Food: no so great

Last week I said I was enjoying a lot my meals, well… this week was the opposite. I didn’t enjoy the food I was eating, I didn’t know what else I could eat, I was bored with the usual suspects. 😦 I don’t know why…. it just happened.

Breakfast was the only meal that I still like.Still enjoying  a lot the Peach/greek yogurt/protein cake “mess”

Then I got tired/bored of chinese food. Besides I had some digestive issues (bloating, constipation and fullness) this week, I had to switch to smaller meals.

I got this WW Tuscan Paine from Trader Joes

Food: eating out

We found a new chinese restaurant close by that we all enjoy a lot, Asian Delight Restaurant in Fairfax. We went there twice and both times the food was fantastic.

The first time we ordered japanese tofu with mushrooms

the second time (last Saturday) we went back with Qiao and we ordered tofu with salty fish

It’s funny that this week I have a lot of pics store in my camera, maybe because I’m trying new food and I want to share it with you. 🙂 So this week’s post will be food intensive! 😆

I’ve been obsessed with this dish last week (4 times in a week!). It’s made with brown rice, bok choy, shiitake mushroom and chinese sausage. similar recipe here
