Veggie omelette with bacon…

Standard

Hi,

A bit spontaneous but why not….
I had some leftovers from the day before: cooked potatoes, carrots and green beans.

I decided to make an interesting dish out of it…

I fried bacon with red onion, added the leftovers, add herbs and spices (black pepper, cayenne pepper, cumin, and thyme). Then I fried it for a couple of minutes and poured with an omelette cake (two eggs, salt, 50ml water and two tablespoons of flour). I fired it for about seven minutes, then changed sides and fried for another four minutes.

Voila, That’s it enjoy your dish!

Future Food…

Standard

Hi,

As busy mom I had no time to write any posts. My apologies. My head is full of ideas and I hope to find more time in the nearest future.

Just this week I was listening to a journalistic article which covered subject of cultured meat. This journalist mentioned about sponsored research for “vegetarian” meat replacement. Meat grown on a petri plate…

in-vitro-meat

In the last months I’ve been reading a lot about food industry and all the tricks of food marketing. That’s made me thinking of what is still left to eat. I’m really shocked about all chemicals, sugars, fat, and salt added to our food. Nowadays food is a product, like shoes, table. Only what counts is the profit of food company. It’s not about our health. It’s not real food any more! Well.. maybe you can buy some from a local farmer but it’s super expensive and not available in a regular super market.

In these last months I’ve been also thinking a lot about becoming vegetarian, if not even vegan. I can’t really stand the cruelty that happens to all animals. It really hurt when I think of it. However, I’m not convinced yet if this is really my thing. Therefore this topic is even more interesting to me!

So hearing that journalist I reminded myself about an article I’ve been reading. It’s been about cultured meat. Thanks to that article I found this interesting portal http://www.futurefood.org which writes all about replacing animal products with products that are not derived from animals. I know it sounds fake and artificial but the idea is to growth meat, milk drinks or egg replacement from the original proteins. The structure and taste should be identical with the original/natural ones.

Is it good and healthy? I don’t know but this is definitely an interesting topic. I really recommend to read their page. If you’re a vegetarian/vegan, take a look at “vegetarian meat” section that lists all kind of meat substitutes. It’s really interesting and useful. You get forwarded to different meat substitutes producers in all kind of countries.

So here’s a citation from “Future Food” portal about cultured meat: “In-Vitro meat is the (idea of) manufacturing of meat products through “tissue-engineering” technology… Starting cells are taken painlessly from live animals, they are put into a culture media where they start to proliferate and grow, independently from the animal. Theoretically, this process would be efficient enough to supply the global demand for meat.”

This is crazy and very brave vision… I am really intrigued by this topic. Do I want to eat this kind of food? I’m not sure yet…

Just take a look yourself. I’m really curious of your opinion!

Eat Local, Think Global…

Standard

Hi,

We are often told to eat and act locally but with an increased amount of oversees products on our shelves, I start to think… who in fact does follow this rule? We are so prone to buy easy food. Already chopped for us, fresh for a week, ready and easy to use. Is it really healthy? More than a year ago I have noticed that the taste of salad that is washed, chopped and packed is suspiciously strange. In fact, it wasn’t tasty at all! It didn’t taste like a salad! The ingredients label indicated just the salad…. What about the chemicals that were not mentioned but easy to taste? Why everyone is lying to us? Why for example all “healthy” packed orange juices taste all the same, all year long? We are living in an extremely deceitful world. Just becoming more unhealthy, weak and obese…

For everyone who has a bit of interest in a healthy life style I recommend this great youtube movie!

Paella in Calella…

Standard

Hi,

2014-06-27 15.20.46

I couldn’t resist to share it with you… We were in Spain, Calella and I ate the best ever paella. We ordered it at the beach and the result was far better than expected. The presentation was very good too… What do you think?

Do you like paellas?

What I ate… Thursday 15th of May 2014

Standard

Hi,

 

There are days that I don’t know what to eat and I don’t want to eat. This Thursday was such a day.

When I woke up I already knew it’s going to be an unusual day…

 

BREAKFAST:

I started my breakfast with yoghurt and muesli.

2014-05-15 09.01.01

 

SECOND BREAKFAST:

Before going to swim I decided to eat at least some bread. I didn’t feel like eating my own bread so I decided for quick carbs and fat. I ate toasted hamburger bun with butter, cheese and pickles. To drink I had a half liter cup of tea.

15-05-2014

 

LUNCH:

For lunch I had another half liter cup of tea and an apple, bread with butter and double cheese, pickles, plus fried German sausages with Mexican ketchup and mustard.

2014-05-15 14.39.59

 

DINNER:

I was full and I didn’t feel like eating anything heavy. This dish reminded me times when I was young. Cooked potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and asparagus, topped with butter and breadcrumbs, and served with a fried egg.

This picture isn’t so aesthetic, I ruined my egg while serving in on my dish… Well, it happens! :)

15-05-2014-19.30

For drink I had Belgium beer, Kriek MAX:) I love it!

SNACK:

As this day was pretty different from what I eat normally, and I really didn’t feel like eating a proper supper, I decided to treat myself with two spoons of Cote D’or Milk chocolate.

15-05-2014-Cote Dor Melk

 

Summarising my day… It wasn’t sophisticated at all. It looked a bit trashy but that’s how I felt as well. I think it’s pretty human to have these days when you absolutely don’t want to invest any time and energy in cooking, and even worse, you don’t know what you want to eat! Luckily the day after I had my taste and energy back…

As recently said, I want to write at least one post per month. That’s good for now on:)

My head is full of ideas and I hope I finally will find time to share them with you. I hope in the next year my blogging adventure will be more exciting!

what is next

Let’s see what the next 12 months will bring “on my dish”.

 

Hugs to you all!

What I ate… Thursday 24th of April 2014

Standard

Hi there,

 

It’s been a very long time since I’ve written a post. As you know I became a mother and my little, cute baby boy took all of my attention away.

04-09-2014-Anna with Leon

Work, sports, household activities, cooking, friends and the baby filled all my free time.

My head is full of ideas and I’d like to share these with you guys. It’s a bit too early to get to the point where I wrote all these nice and very detailed posts but don’t worry, I’ll get back to this!

For now on, I’ll try to update you guys with what I eat. I’ll try to place a post at least once a month and if possible a bit often.

I hope you’ll stay with me…

 

 

So, let’s get started.

BREAKFAST:

Thursday is my day off and I had a chance to sleep longer. But no, unfortunately I awake very early today! Guess why? I was just hungry!

To begin my day properly and feel good about myself, I ate two slices of bread with Philadelphia natural spread and salmon. Next to this, I ate a bit of lettuce and cucumber. To drink I had green tea.

2014-04-24 07.20.58

 

SNACK:

Before getting to a swimming pool I decided to eat some little snack: green olives, Gouda cheese and Italian sausage.

2014-04-24 09.32.50

After this I ate some one orange and grapefruit. It was delicious!

2014-04-24 09.33.27

 

SNACK 2:

After swimming pool I went shopping. I took me a bit longer than I expected. I had no food with me besides my son’s rice waffles with apple cinnamon taste. They are very small but big enough to survive until lunch:)

2014-04-24 20.26.03

 

LUNCH:

I ate a piece of bread with butter and cottage cheese with yoghurt and radish. To drink I had just water.

24-04-2014

 

DINNER:

Once I moved from my old house, I had to stopped with biological vegetable packets. Unfortunately this service was not available at my new neighbourhood. After a year I found a new one, jupiii! It makes my meals so much interesting!

This week I got turnip tops :)

2014-04-24 17.20.54

I decided to make a salad out of it. I added pickled vegetables (onion, carrots and red paprika), onion, olive oil, and salt with pepper.

2014-04-24 17.37.13

I decided to serve this great super healthy salad with lamb cotelette topped with cheese, and fried potatoes with eggplant, leek and crème, spiced with curry, salt and pepper. To drink I had cultured buttermilk :)

SUPPER:

Those who know me, know that I mostly eat sandwitches for supper. Today I ate two slices of bread with butter and ham. Served with two tomatos, a bit of chopped onion and yoghurt; spiced with salt and pepper. To drink I had black tea.

Hi,

Well, I again felt like consuming a lot of milk products.

BREAKFAST:

Toasted German white bread with olive oil, mozzarella and cucumber. For drink I had home-made raspberry-strawberry milkshake (no sugar added). Yummy….

LUNCH:

After hard workout at the swimming pool I felt like eating exactly the same, a lot of proteins and sugar from fruits. Therefore I decided to eat the same as for breakfast.

Well, the only difference was an extra carrot:) The rest wast the same: toasted German white bread with olive oil, mozzarella and cucumber. For drink I had home-made raspberry-strawberry milkshake (without sugar).
