Handwritten notes – clearly of importance because they hang around for years – yet they exist on scraps of paper, with no proper home.
OK, time to give two of them the attention they deserve.
George Cooper (who gave me the recipe on the above note) has since published a book on nutrition with recipes. Be Your Own Nutritionist marries traditional (mid-Victorian healthy diet) and modern thinking. As an acupuncturist, he also brings ancient eastern wisdom. Practical information on nutrition at George Cooper’s website.
“Dr George dressing for grated carrots” (says the note)
3 tablespoon coconut milk
1.5 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon honey
Pour dressing over grated carrots. Above amounts worked for three big carrots to serve 2-3. I grated ginger with the carrots too. (Carrots were organic, from local organic farm shop, Radford Mill Farm).
Delicious – now I see why I have hung onto that note for eight years. The cumin adds a special taste.
My note says:
one of the lowest literacy
in developed nations
and highest obesity in Europe.
Is there a connection between the two?
