A Food that begins with a “V”

October 21, 2010

Initially it was my intention to start a health blog:  “Deliciously Healthy”.

Even to say that in the past tense is weird and a possible proof of reincarnation (within the same life.  I’ve done that once.  Isn’t life strange  and marvelous?).

Well, for various real reasons and also not, relatively, necessarily very reasonable and relevant reasons, I have been sustaining on a diet of toast through the Winter (… and beer :-P).

The other evening, my poi student, Karen, whom I converted to eating raw foods, asked “but why?’, etc.

So for supper, I prepared, instead of the as-ubiquitous-as-hadedas toast which Jean had already toasted:   vegetables, chopped – yes, actually there were some vegetables in the fridge (to be honest I don’t know where they came from) –  cauliflower, green beans, carrots, radish, green pepper, grated ginger, coriander seeds, fennel seeds  & curry powder – sauted/steamed, quick.

Then didn’t feel much like eating.  It is perversely strange.  If you knew me better you would know how strange ( …um, just take a look at my blogroll).

And while I can’t say I exactly enjoyed the meal-moment (as I have done so fervently and often in the past), mostly because my mouth was burning too much – why would I have put chilli sauce on my curry?  I’m puzzled – it is good to know that I at least fed myself food which could transorm into energy.  And the beans squeaked!  😀

Woohoo!  Haha.

… So, this “Food that begins with a “V”.

My friend Angie (who I told you left me/East London for Johannesburg) and I chat every weekday via gtalk.
