Monday’s Menu 11/12

Very Berry Milk Shake

Breakfast: Coffee, Very Berry Milk Shake

Lunch: Classic Falafel Sandwich from Crisp—mmmmm…it was ok. Their sign said “the best falafel in town”, and that’s why I walked in. Their whole wheat pita was too fluffy and thick, cucumber/tomato salad in the sandwich was flavor less. There are quite a few Middle Eastern food chain opened up in the city and I was happy about it. I haven’t found any of them is really flavorful, yet.

Dinner: Fried Rice (green peas, corn, onion, brown rice, tofu), Veggie Burger

Lunch at Soba Totto: Sawara Soba Lunch Special (soba, marinated and grilled fish, rice, green salad)—I know, I know, it’s totally cheating. But my friend treated me for celebration for Obama presidency. AND I’m taking cosamin supplements for joints, which are made of crabs, shrimps, and other seafood. Why not eat it instead of taking a pill?

Dinner: Japanese Dinner (Brown Rice, Spinach with Sesame Dressing, Kimpira Gobo, Samosa, Veggie Burger—maybe because I had a piece of fish for lunch, I was not hungry till late. Definitely my stomach has been changed how to process food.

Friday’s Menu 6/22

Green Goddess

Breakfast: Coffee, Green Goddess Shake—the resin in dark dinosaur kale started to bother me. It changed the taste of Green Goddess Shake. I parboiled kale to reduce the resin content, which helped some but not completely. I might take a break from kale shake for a while.

Lunch: Lentil Burger again. It’s so good and I made tons of them.
