Fitness Challenge Day 60


Day 60 Breakfast at 9 am (above):
A colorful spread to celebrate 60 days! Dinuguan, Greens, Black coffee, Pork afritada, Sunny side-up egg with catsup, Ripe mangoes and Blue rice.


How Blue Rice is Made

A forum participant, James, asked where blue rice is purchased.

Answer: It isn't. I mean it isn't purchased as blue rice. Ordinary white rice may be colored blue during cooking. This is made possible with the flowers of the Blue Butterfly Pea plant (Clitoria ternatea) which is a common pea vegetable plant. Ilocanos call it Samsampin or Samsamping. The young pea pods are cooked as vegetables while the flowers can be made into tea. Both parts are edible.

To prepare: Wash rice as usual. Add water as usual. Drop the flowers (around 5 to 10) depending on the shade you want. Cover and then cook the rice as usual. Once the rice is cooked, you may opt to remove the flowers. The cooked rice will be colored blue.

Black coffee, Simple cheese sandwich with mayo and greens and Fresh guavas.

It's day 60 today. I gave myself a bit of a leeway (as I oftentimes do!) by making my protocol 20:4 just to celebrate the milestone. Thank you neighbors, for the mangoes and guavas.
