Indeed, humans are hard to draw, we other humans easily see the mistakes and still, at the same time, beginners often draw faces like they never saw a person Except maybe the rare people with exceptional talent at this, IDK, we are all horrible in the very beginning. I was horrible for quite a few years.
Hard or not, I am lazy (very bad when one wants to learn to draw and it’s only one of my problems) and I need passion to draw and faces are so very interesting! I can’t get away with just faces even for portraits but still, it’s the most important part. I like the rules, the fixed things, I can learn that if I put in enough effort. And I do if it’s about faces. I put in way more effort than into anything else, by far. So I am best with that. I am nowhere good, I don’t practice it enough but it’s my strong point.
And it’s actually a neat trick to pick an animal and draw a human with its characteristics… Especially if it’s cartoon
Animals are often harder to me except their ears. Human ears takes a ton of practice and I don’t even like the look nearly as much as like, a cat or a deer ear, those are super fun!
The beef stew Alvaro made is quite nice and not even chewy but super rich and a tad too salty, I can’t eat it alone.
And it’s a problem as my willingness to touch eggs in any form rapidly deteriorates and what else would I eat it with? I take an attempt tomorrow, I still have turkey from the soup.
I relax my ways for a while. Stew with the onion already changed things but I added dairy too. I must avoid losing eggs and messing up everything. Without eggs I am doomed, I mean, I can’t find any woe where I am even remotely okay then.
But a little dairy spice up things, fortunately. And it’s good with my stew too.
Today I ate beef stew with leftover sponge cake (I dislike sponge cakes now for the first time…), soup with one poached egg (I put 2 into it. I dislike poached eggs now) and coffee with milk (Alvaro used milk so we have that now. nope, it’s still not good for me, feels funny and its sugar/protein ratio makes it not good for coffee. when I was younger, I liked this combo).
Yesterday I had short lived but intense cramps in my… lower belly? Nothing that some extensive toilet using can’t solve, fortunately but I am not used to this at all. Odd but I am a human, it can happen occasionally even if normally doesn’t.
Now I am fine just slightly nauseous partially due to my problems with my food today. It’s a pity, the stew is really tasty. Too tasty, I need it to make less neutral
It turned out stew using 2 kg beef is smallish. I only put a little part into the freezer, the rest won’t be a challenge even though we both eat it with other things and use other dishes too. I still can’t use to this, meat I consider very much becomes so small looking. But it’s very satiating (among other good points) so it’s all good.
I think I still remember the times when I ate food with a much bigger volume. Even though it’s nothing new that I eat dense food. But now I never eat not dense food. Soup doesn’t count and I don’t have it on the majority of my days and never a lot.
That’s good stuff!!! I am a tad sad I don’t have mascarpone now. I plan pancakes with cheese but my favorite not carby pancake is filled with mascarpone, coffee, vanilla. Mmmm.
I plan to make tiramisu too but I haven’t figured out carnivore ladyfingers yet. I have ideas and doubts And I so don’t need tiramisu on carnivore that I don’t try hard.
I did nothing Eastern-y today, not even food wise. I didn’t look at the boiled eggs and only Alvaro ate ham. Twice. But not much as I wanted some for tomorrow too.
My stew. I am still bad with photos, sunshine or not.
I looked at my (sometimes quite inaccurate but it’s good enough for a vague idea) notes. I can say my tentative idea about 7 pounds of meat a week has a quite big chance especially with my starting egg aversion. I am over 1 pound of meat a day this far, my egg intake was 6.5 a day, pretty stable (it would have dropped but I needed them, even I can’t eat much meat alone if it’s too salty or very flavorful and fatty. or I can but I don’t enjoy it as much as possible), my energy intake were somewhat similar, the usual carnivore low-ish but the this far unavoidable (not like I ever tried to avoid it) higher-cal day will come at some point I suppose. So many things are changed but even my huge eating window one day (11 hours. I had 2 hours twice, the others in between as normal for me) couldn’t make a big difference. It’s not that surprising on carnivore, actually. A tad more activity had no impact, that’s normal too.
Number of meals are typically 2 but several happened on my unusual day with breakfast as it’s normal.
My fat:protein ratio (in grams) started with the usual ~1 but then I ate lean but nice ham… So I ended up with significantly more protein than fat day after day since. I don’t think I had this before.
I can’t even try to give up coffee at this point.
Dairy helps me out a bit now that I have problem with eggs. I ate some cheese, tasty, more than tolerable but I had no desire to eat it, I just did it without any problem paired with something else. When the stew (with the mandatory onions) run out, I stop eating dairy again (unless I will still have problems with eggs) so I go back to the strictest version I am willing to do.
My being bored of eggs in most form never last for long. And I always eat eggs during those times just a bit less and I need to be more creative. I am not creative now, I haven’t eaten pancakes in April yet, that should work, I can fill them with cheese now. But I keep depending on meat more than usual.
