Day 12: Peanut Day


Breakfast was a yogurt parfait. I made it once before last week, but this time I added some honey and vanilla extract to the yogurt to sweeten it up a bit. This time around, it tasted much better (mostly because of the sweetened yogurt, but also because I remembered to layer it this time).


Lunch was leftover chilli. Like most chilli, leftover chilli > freshly made chilli. I still probably wouldn’t make it again though because it wasn’t rich enough (I think that there were too many vegetables in it).

The afternoon snack was pears and peanuts (not pictured). I liked it, but I like pears and almond butter better.


Dinner was fish with bok choy and peanuts. I didn’t particularly like it. First of all, the recipe had some mistakes. The pictures showed lemons, but the recipe didn’t mention anything about lemon. I added some lemon slices as shown in the picture. In addition, it took more like 30 minutes, not 18 minutes, to cook the fish and steam the vegetables. The tamari sauce was good, but I didn’t think there was enough of it.

The night snack was hot chocolate (not pictured). I decided to make it using a different recipe. I liked it a little better than the buzzfeed version because it’s a bit sweeter. It has about the same amount of calories.

Final thoughts: I probably wouldn’t make any of today’s dishes again. 2 more days of the challenge! All I can think of is what I’m going to eat on Sunday 🙂
