a.k.a. Mid-nite "healthy" snakcking!
Being always on the run, I forget to eat a good meal. So, cookies and chocolate are a quick fix.
Being always on the run, all food stays "longer fresh", well, FROZEN.
So after a full 4 days of shooting, and meetings, I've found myself at 2:30 a.m. after some grueling homework, I needed some sugar in my organism. And yet, wanting to be healthy. GRRRR!! I've discovered chocolate chip cookies and everything with 65% more cocoa to be on my taste. In the same time I've realized I kind of substituted almost every meal with those "goodies".
I simply picked up an apple and wanted it warm. So, I guess at 2 in the morning, anything goes… I picked what I saw first in the fridge.
Playing with the apple in my hand, I tried some juggling. All I was doing was more bruising to the apple than juggling. So I picked up a pan. And from there this came out.
A no meat snack, supposedly healthy, and no cookies in sight. I made a promise to someone special (besides myself), that I will "correct" myself. :-p
but before all the ingredients, and instructions, here is something i want to share: Ghee. The miracle Bollywood Fat or GHEE
1tsp of oil/butter/ghee
1 apple sliced, no seeds
mix in there till you can smell it
1 half cup of garlic uncut
mix together until it turns brown on both sides
1 half cup of carrots (frozen)
mix it all till carrots are softened/defrosted and then hard again
1 tomato cut European style slices
sizzle it in over all that, till turns into a paste
stir often. (i had the garlic in a bag in the freezer and it turned out very puffed up and juicy inside.- good)
With each ingredient addition, new aromas filled the kitchen.
and pour it all on toasted bread.
While all this stirring and mixing, I got really hungry so, again, opened the fridge and picked what I saw first: a guacamole jar, bread and the MILD salsa jar.
2/3 parts guacamole+ 1/3 part salsa
The spices from the salsa numbed my taste buds, and still i was able to sense each bite, with its own specific "smack and sting".
Notice, I did not add any spices, powders, dried greens, not even salt or pepper. I like to have each taste untamed, natur, if better said. :)
Now, let's get down to business. What is this good for? A mid-night snack?! Never healthy. Unless mid-night is just a number on the clock, you don't go to sleep right after.
Apple- good for digestion
garlic- anti infection
carrots- good for skin
guacamole- simply rich. FYI, in many countries in South America, mothers of newborns, if they can't nurse their babies, a liquefied paste made from avocados is made and fed to them, until they are able to eat solid foods.
salsa, just because I wanted something spicy. It was salty, but mixed with guacamole, on the hot toast, did amazing. :)
