Healthy Lunch According To UnkaLeong

I've nothing much to blog about in the culinary avenue. Well, actually, I did have lunch at Chynna on Tuesday with fellow food blogger, Jackson, but I wasn't armed with camera, etc, (I am definitely not a hardcore food blogger in that respect), so I shall rely on his review and pics. And on Wednesday, I lunched at Delicious with legendary Boolicious, and that lunch complete with pics has already been posted by Ms Efficient herself.

Having had two consecutive days of unhealthy filling lunches, yesterday, I thought I'd go healthy (ier) and actually, intended to skip lunch altogether, and hoped that my eggs and toast at breakfast would see me through dinner. Now, if food is the coal that keeps the furnace going, then well, this is one big fat furnace here, so it stands to reason that the eggs and toast had vanished by about 2pm. ( yes, I have a slow metabolic rate). Unkaleong was online, and WHO better to get healthy food tips from than the guy who can display a six pack on his blog page for all and sundry to see, ogle, admire or go EUGH. I asked him what would be a good, non fattening, filling, low calorie snack .....and his brilliant reply, "Fruit". I coulda told you that. Anyway, of course, being in BANGSAR, there are no fruit stalls that sell cut fruit..... so I had to track all the way to the nearest supermarket, Village Grocer, where they sell cut fruit, probably fruit that's about to go bad. I was quite pleased to note that they had my two favourites. Rockmelon (which I normally can't afford) and Mango, both at RM1.80 per tub. (those disposable round tubs).





Anyway, ya, that was suitably filling, though it did occur to me, calorie wise, it CANT possibly have been low calorie. All that sugar...a diabetic certainly would not have been allowed to consume those fruits. Sigh, why has mother nature made it so hard for us.

On a separate note, this morning, after breakfast, I was approached by this lady, who asked me if I was so and so.....turns out she's Sam from Eat Drink Man Woman, and she said she recognised me from the chin. Is that even possible? HAHAHA. Turns out she also saw my pics in the Wilton Alma Mater, in ICCA.

It's simple sugar lah, the sugar found in most fruits. Fructose. Easier to break down ;)

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

if u wan to avoid the "sugar"..eat the so call healthier 1s..avoid melons for one..eat those wif higher fibre contents and loaded wif vit c..imagine papaya n oranges?

fatboybakes said...

unless i pack from home, i'm at the mercy of whatever they sell at village grocer, ready cut.

damn effective though, the mango rockmelon combo. had to pangsai immediately. (not that i ever have a problem).

Sam said...

you looked abit freaked by the whole thing. i was being facetious when i said i recognised u from yr chin!

when i left the shop,the lady boss asked me "so you know..him" and when i explained how, she said "oh-oh, he's getting faammous..."

I was told if wanna go on fruit diet, choose watermelon cos it's full of juices and it makes you full very fast. Never try it though.

babe_kl said...

see who is the famous celeb now?? haha so glam lagi wanna eat healthy :p

Tummythoz said...

Oh my, tried to go on fruits for lunch before. Yeah, felt full. For 45min max. Then carvings hit sky high.
Didn't I told ya your masculine chin very recognisable?
So gonna take out pic in profile-liau?

Timothy said...

Gosh .. if I had fruits for lunch, I've been shivering by 3pm (tried before) so I am never gonna do it .. ever again.

So, recognizable chin eh ... that's called a prominent chin. I am beginning to wonder which part of me is prominent ... my tummy?

wmw said...

I like eating fruits....especially when it's clean and cut up by someone! hee hee...

audreycooks said...

I actually thot your chin photo is very recognisable. Not many ppl have that chin. hahahah

Jackson said...

if u wan to go on fruits diet, u should try out on 3 types of frit a day but alwiz remember that the portion should be less because anything over-taking will not b good

fatboybakes said...

jackson, whoever said anything about going on a fruit diet...having fruits for one lunch hardly constitutes a fruit diet.

audreycooks...you mean a fat double chin? yup.

wmw - my my, quite the duchess arent we.

timothy, pleeez la, if YOUR tummy is recognizable, mine must be a billboard.

tummythoz, guffaw...masculine chin?!!!

babe-kl...being recognised by ONE person hardly makes one a celeb!!! hahahah. celebs are those featured in star, flavours, appetite, etc.

precious pea, it's like drinking water. doesnt last.

sam, heh heh, yes, i know. how come our wilton photos are accessible to all and sundry one ah?

Sam said...

not accessible to all and sundrylah... only to the distinguished alumnus of ICCA who have the photobucket password oni.. don't worrrry....
btw, the boss ladies at ICCA were talking so much abt what the life of the party you are, I became curious.

The Expedited Writer said...

That looks like a verrrrry healthy lunch to me. :)

I once had a miserable slice of aussie rockmelon with some miserable morsels of parma ham (yummy but stingy portions) at Buonasera Italian restaraunt in SS2. RM28! Chi sin... but it looked too good to pass up. More worth it if buy own melon and parma ham, man! Some how the sweet melon went damn well with the salty ham. Go make your own! :)

Rasa Malaysia said...

Aiya, you no listen to Unkaleong lah, fruit? Fruit la mer is better any time. By the way, I just left a comment on leng chai Jackson's blog, can I get a supplementary card from you ar? Wah, 50% off, can jimat a lot...you know la, US$ is shrinking value with every blink of my eyes. Sigh. BTW, I am very curious to know about Eest at The Westin, it was featured on some ang moh's travel magazines in the US...can do some recon work for me ar?
