Craving indian, sweet potatoes, and apple rasberry crumble...

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Instead of pizza, ice cream, peanut butter out of the jar...I am eating differently and the further I go, the weirder (grosser) my old favorite foods start to taste and even sound to me. I enjoy my individual dark chocolate sea salt caramels infinitley more than my old stand by's (Haagen Daz Caramel Truffle 1/2 pint, piles of corn chips, saltines and whatever on top ). Not depriving myself, at all. Last night was friday night so after an awesome indian curry/dal and s.p. fries, I had caramels listed above and lemon sorbet with a lime mineral water. I am enjoying the food so much! What a great surprise. Its so enjoyable when I am not weighing every bite and counting every calorie but actually eating better to feel better! Im even getting interested in Ethnic cooking...

    Indian food is not terribly hard to make, but it tends to be time consuming and can often be quite calorie-laden even if it is vegetarian. When I went to India for the first time, I realized that the food we order from restaurants in the States and UK is basically celebration food, and a typical Indian family would not sit down to the amount of meat that we consider normal. (or any meat at all frequently). There are tons of great vegetable dishes though, and eating your way though all of the styles of Indian cooking would take a lifetime!

    I'm starting to develop a sensitivity to salt - so Chocolate Caramel = good, but no salt for me. Still - your dal sounds tasty!

    Mmmm...dark chocolate sea salt caramels are definitely a favorite.

    It's nice to hear your healthy attitude toward food. It isn't the enemy; it should be enjoyed. Good for you.

    Now I'm wanting some good Indian food. I must learn to make my own.
