What's for dinner?

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Sweet-potato & brie mash, topped with 3 fried-eggs..
It was surprisingly yummy and satiating.

What to have tomorrow..?
Dinners of late have been.. Indic-style meat curries, prawn pad Thais, meat casseroles, roast chicken n vegetables, goose legs à l’orange, roasted pigeon, roast Guinea fowl, pheasant, various cheeses with maize crackers, meat n vegetable broths, omelettes, sometimes an orange, sometimes nothing..

Prosecco, and crisp-breads with Brie.. a very light dinner, I know. :)

I’d been tucking into chicken curry n rice for the last few days, and beef curries n rice prior to that..

..made the worst carrot soup in my entire existence, thus far.. the flavours just didn’t mesh well and blend together to form a final cohesive flavour - I’ll let it sit, until tomorrow, and revisit it.

I’ll save my palate for a T-bone-steak-and-wine brunch.. or some similar meat, tomorrow. :icon-rolleyes:

How can carrot soup go so wrong! :|

It sure needs something to save it, and I ain’t talking about prayer here.

Yes, chicken.. definitely chicken.. pastured, so more flavourful.

Smoked oysters out of can and chocolate cake.washed down with hot water with a slice of lemon.

It's the best in the middle of a fast meal I've tasted in a long time.

@Pedro.. I gave up on saving the soup, and flushed it down the toilet a few days later instead.. I thought it not worth anymore of my time and effort spent on it.

@Meno.. canned smoked oysters and chocolate cake, to break a fast mid-way? how very decadent of you.. who you trimming up for? :wink:
__
I’ve taken a month (..probably more) off, from doing weights, to alleviate the accruing musculoskeletal stress from my workouts, so time to start up the weights again some time this week.. until such a time may arrive that I’ll need a next break, though I may not need a next break. A permanent paleo/keto eating-regimen, keeps my gains/weight in permanent good stead/in permanent check.. respectively, so that I never have to think or worry about my daily food and drink consumption. #BeastMode! :D lol.

I am with You on the workouts MagsJ, went back finally the gym reopened after a year closure. Surprisingly I kept my normal weight, but fora month now my regular eating habits have been disrupted since my oral surgery about two weeks ago.

Have You ever been on a fast, though?

Last time, years ago went on one, just to test my resilience and after 13 days and 12 hours I caved in. It was grueling , to say the least.

If you mean 24hr or long Lenten fasts, then yes.. though I’ve unintentionally fasted for days at a time when I lost my appetite, or for weeks on end during the height of my fatigue when I couldn’t get out of bed let alone cook or eat.. bad times / very dark days.

Dinner for me yesterday, and also to be today’s.. T-bone steak seared with a Camembert topping, served with a steamed courgette side.. no! make that a celeriac and lettuce colcannon side, today.. couldn’t finish it all.. now following dinner with half an orange, from yesterday.

..a simple Brie n crispbread and a very large mug of black tea, dinner.. having had my eggs n coffee breakfast whilst on the phone with my ISP for over an hour, helping me reconnect to the internet, it’s already been a very long day.. especially as I was also on the phone after that, chasing-up unresolved requests.

So an early night for me, with an orange and water supper.. and the internet. :lol:

..walked all the way up the high-street, to go buy some food supplies for the cat and I, and as I was at the till I realised that I’d left my card at home.. I left the store, leaving the items at the till, and will duplicate the process tomorrow.. this time with card in tow.

So today’s dinner, being.. sweet-potato and celeriac soup. :P

..the soup was made and had, the remainder of which was used as a base for the chicken and courgette broth that I just made and devoured just now. Yesterday’s courgette-omelette and Saturday’s lamb-loin chops and vegetable were equally good.

The soup tasted better x 10, 3 days on.

Buying a blackcurrant jam to top the cheese with was a bad idea.. it’s high FODMAP and so triggered my PFS.. the Net said a marmalade is best, so marmalade it is.. the inflammation is already on its way out, and I’ll live to see another day.

An early dinner.. of lamb carry, and coriander and rose petal infused rice.
I’ve gotten in the habit of eating dinner earlier, if I can.. now that appetite permits.

Today’s dinner.. a lightly spiced parsnip, carrot, and Camembert soup. :chores-utensils:

..spiced, with a mild (branded) curry powder blend.. a perfect blend of Ingredients: Coriander, Turmeric, Onion, Cumin, Ginger, Garlic, Galangal, Lemongrass, White Pepper, Cayenne.

Should look like this..

On this day I have finally decided to abandon my Ketogenic diet, which I have been doing with intermittent fasting. It has been great for reducing pain and inflammation. My blood work is improved. HDL up , triglycerides are down, A1C is also starting to go down.
I have stopped taking Lansoprazole, Statins and Calcium Channel Blockers. I have also lost 35lbs since January.
But that weight loss was 75% in the first 2 months; 25% in the second two months, and the last 2 are characterised by up and down maintenance.

So, it is time for a change of strategy.
I am adopting a herbivore diet. So I just popped to Lidl to get myself £20 worth of grass-fed steak. I am now looking forward a couple of hours for my eating window to open up..

Those deep orange pumpkins are the best.. better than Butternut, for both flavour and texture.

Those blue and grey/whiteish ones have the most amazing 'meaty' texture and are actually deep
orange in colour inside, and goes well -steamed- with meat dishes.. I find all those other pumpkins
too marrowy, and so bland.

When you say “a herbivore diet” you really do mean ‘a herbivore diet’. (Natural) herbivores sure taste good.
