As a disease that has affected both my grandmothers (thankfully both in later life) this research is something that I am particularly interested in. While the research is in its early phases, by eating more foods rich in B vitamins – what is the worst that could happen? It may have no affect on memory, but it’s still good for you!
I think this is the longest between posts in the history of this blog. There are a couple of reasons for that, sunshine during the weekends have removed the part of the week when I am most likely to blog. During the week my excuses have been less clear. I have been very very tired since all the heat, sunshine and summeriness began. Falling asleep on the sofa when I would normally be reading other blogs looking for inspiration, going to bed early instead of writing my own. Forgetting to take pictures even when I have been making stuff worth blogging about.
So for the past few days I have been trying my hardest to get out of this slump, with highly healthy fruit smoothies. Hoping that a boost in vitamins will help sort me out. I can’t say that it has really worked yet – last night a single glass of wine had me comatosed on the sofa for the rest of the evening.
Getting a fairly regular supply of fresh beetroot is one of the best things about my organic vegetable delivery. Beets are wonderfully versatile, I’ve used them in salads, in muffins and in soups – but making a curry from them is the ultimate for me.
When people normally talk about comfort food, they usually talk about typically national dishes, macaroni and cheese, bangers and mash etc. But when things aren’t quite working out for me it’s not the british or scottish dishes that I usually turn to – it’s the Indian.
