Okay, so my yummy dinner is not in the future. It’s in the past. I made seared brussels sprouts with bacon and caramelized onions. My protein was two slices of baked chicken and two slices of grilled turkey burger. I topped the turkey and chicken with a chunky purée of avocado, fresh basil and basalmic vinegar. I topped the purée with a chiffonade of red cabbage and carrot dressed with olive oil and vinegar. VERY tasty!
So where does the future come in? Well, after dinner (I actually made this for me and my friend Selina) I went to see the new Star Trek move, Star Trek: Into Darkness. The movie was great. Star Trek fan or not, J.J. Abrams made a great film. Good story and actions packed. However I did happen to notice one thing that was odd…there are fat people in the future. What?! This makes no sense. So, three hundred years from now we can travel the stars, beam ourselves from one location to the next, and conjure up a meal at our whim by just asking a computer to do so…but we haven’t cured obesity?! It just goes to show you that there will never be a quick and easy way to get the pounds off other than diet and exercise. I was hoping that in the future we could just beam the fat out of our bodies…lol.
