Today i want to share a first try of an organic energetic gluten free slice.
I used only organic products but you can just skip that and use non organic ones. Og course as usual, my recipes are adjustable. Follow your inspiration, your tastes and the things in your cupboards! 😉
Plus it’s a no bake recipe. No way you won’t try this!
In this so cold winter time, i suggest another soup recipe. Something very easy, thermomixable and really filling. Pumpkins are the best in winter!
Ok you may say, boring another pumpkin recipe soup! Yet, i fancied up by enriching it adding, coral lens, chestnut, and a spoon of oat flakes. I got this tip from my friend Saveursetastuces. Add a spoon or two of oat flakes in soups to enrich them, give them consistency. Here we go?
Put everything in the themy except sesame seeds and soya milk.
min, speed 2, 90°C
Mix at Speed 10 for 15 sec
Add soya milk and that's it!
You could try with another veggie milk, must be also good with rice milk or almond milk. Spice it up as you like. If you don’t have the magical thermomix, don’t worry just mix well all the ingredients after cooking them.
I love fried wok. I think it’s still healthy because you don’t overcook vegetables.
The really good taste comes from the marinade. Garlic, lemon, soya sauce. It’s basic.
This is another perfect meal when you hurry. Or if you have guests and you don’t want to spend to much time in the kitchen, you could have everything prepared in advance and just fry veggies and shrimps at the last moment.
Today i want to go deep into some nutritional facts. I know we are a lot wanting to lose some extra kg (christmas chocolate why are they so good?).
For the ones who don’t need/want to go on a diet, i suggest to start with some balanced and healthy meal. Ok you can call it Detox!
Every monday, you find on that blog some healthy food diner ideas.
I had some leftovers from yesterday veggie rice. I completed my plate trying to follow some of my principles.
One portion of cereal (rice and lens) for each meal
One portion of cooked vegetables (brocolis) for each meal
One portion a day of fish/egg/white meat
One portion of starchy food (here potatoes) for each meal. You could skip this portion if you are willing to lose weight.
One portion of raw vegetables or fruits.
The idea is to feel satiety, you should not be hungry anymore at all. At the end of your meal you shouldn’t be willing to have pizza or brownies 😉
And of course, the idea is also to get all the amount of vitamins, fibers and nutriments needed for your busy day.
I try to apply this principle of several portions playing with season veggies and cereal.
I can hear your thoughts » who is this foolish girl with her yummy chocolate cakes and sweats talking about healthy balanced food? »… Don’t get mad at me! I think food and life is a question of balance. In our kitchen, i try to make healthy food almost everyday. But food is also a pleasure, we are a greedy family and we all love some sweat bakery sometimes (and even foie gras!). I try to use good products, a lot of organic or market veggie & fruits, and try to avoid food processing industry.
I was really inspired by my mate Carolyn and her thaï recipe. I didn’t have all the ingredients so i imagine something a bit different. I like to use the wok when i have friends because it’s very quick to prepare and you can cut all the ingredients in advance.
In a wok: fry garlic and onion in olive oil. I only use olive oil to cook. My mediteranean roots, i feel them!
Add 1 pepper (orange for me) cut in strings
Add 2 carrots cut in strings
Meanwhile put the beef to marinate. I cut the meat in really thin slices.
Marinade: Soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, ginger in powder, cumin in powder.
When the vegetables are well done, add the beef in the wok. Stir constantly.
Serve immediatly with rice.
The success of this recipe is also about the quality of the meat. Choose very good meat. I added some sesame seeds as a topping!
