Eat Healthy Meals That Taste Good!

Need or want to eat meals that are healthy, but find that most do not have much taste? Would you like to actually eat a meal that is healthy and has taste?

I recently came across this blog, Healthy Yet Yummy Food - For Healthy, Delicious And Quick Meal Recipes that seem to be bursting with flavor!

Recipes like, Chili Crab, Hawaiian stir-fried tempeh, Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa, just to name a few, plus many more.

The following recipe is one I really can't wait to try:
Spiced Coconut Fish-Serves 4

Ingredients :
500 g Fish fillets
1/2 cup Desiccated coconut
3/4 cup Hot water
1 clove Garlic
12 mm Fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon Ground kencur (aromatic ginger)
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
1 teaspoon Ground coriander
1 teaspoon Garam masala
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 tablespoons Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh coriander leaves
Banana leaves
Aluminum foil

Method :
Wash, clean and scale fillets and cut into approximately 10 cm lengths.
Blend together, at high speed, the coconut, hot water, garlic, ginger, kencur, cumin, coriander, garam masala and salt until coconut is very finely ground.
Mix in lemon juice and coriander leaves.
Put equivalent of 1 fillet of fish on each piece of banana leaf placed on square of foil.
Spoon 2-3 teaspoons of coconut mixture on fish.
Wrap leaf over, make a parcel of foil, steam for 15 minutes.
Serve hot.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it! This blog a visit, I'm sure you will find a recipe you like! Feel free to leave your comments!

Rising Cost of Food And Gas

I know I normally post recipes, but I just had to give my two cents worth on the rising cost of gas and food.

With gas prices rising, so are our food costs. It is getting to where people are having to choose between putting gas in their car, or eating. That is really sad, and something really needs to be done soon.

Imagine a single parent raising children on their own. Some only make minimum wage, have to pay a baby sitter, put gas in their car to get to work, and put food on the table. For many that is becoming a overwhelming task. Also anyone living on a low fixed income.

I think we are going to start seeing a lot more gas theft, people standing in front of gas stations asking for gas or money, more people turning to food stamps, and welfare, because they just can't make it on what they recieve monthly. There is just too much month at the end of the money for a lot of people. How is the higher price of gas helping anyone?

I would love to hear comments on this issue. You opinions would be greatly appreciated.
