No, I'm Not Dieting!

Photo for illustration purposes only
I had a take-away salad for lunch today, which I had while sitting at my desk in the office and somebody remarked that I am dieting.
 
Seriously. No. I'm eating salad because I love them. Dieting my foot.
 
I always like my salads and actually have been hankering to have some nice ones (with blue cheese in particular) for a week now. So instead of having mixed rice today, I decided to tapau an Asian grilled chicken salad from Tony Roma's. I am full until now and it's dinner time!
 
Anyway, have you seen the portion of the salad served in American chain restaurants? Not exactly diet portion! Hahaha
Crazy yummy Japanese salad  at Plan b.
 Again, why we relegate salad into the "diet" food compartment?
 
Eating them is healthy.
 
Not so healthy though if we slather fattening dressing onto them.
 
By the way, I absolutely abhor thousand island dressing. Hah!
Salad from salad bar at Boulevard Hotel
 I love eating raw veges.
 
Salad as Mat Salleh/gwailo calls them.
 
Or ulam as Orang Melayu calls them. Heh heh
Homemade lazy salad at home, eaten with toast. Hahaha
 Raw veges and some protein makes great salad combo!
Satay Kajang Hj Samuri rawks!
Of course, even though I love raw veges (or cooked ones), I am not averse to these either.
 
Now... when shall I go to binge on some ribs pulak? *rubs hands*

  2. I love salads too! Yeah, people associate salad with dieting which is not accurate. I like to have salads as a main meal with all those raw veggies and some protein like roasted chicken or hard boiled eggs. I am not into Thousand Island dressing anymore :)

  7. that's the perception of many people, or probably Malaysian only, that salad = diet.. haha!! but then it's so common in the western places, where salad comes from, that we have salad as a meal wat.. and talk about that, many people also link small portion to dieting.. err, come on, it has to depend on what you are eating right?? a cube of very fat meat vs a big bowl of raw veggie, which one is more "diet"?? :D

    1. I still believe that portion control plays a big part in "dieting" or eating wisely.

      But I agree - a cup of meat is not equal to a big bowl of raw veggie. :)

  8. Mak Glam sure enjoys her food with a variety as much as she enjoys her very happening life lah.. i can see she sometimes goes for all meat, sometimes she goes for all veggie, sometimes all carbs and protein.. how nice, she doesn't really care about "dieting" or her weight, because she leads such a healthy lifestyle that she can eat what she likes..

  9. having that said.. when we eat too much of meat, we do actually crave for some rather fresh and crispy raw veggie - the salad (as Mat Salleh/gwailo calls them), or ulam (as Orang Melayu calls them) or GRASS (as the Chinese jokingly calls them)~~ :p
