Food: what we’ve been eating

Let’s see how I am fueling for Sofia during the last two weeks. I think I gained a little room in my stomach as Sofia has dropped. And I want to deliver a normal weight baby (6-7 lbs), so I’m eating with all my abilities despite lack of appetite. My mom is doing a great job on preparing dinners that are varied and nutritious.

For breakfast I’ve been having this mess combo that I like quite a lot. Chocolate almond milk


in this messy bowl: 1 large peach, 2/3 cup greek yogurt, 1 cup kamut puff, 1 tbsp Tj’s raw almond butter cream


a perfect combination of protein, fat and carb. πŸ™‚

Last weekend I prepared a dinner for the photographer of the maternity pics.


cucumber salad


bok choy


seaweed salad


red sauce pork


chicken feet marinated


spicy sauteed potato


spicy red sauced whole fish


They loved the food and I loved the photo session and the company. πŸ™‚

A typical dinner spread prepared by mom


winter melon tomato black fungus soup (I’m having this 2-3 times a week to avoid swelling, so far it works)


sauteed broccoli with mushrooms and smoked tofu


pork filled tofu puffs


porridge made with chinese sausage, brown rice, bok choy and shiitake mushroom


my mom’s favorite soup: pork balls, black fungus and glass noodles, with a lot of spicy sauce


Last weekend I baked some chocolate-nuts cookies for Star’s breakfasts. He likes it a lot! πŸ™‚


Chocolate Nuts cookies (2 dozens)

  • 2.5 cups old fashion old meal, grounded

Food: new breakfast combo

I didn’t post any pic of food last week because I was getting bored with what I was eating. I hope my appetite comes back soon, otherwise I might need to shut down this blog πŸ˜‰ Isn’t it supposed to be a food blog? I guess not since I got pregnancy, when my mind and appetite is everywhere but in food. πŸ™‚

But let’s recap a bit. I’ve been enjoying these two breakfast combo

#1 fried egg, toasts, goat cheese covered by blueberries (from Tj’s), fruit and decaf latte with almond milk



#2: the same but with turkey breast (leftover from the baby shower)


the combo of goat cheese and turkey breast is surprisingly beyond DELICIOUS!!! I need to get more of it!


some dinner combos: oatmeal with celery with


chicken drum cooked with soy sauce, ginger and green onions.


sauteed spinach with garlic



a rainbow stew of spinach, summer squash, tofu and tomato


Corn is back!!! I brought it back because I was having some constipation issues. For some reason, having 1 corn per day regulates “things”!


wintermelon, tomato and dry shrimp soup


sauteed romaine, kale and mushroom with tamari and garlic



and Star has been loving this combo: sautΓ©ed bok choy and red sauced spicy whole tilapia


He can eat 2/3 of the fish in one meal!!! πŸ™‚


Now that my mom arrived, she will be in charge of the cooking. I told her that she can decide on what to have for dinner. I want to be surprised! πŸ˜‰

Q: do you prefer someone else prepares the food for you? or do you prefer cooking it yourself? I used to enjoy prepare meals by myself everyday, but lately I just don’t know what I want to eat, so I need someone else to decide it for me.

Life: weekly updates

  • We met the baby this week. It was the most real thing we’ve experience since we discover I’m pregnant! πŸ˜†
  • I booked ticket to Argentina! Star is going for business, my BFF is visiting her family in Buenos Aires, so I decided to go there to meet her! It has been 6 months since I started working and haven’t take any vacation. I don’t feel the need because the work is not stressful and I rest well on the weekends. But the fact that I’m going to meet my BFF, her husband andΒ her mom really made me decide to go there! We met 16 years ago in Buenos Aires. Now we both live abroad, it’s nice to meet again in Buenos Aires.
  • Saturday: we invited a couple friend and Adam for dinner. I prepared a big spread of food for them.


as usual, red sauced pork


pork rib soup with chinese yam and carrot


Spicy whole tilapia. This dish is becoming a new staple at our party-dinner tables. Star approved it! πŸ˜‰


spicy sauteed potatoes


kelp salad with garlic and chili


cucumber salad with garlic


scrambled egg with tomato


It was a nice dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food a lot. Once again, they made me proud of my cooking skills! πŸ˜‰

  • Sunday: low key. It’s raining so we stayed home. Napping, watching TV and blogging. Maybe we’ll go for a walk later.

Q: What dish makes you proud of yourself?
