Breakfast: ?? nothing.
Lunch: a small serving of chao ga.
Snack: A few bites of raw green bell pepper. That was not fun to eat. Also, the last of those jam-filled cookies.
Dinner: egg rolls, lettuce, and vermicelli noodles, all doused in a special fish sauce mixed with sugar, garlic chili sriracha, and lime juice. delicious.
Later: some leftover nuts (also not fun). Some more bites of the bell pepper before I decide to nix it. Also some bites of the last bolilo I brought home to my family’s place. After reading about better plant-based diets, I decide to toss the bolilo.
Apparently eating more veggies can reduce levels of anxiety and depression? My therapist said to look into doing 70-80% plant-based. This sounds like a tall order, but might not actually be that bad. I just need to eat more quality plant-based stuff, limit the fake, processed plant-based stuff, and also limit red meat intake.
Some cool articles I’ve been reading regarding this:
Harvard Med. (the main one you should look at)
Nerd Fitness on healthy eating. (if you have a lot of time to kill)
