NEW YEAR, NEW RECIPES W/ NYE LEFTOVERS :)

by Alex - Project Lady

These next few days, you will open the fridge and find leftovers from the New Year’s Eve.

They are not enough for a meal by themselves and they give the “I am eating the leftovers” feeling if you try to eat them from the tiny plastic cups 🙂

So get them all out and create a masterpiece with them…

  • If you have any kind of meat pick the red meat (beef,lamb etc). If there is fish left, do not use it.
  • Poultry? Smell it first. If it is good, you can use it the next day.
  • Beef/lamb, if you immediately put the leftovers in the freezer, you can use it for the next 2 days.
  • Look out for the cooked or raw vegetables. If you did not put lemon/vinegar in them last night, you can use them for 2 days.
  • Potatoes/potato salad etc. is not recommended to be eaten as a leftover. Mashed potatoes, if you used cream or milk in it, should not be eaten either.
  • So, pick a kind of meat from the leftovers (you can use lamb/beef or paultry, but not together) and heat them a little with the leftover veggies. If you have fresh salad left (and without vinegar/lemon from previous day) you can add the salad to the plate after heating. Do not heat the salad 🙂
  • Lastly, you will need a nice and healthy sauce

That will be very easy. I do not recommend using leftover sauces as they mostly include vinegar/lemon/mayonnaise etc which should be eaten right away. Always prepare sauces fresh!

Instead, use one or more of my recipes, which go well with both white and red meat.

Very healthy sauce recipes for New Year’s Eve leftovers (based on 1 plate of meal)

1. Yellow sauce of Alex

An acidic sauce which goes well with veggies & fresh green salads

1 tablespoon of

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Black cumin oil
  • Fresh Lemon juice

1 teaspoon of

  • Basil (fresh or dried)
  • Turmeric powder

2. White sauce of Alex

Goes well with carbs like pasta, rice etc (Unless you have leaky-gut)

Goes well with veggies and poultry either.

2 tablespoons of

  • yoghurt

1 tablespoon of

  • Black cumin oil or olive oil
  • Mint (dried)

3. Red sauce of Alex 

Goes really good with red meat

1 tablespoon of

  • Black cumin oil or olive oil
  • Pomegranate mollases

1 teaspoon of

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Basil (dried)
  • Ginger (powder or freshly mashed)

4. Black sauce of Alex

Goes well with red meat and fresh green salad

1 tablespoon of

  • Black cumin oil or olive oil
  • Pomegranate mollases
  • Black cumin (powder)

1 teaspoon of

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Basil (dried)

5. Sweet fruity sauce of Alex 

Goes well with leftover deserts. Gives creamy taste and removes dryness of leftover cakes.

1 or 2 tablespoons of:

  • Yoghurt
  • Red/blue berries, cherries, mashed pumpkins, sliced or mashed bananas etc. (If you have leaky gut, use very little fruit). You can boil them with little water in a small pot or use direcly. If you cook them with little water they will have more taste.

1 teaspoon of

  • Mint leaves (dried)
  • Lemon juice (fresh)
  • Coconut oil

Important tips & notes:

  • No milk, cream, mayonaisse, ketchup, mustard, cheese should be included. If you want to add cheese, add little and use goat cheese.
  • Do not use diet or low-fat yoghurt. They taste like nothing and the fat in yoghurt is not bad fat. Eat it 🙂
  • Use black cumin oil with turmeric or curry to replace mustard for red meat
  • Use yoghurt with black cumin oil to replace cream/mayonnaise
  • Use ginger instead of hot pepper
  • You can add 1 tablespoon of water in the sauces if you are using them on fresh green salad.
  • You can add your favorite seasonings
  • If you must (I don’t use any), you can add salt (maximum 1 teaspoon)
  • Use coconut oil for deserts and black cumin or olive oil for meals/salads. No other is accepted…
  • If you can, use probiotic yoghurt
  • You can use more of yoghurt but not more of oil 🙂

Do not waste the leftovers, with little effort you can make a nice meal with them today 🙂
