Recipe: Quinoa with Okra Stew

By | September 23, 2013

Ever since I began cooking quinoa I really wanted to use it with one particular dish, maraq bamiya (okra stew). You see, if quinoa passes the maraq bamiya test, it can reside their proudly on my pantry for the rest of time, banishing every last morsel of rice from the premises. The dieticians in Kuwait have been urging us to replace rice with quinoa and I already tried that twice with the quinoa mushroom risotto and the quinoa with dill & broad beans (bajela w shbent) and both time quinoa posed as the perfect protein-packed fiber-laden replacement to white rice therefore I Read more »

10 Things That Just Happen As You Diet

1- A very thin girl makes it her personal quest to destroy your diet. Whenever she sees you she’d squeal and call you too thin and “enough already” even though you’ve only lost a kilo and need 49 more to go! Why, for the love of god, why? Read more »

My Diet Motivation Idea

How do you motivate yourself while dieting to continue on the path of losing weight? God knows dieting is not easy especially living in a country where our number one hobby is creating glorious dishes and consuming them. To me, my number one reason for losing weight is sadly not health-related although I’m beginning to rethink the order of that priority, it’s looking good in my clothes and being able to buy what I want without worrying about sizes that would keep me dieting.

Day 21 marked the third consecutive week of dieting with LoFat with one last week to go. This is also the last of the repeated diet meals so starting tomorrow and for the last week I’m having new meals to try and post about. Day 21 was exactly like day 7 (post) but this time LoFat got me a mushroom fettuccini alfredo instead of the chicken one they got me last time. It was good!

Day 18 is here and is the last dieting day in 2012. Which should be a good and encouraging thing that I’m ending the year being on a diet :)  However, the menu is exactly the same as day 4 (post) so it would be pointless to repost it again now isn’t it?

Do enjoy the last day of 2012! 2013 is upon us and I wish you all a happy, prosperous, healthy year surrounded by the people you love :)
