Healthy eating: Chili con Curry

I love Chili and I love Curry – so why don’t combine it? – I thought to myself “Why not try it.” And this try was so good, that I want to share it with you.

Chili con Curry

You need:

  • 2 onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 chili (red and yellow)
  • 2 bell pepper (red and yellow)
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 big can chickpeas
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ½ can coconut milk
  • Salt, Chili- and Currypowder

chiliconcurry01

Mince the onions, the garlic and the chili and fry it in a large pan with enough oil. First add the chili and the curry powder, then the diced bell pepper. Fry it for a little while and deglaze it with the soy sauce. Now add the drained kidney beans and chickpeas and fill it with the chopped tomatoes and the coconut milk.

Stir well, thereby stir in the tomato paste and cook for about 20 minutes. Stir from time to time, to avoid getting burnt. Finally, spice it up just like you like it. Voila!

How to: Travel With Your Surfboard

When you own a surfboard, of course you want to take it with you on your next surftrip. Your board should arrive there just as healthy and safety like you. Unfortunately, it is known, that many airlines do not treat the luggage very well, so I show you this time in a step by step guide how you can make your board ready to fly.

Step by Step Guide: How to prepare your surfboard for a flight

Step 1: Check the baggage policy

First you should check if it’s possible to take your board with you and how much it will cost you. This page provides a good and comprehensive overview of many airlines, what they allow and how much they charge for the transport. Check also the baggage policy on your airlines webpage. Here they will also let you know if a reservation for your luggage is required.

Step 2: A good board bag is mandatory

Now that you know you can take your board with you, you should pack it safely. A good board bag is half the battle. But also the way how you pack your board is crucial.

Step 3: Remove Leash, Fins and Wax

If there is still wax on the board, remove it. Otherwise it maybe sticks melted in your board bag later. The Fins can break off during transport broken, so simply unscrew them with a Fin-Key. Also remove the leash from your Board.

Step 4: Protect Rails, Tail and Nose

The nose and the tail are particularly vulnerable. You can protect them with foam-pipes from the hardware store, which you usually use for the insolation of pipes. Cut them on one side, pull it over nose, rails and tail and fix it with tape. If you don’t have a hardware store nearby, you can also roll a towel and use this instead. To avoid residual glue, you can wrap your board cling film before. To avoid plastic waste, I refrain and remove any residue with nail polish remover.

Step 5: Pack and Stuff

For this reason – no plastic waste – I don’t use bubble wrap. I use clothes and towels instead to cushion my board. Wrap your Board into it and fix it with tape. If you have a board sock, put it over your board now. The well-padded surfboard now comes in the board bag. Fill free spaces with other clothes or towels.

Step 6: Nothing forgotten?

Check again if you have Fins, Fin-key and leash. It would be annoying to forget those things. And also don’t forget the tape so that you can prepare your board again for your flight back.

Now your board should be good enough packed to survive the flight unscathed. So good and safe trip and see you in the line up!

5 Ways Travel Brings Out The Best In You

Traveling changes people. When you’re in a foreign country or another city, you become a different person, with an entirely different aura. When you’re at home, you live a life of routine: wake up, go to school or work, come home, sleep, repeat. You rarely take risky opportunities and instead rely on rational decision making instead of impulse.
