Out of town. Food bought at the local supermarket.
Roast beef and cheddar sandwich with veg on buttered sourdough bread. Mustard. The Brussels Sprouts are roasted with garlic, parmesan and uh oh, olive oil. Pinot noir.
So what's been going on since my last post?
For the last couple weeks, I've been doing a relaxed version of TCD.
Eating mostly from the list of less than optimal food list.
Meaning, pizza. Quite a bit of pizza. And ice cream. Only the kind made with cream and sugar. No PUFAs!
I'm happy to report that although I haven't lost weight, I haven't gained either.
Today is twelve weeks until TSC. Time to eat mostly from the optimal food list.
Tonight's dinner will be my favorite, steak and buttered rice.
I'll post a pic.
Much to my delight, I have discovered many desserts without PUFAs.
For example, lemon butter cake.
Butter, sugar, flour, eggs, milk, vanilla, sour cream.
I added some raspberries. Topped it with whipped cream after the photo.
Stair climb in Las Vegas on Sunday.
Reservations at Old Homestead steakhouse on Saturday.
I know what my pre-race dinner will be.
Old Homestead burger 10oz dry-aged patty, foie gras butter, cheddar, duck-fat fries
The fries are fried in duck fat!
Update....This was as good as it looks. So good that I ate it on Saturday and Monday!
Yesterday I had an official weigh in for a DL event.
127 lbs, right in the middle of my weight division.
That's after consuming excessive stearic acid in Las Vegas. The eating fest continued when I returned home too.
I kept to my daily 20 hour fast, other than that, all bets were off (betting....las vegas reference).
I fully expected to have eaten my way out of my weight division. Instead, I'm smack dab in the middle.
I did have my share of non PUFA carbs, However, most of my meals centered around protein.
This way of eating seems to have naturally shifted my meals to Carnivore.
On the road.
The town I’m in doesn’t have a Neapolitan style pizza place.
No problem. I brought one with me.
Also, Sunday’s leftover steak.
Here’s what I did.
Warm steak in my portable burner. Pizza is patiently waiting..
Next step, steak on pizza. Cold slice on a medium setting for 2 min. Sprinkle couple drops of water in pan. Cover and cook on low for one more minute.
And here’s what you get.
Crispy bottom. Melty cheese goodness. Top with arugula and a squeeze of lemon.
Repeat until all the pizza is eaten.
The pizza experiment has to be put on hold.
Not because I’m sick of pizza!
It’s because I’m traveling to towns without local pizza.
I don’t want to eat the doughy fast food pizzas. I’m sure they are full of PUFAs and chemicals. That ain’t pizza!
Going forward, pizza is on the menu if it’s a local joint. In the meantime, back to TCD.
