It really is a new me!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

I ate at my favorite chinese buffet today with my best friend. We used to eat there quite often because we both love it, but as we've both been paying more attention to what we eat its been a few months since we've been there. Getting all of my favorites, I began eating. And one thought kept popping up in my mind after each bite.
I couldn't believe how greasy everything was. How salty. It just wasn't good. Has the restaurant changed? No, everything tasted basically the same. It's just that I've never been bothered by the greasy saltiness before...even liked it!
So anyway, I write this with a queasy stomach, pretty sure that I won't be eating there again, or greasy buffet of that type.

    If you are doing your nutrition tracking, you will see how "expensive" it really is. There are some tricks to eat Asian food. Brown rice is a better choice to eat at home. Stir frying veggies, shrimp and chicken in alternative oils or just water is also good. The herbs and spices are key to keeping good flavor. IF DW & I go to such a place, we never touch buffets, and we will split meals. We also choose wisely. Thanks for sharing. When you start to think about what you are eating, you have started to change in a right direction. Stay strong!

    Yep... you've changed! And ain't it great? I'm the same way - when I try to go back to the old me, I feel like crap. Vive la difference!
