I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots.
I'm trying to eat better, and have begged A not to bring home any more boxes of donuts from work. So here's what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: grapefruit half, 1 bowl multigrain cherious (my favorite)
Lunch: whole grain rustic roll with butter, almonds, 2 clementines
Dinner: Hawaiian chicken with rice, green beans, 2 cookies
Not the most healthy, I know, but it didn't involve any soda, donuts, or large quantities of candy, which is a good thing. Here's what I'll do differently next time:
Since I was home before A, I made dinner. The Hawaiian chicken is a recipe from A's family, and it is tastey, A's favorite, in fact. First you cover the chicken breasts with a flour-salt mixture, then pan fry them in a little oil. You then make a sauce with pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, dried chives, and honey, but I used Lyle's Golden Syrup, since I'm allergic. So you boil the sauce and then add the pineapple chunks, and serve it over the rice and chicken. So what is the point of frying the chicken? I mean, it just gets soggy anyway in the sauce, especially the next day. Next time I will definitely skip the frying to cut calories. For lunch today? To quote A, "soggy chicken."
