@ Pei
That actually sounds delicious. I'll have to try it.

What to eat with cottage cheese?

Ditto on the peaches and Fiber One! I like to put a bit of peanut butter in the cottage cheese, too.
-Sometimes I'll have it savory style with hot and spicy nuts, jalepeno olives, grape tomatoes, a little basalmic vinegar, tobasco sauce and pepper.
-Mashed boiled carrots/sweet potato/pumpkin with some honey and pumpkin pie spice is tasty fall treat.
-Cottage cheese with Peanut Butter and Co.'s Dark Chocolate PB with glazed walnuts and banana is amazing,

Shameful Food Secrets

Drinking pickle juice with Tobasco sauce mixed in it. Quaker oats from the packets (unflavored original) because their texture and flavor is just so much better than the kind that comes in a tall cardboard tub. I like to put French Vanilla flavored Splenda that's meant for coffee into my yogurt.
Libby's canned pumpkin straight from the can with a little bit of cinnamon. I haven't been able to find it anywhere! I've been told there was a giant pumpkin shortage D:
When I pop microwave popcorn, I like it burned slightly. Not quite charred beyond recognition, but just so that it's a brownish-grey with smoke coming from the bag. Then smothered in Tobasco sauce.

Are you a brand slave?

-Alvarado Street Bakery's sprouted flax seed bread. It has such a rich, nutty scent and flavor that it makes your car smell like a bakery on the ride home from the grocery store.
-Naturally More Peanut Butter
-Fage Greek-style yogurt
-Green Mountain Coffee
- Heinz beans
-La Tortilla Factory
-Green Giant

Why does organic milk taste "richer" than non-organic milk?

I agree that organic milk tastes richer. I bought some organic skimmed milk at the store after being on a vegan diet for 8 months, so I really had no memory of what milk tastes like. After polishing off that carton, I bought a different non-organic brand, expected it to taste exactly the same and I was surprised to find the non-organic brand had no taste whatsoever! I might as well of had a glass of water.

Can Spicy food be addicting?

Spicy foods are definitely addictive! Once you try it, it's like trying to get an alkie off the sauce (pun intended). I go probably go through a two bottles of Tobasco, a jar of salsa, and a bottle of Vietnamese chili garlic sauce a week! If it doesn't burn your eyes while you're cooking it, it isn't hot enough. ;)

Most disgusting taste (of normal foodstuffs)

I can't stand the taste of canned soda, greasy things like fries, burgers, chinese take-out, and pizza. Rich things such as frosting, mayonnaise, whipped cream, ranch, potatoes (sweet potatoes/yams are fine), and pretty much all pre-packaged things that kinda-sorta resemble food.

Peanut Butter

I use Naturally More Peanut Butter. It's made with peanuts, wheat germ, flax seeds, egg whites, honey and flax seed oil. None that partially hydrogenated nastiness. It has 10 grams of protein, omega-3's, and 4 grams of fiber! The wheat germ and flax seeds give it a good toasty flavor and a subtle crunch. I use it:
On bananas with a bit of honey
In oatmeal
On a whole wheat wrap with Vietnamese hot chili and garlic sauce. I discovered this combination by accident while packing my lunch for school. I spread some of the chili and garlic sauce on my sandwich and spread peanut butter on a wrap to eat for a snack. I licked the knife when I was done and caught a hint of both of the flavors together and the result was heavenly!
Swirled in cottage cheese or ricotta
