Balanced?



Pork and Veggies

I am now trying to lose weight, so at times I would just eat my full meal during lunch, and eat oatmeal (mixed with either cereal drink or yogurt) for breakfast and dinner. One time last week, brother cooked Bistek - but instead of using beef, he used pork, and instead of frying the meat before adding the marinade to become the sauce, he just boiled the meat and the marinade. Still, it tasted good.

Brother also cooked the remaining vegetables in some soy sauce and sesame oil (a la Bibimbap) just because he felt the veggies might not be as good anymore if we still let them inside the fridge. I had a delicious lunch that day, thanks to my brother.

I still struggle with my food intake, sometimes I eat good, sometimes I give in to temptation. Then again, I am happy that my body has already adjusted to the 1 cup of rice per meal. I used to be a rice lover, so getting myself used to just 1 cup, it was a sweet victory for me, to say the least.

i have friends who swear camote is a great rice substitute. i would probably try it as i can only take oatmeal once or twice a week. good luck!

Aww. Same here, sis! I can't go a day without rice. So, we are now forcing ourselves to 1 cup of rice per meal, too. We're also adjusting pretty well.

Good luck with your quest to lose weight. I hope we'll both be successful. :)

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
