Hunkar Begendi, so I made it!

(Hunkar Begendi literally translates to “The Sultan liked it”)

Trying to keep to a healthy diet actually needs a lot of forward planning, if not we’re highly likely to bounce to the nearest hawker centre and eat something leaden with MSG and oil.

So today, I spent the day in the kitchen with some meal prep for Jon for the next 2 lunches of the week along with some Blueberry Protein Muffins for a sweet snack throughout the day. Apparently his colleagues ‘help’ him finish up the little snacks I pack for him, so I had to whip up something again today if I want my poor boy to have something to snack on during the day.

Also, these new lunch boxes are really nifty, made everything a lot less messy to pack this time. Even labeling was fun! Had to make some Hunkar Begendi (Turkish Eggplant Puree minus the lamb cubes) because I drove by our favourite Turkish Restaurant this morning and had a hugeee craving for it. It’s basically charred eggplant that is then mashed and simmered with milk and spices and cheese.

Tuesday!

Wednesday!

Done!

All that work and all this will be gone in 2 days? Oh noooooo! Now what do I eat?
