A is for Apple (and Artichoke and Avocado) #atozchallenge

 For the 2016 A to Z Challenge we’re going to explore twenty-six quirky ways to foster and expand creativity and imagination. 

I spent a day eating only foods/dishes that started with the letter A.

Breakfast was easy, an Apple with Almond butter. For lunch I had to get a mite bit more creative, but finally came up with Antipasto, which was better than I had imagined. For supper I had a delicious Avocado, Artichoke, and Almond salad which was simply delicious.

Snacks consisted:

Apples and Almonds dipped in Apple butter
Almond milk 
Ants on a log 
my rendition of antipasto
Eating only foods that started with the letter A was more challenging than I’d anticipated, but lots of fun. I forwent some of the easy dishes like Angel hair pasta, Alfredo sauce, Alphabet soup, and enjoyed coming up with more unusual foods. It was a yummy day.

Thanks for stopping by Noveltea! If you had to eat food that started with only one letter, what letter would you choose?

    Wow, that sounds like an interesting and difficult challenge for Day 1! Well I hope that the rest of your “quirky” approaches manage to indeed expand your creativity and imagination.

    Except for the ALMONDS (nut allergy), I'd be pretty much OK with this idea! Clever A-Day post. Thanks for visiting Fad to the Bone!

    Okay, so now I finally learned what “antipasto” is! (Although technically, it seems to be more of a course, or a meal, than an actual dish.) Just what is all that on the plate, anyway? Looks like black olives, turkey, bacon, dates(?), and I have no idea what the green stuff is.

    Living on just “A” would be a challenge. I think I'd pick “B” instead: that would cover bread, butter, beans, beef, and even burgers! 🙂

    Oh yes, B would have been MUCH easier! C would have been, too (cookies, cake, caffeine, corn chips, cheese, cupcakes, chicken….) I asked a friend to tell me “a, b, or c” and didn't tell her what it was all about. I figured that would add an extra element to the challenge. She felt kinda bad for picking a after she figured out what was going on. 🙂

    Yes, it is actually a course, but it fit my guidelines well enough for me to slide through. 🙂 On my plate I have artichoke, bacon, dates, lunch meat, and olives then there's parsley, pepper flakes, and salt and pepper sprinkled on everything. It wasn't exactly what the recipe called for, but it was the best I could do with what we had.
