Welcome back to episode two of What I Eat in a Day when it is that time of the month.
Every month is different, but I thought it would be fun to share the What I Eat in a Day blog post once a month so that even if you are not on your period, you can also get meal inspiration.
Since it was that time of the month, I was craving savory and delicious recipes that were quick and easy to make at home. My breakfast and lunch recipes normally take less than 20 minutes to make, while I will take my time to cook up something that I am craving for dinner.
In this blog post, I will be sharing WHAT I EAT IN A DAY.
BREAKFAST: AVOCADO TOAST W/ CHILI OIL EGG
For breakfast, I was craving something healthy but also hearty, so I made myself a chili oil egg on top of avocado toast. This combination has been my go-to breakfast for the past few weeks, it really hits the spot!
Chili oil egg is super easy to make, you basically just fry eggs on top of chili oil, and that’s it!
It is super easy to make, and unlike other recipes, there will be no waste with this recipe. We will be blending up all the garlic, spices, and herbs to take this chili oil to a whole other level.
- 20 cloves of chopped Garlic
- 4 tbsp of Sichuan Peppercorn
- 25 whole Red Chilli
- 2 tbsp of Red Chilli Flakes
- 4 cups of Oil (I use grapeseed oil)
- 2.5 tbsp of Korean Chilli Flakes

LUNCH: 10 MINUTES SPICY NOODLE SOUP
I got so many requests for making my Spicy Noodle Soup, so here is my easy recipe ready in 10 minutes.
The perfect easy meal to make for any time of the day, customize your Spicy Noodle Soup with any toppings of your choice.
My Spicy Noodle Soup can be made vegetarian-friendly, and you can adjust the spiciness level.
