Tempting! Links to Delish Dishes and Handy Hints.

It is time to tempt you with another Set of Deliciousnesses. Eat your heart out!

But first, do you do yoga? Are you in part of the world that is coming into Spring? Have a look at this post from Yoga for You on how to reduce allergies due to pollen. Just the time of year for building these into your pranayama and asana practices.

Right Brained or Left Brained?

Do you know whether you are Right Brained or Left Brained? Ideally, it is good to be both. Using the right brain for creativity, ideas, relationships between things, insights, intuition.  Using the left brain to bring things to fruition, put ideas into action, plan, execute, make lists. It is fabulous to watch people with strongly balanced Right and Left brains in action. But for most of us, we prefer to use one side over the other. Which are you? Find out using an amazing visual test at What Why How Where. (The good news is, with practice – albeit long practice – you can bring the hemispheres into balance.)

Salads help the 5+2 equation.

Yesterday I wrote about the problem of 5+2 veggies and fruit. Here are some more way to solve that riddle. (If you are in the UK, apparently you only need 5 pieces in total. Think I will shift to the UK.)

Veggies help the 5+2 equation.

Lentils actually count as a veggie in the 2+5 equation.

  • I am on a spinach kick at the moment. I just love that veggie when it is in season! Wait until I post my Aloo Palak recipe – the spinach sauce is so flavoursome and so simple. In the mean time, enjoy Simply Spicy‘s Mixed Dal with Spinach, using my two most favourite dals. Or a chickpea and spinach soup from Siri’s Corner.
  • Then there are oven cooked lentils. Limes and Lycophene has a delish dish that is also a one pot meal! Great at washing up time.
  • I am such a sucker for rasam. Oh my, give me several cups full. Here is a Tomato Rasam, straight from India via The Budding Cook. Followed up by Mysore Rasam, from My Food Blog.
  • And then there is Crumbled Lentils (Parupu Usli). This looks so amazing. From Archana’s Kitchen.

And then there are Pancakes, and some other Yum Things.

    oh, i absolutely endorse strawberry vinaigrette. the berries make it so creamy without oil.

    Can’t wait for the strawberries to appear in Spring.

  2. Ricki says:

    What a great list of amazing dishes ! Do try the parsnip, cauli and bean mash–it’s become one of my very favorites since I first posted about it! (And I think I’m off to gather ingredients for Lemon Fudge–what an amazing idea!) :)

    Hi Ricki, I will! Yes, the fudge sounds terrific.

  3. Susan says:

    That fudge was *so* sweet! And it was very sweet of you to mention it. : }

    It sounds *so* delicious!

  6. Em says:

    Thankyou! Who needs magazines with a delicious browse like this :)

    Hi Em, great that you liked them. Thanks for visiting…

  7. Aparna says:

    I checked out the spinning lady. Turned out I could see the anticlockwise one on and off!:)

    Wow, that is great. it is a great little test, isn’t it. The challenge for you will be to be able to see her moving anticlockwise as much as you see her clockwise. Wouldn’t that be something!?!

  8. wow. you’re like a magazine with all the tips, links and more. thanks ;)

    he he he, it is a bit like that, I suppose.

  9. noobcook says:
