I'm often asked what the best diet is...
“The Japanese eat low fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
However, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like....It’s speaking English that kills you.”
And the humorous conclusion pretty much sums it up.
Because there's no BEST diet.
Which is why I advocate building a diet that works for you and fits your lifestyle.
And if this involves eating out at Nando's, tapas, and an Italian all in one week because you're on-the-go a lot
^^^ I can explain...belated fathers day meal out, leaving meal for a friend, and being on a course in Birmingham...
Then so be it.
You CAN make it work.
By understanding how different quantities and types of food impact your waist line, energy, mood and more...
And that eating 'organic' or 'all-natural' isn't a must
You eat within your means and to your preferences!
So you can make better-informed choices that fit your lifestyle and stop you feeling guilty, quitting your diet and blaming willpower.
Which brings me on to...
Pino's <<< the Italian Restaurant I went to on Sunday
Ever been there?
It's just off of the High Street in Marlborough.
Greeted by the smell of a rich 'garlicky' tomato sauce...
My stomach was growling
And I was salivating like Pavlov's dog after the sound of a bell...
We sat by the entrance on arrival with some drinks.
The staff made us aware of the specials
* Salmon <<< or should I say 'Salmone" (in an Italian accent)
* Game Pate (which I will come on to)
And it was busy
Especially for a Sunday
^^^ which I think says a lot (as being the only ones in a restaurant does make you wonder...)
The Warm Up:
Melt-in-the-mouth game pate.
^^^ highly recommend!!
That salty, buttery like texture (I could eat it again, right now)
Marinated olives (which had a lovely spicy kick to them)
I went for the seafood risotto.
All in a rich and creamy tomato sauce
^^^ which had a nice spicy garlic kick to it.
And topped with parmesan cheese (because the French eat it and they don't have as many heart attacks as us)
My dad went for the seabass
And the wife went for a pizza
^^^ which reminds me, I've got an awesome pizza recipe coming soon that might just help the health of your gut, too!!
This was finished in true stereotypical 'Italian' style with...
Freshly ground, fruit-like smelling coffee beans back at the Fruci household....
So if you're looking for places to eat in the Marlborough area, I can recommend Pino's for an Italian...
Do you have any recommendations?
Let me know.
PS. If you're looking for an Indian: check out The Palm (It might just give you a boost)
PPS. For a tapas, I like No.48 Tapas Bar and Grill (review here)
And I might be recommending Rick Stein's for your fish and chips in Marlborough soon
