I LOVE bread.
Seriously, my favorite memory of my first cruise is of the awesome rolls I got to eat at every meal.
But we all know how it's not the most nutritional food item (bummer!) and then to be addicted to it...yikes!
So I've slowly weaned myself off of it. My body feels better without it and I totally notice a difference when I have some (which is rare). But I can't deny that I STILL LOVE it!
The passion that my taste buds have and the chemical response...oh, the ecstasy!
Well, I think I realized a healthy alternative.
When I dip these little babies in some soy sauce and shove it in my mouth....I'm instantly happy. No kidding.
I had to stop eating to take this pic. I could hardly stand the few seconds it took.
I just made, and have now devoured, pretty much all of this yumminess.
These have cucumber & yellow pepper. Some of them I managed to squeeze in some cream cheese. I can't help that whenever I make these, I gobble them up! You may even see me pushing the cart at the grocery store while chomping on a tray of the store made ones...but my homemade ones are so fresh and much better. If you like these but don't know how to make them, just ask. I'll be glad to let you learn from my mistakes. I'm not an expert (yet!). But I did buy a bamboo mat that is supposed to make it easier to roll them up nice and tight, I have chopsticks and a few Asian vinegars and cooking wines. And we do have an Asian market close by.
It's about making healthy choices. We only have one body. It's pretty amazing and pretty darn special. I hope you are taking care of yours.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the joy!
