Creamy Tuna Curry with Cauliflower

When I was a kid, we didn’t have a lot of money and my sister and I used to go to a neighbor for lunch. And this neighbor used to make Tuna on a white sauce that had curry added and served it over rice. It became one of our favorite meals.
So sometimes, when I am homesick, or just a bit blue (well dealing with depression will do that) I cook comfort foods that remind me of home. But now with my new healthy eating habits, I have to change the recipes.
So yesterday, I was not feeling great, and there was not a lot in the pantry, as the groceries were delivered later in the evening. Steve said there is Tuna and a light bulb went on in my head. I had to try and make the Tuna Dish gluten and dairy free.
So here is the recipe, I hope you like it.

makes 4 servings
2 cans of Tuna
1tbsp Coconut Oil
1tbsp brown rice flour.
one can of light coconut milk ( I had this in the fridge, so it was thick)
Curry Powder
Salt and Pepper

Heat up the Coconut oil and then add the rice flour. when it has soaked up all the oil add 2-3 tbsp of curry, depending on how hot/spicy you like your food. Then add the coconut milk and whisk out all the clumps. Simmer till it thickens.
I served this over steamed Cauliflower as I don’t do starches in the evening, but you can serve it over rice.

En Guete!!! (as we say in Switzerland)

Wednesday… Kick it in the ass

So today is Wednesday as you probably gathered from the title of this.
I woke up a bit grumpy and then realized it’s Wednesday, I felt tired this morning, I didn’t wanna go to the gym. I think Wednesday also known as day 3, 10, 17 etc. is the hardest day for people to find motivation to go to the gym. Why is that?
Well you did a hard workout on Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday you body yells at you WTF? Stop!!! Leave me alone!!! But don’t listen to it. You are in this for the long haul. You are kicking it in the ass.
I actually went to work ( I print T-shirts among other things) and as I pulled up, my trainer calls me and told me that I can do this. That I can kick Wednesday in the ass. I had also weighed this morning and was up a lb. It’s ok, I looked at it and decided not to sweat it. (pun intended) Cause it’s a number on the scale and not how I feel. So after the pep talk I got, I felt better about Wednesday. It was a good thing I tweeted, that is why he called me.
So I finished work and then went to the gym. I did the whole workout (wasn’t able to do it last week) and I felt good. When I was looking in the mirror, I saw a strong women getting stronger. I was able to see myself for the first time in a very long time and I smiled. My arms feel like pudding and I swear I will have the best triceps ever. But I smiled, cause I liked the person I saw in the mirror. Not what she looked like, but what she represented. And that has been a very long time since that happened.
I am looking at my Gym time as some Therapy as well. I get to dwell on things and think about things and then just let them go with every drop of sweat that is leaving and it feels great.

SO, for all you Wendesday People, GO KICK IT IN THE ASS 🙂
