I’ll post up today’s stuff tomorrow…sorry..it has been a busy day today. In the meantime you can read my workout entry for today. 🙂
Ok I got a really good cardio workout in the morning, but my knees were all acting up thanks to my terrible shoes. I planned to go to Road Runner Sports Shop later to get a new set of running shoes. I’ve heard lots of good stuff about this place, so I decided to give it a try and I did. More on that here.
Anyway, even though I wasn’t at my most intense jog, I felt super hungry afterward. It took us about 30 minutes to drive home, not to mention we had to stop by at a market to get some groceries. So I munched on Clif® Bar Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Energy Bar.
The taste reminds me a lot of the usual Oatmeal Raisin cookies. It has a slight cinnamon taste in it, which is not quite my favorite and it’s pretty sweet too. But after 6 miles jog/walk, my blood sugar was pretty low, so I devoured the whole thing in a second. I always feel a lot hungrier after I did cardio workouts.
Back from the market, I reheated plain soymilk, mixed some cocoa powder and a bit of sugar as part of my breakfast. It was ok, but cocoa powder might not be that good companion with plain soymilk. It tasted a bit bitter, might need to add some vanilla extract to balance it out.
And I had this Whole Wheat Arabic bread, pair up with Crunchy Peanut Butter! It wasn’t the best combo, but I had no cheese or hummus around. I ran out of my whole wheat bread and craved for peanut butter so this whole wheat Arabic bread satisfied my crave.
And as usual my dear hubby made me a cup of hot tea. I usually always have a cup of tea t work too, but it’s usually a green tea bag instead of loose leaf tea.
I bought lots of bell peppers at Superking Markets because they were on sale this week! I love to bell peppers, especially the colorful ones because they make even a simple dish look very appetizing. Like this Stir Fry Fish Fillet Medley!
I came up with that dish name. In the mix was very simple stuff: Fish fillets, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, carrots, red onions, and garlic, seasoned with salt, black pepper and some light soy sauce. Yummy!
And I need the fiber fix so boiled a big bunch of spinach!
We didn’t finish the fruits because we had to go to the store and then headed up straight to my in law’s place for dinner. I forgot to bring my camera so no food pic for the dinner. :[ But majority of the food are meat based dishes, including the vegetable dishes. All vegetable dishes cooked with some meat in it. And they also had fried egg rolls. I only had 1/2 of it just for a taste. Believe me I do have weakness in deep fried and crunchy stuff. Potato chips, french fries, deep fried egg rolls, fried chicken, you name it! As I try to cut down on those, the less temptation I have towards those foods. But I still try not to start munching on french fries..ugh…those stuff so addicting. Once I start I can’t stop so better not start at all!
After the dinner, we had some green tea mousse cake. The cake was pretty light but I didn’t eat the mousse part..was too sweet.
