|Swedish Beetroot Herring Salad|
Breakfast: Oat sourdough toast
Dinner: Pasta and yellow peas in tomato sauce
Baking/sweets: Chocolate ANZAC / Coconut Oat Oreo Cookies
I tried beetroot herring salad sometime ago, it was one of those prepared salads sold at the supermarket. I was blown away, I wondered how something so simple could be so delicious. The salad is a very happy marriage between sweet beet, salty herring and creamy dressing, a blissful marriage. Of course this works well in the salad world, it cannot work so well in our world. Polygamy is frowned upon in many cultures and a criminal offence in many countries!
Back to the salad, the one from the supermarket was dressed in mayonnaise and créme fraiche. These were not present in my refrigerator, I used thick cultured milk instead and it worked great. The supermarket salad was well dressed, slightly overdressed I would say, mine on the other hand was scantily clad. Has your mind gone astray? Look at the time, we are talking about food. Back to the salad, again, to finish off, a few drops of hot sauce helped liven up the party. Sweet, salty, creamy, hot, delicious and nutritious, and very easy to prepare. The recipe is available here.

Interesting research, and perhaps not the most welcome news. Thin people have greater will power to resist tempting, high-calorie foods than obese people.
Brain scans of thin people who looked at pictures of high-calorie foods showed increased activity in a region of the brain used for impulse control, but obese people showed little activity in this region, the researchers found. "I think there essentially may be biological reasons why people can't necessarily control their desire for food," said Robert Sherwin of Yale University School of Medicine in Connecticut, who worked on the study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
I am guessing that if a thin person becomes obese or vice versa the persons will power should not be affected. So if an obese person works hard to reduce weight the person will need to continuously work hard to fight will power. Sounds like a continuous battle.
