Food: a variety of eats

As I transitioned to enjoy again the joy of cooking and eating new combos, I’ve been eating a more varied spread of food! πŸ™‚

Breakfasts:

Almond milk, cherry (sooo sweet that I cannot eat more than a handful at the time) and a tortilla-egg mess

IMG_7619

I simply heat a tortilla, spread LC cheese, cracked two eggs (one each side) and top with ketchup.

Sliced peaches, homemade soy milk and radish pancakes

IMG_7607

A “pudding-dessert” like combo of 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tbsp coconut flour, almond essence, 1/2 cup almond milk, topped with walnuts. Really tasty! πŸ™‚

Cherry, chocolate almond milk and a protein cake. I used a different recipe this time:

  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/4 cup egg white
  • 2-3 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix everything and microwave for 3 min.

It’s a very high protein and tasty but the texture is a bit too chewy, not as cakey like as my original protein cake.

Meals:

IMG_7605

A soup made with winter melon, bamboo, black fungus, tomato and mushrooms. I love it so much that I’m cooking another batch right now! πŸ˜‰

IMG_7615

steamed egg

Korean-chinese dinner?

IMG_7625

sauteed greens with mushrooms

IMG_7626

and store-bought kimchi (I had to wash it out 2-3 times to make it less spicy and salty)

IMG_7627

Grilled chicken with salad

IMG_7621

I like simply grilled chicken more than any other form.

IMG_7622

Salad and almost cheeseless pasta casserole

IMG_7645

Chopped salad made with mixed greens, cherry tomato, cucumber and mushrooms, dressing with olive oil, balsamic and mustard.

IMG_7648

The almost cheeseless casserole is delicious. I can’t wait to make more variation of it! πŸ™‚

IMG_7649

I’d say it was a good week of eats! Variety keeps nutrition all covered and more fun to eat as well! πŸ™‚

Food: dinners and KABOCHA is back!

Dinners had to be quick because I was always tired when I got home, just wanted to eat and visit my couch!

#1: oatmeal, veggie tofu stir-fry

IMG_7466

this one has celery, black fungus, tofu, oyster mushroom, seasoned with tamari and sesame oil.

IMG_7465

#2: Tortilla pizzas, chopped tomato

IMG_7480

#3 porridge and spicy-sour cabbage

IMG_7507

cabbage sautΓ©ed with oyster mushroom, black fungus, seasoned with chinese vinegar and spicy sauce

IMG_7508

#4 Wonton! Let me show you how I made it. My mom prepared the filling before she left so I just need to wrap them

IMG_7492

used this seaweed soup for the base

IMG_7488

put the wonton in boiling water, cook for about 3-4 min

IMG_7494

prepare the soup, add more seaweed and boiled romaine lettuce for extra veggies

IMG_7496

top with tons of white pepper. The whole dish wouldn’t be the same without white pepper!

IMG_7497

#5: porridge, celery salad and soy bean pancake

IMG_7526

For the salad I simply boiled celery and dressed with tamari, vinegar, sesame oil and 1 tsp sugar.

IMG_7527

Yummy pancakes!!!

IMG_7528

And the biggest NEWS is KABOCHA IS BACK TO MY LIFE!!! After not having it for over 5 months (pregnancy aversion), I finally love it again!

IMG_7481

Every night I had a bowl of roasted kabocha for dessert, sooooo good! I don’t think I like it steamed yet (as I used to) but I do love cinnamon roasted kabocha. It reminded me grad-student life, when every night Kabocha was my companion. πŸ˜‰

I still can’t eat steamed corn. I had it once and felt nausea afterwards. I guess the 5 packages that I have in the freeze have to wait a bit longer. πŸ™‚

Food: the usual suspects

Food continued to be “boring” because I don’t want Β to spend a lot of time thinking/cooking when I can only eat a little. So I’ve been relying on quick meals that I’m sure I’d like and that covers daily nutritional needs.

Savory breakfasts: Rudi’s spelt bread, LC, tomato sauce and a fried egg. Almond milk on the side

IMG_7437

IMG_7436

iced decaf coffee with almond milk (latest obsession), egg sammie with LC and mustard

IMG_7441

IMG_7443

fresh peaches, spelt bread topped with 1/2 avocado and 1/2 LC

IMG_7461

love the richness of avocado

IMG_7463

Meals:

sauteed veggies (red cabbage, collard greens, celery) with two scrambled eggs and two portions of firm tofu, seasoned with Goya Azafran, S+P.

IMG_7447

More tortilla pizzas. This is how I make two at the same time πŸ™‚

IMG_7448

IMG_7452

one topped with frozen spinach, olive roasted tomato and mozzarella.

IMG_7454

the other with oyster mushroom, zucchini and mozzarella

IMG_7455

and wonton, those that my mom made for me before she left. I still have more than 20 servings on the freezer. YAY!!!

IMG_7456

I like to put some romaine lettuce and laver in the soup, with tons of white pepper.

IMG_7458

lastly, more protein ice cream. This one has 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup silken tofu, 1 scoop of protein power, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/4 tsp xanthan gum, 1/3 tsp guar gum, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp almond extract, stevia to taste and 10-12 ice cubes,

IMG_7439

and top it with more greek yogurt. Love it! πŸ™‚
