Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cucumber salad
Lunch: all-u-can-eat sushi
Dinner: falafels and baked trout
Amazingly, I have been sticking to my diet with relative ease except for the no caffeine and no booze thing. I had a lunch date with my friend Tracy to catch up on girl talk and I told her I NEED to eat Japanese food, as that is a no brainer for dining out in my situation. We went to my all time favourite sushi joint, Sushi Garden, but it was closed. So we headed a couple blocks west to Fish-On-Rice for their all you can eat lunch.
I am a little ashamed to admit that I am actually a fan of buffets. I know the quality is usually somewhat lacking, but there is something about being surrounded by food that gives me joy.
Here are the things that I could eat:
-Green salad with lemon juice and salt
-Gomae with no dressing
-Chicken Karage without the skin
-Grilled salmon belly and cheek
-Grilled samma (fish)
I was trying not to break my diet by sprinkling lemon juice and salt on my sashimi and salad instead of using soy sauce and dressing. But then, I thought, what the heck, soy sauce is not going to kill me. I was anticipating the delectable combination of the sweetness of fresh salmon with the saltiness of soy sauce, but to my horror.....I didn't like it.
I thought the soy sauce tasted sweet and masked the taste of the fish. Note to self: the grass is always greener on the other side, until you get there.
