Pesce and Veggie Diaries: Day 20

Breakfast

Chef is at it again with his original creations. He coated the tofu with a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, turmeric and garlic powder. He then pan-fried the coated tofu until it turned golden brown. The result was this dish that most curry eaters would love.

Pesce and Veggie Diaries: Day 19

Lunch/Dinner

The combined meals were due to some scheduling conflicts. It was too late to have lunch and too early for dinner, so a fusion of both just made sense. We went to a popular shabu-shabu place called Onyasai. Not only do they have a vegetarian menu, they also served high quality vegetables. The soup bases you see below resembling a yinyang were spicy and soy-milk. It was really satisfying. We ordered 7 varieties of mushrooms, my favourite of which was the maitake, but all were very good.

Recipes!

My mom and my friends are asking for it so yes, some of chef’s dishes will have its own recipe blog post. We are still trying to figure out the format and the frequency of those blog posts but until then, on to the food!

Breakfast

Repeat! It finally happened. We made this breakfast a couple of days ago, but since it was really good, I didn’t mind. In fact, more please!

Pesce and Veggie Diaries: Day 9

Now what?

This 30-day challenge isn’t even done yet and we found ourselves last night thinking of other experiments we can do for the succeeding months. Maybe a 30-day challenge about learning how to play the keyboard or the guitar, all for the purpose of self improvement. We’ll see. But on to the food.

Breakfast

It’s a cereal day. So basically we mix 2 types of cereals, the flat ones and the fruit-granola mix. As usual, we put milk and yogurt, plus the flavour of the week, which in this case is blueberry jam.

Pesce and Veggie Diaries: Day 8

Pesce and Veggie Diaries: Day 8

After a week of only eating plants, I would say that the hardest part in switching our diet is not that we can not have meat. But rather it is the fact that we had to make a conscious effort discerning what type of food we eat. Are we getting enough proteins? Are we eating too much tofu? Are we consuming enough fibrous foods?

These are questions that should be asked on a regular basis but since you can just eat whatever you want, you rarely put a second thought into.

Breakfast

The combination of the avocados and the roasted sesame seeds really made this dish stand out. Again, roasted sesame seeds MADE this dish. Ever since my mom introduced chef and myself to roasted sesame seeds, we never looked at it the same way again. Just pan-fry a quarter cup of seeds and try them, your taste buds will thank you for it
