I had a late breakfast, around 11 am. I woke up quite early but I felt tired because I woke up several time the night before. So I decided to take a nap to regain my energy.
I had papayas, strawberries, fava beans, almonds, and cashews for breakfast. Nuts and beans really help to make me feel stuffed.
For lunch I had 麻辣汤 (Malatang: spicy soup). I didn’t expect the restaurant to gave me that much chili oil because I ordered the mild broth, I ended up do not drink the soup 😓
So what’s in my soup? There are cauliflowers, napa cabbages, black mushrooms, seaweeds, rice noodles, and quail eggs. I didn’t eat the quail eggs, I forgot that I shouldn’t order it because it’s almost my period time, it’s better to avoid anything from animals including eggs.
I had a late lunch, around 3:30pm. By the dinner time, I didn’t really feel hungry. So I just eat seamed organic rice, steamed cauliflowers, and steamed pineapple.
Around 9pm I started eat mix nuts again 😆
Pain checker of day -3 of the projected period:
No pain at all, my mood was good 😊 I still have a little cold symptom, but I think it’s going away.
The same day last period I did 24 hours water fasting to relieve my back pain and lower abdomen discomfort.
I got my Ayurvedic medicines yesterday. I had to picked it up at the custom office. They held it for few days. Apparently Chinese regulations prohibit people in China to receive medicines from abroad. The funny thing was I have been receiving Ayurvedic medicines for more than a year and they just started to check my package this month. Apparently I have ran out luck!
It’s not a good news for me. I need to figure how to get my medicines deliver from India to China, no matter what.
Anyway, here is my new Ayurvedic medicines for the next one month.
I also take some suplements every morning.
I bought turmeric supplement from iherb. I read that turmeric is good to reduce inflammation, I want to give it a shot. I’m still waiting for reply from my doctor about the dosage that I should take. The brand that I bought is called Organic India. It has a really good review from many people on iherb. Let’s see how my body reacts to it.
For breakfast I had papayas, strawberries, and bananas. It was very filling 😬
Another vegetable soup with rice noodle and quail eggs for lunch 😆😋 Not too spicy this time 😈
I ate too much almonds before dinner, that’s why I only ate light dinner last night. Steamed broccoli, steamed pineapples, and a little bit more almonds 😆
Pain checker day -4 of the projected period:
No pain at all. The same day last period I had slight back pain and lower abdomen discomfort.
Temporary conclusion: eating clean diet helps to reduce inflammation, it means less or no pain.
Breakfast : red dragon fruits, a banana, a kiwi, and a bunch of almonds 😁
Same old same old for lunch… I’m a boring person 😆
My dinner was steamed organic rice with two eggs, carrots, and Peas.
Pain checker of Day -5 of the projected period:
No back aches, cramps or whatsoever, but I started sneezing a lot after I went out. Yes, I’m catching cold 🤧
Breakfast: My husband couldn’t find a wholewheat bread, so I went with no bread at all. That was pretty filling, so I will try to go without bread at all for the next few days. My fruit plate was kiwis, strawberries, bananas, and dragon fruits. I couldn’t finished the dragon fruits, so it went for the next day breakfast 😁
I freaked out when I check my weight, I’m loosing weight again. For an underweight person, that’s a no no 😱😱😱 I need to make a new plan to gain a healthy weight…
Lunch: mild spicy vegetables soup with rice noodles and quail eggs.
I had seafoods spaghetti for dinner. I used up my fish and seafood allowance so fast! 😱😱😱 No more 🐟 and 🍤 for this week…
I started eating almond for snack, I need to gain a healthy weight 💪🏻 I’m ordering a big jar of mixed nuts, my husband said I have to have it with me all the time and eat it like a cow eats grasses 😆😆😆
I woke up late and missed my breakfast. For lunch I had the same tomatoes and broccoli rice as yesterday, but this time the meat was eaten by my husband 😁
I had fried sweet potatoes with Japanese sauce. It’s sweet potatoes = healthy + fried = unhealthy, so… what’s the score for that? Dang it! unhealthy! 😱
For dinner I had Cauliflower broccoli rice with fish balls, beets, and tomatoes 😋😋😋My favorite!
The first Fish/seafood allowance has been taken.
Breakfast: two ghee wholewheat toasts, 1.5 small bananas, and some strawberries 😋
After yoga I ordered lunch, tomatoes rice with a cup of broccoli 😋 So what’s that brown thing that looks like meat? Yes, it was meat. And no, I didn’t eat it. Straightly went to the trash can 😈
Are doughnuts considered as unhealthy snack? Well… those were fried and have sugar topping on it, so… yes, it’s unhealthy. And I ate four of them. Guilty as charged 😓
Dinner… I ordered Subway’s Veggie Delight 😋
