Mega mango

I know it’s summer because I get to eat steaks of mango! Mango is one of my four favourite foods.

Here is a mega mango that my mum and dad gave us. I tried to take a photo to give you a sense of scale but the best I could do was to put the mango next to a glass pig, which was a gift from Ian and Caroline’s wedding last year.

      The other three are chocolate, prawn and chicken.

      I gave up chocolate in March last year but it’s still one of my favourite foods. Since 7 March, the only times I am allowed to eat chocolate are if someone makes a chocolate treat especially for me or if it’s part of a degaustation (or wedding) menu.

      The first two weeks of the chocolate ban were hard. I thought about chocolate a lot, which proved to me I was unhealthily addicted to it. It’s a lot easier now. Easier to go cold turkey then to have a little bit. There was a while a few years ago when I allowed myself to eat chocolate that was at least 70% cocoa. It meant I ate a lot of dark chocolate.

      Now I don’t think about it as much. I have lapsed a few times since March 2011 and when I do, it takes a few days for me to regain my equanimity.

      Luckily, prawn, mango and chicken don’t cause me the same problems.
