Practical Advice From an Evolved Soul by Marcus Dino: Tens List with Excerpt





TENS LIST

My ten least favorite foods 
by 
Marcus Dino 


My ten least favorite foods are generally all high in nutrition but who cares I hate the taste,  As my character Fifi Larouche would say “Why is it that anything that tastes good is bad for you and anything that tastes bad is good for you?”


1).    Cauliflower.....If cooked with olive oil not bad but boiled?  Ugh...

2).    Liver...Torture having this as a kid for dinner.  I think it was form of punishment by my mother...many times with cauliflower or squash.

3).    Brussels Sprouts...This is one of the most healthiest foods...and in my opinion one of the worst tasting....

4).    Squash....Ugh.....

5).    Mahi Mahi fish... I like most fish but not this kind.  Hate the taste

6).    Sweet Potatoes...I just never like this...Always served at Holiday functions and maybe to please the family I would eat little...very little...of it....

7).    Squid....Remember trying it once as a kid....Once was enough......

8).    Octopus.....The same as squid....I tried it once...perhaps like a 'salty chewing gum?'

9).    Poi...Growing up in Hawaii....A favorite food at luaus...Like a medicine type taste...I don't know how people eat this....

     10) Scallops...I like seafood but never have been crazy about shellfish, lobster, or crab.


What is one food that you just hate?



ABOUT THE BOOK


Practical Advice from an Evolved Soul
by Marcus Dino

 

BLURB:


"Fulfill your destiny Fifi, as you wander through the Wilderness," Goth her spirit guide tells her....

Marcus Dino's latest book 'Practical Advice from an Evolved Soul', an anthology like it's smash hit predecessor, 'Diary of a Mad Gen Yer.' has 21st century actress/heroine Cheryl 'Fifi' Larouche coming back outrageous as ever introducing new 'Silly Stories,' 'Silly Poems,' and 'Silly Blogs', plus an added new twist using the world of Twitter, Fifi's 'Silly Tweets.'

'Practical Advice from an Evolved Soul' is third in a series of 'Fifi's stories following Marcus Dino's top ten Amazon Bestseller 'Diary of a Mad Gen Yer' in addition to his original Hollywood novel 'Fifi.'

Many of the major characters from Mr. Dino's two earlier book are back in 'Evolved Soul' including Fifi's boyfriend Biff, her obstinate father Charles, and her two alien friends from the planet Zatoris, Alocki and Helos. In addition there are some very interesting new characters in 'Evolved Soul' including a long dead Englishman who said he knew great literary figures such as Dickens and Keats called 'The 200 Year Old Great Writer,' and two entities who say they are 'Fifi's Spirit Guides' Goth and Au.

Both Goth and Au write very inspirational blogs that convey a strong message in the 'Blogs' section of 'Evolved Soul.'

'Practical Advice from an Evolved Soul' is both humorous and inspirational and like it's two predecessors will entertain the reader from beginning to end.
