Salt Lick

I love salty stuff to the max!! I can try and try to avoid it, but it is simply impossible for me. I rarely get tempted by anything sweet – cakes, candy, brownies – none of it appeals to me. What does appeal to me?? Fries, chips, cheese, Chex-mix, spicy stuff, jalapeños, salsa, potatoes…on and on. S.A.L.T and S.P.I.C.Y. The end.

So, I ask, what is a girl to do? I am forever rummaging through my WW snack suggestion book to find the saltiest/spiciest things possible for the lowest amount of points. I have to realize that this is just going to be my food downfall – I must continue to eat salt.

My main question is this:

Are you a sweets kinda girl?



or

A salty, spicy kinda girl?




Don’t forget to check out THIS POST to add any burning questions you might have for me! I will start to answer them tonight. I have to admit that ya’ll are really on the ball and asked some really great questions!

AND…

Tomorrow is the last day to enter the *giveaway* - enter before NOON tomorrow and the winner will be announced tomorrow night! I can’t wait to see who it is!

XOXO Have a great Tuesday!!

I am a sweets and salty kind of girl! You just so happened to post my faves on here too: cupcakes and jalapeno chips! Not together though. I just finished off that exact bag of chips the other night. We live in Texas, you gotta love the spicy food!

Sweets, Sweets, Sweets. But not so much the cakes and brownies...but cupcakes and CANDY. I HAVE TO HAVE IT.

Ummmm... I love sweet. I do like the spicy/salty but not the processed chip kind:)

I have this simple yet tasty snack that I love eating..

I take a tomato and eat it like an applie.. biting into it around the core. But before each bite, I sprinkle a dash of salt on it!

Healthy and yummy.. and S.A.L.T.Y!!

I am definitely a sweets kind of girl! I have a hard time putting down anything chocolate!!

I am definitely a salty kind of girl! I am constantly trying to find a healthy alternative to chips because I CRAVE them. Recently I've had quaker rice chips which are pretty good, but I still want some good old fashioned potato chips!

I am totally a sweets kind of girl. I have dessert once a day almost every day (really).

Most of the time, I'd rather eat dessert than a normal meal.

I just ate Kettle pocorn for lunch - sweet and salty. I'm a mixed bag. ;-)

MM said...

I am definitely with you on this one. I could go the rest of my life without eating any sweets with no problem at all!

Heather said...

I like BOTH!!! Double whammy :-\ I love chocolate anything .....REESE'S will be the death of me. I love chips and salsa/queso. Miss Vicki Jalapeno chips are my fav. I usually have to have salty then sweet. Chex Mix sweey & salty takes care of my problem :)

Have you ever tried Flat Earth Veggie Crisps? They have a ton of varieties and they are really good. They are also pretty healthy alternatives. I have eaten half the bag in one sitting and still haven't gone too crazy with my points for Weight Watchers. Here's the link: http://www.fritolay.com/our-snacks/flat-earth.html

Enjoy!

Want to sabotage my diet? Give me a red velvet cup cake with cream cheese frosting and some salt and vinegar potato chips. Yummm... Now I'm feeling all Homer Simpson and I hate that show.

Erica said...

I am also a salt freak! My mom used to tell me that I was going to "dry up and blow away" one day if I didn't stop eating it! LOVE IT!

Gretchen and Jimmy said...

Is it bad if I'm both!??!!? :)

Jennifer said...

I am a carb junky! Sadly a lot of the high carb foods are also high in salt. But I also wouldn't get in between me and my pure sugar (candy)! Perfect meal = chips and sweet tarts :)

April said...

Salty-sweet here! I like to combine the two. Popcorn and sour straws, chips and m&m's ... gotta mix 'em up til I am satisfied! :o)

Leslie said...

I'm with April.. I'm all about mixing them up! Sweet-salty... popcorn and m&ms... you name it! :)

It depends on the day. I do love crunchy food though. It's a favorite. I am a big fan of pretzels...mmm!

Jules said...

I like both, but I'd probably pick sweet over salty. I love them together. Take 5 bars from Hershey are the ultimate sweey & salty combination for me.

Look at my blog, you are mentioned!!

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh- you HAVE to try LIGHT Ruffles Sour Cream and Cheddar chips. They are a hidden WW gem with only ONE POINT in a 17-chip serving. (Typically, I'll have 3 servings considering a typical snack is like 3 pts!) They are DELICIOUS! They are BETTER than the regular Ruffles and extra crispy and amazing.
