I finally went to Tj’s!!! I haven’t gone there for over a month because my parents like to go to chinese markets instead. Summer is here and I crave more and more fresh veggies! So here’s what I got!
simply by looking at them makes me a happy girl!!!
Kale, tofu and tomatoes to make the spicy salad
romaine, celery, cucumber, green pepper, carrots, apple and lemon to make morning juice
Let me present you my favorite summer cucumber salad. It’s fresh, tasty and super easy to make!
What you need: cucumber either japanese or this one, I believe it’s called european cucumber?; salt, garlic, rice vinegar and sesame oil
1. Peel and cut cucumber in slices. Add 1 tbsp of sea salt and massage it
Let it sit for 15-20 min. Meanwhile, mince garlic
you’ll see that after 15-20 min, it releases some liquid. Get rid of this, you don’t want to consumer 1 tbsp worth of sodium!
add the rest of the ingredients, minced garlic, 1-2 tbsp rice vinegar and 1/2-1 tbsp sesame oil. Mix well and serve.
I also make a sauteed water chestnut with chinese pickles and sesame oil
all served with oatmeal porridge. This has been my last week favorite dinner combo.
I promised to do a video about my current skin routine. I’m working on it (in the process of learning imovie). Be patient with me!
Just a teaser… look this sephora haul!
