A - Z Food Challenge

As a member of TOPS, part of my yearly enrollment fee goes towards their magazine publication and each member gets a subscription. 

I will admit, not often do I really read it, but this time I did and there was a challenge in it.  This challenge lasts for a period of 4 weeks and in that time, it is encouraging you to eat an alphabet full of fruits and veggies.  The letters "u" and "x" are bonus letters only.

I started this challenge with both my girlfriend up north on the 11th and with my TOPS group on the 12th.  That does not mean I am doing double the amount of foods...I will be hard pressed to get through one round.

I just thought I would do a quick update as to where I stand in the contest.  I am pretty sure, HANDS DOWN, that I will LOSE!

(A) Apple
(B) Banana
(C) Cucumber
(G) Grapes
(L) Lettuce
(M) Mushrooms
(O) Onion
(P) Potato
(R) Raspberries
(S) Strawberries
(T) Tomato

Red - Week 1 (11th - 17th)
Green - Week 2 (18th - 24th)

Any suggestions for some of those more "obscure" letters?  I can't even begin to think of one that starts with "Z"?!?!


  1. Zucchini starts with a 'z' - eggplant (my new favortie) for 'e' - if you think of one that starts with 'Q' that is one i am stumped luck

  2. quinoa, halibut/havarti, Kale

  3. yams, watermelon...I guess the challenge is probably over by now!
