The other day I mentioned in a caption to one of my many breakfast pics that I was trying to force myself to enjoy blueberries because they’re so very good for you. It’s not that I didn’t like them in the past but more that I found them overwhelmingly sweet and at times I wanted that crunchy grape sensation (Ilovethe crunchy grape sensation) when instead they produce that odd mushiness.
But after only four days of compulsive blueberries in everything, I kind of love blueberries now. What’s happening to me?
Also, I’m obsessed with fruit and raw food. I want it with everything. I naughtily got a muffin this morning because it was tempting but as I ate it I couldn’t help wanting the freshness and healthy rush of something a bit rawer. I’m starting to feel about fruit the way I used to feel about chocolate.
Which begs the question…what will happen when Lent’s over and the chocolate door is open to me again? I’m going to try to just eat dark chocolate (because it’s better for you) but I wonder if I’ll voluntarily pick the blueberries over the Galaxy… not something I ever thought I’d say!
Can I once again impress upon you how much I’m enjoying eating well and looking after myself? It’s really quite something.
Vegan wonders never cease! Vegan peppermint patties! I saw these “chocolate peppermint creams” from Summerdown Pure Mint at the Union Market near me and they looked so good, I thought I’d take a chance and check the ingredients! Lo and behold: They are vegan! At least as far as I can tell.
They don’t taste exactly like York Peppermint Patties, but they are just as good in their own way—maybe better. They are definitely creamier. Plus, Summerdown is super serious about their mint and you can taste it! I don’t know why, but I like it when someone is super serious about their mint. Really, I would eat a million of these in a sitting, they are so good.
You can order from the Summerdown site but it also says their products are available in the U.S. at Whole Foods and Dean and Deluca, if you don’t live near/can’t stand Union Market.
Darling, get me to Selfridges.
Or, you know, once lent is over.
The best salad I have ever made. SO GOOD and filling and nutritious!
