What I Have Been Eating, Plus Random Photos

Coffee with unsweetened soy milk and a dash of cinnamon tastes like a bad Christmas morning.

Stray flower from maybe*mej. Forgot to take it out!

Salad from the Galleria supermarket salad bar. I love the wasabi dressing!

(I know that croutons aren’t exactly healthy but I’m attracted to anything fattening, so…)

Chicken hotdogs and coffee with regular soy milk.

Oddly enough, regular soy milk tastes just like unsweetened soy milk, but with more calories (and sugar!). I’m going back to Vitasoy unsweetened after this carton.

I’m still eating breakfast, I’m still struggling with it. I can’t believe something as simple as PUTTING FOOD IN YOUR STOMACH can be such a chore for me. I’d honestly rather spend my mornings sipping my coffee while looking at spa covers. I’m also done with the no-rice silliness and my sissy light breakfasts and have opted to go big. I am limiting myself to rice in the mornings (save for cheat days aka this Friday because we’re eating at Chic-Boy!). Boyfran told me to follow this rule: carbs for breakfast*, protein for lunch, fiber for dinner. Makes sense, works for me, etc.

New tita shoes.

My hair is a hot mess! I’m still growing it out so I can have it shaved again (properly this time).

*When I don’t feel like eating rice so early in the day, I will be referring to this list of tasty and healthy breakfast ideas.

    Ate Helga, hi! Just want to know how unsweetened soy milk tastes like. Is it the same from most ordinary milks that we have? Thank you! :)

      Haha, nooo, it tastes like tofu. Flavored soy milk is better, though. I used to drink vanilla flavored soy milk in college and I liked it a lot.

    Is that brown rice in Tuesday’s meal? Looks delish!

    There are certain brands of unsweetened soy milk that are still too sweet for my taste. Have you tried Soyfresh low sugar soy milk? This one has no trace of sweetness, which is how I like my milk.

    • Reply Helga June 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm

      Yup, wild/red rice!
      The Vitasoy one that I got has zero sweetness! It’s like liquid tofu lol. I’ve seen the Soyfresh Low Sugar around, I’ll give it a try!

    May mga almond/hazelnut milk sa Healthy Options :)

    I’ve tried Almond Breeze (almond milk supposedly has better benefits than soy), but almond milk definitely isn’t for me. :( (although almond milk is smoother, I just don’t like the taste!)
    I bought it in S&R if you’re interested though.

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been utilizing? I’m having some minor security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?
