Coconut oil, because food is always the point.
I think it was Barbara Kingsolver that wrote in her book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, that when it comes to eating in the US, food is not really the point.
We want it fast, in our car, in our purse, in a tube, and for $.99. The requirement that what we eat be actual food falls low on the list.
So, when I find something that is delicious and has enough nutrition to be really classified as food I get excited. Maybe unnecessarily so, but coconut oil is supposed to make buttery popcorn, nutty shrimp, exquisite vegetable sauté, and melt in your mouth toast. Without some of the regrets of butter, and no bovine growth hormone. How did that get in my butter?
I can’t vouch for the popcorn, shrimp, veggie sauté, but as for the toast, it is marvelous. I make old fashioned toast in the broiler, and the solid goodness of coconut oil melts, well, like butter.
The coconut sweetness is very light, but the buttery goodness hits the mark. Two thumbs up, but until there is salted coconut oil, I will be adding a pinch of salt to my toast. Happy eating.
Calories in a gin martini.
Yes, you need to know how many calories are in this delicious drink, because the truth will set you free.
Calories in a Bombay Gin martini, with two premium olives, total 232, by my count.
That means that a three martini lunch totals at 696 calories. This power lunch is a great way to carbo load and prepare for a productive afternoon.
