      My pleasure, Miaw .

      I've updated my previous posts with links to all of the recipes now. [Except for the stuffed baked potatoes--that was just a bit of leftovers I wanted to eat up. I don't remember entirely what I put in them, but they were a big hit with my father (who is forever nagging me to serve him more potatoes), so I'm sure I will make them again at some point.]

        Paneer looks much less annoying to make then Mozzarella (the only cheese I have
        attempted)... I may have to try that soon >.>

          'rin paneer is super simple to make, requires no specialty ingredients, isn't fussy about the temperature, etc. I use it mostly in curries. But I have also used the curds (without pressing them) to make fresh cheese dumplings (which are super yummy, if not exactly "health food".

              January 5:
              Breakfast: I tried the 5-Spice Rice Pudding with coconut milk, it was really good and very filling!
              Lunch: Chicken + leek ratatouille (because I had some leeks in the fridge and I didn't know what to do with them)
              Dinner: Jambalaya (It's very easy to make and tasty! I prepare the chorizo on the side (I don't eat chorizo and this way my man can see how much he actually wants of it) and I am adding more vegetables!)

                              I have decided to take on the Salad a Day Challenge



                              with the added condition that I will eat a different salad each day for the 30 days of the challenge.
                              I also aim to ensure that I eat a minimum of 30 different vegetables over the course of the month. I will record my vegetables-to-date list here at the bottom of my daily menu posts, as a way to keep track.

                              Day 1 of 31 Vegetables to Date: 14

                              arugula
                              avocado
                              bell peppers
                              carrots
                              chard
                              fennel
                              garlic
                              kale
                              leeks
                              lentils
                              lettuce
                              onions
                              spinach
                              tomato

                              (Possibly there were some additional leafy greens in the mixed greens, but we'll go with this list for now.)

                              This was a pretty good day in terms of eating a variety of different veggies, and I'm off to a good start with my list for the month. But getting the first half of the 30 is always going to be easy. The challenge lies in fleshing out the back end of the list--but I think it should be doable.

                              My Heroic Year of following Canada's Food Guide and DAREBEE's Modern Hero Mealplan has commenced.
