Bon Appetite!

Food Diary: 2nd of April, 2012

I’m quite nauseous this morning. Not sure what’s the reason for it though.
That’s a lie, I’m know what the reason for it is, but I’m just trying to forget it, because maybe then my nausea will disappear or at least reduce.

Edit: Friends and sweet strangers can solve a lot of things and with this my nausea was over and I could eat again. Hooray for good people!

Food:
– One bowl of low-fat yogurt with peach and muesli with raisins and apple. Threw away half. Bad Mich.
– One slice of whole-wheat bread with a mix of dark and white chocolate sprinkles
– One slice of whole-wheat bread with metworst
– One slice of whole-wheat bread with tuna salad
– Rice with teroi, a Surinamese vegetable, shrimps and lemonchutney
– One slice of toasted whole-wheat bread with corned beef and piccalilli sauce
– Half a slice of toasted whole-wheat bread with mustard cheese
– Half a slice of toasted whole-wheat bread with metworst

Drinks:
– One mug of cafe au lait with soy milk. Forgot to sweeten it and didn’t have any time for it anymore this morning, so also with this part of my breakfast I threw away half of it.
– One cup of hot chocolate. Free coffee machine for the win!
– One glass of clear lemonade, grenadine flavour
– Four mugs of Japanese cherry green tea
– One glass of pineapple-guava juice

My Chai Tea Latte

Ever since my niece started to update her Facebook statuses continually with “drinking ‘Chai Tea Latte’ at Starbucks”, I got curious about it. Of course, as if it’s meant to be, there’s no Starbucks in Rotterdam and even if there was one I’m not sure if I’d be willing to pay €4, -something- just for tea. Or €3,-? I’ve no idea what the price for ‘Chai Tea Latte’ is at Starbucks, but since I am familiar with the amount they ask for coffee and frappuccino I suppose it to be too expensive anyway. Luckily we have another shop here that has not necessarily everything you need, but at least everything I want, except for clothes, and there I managed to find tea bags of ‘chai tea’! Not that I was searching for them, honestly. It was cheap and for sale, so with my niece’s Facebook statuses in mind, how I could I resist buying them?
Dutch people, visit the Xenos! They have everything, it’s cheap and their stuff makes you (me) happy!

Ingredients:

  • 250 ml Boiling hot water
  • One tea bag of chai tea
  • A dash of (soy) milk)
  • A teaspoon of honey

Directions:

  • Bring water to boil in a kettle and pour it in a mug
  • Put the tea bag in it and leave it for as long as you’d like
  • Add the (soy) milk and the honey
  • Stir

To be honest no matter how addicted I’m becoming to this tea, I think my favorite one is still açai green tea. I’m sorry chai tea latte, you’ve lost this battle.
