Sieun Lee, Day 6

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 I wanted something savory for breakfast, so I ate a cup of the broccoli soup with 1/4 cup of steamed rice. Then I made an instant coffee like yesterday. Throughout the morning I felt dizzy and lightheaded. I ate a quarter of a bagel with 1 tablespoon of cream cheese, then half of a pluot. To fight off the constant feeling of fatigue, I ate 2 fried (without oil) eggs, and rice with a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil. I felt better soon, but in a… Read More

Sieun Lee, Day 5

Monday, October 20, 2014 Breakfast with 2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt, 10 Shreddies, and 10 blueberries. Since I am unable to afford the 40-cent coffee, I am trying a couple of different instant coffees. Roommate let me try her “Make 260 Coffees or More” Nescafe Rich instant coffee. It was not bad and cost 7 cents. Morning snack was 7 chestnuts. For lunch, I had 1.5 cup of steamed rice with 1 cup of broccoli soup. The soup actually came out a bit salty, and good to dunk a dollop of… Read More

Saturday, October 18, 2014 For breakfast, I had a cup of soy milk with 20 Shreddies and 20 roasted black beans, and felt pretty full. I think my stomach is shrinking. For the mid-morning snack, I ate the last quarter of the Fuji apple from yesterday. Lunch at noon: a cup of steamed rice, and 1/5 of sweet and spicy tofu. During the early afternoon, a labmate offered me an After Eight. Together we calculated one After Eight mint chocolate thin cost approximately 7 cents. This was not too bad. I took… Read More

Sieun Lee, Day 2

Friday, October 17, 2014 Breakfast: 2 tbsp of strawberry Greek yogurt with 10 pcs Shreddies, 10 frozen blueberries, and 10 roasted black beans.

Mid-morning snack was a quarter of a small cantaloupe and 10 more of the roasted black beans. Lunch was a cup of steamed rice and a cup of pineapple pork, a leftover from few days ago. I had chopped up a piece… Read More
