Grilled Buffalo Tofu

One night, a very good friend of mine invited me over for dinner. She started discussing the items she was going to grill; Asparagus, marinated chicken, and tofu with buffalo sauce. I admit, I was skeptical. It didnt sound like a very good combination. I like tofu, and I like buffalo sauce on boneless wings, but I had never thought to put buffalo sauce on tofu and grill it. I decided to keep an open mind. So, when I arrived for dinner, I loaded up on the chicken wings and the asparagus and took a couple of pieces of the grilled tofu. I ate a bit of the tofu and was completely surprised! It was delicious, and I daresay, my favorite thing I ate that night. (more…)

Happy Birthday to Me!

My quarter century birthday (or 25th) happened this month and celebrations ensued. I feel so blessed because not only do I get to celebrate my birthday once, I also get to go out with my family, my husband’s family, and my friends. It’s nice to feel loved :). However, the month of May will now be devoted to dieting since basically I ate my way through the entire month of April! (more…)

Blue Moon Mexican Cafe

Chipotle Chicken Burrito

 

I don’t know very many people who don’t like Tex Mex food. Crunchy, cheesy goodness is hard not to like, which is why I was so excited when we stumbled upon the Blue Moon Mexican Cafe in Engelwood, NJ. Not a native to the Engelwood area, I was walking along what seemed to be the main street in town, looking for a place to eat. There were tons of restaurants around, but for some reason the Blue Moon caught my eye. Even from the outside, the restaurant looks festive and welcoming. (more…)

Done with The Daniel Fast

I am finally done with Daniel. I’ve completed the fast. I feel relieved, healthier, and lighter. I didn’t lose as much weight as I expected, but 7.5 lbs in 3 weeks is not bad. Honestly, the first 2 weeks were easier than the 3rd week. This last week was a challenge. I found myself craving bread and meat, tempted to reach for the tortilla chips, and getting lazier in my cooking. It’s hard to cook from scratch every night, and after 2 failed dinner attempts, I almost called it quits. I’ve decided that I should stick to eating Indian food, and avoid cooking it. I still can’t figure out what I did wrong, and I’m blaming it on the Garam Masala I bought at the store. (more…)

Eating more Kale

I’m a “cooking with Kale virgin”. The only time I’ve really eaten Kale is out at a restaurant or if someone else happens to cook it for me. It’s not that I don’t like it. I totally like it. It’s just that I’m never quite sure how to cook it. Kale is one of those vegetables you have to cook right or it can turn out tasting completely awful and bitter (same as Broccoli Rabe, which I still have not figured out how to cook with). (more…)

Veggie Paella

It’s Day 9 of the Daniel fast and I’ve found my favorite recipe thus far! Veggie Paella. I would totally eat this even if I weren’t doing the fast. It is so good and unbelievably easy. Non-vegetarians could add chicken, sausage, shrimp (or basically any meat) to this dish and it would be delicious but it is very tasty as it is. It’s a very colorful dish too!
