Weekends are usually less stressful than weekdays because it is time for rest and I use this time to get the most out of my food especially when I don’t go out.
If you are currently reading this, then you will know I love food. I love; shopping, preparing, cooking and making food art. Food love can sometimes pose a threat to keeping fit if you are constantly in contact with food. It becomes easy to get out of the three meals window to nitpick on everything. This is why snacks are important, even more so when they are healthy and can be carried around. Continue reading “Healthy Snack Ideas”
This is a healthy and fun recipe, with focus on the avocado salsa and peppered gizzard, since you only have to boil the brown rice with just water. The great thing about this avocado salsa is you can pair with almost any food of choice. From rice to corn to yam.
What is a balanced diet? It is basically a meal consisting of all (or almost all of) the classes of food we have. Carbs, proteins, fat, vitamins and minerals.
It can be also be termed as a healthy meal comprising of whole foods with adequate calories, micro and macronutrients.
Oha soup is a soup enjoyed by the Igbo people of Nigeria. One of the things I love about the soup is that it is an actual meal on its own. You can eat alone or with eba (garri), wheat meal and the likes. It is also highly nutritious.
This is a bougie version of the spaghetti boarding house students make in the dorms. This is only natural as I was one myself. However, this version is healthier and more delicious.
Ofada rice is made using the local rice grown in Nigeria. It is different from the typical rice because it is more difficult to mill and polish, therefore some or all of the rice bran is left on the grain, strengthening the flavour and making it more nutritious than the more common rice imported. While it is indigenous to the Yoruba people (Ogun state specifically), it is now a party staple in major cities of the country (and beyond). As usual, I’ll be showing you a super fun and easy way to prepare ofada rice and the stew made specially for it called ayamase.
I had to include party worthy in the title because jollof rice lovers know there is jollof rice, party jollof rice and concoction rice. Out of which we love party jollof rice the most, rave about it and use it as our claim to culinary fame. I am all about holistic living and hence do not like sachet tomato (puree) paste. Some people have argued by adding it is the only way to achieve proper jollof rice in all its orangish-red glory… I disagree.
I didn’t plan to post the recipe of this meal because it seems strange but it is delicious, I promise. The idea of this food came when I had extra hibiscus tea and decided to make good use of it. And like most of my recipes, it is very easy to make, specially created for the busy and lazy. 😎
