Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food
I discovered this recipe over 20 years ago in a leaflet of the “AOK Krankenkasse” in Berlin. I loved it so much that i kept it through all my moves from Germany to Ireland, Switzerland, Spain and the UK. It’s great when you travel!
I love French pancakes. Unfortunately they contain eggs, milk and oil! I tried variations but it never really satisfied me… Until my very good friend Sandrine sent me a link to a Semolina pancake recipe by a young Irish chef: Donal Skekan. I have become completely addicted. It is DELICIOUS.
February 2nd in France is “Chandeleur” day. Fourty days after Christmas, the Chandeleur (literally meaning day of the candles) celebrates the presentation of Jesus to the Temple. However, its religious meaning is often forgotten and most people see the “Chandeleur” as Pancake Day or rather “crêpe” and “galette” day.
Last night, I tried another BBC Food recipe. I have tried a lot of their recipes and I have never been disappointed. Last night was no different! Of course I adapted the recipe to the Overcoming MS diet (and served it with udon noodles) and it was really delicious. And it is easy too 😉 It took about 45 minutes, including the marinating time, to prepare and about 20 to cook.
This is a great recipe prepared by our friend Margreet. It took me some time to prepare the rice paper wraps but it is worth the effort!
I have always loved fresh salads but since starting the OMS diet, i eat even more salads than before! No heated oil, easy to control the saturated fat intake… Great! But it can get a bit boring, especially if you try to stick to local seasonal ingredients. the solution: Dress Up Your Salad!
I love home-made flaxseed crackers! They are so crunchy and tasty. This recipe is based on a recipe I found on leascooking.blogspot.ro but adapted to the OMS diet (and to my taste) so there is no oil. But since I use a lot of seeds and nuts, I am careful not to eat too many.
Last night Peter adapted this Maple-glazed Salmon with Pickled Cucumber recipe, from Health Magazine, so it had no heated oil and only – what we had in the cupboard… So the Maple-Glazed Salmon with Fennel became Honey-Glazed Salmon with Mixed-Lettuce. And it was delicious!
