I love bunny cookies!!!!

Don’t forget to join the “Cookies Make Yoga Fun!” Giveaway from the awesome Grounded Fitness :] They’re soooo super cute!!!!

I’m having one of those nites that Coco had awhile back…. starving and can’t sleep. I’m doing work and browsing blogs (currently reading backlogs of Eat, Live, Run) I KNOW I should be doing work or sleeping but I’m distracted and SO SO hungry.

Let’s start with the morning. I woke up and right away I had to get to meetings. I was flustered and finally at 2 I had a break so I took a quick shower and grabbed some fruit….

Guava + Chia :]

But mid 2nd or 3rd piece I was already in my 230 meeting >_<;


My tummie was starting to grumble so I had my Gummy vites for the day (yay for them NOT counting as candy TEEHEE)

By 4ish after my last meeting I was hungry, but I decided to take a nap. Around 630 my mommy woke me up and said she was gonna make me dinner. Usually I make dinners because I LOOOOVE to cook but I’ve been super stressed lately >_<; She’s really been trying to make me eat more too.. so she was happy and I was… still half asleep haha…

Hericots Verts & Broccolini (it was OLD tho so they were bad.. see they were yellowed… I totally forgot about these in the back of my fridge for forever…)


Two bowls of delicious tomato/sprouts soup!!!


空心菜 w/ Garlic


I sprinkle hot pepper flakes & cayenne on like EVERYTHING


Garlic Chive Flowers w/ Fish Cakes and Pork and THREE bowls of white rice


Lily Bulbs & Mushrooms

I love how my mom cooks with less oil and is a bit more adventurous now (esp with food combos and asking me about tips) hehe…she’s an awesome cook but so stuck on traditional chinese foods :] It’s hard to get her to change her ways.

I watched August (Josh Hartnett is SOOOO hot in it!! Not that he’s ever NOT!!) tonite while eating my last 2 cherimoyas (need to go stock up again!!!)

Now onwards to my hunger… INTENSE hunger.. it all started around midnite…

1c of Kashi GoLean

A tub of organic dried mango

Ok, this is embarressing but I ate this ENTIRE new box of Chocolate Decadence with Almond milk tonite. @_@ It was one of the free things I got at TJ’s during their BINGO games.. it was SOO good and it was a good two heaping bowls in my BIG bowl. Scarily enough I’m still hungry :[ I think my DOG GOT ME PREGNANT, that sneaky pup ;]

BTW, I’m newly obsessed with Indigo Rabbit cookies (they’re from MA!!! YAYYY!!!) They’re LO-CAL and super healthy and really yummy!!!


I also tried the Lemon one and a Chocolate one… I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the peanut butter ones (which, if you look at the ingredients are only pb, squash+sweetpotato, cane juice & egg, seriously, that’s IT!!!!)… next are the ginger ones… then the chocolate one… which was puffy but slightly dry. But… I wasn’t a fan of the Lemon ones >_<; It just tasted kinda off and it wasn’t as soft and chewy as the rest. I didn’t buy the Cinnamon Almond ones.. but I will when I grocery shop this wkend (and I’m buying another box of the PB kind)

ANYHOO. I’m excited about this week’s BSI which is SWEET POTATO!!! Need to stock up on more :]

Grapes & Fiji

I have a bad habit of NOT drinking water. I know I know you’re thinking WTF?!?!… But yes… I get MOST of my liquids from fruits and tea and coffee and wine. The last three being very dehydrating, so often I find myself dehydrated and bloated. This happens mostly when I’m w@h…. which is often lately. I didn’t drink ONE glass of water this weekend. I woke up today craving water and grapes. So after going back and forth between oats, peppy kernals, yogurt or anything else for breakfast. I went with what my body craved…

So grapes and water is what I had…

Followed by a ton of guava dipped with my tbs of Chia Seeds :]

Also took a break from work and played with some scratch tickets…

These grapes were huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge :] And sweet and juicy!!! I’m having a HUUUUUUUUGE fruit/water coma this afternoon @_@

*chug chug chug* Munching on my vitamins!!! They all taste so different and have different chews to them :] HEHE, yay!

See you guys at dinner!!!

Art, Baklava, Clams & 3D glasses

I am swearing off CANDY (gummies, lollipops, etc…) til Thanksgiving!!!! An occasional piece of DARK CHOCOLATE is okay but nothing else. NO cookies, cakes, desserts, etc… UNLESS it’s the weekend and when I EAT OUT, I’m not allowed to buy it home. I’m getting pudgey and totally unhealthy. All the stress from work is really upping my sugar intake and since diabetes runs in my family, I really need to be more careful. PLUS, I need to detox, especially since I feel so crummy lately, due to other health reasons >_<; BUT if I eat candy, you can e-punch/kick/nunchuck my booty :D

It was SO gorgeous out I NEEDED to get out of the house despite feeling really down in the dumps. So I went to the MFA!!! I haven’t been there since summer and there were some new exhibits I wanted to check out.


I LOOOOVE it here, I can spend hours and hours drawing and writing in this museum since I started coming here in the 5th grade!!!!! What can I say, I love FOOD, FASHION & ART!!!… hmm, MUSIC too… I guess I’m just an all around artsy girl :]

OHOHOH BEFORE I FORGET *can’t contain excitement!!!* Guess which GUMMY VITAMIN is the newwwwwwwwwwww one….???? :D Hehehe *giggle giggle fart fart*

 

It was the ONLY way for my parents to get me to start taking vitamins again… so EVERY MORNING after I shower and get ready and start popping them :] Even tho now I also take vitamins with my herbal drink (iron… multi… C, this and that.. so many >_<;) I STILL LOVE THESE!!!

Does anyone ELSE eat these other than the super duper cool Gliding Calm & Moi?

(btw, if you guessed the IMMUNE C ones you win an e-cookie!!!)

Guava on the drive there…
 

I needed a snack tho before I began my wondering around the hallways…. I also needed a pick me up caffeine boost… I wasn’t really hungry and was content with my coffee… but then I had a slight chew craving… plus my partner in crime wanted some munchies… (Note: I was KINDA curious about their Roasted Pumpkin Salad…. but then opted out of it…. I don’t like getting prepared squash outside cuz they always overdo it on the butter, oil, sugar, etc… and most of the time I never like the way it comes out as opposed to making it myself… hehehe, I’m so picky!!!)

Coffee Break @ the Courtyard Café!!!

What should I get???
 

Spiced Walnut Baklava w/ Orange-Honey Syrup
 
While this was on the sweet side it was SOOOOOOOO delicious and you could really taste the orange (you could even see the orange zest!!!) I ate.. most of it :] HAHA.. 

+ Turkish Coffee Pudding Tart w/ Cardamom Cream
 
I wasn’t impressed :[ Especially next to the Baklava... this looked like a cheap defrosted tart with some mildly flavored coffee pudding plopped sloppily in it. Baklava was worth the 7.95$ this was SOOO not! At least I KINDA got my coffee's worth getting over 3 refills :] Hahaha…

I had a great time at the museum… :] It closed at 445 since it was a Sunday :[ Boo! I stopped by Starbucks...

& Walgreens (for some bandaids + more cooking mags + the chinese paper for my parents) on the way home....

I've had a HORRIBLE stomachache all day :[ I got some niiiice herbal tea!!!! It didn't really help tho :[ 

AND THEN......
Super Dinner for my Anemia!!!! (well, according to Health Castle)

Steamed Brussel Sprouts (Iron Absorption Enhancer) & Steamed Clams (Execellent source of Heme Iron) !!! (I'll explain what that sauce/other dish is in a sec)

I LOOOOVE steamed brussel sprouts.. so sweet!!!
 
I sprinkle it with TONS of hot pepper flakes :] 

Steamed Clams + Tabasco = LOVE!!!

I had some of the soup too, MMM so good!!!
 
I had like 34 of these babies!!! I need more more more…. 

& then my mommy made Taiwanese 炸酱面 (Zha Jiang Mien) – since there are different versions slightly varied by where you go…. Koreans make 자장면 really good too :]

SOOOO thick and chunky with lots of veggies and pork :]  Nice + Spicy too!!! NOM!!! This was on Shirataki Noodles :]

I’m off to watch JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH with the 3-d glasses the movie comes with :D

I have meetings startng at 8:30 tomorrow morning, my back is super sore and I feel so horrible and lightheaded so I think I’m gonna work at home again.. which means, I’m SO making myself a HUGE piping bowl of PUMPKIN OATS in the morning :] Well, I’m between that and carrot cake oatmeal (inspired by Erica)…. we’ll see how much time I have between meetings/work to do it.

(btw, I thought I’d share my PB stash…)
 
They’re all almost empty, except the Heat is On which I haven’t opened yet…

I STILL CAN’T FIND MIGHTY MAPLE!!!! *freaks out* I only saw it ONCE at my local WF and then NEVER again, ANYWHERE :[ My favorites so far are.... Bee's Knees, White Chocolate Wonderful & Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.... ok, I love them all, but the Dk. Chocolate Dreams actually doesn't appeal to me - strangely enough... 

I bought lots of AWESOME HUUUUUUGE MUGS from Starbucks today that I can eat my OATS in :D I'm SO excited.. hahaha... I also bought Dora the Explorer band-aids, YAY!
 

DORA ♥

edit @ 1102pm
Journey to the Center of the Earth was AWESOME!!! The 3d glasses made me dizzy tho so after a little bit I switched back to the 2d version.

I've been in a thriller/drama/horror movie craze lately so a nice fun kid action movie was AWESOME!!! I think I'm gonna watch ALL kiddie movies this week :]

I had a piece of dragonfruit

& 2 Cherimoyas!!! ♥

My new love, my new crack!!! Crackity cracky crack :]

NIIIIIIIIIITE!!! I’m gonna try to go to bed early, but I might fail cuz I really wanna read some cookbooks and cooking mags :]

1o*1o Daily Munch

I was up til 3am doing some extra work so I could take off early today :]


Of course this was a distraction…

I went to bed starving and with stomachache :[ That's what you get when you keep on eating when you're not hungry. Something's been irritating my stomach a lot lately and I'm scared it's all the yogurt I'm eating. Maybe I have to up my lactaid before each yogurt cup.  As much as I was looking forward to eating a Chobani, I might wait to have it for a snack/dessert tonite :] I’m feeling a bit better now tho. I think it might be peaches… I refuse to believe it’s my beloved yogurt haha..

In case you guys were curious about my morning pre-food routine.


Vitamins.


And I drink them down with my herbal drink. It’s a jujube and other chinese herbs mixture like things such as goji and stuff that’s SUPER healthy and refreshing. I’ve been drinking it EVERY morning since forever :]


& since I’m skipping my morning yogurt… When I don’t have something creamy for breakfast, I just eat my chia seeds as is. Usually in a tiny bowl and I just lick it out. it’s weird to see… but they’re really really good.

It’s sooo nice out today!!!!

All I wanted today was an apple. A crispy, juicy, cold apple. So I tried Honeycrisp that I’ve been hearing so much about. Delicious. I actually BAKED/cooked with one already but I haven’t eaten one yet. Strange, huh? I bought about 10, mostly big HUGE ones but a few tiny bitesize ones cuz I thought they were cute :]


TOO FUN! I’m gonna have issues wanting to weigh everything now just for the fun of it :]

Dior heard me cutting up my apple and did her little cute puppy dog eyes and whined for some too. SHE LOVESSSS APPLES!! She eats apples EVERY NIGHT for dessert!!!


Like mother, like daughter.


When she’s done with her bowl I always have to tell her “No more!!!” and let her sniff, lick and investigate to make sure I’m not lying to her :] She’ll sniff, lick and then be satisfied and walk away HEE HEE…

I love cutting my fruits up into small bites, takes so much longer to eat, it took me over 30 min to eat. Granted, I was working and busy running around, but still :]

edit @ 856pm

quick update before i get my night started :]

bought some stuff @ williams sonoma…

and a loaf pan… :] and two books (a world cooking book and the newest giada one!!!)

2 tiramisu and 2 caramel affair – bites
(I decided to be “careful” since my stomach has been off lately and popped a lactaid before I sampled HEE HEE) 

I have a sugar problem >_<;

PEACHIE O’s *LOVE*

edit @ 222am, next day :]

 

Gonna be a quickie since I still have to get up early tmw and go out and play in theh sun :]

Snack time!!! I was starved… MONSTER caramel apple time ♥


Choppity chop


Eating them in tiny pieces this time to ensure long lasting happiness :]



Mediocre wine, only took two sips :T

My cutie she-Elvis


Watching food network and reading my new recipe/cooking books now and JUST put my bag away but I managed to nibble about 30 of these gummy peach rings (they’re not peachie O’s, they don’t have the marshmallow *pout*)

1o*o1 Daily Munch

Happy October!!!
(and apparently happy Vegetarian day)

Since my car is in the shop I w@h’d today (I blew a tire yesterday and bent two of my rims, SUCKS!!!) which means I eat weird.

1 tps Chia Seeds


1/2 Pomelo


1 Caramel PB Bomb Apple

Yeah, I LOOOOOOOVE Rocky Mountain apples :] I have two more in the fridge to last me the rest of the week :] YAY!!! I forgot to take my vitamins so I’m gonna go pop them right now :] Including these:

DON’T get the Omega-3 gummy vites, they’re SO gross and fishy and overly sugared. But these multi and calciums make me uuber happy :] Cuz they’re super cute. I also take Women’s Dailys and Iron pills (I’m super anemic)

Btw, did I show you what I got in the mail yesterday after work?

Btw, I hate the Hidden Valley Ranch “where kids can’t get enough” of vegetables commercials. Why? Because….. just cuz it gets kids to ‘eat’ veggies, all that dressing is SO BAD FOR YOU. So you might as well NOT eat them… OY. Why can’t ppl just enjoy veggies in their natural yummy state/taste :]

Dinnerrrrrrrr Update::: (@734pm)

Strangely not hungry tonite… first I only wanted sweet chewiness so I had some mango…

(and you can clearly see Dior trying to steal some so I gave her some…)

And then after seeing dinner…

(which is actually quite tasty… look at what’s left of my huge mounds of spaghetti squash.. I got my parents addicted to squash too, mwahahaha)

(ps. Mommy cooked today cuz I told her I wasn’t in the mood for dinner)

I realized all I wanted was something sweet…

….

& Crunchy…

CARROTS!!!!
nom nom nom!!!!

& another one….

BTW, I realized that today I was a vegetarian :]

BTW, any creative suggestions to do with my pureed pumpkin I wanna use up… I know I can make cookies, breads, pancake balls (hehe), put it in my oatmeal, yogurt, etc.. soup… but something more creative? Maybe a pumpkin pasta thingie…. HMMMM… anyways, share away!!!

UPDATE @ 1259am
FINALLY started getting hungry while watching THE VICTIM (a Thai ghost movie) tonite…
1 Guava w/ Sour Plum Powder

1 Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

2 Date/Walnut Cakes


^^ LOOK!!! Didi SNUCK a nibble :O

Currently hungry now :[ Why am I even up? Oh yea.. doing some work…
