What's your formula?

While I like a wide variety of food, the meals I love the most seem to follow a formula: carbs + strongly flavored cheese + vegetables. That's why I said that the Greek dip I posted recently was my type of food. The Roasted Vegetable and Orzo salad I make also follows the formula, as does pasta with marinara and Parmesan. I have a risotto recipe with wilted greens, Gorgonzola, and walnuts that I make.

So, what do you think? Do you have a formula for your favorite combinations of food?

I tend to love just the meat and carbs... how UNhealthy of me.

If I wasn't trying eat healthy, I would probably never cook a vegatable except corn on the cob and that's a carb.

how sad.

I don't think our formulas were healthy either! I guess the key is finding foods that meet those "requirements" that are also healthy.

Oh yes - mine is very scientific:

salt + fat = happy fatty
