So the fried rice.
I cooked up my pretty standard fried rice recipe, and then I changed some stuff. If this was the only thing (or almost the only thing) I ate yesterday, it needed to have more range, nutritionally. So I added TVP (protein stuff), chopped sweet potato (for the yummy iron and whatnot), and chopped up sushi ginger (for stomach happy-ing properties) to the pan of rice.
When I served it I added some sweet chili sauce to the plate, and dipped the tines in it before scooping up the rice. I know it's a tricky dieter trick used for salad dressing and stuff, but I used it to try and keep from over spicing the rice. Just pouring it over top would have been too much, KWIM?
So the first time, right after I made it, I dished up about 3/4C of fried rice and ate it with a T of sauce. Then I took a nap. When I woke up I had another plate worth, about a cup and a half worth this time, with more sauce. An hour after I finished that (with my stomach not totally clear on the whole "this is good/ bad" thing) I dished up about another cup-full and nommed it slowly.
I think it's fair to say I'm full now. The hungry was nice, and the eating was too, but wow that was a lot of food. I'll have to spread it out more today. When I nommed it, my throat tightened up with each bite. It's kinda freaky. I think it's because I'm nervous about my stomach getting unhappy with the stuff I'm putting in it, and that's what's making it tough to swallow.
But it was yummy.
And I have a pile of it left, like a full half-wok-worth.
Oh, yeah- i'll try to get the spreadsheet updated today, but no promises. :)
