Day #3 amuse-bouche time! 🥂 tandoori turkey roulade (find the recipe on my blog in bio ⬆️) .
here there are, my favourite things to cook ❤️, the amuse-bouche (literally it means entertainment for your mouth). i love them firstly because it means a lot of fun creating in my kitchen. but then also because they create such a joy when you serve them to your guest. everyone can find their happiness in them as they can choose to eat what they like. these little tapas are also such a pleasure to look at as they are tiny and pretty.
i recently created this board for a special event (i might tell you more about it in a few months...). i will share with you one recipe a day for the next 6 days.
today is going to be about this little tandoori turkey roulade. i agree with you it is small in size but it is so grand in flavour and so good for you (health benefits details below the recipe, check it out)! i don't eat meat (originally more because i have never really liked it) but i try to taste what i cook to make sure it is good for my guests and to be able to describe the feelings it gives you when you will cook it and share with your friend. thanks to the marinade, the resting time and the medium heat oven cooking, this little mouthful melts in your mouth delivering subtle flavours of the softness of the coconut milk, the aroma of the tandoori spices, and the freshness of the coriander leaves. i serve it here as a tapas but you could totally use this recipe to serve the entire roulade on a plate for your guests. you simply need to multiply the amount of meat by 1.5 to 2 per guest (depending on how much your friends and family like to eat). recipe and health benefits on the blog https://www.lacuisinedelulu.com/home/day-3-amuse-bouche-time-tandoori-turkey-roulade
Take time for yourself! you’re not being selfish, you’re taking care of yourself so you can be the best you for everyone else.
whatever that looks like for you. for me it’s working out. i do it because it makes me feel good after (because let’s be honest, during sucks)
so if you’re struggling to find time for yourself, make the time!
today i did 45 minutes of cardio. tomorrow i lift. legsss
“why do i have to go through life in this body?!” in college, i asked this because i hated my body to an unhealthy level. if you’ve been following, you know the story. i found healing.
but you don’t know that 5 years later, i sat in a doctor’s office and was told that my u****s had a birth defect. it was what was causing the miscarriage i was experiencing right then (and a still birth and another miscarriage in the years that followed). i had a higher risk of losing pregnancies, and if i ever went full-term, i’d most likely need a cesarean. i was devastated.
why this body? why?! the foundation i’d made of loving my whole self, no matter what, 5 years earlier kept my self-worth intact through that time. which is good because i had to learn to accept something i could never change, and it was painful.
it’s been over 10 years since that life-altering news. i was blessed with two miracle babies, but that question has still brought me to tears in quiet moments: why this body? i had imagined a much different life than my body could give me.
guess what, you guys? i finally know why. at least in part. i was given this exact body, to learn a lot of lessons: acceptance, perseverance, faith in my higher power’s plan. and also because god knows my heart and had to make his plan for me obvious.
you see, my u****s has a wall right down the middle. my doctor used to call it a duplex. i am divided right down the middle. because i have two paths to walk in this life. one path takes me climbing up waterfalls with my daughter. while the other takes me to a rehab to teach movement.
i wouldn’t have the life i have if i had some other body. the lessons i’ve learned in it have been heart-wrenchingly hard. i wouldn’t change it. i cannot imagine being nearly as happy if everything had gone how i’d planned, if i hadn’t had this exact body.
there are no coincidences. so, friend, please be grateful for your body. it’s the one meant to carry you through your beautiful, crazy life. it will give you the lessons you need to learn. please, just love it. all of it.
This one is for all my friends (male and female) who sometimes struggle to feel sexy/hot/beautiful/strong/worthy/pretty/enough.
pick one physical trait that you love about yourself and focus on that for a minute. instead of thinking about what makes you feel inadequate, what makes you feel empowered?
if you have the guts, i would love to hear what your favorite physical trait is below in a comment: 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
