Too much of a good thing

Sunday, May 03, 2015

After watching the kid play another soccer game, we let her choose dinner, and of course she chose her favorite Asian restaurant. And as usual, we ordered all her favorite dishes, along with a couple new ones to try. For 3 people: 2 appetizers and 5 main courses, so lots of leftovers for tomorrow.

My tracker input: a pile of Chinese broccoli, a smaller pile of regular broccoli, as well as some seafood and chicken, and very small amount of noodles. I love veggies, so to make it easier to resist the starch, I ate extra: about 700 grams of veggies in total. They were yum, but I think I over-achieved in filling up on veggies, because 4 hours later I am *still* stuffed. I'm probably going to wake up still stuffed, and tinged green as well!

    Stuffed with vegetables is sure better than being stuffed with ice cream and chips!

    Funny you should mention that about being tinged green. Back in my high school days, when everybody was just going crazy with eating disorders, one girl in my dorm ate only carrots on her quest to lose weight, and (this is true) her skin started to take on an orange-ish tone after a while. The dormitory mother intervened and put a stop to her all-carrot, off-the-charts-carotene consumption, and the girl soon returned to her normal complexion.

    Your story reminded me of that girl. But I've never heard of broccoli having the same effect as carotene, so maybe you don't need to worry about really turning green, dear Bemused.

    At least you were "stuffed" on veggies! emoticon

    Sounds like you had a fun family event, and planned well on not overdoing it. Enjoy all your left-overs. emoticon
