Now what?
Its easier to make than it looks like!
Take the washed tomatoes and get rid of the skin. Then slice it in even squares of 1 cm.
Do the same with the cucumber.
Slice the mozarella, beetroot and the surimi sticks in chunks ( just how large you like them).
Then add the leaves of basil after you bruise them as then they unleash that amazing smell!
Finally add the freshly washed green salad.

Mix the dressing ingredients in a cup and add it to the salad.

Surprisingly light lover

23 Mar

You want to eat but not specifically gain weight. Its common knowledge that less carbon in your food makes a lighter meal and.. bonus.. does not directly stick to your thighs and belly.

What if you feel like a pizza margharita but you are not willing to sacrifice your waist for it?

Then go fetch the following ingredients:

– 2 eggs
– 2 small tomatoes
– parmazan
– 1 teaspoon black pepper
– salt (less is better because parmazan is salty already)
– 2 spoons of olive oil

Now what?

Get a pan and drop the 2 spoons of olive oil in it and heat it up slowly so you can prepare the rest.
Take the washed tomatoes and get rid of the skin. Then slice them in 0,5 cm slices.

You can directly place them in the pan as it should be hot by now.
After 2 minutes you can add the eggs which you have put the seasoning in.

Let it cook on a low level so it can take its time. Then add the love ingredient to it, the parmazan..

After 2 minutes its done and ready to serve. You can always add some mozarella to it, but this version is the one with no strings attached 🙂

Enjoy and let me know how this one works for you!

Summer love salad

21 Mar

That breeze in your face, the sun on your arms and the love in your heart. But now you are hungry. What to eat that will not throw this feeling away but actually enhances it? The Summer Love Salad!

Ingredients:

  • 100 gr goat cheese
  • 1 green sweet pepper
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes
  • 10-15 grapes (add more if you want)
  • 2 big spoons of corn
  • 200 gr of green salad
  • 50 gr leek
  • 200 gr melon (yellow one)
  • Dressing consists of:
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 1 tea spoon of salt
  • hot pepper, as much as makes you happy

 

Now what?

Take the sweet pepper and slice it in 4 chunks, after you have washed it. Then take each chunk and slice it in even lines of about 0,5 cm.

Wash the tomatoes and slice them in even sizes cubes. Don’t peel of the skin! (half of the vitamines 🙂 )

Take the melon and do the same (of course here you do get rid of the skin..).

The goat cheese feels a bit mushy, which is good, but it does make it harder to get it into even chunks. Good news! They do not have to be! Just make small pieces and add them to the rest.

The grapes (preferably without the seed, if they do contain it, lose them!) are best divided in even slices.

Add the freshly washed corn and the green salad to the rest.

Take the dressing and mix it through the whole family (I prefer using my clean hands, but feel free).

 

Take this salad to where you were just enjoying the summer breeze and enjoy it. Maximum effect when you put on a Norah Jones cd!
