Seriously, trying to be healthy is hard work and to be honest a little inconvenient and it’s not like I’m even trying to be healthy 100% of the time. Let me take one example, since the new year I’ve been trying to increase my water intake to the recommended 2 litres a day. Well…I’m not sure how you people do it. I’m fairly sure that this initiative has decreased my productivity by at least 25%. I am constantly running back and forth from the bathroom and I’ve even downloaded an app that tells you where the nearest public loo is just in case I get into a little pickle, tragic!
Ok so I’m going to kick on with the healthy summer salads theme I got going on here and give you a recipe for THE most delicious of delicious salads. Seriously, this salad has got it going on all up and down, left to right.
Hands up in Melbourne if you are totally sick of our bipolar weather. This morning it was balmy and a touch humid and now…well let’s say I’m sitting here typing this still with my coat on looking out onto a depressing grey sky, trees swaying back and forth with the wind…sucks balls.
The seafood/fish taco is a relatively new concept to me. Until the Mexican restaurant phenomenon that has recently taken over Melbourne, my experience of Mexican food was Old El Paso out of a box and few crappy renditions of Mexican food at poor excuses for Mexican restaurants. And then I had my first prawn taco when Mamasita’s in Melbourne opened and I have been craving it ever since.
Feel like sushi at home but don’t have the 8-10 years to put aside to train to become a sushi chef? I have a super duper easy recipe for you! This is pretty much deconstructed sushi with marinated tuna sitting on top of a bed of rice. In japanese, zuke means to soak or marinate and don is short for donburi and all you need to know about that word is if you see it on a menu, it means awesome. Ok seriously, literally it means ‘bowl’ but essentially any dish with the word ‘don’ on the end means deliciousness on a bed of rice. Katsu-don (crumbed pork cutlet on rice with tonkatsu sauce), gyu-don (marinated beef on rice), oyako-don (marinated chicken and egg on rice). Any questions? Continue reading
I’m thinking it’s about time I posted a Japanese recipe. I’m not sure why it has taken me this long to post something Japanese given it’s probably my favourite cuisine. What matters is that I’m doing it now and I plan to post more of them in the future.
Don’t you love it when every now and then social injustices right themselves? Unfortunately I can’t really entertain you with the details of the situation I encountered last week as much as I am dying to but let’s just say I left work last week doing one (or maybe several) fist pumps! Hells yeah.
