I wrote this early yesterday and now I send it already…
@Naghite: And people think carnivore doesn’t offer variety
Oh, slicing thin, what an idea… Something never crossed my mind. I love crispy thing… I will try…
I usually just cut my (very fatty) meat into small cubes and fry it in its own fat I like it but surely there are other lovely ways to fry meat…
Hi people, we have a rainy day again My poor garden, I would have some work to do in it but not when it’s wet… Oh well, it’s not THAT important I suppose.
We just gave up and started heating at night too… 4C mornings and not quite warm days, a not warm enough yet house (as we wait with heating until we actually start to feel cold and it’s below our normal winter temperature since we have the A/C. so first we need to warm up the house) and 3-5-7 hours of heating downstairs just isn’t a good enough combo. Oh well. The first night didn’t bring much difference but last night (heating longer and higher) finally did. It was 19C at noon! That’s cool, erm warm Rainy but cold day so airing brought down the humidity, nice. We still need to use the dehumidifier after washing, we always fill the washing machine so there is a lot of wet clothes then. And we never had a drier and never will, not important while taking up space and I never have enough of that. Normally (when it’s not winter) we can put most of the clothes and other cloths outside, that’s nice. I like that we have a roofed terrace part and part of it even gets sunshine! Some part doesn’t as it has 3 beautiful big pines in the way. Fortunately they are very much living, only the thujas died or dying.
Clothes drier, oh, what a modern concept… I lived in a house without water! (Just in summer, it was my Grandma’s. I loved it. I mean, there wasn’t water even on the property, that came later. No, there was a well a few hundreds of meters away.) I washed my clothes by hand when I was a beginner programmer in the capitol… Oh and the same big city had rented places without a toilet (well, there was a common one, one for multiple apartments). I was shocked, that is the level I just couldn’t accept ever (and rooms without a window. okay there was one looking at a tiny… erm, duct? vertical tunnel? other people’s toilets looked at it. NOPE. oh I saw horrible places in the capitol whenever I tried to rent a place using my very tiny money). It was bad enough to have a stranger as a roommate in the first months. But I needed a room not to lose my first job I managed to get after a long search. I was born at the wrong time.
I have nice fatty meat now (the SUPER fatty one they sold as pork chop. I will track it as pork shoulder, the fat content is at least that much. but maybe a tad less than the 70/30 scraps I used to buy…), I will eat a pound of it nicely fried, I chose some quite fatty pieces So my roast probably will be just not too fatty.
I focused on leaner pork in the past and while I still think it can help me sometimes, it doesn’t work so well now that I eat less eggs and fatty dairy doesn’t seem to help with satiation. I too easily overeat protein if I use leanish meat as my main food I think. Or if my satiation will be quick again in the future, I undereat fat during the day.
I try to buy a lot of pork chuck in the near future, that is the chillest. I love it, fat/protein ratio is brilliant for my needs… Not the cheapest though but if it satiates me just right and gives me more joy, the difference isn’t much.
Anyway, it’s pork so it’s cheap compared to many other items.
I drop my dairy now that I have quite fatty protein to base my day on and freshly made at that! I roast 1300g fatty pork, it should be enough for 3 days, I will eat other meats , my pickled herring is nearing its expiration date and I probably will need the variety soon anyway.
Apart from hardships regarding getting satiated (I was so unsatiated after my dinner yesterday, it passed but then I had some problem at night as so often… but I was sleepy and focused on something else, I had enough of eating at night anyway so I managed to get away with a slightly creamy coffee), it’s quite chill now. It’s carni day #4 for me now (not clean enough even for me due to the carbs in my catfish spread and I had to eat a little whipped cream I made for Alvaro as he didn’t need it anymore, it had 1-2 grams of non-animal carbs again and it was sweetener at that. okay I go back to normal whipped cream and only a little amount gets sweetened, I did it many times but I supposed he will eat it all. he didn’t. but it’s November and I am not THAT dedicated. I am just training. I will be super dedicated in January, I totally expect it being full carnivore. how hard it could be? I will buy various items to help me out in need. I don’t have any processed meat now except some sausages I dislike because it doesn’t uses real intestine but some too thick thing. edible but it bothers me. the taste of the sausage is fine but I ate way better of the same kind) and it’s quite fine. I mean, exactly zero temptation or compulsion or whatever to eat off. It is expected but considering my November this far, I should appreciate I can behave now. Not like I have other good options. Satiation is hard enough with meat and eggs now and they are my best items (apart from gluten but let’s not talk about that, I don’t even have any now).
But the majority of my fasting window and usually a part of my eating window is spent in nice satiation and not thinking about what to eat in the near future. I probably even think less about food, still much. Nice topic.
Oh by the way, I used the program @FrankoBear introduced to us. Most styles like bacon, apparently. Even the “chewed, partially digested and vomited” style (Arcane) that makes some super detailed carpet patterns decided to put an almost recognizable egg and bacon on the pic… As I added eggs, it’s me, after all. Brilliant choice.
Pandora is very pretty, it made a piece of wonderful art from garbage bags too… It is obsessed with putting some shiny, juicy greens to pinkish things but it doesn’t do it with bacon for some reason.
