Miracle Berry – rewire your sour taste buds

Standard

Miracle fruit is a plant that has a berry which when eaten causes sour foods to taste sweet, it’s the strangest sensation, basically you can put some lemon in your mouth and instead of tasting really sour it is one of the sweetest tastes you will have experienced.

You can buy these taste bud altering berries in tablet format. You basically just suck on one of the tablets for a few minutes until it completely dissolves, get an array of different food and try each one to see how the taste has changed.

Mark is from England and loves his meat and potato, especially potato I may add. It would be baked potato, mash potato, fries, etc. Shepherd’s pie is a dish that Mark will eat frequently growing up and so he is always thinking about it whenever we go out to restaurants to eat. While we were doing the 30 day challenge, we completely avoid potato because it generally have the ability to cause us to be lethargic after eating it. Currently Mark had reintroduced this slowly back into his diet, but only after he lifts in order to provide energy needed after lifting.

As a way to compensate Mark’s desire for his growing up meals, we searched multiple recipes and finally perfected this dish that still hits the taste bud while giving him a strong link back to his childhood. Note, the top of this dish is literally just a simple garlic cauliflower mash.

This is one of my favorite dinner dish. It is a recipe fit for the king and is an excellent pick me up dish on a cold day in Seattle. I have no problem with garlic other than being self conscious about it, so make sure everyone in the family have a big bowl to spread the love!

Friday is movie night in our house. Our routine is generally eating leftovers and watching a movie on Friday. We do our groceries on Saturday and deplete our munchies from Monday through Thursday. So when Friday comes into the picture, we feel that we need to stop into the supermarket for a run. This is especially since Mark needs desserts.

Today (a Friday) is no different …
