Lovely to see what everyone is eating. I would eat a grilled ribeye daily if I could but I’ve never had success cooking steak indoors so I’m waiting for warmer New England days when my husband will grill me ribeyes on a weekend, one for dinner, two to eat cold for lunches.
For dinners I sometimes eat a half pound cheeseburger with bacon or pulled pork with two fried eggs over easy. Or chicken with butter & cheese.
I had avoided eggs for a whole year after a terrible stomach ache but recently reintroduced them and it’s been fine! Phew. So some lunches I’ll have bacon and hard boiled eggs, I like the uncured lunch meats I find at Whole Foods. Liverwurst with bacon if I’m in the mood. Cold hot dogs, not the junky kind though.
Sometimes I worry I’m not eating enough and that’s why my weight is stubborn. But after a lifetime of food addiction it’s hard for me to tell if I’m hungry or trying to self soothe. The “hard boiled egg test” always comes up yes so it’s probably real hunger and I should listen to it.
I did eliminate cream, yogurt, and cottage cheese because I can’t control portions on those. I don’t seem to have that issue with cheese, butter, or ghee which I still use in moderation. Still waiting for results on the scale but in any case glad to try to get a hold on those unwanted behaviors. Always wondering if I’m eating too much fat. Is that even a thing on carnivore? It’s so hotly debated.
My husband and I have been walking as many days a week as we can, just 30 minutes around the block on his lunchtime, he works from home. I can’t leave mom alone too long. The walking is entirely for my mental health.
