Upsized breakfast for today! For $5.50, this bowl of noodles came with a prawn & 2 slices of abalone, in addition to the fishcake, fishballs & sliced pork. Requested for extra chilli but didn't feel soft at all. Otherwise it'll be a perfect start to the weekend. [18 Aug 18]
When I was pregnant, I thought the hardest thing I would ever have to face as a mother would be child birth. Four years and two kids later, I realize just how wrong I was 😅. The responsibility of raising a human is both exciting and terrifying. On the one hand you've been gifted this blank canvas, free to shape in the best way you believe possible. On the other hand, you realize that you will be the foundation for their inner voice, moral compass, and guide for what is right and wrong. On a daily basis I find myself filled with self doubt over my parenting choices. Living in a multicultural environment, our children are exposed to a plethora of people, many of whom may not share the same mentality and value system. In my opinion, society tends to pendulum swing on two extremes. Either complete acceptance, or unjust alienation. There are so many things I've witnessed over the years gaining acceptance that I would have never imagined growing up. At the same time, there are so many basic human rights that I am seeing being violated in what is considered modern times, as the world stands silent. As a mother, I don't want either of my children to be told what to think. I believe my role is to teach them how to think and interpret any information given to them. Acceptance for the sake of societal approval is a silent form of coercion. Tolerance for others, including those they may not agree with, is one of the most important assets that can be given. If every child is taught to respect the people around them, whether they see eye to eye or not, our children's generation may see better times in the years to come. .
At the end of the day, all we can do is try our best. I do believe with a sincere heart and patience, our children will be guided towards what is right as good will always prevail ❤️

Let’s talk substitutes!! 🗣 You don’t always have to eliminate foods altogether.. familiarize yourself with nutrition labels (we’ll make a beginners post about that soon), to make the best possible food choices that pertain to you and your goals. Here are some substitutes Elias and I have made in our own diet:
🧀 Cheese. At HEB, they have fat free mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Regular cheese has 8-15 g of fat per serving while this one has none!
🥚 Eggs. Aim for all egg whites or intermix egg whites with a regular egg or two for less cholesterol and fat!
⛽️ Oil and butter. Use pam spray to save on 14+ g of fat! Pam has 0 calories and still gets the job done. Same thing for butter, substitute with the ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter!’ spray, this is 0 calories as well.
🥛 Milk. Use almond milk to save on calories compared to cow’s milk. However, it is low in calcium so make sure you get that in else where. 🥤Flavored drinks. This 0 calorie Gatorade will save you 30+ carbs when compared to regular Gatorade, vitamin water, etc. AND it tastes just as amazing. However, it does contain a lot of sodium for those of you who consider that.
🥞 Syrup. Use sugar free syrup for less calories and carbs.
Using these substitutes can cut out excess calories that you can use towards a snack or craving! What are your favorite snacks Maybe I can help you find a substitute 🙂

Coming from Japan where the drinking culture is on overdrive, it was a bit of a surprise to find that in Taiwan, there's not much of a drinking culture at all. For example, in convenience stores in Japan, a good half of the refrigerator space is dedicated to alcoholic beverages, while in Taiwan, there might be a little corner with some beer, and some variety of Japanese canned alcoholic drinks. In restaurants too. Most any modest restaurant in Japan will provide a menu with a page or more just for alcohol, and in Taiwan, there might be nothing more than one or two beer choices. So what do you do when you want some wine or a cocktail You do a Google search, and if you're staying in central Taipei, you might find your way to Trio Bitters, which turned out to be a legit wine 🍷 and cocktail bar. If you're coming from Japan, I'd recommend the cocktails made from fresh fruit, since you'll pay about half of anything comparable. This probably had to do with the difference in the price of fruit in Japan and Taiwan.

I found that sometimes we hold on to things that will NEVER be good for us because we are scared to get uncomfortable...over these last few months I’ve found out things about my past relationship that would tear and break a woman down but I’ve been praying not for strength but outlet...and I realized that our mind is a HUGE part of our immune system and that we have to start there first....there is enough bitter women in the world and I refuse to contribute... Instead I’ve buried myself in personal development...my nutrition...and really setting the tone each day to fulfill my purpose here.
Love still lives here in certain forms and the pain I’ve felt is not it’s definition...instead example to myself that my strength will not allow anything negative to reside in my presence 🌱

𝔼𝕒𝕥𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝕙𝕖𝕒𝕝𝕥𝕙𝕪 doesn’t have to be hard; we just overthink it. Sometimes 𝕤𝕚𝕞𝕡𝕝𝕖 is 𝕓𝕖𝕥𝕥𝕖𝕣 👌 Udi’s new gluten free multigrain bread topped with shredded chicken and Daiya’s dairy free shredded cheddar 😋 That is a side of frozen asparagus (2 servings 😘) with butter and Mrs. Dash garlic & herb salt free seasoning. I love Mrs. Dash because they are decently priced 🙂 What is your favorite salt-free brand of seasonings for food
𝔽𝕦𝕟 𝔽𝕒𝕔𝕥𝕤: Research has shown that the minerals and amino acids in asparagus may not only protect the liver against toxins, but can also relieve some of the effects alcohol has on the body. It is believed that the vegetable helps certain enzymes break down the alcohol better thereby alleviating some of the hangover effects of alcohol consumption.
As far back as (approximately) 160 BC, asparagus is mentioned in writing. It’s said that Queen Nefertiti proclaimed asparagus to be the food of the Gods. Romans, in the 1st century B.C. became the first to preserve the vegetable by freezing it in the Alps. Roman emperors had special “asparagus fleets” to gather only the best quality asparagus and bring it back to them. 😏🤤😍💜 #FoodforThought

Fun time with my cousin this week! We made cookies that hang on the side of your mug, so fun!
Lemon buttermilk and mascarpone pancakes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tonight I decided to make breakfast for dinner - because I’m an adult and can do what I want when I want 👊🏻So I whipped up these ‘Fluffy Lemon Buttermilk and Mascarpone Pancakes’ from @giadadelaurentiis “ Happy Cooking.” I actually got this cookbook as a Christmas gift from my Zia, but once again you can get it at the library! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These pancakes are soooo fluffy ( makes me think of the little girl from Despicable Me 🦄). The fluffiness comes from folding egg whites into the batter and then the mascarpone makes them creamy and delicious. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They are a little more work than your average pancake, but that’s what makes them so extra 💁🏼
I couldn’t totally let my inner child ‘don’t care what I have for dinner’ attitude fly, so I did make some modifications to this recipe. I used whole wheat flour and reduced fat mascarpone .. I have made this recipe before using the recommended ingredients and to be honest, I thought the modified version was just as delicious as the original. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The cookbook itself is pretty well-rounded.She has a section on eating clean, comfort foods, weeknight warriors ( quick meals) and more. I also appreciate how every recipe has a symbol if it’s vegan, vegetarian or gluten free so if you have dietary restrictions it’s a great option! I haven’t explored too many recipes in this cookbook, but what I have made in the past has been great! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I give this recipe: 🍆🍆🍆🍆🍆
