When you are desperate and are looking for something under 30.

Ok. What I meant was, When you are desperately hungry and need to eat something in 30 minutes.

As far as possible, I’ve steered clear from fast food. In addition to that, since I have watched Supersize Me, I have developed an allergy to fast food, simply because I have grotesque images of my liver failing on me. I still however still indulge in the occasional frites, simply because sometimes, nothing beats having something greasy, crunch and tasty. Why do we eat fast food anyway? Why does fast food have to be junk food anyway? At the end of the day, most of us don’t reproduce restaurant type food on an everyday basis, but closer to something Rachael Ray style: keep it simple, keep it delicious and keep it fast. This is a quick and easy dish that I tried making this week, and it tasted like body-temple food, cleansing and refreshing.

It looks lovely! Just for that for someone of my appetite, the pretty salad would be gone in two bites and then I would be hungry again :(
