I'm doing something unusual this time! Not really reviewing a product but since I have this habit of taking photos of things so I thought I'd just introduce you to something.
And no, I am not paid to do this lah.
Honestly, I've been getting bored of lunch options in the two canteens/cafes at my office and the adjacent's office buildings. I am definitely a rice eater but I get bored easily of the dishes offered. And the crowd.. Ohmygod. Sometimes dishes gets polished off before 1pm! *faints*
So I've been trying to find options for lunch - cereal with milk/soymilk/yogurt/etc, instant noodles in cups/bowls, crackers/biscuits.. Something easy to prepare since I have hot water facilities at the office.
I got this Kinohimitsu Diet Meal sachet after purchasing one of the beauty/fashion magazines (I think it was Female) so I went "Wow! Something I can have for lunch!"

|added hot water. sorreh for the photo quality when I took this the lights at my room went off (office's green policy)|
It does smell like green tea. The creamer makes it creamy, but it's not like Starbucks' green tea latte kind of thick-creamy so it didn't make me feel easily put off. Or jelak.
The sachet in the magazine came with a RM15 discount voucher for a purchase of a box of the Diet Meal in any two flavours available - Green Tea; and Hot and Spicy.
So I went ahead and bought myself a box. Planned to consume on Mondays to Thursdays and have proper lunches on Fridays!
I still eat heavy breakfast. I have two McDonald's drive-thru on my way to work - one even has McCafe! So I'd usually end up buying the breakfast and upgrade the drinks to one of the McCafe's beverages, usually mocha. And large.

|rice embryo (I didn't know we can eat them already at that stage!) in pale orange powder|
The powder smells a little bit like curry powder.
|puffed up baby rice!|
So this Hot and Spicy one tasted like.. diluted curry. Spiciness level: bearable. It's quite nice to drink, like you're having soup BUT OF COURSE cannot beat all your instant curry noodles.
Yes, this Diet Meal is low in calorie, but I don't think it's a hunger depressant. I felt hungry at around 4pm for the second flavour as well. So I'd usually have it with some sort of crackers/biscuits.
|I love my meiji plain crackers!|
Yes, I am en route to losing some of my fats so I am trying to cut down on calories. I chose to eat light for lunch since I have a good reason to do so, but I do eat properly for breakfast and dinner.
However I feel since I get hunger pangs in the evening, I'm gonna prepare some light snacks to munch on like trail mix or cereal.
And learn how to chew slowly.
I don't have weight progress to show you or nothing because..
I'm not botheredlah.
Am looking for other stuff to alternate with this for lunch.
