This week had been messy and just hectic. Its the week before the volcano erupt. (I won’t go into detail here since it is a food blog.) Just moody, lazy, and with the days getting shorter that does not help the mood either.
I thought I was organized and ready for this week. Had a menu planned out and flyers all looked at, but of course many circumstances jump out and its all out of whack.
I also recognized the fact that after switching to a mainly vegetable diet that I am not eating enough calories. That would explain the constant fatigue I have. I seriously thought it was because I was coming down with a cold. So, my goal after I found that out was to watch my calories and eat enough calories.

Woke up and started to organize freezer and pantry. Looks soooooo nice!!!! I think I woke up at like 4 or 5 that day since had such a tiring day on Sunday.
Just don’t look at the bottom shelf of the pantry for now. Hehe
But since I did so well re-organizing … I bought myself a placemat of my people!
Brunch ~ Smoothie
Dinner ~ Broccoli , Eggplant with miso paste, left over Indian curry, Spinach and cheese on portabella mushroom.
Snack: Had a guilty pleasure snack today. Short cake cookies. Thats when the sugar hit and my mood start going downhill … oops …. I knew cookies are evil!!but they are so gooood

Lunch ~ Fried chicken ceaser salad
Dinner ~ Egg benedict but on a portabella instead of english muffin. I love it that way!
Snack ~ Blue corn chips
Thursday November 19
Dinner: Fried chicken wings from Chinese take out and Squash quinoa tabbouleh. Recipe from Cookie + Kate and its absolutely what I needed from a hard day at work. I only used 4 ingredients, squash, quinoa, fresh parsley and lemon juice and threw it together within 5 minutes.
Friday November 20
Brunch ~ All you can eat sushi oh ya!!!!!!
Dinner ~ No noodle pad thai. It was absolutely amazing and makes me reallllly wanna purchase a vegetable Julienne peeler! One day … so mine looks more like a salad instead of a noodle form but its ok , its the taste that matters right ?
I also made peanut fried tofu.(note to self ..must make that salad in that recipe too!!) Instead of baking it I just pan fried it and add the peanut sauce. Faster and less electricity used since it cost so much 😦 hehe.
Saturday November 21
Being a bad bad BAD example here only eating one meal only and not prepared at all after a good day of eating on Friday. I was up early in the morning and ran around and work all day and had barely time to eat dinner. I think that’s when my mood started to spiral down. (more update on next week’s post. )
Dinner ~ My favorite Indian Briyani with chopped vegetable yogurt. (Theres a name for this I forgot again!). I ate 5 bowls of this. (probably another cause of my down mood from too much glucose ? Will have to do more research before I say so hehe)
So ….. there it was .. a crazy week, the start of a spiral down of eating less healthy food. I didn’t want to add what I had for snacks so you folks won’t crave the crazy things I had.(chocolate, chips etc.) I guess I was too focus on getting enough calories and less focus on the quality of the meals. Consequences comes this following week. Stay tune.
