Thanks OD. Is there something in the fish? Looks dark on the left hand side.

I'd put a couple of garlic, herb and lemon flavoured blobs of butter inside the fish. It did not look that dark in reality, more like a burned butter color, maybe picked up a remnant of blood from the (scraped out and rinsed out ) blood vein. I overcooked the fish a little. 35 mins instead of 25.

Glad to see your weight loss progressing. Maybe room for some fish or veggie ideas. I recommend the bell pepper with sliced tomatoes, anchovies, garlic and olive oil, if that's not too carb rich. Tasty as hell.

I find it difficult to find anything about pork rinds healthy.

I give myself a free dinner every ten days, and a free day every 31st of the month.
A mini vacation of sorts.
The last time this coincided, I was excited about it for days ahead of time. This time I didn't even notice it until dinner.



Yeah they were not good at all

Nothing about pork rinds is healthy, they just don't have many carbs. Do you literally do the 31st or is it the last day of the month?

Tonight's keto dinner



Made taco salad and a keto wrap made with pork rinds and cream cheese. Made a chalupa like item.

Wash that down with a nice refreshing coca-cola or Pepsi. You have been doing so good and now you should reward yourself with whatever you like the most. I'm fairly certain that's what diets are all about. Eat food that is good for you but doesn't taste that great so you can reward yourself and load up on the good/bad stuff.

sour cream? That can't be good for any diet.

There are tons of ways you can eat very healthy while eating foods that taste great and are very satisfying.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Broccoli salad. Chop up broccoli florets and mix in dried cranberries, sunflower seeds. Add a mixture of light mayo with balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sugar and cayenne. Whisk until a liquid consistency. Don't go overboard with the Mayo mixture just enough to coat the florets. So tasty and satisfying and very healthy for you. Can eat as much as you want. Great for your shi%= the next day too!

Chic pea / cucumber salad - mixed together can of chickpeas, sliced cherry tomatoes, diced cucumbers, sliced Kalamata olives.... you can add a few diced pieces of a firm cheese if you like. Add some olive oil and balsamic vinegar with pinch of salt and pepper and cayenne to taste. Tasty, fulfilling, healthy, and lots of protein.

Fish again tonight... But not at all the low-carb healthy version...

Fresh from the village chippy:-

Fish, chips and mushy peas with the obligatory buttered bread to make the chip butties and mug of tea to wash it down.
This was an absurdly large portion and I didn't eat all the chips.

Do you guys get 'malt vinegar'? It's barely available on the European mainland and I think it might be a particularly British thing.

Sorry about the slapdash presentation. It was going cold.

Talk about a stereotypical meal

Absolutely $:o) The sort of thing we'd have once every one or two weeks. The single 'portion' that I bought tonight, fed 3 of us and some got thrown away. It used to be a cheap staple takeaway meal, but the price of fish has shot up in recent years. Definitely what we would have if we are on 'a day out to the seaside.'

I like chips, but only when dipping them in sour cream and onion dip. I like fries with mayo and ketchup.

LOL. I'm not surprised. Mostly bought from the chippy as an accompaniment, they are usually horridly grey from overcooking. The canned variety tend to be overly green because of colorings.

Rookie mistake.

Fat, in itself, is not bad for you. And on Keto, you NEED fat.

Non and low fat stuff has a bunch of weird chemicals in it.

Lastly, sour cream is gross.

No. It's 2 rashers of fairly lean bacon, 2 eggs, handful baby tomatoes, 5 baby leeks chopped, half slice of bread fried in olive oil and a small can of baked beans. All washed down by the mandatory mug of tea.

I recommend you watch the youtube vid in the other thread. It does not deride keto or any other kind of diet, but it does put calorie counting in its place.

This woman had it all figured out. I recall going to a fast food joint years ago after a night of drinking and all sorts of no good. I believe we were at a Wendy's. The woman was in front of me placing her order. She was about 5'4" and weighing in at approximately 250 lb.

She ordered a chicken cheese sandwich with light mayo but extra cheese, large fries... No make that medium fries with a side of cheese sauce please, and a Coke... No no no please make that a Diet Coke she barked.

I presume somewhere today that she is well on her way to 300 lbs, but thankfully she is not at 350 lb due to the diet coke discipline.

I'm kind of slightly allergic to artificial sweeteners, can't stand them. I'll never eat or drink anything out on the market now, which is good, because I'm convinced those drinks make people fat. Obese fat. Noticeably obese.

Italian sausage. Bell peppers. Fried the sausage then cooked it all in white wine, butter, lemon, oregano, garlic, bay leaves, salt and pepper. One of the best things I've ever made.

Lil mimolette cheese went great with the sausage.

Brunch today was 1 digestive biscuit dunked in my tea.

OK. Let's play spot the carbs* in tonight's feast. Salad with attitude:-

Seared tuna, yellow bell pepper, grated carrot, lettuce, bean sprouts, sliced leeks, mushrooms*, baby tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, pickled onion, boiled egg, and tonight's mystery guest: Two chopped anchovy fillets. All drizzled with a simple mix of olive oil and lemon juice.
It was a monster plateful and left me quite full. Washed down with very diluted blackcurrent squash.

*Yes there were some carbs. I'm not on Keto.
** Who's going to be first to say 'Raw mushrooms on a salad? Yuck. The dirty b45t4rd'


This photographing my food has a purpose: It helps me think ahead and focus on my choices.

Seared tuna, yellow bell pepper, grated carrot, lettuce, bean sprouts, sliced leeks, mushrooms*, baby tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, pickled onion, boiled egg, and tonight's mystery guest: Two chopped anchovy fillets. All drizzled with a simple mix of olive oil and lemon juice.
It was a monster plateful and left me quite full. Washed down with very diluted blackcurrent squash.

*Yes there were some carbs. I'm not on Keto.
** Who's going to be first to say 'Raw mushrooms on a salad? Yuck. The dirty b45t4rd'



That's fully Keto compliant, better spit it out!

And ew, raw mushrooms?

:)


Maybe GWAE would like to try the same. Consider it a gift from me to him. The tiny slivers of anchovy made it, Every forkful was a tastebud surprise, I completely forgot the leftover sweetcorn and peas in the fridge.

Hmmmmm. what to plan for tomorrow. I'm thinking something with chicken...... Oh I know..... Mohammed's Mum's Jeera Chicken. I'll post up the secret recipe. That too is probably Keto compliant and bloody fantastic. OMG, my mouth is frothing up thinking about it.

GWAE, this is what you'll need....
1 whole medium chicken, fresh.
1 medium onion.
1 or 2 medium hot red chilli
1 or 2 medium hot green chilli
4oz butter. You can use metric butter if you wish.
1 level tablespoon whole jeera seeds (cumin)
1/2 level teaspoon ground jeera (cumin powder) optional.
2 cloves garlic.

Large pan with lid.
a couple of hours.
It's NOT overly spicy. Trust me.

*I LOVE MUSHROOMS raw or cooked. . . And no. I don't wash or peel the blighters.

I will try it. I am glad you put cumin in parenthesis cause I had no idea.

I love raw mushrooms but only the whitecaps or whatever they are called. I am not a fan of the other weird mushrooms.

When I used to work night shifts, one of my colleagues, a guy of Persian origin, used to bring in jeera chicken that we'd all feast on. It was bl006y delish and we all used to look forward to having a shift coincide with his. I got him to get me the recipe off his mum, before he left. Simple and cheap to make, you can have it as a supper time treat on its own, or could serve as a side dish to an Indian or Persian feast. It is NOT overly spicy. The amount of butter that goes into it is ridiculous. I think the orig recipe called for 8 oz $:o) You can cook, chill and microwave it later.

Mushrooms are a wonder food. But you should wash because sometimes there is fungus on them.

This sounds great. What kind of chili's you use? They vary a lot in size and stuff.

I was on my way to quitting the rinds, because they are fried in vegetable oil. Several of the prominent internet crackpots and anonymous Reddit users with whom I trust my health assure me that veggie oil is very very bad. Especially for men.

But I found these which are fried in pork fat, making them extremely healthy.

Pig fat fried in pig oil.
What could possibly be unhealthy about that?

Mushrooms on general sale in the UK and EU are generally considered very safe. Most come from Poland.
Eaten raw, they release very few nutrients because of their thick cell walls, so excellent filler on a salad.

The chilli's, : I usually buy a small pack of 3 or 4 mixed chillis each of roughly large finger size.

Recipe and instructions to follow.

I buy these from Walmart. They are pretty good.

At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Right... Previously from memory, I got the ingredients a bit wrong.
Here it is straight from the hand-written recipe from Mohammad's Mum

1 Whole oven ready chicken chopped into roughly 1 inch chunks. Bone and skin on. Obviously throw away the spine which is just bone.
1 whole small garlic BULB ( skinned )
1 smallish onion. ( or half a large one )
4 - 6 finger sized chilies. ( I use half red, half green)
2 heaped teaspoons cumin seeds
2 oz of butter.
1 level teaspoon of salt

Chop the chilies, onion and garlic finely, especially the chilies and garlic.

Heat a large flat cooking pot, which has a lid, and add the butter
As butter is melting, add the chilies. onions and garlic
Stir well until butter is melted and very hot.
Add the cumin seeds and salt.
Stir well for a minute or so then add all the chicken pieces.
Stir well to coat the chicken.
Leave to cook for 40 minutes on low to medium heat, with the lid on. Stir, just once or twice to keep the chicken coated and stop it burning.
The chicken will release it's own water, which will help to effectively steam the meat.

Serve warm as finger food. You can chill it and microwave later, up to the next day.

Enjoy. I plan to make this tomorrow.

You shouldn't live off it but it's fine.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/the-truth-about-fats-bad-and-good

There is a common sense element to this. We ate stuff for many thousands of years and obesity was rare.

We changed our diet a few decades ago and now you can't walk down the street without seeing someone at 2x their ideal weight. And its getting worse. You see little kids who are blimps all the time.

So what did we change? It wasn't that people just started eating animal fats. That was the stuff we ate before.

If you didn't read the article Gamerfreak posted about the propaganda campaigns of the sugar industry, it's pretty good.

Sauteed mushrooms, pepper, and onions in butter. Cut up 2 chicken breasts, and added 2 tablespoons of teriyaki. Threw a little pepper in with the chicken for funsies. Inthink this is a good meal for keto or just healthy eating. 9 total carbs in entire meal.
