“You can't possibly ask me to go without having some dinner.
I never go without my dinner.
No one ever does, except vegetarians and people like that.”

I steamed some fresh veggies for my dinner, and when I turned it out of the steamer, there was a face on my plate! Well, almost. It just needed some eyes. So I popped a couple of black olives on top of the carrots, parsnips, zucchini, red bell peppers and brown rice. I added a little drizzle of olive oil and some pink Himalayan mineral salt and, well, that's food with a face that I don't mind eating.
And if it is really true that you are what you eat (and I believe it is), then I guess that makes me a twirly, curly tangle of fresh-steamed tasty. Or something like that.
