On Food Fridays I will tell you about everything I ate that day. No matter if it is a good day or not: you will see it all.
I know the reaction of some people: that’s not normal to not eat anything before lunch. But I have a perfectly normal explanation: I had to cycle to the city to go swimming, so I didn’t want to eat right before working out because it will give me stomach cramps. So I got up at 8, was in the pool by 9.15, home by 11.30, then had to do some quick errands and cook and when I sat down to eat, it was 1 PM. But I wasn’t feeling “omg-I’m-so-hungry-i-could-eat-for-Africa” so all is good.
a mountain of cauliflower “rice” (about 300 grams of raw cauliflower fried with some oil, garlic and spices)
one portion of minced meat sauce (225 grams of minced turkey thighs, 100 grams of cream, seasonings)
about 15 grams of butter, a teaspoon of mayonnaise and sour cream,
5 grams of smoked pork (had a small snack before my meal was cooked)
2nd meal: 6.30 PM
10 grams of flax seeds
40 grams of cheese
10 grams of butter
After dinner we prepped some food for tomorrow since it’s going to be my other grandmom’s 80th birthday party (both of my grannies are born in 1933). So I snacked on some cheese, walnuts, mayo, sour cream and a very small pork chop.
In total about 1800 kcal. I’m also very pleased with my fat-to-protein ratio and net carbs should also be fine, I don’t worry too much about total carbs if they are below 40 grams (and it’s really hard for me to go over that limit).
Next Food Friday in a week!
