Food: a variety of eats

As I transitioned to enjoy again the joy of cooking and eating new combos, I’ve been eating a more varied spread of food! :)

Breakfasts:

Almond milk, cherry (sooo sweet that I cannot eat more than a handful at the time) and a tortilla-egg mess

IMG_7619

I simply heat a tortilla, spread LC cheese, cracked two eggs (one each side) and top with ketchup.

Sliced peaches, homemade soy milk and radish pancakes

A “pudding-dessert” like combo of 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tbsp coconut flour, almond essence, 1/2 cup almond milk, topped with walnuts. Really tasty! :)

Cherry, chocolate almond milk and a protein cake. I used a different recipe this time:

  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/4 cup egg white
  • 2-3 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix everything and microwave for 3 min.

It’s a very high protein and tasty but the texture is a bit too chewy, not as cakey like as my original protein cake.

Meals:

A soup made with winter melon, bamboo, black fungus, tomato and mushrooms. I love it so much that I’m cooking another batch right now! ;)

and store-bought kimchi (I had to wash it out 2-3 times to make it less spicy and salty)

IMG_7627

Grilled chicken with salad

IMG_7621

I like simply grilled chicken more than any other form.

Salad and almost cheeseless pasta casserole

IMG_7645

Chopped salad made with mixed greens, cherry tomato, cucumber and mushrooms, dressing with olive oil, balsamic and mustard.

IMG_7648

The almost cheeseless casserole is delicious. I can’t wait to make more variation of it! :)

I’d say it was a good week of eats! Variety keeps nutrition all covered and more fun to eat as well! :)

I wonder …

When I was thinking about  title for this post… Gunther’sI wonder” came to my mind. Hello Gunther, if you’re reading it, say hi to Mara and tell her how much I love her and miss you both~~~ :D

I wonder… why two yummy ingredients together does not produce exponential yumminess?

To reinvent my morning toast, I combined tahini with mashed avocado, hoping for some magic. Nop! that didin’t happen :(

IMG_9024.JPG

but I did have some success on making the poached egg…. I’m getting there ;)

I wonder… what am I going to do when fall arrives and no more peaches for breakfast? :roll:

IMG_9034.JPG

I went to school for a meeting and there was FREE food. But… not my kind

SandwichPlatterLrg

<br />

cole-slaw

brownies

chocolate-chip-cookies

none of these can be called health. I ate anyway because I was hungry, but I wonder … Why they can’t make it healthier? Why free food is always unhealthy? Well… I guess it’s because it’s cheap.

I wonder… Can I live one day without veggies? NO! When I got home, I went to WF to pick up ESSENTIALS

IMG_9037.JPG

I wonder… Do veggies make my belly happy or make my mind happy?

IMG_9039.JPG

warm salad: bed of romaine, tomatoes, sauteed onions with lotus roots in olive preserve.

A big bowl of steamed KABOCHA!!! :lol:

IMG_9042.JPG

I wonder… will I ever get tired of kabocha? Maggie, what do you say?

This weekend is going to be a BLAST! Why? because Star arrived TOMORROW at 6.30AM :lol:

A good & A bad news

Good: I got the summer internship that I wanted (so badly)! :D

Bad: Wedding canceled! :(

When I got the offer, my first reaction was shock/panic. I told the news to a friend, he congrats me but my face was not showing happiness at all. That is because I just started planning for the wedding a week ago and now it’s not going to happen. :( It’s not that I’m canceling my wedding for the internship (that sounds so bad), instead it was to make the summer more “productive” by bringing forward the wedding. Now, it’s going to be next year, just as planned originally. But for some reason, I’m not as happy as I should/thought I’d be. Maybe I’m still digesting the news :shock:

Anyway.. no time to think about it too much. Spent another whole day at school, came back, wanted to run but no time :( Had to do the most hateful housework: IRONING! :evil:
