My sautéed method: heat sesame oil, add the vegetables, cook for 1-2 min, add shoyo, mirin and pinch of sugar. Add some water if needed, cook for another 1-2 min and serve. Sometimes I would top some roasted sesame seeds as well. A true asian flavor! 🙂

Q: Do you use sautéed method? What’s your favorite sautéed dish?

Food: breakfast and lunch

Last week after I finished the frozen waffles that I made over the weekend, I switched to savory breakfast combo.

A wrap with laughing cow cheese and Tj’s lightly whipped cream cheese, lettuce, roasted bell pepper and a big fried egg.

IMG_7376

roll and enjoy! 😉

IMG_7379

I used this Whole Sweet Peppers… love it!

IMG_7375

On Sunday, I wanted a sweet breakfast. So made blueberries pancakes, served with almond milk and two oranges.

IMG_7390

Really easy to make pancakes: 1/3 cup of Bob red mill’s organic high fiber pancake/waffle mix, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries, stevia/cinnamon/vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 tbsp flax meal.

IMG_7392

I like it a lot so I made some more for the week. I hope the freezing method works with pancakes too.

Lunches.

#1: roasted asparagus, roasted butternut squash and turkey meatball with marinara sauce. One of my favorite combo at our cafeteria. I had it twice last week.

IMG_1008

one day I bought a wrap from home.

IMG_1010

A simple egg salad made with boiled eggs, celery, parsley, greek yogurt, mayonnaise and curry powder.

IMG_1011

and blueberry cheesecake for dessert.

IMG_1012

I found bringing wrap for lunch very convenient, so I brought the following day this combo: 2 fried eggs, LC, cream cheese, roasted bell pepper and lettuce.

IMG_1019

YUM~

IMG_1020

Another lunch staple at work: Vietnamese noodles. This one has rice vermicelli, teriyaki chicken, assorted vegetables and miso ginger broth.

IMG_1013

Lunch at home (Saturday and Sunday).

IMG_7380

butter lettuce, tomato, lemon juice and olive oil

IMG_7381

tortilla pizza. Toppings: spiralized zucchini, roasted bell pepper, mozzarella, tons of italian seasoning, S+P.

IMG_7383

Love the burned cheese

IMG_7384

the next day I wanted more pizza. So the same pizza combo and a soup

IMG_7393

miso soup with radish, bok choy and arame. very detoxing! 😉

IMG_7394

My goal for lunch nowadays is to get as much as protein as possible since I prefer a macrobiotic meal for dinner. Every other day I’d get some sort of protein from animal, either chicken, turkey or fish. And the other day I’d have tofu, egg or beans. With this in mind, I’ve been able to get 70-100 g of protein in a daily basis.

Q: Do you like wraps? What are your favorites fillings?

Food: meals of the week

I’m having a lot of fun trying new dishes lately, I guess you’re enjoying reading them, aren’t you? 😉

Stir-fry veggies (onion, brussel sprouts, asparagus, spinach, tofu) with Tj’s thai sauce, served with brown rice

IMG_6971

I used to love this sauce, I could eat it everyday, so I got it again. Unfortunately I was not obsessed with it this time.

black chicken soup with black fungus and shiitake mushroom, a very nutritious soup that I have at least once a month.

Opss…. I asked for more one-pot meal

IMG_6994

had it with a soup made with tomato and spinach

IMG_6995

I’m loving rice with soup lately. I’m not usually a soup person, but I’ve been asking for more soup to mom lately! Sometime, I even feel I can’t have a meal without soup. 🙂

IMG_6996

After that meal, I had 2 times of this: 1 bowl of one-pot meal cooked with shredded chinese cabbage and chili sauce (菜泡饭). I’m in love of this combo!!! I had at least 5 times over the last two weeks and still want more.
