My change in lifestyle has been going pretty well but I haven't totally given up ice cream yet (damn it!) but I am getting there because I also do cardio and ab exercises three times a week. I cant believe it.

. I happen to be a stir fry fiend and I love food from Busaba Eathai and Wagamama so I went  fishing on line for recipes they had on their website and I tried this Chilli Prawn Stir- fry I found on the Busaba website. I wanted a heavy meal for dinner on one of those days when salad was just not cutting it. However, I must add that I made some slight changes to the original recipe like in place of fresh Thai sweet basil leaves, I got Thai sweet basil paste instead and in place of Thai chilli jam, I got Thai chilli paste (hence the variation in colour from the original recipe) plus I added some spring onions to it a minute before I took it off from the burner to bulk it out a bit (its optional though). If there is a China Town around you, you could try your luck with finding the original ingredients I substituted for. My result turned out delicious either way! Serve with basmati rice preferably because it is a healthier option. 

Did I mention how much I adore shiitake mushrooms? Yum!
I have been much of a homebody and I have not been feeling 100%  as of recent so that is why my face is scarce. I should be back on the scene soon!

I haven't been to Busaba in ages. The closest one to me is in Westfield mall. I tried to start eating healthy this week but it is NOT happening. I need my carbs from time to time in this cold weather LOL ;)
