|COULD WE REALLY HAVE A WEEKLY DIET BASED ON FOOD GROUPS?|
The Zits comic strip always makes me laugh and after reading this one from March 5, 2012, I thought about what it would be like if we actually followed such a diet: vegan one week, carnivore the next and ... well, not candy but perhaps, a juice diet for the week after.
Eating only vegetables wouldn't be a problem, I think, but being a carnivore might be. Unlike Pierce's colon, I don't think mine would be very strong if only meat went through it for a week. I'd probably be lying down all day like a python after swallowing its prey.
As I write this, on the stove is a big pot of simmering vegetable stock which I shall be using for various dishes. I'm already planning some wantan soup (Hong Kong), and rice and beans (Mexico), and who knows what else I'll take a fancy to.
