I discovered my favorite breakfast and I feel like Will Farrel as Elf….
Whenever I have it I behave like that. Which makes me think, is it just me or does everyone play their own film in their head?
For example, whenever I’m choosing what to wear, in my head I play the scene from ‘American Gigolo’.
Or when I’m pleased I feel like saying ‘alright, alright’ alright’ Mathew Mcconaughey style.
Whenever I’m dancing, I’m John Travolta in ‘Saturday Night Fever’. People who went dancing with me know exactly what I’m saying, as I like my dance floor to be empty, that’s why usually I’m the first one on it and I come off as soon as it gets crowded.
Or whenever people try to interrupt my lunch break:
I could go on for ages, but let’s concentrate on my favorite breakfast for a moment.
It’s just gorgeous and nutritious. It’s a Chinese type of porridge, and there is no oats in it.
According to Chinese medicine it’s good for anyone who’s concerned with longevity or anyone who wants to darken grey hair, recover from a serious illness, etc. Basically it’s great to strengthen your kidneys.
Black Sesame Porridge:
(from ‘Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen’ by Yuan Wang, Warren Sheir and Mika Ono)
4 tbsp black, toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup brown short-grain rice
1 1/2 cup water
pinch of salt
1 tbsp honey
goji berries, any fresh fruit you like
1. In a food processor grind sesame seeds and rice as finely as possible.
2.In a small pot bring water to boil then add rice mixture stirring so it won’t clump. Add salt to taste (can be omit).
3. Lower the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked. Pop the mixture into a food processor again and whir until creamy.
4. Add honey to taste. Serve with rice milk and fruit.
I usually cook big batch of rice and sesame seeds, keep it in a fridge and warm up with rice milk whenever I want to.
