I really love to boil equal parts of rice, buckwheat and quinoa and to have them ready. I put them in jars in the refrigerator. Before eating them, I put different things, so I have different meal.
Since I stopped adding salt to my food, I fell real taste of the food. I can eat just boiled rice without adding anything. The thing is not just “I can”, it’s delicious for me 🙂 I guess it’s because I also don’t eat white sugar. When you stop to eat salty and sweet food, the taste changes and gets stronger.
This is 400 g (raw weighted) combination of buckwheat, rice (and quinoa – I didn’t have quinoa, but usually I boil them all together). I separate the food to 4 equal portions, which wait to be flavored or to be eaten just like this. When I am very hungry I eat 1 portion, when I am not I eat 1/2 portion.
I usually eat 1/2 portion, if I am too late for my workout. I love to work out on an empty stomach, but not immediately after I wake up. In the morning I drink coffee and work for 2-3 hours. After that I shoot workouts. But if I stray in to the work longer, I eat 1/2 portion and wait at least 1-2 hours, so I can work out. If I eat something cooked in the ordinary way – I can’t work out after the meal, at least for 4-5-6 hours.
I want to clarify that I don’t eat this every day. Or sooner, I eat the prepared amount of food while I am done with all. I eat it on one of my daily meals for some days. After that, I prepare something else for some days. So, I cook only for dinner, for brunch I cook for 4-5-6 days 🙂 .
Also, even if I have prepared rice-buckwheat-quinoa, if I want to eat something else, I do it. I.E. I don’t make myself to eat something just because I have to or it has to be this way. I eat what I want, when I want and as much as I want. In this way, I don’t think about food, I am full and pleased. If I want to burn body fat, I will follow this principle, but I will eat less food.
Variant 1 – salty, “cooked”
I add to the boiled, cold rice-buckwheat-quinoa some tablespoons of sauce Arrabbiata, De cecco, 1-2 tablespoons chopped olive oils. I mix all together and eat. It takes me 30 seconds 🙂 and is sooo delicious.
I don’t like really cooked vegetables and this is the only sauce that doesn’t taste cooked. There is added little fat and sugar 🙁 . I take it from the local store.
Here, I added green beans.
Variant 2 – sweet
I shred an apple, add lemon juice, pinch of lemon peel, cinnamon and rice-buckwheat-quinoa.
It tastes like ashure 🙂 It’s also delicious with tahini, walnuts. With a banana also.
Variant 3 – salty, “raw”
I chop tomatoes, cucumbers, rucola and whatever green I have, I add rice-buckwheat-quinoa. Sometimes I add vinegar, sometimes I don’t. I have very delicious apple cider vinegar.
