My very first strawberries are halfway between flower and ripe fruit… I am curious if they finally will be sweet enough for me. I never felt strawberries and raspberries particularly sweet on my original keto… Some strawberries are fine but most are just not sweet enough. And frozen raspberries were mostly sour, definitely not sweet just sweetish but I liked them. Sweetness is overrated. Beetroots were sweet Unfair comparison as I am more sensitive to sweetness if it’s a vegetable…
Carnivore changed things, I feel frozen raspberries sweet now. Not very sweet but sweet.
They feel sweeter fresh.
I am curious about the strawberries. Due to their not reliable sweetness, it’s not among my fav fruits but they are pretty and nice smelling…
But I will wait until the last moment as I really try do carnivore-ish now. I eat fruits as I am me but I try to limit it to some lemon juice, that’s useful
Yesterday I ate 2 boiled egg for lunch and a decent sized dinner where I ate these, among others:
A not-pizza-at-all with sour cream with garlic and cheese on top. Next time I just put the sour cream on it and won’t ruin it with heat and skip the cheese too. The base is pork and eggs, 50-50%. Probably not eggy enough but it was too soft already… But I could held the slices in hand, it’s something.
And scrambled eggs with grounded pork skin, a fried boiled egg (no big deal but I had to try) and some sour cream with garlic.
I ate some pancakes as well and another egg (in purgatory).
Today I made biscuits. I often want crunchy biscuits so I inevitably will eat them one way or another. Therefore I better make carnivore ones. And it was a success. I have some super lean pork chuck roast now (don’t ask how I managed it… pork chuck is usually wonderfully fatty and even if I cut off the visible fat before I put the rest into the freezer some weeks ago, it should be nice. but it’s way too lean and dry to me. I prefer love even fattier meat lately except some organs as they are perfect the way they are) and I struggled to eat it. So I had some super low-meat carnivore-ish day. But now I put some into these biscuits! The taste was good but they were a tad dry. Adding fat doesn’t help as it comes out, I probably will need pork belly or sausage. Or just eat them with sour cream but I should keep my sour cream mania in check. I have some very good 25% sour cream and I could eat them up so easily… Despite all my training to minimize my dairy intake But I am fine now and it helped with calories, I need them.
I used just a wee bit of cheese (and now we are out of cheese until Tuesday) unlike the first time I made crunchy carni biscuits (and promptly forgot the recipe. this was my 2nd attempt). I never liked my dishes very cheesy (except maybe when melted cheese is on top of something) and I lost interest in cheese in the last months. I use them if I need variety and my other options are used up.
So, I am glad and try not to forget the best recipe (as they are at least 4 different kinds, probably more)!
