19.05.2014 – It’s Monday again. Was feeling very blue as I had to rush to work and didn’t get to prep my lunch the night before. Nonetheless, Day 9 was a successful eat clean day 😀
#Day 9 Eat Clean Breakfast: Overnight Oats with Raisins & Strawberries
Since the start of this eat clean challenge, I picked up liking overnight oats with fruits for breakfast. It’s easy to prep and delicious.
OVERNIGHT OATS WITH RAISINS & STRAWBERRIES
½ handful of raisins
1 cup rolled oats (I’m using quick cook oats)
1 cup low fat milk
Combine everything in a bowl. Mix well and transfer into an airtight container. Keep in refrigerator for at least 6 hours to 24 hours.
#Day 9 Eat Clean Lunch: Micro-Veggies & Egg
I fell asleep and totally forgotten about packing lunch for Day 9. Woke up slightly later than usual and rushed to get ready to work. Well, I managed to grab the leftover veggies (cauliflower and french beans) from Week 1, tomatoes and an egg.
During lunch time, I combine all the veggies into the glass container and heat them up in the microwave and top with soft-boiled egg and fresh tomatoes. Quick, simple and delicious. Teehee..
#Day 9 Eat Clean Dinner: Micro-Chicken with Stir-Fried Kailan
For dinner, I wanted to try the Buzzfeed chickpeas salad but I end up cooking this Kailan because it was turning yellow already. Had to throw half away coz they wilted! OMG so fast even tho kept in fridge. *sigh* Also, I made a batch of lemon marinated Micro-chicken (recipe here) for the week.
1 bunch of Kailan
½ micro-chicken breast (recipe here)
½ medium carrot, sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
a pinch of salt
freshly ground pepper
chili powder **optional**
- Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until slightly brown. Add carrots and cook for almost a minute, until softened. Add in Kailan, this shouldn’t cook more than a minute.
- To serve, cut chicken and place on top of the veggies and served with a dash of chili powder.
