Today is a Wineless Wednesday. Boo-hoo.
I haven’t had wine in a while. In fact it’s been a whole week since I’ve been outside of my house! It’s difficult to be patient when all you want to do is be able to do the things you could before – like put my socks on by myself! 😉
Tuesday Food Journal
Yesterday was interesting. I know that I shouldn’t be eating as many calories as I am when I’m not moving much. I think planning my next meal keeps me out of boredom, but is also a little too obsessive. Today is a new day! I’ve been walking around a lot and getting up is much easier than it has been.
1 piece whole wheat toast with peanut butter and 10 choc chips – This is normally a nice little treat for me, but since I can’t just leave the house for work and forget about it, I let that PB and chocolate call my name all day long. A plus about working outside the home – not having time or the ability to grab “seconds” for breakfast.
Leftover Santa Fe Chicken on brown rice with a half of a 100-calorie pack Wholly Guacamole, sprinkle of cheese and dollop of Greek Yogurt.

My husband brought home takeout from Nha Sang. This is probably the fourth time we’ve ordered takeout from Nha Sang this year. We’ve loved everything we’ve ordered! I wouldn’t call it Chinese, because they have other Asian foods as well, but this place stands out as the best we’ve had. Get ye South of the River and try some!
Last night, Rob brought home the
Squash Dumpling (6) $4.97
Home made Dumpling. Filled with tossed Yellow Sweet Squash with green onions. Steamed first and stir fried with a garlic sauce. Love it!!
And love it, we did! There is so much flavor in these. We split them and each ate three. I wish I would have taken photos, but never take photos of takeout. Why? I have no idea!
For my meal, I ordered (not knowing Rob would order the other dumplings as appetizers):
Tibetan Traditions Momo (Dumpling)
Tibetan dumpling, lean chopped beef, steamed momo served with House salad and spicy sauce.
While I’ve had Momo at another restaurant before, I was intrigued that this was listed in the Noodle Dish section. I was curious about the house salad and the fact that it was in a noodle/entree category. However, it came with the spicy sauce, but no salad. In my opinion, 8 dumplings with a side of sauce should be listed as an appetizer or a large side dish.
It’s okay, though. Five of these babies along with the squash dumplings filled me up. If you order these, try the dumplings by themselves before dipping them in the sauce. The meat mixture has incredible flavor. While the spicy sauce is excellent, it can mask the flavors of the momo themselves. I love the chewy texture of these dumplings.
*Don’t worry, next time we get Nha Sang take-out, I’ll take photos and we’ll review all the dishes we’ve had there. You can find healthy options as well. I’ve had spring rolls, soup and salad from this place with more flavor than you can imagine!
We found this stuff over the holidays and Rob adores it on top of ice cream!
2 Tbsp Honey Peanut Butter with 1 Tbsp Chocolate Chips – Yes, I did this for the second time in one day. And each time, my stomach didn’t feel so great about a half hour later. Note to self so that I don’t do it again!
South Beach Whipped Choc Almond Snack Bar
I’ve been craving baked goods. What’s up with this sugar thing lately? I’ve got plenty of fruit in the fridge! I’m testing myself today, so stay tuned tomorrow to find out how…
