As the summer temperatures and humidity skyrocket on the outskirts, my palate takes a nose-dive with my food choices. I’m less likely to cook heavy meals. I crave the light and easy.
Moreover, I tend to increase the amount of fruits in my daily dietary plan. Thanks to my neighborhood farmer’s market, I’m able to access relatively inexpensive fruits that are locally grown.
These wholesome foods help to replenish what I lost via perspiration and otherwise during the sizzling days. Fruits are loaded with nutrients like fibers, vitamins, potassium and others which are beneficial to the body.
You could say, these fruits and I have a great kinship.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
