To be honest, I'm just so thrilled I'm working somewhere I want to work and enjoy working, and the fact it's a food stall where I get to learn about Ethiopian cuisine is too exciting!
I've been learning a lot about the amount preparation and cleaning that goes into the stall & just how tasty Ethiopian food is! All the large pots of bubbling, fragrant curries...I very much look forward to my lunch break, where I usually have a flat bread/pancake (injera) with various curries. Yum :)
Now I just love looking at food market stalls with homemade cheeses, breads, fresh fruit & vegetables etc. And for these past two weeks, I've been quite happy to spend some of my money on a few products that have caught my eye so far...
Green drink. I know, it looks a little scary! But it's full of organic greens (kale, broccoli, silverbeet) as well as grapefruit and orange and honey which gives it a nice sweetness. It's delicious- very energising indeed! I've seen the stall at uni, where they sell kale bars too.
Goji berries. I thought it was about time I tried some goji berries, after reading so much about them! Luckily I got a bit of a staff discount too ;) I really like the taste of them & grabbing a handful to snack on. I think they'd go very well in a mix of raw nuts, shredded coconut and dried fruit :)
The guy who sells these also sells Loving Earth products, such as activated nuts, which means they've been dried in the sun then dehydrated- and he said to think of them as "pre-digested", as the enzymes have been released. Good stuff :)
Tamari almonds. The perfect snack- and something a little different and more interesting than raw almonds. I adore the salty taste...mmmmm!
It's fun being a worker at the stall! Serving lunch to staff, who'll give us delicious cherries in return & buying fresh apples to snack on. And working, even if it's just two days so far means my dreams of travelling to Europe next year around June are becoming a little bit more of a reality ;)
Have you tried these products or Ethiopian food before?
