I've just made myself a delicious omelette for breakfast.
I went all out and added a few shavings of parmesan.
Yes, I know...how decadent!
Parmesan is one of my favourite foods. I'm a cheese fiend and I often go to the fridge for a few shavings of parmesan as a snack.
This morning as I was shaving some delicious slivers from my block of fresh parmesan, I had a terrifying flashback...
Why and who ever thought this was a good idea???
This is not parmesan!
This is a travesty.
This was all I knew of as parmesan as a young adult.
I couldn't work out why, for the life of me, anyone would want to eat something that smelt like spew!
Anyhow, I've seen the light, I know what real parmesan is now.
And I am happy.
And that got me to thinking...of all the other 'non-real' foods that were passed off as 'the real thing' to me as a child...like...
This is not pizza!
This is not spaghetti!
I've been watching Jamie Oliver's 'Food Revolution' lately and he has got it right people.
Get rid of foods from cans, boxes and plastic packaging.
