Bean-casserole

Simple enough – kidney- & brown beans with tomatoes, garlic, onion, sweet bell pepper, maize and Panang red curry paste, on a bed of mixed greens and basmati rice.

Two days

Two days have gone with this new way of eating and I feel good!
Actually very good!

The first meals I had with this low-fat/no-animal-food, I was hungry sooner after eating then I was used to. But with more beans and starch – like rise or quinoa – I keep satisfied even longer than I used to.

Dinner to night – a warm quinoa chickpea sallad.

I warmed this in a frying pan – without oil or butter. ūüėÄ
  • Some red bell pepper – diced
  • One tomato – diced
  • Maize
  • Green peas
  • Chickpeas
  • One small clove of garlic – finely chopped
  • Quinoa – cooked yesterday
  • Some lemon juice, and lemon pepper – (take it easy on that one)
  • Some oregano and parsley
  • Had to have a pinch of seasalt as well

Just toss the ingredients around in the pan until everything is nice and warm – it doesn’t have to be actually cooked. Other then the quinoa and the chickpeas of course, and that you can do beforehand and store in the fridge or freezer until you need it.

Finally! Serve on a bed of green leaves.

Also it feels so calm and well-balanced in my stomach, and it defininetely is okay for me now to eat oats again. I’m so glad about that, since it simplyfies my eating a lot. In bread and cakes, porridge, m√ľsli. It’s so good and it so benefits the body.
The trickiest is to get used to not use any oil or butter. But not worse than I can handle it.

I’m so glad I got the impuls to do this finally – not only think I ought to do something about my eating habits, and also glad for my decision to actually follow this through. ūüėÄ

Thanks also to the pep I get from visiting sites, and watching movies and videos on Youtube that help me learn more, and keep me going for this,

Movies that you can watch on Netflix are f.ex:
  • Forks over Knives;
  • Engine2Kitchen rescue;
  • What the Health;
  • Foodmatters;
  • Fat, Sick and nearly Dead, 1 and 2;
  • Cowspiracy
  • and more…

Hot Aubergine and Tomato delight

aubergine-tomato

This¬†is how it’s done!

  • 1/3 – 1/2 aubergine – thinly¬†sliced
  • 1 big¬†tomato –¬†cut in small dices
  • 1/2 medium sized¬†red sweet¬†pepper –¬†diced
  • 1 – 2 cloves of garlic¬†–¬†finely chopped
  • parsley
  • some butter – not too little
  • ca 1 teaspoon red¬†curry paste – or more if you want it really hot
  • salt
  • lemon- or lime juice

Use a frying pan that has a lid, melt the butter and let the curry paste and the garlic gently fry for a while.

Add the aubergine and turn it around in the spiced butter as good as it gets.

Fry on low temperature for a while until the aubergine is getting soft and gaining golden color.
Add the tomato and sweet pepper, mix thoroughly and then put the lid on.

Let it simmer until the aubergine is all soft and gooey, about five minutes. Stir a couple of times.

Add fresh lemon or lime juice, and season it to taste with some salt.
Serve with mixed green salad and parsley.

Tastes good on toast or slices of bread fried crispy in butter. Or with rise. I love this to fried polenta. And you can also add for example kidney beans.
