Weekend Carb Overload..

The weekend saw a carb overload for me. From having filipino food on Saturday afternoon with friends after dance class which definitely consisted of a plate of rice in addition to all the other dishes. I couldn't finish the rice.. I just couldn't swallow more than half my serving... my brain was screaming. Carb overload! Carb overload!!

However, you have to eat filipino food with rice.. if not NOT SHIOK LAH! .... so I had half my plate. And it was enough to send me into an immediate AFS state. AFS - After Food Syndrome where blood gets redirected to your digestive system and makes u REALLY sleepy.

Then we went for ice-cream sundaes at McDonalds with EXTRA fudge too!! *faint* (Looking down at bloated tummy but food always tastes better when you have great company)

Then Sunday came along and guess whats on the menu again! CARBS!! *Faint again*... thats it.. its a week of detox for me from this moment on. I have made a weightloss goal aim with a friend to reach 65kg by the end of October and I intend to keep it!

So what you see here was Sunday's dinner. Simple dishes to make too.

Sambal Ladies Fingers aka Okra.

What you need are the following:

2 large handfuls of ladies fingers *sliced diagonally*
2 tablespoons of sambal chili
1 tablespoon of light soya sauce
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
8 cloves of garlic *minced*
3 dashes of white pepper

Slow cook the garlic till fragrant, add in all the sauce & stirfry till the chili isn't giving you the sneezies, ie 1-2 mins*I always sneeze when frying sambal* then while the fire is still hot, throw in the ladies fingers & stir till relatively soft, takes about 5-8 minutes. Serve hot.

Then there was NOODLES!! *faint for the 3rd time* by popular request. So whats in this? Looks like normal instant noodles? It was, in a sense with a little more.

I didn't use the standard issue 5-6 pack instant noodles with pre-packed seasoning. I used those 12 plain noodles in a pack kind.

What I used are:
2 cubes of Knorrs chicken cube
4 pcs of dehydrated instant noodles
1 pack of hotdogs *chopped*
1 can of braised gluten (those brown blobs u see on the noodles)
30 sotong balls
4 eggs
4 dashes of white pepper
2 tablespoons of light soya sauce
1 tablespoon of sesame oil.

With boiling water, I threw in the chicken cubes, hot dogs, sotong balls & braised gluten & left it to boil for about 20 minutes. Scooped out the ingredients & used the soup to cook up the noodles & added the 4 eggs & stirred. Served the noodles & put all the toppings. Voila! Dinner!! *carbs - gag* but still quite yummy for the tummy...Enjoy!! No more heavy carbs for me this week. I may work out 6-7 times a week but its still no excuse to binge. :) Detox time!!
