It’s How Good You Want To Be: A Fig Bulgur Salad
There are moments in life you wake up in the morning with a feeling of unease, not even knowing what’s wrong. It’s normal, don’t worry! The best message is that there are moments everything seems to be in order - subjectivly- and you’ll forget the bad days you maybe experienced before.
Before moving to Brussels I was a little worried about my year abroad, about what the future will bring, which people will cross my way. I was sad to leave behind family, friends and my reliable environment in Germany. Even though I went to Chili alone for a highschool year at the age of 16 - it doesn’t matter how fare away you go - it will always be a brave step to quit my comfort zone. But I really love to do it! I can’t say it often enough:
These moments of changement are absolutely the best ones of my personal history. Once I step out of routine I discover new ways to think, to solve problems, to see my life, me, my environment. It’s like connecting pieces of puzzle to a whole big picture and suddenly you see things you haven’t before. Different cultures enrich our knowledge, also give us a reality check of what we should value at home and let you get to know amazing people. I met many of my best friends by travelling and living experiences abroad.
Why do I am telling you this? Well, I just wanted to share my joy of today - not only because it’s “Happy Monday” but also because I want to remember this moment of insight and because I want to encourage to live experiences, to have the guts to change something in life. I love to buy books, non-fiction books as adviser and creative mind, because it helps me to change something I want to improve in a way I haven’t tried before. Actually a friend of mine here in Brussels shares the same “affection” for life-changing books so it’s very enriching to exchange ideas and hints. And finally, while dealing with self-developement and future planning I discover interesting business concepts, assembly new ideas with my educational background to new career opportunities. Have a try to do a step towards wisdom and self-fulfillment! It’s not easy but in all means worthwhile.
And after having done hard work you should calm down, do yourself a favour (because cooking is really a pleasure!):
- 200 g bulgur (buckwheat-bulgur here)
- a handful of cooked chestnuts
- 200 g fresh goat cheese (maybe with herbs)
- 2 handful of mâche salad
- a handful dried figs
- 1 avocado
- (parma ham)
- 3 tbsp nut oil
- 1 EL lemon juice
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- Top the bulgur with water (only thumb high) and cook for about 10 Min.
- Wash salad, chop the rest of the ingredients and prepare the dressing.
- Mix everything and top with parma ham to serve.
