We are weak beings. At least I am from time-to-time. I had a real craving for a takeaway curry last week and caved. Not only was the curry terrible in the end, I’m sure it was cooked with rapeseed (aka canola oil). Worse still, the next day I was at a golf outing and someContinue reading “Rapeseed Strikes Again”
I’m not a monk when it comes to my keto lifestyle. I do like a drink once in a while, but anything with a lot of carbs is out of the question. I can tolerate an occasional glass of red wine, but over time it will affect my blood glucose negatively. Which brings us nicelyContinue reading “Whisky Review”
Is it just a British thing or has the whole world gone gin crazy? Everyone and his uncle seems to be putting out a new brand of gin. Once I moved beyond mixers and beer and started drinking like an adult, gin and tonics were a lovely summer staple. Of course, I haven’t touched oneContinue reading “Keto Gin and Soda”
Well, I’m very close to cracking it. I started this blog fifteen months ago as a hobby, but I thought it would help me make a few more changes to my lifestyle. Why? In order to get my blood glucose down to 5.7 mmol/L. My last two HbA1c readings, which is a three month bloodContinue reading “Three-Day Fast Results”
Following Dr Fung’s fasting protocol of three, thirty-six-hour fasts per week has really helped with my glucose levels. I eat pretty much what I want keto-wise, and I did some experimenting to see how much very, dark chocolate I can get away with on eating days. Not as much as I hoped, but still moreContinue reading “Fasting Update”
There were some leftovers in the fridge that I played around with to spice up my yolk only omelette. My better half had made tacos for herself the night before (I was fasting), so I took some taco meat, homemade salsa and manchego and folded it into my omelette. This was maybe the best omeletteContinue reading “Omelette Odyssey Continues”
We’re at the end of the line folks. The final chapter is essentially how to follow a paleo-diet. This is not a surprise as both authors have advocated paleo elsewhere. The only real difference now is that “Many have used this type of diet [paleo] successfully but have failed to consider the importance of food-basedContinue reading “Eat Like a Nutrivore”
After another summary of the book’s key arguments, which is really unnecessary, we get to this chapter’s crux: can monocrop agriculture be replaced with regenerative systems and feed the planet’s population (give or take a billion people)? The short answer is yes. However, our authors admit a problem: it takes more land to “produce well-managedContinue reading “Feeding the World”
Some readers will recall that I was hit with some really bad pseudo sciatica before Christmas. It’s long gone, thank God, but after Christmas I was waking up with some lower back tightness. Six weeks ago, I got a minor flare up of pain and a hint of sciatica again. I went back to myContinue reading “Inversion Table for Back Pain”
Long-time readers will know I have some hens in the back garden. Gerty, Ester, Rosebud and Ginger give us four eggs a day. That means I eat a lot more egg yolks (I’m allergic to the whites) than I ever did in the past. Egg yolks are one of the more nutrient dense foods outContinue reading “Egg Yolk Omelette with Tomato, Basil and Cheddar”
