Pink bling-thing in the city or I was born this way

Of Glendale…
Or what not to wear at a job interview…
Supposedly for a creative,self-standing entrepreneurial kind of job…
Which required a no jeans,smart attire…
And apparently reading from a script
So there for the creative spirit and input…
Needless to say, I didn’t get the job and felt as useless as an ashtray on a motorbike,just standing there, being me…
Being you is not so highly rated at a certain circles…
Then again,I was born this way!
Meanwhile the other candidates showed up in jeans!!Even though the instructions were not to.
So they got the job.
And I got a nice day,horsing pinking around in the city.
Ce la vie, as they say…

Horsing around in pink

Horsing around in pink

Bow your face in shame,you naughty boy…Showing off in the middle of a serious business district…Anatomically correct too.In the middle of the day!!!

The spirit of pink

Pink above the highway

They say, if you stand long enough on the bridge,the body of your enemy will  float drive past…Eventually…Still waiting…

Go-to-fitness meal for a dollar or bang for the buck

Yes,you can have it all.For dinner.
High protein,low-carb,delicious,nutritious chicken amaze-burger with cauliflower ”rice”.Paleo too.
For a dollar!!!

Chicken amaze-burgers with cauliflower rice

Chicken amaze-burgers with cauliflower rice

My biggest challenge lately is keep my level of fitness and killer nutrition on a shoe string budget.You don’t have to resort to eating junk, just because is cheaper and more convenient in a times.Rough financial times call for even better eating habits,since you need all the vital energy for overcoming the temporary curve balls life trows every now and then.So I quickly became somewhat of a whiz-cuisine-whip-it-for a dollar chef-cook.All you need is research and maths.And imagination.As you can see, fitness meal doesn’t have to mean expensive protein bars,shakes,man made in a lab concoctions with sky high prices.
I like to keep it simple.Primal.Essential.
No bull.For a dollar.

Here is the breakdown of my shopping list for this dinner
0.20 cents cauliflower !                 1 cauliflower head head-1 $ -my local grocery store- yields 5 portions
0.40 cents minced chicken –        1 lb minced 2.78 $ local grocery store-yields 7 portions
0.10 cents worth of onion –           3 big bunches spring onions – 1 $ local grocery store-yields 10 portions for different uses
0.10 cents worth of cillantro-       4 bunches cillantro – 1 $ local grocery store-yields many portions for future uses
0.20 cents 2 eggs
2-4 tbsp old fashioned oats

Total $ 1 per portion.Bang for the buck!

JAN-012

FOOD-049

After

On the right is my cauliflower rice with turmeric.
Easy breazy to make,low carb,low calorie and tasty,even for anti-cauliflower-er like me.I never liked the stuff.Till this concoction came out.
In a powerful blender toss the roughly chopped cauliflower and pulse till grain consistence.
Heat some coconut oil and fry some spring onions with salt,pepper,turmeric,cayenne.
Add the cauliflower rice, and stir fry for 10 min or so.At the end add more chopped cilantro for taste.

Serve with some chopped veggies,like tomatoes,or cucumber.
Easy.Breazy.For a dollar.
Now that’s a true dollar value meal.

Then added my own bejeweled yellow belt and matching bejeweled straps.
Unfortunately,the day before I got bitten on the beach by a shit fly and my left foot started to swell from an allergic reaction,so I had to wear this walking,sensible sandals, instead of my hip yellow and green heels.Totally un-matching, I know.Damn you,Shit fly.Boo-hoo for me.

Also added my ever present big yellow flower on my head.
