Hello wonderful people! May I say I am pleased to meet you in 2017 🙂
A new year filled with new possibilities, new chances and new outcomes. How many of you have made new year’s resolutions ? How many of you are STILL being able to follow them? If you are, kudos to you, you are very strong ! Me on the other hand, just like the others, gave up on the last day of the first week. (I am guilty but not charged -_-)
All is not lost my friends! Let us not give up, let us get stronger. The fact that we realise that maybe we are falling back to our old self,is a great start to something different. We just have to take a step back, look at our actions and distractions and make the necessary changes accordingly.
Trust me I am at that stage myself, fighting every second to make the better choice. For me it involves, eating healthier, fighting fear and anxiety , motivating myself to make choices that scream self-love and self-respect. What does it involve for you? 🙂
On that exciting note, let me present to you our first food post of 2017 YAY!!
MACCOLI. It is a quirky name, I know. 😀 It is whole wheat delicious macaroni with spicy broccoli and garlic sauce on the side. Yummy, comfort food for the sort-of cold weather we have here in Dubai, with a little fiery kick. So here we go.
TIME TO PREPARE:
1 cup Whole Wheat Macaroni-cooked (You can use the brand that is easily available to you)
3/4 cup Broccoli-chopped into small florets (You can eat them raw or steamed- I used raw for a good crunch).
1 tbsp Dried Parsley
1/2 cup Jalapeno Chili-chopped
3/4 cup Black Olives-sliced
1 big tbsp Fresh Garlic Sauce-I bought it fresh from Spinneys’ supermarket. Point is it needs to be fresh, not the pre-packaged ones.
A squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice(Optional)
HOW TO PREPARE:
Once the macaroni is cooked. Strain it and keep aside. Let it cool for a few moments.
Take a bowl, add in all the ingredients including the macaroni.
Mix well and serve. Enjoy!
Great for lunches and dinners with family. Absolutely perfect for work.Just prepare it a night before or even in the morning and take it with you in a pretty lunch box or a grown-up bento box.Love those! Happy 2017 once again!
Share your love.
