spring clean

Fresh peppermint from the garden, straight to the pot for tea.

Apples, about 5 or 6, thinly sliced and munched through the day.

A few pots of ginger, cinnamon and lemon tea.


This is not the most exciting tale to tell on a food blog but this is all I consumed yesterday. The previous weeks have been littered with celebrations ā€“ bottles of sparkling and cool sauv blancs on sunny days, seafood and salads, the morning hit of espresso to fuel the writing.

All this is gone for a short hiatus. So too is reading other peoples accounts of food or watching gastroporn on TV.

I documented my spring clean detox last September, so scroll back to the beginning of the month to catch up on the highlights. So as not to repeat myself, Iā€™m taking this week off ā€“ til normal eating resumes!

My parting thoughts are ā€“ remember it is just food, nothing more, nothing less. It is always good to take a break from our obsessions.

Exciting it may not be, but your parting thoughts are spot on.

Enjoy it - perfect time of the year.

I am thinking you'll feel very healthy and virtuous when the week is over.

It seems many people are taking temporary a break from their food obsession, myself included. It's not a deliberate break, I just find myself outside enjoying the novelty of sunshine rather than in the kitchen. Soon enough I'll be drawn back like a magnet just to cook something.
