When I hear : I’m going to the restaurant, but I will take a salad, because I take care of my shape...I want to say : It is not because you take a salad that you won’t put on weight !!! On the contrary, many things can make you GAIN weight : the sauce (Caesar, Ranch, etc), the toppings that are more present than real foods, and the quantity. ••• I snapped these two pictures to show you the difference between salads in 2 restaurants. In the First pic : my salad was made of : PROTEINS big slices of chicken, anchovies, and cheese • VEGGIES tomatoes, salad, capers • BREAD croutons.
In the 2nd pic : PROTEINS : 3 slices of smoked salmon, mozzarella • VEGGIES : tomatoes, zucchinis, salad, SAlad, and SALAD again. •
Difference : in one salad, I had all I need for a meal, with only a basis of actual Salad, and in the other one, I had mostly leaves of salad to fill in the bowl, more than actual nourishing foods...This kind of salads let you be hungry 2 hours after eating it, and makes you crave for treats and junk food in the afternoon or during the night...Soooo, CHOOSE your salad carefully, but know that in general there is rarely enough in it to fuel your body correctly, that’s why I prefer to take one as a side as I know it will be low quantities 😅🥗
Look at these orbulent little beauties, teasingly luscious as they lie, waiting for you to dive in. Tear-shaped to mimic the visceral response one has when one gently covers their chorizo, steak, and chicken in these dressings at Hachioji's Peruvian restaurant. A mustard-y warm curried concoction, a fresh, crunchy, biting pesto of sorts like a mouthful of garden, and a fragrant, tangy cream to cut through animal fats. One by one or melodied together, the wonderful staff advise the best to use with each dish. I wish I had more pictures of this meal, but it was something like seven courses and so mind-blowing I didn't want to pick up my phone and interrupt the experience. #dressings #sauces #peruvianfood #hachioji #japanesefood

These condiments are great on the side of curries and kitchari, but can even be used to dress up baked potatoes or veggies - instead of the plain, usual sour cream. Turmeric Saffron Yogurt, Mint-Cilantro Coconut-Lime Chutney & Tahini.
Yogurt ~ tempered saffron, added small dash of turmeric and cardamom
Chutney ~ Coconut flesh, freshly squeezed lime, fresh mint and cilantro - blend/process
Tahini ~ grind sesame seeds (roasted or plain), add oil if need
