I love colors – bright, neon and happy colors. They make me happy. Naturally, I love colorful food too, natural colors that is. Most of my dishes are colorful, consisting of red, orange, green and yellow. I love adding tomatoes, carrots, sweet corn kernel, scallions, kafir lime leaves and loads of garlic and onions into my dishes. These are not only colorful, they are bursting with antioxidants and disease fighting phytochemicals. They are also natural sweeteners and flavor enhancers. No need to use oyster sauce (it contains MSG) and MSG which only cause insatiable thirst and are unhealthy.
Here’s one of my colorful dishes – Colorful Fried Rice with sides of green vegetables and braised pork ribs with radish and egg.
My fried rice always has more colorful vegetables than rice. It is often meat-less. Here, I used grated and julienned carrots, sweet corn kernel, baby garden peas, kafir lime leaves, scallions, onions and garlic.
And added 4 free-range chicken eggs for the protein.
I love my colorful healthy fried rice. I only use parboiled rice which is low in GI and starch, so I eat sans the guilt 🙂
Next is my colorful pork bolognese angel hair spaghetti. The sauce is cooked from scratch with organic tomatoes, carrots, cauliflower, onions, garlic, Portobello mushrooms and lots of herbs.
Since I don’t like spaghetti noodles, I added organic oats into the bolognese sauce. My oat pork bolognese was simply delish and guilt-free too!
I always cook an extra portion so that the girls can have them for lunch the next day. This was Alycia’s lunch last Saturday, after she got back from school. Fruits for her were orange, avocado and raw red capsicum. I love my colorful healthy meals 🙂
