Pasta sauce and fresh juices

I made pasta sauce again today! Everything went a lot faster this time around since I knew what I was doing. I think you need to use a lot of tomatoes if you want a sauce that looks orange. I blended my sauce with some store bought stuff. It was really good. The whole wheat pasta I got from Ikea tastes very grainy. I wonder if I can get fresh pasta around here.

I also chopped up some carrots and apples for juicing. I made juice with carrots, apples, and oranges after coming back from dinner. I had dinner at a hot pot place with expats from work. Very fattening and oily stuff. I felt the need to detox. I also made soup with the leftover stuff that couldn't be juiced. It's not as smooth and creamy looking as the carrot soup I've made before. I think there's just too much fiber in this one. And I can't put milk in it since I put oranges in it. Oh wells, I think it's still pretty good. I need to get some black pepper though.

I figure I should try to eat healthy (i.e. lots of veggies and fruit) for breakfast and dinner. Lunch is usually rice with meat. A lot of times, that would be roasted meat. I feel sluggish after lunch every day.Wish there was a gym at the mall next to the office. That would be so convenient.

I would've thought that hotpot is pretty health, you got veggies and mushrooms, lean meats, and noodles you dip in broth. And if it's Canton style, you get seafood! It's not like you have hotpot with bacon...?? LOL.
