No more beauty creams!! If we want to look young…faces untouched by the years passing by ( like Dorian Gray!) this is what we must eat…Goji !!!
(Cristina’s readers) What???
Yes, this is what France talks about …Actually a good friend of mine (who is a great cook!) asked me if I knew “goji”. I thought it was some sort of cereal, but no….it is a kind of dried fruit, apparently responsible for the longevity of Tibetans. (among some other virtues.)I opened my eyes wide!! We do so many irrational expensive things in the name of beauty…looking young…that I thought: ” If the Tibetans have eaten this for generations, living looooong, healthy lives…why not an Argentinian living in Paris??!!!
My friend advised me to include these berries in my salads, or with my cereals, but I have a sweet tooth, so I decided to invent the “goji biscotti”..Yes, no more group Botox sessions with the “chicas” ;D …now, we will all meet at home to have coffee and goji biscotti !!
“But we will put on some weight”, one of my “chicas” said..(yes, there is always some reasonable intellectual in the group that shatters your dreams and hopes! =(
“Well, girls, we can’t have everything in life !!! either we lose some wrinkles, or we lose some grams !!! Everything is impossible!! What’s more, my reasonable husband always says that when I lose too much weight, I have more wrinkles…and there, I MUST admit (grudgingly!) that he IS right…( yes, I must say he is right…from time to time ;D
So, looking for a great biscotti recipe, I found this one by Martha Stewart, which I immediately loved because it has polenta, which suits my Italian background AND gives the biscotti an attractive yellow color!
So follow Martha’s recipe here using goji instead of cranberry…and that’s it!!
Where do we find goji in Paris? In G Detout (of course) and it has also become the “fetish” product of La Grande Epicerie de Paris ( Le Bon Marché )
