Damascus – Clean Eating Challenge Day 4
Brunch – Home-Made Breakfast
I’ve planned the weekend to be my cheat days but even then I didn’t commit any serious adultery.
Normally on my off-day I start off with a heavy breakfast much later in the day, say about 12.30 pm, and then skip lunch altogether.
So I’m following the same regimen in the 30 day clean eating challenge as well.
This time around it included 3 boiled eggs, a piece of Sheer Maal, Malai and tea loaded with sugar.
It’s not the healthiest of breakfasts in the world, but it’s not the worst either. And that three boiled eggs would give me enough proteins to keep me energized till dinner.
Both lunch and dinner were ordered through FoodPanda, the biggest food delivery service in Pakistan till now. And no, I’m neither sponsored nor paid by them.
Dinner – Damascus
I had planned on binge eating something really dense, like Charsi Tikka, to reward myself for the previous 3 days of salad eating but then thought better of it.
Haven’t been to Damascus, Karachi’s oldest Lebanese café, for the longest time, so decided to have a go at it.
Went for their Chicken Arabic treat which costs Rs.1200 and is good for two people.
Here’s what it comprised of:
- Half chicken Furruouge
- 2 chicken shawarma
- Baba Ganoush
- 4 Filafel
- 3 pieces Pita Bread
- Garlic sauce
Quite a list, huh?
While it wasn’t a pure-healthy option, what with the garlic sauce and fries, it was, by and large, a very good dinner to have if you’re on a clean eating quest.
And it was delectable. So those of you who are a fan of Arabic cuisine, definitely something for you to dip your hands into.
