day 2517 – wasabi aioli poke

it hasn’t been warm all season. now that the weather is starting to get hotter, it calls for poke cravings to be satisfied. the combination of fresh ingredients mixed together with sashimi is a refreshing and healthy way to replenish after a workout. i miss buying ingredients and making my own poke at home. sometimes i forget how easy it is to put a poke bowl together

day 2291 – poke time

spent the statutory holiday chilling at home watching netflix and dramas. not productive but relaxing day to say the least. evening rolled around and it was a very productive. bought ingredients home and did the full do-it-yourself poke bowl for dinner. the bowl was deliciously refreshing with my favourite salmon sashimi. i wouldn’t mind making it again sometime. i also did a bunch of meal prepping for the upcoming week

day 949 – so green

image

dinner full of green food felt like the way to turn the corner and slowly leave that nasty cold behind. getting back to eating more greens is the goal instead of grabbing what’s most available. never thought i would ever say i missed my veggies, but i really do after a stretch of not so health conscious food. time to get healthy and stay healthy, the big events are fast approaching

day 881 – eating right

image

holiday seasons are terrible when it comes to indulgences. there’s just so much food everywhere i go, as if everyone is ready for bulking season. i am so sick of seeing food that sometimes i feel hungry but have no appetite. getting my greens today and sticking to my plan because i want no part in holiday food anymore. i know i made the right decision cause i felt so much more refreshed not having consumed dense food

day 828 – munch time

image

prepared my very own salmon sashimi salad today made with lettuce, salmon sashimi, tomatoes and avocado. a meal i was looking forward to all day, maybe that explains why i was so hungry this morning. tasted yummy except next time i would pair it with a different dressing to go along with the sashimi. don’t worry, i am not going vegetarian, i don’t think i ever can because i still love my meat and fish

day 778 – informal farewell lunch

image

getting together with a couple others for an impromptu farewell lunch because he is leaving our downtown neighbourhood for better opportunities filled with exciting adventures. but i will probably still see him elsewhere, just not in downtown business attire. my order of sashimi tuna salad tasted as good as it looked; rarely am i so satisfied after eating a salad and one that i would order again in the future

day 469 – freshii

image

i wasn’t able to wake up early enough to prepare my own lunch so it gave me opportunity to finally have my freshii salad bowl for lunch. chose the bistro salad, a simple turkey breast with tomato and avocado salad that i could probably make myself but somehow it tasted better. i should wake up earlier tomorrow to prepare a lunch so i can avoid spending eight dollars on a salad like such

day 398 – tonight’s dinner

image

spinach garden salad with sundried tomato salad dressing, garlic alaskan salmon on french bread and boiled perogies for dinner. i am open to trying new dinner ideas, for once changing up and staying away from the typical chinese dinner of rice and chopsticks. the idea of organic vegetable had me thinking it’s a healthy kind of meal. i am a picky eater, there’s a lot of greens i do not eat but i can settle with lettuce romaine

day 283 – one for my mother

image

saturday night out celebrating mothers day with whom i consider the best mother in the universe. without her, i would not be anything i am today. felt like i was getting a healthier choice with all that greens on my baja fish tacos until the skinny fries and bellinis came, then all i need was stuff my face

day 261 – easter friday

image

i have been around cambie area all my life but never walked into vandusen garden ever, until today. got free passes to vancouver attractions so took the opportunity to check out vandusen and also pitch and putt at queen elizabeth park. very pleased to see the weather cooperate with my plans, the sun managed to peak out most of the day, too bad time doesn’t allow me to check out other attractions this pass has to offer
