This year, I’m trying to eat and cook more healthy meals without giving up bad food completely (e.g. my ramen and fried chicken). That’s why I’m excited about writing a food diary to log what I have been eating. For the week of March 5-11, I didn’t really do a good job of taking photos of my food, so here are some of my lunches and dinner throughout the week.
Lunch: Wingstop – Mild, Garlic Parmesan, and Louisiana Rub boneless wings with a side of veggie sticks (carrots & celery), and seasoned fries well-done.
Lunch: Menudo – A traditional Mexican soup, made with beef stomach (tripe) in broth with a red chili pepper base. The broth is seasoned with fresh lime, onions, and cilantro. My co-worker’s mom made this, and it’s delicious!
Dinner: Spaghetti all’arrabbiata with Mushroom. A spicy pasta sauce made with garlic, tomato, and red pepper flakes fried in olive oil. I like to add mushrooms to my pasta dishes, and for this dish, I added brown shimeji mushrooms.
Lunch: My sister made me lunch! Cold soba noodles salad – soba noodles (buckwheat noodles) with grilled chicken, snow peas, and thinly slicked green onions topped with sesame dressing.
Lunch: Our company had a company luncheon, so two of my co-workers and I all ordered a different dish to share. Ahi crunchy salad, penne with chicken, and a Margherita pizza with an add-on of mushrooms, onions, and garlic.
Lunch/Dinner: I went to my parents’ house, and my mom made fried chicken (to bribe me into helping with errands), and lotus root soup (forgot to take photos).
Lunch: Sushi! Celebrating my sister’s boyfriend birthday. Some favorites are salmon, mackerel, albacore, and tuna nigiri.
Dinner: McDonald’s chicken sandwich and fries
(no shame) 🙂
