Wacky Wednesday

18 May

Guess what?! I got bitten by a vampire in the morning!

Did that get your attention? No..ah darn it..gotta come up with a better one next time.
Okay, I had my blood drawn and some other physical tests this morning, which means I had to be fasted starting midnight (no food, no drink and that includes water). The person who drew my blood might be her first day doing it. She poked my arm at the middle part, which I clearly knew that wasn’t the right place. I sort of told her that it should be the one a bit on the side. Well what she said? She said that my vein was really deceiving and poked at the place that I told her. DOH!

The weather was really cold/cloudy and rainy! We’re in May, aren’t we supposed to have sunny and a bit warmer weather?

on our way to grocery store

Don’t get me wrong…I do actually enjoy this kind of weather (and right after I said it out loud, the sky cleared up and the sun came out. Grr..just can’t see me enjoying something huh??)

I had a super late breakfast: coconut pancake, braised coconut shredded chicken and sliced of whole avocado.

I made this coconut pancake after seeing the recipe on Nom Nom Paleo. Actually it was her husband’s, Fitbomb, who came up with this. I didn’t remember exactly what he put in his, but roughly my coconut pancake had:
3 eggs
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

I fried them with 2 Tbsp coconut oil on medium heat.

The pancake was on the bland side (I purposely did it that way since I don’t want it to be sweet anyway), but it was on a drier side. After checking back the original recipe, I figured I forgot to add at least 1 Tbsp of fat (butter or coconut oil). DOH! Well, I still finished it and saved the other one for a snack.

I couldn’t have enough of yucca root fries,Β  so I made another batch, which also the last batch.

Because of those, I didn’t really have a proper lunch. Pretty much I polished off the entire plate throughout the day. Even as my post workout meal.

Had some strawberries, which I made a little effort to cut off part of the stems away. Usually, I just pluck the leaves and left the stems and I am not embarrassed to admit that I just swallow the entire strawberries including the stems. πŸ˜›

I was so happy when these babies finally arrived!!

Red Boat Fish sauce, a Paleo approved fish sauce! No sugar added, no chemical, no gluten, no gimmicks! Just anchovies and sea salt, that’s it! Authentic from Vietnam and I can’t wait to add these into some of my cooking or use it as a dip! Woot!! Big thanks to Nom Nom Paleo who spread out the word of this item gem.

So finally I got a chance to cook the white perch fishes that I got 2 days ago. As I mentioned, when the fish is fresh, just need to salt them a bit then pan fry them and enjoy it!

Served with a dipping sauce (mixture of juice of 1 lemon with 3 tsp of Red Boat fish sauce). YUM!

Red Boat fish sauce tastes very differently from other fish sauces that I’ve had before. It’s not as fishy and salty. It’s just perfect! I’m pretty sure it’ll be wonderful as part of marinate as well!

I’m still pretty full to have a dinner (blame it all to the morning fasting that threw my eating schedule to a whack!), but these fishes and the dipping sauce surely tempt me….A LOT!

I’m still in my Desperate Housewives marathon, but don’t get me wrong. Although I still spend quite sometime in front of my computer, 80% of the time I’m sitting on my stability ball. How’s that not a great core workout? πŸ˜€

Have a great evening everyone!


Ok I just had my very light dinner although I wasn’t hungry but I rather eat something now rather being starving later midnight. Btw, Kath is having her first blog giveaway! Go visit the post to learn more how to win $30 voucher! πŸ˜€

    Eek, what a nightmare – when you have some blood drawn and the person who does it routs your veins with the needle! 😯

    Jos, you’re so kind with helping me with my study so much! I’m so, so grateful! πŸ™‚

    Today, I tried fish sauce for the first time, but … eew, it tastes so foul! 😯 I didn’t like it at all, and the smell made me feel a little sick. 😦 But I’m happy you got a good, Paleo-approved one! πŸ˜€

      Good thing the needle was tiny otherwise I’d scream too.

      You’re welcome Kath, I’m glad I could help πŸ™‚ That’s the least I could do.

      Aw, I’m so sorry that the fish sauce made you sick 😦 I should’ve mentioned on the post that fish sauce taste/smell is not for everyone. Because pretty much it’s made from fermented fish (rotten fish in some ways :P) The taste and smell are something that need to be acquired. Either you love it or hate it. Usually fish sauce is used in part of marinate (about 1 Tbsp or so), not as dipping sauce. I used it as dipping sauce cause I was just feeling lazy to come up with something more original πŸ˜›

        No need to be sorry! πŸ˜€ I bought it before because I wanted to try it anyway, and it wasn’t so expensive, so not a major loss. πŸ˜‰

    Coconut pancakes? Sounds interesting. I’ve never heard of that Red Boat fish sauce before. Thanks for introducing that.
