Peat type meals
My creepy looking hand when it gets cold. Yuck.
Here’s a selection of the things I’ve been eating this week, most nice, one pretty disgusting.
Breakfast, pretty typically:
This was a study day at home, I prefer to get stuck in and then stop after half an hour to eat. Two eggs, salt, half a litre of OJ, milky coffee. Calculator is a little too high in xeno-estrogens for regular consumption.
What I typically bring to work- half a litre of skimmed milk, 2 carrots, coconut oil, half a litre of OJ (having drank the first half for breakfast) and some eggs and cheese, or maybe cottage cheese or cold shellfish.
I eat my carrots in work bugs bunny style, with a tablespoon of coconut oil straight up:
And when I’m at home, I have the luxury of my food processor, so they get the carrot salad treatment- dressed in lemon juice, salt and coconut oil:
A home lunch:
Cottage cheese and tinned peaches in sugar syrup
Dinners are usually lighter than they used to be, but I have a little custard and fruit or milk and honey about an hour before bed. Here’s some beef broth with sieved tomato:
And another night I treated myself to something a little more starchy, mashed turnip (rutabaga) with broth, butter and cheese:
I actually couldn’t finish that bowl. Simple sugars throughout the day appear to better regulate my appetite and I don’t cram my stomach in the evenings. Maybe it’s also not being as used to starch as my main carbohydrate. It was delish though, especially with plenty of salt:D (which totally warms me up).
Continuing the salt success, I tried a Peat special- sugared and salted milk with gelatin stirred in (I drank it hot so the gelatin hadn’t gelled up yet). It was pretty bad, I like salty things but not salty milk:( I also find hot milk makes me phlegmy whereas cold milk doesn’t. I think I can’t handle the milk proteins once they’re denatured. Boke, won’t be repeating that experiment. I think I like my salt with fish, broths and eggs!
Yucky milk concoction.
I am still noticing better appetite on this diet. I’m not as ravenous as on a paleo type diet. I still get cold but I now have more spells where my hands are comfortably warm. And my period this time was not as crampy:) I’ve also began to lose some weight, jeans are noticeably looser this week. I imagine if I drank nothing but salty milk I would lose my hips very quickly!
