Ok here's one of my problem when I'm on atkins. I had this syndrome that love to chew all the time, like a rabbit!! Hehe.. If I didn't chew I'll be like zombie that don't have enough energy, lazy, weak with that smelly breath… :P , So to overcome the starving I had these…
- Boiled Egg of course
This is the simplest and the safest finger food to eat. But I'm pretty sure all of you already feel bored with it. Ya I know!! Me too… however, I'll try to make it interesting to eat, by making it impressive! And as a malaysian, we love spicy food.. So I had it with my homemade sambal bilis… my all time favourite!
- Fried Anchovies
I love this and it is the best finger food as this is relatively cheap. All you need is just anchovies and fry it. If you want more taste to it, simple add bird eye chilies or onion. Drain the oil properly and make sure to let it cool for a little bit just to keep it crispier. You can store this in normal room temperature and when you are hungry just grab salad or oopsie bread to eat with it or maybe just eat it like that.
- Miang Kham
Alrite, this is something unusual! Well, since my backyard have plenty of this betel leaves, I decided to make fully use of it.. Hehe! However it is best to eat immediately as the leaf still fresh and green. So what is miang kham? Ok, here's from wiki … hehehe!
Miang kham is a traditional snack from Thailand and Laos. It is often sold in the street, with the ingredients wrapped separately in small plastic bags. The name "miang kham" translates to "eating many things in one bite".
So normally miang kham would have 7 side dishes that have all combination taste like sweet, sour, salty, spicy, crunchy and creamy. Unfortunately for atkins we are not allowed to have sweet stuff, right? but I substitute it with other sauce and it does taste superb and tasty. I'll share my version of recipe in the next post.
- Cucumber and Celery Stick.
Hmm, this is too common but it is cheap and easy. Just cut it in stick form and eat it with kew pie mayo sauce. Simple and easy and most importantly less carbs!!
- Tao Kae Noi Crispy Seaweed
Well, this is a very popular finger food in Malaysia maybe because its available everywhere and you don't have to cook. Easy peasy! I love the original flavor compared to others and i always keep it by my side. When I travel I make sure this is a "must have" snack in my car. However to consume this every day is a bit pain in the ass cos its quite pricey. But of course you won't eat this everyday.. Hahaha!
Hi everyone! I was call to write something today and I want to share and let it out. Well, I've been doing Atkins diet for quite sometimes. And to be honest, sometimes I lost the battle and sometimes I had a glorious success! But when I succeed, I faced another problem which is I'M TOO OVER CONFIDENCE! Then there's a little devil in my head keep on whispering something like this to me, " I DID GREAT WITH ATKINS BEFORE, I HAVE NO PROBLEM TO LOSE WEIGHT AGAIN!".. And yes, I'll be absolutely "TERRIFIC" after that!
Now I'm back slightly to my original scale. Back to square one.. Ting.. Ting..ting! And I have to start all over again, and guess what, there's an old friend of mine "Miss Attitude" which always advise me to do this, "I'LL START TOMORROW","I GET BACK TO IT LATER" and so on… Hehe… So out of misery, I did a little research and I've been searching the root cause to my problems and finally I found it. I believe everyone is facing the same problem like me. Haha maybe, I guess!
My turning point of my life happened when I changed my job location. It does affect my daily routine and lifestyle. One of the key factor is TIME. With the new atmosphere, I always skipped my breakfast, sometimes I had a late lunch and sometimes I had a combo meal like lunch plus dinner. All because of I don't have TIME for a decent meal to myself except on weekends. Same goes to my exercise routines, I used to have ZUMBA class every Tuesday and SWIMMING day on Thursday. But since I'm far away from those point, I always missed or late due to traffic jam and any other possible interference. I'm a bit upset with this changes and the saddest thing is I've to deal with it! Unless I change my career..
Oh Nooooo!! :) I'm too dramatic don't you think? Well, as devastated as I could be, I'll try to list down what are the possible things that I can do to keep my life back in track. As I realize there's only one thing for sure.. no one in this world can change my look, my body, my health except ME! Yes ME!! I'm the only one who can change it.. If I wanted a healthier, fitter and remarkable me.. I need to do something about it and move on and continuously keep moving on.. This is not only for me today, but also for a better me in the future. Insya Allah.. Amin…
To my dear atkiners, please do support me throughout this journey okay….. :) thanks for your support.. xoxo
