So my day starts off with me consuming 74 grams of sugar all at once within two small bags of Boston Baked Beans. Who knew? I read the ingredients on the bag AFTER I ate the first bag and ONLY out of sheer boredom.
But I clearly didn’t care, as I consumed the second bag right after I read this. But that’s neither here nor there. Only informational for you readers as I’m not sure how this post will end up sounding with that much sugar in me.
Well, I love cooking with basil, garlic, and olive oil—and I’ve been on a fresh basil kick lately. I bought a bag at the grocery store and 3 different bunches at the city farmer’s market. It smells divine and there’s always something you can throw a basil leaf into.
I also love when the garlic farmer comes to market with his super large humongous garlic bulbs. I love fresh garlic from the market more so than the grocery store. I buy lots of it and put it into everything. As great as garlic tastes in cooking, I hate the after effects it leaves on yourself for the next 3 days. It can be offensive to say the least.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, discover different olive oils, fresh garlic, and basil (preferably at your farmers’ market) and find ways to incorporate these into your cooking.
Take-Away Life Lesson: It’s probably not a great idea to consume 74 grams of sugar within 5 minutes time. It gives you sugarhead.
