Did I really need to listen to the radio a few minutes ago? One thing for sure – it’s off now – and my Christmas is ruined!!!
Some well-meaning nutritionist asked this question from a caller:
“Do two tablespoons of cream have:
a. 60 calories and 6 grams of fat, or
b. 120 calories and 12 grams of fat?”
The caller replied, “B”.
“Correct,” said the nutritionist with a smile in her voice.
And there I was, planning on making meringues for the Christmas feast, perfect for our gluten-free guest but not so good for ‘he who’s on a diet.’ The dilemna as I see it is, do I tell him how dangerous it is to indulge in the cream-filled meringues or do I keep this dreadful knowledge to myself?
The caller informed our nutritionist that she is going to serve her Christmas pavlova with yoghurt…all in the interests of good health. My feeling – go without rather than bastardise the humble Pav. It should not be compromised.
And nor should meringues – I’ll keep my mouth shut on both counts.
