Halvah. I had a friend in college who was addicted to it and I used to share it with her sometimes. Haven't touched it since.

Super intelligent critters after watching them I feel they are at least as intelligent as porpoises
How do you know they are smarter than you? What are the alleged dumb animals that you do eat?

To the OP's question, I haven't had good long smoked bar-b-que in over five years.

I can only think of liver, and Toaster Strudels. TS I used to eat obsessively. But then one day I burned out. 20 years on, I am still burned out. Or at least I think I am.

As far as beverages, I can only think of a Shirley Temple. It just never occurred to me, at 38, to order one.

Liver anything. I give it a try once every few years, but I can't. I just can't.

The animals I am permitted to eat are those with cloven Hooves and chew a cud along with all fish. But I am essentially vegan and seldom eat meat.

The intelligence of pigs is quite advanced. Ask anyone who has ever raised them. It is impossible to make a pig-proof pen and still be able to get in and out of it your self. If there is a way for you to get in a pen, a pig will learn how to get out. Every pig farmer I know has had experiences of having a pig outwit them.

But the most touching thing I learned about pigs is their apparent ability to comprehend death. To watch a screaming pig being led to slaughter is heart breaking. Also I have seen pigs that actually appear to mourn the lose of a loved one when one is slaughtered.

I had 2 breeding boars that were brothers and very close to each other. One got killed in a accident. I buried it. the other one found where I had buried him and dog him up. I reburied him several times. Eventually he had his brother's skull and carried it with him every place he went for over 5 years. At night he would lie down just staring at the skull and it looked like he was crying.

Here's fast food. Get a potato. Bake it. Stuff it with low fat cheese and sour cream. And serve with a tossed salad and oil and vinegar dressing. Add a side of asparagus or other in season veggie.

Pass on prepared fried potatoes. So bad for you!

Not to pick on you, but I suspect you should evaluate "healthy." I'm not sure what is healthy about a potato - and I'm not sure what is healthy about low fat foods?

Again, not trying to be rude!

Default I can't stand beef liver!

My mom who was an excellent cook would cook beef liver every now and then. She said her doctor told her to eat this when she was pregnant with my siblings and I, because it was high in iron and had other nutritional benefits.

Mother would start by frying bacon, then sliced onions and finally the beef liver filets which were soaked in milk, salt and peppered and coated in flour before.

I could only finish about half of the portion that was put on my plate. No matter how much I would drown each piece of liver with ketchup, I just couldn't finish it. Then a miracle happened! My mother who was always health conscious found out that liver was high in cholesterol. From that day on liver never, ever appeared on her dinner menu!

This doesn't count for this, but I don't think that I ate beef jerky at all for four years until two days ago (Sunday).
