Well I was home a little late from work and I wanted to do some exercise before I ate – so time was a but limited. Nevertheless I managed to throw this together:
- 6 organic chicken wings – these are delicious beyond belief and I eat pretty much everything except the bones and gristle. They’re so easy to cook that even an idiot like me can do it: coat in olive oil, salt, pepper and dried basil, put in a tray in the middle of the oven 185°C for 1 hour, turning after 30 minutes. The skin’s cripsy and the meat soft, bloody super-yum! And not expensive either – around €3 for the packet from Delhaize – bio too!! No excuses…
- Then there’s a salad of course. I love salads and I ate them pretty much daily even when I wasn’t doing this low carb thing. This one isn’t especially fancy though, but it is BIG and it does contain a whole avocado. I feel salads without avocado are like sex with a condom – it’s nice, you want it, but it could be much, much better. For the rest it’s LOTS of leaves and roquette, bean sprouts, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, red pepper, olive oil – balsamic – salt & pepper
- Then there’s dessert – that’s a handful of blueberries, almonds and pistachios, with a very few salted peanuts as a treat – didn’t really enjoy those, they tasted synthetic, will avoid in future
- And last, but perhaps not least, I had a spoon of high EPA/DHA fish-oil that I bought on the way home – I’ll write about the importance of that another time
30 minutes before the meal I had 6 teaspoons of psyllium husk in water with a little lime juice. This stuff keep things moving along nicely inside, will also cover that at some point.
Now to bed…
