What’s for dinner – Red pill or Blue Pill

If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

Today’s prompt links up nicely with another (overdue – sorry Lauren!) post that I will have up later today.  You are what you eat, literally.  Stay tuned for the facts, you will be amazed!

I have always had a love / hate relationship with food.   How do I put this?  I love good food, but I don’t miss it.  I can quite literally go for days without eating.  I don’t get hungry very often and have to remind myself to eat.  To me it is quite a waste of time.  Honestly, you spend hours shopping, peeling, chopping, steaming, broiling, frying – not to mention the dishes! – just so it can get chomped down and criticized!  What’s up with that?!

Adding more fuel to my “distaste” for food are the horrific facts about our food sources, which have been surfacing more and more over the last couple of months  It’s quite literally enough to make you sick, and going to the supermarket has become a slight obsession for me.  Since Saturday, I have been strictly watching and jotting down what I’ve been eating.  It sounds like a schlep, but with my food relationship, it has been more fun than choosing and preparing the food.  If anyone needs a food journal to be kept, I’m the girl for the job!

The possibility of swallowing a pill (PRESERVATIVE, MSG, GMO ie poison FREE) is one that really appeals to me and I would be the first to opt-in.

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!

  1. an appetite for food equals an appetite for life. Cooking is creative and eating is a most accessible pleasure.Washing dishes is strictly speaking playing with water (I shall do well to remember that!) and in winter it warms you up nicely. Eating makes me happy – probably because I make a point of making food that tastes good. I feel just SO good at this moment because I had the tastiest lentil/tomatoe/garlic soup. Cook soaked brown lentils until soft, add salt and cook some more while cooking some chopped garlic and lots of finely chopped tomatoe in a little oil to make a paste that is then added to the lentils. Mash everything for a smooth consistency. I heat up some mixed herbs, powdered chilli and black mustard seeds with the chopped garlic before adding the tomatoe (which I salt beforehand; also add a bit of lemon juice and sugar) to the oil. Turn down the heat and cook slowly to a paste. Don’t use onions with this! Add a bit of water if you are worried that the tomotoe will burn.

    1. WOW! That does sound yummy! Thanks for sharing I will definitely be trying it soon. I guess once I enjoy cooking, I can also enjoy the meal hey?
