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

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.

笋烧肉 (red sauced pork with bamboo), my mom’s favorite

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

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. 🙂

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.

Challenge J&J #13 & a low key day

I had a very low key day. I finished editing in the morning and dedicated the afternoon/evening to RELAX and DO NOTHING! I don’t usually work with spikes of productivity, I hate that. But last week I felt called to do it because of the deadlines. After the spike came the downturn! I felt exhausted. Although I still have more to do, I listened to my body and took a very needed break, and guilty free! 🙂

I took an almost 2 hours nap, did some leisure reading, did yoga for 50 min and sweat a lot! Something weird is happening to me lately. I usually don’t sweat much except hard cardio, but I’m sweating a lot more now. Is the weather or is me?  Anyone has experience on that?

oh… and I finished The Good Wife last night at 11.30PM :shock:! Love it~~~

the “sauce” = 1/4 tomato + 1/2 avocado + lemon juice + salt + pinch of sugar

What kind of hunger is that?

Yep~~~ that’s the question I asked myself yesterday afternoon! 😦

Let’s proceed from the beginning, shall we? 😕

I woke up pretty good… had the necessity (fiberone & coffee) 😦 don’t ask, the issue is still there.

Breakfast was an old favorite: flaxseed porridge added extra flaxmeal and chia seeds, topped with cottage cheese, preserve and blueberries

and one more because it’s so pretty 😉

Very filling and yummy~~~ 😀

Arrived at office at 9AM and began to work. Snacked on almonds and a big orange. I had lunch (leftover cauliflower & barley pilaf) around 12.30pm in a lunch seminar. So far so good. The “problem” began around 2.30pm, just two hours after lunch. I felt empty but not annoying. 30 min later… I felt VERY empty so I had an apple. 15 min later… the emptiness got worse! It began to hurt! So I had two handful of almonds and dark chocolate (maybe 1/4 bar?). I thought if fruit doesn’t do the trick, maybe fats will do! Noop! 👿 By 4PM my hunger was disturbing my productivity! Okay. let’s try carbs! I went to the cafeteria, got a bagel (not WW :(), had 1/2 plain, didn’t like it at all. 😡 Back to office…. still not satisfied. I felt like my belly was full but my stomach empty. What’s wrong with me? 😯 By then I knew it wasn’t a normal kind of hunger so I decided to ignored it and continue to work. I Struggled until 5.30pm and went home 😦

A big dinner finally calmed the insatiable hunger!

A big feast isn’t complete without dessert 😉 Zensoy banana pudding

Because I had an early dinner 6.30PM, I had more munchies at night, two Nature’s Pride bread with LC! 😳 I doubt it was hunger, it was more like CRAVING 👿 I rolled to bed around 10PM, literally, rolled!!! 🙄 Haven’t had an expansion like that for a long time!!!

What a day!!! I’m glad that my hunger & craving are back but maybe too sudden! 😦

My parents are coming back from Los Angeles today! parents-free is over = no more loneliness, no more dishes to wash, no more house cleaning! YEY~~~ 😆

Q1: What do you eat when you get a painful hunger?

Q2: When was the last time you feel a tiger inside you?
