One of my new year resolutions. Big expactations, big hopes. Bought a blender last week, found some recipes, made a green smoothie... Not too bad. It takes time to adapt to this IMO. It's hard to believe (at least for me) that people actually manage to replace all their daily meals with vegetable smoothies (so called celebrity diets - see Jenna Tatum)Since we come from so many different parts of the world, I thought it might be fun to compare (if not quite debate ) some of the foods we eat and enjoy that may be exotic/unknown to others.
For example, on this VERY hot day in Eastern Canada, I am sitting down to a green smoothie.
You heard that right. A green smoothie. Here's what's left of it (as you can see I drank most of it immediately) sitting in my Vitamix blender:

Ingredients: frozen mango, frozen pineapple, lemon juice, and fresh garden spinach.
No, this isn't a Canadian custom, though it does seem to be a North American trend in recent years. Does anyone else ever make these?
The nut and the muffin are a match in heaven made (just check the Bible). In fact, if the muff don't have no crunch to it, I find it a little bland.Callaina dixit:you can add stuff like nuts/raisins, or just make it plain)
I baked the carrot muffins last night, it came out quite tasteful (carrot aftertaste barely noticeable)
Is carrot cake not a thing in Belgium?
I don't know. I don't think I've ever come across it, at any rate, but I'm no cooking expert.
