Looks questionable? Tastes great!

    I like to experiment with food combinations, likely borne of my lazy way of putting off grocery shopping. Sometimes I end up with really good combinations, and sometimes well... not.

    Lately I have been trying to isolate a food intolerance so I have eliminated a large variety of carbs, meaning more unusual combinations.

    My breakfast this morning:
    2/3 cup no fat cottage cheese and 1 cup Cincinnati chile; when mixed it looks like vomit, but it is very tasty as well as very high in protein. Surprisingly, the salt content is rather low, which is a big plus.


    Got any other odd combinations?

    you've tried both I hope, prior to judging, especially seeing as though this thread is all about food that 'appears' horrid but is actually good.

    Hehe, it does sound gross, and I am sure it looks like hell, but actually I can see that tasting pretty good. I'll bet the cottage cheese does something like sour cream does to chili cheese, yum.


    I have many, I grew up in New Orleans, but this is a health website icon_wink.gif
    So, I have a few to share:

    1. If you drink coffee, and sometimes buy the cheap stuff and find that it is a little bitter tasting, throw in a few (and I mean a few only..like an extremely small pinch) of salt grains in, you will find that it neutralizes the bitterness.

    2. take one day old or leftover white rice and make a bed of rice on a plate. Fry two or three sunny side up eggs, top the rice with the eggs and chop them up with a knife and fork on top of the rice and mix up- you want the yolk to make a sauce for the rice, sort of. Optional: Though I am not a fan, some like ketchup or hot sauce as well.

    3. California guys may not find this odd, but it is one of my favorite flavors:
    Make a veggie omlette, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and then top it with a dollop of Basil Pesto and toasted pine nuts. (I initially found omlette and pesto weird)

    4. I put Chobani Greek yogurt on baked potato (or baked sweet potato) - you cannot tell the difference between it and sour cream and you can get it fat free.

    5. leftover cold Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce on buttered toast as a sandwhich.

    6. Mango and cayenne pepper

    7. Chili pepper dark chocolate

    8. Cranberry Risotto. Make a regular Risotto and then add dried cranberries. it is subtle and amazing (Persian) ...which also reminds me of adding raisins to wild rice.



    Hahaha... I've prepared some of these "dishes" for myself and I can attest that they actually taste good. I would never have imagined that others would know the same "recipes". Quite surprising... I couldn't help but grin.

    Anything with pico de gallo is good. I've even used it to fill out a salad before when I ran out of veggies.

    Replace all instances of cottage cheese in this thread with skyr. Twice the protein and more creamy.

    Something I haven't had since I was a kid: Fried blood sausage with syrup (would probably be too sweet for me today)

    Peanut butter, bacon and cheddar sandwich on whole wheat bread.

    99% dark chocolate on top of a sizzling New York Strip.

    Spinach, raw old-fashion oatmeal, raw eggs, and vanilla soymilk smoothie.

    Fried Chicken and waffles (with maple syrup).

    Some consider my mixing of food as strange...

    I like to mix oatmeal with peanut butter so that I don't have to add sugar to taste while I get extra protein.

    Cottage cheese with honey to taste

    Cottage cheese as topping over toasted English muffins
