Veggie burger with naan... (with lots of chutney and black pepper and some lettuce because I need my green veggies)
And I'm drinking acai berry juice. :)

Might be a weird combination, but it's good, and the best I can do when I'm home alone and have to cook for myself :D

Bread.  :)

And somehow I've lost weight.  I thought I had.  Ten pounds.  How?  By focusing on everything else.  Haha.  Actually I think it's just the result of habit, little changes over years.  And I bet it will come back soon.  I think the jogging last weekend actually took some off.  I could feel it a few days later.

Replace the chocolate with plain cocoa.  It tastes about the same.

I did see Bobali, whatever those little pizzas are, in the store the other day.  I can't buy those though.

AND, yesterday, I picked loads of wild berries!  Over 4 cups, which is enough to make a pie or a cobbler!  Did I make one?  No, I did no such thing!  I ate them.  And, do you know what?  For some of them I had to climb a ladder, as the vines had grown up into some very tall, tree-like bushes, and those berry clumps were just sitting there, hanging down, taunting me.  I couldn't reach them without the ladder, though.  AND, I had to put the ladder in these crazy ways, so I could stand with one foot on that, will bracing a knee on our compost bin, and balancing over hoards of (ultra) thorny berry bushes in order to just barely get those other ones that were way in the back!  It was hard work! 

Some of them still have red kernels and are a little tart, and some of them have still some spider web on them, and I think I sometimes eat a little spider webs.  Oh well :).  YAY for berries! 



Fresh wild berries... mmmmmm. I want some! Wild berries make me wonder if the stuff they sell in the supermarket are really berries... or something else in disguise.

I'm eating brownies. Warm, chocolatey, decadent... yummy. And so healthy  ::).

*Hands thinkgreen some berries* ...
Thanks :)

I know what you mean!  There's nothing like fresh from the garden (or from the wild) fruits and vegetables!  My sister and her husband own 85 acres of fruit farm, and it's *so* delicious to eat those fruits!  There are also little tiny fresh strawberries that grow wild here, though I've never really harvested them.  There's also delicious mushrooms that grow wild ... mmmmmm ... except, with those, it is nearly inescapable that you eat little worms in them, too  :-\.  
Better worms than weird chemicals and growth hormones... I just read a newspaper article about watermelons exploding like landmines due to growth hormones in a farm.  :-\


 

I just ate a not-so-frozen banana with chocolate on it.  so yummy.  I couldn't wait for the banana to freeze, but the chocolate was at least hardened!  *licks chops*
Yum! Bananas and chocolate are so good together! Actually I like chocolate with almost anything. I heard that if you put frozen bananas through a juicer, it tastes like ice cream. Haven't tried it, but if it's true... that'd be amazing! Ice cream without all the sugar and fat.

For me, much later tonight, I propose to let Thal down quite badly, I think, as he seems to think that I'm semi-vegan or something.

So what's on the menu? One lovely big organic Herefordshire sirloin steak, well hung (no, I'm not talking about Thal here!), beautifully matured and as tender as you please, pan-fried and rare (with the fat lightly charred), with some seasoned Rooster potatoes sautéed in a mix of unsalted organic Charentais butter and a light organic olive oil, the whole accompanied by a dressed (that's to say a mix of organic extra virgin Italian olive oil and Charentais walnut oil, a little lemon juice, honey, mustard, salt and pepper) salad of red oak leaf, spinach, frisée and beet leaves, organic watercress and fresh chives from outside the back door (if there are any left) - not forgetting a glass or three of a lovely 2000 St. Émilion that I picked up in St. Émilion itself a few months back. And, to follow, a tiny platter of cheeses - just two, a Devon Oke and an unpasteurised organic Dorset Blue Vinney with some petite mange blanc bread (sadly not from France where it would be much better than it ever is here) - then, to end, a mixed berry dish of Scottish raspberries, blackberries and local loganberries marinated in a very small amount of framboise with a little unpasteurised Cornish cream and just a sliver or two of Scottish shortbread.

You'll know if I've survived this if I post again.

OK, Mayla - you'll think this quite unhealthy, no doubt, but I'm past being fit enough for much more than long walks and writing the next piece!...

As a nightcap, I might just (or might just not) treat myself to a small glass of extra vieux Pineau des Charentes...

Best,

Alistair

Right now ? Grilled monkfish fillets (giant stargazer) accompanied by brown rice, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, garlic, bean sprouts, spring onions and various other things, mostly from the garden. Monkfish, my favourite fish, has a strong, characteristic flavour which is not to everybody's taste.

No, the opposite.  Actually, I think that most things that are made artfully, thoughtfully, and with fresh and fine ingredients are *not* unhealthy, but rather part of a balanced diet.  It seems like that's true no matter what it is, but maybe my imagination is tiny right now.  Sometimes I have phases of wanting less meat, but that doesn't mean I think of it in general as unhealthy.  But, I think I've said this a million times  :P.

In any event, I'd like to see a photo sometime of one of your meals!  It sounds too good to be true  ;D.  That's a whole class of home cooking that, if it's *ever* in my future, probably isn't going to be so for decades.  But, mmmmmm ... all the same :).  

*puts it on the list*

Where I'm at right now, I could probably handle about three to five bites of red meat ... but, that might change before I know it!
Believe me, I'm no chef! I can manage to keep going, but that's about it. It would never occur to me to photograph anything that I've prepared! There's a great deal of fine produce to be had around where I am at the moment, but there are hardly any decent restaurants, which seems to me to be a rather strange situation.

If sometimes you want to eat red or white meat and at others you want neither, just go for what you want. I go "veggie" on some days but not out of any principles - just because I don't particularly happen to fancy any meat or fish.

The composer Roger Sessions (read on - I'm not actually changing the subject!) had something of a reputaton as a rather dry and humourless academic (something that's certainly not borne out by such of his music that I know) and he apparently used to take his class out to dinner once a year; one of his students recalls being present on one of these occasions and the general feeling of dread when Sessions stood up to make a speech. "Garlic", he began, portentously, "is the beginning of civilisation". I imagine that the general atmosphere must have changed in an instant! He had a point, though.

Speaking of that stuff, part of due consideration of a healthy diet is how healthily the ingredients have been grown/reared and prepared. One aspect of this is the "food miles" to which so many foodstuffs are subjected today in order that those who can afford them can have almost anything from anywhere at any time of the year; the notion of eating "seasonally" has gone out of the window (although it seems now to be making a return in some places). Where I am, you can buy excellent lamb from the locality and from nearby east Wales - and yes, it sells well - yet you can also buy it from New Zealand; why would anyone want such a product after it's travelled some 18,000km when it can be had from just around the corner? Some products have to be sourced from other countries, of course; you can't grow bananas, decent olives, citrus fruit, coffee and tea, etc., in UK (yet!) and I admit to buying butter only from France even though there's plenty of it made locally here, but that's only because what they make here is decidedly inferior.
