While I still take a little break during the weekend (though mostly to run errands), the weekdays are crazy moments for me. But after learning my lesson when I was abroad in Japan (yielding a lot of health issues), I refuse to feed myself anymore crappy foods (aka sugary, over-processed, and assembly-line produced products) anymore. It took me at least 2 years to stabilize my health again, so I am very careful with what I put inside my body.
Despite all the craziness, one can still cook homemade meals. You just need to do the bulk of your supermarket shopping once and twice a week and store all the produces in the fridge. No excuse. So even though it is a Wednesday night, I still had some Chinese okra, lotus, and mung bean sprouts in the fridge. Going through my creative mindset, I made a quick stir-fry and created a Buddhist Delight sautee dish.
It is funny. It took like 30 minutes to prep and cook, but 10 minutes to eat. I should prolongate my chewing to savor my hard labor…just too bad I am such a fast eater, which is not very healthy, too.
