Hi folks on this Marvelous Monday! Yeah, okay, Monday's may not be so marvelous... but getting through them is, so you might as well make Monday as great as possible right?
Any-who, this post isn't about Monday at it's hatred. Nope, it's about one of the relatively new finds of mine in the food department of my life that I expressed much joy about here. Wow, more than 2 months ago- did not think it had been that long!!
Yep, the good ol' cherry!
Now, when I think of cherries, I immediately go to Summer time, usually Christmas time and also ridiculously expensive that you have to beg and lead your mother with the biggest Bambi eyes in order to get half a kilo to bring home. And Grandma always had ridiculous amounts of em' because she loved you so gosh darn much and didn't seem to register the ridiculous prices. Lot's of cherry-induced stomach aches thanks to Grandma.
So, it's safe to say that for my whole life cherries only entered my diet for around 2 weeks every year. Utterly soul-destroying, I know. What's worse? It took my whole life (up until this year) for me to realise you can buy fresh, frozen cherries that are exactly the same!! And they're PITTED!
Now that I know I can get a big bag of frozen cherries for around a tenth of the price, all year round? Well, cherries are making an appearance in all sorts of things!
The next day I whipped up some vanilla protein granola:
What about you?
Are you a cherry fan? I know quite a few people who can't stand the taste!
Have you ever tried frozen cherries in your cooking/ smoothies?
Favourite frozen fruit you couldn't live without? Of course mine would be banana, but mango and berries and now cherries, are pretty close too!
I hope you all have a great day, make the most of it and eat something delicious! Bye for now friends!! :D
