I’m Daring You the Truths!

05 Apr

Hey everyone, how’s your week going so far?

I started mine with a new workout this morning from and go a nice sweaty workout. Despite not eating any dinner last night, my performance was pretty good. I didn’t feel sluggish or lack of energy. It’s true that I’ve been always working out in empty stomach for 90% of the time for the past year, but I usually never skip dinner the night before.
Truth: When you consumed enough calories of the day, your body will naturally not wanting any more food.

Refueled myself with sweet potatoes & grass fed ground beef

Truth: Remember I mass baked sweet potatoes on Sunday? Well, I found out a lot of them are still undercooked, especially in the middle. Solutions? Zapped them in the microwave for about 5 minutes and tada!

Washed and packed berries for me and Hubby K.

Truth: I tend to be greedy in terms of packing my favorite fruits – so you could tell which box is mine 🙂

Packed my breakfast as well – 2 small avocado with some squirt of lemon juice, dash of salt and grass fed ground beef

Doesn't it looke like a hack version of Chipotle?? LOL

Truth: I love my own “guacamole” version vs. store bought (which I still had 1 more container in my freezer). For some reason, store bought guacamole tastes bitter to me and my quick version is creamier and has a slight “sweetness” in it.

Lunch was whatever stuff I put together last night 🙂 I finally got to taste Curried Chicken Kale I made last night. How funny I cooked but ended up not eating any of those until today.

Truth: I wasn’t really hungry for lunch but I still finished the entire box (plus the berries later afternoon)

Dinner was left over Baked Provence Herbs Lamb Shanks and more Curried Chicken Kale. (no pic but you get the idea)

And I also cooked more stuff:
Beef Stew (similar to 7 Spice beef stew but with 5 spice powder and star anise instead plus carrots, ginger and turnips)

Use-Whatever-Veggies-You-Have Stir Fry – the combo this time were asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, green peas and grass fed ground beef)

Truth: I don’t know why I’m still cooking during weekday despite already did meal preparation on Sunday. For some reason, I always cook

Finally got the chance to cut the pineapple that I got last week.

Truth: I don’t really enjoy cutting pineapple and yet I am still getting it and it will usually take me days to finally cut it before it actually goes bad.

After some macadamia nut overdose yesterday, I convinced myself to write my own Healthy/F*** off scale food using Whole9 template.

The higher they are, the healthiest and I strive to eat them more often. The middle part indicates some food that are not actually that good for your health but not that bad so I’ll eat them on some rare occasions. I put nuts in that scale so I’ll be more mindful consuming them. Finally the lowest area where food that are pretty much that won’t do any good but when it’s the time that I really want it, I’ll just F*** off, have it, savor it then move on. Just like last time I had that flaky buttery cookie.
Truth: I am not even sure if writing it down will actually work for me or against me. Anyway, it’s good to actually put it down on a paper so I could always refer back. Of course the scale might change later on in the future.

Have a great night/day everyone!

    When I pack me and my boyfriend’s lunches, I also hog my favorite items 😉 But hey, that’s my reward for making lunch!

    I think what you wrote about that the body doesn’t crave more food if it had enough calories is only right if you eat well. With me, at least, it’s like that I get insatisfyably hungry if I eat simple-carb based. I could eat three times as much as I do now and still feel like starving! (Before I started Paleo, I tried to get my eating right with “healthy” food plans – the official version, with lots of bread, pasta, etc, and little meat – and I ate quite a lot more than I eat now and still was hungry all the time. I woke up hungry in the morning and sometimes even in the night. I was feeling sick from hunger, it was awful. Now I feel good and satifsied. :))

    I just bought beef for a stew! Love the idea with 5 spices and anise! Last time I used quite different spices (also good, one of the recipes to come next), but I’ve wanted to make something with anise for so long!

      You’re totally right..maybe I should re-write it as “the body doesn’t crave more food if it had enough calories from whole foods” 🙂

    Good job on the cooking! I wish I could cook more often! Lol!

    Side question: how the heck do you pick out pineapples? I always end up picking ones that aren’t fully ripe yet (as evidenced by that super tart taste!). Too bad there’s no fruit hawker stalls here in the States but I digress…

    Great chart, by the way! Lol! I’m SO GLAD to see that I’m not the only one who thinks kale and chard are “exotic”!!! ;D

      Haha I wish that I don’t have to cook all the time…gotta take breaks once in a while.

      How to pick a pineapple: look at the ones that are not too green and with “big eyes” 😛 and the ones with great fragrance..

      And don’t you just love it that we discover more similarities? 😀
