It has been ages since I did a WIAW post. Since our move to the Philippines and frequent travels, my eating habits have suffered. I often relied on quick fixes and snacks way too much. So as part of new year resolution, I’ve made the decision to get back to simple real food (cut added sugar, meat, white everything and limit processed snacks), even if I’m traveling. So here are some of my eats last week, part of it happened in Thailand. Yes, I returned to Thailand 3 days after we got back from our family trip, for a safety training which was absolutely the best training I’ve ever had! 🙂
I arrived Bangkok and check-in at Siam Kempinsky hotel, which is absolutely stunning! I loved everything about it, from lobby decor
to room decor and that bath tub! oh mine….
the welcome fruit plate
okay. back to food.
My latest favourite breakfast combo after morning workout no matter it was 3 miles or 12 miles is oatmeal, cooked with roasted pumpkin, flaxseed, 2-3 egg whites, topped with PB2 sauce and almond butter! Love it. It’s so comforting and leaves me full for at least 3 hours.
this time with cacao powder added in
hotel breakfast choices: toasts with butter, jam
since they didn’t offer oatmeal, I sticked to whole wheat toasts for carb in the morning
two eggs are a must
porridge with two soy-ginger eggs
high fibre cereal with milk, fruit and two poaches eggs
a packed breakfast by the hotel since I had an early flight back. I requested WW bread with cheese and egg. It was perfect!
I also got some steamed sweet potato for the flight. Three kinds, all super sweet
airplane food is tasteless, oily, and simply not good, so I bought alternative this time around. Roasted pumpkin and two hard boiled eggs. I felt so much better than eating airplane food.
lunch during training
stir-fry vegetables with shrimp and a mushroom soup
stir-fry veggies with shrimp, sautéed squid with eggs, and vegetable soup with tofu
stir-fry veggies with shrimp and tom yum with seafood and mushroom
stir-fry frozen vegetables with tofu topped with siratcha. First lunch at home after the trip.
salad with tofu and asian peanut butter sauce
noodle soup with fish cakes
greens, mushrooms, and red rice
red soup with noodle, fish cakes and fish
for two nights that I was especially tired after finishing training at 7pm, instead of going out for dinner, I went out for thai massage and got frozen meals from 7/11 instead. This is glass noodle with vegetables and soy meat, not bad
and a corn to make it a meal
dinner at home: steamed fish
desserts and snacks:
sticky rice with mango which was absolutely delicious!
salted broad beans
just WW bread
and chocolates (stress relieving device ;))
That was it. 90% clean simple meals that are filling, nutritious, and makes me feel good. 🙂
