New Eating Regimen

To cut back on spending, I've been trying to eat at home whenever possible. Okay, so it's only been 2 days, but it's a start. For posterity's sake, here's what I ate for breakfast, dinner, and snacks today:

Breakfast (eaten just before departing for school at 12:30pm):
  • 2 eggs fried in olive oil on 2 slices of white bread
  • 1 tiny yogurt (Yoplait!)
  • 2 cups of coffee (a treasure from home -thanks, Dad & Mom) 
  • 1 very large cucumber, sliced into half moons
  • a generous slab of tofu topped with delicious sesame oil
  • 1 Korean pear (a cross between an apple and jicama)
  • 1 small box of mango juice
  • 1 serving of insta-rice (just microwave and eat -no water to add!)
  • 2 packages of dried seaweed, a.k.a. laver
  • several handfuls of puffed wheat
  • 1 red apple
  • Pepsi Nex (2 bottles which I purchased from the convenience store in my school's building; Pepsi Nex = Pepsi Max)
Am still feeling hungry. Go figure.


  1. Thank you, Bridget! :) Your food sounds very interesting... I think you'll feel more full if you get some fat in there! Avocado maybe?

  2. Have you ever tried seaweed with saltine crackers? I think it's delicious.

    I'm glad to hear you are eating healthily (and cheaply). When you are thinking about tattooing reminders of turning on burner/turning it off/etc. (as I'm sure you must be - such sterling advice doesn't come every day!), it is important to keep your body as healthy as possible.

    What I'm most curious about is the culture. Have you noticed a marked difference between Korea and America? I know you're in the big city, but just how wide is that good ol' culture gap?
