Blood cheese sounds exciting But it would be probably pink cheese, just mildly flavored with blood, a cheese must be mostly dairy… Not like I am an expert. Whatever, I would try that now and I definitely find cheeses off-putting at the moment. I don’t know why, I definitely barely ate them lately and I always liked cheeses.
So my dairy-free days continue. With almost no eggs for now. I probably just have enough meat and variety to pull off the next few days then we go to shopping again.
@FrankoBear, your stories are great. I mean both the meaning and style. I learned some history today. I know snippets from the life during and after the World War 2 but those are very different. My anchestors were peasants, they were stripped from their lands after the war, those couldn’t be nice times. But they had even sugar during the war as they got a higher-ranked Russian soldier who were nice enough, liked the food and the kids… And Grandma dressed/masked as an ugly gypsy women to escape getting raped and she was successful.
I have lots of family stories but very little from those times. Mom liked to tell me the happier happenings, zillion times. They were good. I tell them to Alvaro now and who cares that the main character died in 1943. I know them a little and still put flower on their grave (just because Mom did, I don’t see the point, honestly. They surely reincarnated ages ago and I can think of them anywhere. But I respect the tradition unlike most traditions. It’s not a huge sacrifice to cross the country and visit my Aunt even though the 2 places are still far so we make a detour…)
I like to have some family history. I even know about a prideful horse who disliked being passed by other horses so there were little horse races with carriages in the streets
Why not? I drank mineral water for 2 hours at a cake shop once. I met with the choir girls. I was very proud of myself for long though I did nothing, there was zero temptation. But I was a good hedonist consuming whatever I desired best, I don’t always do it this right
Exactly. Aren’t they pretty? At least many of them. I like to look at pretty things.
Sigh. Someone give me some cheaper shrimp. it would be fun to eat it now and then… But it’s so little nothing, I truly like my own food better. But shrimps are funny. But all seafood is so expensive here. Except hakefish I don’t like and some tiny fish that is only good as cat food…
Somewhat expensive tasty salmon? Fine on occasion, there are sales too, that’s worth it, that’s SALMON! I am fine without it for years but sometimes it’s nice, I mostly buy it for Alvaro but I taste it too. I prefer it fresh and raw but that’s out.
But expensive not very tasty little fun things, nope unless I really want them. Maybe I should buy a little box and use it sparingly. I loved the tiny things in soup in Chinese restaurants, not like I can cook those soups… We ate it in pasta too.
But no, there are no small boxes/bags, only too big ones. Sometimes I have this problem with things. And sometimes the bags are way too tiny.
But if you talk about seafood more, I probably will buy some soon. If I find a small enough package. Or I will use it for a year… But I don’t even have recipes to use shrimps as spicing up things…
Scrambled eggs with shrimp? I imagine that would look nice.
I am totally a stranger to these mental clarity things (if you think about that. I always hear that and don’t understand, I don’t know what they are talking about. our mind changes, sometimes it’s more clouded, it’s normal. mine is extremely connected to my sleep, activity and the weather, not my eating), I never had any change like that, not on keto, not on carnivore. My mental change is not wanting tons of food, yay (that’s physical too but mental as well. I could eat a ton after my body didn’t want any more. my overeating and food enjoying skills are formidable).
Benefits are very individual and there is the time component too… Our circumstances and pasts are different, of course we don’t experiment the same.
I feel okay on carnivore but it’s nothing special nowadays. I need more exercise, more fresh air, less reading and watching videos and staying up late, I know that… I feel like on keto or low-carb when I don’t do big mistakes on them. But mistakes are so more common on them… Carnivore is much safer.
Sometimes I wonder if you guys who love butter have tastier ones or it’s just individual taste.
Butter is nice but very neutral, almost nothing. I rather use the way less expensive and way tastier lard unless it’s some dessert Of course, there are horrible lards, the store-bought ones are like that, fat rendered out of store-bought cheaper bacon is like that… But pig farm lard and roasted pig lard is very tasty. I used to eat it as snack in the very beginning… When I meet a new item, I usually have some honeymoon phase. But I still love lard, I just don’t need it much and I don’t eat fat alone anymore.
So I pretty much avoid butter. I put a tiny bit into my coffee as I had no cream and sometimes I use it in desserts but that’s a very small amount. But the tasteless coconut oil is almost as good, sometimes just as good or better for certain purposes while it’s just as cheap as lard. Coconut oil prices plummeted in the last years. It’s not carnivore but okay fat, I don’t mind a tiny bit if I don’t want to use lard for some reason. Alvaro cooks with it anyway… But he uses duck fat for meat dishes now, not coconut oil :D. We always will have duck fat, duck is nice sometimes and gives us lots of fat. Sometimes Oti gives us some too.
So butter is weak, the fat in my pork is zillion times tastier. And I like simplicity so I prefer not adding any extra fat to my meat. It should have enough to begin with. At least the simpler dishes, stews are different, of course.
Butter is still special and add variety, I always liked it in my vegetarian times but it’s not particularly important. And now I have lard so it has no chance in savory food ~
I am not that very knowledgeable though… What is 2 processed steps? Not like it matters, I don’t buy complicated things in the store but no one can take away my sausages
The other rules are similar to mine when I am strict except I don’t drink alcohol then.
I usually allow 1dl beer on any woe if I am more relaxed, a few times a year. Allow is a bad word, I don’t even want more
I don’t have a max. carb limit but 20g a day (great for me. probably 30-40 would be great too but I have reasons I don’t try that yet) wouldn’t be very hard on carnivore, I still didn’t go beyond, just touched it a few times. I need to be careful with my dairy but I automatically do that.
But on my no dairy, no liver days I stay very low.
Condiments are a little blurry to me but I made my own decisions.
I consider a little mustard okay (it is just so perfect with eggs and sausage), even a few drops of lemon juice now and then but tomato puree is out if I do “carnivore”. On carnivore-ish I may even eat eggs in purgatory sometimes if I only use what is stuck to my eggs. But no sweetener or fibers are allowed.
And I dislike sugar in my meat but if I accidentally buy it or it’s totally unavoidable and very, very little, I don’t worry about it too much, it just disturbs me subtly. It makes no difference for my body but I hate needlessly added sugar with a passion.
I got carried away again. I planned to come only once a day but I am too addicted.
