When my husband goes shopping, he tends to bring home food I would not normally think of buying. Well, he did it again. This time he brought home a pre-prepared individual serving sized meal from Patak’s Tastes of India’s food line from a discount food store. He brought home Chicken Korma with Rice (mild). In case you are not familiar with Chicken Korma, it is a rich flavorful Indian creamy coconut chicken curry. I don’t normally follow food trends but recently I found an article at RiceCookerWorld.net that stated Indian food will be the next big food trend. Having this box in my house I decided to read the article. I discovered the maker, Patak (a Canadian firm), is exporting its product to India. It is flying off shelves there as workers there like here, don’t have time to make their own cooking.
This is how the Patak’s website describes its heat and serve meals: Patak’s® meals are perfect for a quick fix when you don’t have time to cook but still want to eat tasty and authentic Indian food. These meals don’t need to be kept cold so are great to eat at work or school.
Now I’m not much of a coconut fan to begin with; however, I have been at excellent Indian restaurants where I’ve actually enjoyed this dish. Finally, lacking leftovers (except for some fresh tomato salsa lurking in the frig) in the house and wanting to clear cabinet space, I decided to give it a try.
To make Patak’s Chicken Korma, slide it out of the cardboard sleeve and puncture several holes in the plastic film on the top of the heat and serve bowl. Microwave on high for 1 ½ minutes and remove from microwave, and then let it stand for 1 minute prior to eating.
I was pleasantly surprised by the authentic taste. I could taste the coconut with flavorful under tones of ginger, turmeric, and cardamom. The sauce was rich with cream, coconut and butter. It was yummy but too rich and sweet for me. I dove into the frig; out came the fresh tomato, onion, cilantro with lemon zest salsa. Something light was needed to cut the rich taste, for me.
Traditionally, light fresh veggies are often added to curries. Oh, my now that tasted much better. If I had known in advance, what I know now. This tasty dish could have been divided into two servings with the addition of veggies. It might not be as easy to pack but your waistline will thank you for it. My husband paid $1.89 for this meal at the discount store. Online, the price was almost $5.00 at most grocery stores.
If you like rich Indian food and don’t mind a meal that packs a wallop of 450 calories, 20 g of Fat, 55 mg of Cholesterol, 970 mg of Sodium, 54 g of Carbohydrate, 14 g of Protein, and supplies 0% of your body’s daily need for Vitamin A and C, 2% Calcium and 6% Iron, then this dish is for you. I feel like I ate a cardiac arrest waiting to happen. I thought Indian food was to be good for you.
Darn if my hubby doesn’t have a different one of these Taste’s of India meals here for me to try. At least, this one looks better nutritionally. It is the Vegetable Tikka Marsala. I’ll give that one a good. At quick glance, it has 340 calories. That is the same amount of calories as some of the lower 6 in Subway sandwiches that use lean meat and no cheese. I’ll give it a whirl. But for the rest of today, it will only be a piece of fruit and a healthy salad for me.
I know this will be difficult for many to believe, however despite having an internet search engine optimization (search engine optimization) man and having run an internet marketing and advertising company since 1999, I haven’t been to an search engine optimization conference. That changed once I attended some London SEO events in 2013.
Prices ranges from $900 USD based on the seminar and if you enroll for training and workshops. Add lodging and travel costs of $1,000 to $3,000, and you will spend somewhere between $ 1,500 and $ 6,000 to attend an search engine optimization conference, unless the convention is down the street.
Then there is the moment. When you factor in travel time, travel prep, and recovery A conference means. Sending a single individual and insert cash and the time together, let alone a staff, is a costly and time consuming proposition.
So what? Everything takes time and costs money. The price does not matter as the yield on investment. Is it worthwhile?
Answering the question means assessing whether fulfilling those needs is higher than the total cost of this conference and seeing whether or not the conference can satisfy those requirements, and identifying your goals. Your goals will differ based on who you’re. There is as you might expect. Remain up on their abilities and some are seeking to find out what everybody else is doing. Others are seeking to network with clients and clients. SEO conventions are attended by non SEOs . You will find advertising folks who’ve been tasked with figuring out an issue to. However, to lump everyone could be presumptuous. As I type this in SES I am sitting alongside Prof. Marco Schmäh in Reutlingen University in Germany. The area of study for many years of Schmäh has concentrated on advertising, and he is exploring that field of study contrasts with the world of marketing.
Toni Voutilainen flew out Together with his Juha Lanteri to the summit and functions for the Finland. They’ve got an ulterior motive because they seeing with two customers with operations in Global Intelligence Alliance, Hong Kong along with the curiously. com. This defrays the expense of attending the seminar by combining several objectives. In terms of the conference Voutilainen states “Usually 80-90 percent of the articles we already understand, so we could go home with a few new ideas from the demonstrations.” He proceeds “But we have a tendency to come across the most precious nuggets when trading war stories with all the hardcore professionals after their demonstrations. We find enthusiasm and a philosophy for training and relationships that are interesting are developed into by these acquaintances. Because of this we’ve collaborated with companies like Distilled Wider Funnel, and Efficient Frontier [because obtained by Adobe]. In that sense it is definitely well worth it.”
Pak Hou Cheung gave a demonstration at traditional content marketing methods function and SES Hong Kong on articles advertising, also is a Organic Search Strategist using BlueGlass UK. Along with being able to listen to community and presentations, as a speaker Cheung understands the significance of being as a topic expert in front of a viewer. “I really like the additional pressure and the chance to talk about my knowledge with all the audience,” Pak says, including “What I like the most is that the Q&A following my presentation–this really helps to open up things and most of us learn together.”
