By | September 4, 2016

I’m not a vegan, and can never be for my love of dairy is too great to abandon. In the recent year or so the Vegan movement seem to be taking over the planet for a moment -vegetarians, where are you?- and whenever I browse the social media account of a vegan I happen to come across one version or another of something they call “Nicecream” or “Nice Cream” and they keep raving about it the way they were raving about Read more »

By | August 28, 2016

Fan of Mexican food? I absolutely am, in fact Mexican ranks second as my favourite cuisine of all times. Whenever I crave a fajita, a sizzling one with all the works, I usually head to one of the American franchises around Kuwait. However, since I’m trying to live a healthier life sans the excess salt, fat, and surprise spice that attacks my stomach mercileccily I began to make mine at home. This recipe must be the easiest, lightest, and quickest way to get a guiltless fajita fix. Read more »

Trying the Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust

By | August 23, 2016

Let me start by stating the fact that I do not like cauliflowers.

In fact, I loathe them.

The smell, the taste, the texture. I’m a vegetable loving vegetarian who actually does crave broccoli but never could stand to be within a metre of cauliflower in any shape or form including the very famous fried cauliflower and eggplant sandwich we call Meshakkal in Kuwait. Never was a fan. The same goes for sweet potatoes, I just could never understand their over-sweetened taste nor embrace it as a vegetable.  Read more »

By | September 16, 2013

Since I’ve been having quinoa, almost on daily basis, for the past few weeks I always am on the look for new ways of eating it. My favourite quinoa dishes are almost always salads and this one, with grilled bell peppers a.k.a. capsicums. On the day I took these pictures I only had some yellow bell peppers in the fridge but my absolute favourites are grilled red bell peppers. Read more »

Recipe: Quinoa with Broad Beans & Dill

By | September 9, 2013

Growing up, rice with broad beans & dill or what we call in Kuwait “Bajela w Shbent” was a favourite lunch dish of mine. It is traditionally made with chunks of meat and daqqos tomato sauce at home but I’ve always opted to mix it with low fat yoghurt instead. I was craving it the other day but since I’m still on the path of losing the Ramadan weight and testing out quinoa in recipes I’ve decided to make the dish, subsituting rice with quinoa and see how it would turn out. To my surprise the recipe turned out to be a success and had I not made the dish myself I wouldn’t have realised I was actually eating quinoa!  Read more »

Recipe: Quinoa & Pomegranate Salad

By | September 3, 2013

I’m still experimenting with using quinoa and I realised that I prefer eating cold quinoa mixed in some sort of salad instead of hot quinoa as I’m still not used to the taste of hot quinoa. Yesterday I decided to try and make a quinoa salad so basically I just grabbed whatever was in my fridge and chopped it up to make a nice healthy low-fat quinoa salad with ruby-like pomegranates seeds peeking through.

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 :)
