As the year comes to an end we are get lazier to stick to a healthy eating program and I’m finding myself craving all kinds of unhealthy foods…in my case pizza, because I LOVE pizza!!!
This innocent little Tuna melt have the perfect crispy bread base, with a good portion of protein from the tuna, plus it’s hot and gooey with melted cheese, sounds like pizza to me! But, this Tuna melts contain fewer calories than your pizza slice and the rye bread is much healthier than the white wheat flour base of a pizza.
I deliberately use mozzarella cheese as it contains less sodium and fat than your average cheddar cheese. There is also no need to butter the bread since we are using mayonnaise.
This makes a great lunch or light supper especially when you are on holiday and don’t have a lot of ingredients at hand.
I love beetroot salad but I don’t enjoy all sugar and who know’s what else they add in the store-bought pickled versions. Beetroot is in season now and you can pick up a bag full of this goodness for a reasonable price.
Nothing beats a freshly made beetroot salad and I have a sugar-free vinaigrette that will still give you that sweet and tangy flavor of a pickled salad.
Add some Fresh spring onion, finely sliced crunchy onion rings and chunks of Feta Cheese and you have a winner side dish.
We’ve been experiencing some lovely sunny days in Mpumalanga with glorious rain showers in the afternoons, my idea of a perfect day! But if you can’t wait for the afternoon showers to cool you down then have fruit tea in the meantime.
This makes a lovely tea that is super good for you with all the natural ingredients. Personally I prefer drinking it hot but you are more than welcome to chill it, and serve it as an iced tea instead.
The recipe is just a guideline, add any fruits you have available! Be creative with this one.
Therefore I won’t refer to it as a recipe but rather use my words selectively and say “method” instead.
Every time some fancy diet hits the market we end up with new ways to fool ourselves into thinking that we are eating carbohydrates. Same goes for the cauliflower rice which apparently started with the Paleo diet?
Well I certainly don’t mind, just wish I could find some spaghetti squash, that will make my day.
Enjoy your cauliflower rice as a substitute for rice in your dishes. It goes really well with a beef curry!
I accidentally came across this black sesame seed bread and couldn’t wait to bake it! This little black bread’s colour is solely due to the 1/2 cup of black sesame seeds added to the batter. This is like a little taste of heaven on your tongue, the slight sweetness, the nutty taste from the sesame and the moist ever so delicious texture of the bread….divine!
Anyway…with the luscious aroma of roasted sesame seed and melted butter hanging in my kitchen,I decided there and then that this bread should be served at my funeral buffet!
Since I’m busy with my pre funeral plans I would also like to request that my favourite feel good song is played.
