Oooooo I will try (a modified version of) this.

Does the sauce come ready made or can I skip the oyster part in a home recipe?

You could probably pick up a ready made one somewhere, but its better to make your own to tailor to your taste. And yeah, you can skip the oyster sauce (though it helps to thicken it a bit so it clings better to the tofu...maybe sub with a bit of cornstarch or xanthum gum)

I bet hoisin would be a good sub for oyster sauce :)

Honey glazed smoked salmon and broccoli florets. I baked them both in the oven. It was so yummy! I ate half for lunch and the half about 2 hours later.

Looks good! So simple yet satisfying. I like to maple glaze things

Unsolicited Tip Alert: Don't forget to add honey to the food log (if you are depending on it for tracking) if the salmon is in fact honey glazed. You'd be surprised how many cals honey adds 😭

I use "Mühlenhack" - that's basically the only fake ground beef that's good tasting to me. It looks like already bakes ground beef, e. g. brownish and crumbly.




The Garden Gourmet one has a realistic look (like raw ground beef) but it has "that typical taste" so to say and I didn't like it that much.




I've seen a new brand lately that also sells fake ground beef and burgers, also looking like the raw version but haven't tried it so far. Maybe I'm going to get it and add it to some kind of casserole as a layer but for testing purposes I might simply make it into patties and fry it in the pan. I don't want to ruin a whole casserole with a taste I don't like.


Thank you

Duck Breast Bao (I was too lazy to try to Peking it tonight...next time, I guess)




I ate 100g of just the Duck Breast with 2 tbsp of the sesame-ginger-garlic sauce: 282 calories.

Workday was as awful and stressful as I thought it would be with two of five people on vacation. Had a 19.5 h unintentional fasting window, one successful intervention, one not-that-successful intervention that lasted for ages, ate my sandwich and salad and a piece of the fruit. Now I'm beaten.

Whatever, it's sandwich time again since a pita package contains five pitas, my freezer and fridge are full, I want comfort food tonight anyway and I'm too lazy to whip up a Soup.

Here's a snap shot of the salad for tomorrow:

BAO buns: Its a steamed, yeast-leavened bread (of chinese origin). There are other versions from other cultures under different names. It’s very soft/spongy and fluffy, and totally delicious. Though I haven’t actually eaten any since surgery, the fam loves it.

I can’t think of a similar Western bread to compare to though...maybe someone out there could give an example?

Crammed in the bottom: red batavia salad, an egg, cucumber and leftover steamed broccoli. Crammed in the top Caesar Salad Dressing from yesterday's batch, canned tuna and chickpeas.

Here is aforementioned sandwich, btw.: pita, "Schnitzel", red batavia salad leaves, raw yellow onion, a bit of the Caesar dressing mixed with Tomato paste. Not a good picture, sorry.

It reminds me of injera.

kind of has that same taste and texture - although the injera we get around here is really flat, like a crepe - whereas I think those Bao Buns (if I'm thinking of the right thing) are puffy

Haven't gotten my hands on real injera in years (since I moved away from Frankfurt/Main in fact). I had some really good Moroccan corn bread lately I bought at a store near the clinic that does my follow up. ;)
