Restaurants, At Home, Sick

Taking Sick Day & Late Night Tacos

During the night I felt so sick in stomach and woke up. I knew it would be coming. I admit I ate more than I was able to digest in time. Especially heavy meat. I went back to sleep around 4:30am but still felt sick in the morning.

I took a sick day and rested my stomach all morning. Around 2pm, I felt hungry so had water, banana and oj, but got sick again.


Around 7pm I was so hungry to eat udon.


Later I felt that my stomach was having a hard time to digest.


My husband had an appointment at UCLA Medical Center for some check up at 10pm. I came along…


After that, he tried a street taco truck.


People kept coming. Wow, it must be good, but I could’t take it 😦


I was just watching his food 😦

Yakisoba with Bean Sprouts & Nira

My stomach had been empty for 19 hours since 1pm yesterday. I felt sick in stomach after the Indian lunch, which I believe nothing wrong with it. I am just not capable to digest a lot of food at once and it happens once in a while. Anyway, I was so hungry last night around midnight and couldn’t wait for a morning.

Breakfast

After breakfast: Some sugar + coffee

Lunch: Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Tomato, Shrimp, Cucumber, Beef, Tonjiru
I don’t think this is too much, but my stomach feels out of order after lunch.

Dinner: Yakisoba with Bean Sprouts & Nira, Japanese Eggplant with Ginger Soy Sauce, Cucumber & Shiso + Italian White
I didn’t want anything again because my stomach still felt sick when dinner was ready. One hour later around 7pm, I was getting hungry.

I just love this cheese. Had sides and a few bites of yakisoba. I made it with a lot of bean sprouts and less noodle. Two new make-ahead dishes, eggplant and cucumber are so good.

Tonjiru & Onigiri

For some reason, I went grocery shopping to Marukai and Sprouts at 9:30am and came back around 10:50am.

Breakfast @ 11am

Never go grocery shopping when you are hungry. I craved for sugar/carbs 😦

img_1135
I thought 10 grams per serving might be ok…

img_1136
11:20am: Apple Coffee Cake + Coffee
Mmmmm, this is a kind of breakfast I used to have. Nice!

img_1138
11:30am: Leftover from last night
This could be lunch. I was still hungry.

I spent 2 hours on preparing make-ahead dishes for next week. 7 dishes are ready to go in the freezer.

2:00pm: Edamame, Shrimp, Cheese + Italian White

I was so excited to find my favorite cheese at Bristol Farms last night. Very creamy with black truffle flavor. I was going to order through Amazon but it costs more than double since a cooling shipping is required.

img_1142
This cracker is delicious too.

img_1143
Heavenly!

img_1144
Dinner: Broccoli, Cucumber, Tomato & Shrimp in Ponzu, Tonjiru (Pork Miso Soup)

img_1146
Tuna and shiso leaf Onigiri followed.

Later the night, I got stomachache. Why? Maybe I ate too much!?

Oh No! I got rash :(

img_0609
Breakfast: Banana, Nutella Toast + Coffee
He packed breakfast for me as usual. I appreciate it but no more sugar and carbs please.

img_0610
Lunch: My first “make ahead meal,” Deep Fried Tofu Gyoza
No carbs.

img_0611
We got a box of Godiva chocolate. Mmmm. dangerous.

img_0612
I noticed there was rash all over my body right after coming home. First I suspected Korean watercress I just bought at a market. Now wondering it could be a side effect or allergic reaction to antibiotics I had taken last 10 days. I got rash when taking some kind of fever drug before.

img_0614
Dinner: Korean spinach & warabi, gobo, carrot and okara (soy pulp)

img_0615
Finally, rice & whole barley with egg
The cooking book says, whole barley is nutritious and prevents carbs turning to body fat. So it is ok to eat a small portion of this rice at end of meal. Yay.

img_0616
Korean Market is great. They have various whole grains for reasonable prices.
