Whether it’s something you always crave or food you are always down to eat, we all have our go-to foods that we choose repeatedly. A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What is your "go to" food? Old faithful when you are hungry or preparing to be hungry later if you will,” sparking lots of suggestions in the comments. Here are the top responses.
PB and J
You can’t go wrong with the classic PB&J!
One foodie shared: “been eating pb and j's since i was a kid…”
Another agreed, commenting: “This is also a staple in my diet since I was a kid too.”
Rice and Beans
One foodie shared: “Rice and beans, man. Super simple, super cheap, and the ingredients last forever so you can stock up and don't have to go to the store all the time. Plus its got a good balance of carbs and protein.”
Another foodie agreed sharing: “I commend this. I usually go the meat and potatoes route but that has me going to buy meat all the time.
No meat chili with rice is where I'm at now. Sure it takes two hours to make, but you can make a ton at a time, and it's delicious and filling.”
Many agreed that any kind of chip is the best go to chip!
One foodie shared: “Sour cream and onion are the best, though.”
Another suggested: “Trader Joe's has these black bean chips and they are fantastic to say the least.”
While many pasta dishes from mac and cheese to angel hair made the list. One foodie shared: “Angel hair is my go to when I am in a hurry. Tortellini is god's work in my opinion.”
Another agreed sharing: “Angel hair is good, but it depends on the sauce you're cooking it with. Can't put anything with too much nuance on it imo, doesn't have enough texture for it.”
Whiles some didn’t like calzones as much as they liked as much as pizza. One foodie shared: “I order a calzone. Every time. Same calzone, a buffalo chicken calzone from supreme's.”
One foodie shared: “I used to live by a corner grocery run by some Mexicans and they had the best tamales I have ever eaten.”
Slow Cooked Dishes
One foodie shared: “Slow cooked stuff. It sounds stupid at first because of the cook time. Last night, for example I cooked a pork shoulder for five hours in a few spices/herbs and a bottle of chilli cider that was going bad. I ate something else. I now have a large amount of really cheap but awesome meat I can add to food (tonight I ate it in a pasta sauce that took as long to cook as the pasta itself). It's there for me now when I want it. I'll freeze a bit for later. I've worked in some fine restaurants and the biggest difference between what they cook and what you cook is planning. They usually spend less.”
