Have I told you about my first treadmill? It happened soon after I came to Bahrain after marriage. After getting introduced to the life style here, I understood why all those people returning from Gulf were abundantly blessed with horizontal prosperity. So I decided the best way to not to be lured by the Goddess of horizontal prosperity is to exercise. But there was a small problem, there was no gym in our then apartment and since I was new here, I didn't have driving license. Treadmill sounded like a good idea, you can do exercise at home whenever you want.
Convincing Jose was the next step. Honestly it kinda was easy, after all we were newly married at that time, love was blinding in all its glory ;) So one weekend, we went to the mall. Checked out diff models. Seeing the prices, I had a second thought. It was expensive compared to the budget we had in mind. We just furnished our apartment from A-Z, took a trip also, so spending on treadmill felt like an indulgence. That's when I happened to see a low priced treadmill in a corner. I was curious to find out why it's priced less compared to others. Well, it turned out to be manual treadmill.
After doing a list of pros and cons in my head, I said I'm ok with manual treadmill. Jose wasn't too keen about it. He was asking me to wait for a month or so and then we will get the electronic one. I was on a mission to start exercising the next minute, if possible, so long story short, we went home with a manual treadmill. After first day of exercising itself, I realised it wasn't a good idea. Since I wasnt willing to prove myself wrong before Jose, I continued doing it for 1 week. After that, it became a clothes hanger ;)
I told you this story as a background, to give you an idea about my crazy phases in life. It happens every now and then, but luckily as the years have passed, I'm getting obsessed with less expensive things. May be, I'm becoming wiser!
So sometime ago, I was on my “green phase”. Suddenly it occurred to me that we are not having enough greens and that's how I ended up with the idea of green smoothie. I searched and searched for green smoothie recipes, finally zeroed in on one. I told Jose also, that we are going in for a green week with all the green stuff. Jose, being least blinded with love these days, declared then n there itself, that he doesn't want any part of it.
Yet again, I was determined. I went and bought all organic green things required to make smoothie, but as usual I never made smoothie. This phase went or for sometime, and that's when this recipe happened. I finally reached a conclusion, you dont have to drink a green smoothie to get the green dosage, you can eat green Kababs too.
That's how this recipe happened. I've tried this kabab from certain restaurants and liked it. Also, I was on a look out for some healthy veg starter / appetiser recipes. This worked out well. It's very easy to make, comparatively healthy and the flavour is really good. You dont have to compromise the taste to get your dose of greens, now, that's a good deal, right?
