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

resolution series: [eleven] eat clean

there’s a saying “you are what you eat” and i couldn’t agree more. understanding the value of eating well goes a long way to staying healthy. i have always been told you must eat regularly and not skip meals so not to ruin your body clock. too late it’s already ruined and that’s exactly why i have chronic stomach issues. a lot of the times it can’t be helped because when i get busy cramming for deadlines, i lose track of time and forget to eat my meals. this is one of the things i have put emphasis on in trying to correct and make better. i can’t deny i am a picky eater and there are many things i choose not to eat simply because i don’t like it. but there’s also i lot of things i choose not to eat because my digestive system just doesn’t want to accept it. it has taken me a long time to realize my body actually doesn’t like starch all that much and that my digestive system is very sensitive to oily foods. simply reducing starch has made a positive impact to my well being, and the bonus is my stomach has thrown less tantrums. i still have a lot of inexplainable cravings at the most random times but i am trying hard to reduce and control that department. not saying i cannot have them, but just need to keep a close tab on it and only use it sparringly. staying hydrated still troubles me since i can never consume enough water to maintain what people call hydrated, and no one will believe me when i say my body operates just fine with less water. my conclusion is: eat like shit, feel like shit

day 438 – potluck

image

a thanksgiving potluck with a large selection of  of delicious food was called for. so many choices of desserts available, i don’t even know where to begin. i only managed to try half the dishes and was already enough to keep my stomach satiated until 10pm. too much eating over this weekend isn’t a good thing at all. too much food to tempt me but can’t eat it if it doesn’t fit my macro

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
