Ramblings about food

Confession: I've not been exercising regularly these past few weeks. Yes, I do get my workouts done but not as regularly as I'd like. Apart from feeling under the weather lately, I've been busy with work and have not been eating well. My appetite has left me.

Frankly, I'm sick of all the stuff they serve at the food court. I just can't stomach them anymore. Eating gourmet food on a daily basis is out of the question as where on earth would I find the moolah to satiate my picky tummy?

Cooking. Ughhhhh... cooking! Do I really HAVE to cook? It's the one chore that I find very tedious. Okay, actually cooking is not the bad part. It's the food preparation prior to the cooking and the cleaning up after the cooking that irks me to no end. For crying out loud, it only takes 15 minutes tops to devour a meal but it would definitely take a much longer time than that to prepare one.

Is there a miracle meal that I might not know off?

Aizan: Miracle food.... half boiled eggs.... only 5 minutes to prepare and healthy. Or like some of the suggestions i mentioned on my blog. All shouldn't take too long to prepare.

Half boiled eggs are really good. But could get quite messy when you eat it. Could I opt for scrambled eggs instead?

I'm actually opening a vegetarian restaurant in the middle of the city (opposite KLCC), and it's not going to be a typical chinese vegetarian place. Going to explore continental cuisines and minimize on the use of mock meat and concentrate on hearty vegetarian meals. We'll also have a pick up service for surrounding offices (like affordable healthy lunches). The menus will also include a nutrition breakdown of each dish. Plus we'll also run cooking classes for those who want to learn.

A salad that a friend makes for his dinner parties is always a hit and is easy to prepare. I don't know what the dressing is, but it's basically tofu (cooked and then put in cold water to harden it), mixed salad, bean sprouts (lightly cooked), seaweed and japanese caviar with the optional quail eggs. I think the dressing is a simple balsamic vinegar with olive oil. It's filling, healthy, quick and delicious!!

Or a good cold slice sandwich with salad? Easy to prepare and not much cleanup. And instead of using butter, Avocado is a great option. look around for locally grown avocados. If you want to be extra lazy in the prep, you could always use a low fat guacamole as a spread!
