Skill Shop #7: Plantain and Mango Yogurt Muesli Parfait

Sometimes life can get a little hectic. It’s funny when good things happen or when you start getting busier, it doesn’t seem to stop. Positive vibes seem to fuel opportunities: someone who is confident, successful and carries that aura on his shoulders will naturally attract other people to want to get to know him/her. Same goes for work the more you are productive and efficient, the more you will look for that same cadence and have your colleagues notice your output.

For times like these, food can sometimes take a back seat as you concentrate on more important issues. Obviously that is a statement i don’t agree with since i believe there is always time for a tasty and healthy lifestyle in your schedule.

Here is a quick and delicious recipe for those very moments. Not only for you but for someone you care about as well, food gifts, are the best, it really shows that you’ve dedicated time and creativity to make that person smile.

Plantain and Mango Yogurt Muesli Parfait

 

Use about 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup of muesli or mixed oats (make sure they are not sweetened) and layer it with some full cream unsweetened yogurt or greek yogurt, and a plantain (boiled), chopped up with 1 whole sliced mango and cooked in a pot with 2 tbs of water, a pinch of salt and a tsp of honey, so that you get a nice jam like consistency. Twist the top of your container back on and your done.

      Nice to see you punctuating properly now. See what I mean about constructive criticism?

      But just to nitpick:

      The same goes for your work; the more productive and efficient you are, the more you will look for that same cadence.

      There, fixed.

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
