This dish was really delicious. It was refreshing, filling, healthy and satisfying. This pasta salad (salad pasta) was made for the very hot and humid days of summer. The salad dressing, and in effect the pasta sauce, used was an onion salad dressing.

I love bitter gourd because of its taste, and that includes and most specially its bitterness. So I usually don’t like it when somebody tries to do something that impacts this aspect of the vegetable. Unfortunately, chef added honey to this sautéed dish which made it a little bit sweet.

This 30-day challenge isn’t even done yet and we found ourselves last night thinking of other experiments we can do for the succeeding months. Maybe a 30-day challenge about learning how to play the keyboard or the guitar, all for the purpose of self improvement. We’ll see. But on to the food.

A simple egg omelette breakfast with sauted beans and danish bread on the side.

Day 2 and I have yet to experience any meat-longing sensations, thus far.
I would consider this breakfast delicious, regardless of my current 30-day trial vegetarian status. The Java rice, that’s what we’re calling it from now on, is just rice with turmeric mixed in it, which gave it that colour and additional flavour.
