Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives.

I LOVE that show.  I could plan a Road Trip based on all the Restaurants with Home Cooking that I would looooooooooooove to visit.  Maybe one day (when this cleanse is over) I will do just that.  Plan one of my holidays around food.  People do B&B for Wine Tours, so I don’t think this is too far off the beaten path.

I am inspired by Food as Art. A great meal should not only taste great, but have lovely presentation as well.  You might be wondering why I didn’t become a Chef in this lifetime?  Truly I love food too much if that makes any sense. I knew that if I chose it as a career that I wouldn’t have the same passion for it that I do as a hobbyist.  It would feel too much like work instead of being fun and that would be a tragedy.

If you want to tease yourself with all the things you can’t have right now just watch a cooking show.  (I must be a masochist.)

Parsnip Fennel Soup, for a Candida Cleanse,an Experiment using Food as   Medicine,Chronicled by Nicole Chayka, image by Monica H

Salad, with Parsnip and Fennel Soup poured over steamed Gai Lan and Asparagus

*very yum however the carnivore in me had digested the entire meal and was hungry again inside of 2 hours.  Same as Chinese food.  Very tasty but doesn’t stick to my bones for very long.

If you are an ‘O’ blood type, then add meat to a Vegetarian dish or you’ll be pounding something back right before bed…a real digestive no no. In my case it was the leftover salad so at least I had something in the fridge good to go on the spot.

This is a scenario you don’t want to find yourself in.  Staring blankly into the fridge at 10pm wondering what the hell you can eat.

Next Candida Journal Post…
