Of course, you should not eat too much of what you like. That is true of anything, though. You should also not eat too much of what you dislike, it is just easier. Seriously, you should enjoy a varied diet. Eating (or drinking) too much of any one thing, especially something you enjoy on a daily basis, can get your body in trouble.
Epicurus advocated a simple diet designed for health, rather than an extravagant one designed for pleasure. I think it is possible to have both. Here is a recipe for a little desert or snack that is easy to make, delicious, and contains only ingredients that are good for you. The portion below should serve 3-4 people.
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup blackberries
- a lemon or a lime
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup raisins (golden if you like them)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
If you are used to using lemon or lime with dairy, be careful with the citrus here, though. The dairy takes the bitterness out of the citrus and leaves the sweet fruit-taste for you to enjoy. Coconut milk is not dairy, so does not have quite the same effect.
Another of my favorite things is yoghurt mixed with some fresh fruit and lots of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Here I wanted to go for a vegan dish, but you could use yoghurt instead of coconut milk.
