Of course… Or you mean they didn’t get other food at all? Seeds are natural food for chickens, of course they eat plenty of greens and animals too (in the wild or when they can/get it). I’ve just read they eat frogs and mice too, not super surprising but I didn’t know that. Snails and worms, sure, they are chicken And I saw how much they love fruits.
Wow That is some serious level of making their own stuff
Isn’t that just a vegan thing? Vegetarians are normal, to me, at least but I was one for long (I liked that even if I didn’t know less carbs would have been better for me). But obviously there are annoying ones among them too. Oh and hypocrites. Or ignorant ones.
It’s vegetarian so I as a vegetarian surely wouldn’t have found it strange I used to eat absolutely anything all alone. I preferred mustard alone. A lot of it sometimes.
That may be even something tasty but I would miss my eggs at that point. Never was the type to eat vegs alone, not even legumes. Not good for satiation.
Wait, for mains? A bit lacking to me but I always suspected my vegetarian dishes aren’t super common. Now Alvaro’s vegetarian dishes. Some animal protein is very much required. Even if he eats legumes. It’s side dish for him and wants eggs with it (or meat nowadays that we have that a lot).
Oh if I popped in, I bring some photos… My diet is complicated now… I start carnivore and things may happen. Yesterday I did so well, ate my carni food, enough for a day macro wise… Yeah, chicken is still no good. And I got bored of meat at that point, I tried dairy and cheese but I added a little keto treat in the end and I finally got satiated. Still not a bad day for me in July but I wasn’t pleased. Oh well, never will try a chicken day again. Or if I do, I will know about the consequences.
So, yesterday. I roasted the breastless chicken (2 hours. the color was okay, the skin mostly crispy, too bad I want crunch) and ate half of it. I already consumed a lot of chicken liver at that point (I tried soaking it in spicy milk the previous day, only a really tiny bit, it was good. then I mixed the rest of the liver with lots of sour cream, my own spice mix again and promptly fried it. as I forgot to mix them previously and I was hungry. and it was GREAT. I keep this sour cream thing, will try without the spice mix, it’s stretching my idea of carnivore and I didn’t stop using onions on my liver years ago just to use an onion/garlic/black pepper mix). Then I had a little cheese, mascarpone/sour cream as dessert and still was hungry. Oh and some pork jowl…
So it was a higher-cal day in the end and not even carnivore. Very much keto, it could have been much worse, I only needed a little though fatty extra but still Stupid chicken. I like pork more anyway. But I wanted to have a full (minus breast) roasted chicken at least one… Maybe we should try to same with a duck There are duck sales here lately… A whole duck isn’t that big Super fatty though The tiny frame with barely any meat was meh, I didn’t really taste it was duck.
So, my chicken. 1100g in raw weight:
Today Alvaro took my only big slab of pork and made some goulash-like soup with it (almost the same just with pork - goulash must have beef or mutton, I think all ruminant is borderline okay but that’s it. but “goulash” means a beef one and “mutton goulash” or how I should translate it is the mutton one. it’s extremely different with pork, okay, obviously but more than if we change the meat in a veggie rich curry, for example. probably because goulash is a soup and all that liquid gets very different if it gets some ruminant fat).
I still have pork chuck and we go to shopping tomorrow so it’s fine. I am glad we can burn a ton of branches, the garden produces it like crazy and it’s a small one (with too many trees. too many wasteful trees who just grow new branches and dry the old ones).
Alvaro helped me to finish the chicken, I wasn’t so into it anymore and I need some pork today. I try to forget about chicken in the near future.
The last one has some duck scratchings.
And I took a shot of my veggie patch. Well there are tiny tomato plants in the right somewhere… And parsley behind the cornflower row… And one flowering plant is radish…
This is the more flowery half of it. The morning glory has a bit similar name in Hungarian, without the glory and the word used in it is “dawn”… The plant has no idea about it so it has this open state at noon. I don’t know how, but no matter how few plants I have, I always get pink and lilac ones in roughly similar numbers… I love variety.
I think no one is surprised that I still drink coffee. I have no milk or cream but I opened a package of mascarpone… It’s from cream so good enough, I just can’t pour it like the others. But I start with mixing an egg milk anyway…
