Brain Health Habits Friday with Primed Recipe of Laing and Tuyo Combo

Nourish Your Mind:

Yes, your mind needs the right fuel and needs your body to be hydrated, but your mind needs more than that to flourish. Really nourish your mind and soul by donating your time or money to helping others. Or it can even be as simple as REALLY listening to your loved ones properly, smiling more and seeking ways to help those around you in simple ways.

I personally try and perform Acts of Random Acts of Kindness whenever and wherever possible.

Brain Health Habits Thursday with Primed Recipe of Pressure Cooker Onion and Cabbage with Sardines

Soothe Your Brain

By enjoying Malunggay and/or Camomile Tea you are not only hydrating your body but soothing your mind and body as it is known to alleviate stress.

The sounds of nature, music (not head-banger music) and comedy are also great ways to calm your mind. This is especially so if you are stuck in traffic.

I Love Aussie Hip Hop for Soothing Tunes

My favorite music to listen to is Aussie Hip Hop with Joelistics among my favorites.

Joelistics hip hop

Listen to this cool song here. Or this one from Briggs that mentions the Philippines.

I also love podcasts and find them soothing. Please see an example of a great podcast to listen to here and with my Primed mate Mike Grogan here..

Primed Kinilaw with Salted Duck Eggs and Goat’s Cheese Salad

I love salted duck eggs. I love Goats cheese.

I also love Primed Vegetable Kinilaw.

So, why not mix them all and make a Super Primed Kinilaw Salad.

Ingredients:

  • Chopped onion, garlic and ginger
  • Cut cucumber, tomato, sliced radish and capsicum/peppers
  • Optional pomelo, dragon fruit, ampalaya, boiled okra, whatever is fresh and seasonal and can be pickled (could even add finely sliced carrots)
  • Add olive oil (the more the merrier), apple cider vinegar (the more the merrier) and lemon/calamansi juice
  • Can even add leafy greens and herbs
  • Salted duck eggs (or normal quality eggs -the best you can afford)
  • Goats cheese or your favorite cheese with cheddar also tasting good
  • You can even add kimchi if you like extra spice in your life
  • Sardines in olive oil or anchovies would also rock this dish

kinilaw-rocks

Method:

  • Simply mix your Veg Kinilaw and store in the fridge
  • Can last month as it matures and pickles (yummy and good for your tummy)

Tricia’s fabulous Primed Laing

A special thanks to Tricia Noel for this fabulous Primed Laing recipe.

tricia-laing

  • From Primed Patricia Noel 

    Ingredients:

    1st extraction from 2 grated coconuts (coco cream)

    2nd extraction from 2 grated coconuts (coco milk)

    Dried gabi leaves.

    Chopped onion, garlic, ginger.

    Salt and pepper, to taste

    laing

    Method:

    1. Place coconut milk in a pan and reduce until about half in volume. You can start seasoning mildly with salt and pepper at this point. When reduced, place dried gabi leaves together with chopped onion, garlic and ginger. Allow this to rehydrate the veggies. The dried gabi leaves should about double in size.

    2. Right before taking this off the fire, add the coconut cream to make the laing richer. This should be about 1/2 to at most a cup of coconut cream, depending on how much gabi leaves you have (of course you can add more coconut cream depending on your preferred consistency). Cook the coconut cream for about 3 minutes or until the laing thickens up.

    Optional: – add siling labuyo (bird’s eye chilli) before serving for heat – add cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp after adding coconut cream (because we love our DHA) – I imagine it might be good to add lemongrass to the coconut milk as well together with the onion, garlic and ginger. I’d try making this without the lemongrass first though. I like simple, clean flavors.

  • We get our dried gabi leaves from the Centris sunday market in Quezon City 😊
