Here’s a Chinese New Year Resolution you might consider…eating your main meal at lunch, and eat lighter at night!
This makes total sense and has so many positive health benefits from everything I’ve read. No matter what diet you’re on, you could benefit from eating your main meal at lunch.
As they say, Eat like a King for breakfast, a prince at lunch and pauper for dinner. Another says, Big Lunch, Small Dinner Plan.
1. Eating the main meal during lunch gives us more time to digest instead of going to bed with a full tummy.
2. For a blogger like myself, it gives me more time to videotape.
3. Lunchtime provides more natural light to videotape.
4. I’m not rushing home from my evening walk and feeling pressure with time constraints to prep and cook.
Anyone doing this? Share in comments if this swap works out better for your digestion or other reason?
Ha, ha, we’ve had pescatarian for last 3 days, not intentionally but just happened.
The usual stir fry process: hot wok, add oil (avocado or grape seed), add garlic & ginger. Cook vegetables first, take out, then use same steps for protein.
Vegetables were Baby Yu Choy or Choy Sum, the name I grew up calling them. Had some snow pea tips and cubed a baby Bella. This is the size between a bell pepper and mini sweet pepper.
Wild caught shrimp were so delicious and tasted of the ocean vs farm raised, what a difference.
Salmon skin came out juicy, golden and crispy, yay. Both were fried in my cast iron wok and Iwatani gas stove setup with just a sprinkle of Celtic sea salt. If you want crispy anything, dry off well with paper towels before frying.
I’ll keep you posted of our results.
