I’m on a diet, once again, and the majority of my thoughts lately has been about food. I love to cook and I SUPER love to eat (which is why I’m fat), so I’m trying out keeping a food diary of sorts, as a way to keep track of what I eat (which will hopefully guilt me into eating healthier). This isn’t meant to be a daily thing, but I took pictures of almost everything I ate today so I’m posting them here!
Breakfast: boiled egg, steamed kangkong, lentils stir-fried with onions, and some tomatoes. Also, a cup of coffee with a teaspoon of honey. One of the reasons why I got fat was I kept drinking lots and lots of instant 3-in-1 coffee that had lots and lots of sugar. I consumed, at most, 4 cups of sugary coffee a day, which was probably way worse than when I had a milk tea addiction. Now I take my coffee without creamer or sugar, sometimes with honey, sometimes with vanilla flavoring. I have only 2 cups max a day now.
Lunch: Roasted chicken livers, and basically the same of everything else from breakfast. The chicken livers was a part of my toaster experiments: I tried wrapping them in aluminum foil before putting them onto the pan, but after 20 minutes, they still looked a bit uncooked, so I got rid of the foil, and toasted the livers for another 10 minutes.
Dinner: half of the pre-made salad from Goolai that I bought from the grocery, 4 small slices of papaya, and roasted chicken. For the chicken, I only coated it a bit with garlic powder, salt, and tarragon and popped it into toaster for about 25 minutes.
Sometime during the day, I also had my second cup of coffee and about 3 tiny pieces of candy that I used to control my cigarette cravings.
I think this has been a fairly healthy day of eating (unless I binge on instant noodles later). I’m supposed to be following the Slow-Carb diet, which has worked for me before, but I almost went nuts the last time, so I am allowing fruits and the occasional dairy in my diet this time around.
