Diet for Writers

Join me at Lust Bites on Monday, October 6, for a fun look at the special needs of writers who try to lose weight. My sources are a tad unusual and my conclusions a wee bit weird but that's not surprising - I'm talking about writers!

yuck! what is this stuff? Mung beans comes to mind...

Here's a recipe from 'The CanLit Foodbook, which is featured in today's blog on Lust Bites The introduction is by the editor, Margaret Atwood.

Michael Ondaatje's Grapefruit

The grapefruit is appropriate for poets, who can meditate on its roundness and yellowness, but also for novelists, who can describe the way the juice squirts out into your eye. Hence it is the perfect fruit for all-rounder Ondaatje, who scorns the addition of sugar.

1 grapefruit, chilled

1. Cut a chilled grapefruit in half. This is more difficult than you think, as
grapefruits are not symmetrical.

2. Run a grapefruit knife around the inside of the skin.

3. Cut individual segments out from the centre.

4. Eat with spoon.

Do you diet? Are you there?
