I didn't fancy eggs for breakfast this morning, unusual for me but hey everyone needs a change every now and then. I had avocados in the fridge that needed using up and I remembered the very start of Nigella's new series when she had avocados and radish on toast, and yes I had radishes in there too.
I didn't faff about with the exact recipe from the book, quick pickling the radishes and added bits and bobs to the avocado, I just kept it simple, and luckily only topped half of a piece of toast.
Of course it looked nothing like the picture in the book, I didn't have fancy pants toast either, just a cheap seeded loaf from Tesco.
I peeled the radishes a bit they had been in the fridge for a couple of days and were feeling sorry for themselves. It looked fine and the first bite was pretty yummy, then as I ate more and more I started to feel decidedly bad.
The last couple of times I have had a Nutriblast with avocado in it I have felt yucky, well yucky the first time and decidedly and very up-chuckingly yucky the second time, so much so that I was on the verge of putting the Nutriblast in the cupboard to ride out the Winter thinking it was the change of temperature making them not suit me anymore. I now think I can be pretty confident that it is the avocado that is not suiting me. I am sat here with all the symptoms of my foray into goose egg eating which left me in no doubt whatsoever that I am allergic to goose eggs, so now it would seem that I am also allergic to avocados.
As allergies are much worse than intolerances it pays to really listen to your body when the messages come over so loud and clear, and I am doing. After trying to bring myself to like them after years of not liking them it would seem that my not liking them was instinctive in a way, so I have sat up and took notice. I took the rest of the damn green things out of the fridge chopped them up (feeling very nauseous as I did so) and threw them unceremoniously to the chickens, who thought all their Christmasses had come at once and got stuck in with great gusto.
So I might have channelled my inner Nigella, but with decidedly yucky consequences.
I hope the rest of the recipes in this book are better for me or it will be following this one .....
Reverse Advent - Day 3
A book that came highly recommended, but now I've read it I don't feel a need to keep it so it's off. (And that's why they invented libraries!!) Hopefully someone else will benefit.
