Food Items for Healthy Lunch - Make Your Colleagues Jealous with these Mouth-watering Meals.

Posted in: , , ,

While working in an office for years, my excitement for lunch was almost over. The reason behind that is my company canteen never changes their lunch menu. I've had the same lunch (rice and chicken) for almost 1 year. Then the major problem started, when you eat heavy dishes like this, you end up feeling sleepy during the working hours. So I decided that this was the last time I'd ever eat in my office canteen.

Snack Hack – How To Make Homemade Protein Bars

Posted in: , , , ,

Healthy snack bars are all the rage these days. Young and old consume them because they provide a good boost of energy and other dietary essentials very easily. Likewise, people love them because you just pop them in your bag or slip them in your pocket and you have food that can actually sustain you for a long time.

Some say they get their recommended natural fibres from these snack bars as well; they can do without preparing elaborate meals with vegetables and other fibre-rich ingredients which are essential for regular elimination.

Recipe For Flat Akara With Beans Flour [#Pankara or #Moinmoinlette]

Posted in: , ,

Idea from #moinmoinlette @dooneyskitchen or Pankara by +9jafoodie. I've been following both food bloggers above on social media and their adventures in the kitchen keep reminding me of my homec practicals days, yes I did home economics in secondary school, up to SS3. In my school I took the elective called Food and Nutrition in which I scored A1 in WAEC! LOL...

Anyways, with getting older and trying to keep down my weight and remain healthy, I hardly eat akara though it's something I used to love. So I liked the idea of getting an Akara taste without the deep fried oil. In this recipe, the finished texture and taste was between akara and moin-moin. It had depth so I covered it with foil to get the insides cooked through. I also added onions and tomatoes but no other vegs. See all ingredients and process below...

What Many Mums Look For In Dessert Recipes

Posted in: , , ,

Many mums would agree that menu planning could at times be as complicated as rocket science. If they could squeeze it in the monthly budget, they would gladly hire a think tank to work through the different factors to be considered (individual preferences, sensitivities, cost, etc.) and come up with a menu that will work.

Such mums are not particularly demanding. They don’t require a menu so perfect that it would inspire publications for a feature story. They just want something that will sufficiently nourish the family without garnering complaints or wastage.

Creative Catering - How To Find The Perfect Menu For Your Wedding

Posted in: , , ,

By Helen Wallis

If there’s one element of your wedding that your guests will remember it’s the food. Along with the location, décor style and music, the catering will define the event. Cuisine gives you the opportunity to really show off your creativity; and if successful, will leave an ever-lasting impression on your guests.

Contemporary couples are fortunate to have many creative catering options at their fingertips; gone are the days when wedding caterers only served standard “banquet hall” fare that was more or less the same for each reception.

Due to a proliferation of cookbooks, food blogs and network shows about food available 24 hours a day, today’s brides and grooms are more knowledgeable about food than those in generation past. Caterers have responded and couples should have no problem finding a caterer who thinks and cooks creatively and who can offer unique suggestions based on the couple’s preferences.

Below are a few categories to get you thinking about how to make your wedding food fun, different and delicious!
