Today is a special day as I finally finished my P90X Lean Routine with Yoga X! I am so happy that I’ve gone thru this fitness program for straight 90 days and I didn’t even miss a single workout!
Anyway, after my 90 minutes yoga session, I made a protein drink by mixing plain soymilk and Designer’s Whey Chocolate Protein Powder.
I was so hungry (who guess Yoga could drain your energy that much??) so I ate the super ripe banana.
After I refueled my belly, I cut up some apples and washed grapes for my daytime snack or dessert, whichever you want to call it.
And they were a bit too much for me to bring, so I packed some for my hubby too. Can’t be too selfish, right? I admit I can be selfish sometimes when it comes to food portion (only the healthy ones though..haha).
Of course I didn’t forget to bring the egg white pancake I made the night before. And don’t worry, I didn’t bring all of them, spared some for my hubby too. But I had one extra more…hehehe… *sneaky mode*.
very fluffy and light pancakes EVER!
After I got to my workplace, I did my usual morning ritual a.k.a getting the hot water for my morning green tea. I always love Stassen Pure Jasmine Green tea.
This is my work desk. Good thing I work in a dark room so nobody around me saw me taking picture hehe
The tea has a very strong and aromatic jasmine. Don’t underestimate the power of tea bag! And I always drink it plain without any sugar. The bitter the better.
Around 10:30 am, my belly demanded to be refilled so I grabbed Odwalla® Berries GoMega Superfood.
Took this at my work desk. So thankful for the dark room. Otherwise my coworkers will think I'm a weirdo
It’s a bit sweet for my taste, but for majority of people shouldn’t be. It also has a very strong grain taste as it contains ground golden flax, organic rolled oats, organic oat flour just to name a few. And it also has lots of dried berries (cranberries, blueberries, raisins) -I could even taste chunks of them. The best thing is, theres NO REFINED SUGAR. Majority of the ingredients are organic. One little thing is it has a slight bitter taste to it, probably because lots of grains it it, but it didn’t bother me much. It kept my belly full until lunch time!
When I got home, I saw my brother already started cooking dinner. Perfect timing because I wasn’t quite in the mood of cooking. Went upstairs, changed clothing, sat in front of my computer, surfed a bit and I felt hungry. Too bad the dinner wasn’t ready yet, so I munched on Kashi® GoLean Crunch cereal (sorry no pic, too hungry to take pic haha). 30 minutes later, dinner is ready!
My brother prepared all these. Isn't he amazing? White rice for the boys, mine is brown
my brown rice, steamed whole tilapia, left over roasted duck, boiled gai lan
My brother was nice enough to go to an Asian market and got the fish and made this amazing steamed tilapia. It only tastes good if the fish is fresh, otherwise the meat will be very bland. The procedure is very simple.
You just need:
1 fresh tilapia fish (check the gill. If it’s more reddish then it’s fresh. Otherwise, pick another one)
couple slices of gingers
lots of green onions (julienne, separate the green and the stalks)
Lee Kum Kee Seafood Soy Sauce
Oyster sauce (just drizzle a bit over the fish)
1/2 tsp sugar
some salt (rub on the fish)
couple drops of vegetable/cooking oil
-Rub the salt over the fish so it’ll give it more taste. Let it sit for about 10 minutes
- Sliced the gingers thinly and insert them into the fish – gingers and seafood goes hand in hand
- Pour over the seafood soy sauce, oyster sauce (just a bit), cooking oil, sugar and the julienne scallions
- Steam over medium high heat for about 15 minutes (for smaller fish) and about 20-25 minutes for bigger fish. This one is a bit big, so we steamed it about 20 minutes.
- Turn off the heat, pour in the remaining scallions (the green part), serve and enjoy!
Pour over the sauce on the rice is yummy!
The only thing I didn’t have was the roasted duck, left over from my brother’s lunch. It was too greasy for me and I don’t like duck meat as much. After dinner I felt I want some kind of after dinner snack and I remembered the last piece of my birthday cake.
Chocolate Strawberry Cake
I was debating whether I should finish it all or just eat half of it. This is not quite my favorite food, so I cut it into 2 pieces. One for me and one for my hubby.
I picked the left one..
I took a bite and found out the cake HAS GONE BAD!! Good thing I haven’t swallowed my first bite when I saw the fluffy white thread on part of the cake.
See that fine white thread near the strawberry chunks and the cream?
SO GROSS and I lost my appetite completely! But I still craved that after dinner snack so I had a cup of Kashi® GoLean Crunch Cereal again (no pic, too lazy to go back to my room and got the camera). Ok I guess that did the trick and my belly wasn’t demanding anymore food after that.
