Lets Eat… With our Eyes

 

Hello everyone!

Just one more day until the weekend!!!
Today is all about food. I’ve been cleaning up my diet, and not only do I look better, but I feel a lot lighter, and full of energy. After eating dinner of grilled vegetables and Chinese yams last night I got a crazy burst of energy around 8pm. All I can say is that my boyfriend is a trooper. I was bouncing off of the walls like a 2 year old. Jumping up and down for no reason. Trying to break dance in the middle of our living room, and forcefully making him make-out with me. Lol I have to love myself. I can’t imagine what other people think about me. Good thing I don’t really care what others think and say. I truly march to my own drum.
Time to Eat
Lets start with my lunch yesterday. I love exploring China Town in San Francisco. About a year ago I found Vietnamese Restaurant named Golden Star. The food is authentic, the atmosphere is authentic, it’s cheap and I enjoy every bit of it. If you are ever in Chinatown check out this hidden gem. It’s usually always packed with Vietnamese natives. I suggest the shrimp stick appetizer, 5 spiced chicken, Beef Curry, Pho and the mixed vegetables & tofu over noodles.

Farro Salad
I made this salad on 4th of July and it was a hit. It’s a very very simple yet tasty recipe.

Ingredients:
A few Sweet peppers
1 green pepper
3-4 green onions
1 cup of faro
Feta cheese

Cook faro using these directions: 

Sauté green onion in olive oil

Add peppers and sauté for 4-5 minutes

Create a hole in vegetables and add faro
Mix evenly and constantly stir mixture for 5-10 minutes, browning farro
Season to taste with salt and pepper, remove from stove and add feta cheese.
Enjoy!!!
Now that I know I’m going to see Jay Z and Justin I am super motivated to keep my diet as clean as possible. I’ve been enjoying a meals of only vegetables and I must say I love it. Not only are they tasty but I get an energy burst after each meal. This is what I came up with last night

Broccli, mushrooms, sweet pepers, shishito peppers, corn, white onion, green onions, Chinese yams

I hope you enjoyed all the food
Have a great Thursday
