Today I ate some veg again. It’s been a while. I have had an unhealthy week or so. I’ve completely lost any desire to cook, so instead I’ve kinda just eaten. I have lived off bagels, cupcakes, and the four Roman pasta dishes.
And, it seems, that ancient Romans were not fond of vegetables in their pasta. There are no peppers in cacio e pep. No onions in Aglio e Olio. No carrot in carbonara. it’s mostly just cheese, oil, and butter.
And so I have been unhealthy. I’ve not drunk enough water, or left the flat enough.
Today that changed. A bit. I went for a dog walk at the racecourse, drank water (with squash in it), and cooked a steak dinner. With vegetables.
Look how tiny the steak looks next to all those vegetables. Go me.
Until tomorrow, hmmmmmmm steak.
