I am always a bit envious seeing blood sausages… Ours are full with rice. On or off carnivore, I definitely don’t want any rice in my sausages Meat is tastier. Blood too. Not mentioning other things I don’t like in rice.
Oh well, I have my own good things.
And a stupid headache, I start to lose patience and it’s just some low-level thing but too often lately.
Alvaro made a good curry so I had 2 merely keto days but they were okay enough, I thought. Then I got the usual cramp in my left calf last night. Maybe I ate too little meat lately, maybe the plants, I couldn’t ever test it, I just know vegetarian keto produced cramps, carnivore with enough meat never did. I know the reasons why I strayed and I can do it better in the future…
I took some magnesium, of course, I always do when I get cramp and it solves it for a while. But I want to get enough magnesium from my food, probably through lowering my need as I can’t eat much magnesium. Or is there some more magnesium rich carni food I can eat in bigger amounts…?
I made chicken soup while Alvaro made the curry from the breast and legs (well the part I could cut off). Just because the curry has vegetables, my chicken soup is the usual chicken, salt, water But I am soooooooooooooooo done with chicken. I hate the smell while cooking/frying too. The taste is weak (never was a big fan of chicken but the commercial cheap ones are worse anyway), it’s just one of the cheapest protein sources and it’s tender and versatile… But I can buy turkey too, that’s better. It’s nothing new, I just couldn’t resist last time I saw this plump chicken on sale… And Alvaro loves the breast. Buying only the breasts is almost the same price… Maybe I should feed most of the rest to the cats? But bony meat calls for soup… Well okay, the soup is okay. But okay isn’t enough. I can’t buy bony turkey parts though… Maybe I should make meat soup with some leftover bones only… Whatever, it will get sorted out, I won’t buy more chicken. I hope It’s nice at a relative, chicken is tender, it has its place…
I bought a cute (1.5kg, over 3 pounds) slab, I still dunno if pork thigh is a proper name but well, it’s a proper part of the animal. I wouldn’t feel so happy getting out the last pork piece from the freezer, no matter how big is that And it’s not that big anyway. I learned my lesson. 3.5 kg isn’t as much as it seems.
Alvaro still enjoys his curry in the near future, I had to taste it… repeatedly, it’s surprisingly awesome considering the meat is mostly some common chicken breast… But now I go back to some plain meat. I have plenty, after all. I don’t know why I had this reluctance to roast the big slab just because we have some other meats now. I roast it in the weekend.
I ate the last one of the the vienna sausages with a high chicken meat content. It is convenient, cheap and tasty enough, I can keep that, not as an important staple but still, some variety here and there. But no other chicken. Except organs, they are good.
Oh, today. Apart from the curry, I had soup with poached eggs and some pancakes and quark, bresaola and cheese, vienna sausage and fried chicken liver… I was hungry but my food took time to cook, heal, get warm or whatever they needed so I basically ate everything I had. Except the snack sausage, I won’t buy it again. Not bad but not tempting at all. I have cream now, had headache too (the pill just proved to be effective. yay) so I obviously drink zillion coffees as usual… I have bigger problems than that at the moment.
I plan a carnivore dinner using the above ones minus curry and maybe tomorrow will be the same. We go for a little but nice hiking (the destination is very nice to look at) and I am sure I will be hungry when we arrive so no time to roast my pork for hours I could fry some in a pan I suppose but I have so many things to eat. I didn’t even try the head cheese because I forgot.
Yep, that’s a nice plan. The chicken breast surrounded with other things, mostly mildly carby plants will have no chance (but it is nice indeed. not nearly as good as roasted pork shoulders but that’s a super high bar especially when I didn’t have it since days). That’s important, I may kind of decide things and I totally can get tempted to do something else.
I don’t find photo of my vienna sausage + cheese + pork belly after their holiday together in the hot oven, I was busy and I only made it when the sausage got all wrinkly anyway… But it was tasty (and nostalgic… we both knew that dish from our childhood) and filling. We had it for yesterday lunch. The curry was made later and I was satiated but had to taste it and it was nice and I had multiple bites and then I got hungry. Stupid carbs. But it hadn’t even much, the vast majority of the plants in the curry was cucchini and it had plenty meat! And I didn’t eat much of it at all. Maybe I got too sensitive. OR my body decided it uses its “no small meals” rule again. Makes sense.
(Why I can try everything - immediately if possible - that exists near me and seems nice I wonder. Even if it has meat. Maybe Alvaro eating was the problem, that typically triggers a meal.)
Sigh. Okay, I had some off days (it wasn’t a good week for me anyway and I cared less, not like it did any good so it’s stupid, it’s easy to eat carni food… well Alvaro at home may complicate things, I am not a disciplined person…) but I really want to do “everything” right now. Carnivore (with tiny exceptions with good reasons but I see none in the near future), not eating without hunger or other valid reason, making some proper meat if I eat the last. It seems so easy.
