What are you guys eating today?

This morning I had a bunch of blended up bananas (6 of them) with vitamin powder in it. for lunch I had a huge muffin. And tonight I just ate a large potato with ketchup and a pomegranate LOTS of water today as usual.

It might sound light but trust me today is a nice break from my usual feasting habits. I always wondered what kind of food we are all eating, all over the Country.

Red Cabbage

Red Cabbage with onion and apples, grass fed beef.
Apples and blackberries.
Paleo.

we ate, which is, in such times--

a miracle. :) After reading a few things on DP today I am astounded that *we* are all still eating. Still breathing.

For now there is food--

Chicken sausages (Italian), cabbage gratin and mashed potatoes with sour cream and butter (for those who eat potatoes); those who don't eat potatoes had baked winter squash--

It was good; it was heavy--it's cold where we are.

Tonight a little pheasant (killed 4 weeks ago) seared in olive oil, pepper and garlic. Then Steam Broiled in it's own juices.

Andouillie sauted in garlic and onion and topped with whole cream to be served over the Birds sitting on angel hair pasta.

Nothing I wouldn't cook for my lovely bride.

LoL! Not LUCKY! I shared over 600 pounds of tomatoes, 200 lbs of

peppers with friends and neighbors. I plant and grow multiple pounds of veggies for many people. They bring me deer, quail, rabbits even Nutria,etc for my efforts. I NEVER ASK! The really great thing is I supply SEED to many,many more and when TSHTF They will hopefully take care of me. If not , Not to worry for I look for NO one to take care of me. I do it for my self.

PS: First time I have ever eaten a pheasant! Lol! Done plenty robins, crows and blackbirds but never a pheasant!

When necessary you eat what you must. A little

seasoning and a little gravy or rice makes a great deal of difference. Take the bird or Nutria and soak 24 hours in 1-3 tablespoons(Balsamic is best) of vinegar and the rest water. Cook in the oven or fry in deep oil. you will NEVER know it is a blackbird. Nutria should be rendered down in Bacon fat until tender. I promise, it is most tender and has a great chicken/pork taste. Heck if you saw how chicken was treated you would NEVER purchase one form the store. LoL!.

Angel hair pasta

with mushroom sauce.

4-5 cloves crushed/chopped garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, 1 or 2 boxes of mushrooms sliced thin, 1/2 cup dry white wine, all cooked in cold pressed organic olive oil. Top with fresh grated romano cheese and fresh cilantro.

Don't know if it's healthy, but it sure tastes good!

Angel hair pasta...

...is the only kind of pasta I like. Although I'm female, I must always have chicken or beef...rarely starches. I don't know why. Your dish would be most excellent with chicken breasts! Mmmm!

I refer to the book "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by

Dr. Weston A. Price, and the cookbook based on it "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon, founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Very fascinating, and you can get them through DP Amazon link. I'm learning the incredible benefits of making traditional bone broths as a basis for soups, stews etc., of making your own yogurt (has to be fermented for 24 hours to use up the lactose (milk sugar) and create enough probiotics. All grains, beans, legumes must be soaked overnight in water with a small amount of acidic medium like vinegar, lemon juice, buttermilk or yogurt (like for oatmeal), in order to de-activate the phytic acid which are hard to digest and block absorption of minerals. Am going to learn to ferment vegetables next which preserves them and provides natural probiotics. These are all easy to do. It's amazing how much nutrition has been lost for the sake of convenience.

Debbie

Have you seen...

...Sally Fallon? She looks really overweight, at least in the pictures I've seen of her.

A few weeks ago, I began following the recommendations of Dr. McDougall (author of "The Starch Solution") because he's thin and looks terrific.

All I know is I've felt much better as a result of just following McDougall's advice about 80% than I did when I followed Fallon's advice 100%, and my clothes fit better too.

Debbie's picture

The traditional preparations of food as catalogued by Dr. Price

precluded Sally Fallon. His photos showed healthy people not overweight at all. You can't go by just one person, I've seen Price Foundation chapter leaders who follow the diet and are very slim and healthy looking. However, everyone has to do what they feel best on. I feel that the info on the traditional preparations of bone broths, the beans-grains-legumes and fermented vegetables and raw dairy is of vital importance for good health.

Sally Fallon's book...

..."Eat Fat, Lose Fat," which I ignorantly bought a long time ago, is a far cry from Dr. Price himself, who actually recommended a vegetarian diet. The Weston Price Foundation shouldn't be in his name.

I now listen to medical experts who look fantastic themselves and who, like Dr. Price, are unanimous that a diet high in meat, poultry, and dairy is a prescription for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Cordain, Atkins, Fallon, Sears, Davis -- they're all pretty fat in their pictures and they look pretty sick too, just the way I felt when I listened to them:

eat fat, get fat and or

eat fat, get fat and or tired. sally fallon has herself put on some pudge. Its usually people with fat burning genes who tote the eat fat lose fat. We either burn sugar or we burn both fat and sugar efficiently. The ones that burn fat and sugar efficiently are the ones who you think can eat anything and stay thin. the really thin ones usualyl its an absorption problem. But we are all thin and most efficient on a high carbohydrate low fat low protein diet. minimal animal products.

Thats fruits veggies and starch foods eat until you drop. no animal products namely dairy or meat, and you're on the quick path to being super fit and lean. look up the 80/10/10 diet or youtube "The Starch Solution"

So true!

But you're preaching to the choir here. I already have been following The Starch Solution. First, it was recommended to me by a popular plastic surgeon, who said that an animal-based diet makes people age much faster than a starch-based diet. He recommends a starch-based diet to all his patients to fight aging.

That was enough to make me look it up, and what I found out about all the other things animal and milk protein causes -- heart disease, cancer, arthritis, obesity -- was alarming, to say the least.
