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”
last serving of fish ball, napa cabbage and dry shrimp soup
sauteed iceberg lettuce
winter melon, tomato, bamboo and black fungus soup
store-bought japanese seaweed salad
sautéed chinese mustard greens with oyster mushroom
purple laver, tomato and egg soup
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
made a sandwich with tomato paste, 1/2 avocado and cheddar cheese
grilled a bit
served with tomato (which I love during this season, they’re so sweet!)
enjoyed this meal. More sandwiches to come! 🙂
Q: Do you get tired of your usual food sometimes? What do you do then?
Last week I lost creativity in term of food choices. So these combos I have repeated times!
#1 2 fried eggs + grilled sandwich made with LC, steamed spinach and ketchup
I’ve been trying to increase my protein intake. 2 eggs in the morning is a safe way to guarantee I get some form of protein that day.
#2 Oatbran cooked with cocoa powder and 1/3 cup of ricotta cheese, topped with Almond butter
the rest of the family had waffles and fruit salad
I finished AB and I made coconut butter (simply blend shredded coconut for 5 min)
oat bran with ricotta cheese is a very filling combo. It keeps me full for several hours!
I forgot how tasty is coconut butter! So glad I made it! 🙂
At work, I had several times of salad, bed of greens, sauteed cauliflower with mushrooms, and 2-3 eggs.
and a thick slice of my favorite bread they offer: bread with walnut and raisin.
For dinner, I had several times of homemade wontons! I like them so much that I asked my mom to make 20 packages to be store in the freezer so I can have them when she is not here (she left this morning!).
Next week I’ll be enjoying Argentinean food!!!!! Can’t wait!!!! 🙂
Q: How do you make sure to have enough protein? What’s your favorite way to have it?
Breakfast last week: some old combo and a new one.
Oat bran cooked with blueberries and cottage cheese, top with a big spoonful of almond butter and almond milk
it was a really filling bowl
homemade veggie buns with almond milk
oatmeal, pickles and fried egg
fully cooked fried egg seasoned with soy sauce
grilled sandwich with egg, LC, tomato and spinach
A new combo, fruit soup with glutinous rice balls.
It’s something that I used to love when I was a kid and it suddenly came to my mind one day so I asked my mom to make some for me.
It was delicious! 🙂
Q: What’s your childhood favorite breakfast combo?
