Just when I was wondering what I could eat!


Half way through my Optifast journey, prior to my operation, I was getting really bored with the ‘shakes, bars and veggies.’ Nothing seemed to taste good until I worked this little gem out. As part of my veggie allowance this is what I made.

Two little ‘balls’ of frozen spinach (I made them myself).

One grated zucchini

One green chilli

A dash of oil (my whole allowance—which was minuscule)

Garlic paste

Ginger paste

Salt, pepper and a teaspoon of garum masala.

Stir-fry the lot and wow!

I most definitely did not feel deprived tonight. It was so tasty that I shall replicate it at my brother’s place on Saturday for all of us. It was Ngaio who told me to use zucchini, bless her.
