Garam masala zucchini fries and spicy tomato sauce
Still not feeling too good today, but my meals taste pretty good, so I guess that's an improvement. I actually feel like I could eat just about anything today! (won't do that though, since I want to get better sooner rather than later)
I had to go attend a class today, all the physical exercise needed for that was to walk 10 minutes to the train station and it was too much.. I eventually arrived at the train station, all dizzy, sweating and tired, so I ended up turning around and going back home again. This sucks.. Anyway, I'll stop whining about it, because that certainly won't help. Positive thinking is key!

Right now I'm watching the movie Morning Glory, which is pretty funny. And I'll probably end up surfing the net for some recipes and interesting articles, or looking for places to go in New York. (or anywhere else on earth for that matter)
For lunch I made these zucchini fries with garam masala, and served it with a tomato sauce.
I also had a few 'muffins' that I made out of ground beef, veggies, spices and egg, for protein.
