It’s My Friday!

I know it’s only Tuesday, but it’s my Friday and I am super happy although I don’t actually have any plans at all for the next couple days. So why am I so happy, you wonder? Well, let’s just say I’m just happy to be able to take a mental break from work. My brain has been pretty foggy lately and I desperately need a break.

What am I gonna do? Honestly, I have no idea..I’ll just go with the flow. I don’t want to stress out too much planning stuff while in the end it didn’t turn out the way I want it. So might as well just go with the flow so no expectation, right?

Ok so how was my day today? As I’m typing this while sitting on my stability ball, my abs/core is SORE as hell from this morning workout. It’s sore in a good way though. I haven’t felt my abs this sore for a while so it’s a proof I had a good workout today.

Since our microwave is officially unusable now (thank goodness the exhaust fan function is still working), I had to resort to a an old fashioned healthy way of warming up the food: steaming!

1 medium white sweet potato & 2 slices of pan fried chicken breasts

I had another big sweet potato topped with some coconut flakes as my breakfast at work. (no pic but you get the idea). I realized that this white color sweet potato didn’t fill me up as much as the orange or the purple one. Hm…I have to take a mental note on this.

Lunch was really similar to my dinner.

I topped this with slices of a whole avocado – no picture since I was eating with my co-worker (didn’t want to get a weird stare from taking picture of my lunch)

And as a “dessert” I ate about half of this fruit bowl that my co-worker gave yesterday. (and finished the rest after dinner)

Came back home, I was craving for Roasted Curried Cauliflower so I made that.

While I had my oven on, I made another batch of One Pot Baked Mixed Veggies. This time I only had eggplants, zucchini, tomatoes and chopped onions, seasoned with salt, pepper, curry powder and used coconut milk instead of water.

My dinner (last remaining of Primal Chinese BBQ Pork, stir fried grass fed ground beef, Roasted Curried Cauliflower, sliced whole avocado) = DELICIOUS!

How do you warm your food other than using a microwave?

In this modern time, microwave is like a staple appliance in almost every household in the US (as far as I know). Back in Indo, we’ve never had a microwave. My mom usually either pan fry the food or steam them to warm them up. Besides we hardly had any left overs so we usually ate fresh cooked food almost everyday. Besides there are a lot of study saying that microwave destroys part of the food nutrition so it’s better not to use them too often. But for busy people like most of us who work full time, it’s just hard not to use it. Before my microwave broke, I actually didn’t use it that often either (I couldn’t help it at work though cause I didn’t want to eat cold lunch). I prefer steaming for warming up my food as it retains the moisture while microwave tends to dry out my food.

Have a great night!
