What's the deal banana peel?

There is a unique connection between what we eat and how we feel. This thread is all about sharing food ideas and recipes that are healthy or easy so we have time to look after our health while suffering from an illness or maybe just because you can.

Whats up buttercup?

A healthy body is a healthy mind and vice versa! This will be food for the soul!

Here's an idea to get the ball rolling:

I get a kaleslaw from coles pre-made, it has five super foods in it including seeds with a very healthy yoghurt dressing. This is great in wholemeal wraps with ham and cheese for lunch or as a salad with freshly grilled chicken for dinner with toasted wraps as a crunchy feel. It usually lasts 3 days and I only dress it when I eat it. Enjoy that one on me.

Greetings... Let's do fusion "Italian - french"

I call this "pasta fumet marinara"

Medium difficulty.... What you need:

Court bouillon - google recipe then reduce by half - intensity.

Traditional Italian Napolitana : whole peeled Roma tomatoes (tinned) fresh basil, salt and sugar. Simmer tomatoes with whole basil and remove the basil when it turns black. Crush with potato masher. Adjust acidity with sugar and add salt to taste. Using your taste buds.

Pasta: fettuccini, spaghetti or linguini.. pre cook and chill.. fresh parsley chopped..

Fry pan: olive oil, crush garlic + seafood - your choice.

Mussels, prawns, scallops, calamari, fish (firm flesh)

Quick fry, add fumet (court bouillon) (amount depending on amount of servings), nap sauce, cracked black pepper + pasta. Heat through and serve with fresh parsley garnish.

Maybe use a baguette for fresh garlic bread.

Fusion = Yum

I cooked a mean spaghetti bowl lastnight, it was an trip to heaven, thinking of joining Masterchef, I’ll cook spaghetti bowl every challeng, my final dish with me slow cooked sassages with white bread dressed with tomato sauce .. I’m keen as dog biskets
