turned me completely off. Same for milk. Remember the day I stopped drinking a liter of milk a day. Sculled down a mouthful of gross curdled milk in the middle of the night. Barely touched it since.

    Didn't those "Orange Julius" drinks at the mall kiosk have raw egg in it?

    And speaking of raw egg...

    #6 The ORIGINAL Caesar's Salad...

    #7 Carnival Elephant Ears... known as Beaver Tails in Canada... "deep fried dough of death"!!

    Sounds like Kibbee or some stuff my brother the butcher used to make when he lived and worked in Rogers City. Chopped beef with a ton of chopped onion, salt and pepper. They used to sell it by the pound at the IGA he worked in and ate it on crackers. No one EVER cooked it.

    Still made to this day at Plath's Meats and IGA in Rogers City. Referred to as "chopped beef". Tastes great on a Ritz cracker

    I rarely eat steaks. I don't want to see blood in my food.

    And no ones doing rare chicken or pork for taste, are they?

    Maybe some fad in California......

    Oh yes. I have a favorite middle-east rest in Dearborn and the last time I was there they asked me to try a raw meat item (Kibbee) that looked great but I just couldn't do it......

    Cook my meat please!

    White flour and rice, sweetened cereals, fruit juice, bacon and all processed meat, canned soup, pickles, regular cheese, potato chips, ice cream, pizza, ribs, fried foods, pop etc. and basically anything that tastes good.
    Gave them all up after a heart attack last year. I don't miss them as much as I thought and the science is very sketchy on saturated fats, carbs, salt, etc. but since I had zero other risk factors, the only thing I could change was diet.

    Hah! Well that fills the list... LOL! I hear you. Awesome that you were able to change your diet so successfully!

    Try some of the yogurt ice creams. Some are quite delicious!

    Fruit juice can be diluted with soda water for a bit of sparkle!!

    My brother was the butcher at that IGA (I think the same name, but not sure) from 1968 until around 1976. He made a ton of chopped beef. I went Rogers every summer for 10 yrs. A lot of diving off that raft in the harbor.

    I would say about 75% of my current diet. I work out an hour a day so I seem to be getting away with it, for now anyway.
