“The sound effect that is made when eating. The “OM” is the chew. Used to describe something so delicious, you will consume it quickly.”
My initial plan was to give up junk food and bread, eat less, and spend less on food. That immediately backfired on me within a week. I definitely have eaten less, but skipping lunch is a no-no. It’s not that I can’t get creative with food, it’s just bread is cheap and that equates to sandwiches! Quick and easy, my friends. If I have to substitute with rice, salad, or soup, I spent more money. Bread and spending less contradict.
I’ve stayed away from junk food, that’s easy. Not today though, out of desperation at the Zot-N-Go, the last thing I wanted to eat were Ramen, microwavable soup, sandwiches, or $6 salads. With my lonely dollar bill I bought Pop Tarts. The chalky aftertaste was just as bad as having Altoids. Only the icing and filling satiated me. If I have to eat cheap and not have bread, junk food is the result of it.
So you see my conundrum? Lewis and Jasmine scolded me to high noon about this. Maybe instead of completely eliminating bread, I can eat less of it. I can definitely spend less this way. A loaf of bread costs less than $3 and it’ll last me for 1.5 weeks! C’mon now. I hate skipping meals, especially when I need to energy to literally run around from all ends of campus.
It is done, eat less, no junk food, less bread, spend less money on food. Good. I just need a healthier lifestyle.
Does vegan food count since it omits a lot of stuff?…
I used to avoid Thai food like the plague when I was younger, mainly because my parents always turned the other cheek because “they’re a rip off of Vietnamese food”. It’s not. It just as flavorful, spicy, tangy, and sweet, all in one. My very first taste of a Thai dish was Pad Thai, or Phat Thai. Every type of Asian restaurant has tried to perfect their version of this tasty dish. I still haven’t found the perfect restaurant that makes really good Pad Thai. A lot of people here prefer the mainstream restaurants, but I always try to root for the underdogs, like Thai Ritz. They have a great Pad Thai there, large portion and super fresh. I always get great service there so I have no idea why Yelpers are bashing their restaurant.
Tastespotting featured Alice’s blog, Savory Sweet Life with her recipe for marshmallow dip for fruit. Looks super good, no? I always plow through food blogs if the recipes look promising on Tastespotting. So to my surprise, guess what I found? That’s right, this! I need to try this recipe out for Pad Thai. I don’t want to shell out more than $10 for a plate of this when it seems so much cheaper to make at home. If I could have 2 or more servings of this dish, I would. Gluttony for the win.
It’s bad to feel obligated to change your ways when Easter is around the corner, but at least you’re willing to change right? I’m hoping this will jump start some new and better habits.
- Eat right — give up bread + junk food related items, should just give up high fructose corn syrup altogether
- Eat cheap — make 3 meals a day, cut down on eating out
- Eat less — usual portions, eat 3/4 or 1/2 of serving
And of course you can tag on exercising and sleeping right.
