Menu of November 15 – 21

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.

Sunday November 15

Worked from 9am – 7pm.  Glad I still have energy to cook.

Breakfast ~ Yogurt

Lunch ~Idli ( the Indian pastry I said in my last post.  White with Indian spices)

Dinner: Pan Fried Tempeh, Indian vegetarian curry with eggplant, sweet potato, mushrooms, spring mix salad, rice with yogurt.

Monday November 16

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.

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.
