Happy new year! It’s been ages since I wrote a new blog post because I’ve been busy with many things. I finally had time to make a new recipe, and it was a delicious salad.
I’ve been away from the blog for a very long time. I had many other things on my mind, and I didn’t have time, energy or inspiration to work on any new recipe. That’s what a mid-life crisis does to you. But here is one new recipe.
I’m a vegetarian, which means I don’t eat meat but dairy products, though I’m trying to cut the amount I consume. I often try vegan substitutes for cheese and yoghurt (I don’t drink milk anyway). After many trials, I now have a favourite vegan cheese: Violife Greek White.
I’ve been away for a while: I got on a plane after 2.5 years and visited my family. I also decided to be away from the internet as much as possible. I only posted random stuff on Facebook and Instagram. Now I’m back on the blog as the holiday still continues. And here is the first recipe after the break.
If you’ve ever seen at least one episode of Bob Ross’ “Joy of Painting”, you know how beloved Bob Ross is. I absolutely loved watching his program, and he was so calm and lovely. And so last week, I decided to have my own Bob Ross moment with a bunch of vegetables.
I’ll start by saying I don’t really like tofu, and I tolerate it when it comes inside my plate, and I neither like its spongy texture nor taste. However, I know that it has a lot of health benefits and it’s full of protein, so here I am, trying my best to use it in my everyday diet.
A few weeks ago, I was scrolling down Instagram’s “explore” section, and I saw a photo of eggplant katsu. I had never heard of “katsu”. As I LOVE eggplant, I had to try this ASAP. But how?
I love pasta, but try not to eat too much to keep me from a carb bombarding (I can really overeat pasta!). So this is a good way to eat pasta. There are a lot of other things in it, and you can still get a bit of pasta to overcome the craving.
Millet is an interesting grain. It is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world, and it is naturally gluten-free, but not many of my friends who are following a gluten-free diet like it. I started trying it in different recipes only recently, and I quite like it.
I like the beet family. They are tasty and nutritious. But the biggest reason why I love them, and I use them in recipes, is the wide variety of colours they bring! Just like this colourful salad!
