After the chocolate overdose of the last post I thought I would share what we eat at mealtimes, regardless of current dietary disorders.
We never have dinner without a plate of chopped fruit and vegetables in the middle of the table. We have eaten this way for nearly thirty years. Whether it’s a curry, or pasta, or Mexican, or meat, it’s there. Of course it changes with the seasons.
I always have a minimum of one type of fruit. It seems to be only tradition that say we can’t have a plate of apples, or sliced oranges or whatever, as well as salad and the main course. This works especially well with young children as it’s colourful and there is always something to pick at. Kids like picking!
Today’s method is very easy. Get a pile of vegetables and a couple of fruits. Chop up to look attractive. Put on plate. Cook whatever you had in mind. Eat.
Nothing in your mind to cook? Then grab some bread and eat the fruit and veggies then. It’s good for you.
I salt the veggie plate, yes apples, too (they are so good with salt on) and squeeze lemon juice over the whole lot. That’s it. If I am not serving a green salad as well, then I might drizzle olive oil over them too. Sometimes vinegar. I mean, it’s not rocket science. Do whatever blows your skirt.
Now because most people like to have pictures, I took some of our family meal yesterday. Bear in mind that I was feeding two body builders as well, and they loved it, so you dear readers might love it too.
Have a nice Sunday.
