We all love to hear good news, and I have some.
My friend Natasha came to town from Vancouver yesterday and I invited her over for supper. I picked her up from where she was staying and brought her back to the house to have supper with Lane, Noriko, Irene and me. I made a stewed chicken with tonnes of veggies, sautéed green beans with mushrooms and an Asian style slaw. For an appetizer, Noriko made a simple Miso soup and a tofu dish that was served with Wasabi and kelp! It was all sooo delicious!
We had such a good time reminiscing and talking after supper that Natasha accepted our invitation to spend the night and decided to go back to her host family's house to pick up a few overnight things to stay with us. Before we left, she stopped me in the kitchen and said, "You think that we could stop by McDonald's so I can pick up a sundae? I feel like something sweet."
Natasha asked, "Will you share a McFlurry with me?"
"Will you have some bites out of a sundae?"
"So how do you do that berry thing?"
"Well you can eat the berries frozen or warm them up. I stir them into plain yogurt that I sweeten with Stevia."
"Ok. Let's do that. Thank you for talking me out of eating junk."
"REALLY? You are very welcome!"
I helped a person make a wholesome, nutritious and healthy choice. All it took was honesty. I believe that what I eat is delicious and I believe in the truth. Don't sugar coat it, really. Don't.
Here is a photo of Natasha enjoying her yogie and berries! Ps, She doesn't know I took a picture of her.
Natasha is enjoying a healthy dessert!
