Today when I reached the outdoors space to photo shoot this dish, it started raining…
I stayed under the rain with my steamed fish with ginger and turmeric and the banana purée with turmeric, ginger, avocado, chickpeas, black sesame seeds and olive oil.
It was cold, I didn’t get the perfect pictures and I didn’t enjoy my soggy meal afterwards, but it’s okey… Anything to me nowadays is okey… As the only things that truly matter are Health&Happiness, and this year is a living example of that!
Everyday as I wake-up and before going to bed I pray to all those who are ill, suffering from COVID-19 or other diseases… We truly don’t know how important it is to take care of our health or be safe and precautious until something happens to us or our loved ones … Prayers and thoughts to the one’s we’ve lost this year 🙏🏻🙏🏻 and a quick recovery to the ones at the hospital 🙏🏻
And to those who are still alive, in good health, or recovered from Covid-19 here’s a meal to strengthen your immunity, boost your memory and mood and help you stay in shape!
Fish is a great source of proteins and omega-3.Consuming it 3 times per week helps bolster your memory.
I steamed it with banana leaves, ginger, turmeric and served it with some Fava beans and yellow tomatoes.
Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.
Chickpeas are rich in proteins, fiber and saponins. Also contain Choline which helps with brain and nervous system function; improving mood, muscle control and memory.
Avocados are a fruit not a vegetable they have the highest protein content amongst all fruits .The fat content of avocados can lead to feelings of satiety which can help with appetite regulation.
I puréed a banana instead of using any other source of carbohydrates that will not contain 1/4 of the nutrients a banana has! Try mixing a puréed banana with 1/2 an avocado, 2 tbsp chickpeas, black sesame seeds, 1 tsp turmeric and freshly grated ginger with a teaspoon of olive oil and let me know how much you’ll enjoy this superfood healthy exotic blend!
