Nuts are wonderful. Especially certain types, in certain ways.
Recently (well, I say recently but you’ll be reading this in several months time, so it isn’t recent. It is for me – I’m writing this on Sunday 27th February 2011 at 13:25, months ago for you) there was a post on the wonderful blog The Change Revolution about pistachios. With a mouth-watering picture, as well. You know, I have a sudden urge to eat pistachios…
I’m back. I couldn’t find any. Ah, well.
On the post is a wonderful list of things to do with them, including using them with pancakes and salads (click “read more” below for the full list). Also there is a list of ‘fun facts’, like that they are high in fibre.
Basically, pistachios are tasty and good for you. I say that and you could eat salted ones. NOT healthy. It is amazing how tasty and healthy food can be unhealthy very soon….
Anyway, read the post below, and let me know what you think!

Who wants a delicious cake recipe that actually uses an entire orange (yes, that includes the peel) and is chocolate? Well, read on!
Today I found this wonderful recipe on FoodPress, and I realised I just had to share it. I mean, how can you not share a delicious recipe?
Enjoy the cake!
Today you are in for a treat – banana pancakes. The bad news – you have to make them yourself – this blog won’t make them for you. Good news – below this blog post there is a link to a post which has the recipe on. For those of you who are still reading and haven’t yet scrolled to the bottom of the page in desperation to eat pancakes, I am now doing a debate-type thing on pancakes and sweet food.
Why exactly do people generally prefer food that is bad for you than food that is good for you? It just doesn’t make sense, really. I mean, why weren’t we made to like Brussel sprout soup (that sounds quite nice actually) as much as banana pancakes? Is the answer to the question “we like them because they are bad for us”. Is the reason we like them the simple fact that they are bad for us? I don’t think so. It just happens to be that sweet food isn’t as healthy as the not-quite-as-sweet food.
What do you think on this topic?

I’m in a kind of science-y mood today, so here are the seven food groups:
And I think that is it for today. I just wanted to put you in a science-y mood today. Oh, and what are your best/worst memories of school? If you are still at school, what are your best/worst memories so far? Let me know in the comments!
If you could have anything to eat right now, what would it be? These Daily Post ideas get stranger and stranger.
Well, at the time of writing (Wednesday 23rd February 2011 at 14:14) I’m not actually that hungry. A little while ago I watched Outcasts episode 5, and with that I had some dried strawberries covered with white chocolate. So I’m not really hungry…
Let’s say I was. I would probably eat one of my favourite ever sandwiches. They consist of:
- Melted cheese
I know I said I wasn’t hungry, but now I am.
Now for the bonuses. Assume price is no object. Fine. If you could eat this food with anyone alive or who has ever lived, who would it be? Ooh, probably Matt Smith. He could tell me everything about the next series of Doctor Who. He wouldn’t want to, but I’d bribe him with chocolate. And as for the third bonus, look below:
Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor
Below you can watch Matt Smith (as the Doctor) get place names a little wrong:
What is your answer to the big question?
