Recept: rijst met aubergine en snijbiet

Snijbietrood

Ingrediënten

(voor 2 personen)
- 100 gram rijst, gekookt en afgekoeld
- 1 aubergine, in blokjes
- halve courgette, in blokjes
-1 ui, in ringen
- 1 teen knoflook
- flinke berg snijbiet, gewassen en in stukken gescheurd
- flinke scheut frituur
- zout, peper
- paprikapoeder, chilipeper
- ketchup
- 1 eetlepel gistvlokken

Bereiding

Verhit de olie in een ruime koekepan. (Normaal gebruik ik olijfolie maar frituurolie kan beter tegen hoge temperaturen. Het bakken van aubergines lukt het best in ruim olie die goed heet is.)
Bak hierin de aubergineblokjes tot ze gaar zijn. Schep ze regelmatig om om te voorkomen dat ze aanbranden.

Als de aubergine zacht en gaar is voeg dan de courgette en de ui toe. Blijven roeren.
Na een paar minuten de rijst, kruiden en knoflook toevoegen. Het vuur blijft al die tijd hoog en om aanbranden te voorkomen moet er telkens geroerd worden.

De ketchup erdoor mengen.

Op het laatst de snijbiet in porties toevoegen. (In één keer 'past' dit waarschijnlijk niet, maar snijbiet krimpt snel, zodat de rest er zeker bij kan.)
Naar smaak gistvlokken eroverheen strooien.

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

categorieën: films, Gezondheid algemeen, Over gewicht

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.


With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.


While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it's at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.


What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection.
Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
