Made air fryer fish tacos in honor of taco Tuesday yesterday. Topped them off with cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado, cotija cheese and a spicy jalapeño cilantro cream. I just ate the inside.

New recipes from polyester's vegan links... The White Bean Soup was delicious made from cassoulet Beans and chicken broth. Tweaked a bit here, as I'm a flexitarian. The beans were deliciously creamy and tender.

Mr. Sophie (the baker in the family) made these Blueberry chocolate Bars and loves them! They did not agree with me. While layered with wholesome ingredients - A little too rich and sweet for my new sleeve palette. However, I did enjoy some fresh blueberries along with him. Seems simple, basic and unconstructed food is what I tolerate and savor most. Ho hmmm. I fear Ms. Sophie has become a culinary BORE! LOL. But like ms.sss - I really do appreciate and enjoy the sights and smells of a more complex dish. 😜

I’m so excited, I finally mastered making corn tortillas! They aren’t low in calories, so my next step is making small ones. They are delicious.

Recipe?

Corn tortilla dissertation:

The thing is it’s really more about feel vs. a specific recipe. Humidity and other factors really change the amount of Water. It’s simply Masa flour, water and salt. (Some recipes call for no salt, no thanks) I used Gold Mine brand organic white masa. There wasn’t a recipe for tortillas on the bag and googling didn’t help much. Most call for 2 cups masa 1.5 cups warm water. That was WAY too much, so I scaled back to 1 cup and added by tablespoon until I got the the consistency I was looking for. It should feel like Play dough, and shouldn’t stick to the palm of your hand. Also, patience is a key factor. Corn flour absorbs water slower than wheat flour so you have to knead it for awhile and let it rest a bit.
I need to use a tortilla press, I failed miserably without one. Use a cut open ziploc freezer bag inside the press. Cook on hot cast Iron skillet 45-60 seconds per side. My dough got sticky halfway through so I just kneaded in a little more masa and it worked.

Rick Bayless has some great videos on YouTube that helped me a lot. Sorry this is so long, I have too much time on my hands and I’m excited I finally figured this out. It’s been a long journey of failures.

Which most likely means that this woman here is going to fail miserably. 😂

I didn't even know what that is before googling it, lol.

Had Drumstick ice cream cones on the brain, but settled for strawberries and vanilla whipped cream instead: 304 calories

Joke’s on me though, turns out the strawberries and cream were more calories than the Drumstick (which is 300 calories for a whole one). On the bright side for me, though, is that the strawberries were only 5g carbs vs. the 36g of the Drumstick)

Whatever. It was delicious 😋

So this gigantic salad is a whopping 52 calories for the entire thing, LOL. I ate it for both lunch and dinner.

At lunch it was just salad, but for dinner I also had a few pieces of sashimi (+200 cals) and about 2 tbsp of crab fat (+155 cals) and a glass of red wine (+172 cals)

Yesterday I went out for Korean bbq but sadly forgot to take pics :( I had about 3 ounces of meat and a big pile of kimchi. I didn’t do too well in regards to eating enough because that was all I ate the entire day.

For today my bf and I went to our usual Salvadorean spot. I order the grilled pork chop and steak skewer. Didn’t really make a dent either as you can see. I also had two bites of the pupusa on the right.

@MarvelGirl25 Your meals always look so awesome!

@ms.sss What is crab fat?

Tonight I had 2 of these: 2oz smoked pork loin with Frontera grill carnita marinade, a tablespoon of grilled corn, onions & peppers on a homemade corn tortilla. It took me about an hour to finish. It felt like so much food for about 400 calories.

Well that looks delicious, yum!

P.S. Crab fat is is the greenish guts inside a crab’s body cavity (also called Tomalley...you’ll find it in lobsters too). Its a liver-pancreas combo thing. It looks quite disgusting and most people i know wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. But I think it’s delicious, lol. Its also terribly high in cholesterol and not recommended to eat in large portions due the toxins and other filtered stuff in there. But yeah, still delicious 😂
