My favorite breakfast these days:
homemade paneer (made of fresh cow milk) sautéd in olive oil with a bit of salt and curry,
half of a green apple seared, with cinnamon and a fresh tomato from the garden… yumm!
The recipe was inspired by this wonderful book of Sarah Wilson.
If you, as well,do not want to use feta or store-bought paneer, you can find an online recipe for the paneer here: http://indianhealthyrecipes.com/how-to-make-paneer-cubes-at-home
Barak Allahu feek for all the lovely comments on my last post!
I really appreciate your encouragements and words, al khair, inchaallah.
Marrakech – a moment to change from everyday life in our remote mountains…
for example by enjoying the food variety and the huge range of different tastes we cannot find in the High Atlas… ice-cream, pizza, burger, fast food, slow food, juices, avocados, strawberries, cake, tarts, cheese, cappuccino, … chinese, italian, indian, american, … oh so yummy!!!
some natural-, food- and spiritual- inspiration wishing you all wonderful and blessed last nights of this holy month!
Those who spend their wealth [in Allah ‘s way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly – they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. (2:274)
Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.” (2:286)
one of our this year’s healthy Id’ treats:
sugar-lactose-gluten-free chocolate pralines
very dark chocolate melted
coconut flakes grounded
sesame or linseeds grounded
nuts, pumpkin seeds, chia, etc. grounded
dates, cranberries, goji berries,…
orange flower water
mix all ingredients well and press small balls in shape, put them in little paper forms – yummy!
wishing you and yours a very happy feast-day and tabark’Allah! Id’ moubarak said!
happy ‘Id to all my Muslim readers, and peace and love for everyone!
wishing you a lovely celebration.
we celebrate this years ‘Id mostly with toothfriendly, natural and wholesome food and sweets
and are continuing the sugarfree and health-concious path we began to take this summer, inchaallah.
I never thought I would be able to feel so unattached to chocolate and sweets – but it is indeed a liberating feeling to know that I can live and really feel good without it, if I want, alhamdulillah.
the consistent sugar-abstinence last Ramadan made it possible for me to quit my sweet cravings and to vastly reduce our sugar intake. we also are much more aware now of how and what we eat, of our wheat-, processed-food-, fruit-, dairy-, etc consumption.
great inspiration I found in looking back how our ancestors ate, how our dear prophet Muhammad (sas) lived and what he ate, what nature offers and also from these people here and here and over there, there, there and there.
