I need to start photo-reporting my foods again!

inshallah I will start making photo-reports again regularly. It seems like when I am really working out, I spend less time online so I get lazy to update. I mean, its a good thing to spend less time online but I need to keep updating my blog regularly because it is a record of my journey that I can look back on and I would love to help motivate someone as well inshallah.

so here is the latest thing I have made:

Soba Noodle Salad:

around the house 006

soba noodles are Japanese buckwheat noodles and are yummy eaten cold in a salad like this Mashallah. I basically made the tofu and the peanut sauce from this meal I made previously from:

Sesame Tofu with Peanut Sauce

(its the last thing I mention in that blog post)—so I made the tofu, and the peanut sauce (with the changes like I mentioned on that blog post), then diluted about 1/2 of the sauce with water and poured on and mixed with the soba noodles (I made enough noodles for 3 generous servings—boiled, drained, and dunked in ice-cold water to make them springy and chilled) and sliced cucumbers, carrots and thinly sliced spring onions. I also added Japanese Shichimi seasoning (chili powder blend) and crushed sesame seeds. then I had the tofu on the side (I took this photo before adding the tofu)

yumm yumm yumm!!
