Creative Ajay's Kitchen on Instagram
By Alecia James Monday, December 28th, 2015
I'm totally excited to share my latest labor of love. It is @creativeajayskitchen on Instagram, a new space where I share the outcome of my culinary trials and experiments happening right in my kitchen. It's been a month now since I started this page and I can't wait to cook dinner in the evenings and snap tons of pictures. Any food blogger will tell you that nothing is consumed until you get the winning shot.
What can you expect in Creative Ajay's Kitchen?
I'm obsessed with color, so like my makeup, you'll find the most colorful food combinations where you'll see lots of reds, greens, yellows, oranges and even purple.
But fundamentally, I believe that food should be unadulterated and free of extraneous processed ingredients. So, I utilize whole and natural ingredients in my dishes which gives me the ability to be actively involved in my nutritional intake. Your body is your temple folks, you gotta treat it right.
For the most part, what I share on @creativeajayskitchen are really a lot of my dinner ideas, spanning from spicy and flavorful Jamaican dishes like Ackee & Saltfish, to my numerous encounters with a good cut of T-bone or Porterhouse steak. Gosh I love steak; but more importantly, red meats are generally rich in iron, a key mineral that I need.
Then there are times when I'm in an all vegan mode and prepare filling dishes from entirely plant based foods. I've discovered that roasting root vegetables as opposed to steaming, evokes an interesting flavor, and somewhat of a charred attribute that I find addictive. That's my go-to method of prepping veggies now.
What about smoothies?
Of course smoothies are a huge hit in Creative Ajay's kitchen. I've already shared some of my smoothie recipes here and here, where I transform fruits and veggies into a tasty liquid meal.
So yes, I've been MIA but for good reason. I'm so encouraged by the love and kind words I've received so far. So continue to follow my journey as I unfold new layers of creativity each day, and fully immerse in the wonderful world called f o o d.
Until next time, BE BOLD. BE ALLURING. BE DIFFERENT!
