At the beginning of 2017, one of my New Year Resolution was to eat healthier. It started off great, but recently I’m having difficulties staying consistent. There are weeks where I’ll cook healthy meals everyday, and then there are weeks where I’ll eat instant ramen 3-5 times a week.
This week one of my lazy cooking is Japanese curry. I woke up at 6 am to make this curry with ground pork and a lot of mushrooms. Sadly, there was no other vegetables in my refrigerator – it’s a sign that I need to do some grocery shopping. Making curry does not require a lot of time which is why I consider it my lazy day food. I would just throw anything that I find in the refrigerator (preferable vegetables since I’m trying to eat more vegetables), and use Japanese curry roux – Vermont or Golden Curry brand. With just 3 ingredients (including the roux) I was able to finish cooking this in about 30 minutes (without forgetting to cook the rice). My favorite recipes are from the website Just One Cookbook.
When I come home from work, of course I have to give my spoiled dog (Chibi) attention. He usually jumps around on the couch or bark at my sister and I until we sit down on the floor. After, he would crawl onto our lap and turn onto his back for a belly rub. When I get home I’m usually starving, so I made instant kimchi ramen because it’s the quickest option. To make it ‘healthier,’ I added fermented kimchi and some bean sprouts. After, I was just lounging around the house watching Youtube videos, and shows on DramaFever. I should really start being more productive, but there’s something about summer that makes you want to be lazy.
