I was feeling a little under the weather yesterday; was feeling that a cold and sore throat were about to attack me but I think my defense system is fighting those bugs very well. I’m feeling better now. I had the usual headache, bodyache and slight chills throughout the day. The mil had gone to Ipoh so I delegated the masak-mask task to Sherilyn, who’s still enjoying the last day of SPM-so-no-school holiday.
I told Sherilyn that I wanted to eat ‘clean’ and healthy food as my throat hurts. For lunch, she whipped up something new – Gyeran Mari (Korean egg roll) with chopped carrots, purple onions, scallions and shredded leftover KFC breast meat.
She was supposed to roll up the Korean egg roll with seaweed and rice, to create something like sushi but the rolling part didn’t turn out that well, so the girls had just the egg roll with rice.
The egg roll was so yums that I had quite a big serving. I only had sugar-free skinny yoghurt with Tualang honey and pistachios for breakfast along with some fruits and was feeling famished by lunch time.
Sherilyn used 9 eggs for the egg roll.
The egg roll turned out beautifully and it’s keto-friendly, delish plus wholesome. Preparation can be pretty time-consuming though, as a lot of chopping is involved.
The ingredients of this Korean egg roll are similar to that of Foo Yong omelette but when it’s rolled up and sliced up, it has a restauranty edge.
For dinner, she Googled for an easy-to-cook chicken recipe and cooked pan-fried chicken drumsticks with soy sauce, Teriyaki sauce, ginger, sesame seed oil and mirin (substituted with rice wine). Another lip-smacking dish and everything was polished off by her sisters and one for Maria, our part-time helper of 7 years.
I felt absolutely blessed that despite feeling shitty the whole day, I have a daughter who was more than willing to help cook two meals yesterday. What a load off my achy body! Today is the last day of school and for the next 5 weeks, I am certain there’s going to be lots of activities in the kitchen again! 🥰
By the way, my weight dropped further to 43.6 kg today after just 2 days of not eating well. This is my pre-babies / teenager weight and for once after 16 years, I’ve finally achieved this weight through Intermittent Fasting based on circadian rhythm / Time Restricted Eating and intensified exercise. The best way for me to lose weight rapidly is when I’m sick but with the long holidays and festive season coming too soon, I’m sure the numbers on the scale will climb up rapidly again. Never mind, I’ll exercise more intensely in 2020 😊
