Hellow my lovelies, sorry for the awful lack of update here on the blog but I’ve been a busy bee and it’s been impossible to sit down and blog. Well, I just did some meal preppin’, making my lunch boxes ready for work. Made a vegan version of Indian (chicken) Masala and instead of rice I replaced it with quinoa, which is a much healthier option and has a high level of protein. Marinated organic tofu. Vegan “chicken” bites. Brocooli & Go Green’s Indian Masala ready casserole, that is 100% vegan and with no salt, which is perfect!
You start by rinsing the quinoa well, the best results can be obtained by soaking the seeds for a while, the best thing you can do is do it the night before. This is done to remove the saponins, bitter substances that also affect digestion. When the seeds are rinsed, cook it with the double amount of water (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa), boiling should be under low temperature (compare it to cooking rice). They should cook about 15 minutes until the consistency is like the pasta al dente (soft but with a slight chewiness)
Then I fried the brocooli, tofu & bites until it got a beautiful toasty color and then poured the Indian Masala.
Once the quinoa was done, I added a little bit of organic herbsalt and served it with the Indian Masala! And voila, done! 😀 See, super simple mis amigos.
Quinoa; HIgh level of protein and rich on phosphorus, magnesium and iron.
Lentils; Protein, B9 – folic acid, B1, B2, B3, B6, Phosphorus, Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium & Zinc. (Vitamins B does not only do wonders for you hair, skin & nails, but also every vitamin B has a different purpose in your body. B1 & 2 helps you produce energy. B3 which is niacin, that helps to keep the skin beautiful and clean and for keeping the nervous system and your digestive healthy. B6 is an amazing boost for your immunesystem. B9 is important in the production of red and white blood cells. Lacking any of the vitamin B’s can cause anemia, depression & mostly, tiredness.)
Indian Masala; Crushed tomatoes, coconut milk, water, onion, carrots, lentils (red & brown), cauliflower, ginger, garlic, vegetarian broth & spices.
Don’t forget that if you’re vegetarian or vegan, you need to find ways to get your protein & iron.
Oh and yes, I do like pink! xD
Now, I’m going to watch the last and final ride of SOA, it’s heart-wrenching knowing it’s the last episode. Such an amazing Tvshow, and there is 2 episodes of White Collar before that one ends as well. *breaks down crying* & Gonna do my nails too, they look horrid and so short D: I managed to break all of them at the gym. -___-
