Food hasn't tasted quite as good these past months, which is a bummer since I live by the mantra, "I live to eat!" Truly, I love to eat. I love food. One of the reasons I love my gym is because I'm surrounded by my people (those that don't shy away from eating). But, what does a pregnant woman do when eating fluctuates, taste buds diminish and then Lent pops up?
Take comfort that this too shall pass and hope by the time Spring arrives, the taste bud glory will return. I'm beginning to see this, especially after slicing the fresh pineapple with my oldest hovering for a taste. The girls complain that I put the lime zest, but I assure them that honey drizzled over it will make it come alive. Our lunch consisted of Roasted Mustard Cauliflower, deviled eggs & this naturally sweet delight. We agreed the pineapple won the gold.
I implore you to serve this for dessert; rather, than going through all that extra effort of calorie forming pastry.
