My New Best Friend, The Breadstick.


It started about three weeks ago, thanks to Pizza Hut and their ‘Free Unlimited Salad Bar’ with any main meal.  I tried the breadsticks they have on the salad bar and they are beyond delicious, I don’t know what’s in them, but they are.  One thing lead to another, and  I found myself in the nibbles aisle of Morrissons, buying breadsticks.  It occurred to me, while sitting in Pizza Hut, eating half a Stuffed Crust pizza to myself, that they could be a valuable slimming aid.

On those occasions when food is too long a time away, and your whole body is pulling you towards the cupboard where the crisps and chocolate biscuits are, I now get a breadstick instead.  They average around 19 or 2o calories per stick, depending on the brand, and 0.something (a trace) grams of fat.  Basically, they’re quite healthy, but fill you up nicely.  Think of how many breadsticks you could eat, and still be having less fat and calories than a packet of crisps.  It’s a lot.  Also, they’re delicious, and don’t taste of fat like crisps.

So far I’ve tried two brands; Morrissons healthy eating ones, and Morrissons Italian range.  The first, being packaged as low fat and low calorie but actually containing exactly the same as the others, weren’t as nice.  They didn’t have much flavour, and tasted (ironically) slightly of oil.  The Italian breadsticks are lovely, and very satisfying.  I’m going to try as many as possible, and will keep you posted.

By the way, they go lovely with a cup of tea.

Sylvia Plath said; "Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences". My aim in life is to find things and people to love, so that I can write about them. Putting words together is the only thing I can see myself doing. This blog is an outlet, and I hope you enjoy reading it.

The New Remorse, Oscar Wilde.

The sin was mine; I did not understand.
So now is music prisoned in her cave,
Save where some ebbing desultory wave
Frets with its restless whirls this meagre strand.
And in the withered hollow of this land
Hath Summer dug herself so deep a grave,
That hardly can the leaden willow crave
One silver blossom from keen Winter's hand.

But who is this who cometh by the shore?
(Nay, love, look up and wonder!) Who is this
Who cometh in dyed garments from the South?
It is thy new-found Lord, and he shall kiss
The yet unravished roses of thy mouth,
And I shall weep and worship, as before.
