food_play - MAHI MAHI ON QUINOA-LENTIL-PEA MEDLEY WITH PAPRIKA-ASPARAGUS by Annabelle Guldner

This was a spontaneous adventure of fridge and pantry hunting. We prepared some quinoa with black sesame seeds as a base. In a different pan black, green and pink lentils and peas were cooked and seasoned with fresh garlic, nutritional yeast and pepper. Zucchinis and mushroom were added to the mixture along with a balsamic reduction and fresh lemon juice. The mahi mahi was placed on the quinoa and steamed for 5-8 minutes. Almonds were roasted for a nutty flavor and sprinkled over the lentil medley. The fish was served over the quinoa and lentils and finished off with a little bit of truffle oil. The asparagus was grilled with paprika and cayenne pepper and arranged around the dish. Voila! Delicious!

Black paper, some white chalk and you can go to town with wherever the wind blows you.

I took a little break from computer work to recharge my mind, relax my eyes, not think and simply enjoy myself. It's a great way to let go and occupy your mind by not occupying it. And you walk away with a little piece of art that can lighten up your day and embellish any space... #design #creativeoutlet #art#chalk  #repurpose #reuse #artplay #therapy#colors #pattern #interiordesign #artist #play#fun #artproject #sustainable #playful#creativity #unique #colorscheme#designisfun #artanddesign #quality#craftsmanship #enjoylife #wellbeing #health#sane #happiness

RECHARGE YOUR MIND
Sometimes you need a break. Getting busy with your hands is a great way to take your mind off things and let your brain recharge.

I recycle, upcycle and reuse anything and get pleasure from creating something fresh and new. Little projects like that keep your hands busy to free your mind but they won't feel like work, and most of all you do it for you!

Being creatively engaged has shown to be one of the most effective ways to stay productive and content!
