Simple Meals on a Simple Day

09 Jun

Hey all
For some reason I got up quite early today cause I was itching to keep continue working on my work stuff. I know, I know I might sound like a broken record keep talking about it but seriously it actually helps to motivate myself to keep doing and not giving up. You see, I do have a tendency to put myself down a lot and comparing myself to other people – whether in fitness, food choices, cooking skills, job etc.

Anyway, I had a simple breakfast with 2 tea green tea bags – I wanted to take a little break from making loose leaf tea. It’s good but just require a little effort. Tea bags are more convenient, don’t you agree?
2 slices of Egg Loaf Sweet Potatoes & Carrots Frittata that I made yesterday plus some veggies.

Then I sat on my stability ball, working in front of my computer for the entire morning, while also snacked some macadamia nuts – Promise this time I didn’t finish half of the bag in one sitting. A handful at the most.

Btw I only have 1 bag left..ARGH!

Lunch was a huge plate of greens, shredded carrots, whole avocado drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar, some sweet potatoes (purple and Japanese) and some beef dish I made yesterday.

It was my first time cooking with parsnips and I’m not a big fan of it. When I saw them on sale on my local grocery store, I was intrigued to try adding them into the beef dish that I made. The taste wasn’t bad, but it had that off taste I just don’t like- sorry can’t explain that more.

Then I continued working on my stuff while got distracted along the line by checking emails, Twitter, FB and now blogging! 😛

Anyway, Hubby K and I are off to have a dinner for some special occasion. Can you guess what is it? 😉

Later all!

Do you compare yourself with others a lot? Do you like parsnips and turnips?

    I always love your colorful plates! 😀 Everything looks so yummy! And yes, I like root vegetables a lot! (Too bad turnips are out of season now, I have an appetite for them currently! :()

    I try not to compare myself with others so much anymore, but it has been a long way. 😉

    Looking forward to reading about that dinner! 😀
