I know. I know. It is Saturday and not Friday and it is a twitter thing. If you look down the left side column of my blog you will see the newly added Blogs I Follow section. I plan on populating it with some of the blogs I follow. Instead of just dumping a bunch of them on there at once, I decided to add them one at a time and do a little post about each.
First up is Robin Ellis of robin-ellis.net. Robin Ellis is an English actor who now lives in the country in France. I have only ever seen him in an episode of Fawlty Towers. Robin has been diagnosed with diabetes. It runs in his family. A large number of his posts are recipes fit for a diabetic. He calls his method of cooking a “Mediterranean style of cooking”.
My style of cooking in usually Mediterranean—based on olive oil, tomatoes and garlic. This cuisine–with a little tweaking–suits the slightly different way of eating that I adopted once the diabetes showed up.
The flavor in these dishes and comes from spices and not from salt and fat. This makes for delicious and healthy meals. I have made several of the recipes he has featured.
Two of my favorites:
So if you are ready for some really delicious healthy meals he is your man. He also has a cook book. You can find the details on his blog.
- They thought they got chickens, nope rooster.
- An adorable kitten wanders into their life and adopts them
So I can highly recommend giving Robin’s blog a follow. You are guaranteed (note this guarantee will not be honored anywhere in the known universe) a tasty recipe or a fun story. Also, you might learn some info about diabetes.
Small world, Robin Ellis has a tie with A Taste of Garlic, one of my favorite blogs before while still in France, but I had never seen his site. Thanks for the link, and the "surprise it's a rooster not a hen" laugh.
I found Robin Ellis' blog through the interview he did on A Taste of Garlic. I understand why, but I am sad that Keith stopped doing his blog.
