|Some of your five a day|
It involves very little carbs, lots of protein and lots of fresh fruit and veg. The only veg the husband eats is bell peppers when we have fajitas (chopped toms, onions and garlic made into sauce doesn't count in my book). He keeps saying 'it's only eight weeks'. I'm afraid we won't get past day two. Every so often, he'll inform me I don't feed him enough vegetables. I stock up on broccoli, asparagus, peas etc and by the end of the week, I'm making soup for me with it and he's back to no veg at all.
Miss A is just like him in that respect; but when it comes to fruit, she's like a little fruit bat. I've never seen a child willingly eat so much fruit as she does - all varieties (except Dragon Fruit). The husband, on the other hand, only eats bananas. And apple turnovers. Only if they're accompanied by ice cream.
So I figured that this would be a good, simple, sharing family recipe for holiday. Chop up loads of fresh fruit. Stick it on skewers. Drizzle with maple syrup and melted chocolate. Eat. Job done. Why did I not think of this before?
