Nothing like a little magical tablet to spice up your weeknight. Or perhaps sweet up your weeknight?
Yesterday Anthony and I headed to LivingSocial’s Miracle Berry Party where we popped a little pill filled with magical berries, and then ate really random foods. It was a neat event — loved the atmosphere.
The pill looks like ecstasy or some other hard drug, but it’s really just a condensed form of a rare “miracle fruit” called synsepalum dulcificum. You eat it, and then everything you eat for the next hour is extremely sweet!
Example: a lemon tastes like super sugary lemonade! I ate four lemons no problem. Crazy.
We also ate a ton of salt and vinegar chips, strawberries dipped in cream cheese, and other really strange food combinations that sounded awful but tasted delicious. When the miracle effects were finally wearing off, we headed to Nando’s for some chicken.
Bad idea to order spicy Peruvian chicken after downing a random pill and 1 lb of citrus fruits, but whatever. I was literally sweating while I ate this meal because, as the flag states, this chicken was hot. Good thing Anthony knows by now that I am sweaty 90% of the time.
Somehow, though, the combo was perfect fuel for a run this morning! I hit the track and felt really, really good. Anthony really loves his DC Road Runners shirt.
