Anne in Oz keeps her hubby healthy with these herby salads. I’ve seen many of these mentioned in Prescription for Nutritional Healing so I’m trying to grow some of them again this year, but I was unsure how exactly to use them fresh. Now I don’t have to wonder, as Anne shows how right here in her wonderful post!
1 and 2. Rice noodles tossed with Szechwanese meat sauce (leftover from Fat Tuesday)
3. pineapple chunks
4. sliced apples
1. Leftover chili from Superbowl Sunday Dinner
3. Carrot sticks and apple slices
4. Mixed greens with apricot-apple cider dressing
1. Miso soup with shiitake mushrooms
2. Sweet wild rice rolled sushi — this was a Korean product that you cook 1 part sweet wild rice-3 parts regular rice. It’s a similar rice to the one we use for Filipino puto bumbong — this turned out okay, but I don’t think I’ll be using it again for sushi anytime soon.
3. The sushi was supposed to have some simmered wakame inside, but I started late and couldn’t get it done in time:( — so instead I packed steamed mussels drizzled with a bit of ginger-miso sauce similar to but a bit thinner than this, with some ginger juice added.
4. Daikon and carrot vinegared salad.
+ A banana and Stash White Christmas tea
Lime theme today:
1. Lentil soup, made from a base of the leftover chili last night (the chili recipe will be at LTC — finished off with what else? A squeeze of lime
2. Rice, as usual — I asked him and he wants it in the BIG container LOL
3. Sliced grilled flank steak — marinated overnight in lime juice, garlic and salt and pepper
4. Pan-fried plantain banana slices, glazed with maple syrup and lime juice
From the bottom up:
1. Chicken broth with chicken strips, carrots and celery
2. Moros y Cristianos a.k.a. black beans and rice, recipe to be posted at LTC
3. Sauteed Mushrooms in Red Wine Sauce, leftovers:D — recipe to be posted at LTC as well
4. Sliced peaches
Day 2, from the bottom up:
1. Rice topped with Adobo flakes
2. Bean and collard greens soup, recipe to be posted…
3. Carrot sticks with Robert Rothchild’s Roasted Red Pepper and Onion Dip & Relish
4. Sliced up apple
Unless anyone wants to join me, that is.
I’m starting MHBB, “My Hubby’s Bento Box“, so I can keep track of what da hubby eats on a daily basis. I got him this for Christmas:
because I was getting frustrated with the single Rubbermaid and Tupperware containers we had here that could only hold one or two types of food. He needs a greater variety.
The Zojirushi Bento box has 4 containers, 1 really large one and 3 other smaller ones. I’ll try to get pics in, but I have not mastered the art of Bento box packing, so they won’t look as pretty as Japanese lunches.
Day 1, from the bottom up:
+ a banana and a packet of green tea
