I did a quick veg shop after work today and as I unpacked everything I noticed how quickly the kitchen bench was filling with green! Basil would have to be by far my favourite green...the scent is just divine.
I've always cooked with fresh vegetables, it's the way I've been brought up. Plus, there's something wholesome & therapeutic in chopping raw veggies, as oppose to opening up a freezer bag. I'm not saying frozen veggies are no good, I'm just not use to that way of living. Our biggest delight has always eaten her veggies raw - carrots, beans, peas (frozen! our only type) she really likes the crunch factor.
Anyway, after all this goodness above and eating a brilliant seafood salad for dinner, I succumbed to a raspberry shortcake biscuit. It's been 11 days and my will power has been extraordinary otherwise. I must say though, I am eating more fat but I'm not feeling fat(yet), so that's got to be a good thing.
