In the morning, I ate something random. I can't remember what I ate. This is gonna be one of those real time blogs where I type things as I think of them, and I'll leave it be. I'm good at real time strategy, so why not real time writing?
I can't remember what I ate in the morning. I may have eaten nothing. I ate some carrots yesterday and I ate them at the table. I never bothered putting them back in the fridge so they're just sitting there. I still haven't put them back in the fridge. They're still good to eat.
I drank some soymilk from the fridge. I didn't even use a cup. I'm the only one who drinks soymilk in the house so that's okay, right? Probably a bad habit. People don't come over so this should be fine. I drank that soymilk real good, it felt so smooth going down my throat. Oh yah. That soymilk was mighty cold and refreshing, perfect for those multivitamin fulfilling capacities that the human body craves.
I remember I was trying to finish the carton of almond milk first before I got to the soymilk cartons because the almond milk I bought as a special 3 pack for a discount price. The last time I tasted almond milk I thought it was okay but when I tasted it recently it tasted really bad. It's only good in really small amounts with my special spelt flake cereal. The almond milk was gonna expire soon. The almond milk expired 3 days ago before I finished it off. A lot of people think "best by (date)" means it's gonna give you food poisoning but I recently learned that's a misconception. Most of those dates are kind of guesses and are for the company to remove themselves from liability from any food poisoning you get. There were at least 4 cups worth of almond milk, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, just finish off that almond milk. I lost the cap to the almond milk carton so it was kind of sitting open mouthed for a while. Yesterday I found a dead fly while trying to clean up some sticky soy sauce in the fridge and I have this fear the fly somehow violated the almond milk. The fly had a jade color. I have no qualms. I had more problems though.
When I grabbed onto the soymilk the morning after I finished the almond milk, I noticed how light the soymilk was. At first, I thought I had already opened up the soymilk carton but it's been weeks before I've drunken soymilk and you know how the labels say to drink one week after opening. When I opened up the cap, I was expecting the little plastic seal with a ring around that's just large enough for your index finger but too big for your thumb to pull the thing off but it wasn't there. I sniffed a little, and I even tasted some, trying to decide whether or not it was good to drink or not. It tasted a little lemony, but overall fine. The soymilk had been salvaged.
The soymilk was delicious.
I have another carton too, thankfully i hadn't opened that carton. I make sure to buy the unsweetened kind of soymilk, it tastes sweet enough as it is. I enjoy soymilk for its nutrients and taste.
I gave up normal milk for some of those reasons. At some point I made the transition from 2 percent milk to skim milk, to soymilk. The last time I drank milk was months, maybe 5 months ago and it tasted like sugar water to me. I remember I used to drink way too much milk when I was really young, maybe 5 cups worth. Milk's a little overrated in its nutritional benefits. It has cholestrol and fat and stuff. Skim milk's okay and milk is generally okay but it's not anything amazing. That's the end of my milk talk.
When I ate something else, it tasted great. I can't remember what I ate though. I probably felt full from yesterday's food, but from this blog title viewers were expecting to read about what I ate today, in the now. I guess today's food will become tomorrow's food, and who really cares about how yesterday's food tasted like anyway? It probably didn't taste. Wait, I remember.
I ate some of this seaweed soup with rice. I had some tofu and I just chopped it up into blocks. I don't bother with the cutting board. I try to deal with going in with some cutting maneuvers while the tofu is still in its plastic container, that way I don't have to deal with rinsing off the cutting board. I plopped the seaweed soup+tofu into the pot and I got it to a boil. I added some rice and yum. The food was okay, but I do know the seaweed soup has a lot of oil added into it. I ate it all though. I stayed pretty full for the rest of the day.
Today I watched something related to seaweed actually. It was about the concerns of MSG and the creator went into depth about the history of MSG. A Japanese scientist was researching something about the practice of chefs adding seaweed into their dishes and what he found that gave seaweed its flavor was something called L-glutamate.
After the seaweed stuff, I ate five of these ginger hard candies. They were good, probably shouldn't have eaten so much though. I need to balance my life more with vegetables and fruits.
I still felt hungry though so I ate a ton of oats and added some soymilk to them. I first got into oats because they were wheat free, high in fiber, and it lowers your cholestrol like those cheerios.
I remember there was a commercial on Kids WB for Cheerios. You had that little animated bee saying something about why kids love the taste of Cheerios until Frankenstein walks in. Then the bee spoons up some fresh cheerios and milk from a bowl and feeds the frankenstein. The frankenstein man gets all jovial and puts a thumbs up for his approval. Cheerios, tastes good and good for you.
There was some fish and more tofu that came my way so I ate that stuff too. I used to eat a lot more raw vegetables and fruits so I'm thinking I should get back into that. I've been really inconsistent with that sort of thing.
The foods I ate weren't adventurous, but I had a lot to say about milk. Next time I'll eat more healthy. Thanks for reading.
The post was too long because this is the last day of my life so i did not read it: I drank soymilk, ate seaweed soup with rice and tofu, ginger hard candies, and some fish with rice. It wasn't bad.
