Interesting, I had no idea about celery or sweet potatoes.

Happy TT!

Robin said...

But you don't eat the rinds of a pomegranate...

I'll stick with sweet potatos and pineapples I think. Sounds much more appealing.

There is an argument that eating an aphrodisiac every day is the best way to lose weight :-)

So if I give in to my insatiable craving for sweet potato I may ultimately find myself frustrated if other cravings aren't satisfied? Very important to know! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Fabulous TT entry.
I prefere Oysters, but the price and the difficulty to find them every day prevenents me to have them as often that I would love to.

The rest, but one, I can buy every day and even pick in our summer garden.
Feel so so young--- LOL
