I am training myself to be able to dine out with friends and family. PD invited me for lunch at Lugang Cafe in MOA. I told her as long as I can order vegetables, I am good.
Lucky me, they have several vegetarian dishes.
I chose the Stir-Fried Mushroom Noodles.
I loved it! Maybe for non vegans they can try the other noodle dishes.
Steamed Vegetable Dumplings.
PD ordered the Oyster Omelette
and Sweet and Sour Pork.
I was not even interested in the food PD ordered.
For dessert, PD had the Red Bean shaved ice.
The waitress already warned us that it is such a tall tower! Did we listen? No. Plus, I could not eat it because of the condensed milk.
My dessert was the Mango Shaved Ice!
YUM!!!! Delicious and not too sweet.
I am allowed fruits and fruit juices, so this dessert was right up my alley.
So now, I am happy I can still dine out with friends and family as long as I make the right choice of food.
What I like about the new diet I am following is that there is no calorie counting nor portion control.
For breakfast, it was honeydew melon
and oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon and I added dried Bing Cherries.
Cinnamon has special blood glucose lowering powers.
Dinner was just Salad with Black Grapes, Fuji Apple and Mango with no dressing.
I used the left over pomodoro sauce and just added sauteed chopped mushrooms. Then I toasted the rye bread and spread it on top.
I do not how what to call it, bruschetta or cheeseless pizza? Whatever name it is called, it does not matter because it tasted really delish!
Sometimes, I am surprised the vegetarian dishes I have been cooking taste better than cardboard. I am still in high spirits, positive that this lifestyle change will work for me. I am so happy my friends and family have been very supportive even if Yaya Hermie is not! Hahahahaha! She said it is not going to work and that I should stop what I am doing. But I will show her!!!
