In this blog, I will discuss how I plan my daily and weekly diet. And to give you an overview, I am not into a certain kind of diet but I keep in mind healthy and balanced food. Since I live alone in an apartment, I do not have much to prepare when it comes to the food I eat. I sometimes rely on the food delivery services or the food that my mother prepares and sends over to my place.

First thing in the morning, I brew my own coffee. I bought my own coffee maker because I am not into instant coffees that are available in the market. Also, I am very conscious of sugar intake and I learned that instant coffee has a high amount of sugar. I do not put cream and sugar because I have been used to just black coffee.

The following nutrition information is provided by the USDA for 1 cup (270g) of black coffee with no cream or sugar added.

  • Calories:1
  • Fat:0g
  • Sodium:6mg
  • Carbohydrates:0g
  • Fiber:0g
  • Sugars:0g
  • Protein:0.3g

Another thing is, I do not eat rice in the morning. I just have bread or biscuits. That’s why I always stock biscuits, cookies, and bread.

During lunch, I eat rice (most of the time) and I eat heavy meals during lunch. There is this Korean restaurant near my apartment and I always buy take-out meals there. To give you a look at what I order there, here are the photos of their Korean Kimchi Rice and Korean Beef Steak (which are my favorite because they have vegetable side dishes):

I am also fond of “kakanins” because my mother always cooks “kakanin” whenever she has time. With that, she always sends over “kakanin” over my place. And these are my favorites:

Here’s the nutrition facts of sapin-sapin and cassava cake:

The following nutrition information is provided by the USDA for 1 cup (103g) of raw cassava.1

  • Calories: 165
  • Fat: 0.3g
  • Sodium: 14.4mg
  • Carbohydrates: 39g
  • Fiber: 1.9g
  • Sugars: 1.8g
  • Protein: 1.4g

In addition, instant noodles may be the most unhealthy food in my diet. Since I live alone, I prefer to stock ready-to-eat or instant foods like instant noodles or ramen. But I always make sure to dilute the MSG and salt content of it by drinking tea before sleeping. I also love “Japchae” Korean noodles which taste sweet and have veggies in them.

Fruits and vegetables are also part of my daily and weekly diet. I have been used to fruits and vegetables at least every week, so I make sure I have them:

Fruits contain carbohydrates, mostly in the form of sugar as well as important vitamins and minerals. They are very rich in nutrients needed by our body. I eat at least one (1) or more fruit/s a day to maintain my health.

Also, though I am not into sweets, I still eat desserts that are high in fats and sugar. Like the hyped ice cream and milk tea, but this is very occasional.

Lastly, I always drink lots of water every day to make sure that I am fulfilling my body’s need to be hydrated. I also drink herbal teas to wash toxins and salts in my body. This also calms me. It feels nice to be well-hydrated especially now that dry season is coming and the weather is becoming humid and we need extra amount of water intake.


  1. Same feels here!!! True indeed if your living alone and I wanna commend how you keep that kind of pace ensuring your sugar intake. Great jooooob! 🙂 Kudos to you!

  2. Hello, Ate Andrea! I suddenly became interested in having my own healthy diet. I think I eat too many sweets and junk foods this day. I am glad that you are being consistent with your diet. Keep up your healthy routine.
