Super Veggie Curry/Chilli

I get very anxious about eating healthy, so when I don’t have the spoons for a real meal (which is… all of the time…) I can’t just eat popcorn or I’ll stress. This recipe base is my solution. I switch out the spices to turn it from “curry” to “chilli” and it will feed me for a week. It’s also soooooo cheap, which s awesome bc I’m broke af

3 Spoons Version

  • ½ a bag mixed frozen veg
  • Can of tomatoes
  • Curry powder/paste OR taco seasoning/cumin+chilli+garlic
  • Splash oil or w/e
  • Rice (I like brown, but it’s good to cycle)
  • Can of legumes of choice
  • OPTIONAL: Onion powder if  you have it
  • OPTIONAL: (gf) Soy sauce or stock powder of you have it (you can’t taste, just adds a nice savoury depth to help with the meatlessness)

Put the rice in a cooker or preferred cooking method. Fry the spices in the oil for like 30 secs, then dump in the veg, tomato, and drained beans and turn the heat down lowish. Simmer until it’s all hot and thick (probs about as long as the rice takes) and serve.

4 or 5 Spoons Version (I find frying onions to be v draining)

    • ½ a bag mixed frozen veg
    • An onion or ½ a cup (ish) frozen diced
    • Can of tomatoes
    • Curry powder/paste OR taco seasoning/cumin+chilli+garlic
    • Splash oil or w/e
    • Rice 
    • Can of legumes of choice OR meat of choice
    • (OPTIONAL) Soy/stock 

Fry onions until brown. Add meat if using. When cooked, ass spiced for 30 secs. Toss in everything else and cook as above.

The curry is nice with plain yoghurt if you have that, and the chilli is nice with cheese and/or sour cream. I like never bother with that though.

Hey guys! I want to share to you the 5s methodology, usually used by companies for workplace organization but what’s good about it are its basic principles which you can actually apply in organizing your study review and habits.


The 5s Methodology

  • Seiri (sort out). Before you dig into the long list of your to-do’s, it’s important that you sort them out first from your major to minor priorities especially the ones on due. Through this, you can avoid cramming over a requirement which you could have done earlier and make sure everything you put in it are conscious and well-thought ideas.
  • Seiton (set). Estimate the amount of time you would need for each task then make a schedule that not just fit your time but also your mental awakeness (you don’t want to pull an all-nighter, only to end up sleep deprived the next morning with a pile of untouched requirements). Make a review setup that your most comfortable with given that it had already help you achieve satisfying results.
  • Seiso (shine). It’s unavoidable to keep your desk always clean and smart but it’s important that you keep it at a tolerable level where it’s not affecting the quality of thinking you’re investing on your tasks. Otherwise, you’ll only end up more stressed and cranky.
  • Seiketsu (standardise). Consistency is important once you already found the setup you are most productive with. In this way, your brain recognizes a pattern that will eventually become your lifestyle. Of course there will be times when you can’t follow it and it’s okay, remind yourself that you are open to adjustments (adjustments, not excuses though).
  • Shitsuke (sustain). Well, if you are doing great then, keep it up. But don’t forget to always aim for the better. I believe that for every strategy, there’s always a need for improvement even it seems to be so perfect.

Hope this helps! Happy studying!
