I have decided to fast for the next 10 Wednesdays! (Actually I was signed up for it by V but that is a story for another day.)
Merriam-Webster says "to fast" is "to abstain from food" or "to eat sparingly or abstain from some foods". The latter definition is the one that applies to my fasting; I do indulge in fruits, nuts, yogurt, and milk (especially in the form of hot chocolate!). And I certainly do not sacrifice my morning cup of joe!
Dinner was a yummy fruit salad. The secret ingredient, as V would has pointed out, is the ginger.
Here's the recipe:
1 apple peeled, cored and cubed
1 pear peeled, cored and cubed
1 avocado, cubed
Ginger 1 inch piece, peeled
Black pepper to taste
Red chili powder to taste
Salt to taste
Arrange the fruit on a salad plate. Drizzle with lemon juice. Grate the ginger on top. Season with pepper, red chili powder and salt.
More of a feast than a fast, wouldn't you say?!
