Gastronomic shopping list for March: sour-milk products, citrus fruits, liver, mushrooms, porridge, fish
In March, the situation with products becomes significantly better, at least in comparison with February.
Although also far from the luxury of summer and autumn.
Although what now, is there something?!
We decided to choose from the products sold in every supermarket and in any market, the most interesting — interesting in all possible ways, from culinary to medical.
If you believe the Indian traditional dietetics, now should be heavily consumed sour-milk products, citrus and everything that improves blood quality.
And if you think about the impending beach season (and women, for example, always remember such things), it will become obvious that it would be nice to lose a couple of kilos.
In principle, already enough to make a shopping list.
Cottage cheese, sour cream, cream, kefir, yogurt — see how much everything. Choose fat content and acidity to your liking.
Eat these foods at least for breakfast, at least for dinner (although doctors say that dinner is healthier because it is better absorbed), and as part of dishes of varying degrees of complexity. Cheese cakes with sour cream or cheesecake with yogurt, milkshake with dried fruits or kefir soup tarator. We believe that all this is delicious.
In addition, if you at least partially replace mayonnaise with sour cream or yogurt in your favorite salad, its calorie content will somewhat decrease — but agree that it is better to lose weight a little bit and without tension than in two sizes at once and in the style of a cavalry attack.
Lemons, oranges, tangerines and their annually emerging hybrids are another must have of March. It is necessary to mention hybrids because there is no other family in nature, different representatives of which would interbreed with each other so willingly.
The results of this orgy appear regularly in stores, and we advise them to buy on a mandatory basis. Citrus You can, of course, just eat, or in a variety of ways to cook. The simplest is to cook from lemons natural lemonade.
Wash a lemon, cut it across thin circles, put in a jug.
Pour sugar in the necessary for you, but a reasonable amount. After some time, the sugar will absorb lemon juice and then dissolve. Pour into the jug drinking water, plain or carbonated, and stir until lemon syrup is completely dissolved.
One lemon and four or five tablespoons of sugar is enough to make one and a half liters of excellent narral lemonade — it seems to be an excellent reason to never again buy sweet synthetic pop in the store.
Now about human blood. Useful for its composition products do not count.
The most effective of them is beef liver (and better calfskin, it tastes better) lamb, pork, chicken and rabbit.
Buy a kilogram of fresh liver, cut it into pieces «for one bite», removing all films and bile ducts. Take half a pack of softened butter, a bunch of parsley and a clove of garlic, throw in a blender bowl, season with salt and press a button. When the oil, parsley and garlic turn into a roughly chopped mass, release the button.
Heat a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet and place the liver. Fry for 4 minutes, stirring slowly, then add the mass from the blender and stir violently. After 3 minutes, remove from heat and rather eat.
Butter here acts as a catalyst, so do not be afraid that the liver will be damp. Will not be.
Even for the blood is very useful to eat black pudding.
You can buy it in some markets; for all not vouch, but on many.
And if you do not like either one or the other, eat apples.
Also recommend buying a fish.
And on the market, this recommendation is especially relevant for Muscovites.
Pay attention to the crucian carp — they are pretty good in sour cream!
The last, which is impossible not to mention. Eat more porridge. Our ancestors, as they say, in the spring only ate them.
Of course, not least because of Lent. But on the other hand, there was nothing else. And somehow they reached the first greens, on mushrooms and in Greek.
It’s easier now with vegetables, but cereals are still relevant.
A plus, mushrooms, who in March will please anyone.
Do not forget about fresh champignons and shiitake, pickled and salted milk mushrooms, dry white and frozen mushrooms.
