Another Week of Eats

So another week, more food.  But at least this time, I did a bit of travelling!  I was a bit lax about taking photos of all my food this week, sorry!  But here are the meals I did take some pics of, and a description of the ones I didn't.

As always, I won't describe every single thing I ate every day - just the meals and any highlights.

Thoughts


This week was pretty normal for me, even with the travel to Sydney.  I was a bit tired with the travel, so I had a couple of extra snacks.  I'll admit it was just eating in place of sleep.  But I'm not too cut up about it.

I will say that on Thursday night I went to a little place called Thai Nesia on Oxford St, Surry Hills.  It was amazing!  Thanks for taking me Tobes.  It was the best Thai food I've had in a really long time.  And the ice cream from Mesina topped off an excellent meal.


Next Week


My main goal this week is actually to cut back on how much I spend on food!  I'm basically eating my money - it is so expensive to buy breakfast and lunch each day.  Sure, it's easier, and gives me a reason to get away from my desk for an hour, but seriously, enough is enough.

As I think this through a bit more, as well as a couple of other things, you'll see what I come up with in my April goals.  I think food will be a bit of a focus for me this month.



How do you go with food and travelling?  Do you relax and go with the flow?  Or do you try to stick to your normal food?
