2012, the year of the dragon, is said to be one of immense change for almost everyone. While I'm still an undecided astrologer, always reading the insert but adding a healthy serving of cynicism to the appraisal, the year has started off promisingly.
So with summer still in our midst and the delayed activation of my workout routine (which I supposed to be my change), I have been extra vigilant with my diet. On a normal day, diet-friendly food is horrid. It wreaks of punishment and doesn't ever keep my palate interested.
To attest to my prior statement - I still have 18 of the 20 meal replacement sachets that I bought last year because...well... because I simply couldn't. I love the taste, texture and colour of real food FAR too much, which means that I will probably have to run until my dying or my legs fall off. Which ever comes first.
This salad is something I learned from my old house mate who is obsessed with Thai cuisine. It's a flash fried tender stem broccoli salad with soy and mirin sunflower seeds and feta. It's not just beautiful and crunchy but also delicious.
a hand full of sunflower seeds
1 T soy sauce
2-3 T mirin
1 t olive oil
