6 Day Body Makeover: Day 5

Day 5.

One more day and I’ll be done! So short, but at least, I’ll have one week under my belt.

I must hold back on the caffeine because it’s making it difficult to fall asleep at the end of the day so I’ll need to find something else to stop that 4-5 PM sluggishness.

Food Plan

  • Brunch: 3 egg whites “custard” (with dried shrimp and Shiitake mushrooms), 1/2 cup steamed rice, and 1 cup peach yogurt
  • Snack 1:  2 baked “taquitos” with chili sauce and guacamole and 1 cup  soy milk
  • Snack 2: 1 blood orange
  • Dinner: 3 seafood dumplings, 2 mu-shu pork rolls, 1/4 plate of tofu pillows and veggies, 1 bowl steamed rice, and 1/2 red bean pancake with ginger ice cream, orange slices, and kiwi (Eating Out)

I had 2 snacks before dinner today because brunch was at noon and I was having a late dinner (8PM). It just makes sense to eat when you’re hungry and not when you’re not hungry. If you’re not sure if you’re hungry or thirsty, drink something first and if you still feel hungry, then eat something. Starving yourself won’t help you in the long run.

Anyways, back to the food…the egg white custard didn’t look as pretty as I’d like because the air bubbles got trapped as I was steaming it. Still it was light, smooth, and savory.

What are these “taquitos”? I’ve been craving some Mexican food and one of my faves are taquitos. Due to cookware constraints (I don’t have anything big enough for deep-frying) and lack of motivation to walk two blocks to a landmark Mexican fast food place, I opted to drive to the grocery store. (Strange, but bear with me) I stocked up on ingredients for my own version of taquitos…healthier…and so delicious.

Here’s the recipe to make about 12 taquitos (they last pretty well in the fridge or freezer):

  • 2 oz. pork tenderloin (cut into 6 medallions or whatever you want)
  • 1 package of wheat Lavash flatbread (4 large sheets) or tortillas
  • 0.7 oz. or larger of hummus
  • hot sauce or chili sauce for heat (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Add some salt and pepper to the pork medallions. Sear the medallions on both sides. Stick it in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until done. If you poke it, it will feel stiff. Let cool and chop into pieces or “pull” to make pulled pork. Mix in some chili sauce (optional).
  2. Take a sheet of Lavash and spread a thin even layer of hummus.
  3. About 1/2″ in from the edge and place a line of pork. Roll the sheet towards the center. After two “rolls” slice off the “taquito” and place in a baking dish.
  4. Repeat until all are completed. (You can stop here or continue to the next step for a crunchy crust)
  5. Bake for 3-5 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. Serve with salsa, guacamole, or bean dip.

Exercise Plan

I had planned to do P90X Yoga X but I got sidetracked and my friend stopped by for a chat and dinner. I’ll just workout tomorrow…no big deal.

Here are some of today’s dishes…I do my best to make them as visual appealing and as tasty as possible. Who wants to eat food that tastes like cardboard?

*Please don’t steal these photos, I took them myself and I’m very proud of how they turned out. At least email me and link back to this site if you’re going to use them.
