MIRACLE NOODLE, INDEED, delicious Even

So in my foray to HFLC eating, I’ve been meaning to try this noodle out of curiosity for the longest time. Being a SouthEast Asian, of course our culinary presentation is also bordering on noodles and endless carbs.

I chanced upon Miracle noodle it at a specialty grocery in Pacifica, and it sells for 3 bucks for one serving. Considering the price of this little carb wonder, I don’t mind paying for a 1 serving pack. Regular pasta/ vermicelli noodles come at about a fraction of a price but the carb content difference is fucking astronomical.

I tell myself, if I can pay 9-10 bucks for the phad thai in one sitting from our favorite local thai joint, then this is nothing, considering the carb content.

price carbs (per serving)
Regular Vermicelli 1.99 25 grams
Miracle Noodle 3.25 2 grams

2 WEEKS OF NO SUGAR, KNEE PAIN UPDATE

BEEN over two weeks out of sugar, but fully satiated with the fatty foods that I’m eating. Cheese is not really big but I am just so glad that for the most part of this new habit, I have taught myself to simply eat a very filling set of foods that I would not have otherwise be able to enjoy. freakin amazing.

the best fuckin part of it all? I lost  a substantial amount– quite alarmingly quick but I know it’s the water retention. 10 lbs of weight loss is a total feat that I have never experienced before and I am super glad I did.


as for the knee pain, it’s been really a literal pain, and I totally attribute it to the speedwalking that I did a couple days back, when I haven’t mastered my form.  little by little though, I’m totally getting healed. it sucks that I can’t bend my right knee, and for the most part my sex life has been a little rough because of it.  But I’m getting well. Whoohoo

Coconut flour cheddar muffins

cheddar muffins coconut flour 2
kinda biting onto a cheesy  biscuit.

The star of the show:

5 eggs +  1/2 cup coconut flour from my motherland (thanks Trader Joe’s for importing from the Philippines) 

1/2 stick butter 

350 degrees for 15 mins, and enjoy the warm and moist cheesy gooey mess straight from the oven

Mind you, a 1/2 cup of dry coconut flour is 21 grams of carbs s

Meal prep saturday: cheesecake and a messy cheesy cauliflower casserole

Recipe 1-cauliflower with carne molida and oaxaca cheese

Recipe#2 – my first ever cheesecake

Mistakes: (hubby tells me i always watch cooking videos but end up fucking up because of my innate need to experiment, a quality that I got from my mother.)

Overdid the crust using an entire 1/2 quarter cup of butter, should have used only 3 tablespoons.

Overdid the eggs too, used 3 instead of just 2.

After it was out it tasted like flan but now that its refrigerated, it turned out fuckin delicious.
