I appreciate food now. I used to not. I cook very well. I get better with every meal.
Soon come a lil recipe book. Look for weekly recipes here on “iAreConscious.com“.
I cook. Pretty well actually. And cooking is becoming an integral part of what makes me, me. I’ve been wanting to toss up a recipe or two on my site to share with you for a while now. It’s just I have a whole lot going on, so everything in due time. To jump start this new section of ’Recipes’, I’m posting a tuna fish salad creation of sorts. It’s not cooked food this time around, but we’ll get there soon enough. In the last couple of months I’ve created quite a few dishes that I’m sure you’ll appreciate and will post them soon.
Late Night Protein Fix
Oh no! Another tuna recipe.
They say you should never eat late at night. Yeah well I say you can, so long as you watch what it is that you’re eating. If your life consists of a lot of overnight working sessions you have no choice in the matter. Don’t starve yourself.
Anyway, I’m up and I’m hungry so I have to make something. I’ve been worrying about my carb intake during the wee hours. A friend of mine suggested the idea of a protein drink. Not a super sweet sugar loaded one; More or less raw protein you mix with water or juice. Great idea, but I don’t have anything like that on hand. No worries though, I figured something out.
The following recipe to some may be rather strange, but you know what, I dug it.
1 can solid white tuna.
1/8 thinly sliced onion (a red one would be great!)
1/4 quartered and sliced tomato
½ teaspoon of curry powder
1/4 teaspoon of fresh black pepper (yeah grind it yourself) If you have white peppercorns, even better.
½ teaspoon of parsley
½ teaspoon of minced garlic
½ tablespoon of olive oil
a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese
a few black berries (yes black berries)
It’s a salad. Toss those ingredients together in the order that they appear… ! Pretty easy wouldn’t you say?
