If we were to believe every diet 'fad' that comes out we would become nervous wrecks, changing what we eat almost every week.
However, the latest dietary news does seem to make a lot of sense. This is the news that we should try to maintain more of a Mediterranean diet - which doctors and scientists say is better than statins for our heart health.
I must say that I read Cro Magnon's post every day (on my blog roll) and quite often he posts about what he is eating for his next meal. As he lives in France, where the climate is warmer, and as he has plenty of gardening space, he does grow much of his own food. And when he puts this food on his blog it always looks delicious. Simple, undoctored, just fresh food - and it always looks appetising.
I experimented with it today - and the result was surprisingly good. I put chicken thighs, herby sweet potato chips, red and white onion chunks, peppers, potatoes, courgettes and cherry tomatoes into a dish - drizzled them with olive oil and mixed it in well and then put the dish into the Aga for an hour. The result was very tasty - even the farmer commented on how good it was - and he is the most conventional eater in the country.
There is enough chicken left for tomorrow - I shall add more 'mediterranean vegetables' and perhaps a can of cannelini beans for a change. Can I keep it up rather than return to meat and two veg? We shall see.
