Hi, my name is Min and I think I am slightly obsessed with food.
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved food. My closer circle of friends know that nothing excites me more than thinking and planning my next meals. Please don’t judge me or my life goals. You see, my grumpiness and grouchiness often stems from the fact that I have yet to have my basic needs met. I hate it when I am either starving or sleepy. I won't hide the fact that I once drove my colleagues up the wall when I did a juice cleanse. They hatched a plan to replace all my green juice bottles with fries, chips and rice in hopes of getting rid of the hangry - hungry and angry - monster in me.
I often wonder what will become of me if I lose the ability to eat or lose all access to food. Jia can testify that I used to carry a small container of Honey Stars cereal in my bag. I need a backup plan cause being hungry is never, ever part of the plan. And just to make sure that we are clear on food insecurities, I have a head of fresh broccoli in my bag as I write this post… Well, it brings much needed comfort to know that I have free access to food whenever I need it. Yes, I am obsessed with food and this is why November's favourite pins are dedicated to food. Because, why not? Food makes the world go round! Pun intended.
Onsen Tamago with Rice
Min: Oh, what I would give to indulge in a bowl of rice right now. I often say I can easily eat several bowls of rice. And now, I am ashamed to admit that I am not sure I can actually eat it without allowing the guilt to get to me before the fat rolls grows on me. What did rice do to deserve so much hate from the world of strict diets? Surely a bowl of rice can’t cause that much harm right? My dad loves rice and he often pairs white rice with a drizzle of dark soy sauce and top off the salty goodness with a perfectly fried egg. Yum! So, as a huge fan of rice, I say we eat rice for every meal. After all, rice is life.
