Clean eating … Quinoa … Watercress salad… Grilled steak.. I bet you thought I don’t eat amazing food..
Gluten free idea for all the people watching their health
I used the same recipe my mum used for veggie rice to prepare the quinoa – made 1/2 the recipe for 1 cup quinoa ..
Sauté an onion, in olive oil with a bay leaf
I used a non stick pot, so essentially it was just 1 teaspoon olive oil
Add a chopped or grated tomato once the onion is beginning to brown
Season with a teaspoon of crushed garlic and salt. I used Himalayan pink salt
Once the tomato is cooked (i.e the water separates) add the quinoa/rice
And boiling water (ratio is 1:2 – I.e 1 cup quinoa/rice to 2 cups water)
Allow to simmer and once 1/2 the water has dried, add veggies to your liking and steam until done
Black beans from a can
Shredded spinach leaves
Check the salt and serve with your favorite protein and a salad

The story of my dinner tonight

Here is what transpired
Pot 1 – boil 3 eggs
Fryer – fry 2 potatoes in cubes
Pot 2 – bring to the boil 1 and a half cup of the best basmati rice u have with lots of water.. 1 cinnamon stick and one star anise for exactly 8 mins – rinse in cold water set aside
Pot 3 – sauté 1 large finely sliced onion, jeeru seeds, cinnamon stick and 3 curry leaves til dark brown.. Add a few whole chillies .. Let it just turn brown
Add the mince.. 1 tablespoon of red ginger garlic Mix and salt.. Allow to cook til there’s no pink left
Add 3 grated tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon Arad (Tumeric)
1 teaspoon Dhana powder
1 teaspoon jeeru powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Once the tomato separates.. Turn off the heat
Add 4 heaped tablespoons of plain yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
In a small frying pan, brown 1/4 sliced onion with a cinnamon stick.. Star anise.. U may add elachi..(I didn’t).. And some more curry leaves
Let it brown nicely and set aside
In 1 cup of boiling water, dissolve a generous pinch of saffron

Cover well with the remaining rice
Scatter the fried onions

The verdict from my 8 year old
I love staying here just to do mattress runs for points now and again (especially when there’s a double and triple points promo).
I always got an upgrade to an Executive Deluxe Room, as this hotel is almost always fully booked.
First time staying with my Hilton Diamond elite status and, boy was I treated to luxury ..
Price of the suite
Perks at check out
That’s a 1 night stay at Cat1 Hilton on points..
Would I stay again? Yes.. I have already booked another room
Hilton diamond is amazing
Just chat to Zaheer on firstname.lastname@example.org for further info
Ps. The manager sent this email after I checked out. The joys of royalty treatment
The best perk can be summarized as :
“airberlin together with its airline partners operates 3,500 planes to over 1,000 destinations in over 150 countries around the world. Enjoy the benefits gained from being a Status Card holder and from the route networks of airberlin, NIKI, Etihad Airways’ airline partners and 15 oneworld® alliance partners – such as British Airways, American Airlines, Iberia, Finnair, Qantas and many more.”
This card was status matched through my existing Star Alliance gold as promoted by Traveloyalty – so yes I paid zilch. Nothing. Nada.
A Gold card on airberlin will cost you at least SIXTY (60) flights a year..
Perks include double and triple miles. As well as VIP lounge access. One world is the Qatar airways loyalty program.
Average flight Johannesburg to Qatar is Zar 9800. So this card would be equivalent to just under ZAR 600 000 spend (USD 35000).
