A Pint of Blueberries

This site originally started with a Banana Smoothie theme.  Because I love banana smoothies, and frankly, sometimes my life is like one.  At least as much as a complicated web of breath and skin and people I love and people I try to forget and thoughts and words and accidents can resemble blended fruit.

But then I found out there was a Blueberry theme I could add to my Banana Smoothie page.  And anyone who knows me, knows I love blueberries.  I will eat a whole pint (or more if I can get it) in one go.  You can add blueberries as a garnish to just about anything (and I do.) A salad, yoghurt, icecream, its all better with blueberries.  They are healthy and delicious and I don’t hold back.

Which sometimes is also like that complicated web.  Sometimes I just dive in.  I don’t care if the serving size is half a cup; I don’t want to follow the rules.  I don’t know if you can ever reach a point where too many blueberries becomes unhealthy, but I’ll find out through trial and error.  But at the same time, you can’t live off blueberries.  They can be a nice addition, but blueberries are rarely the main event.  A blueberry just isn’t a pot roast.  And never will be.  And you can either spend the rest of your life wishing you would have had a pot roast, but then that’s decidedly less like a blueberry and maybe you should have lived the type of life where a blueberry fits.

Eating red meat is a risk factor for high cholesterol, you know. It may not constitute a meal, but a blueberry feels a lot more like home.
