What have you been eating recently?

Recommended Posts

Today's episode of Eat It Before It Goes Bad stars "perogies", with special guests "half this bell pepper is mouldy" and "why do we have have so many partially-used red onions in the fridge".

 

(In the grand tradition of threads like What Have You Been Reading Recently and What Have You Been Listening To Recently, use this thread to talk about, well, food you've been eating recently. Drinks too; we're lenient like that. New recipe that you just tried out? Cooking advice? Fancy-pants restaurant that you just visited and want to brag about? Chat about it here!)

Eggs Greybright, a savory fried bread and eggs dish I'm working on, mostly settled but I need to fine-tune the proportions ofr ingredients. I eat it most days for breakfast. I'm also going to add one more touch that I used to love as a teenager, to make it more special.

 

Rinsed, reduced sodium canned beans, 2oz frozen ground beef, 1 lb. bag of frozen vegetables, with black and red pepper and extra virgin olive oil, maybe oregano or something.

 

Whole milk Greek yogurt with cinnamon, imitation vanilla flavor, and obscene amounts of unsweetened cocoa powder and aspartame.

Chicken. I enjoy chicken.

Lots of fruit and herbal tea by the pot.

McDonald's McDoubles and McChickens. I walk to and from McDonald's for 5 miles, and order just a McDouble or a McChicken three days, then a fancier sandwich as a reward for making it there all four days. I'm still eating at a big calorie deficit and working out my cardiovascular system, and eating the above meals most of the rest of the time keeps the sodium and other crap down.

I've lost 15 pounds in 2 months. Pretty happy about that.

Today, I have eaten two nutrition shakes, an apple, and broccoli, tuna, and rice with cheese sauce. I will likely have a snack later this evening as well. Like ADoS, I am also eating at a calorie deficit.

 

Edit: I did have a snack. It was popcorn.

This summer I became the proud owner of a set of Chasseur cookware.

 

My favourite thing to cook is a variation of Normandy Pheasant.

 

So I begin by cooking a lot of onions, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and maybe some parsley root in butter on a big pan. That goes into the bottom of the dutch oven. Then I season a chicken. Last time I seasoned it with sage, a bit of lemon pepper, rose pepper and thyme. Then I fill up the dutch oven with sliced apples. My mother in law was close to critical condition from overeating last time we brought her over. I also had some sourdough bread from some ridiculously overpriced and fancy bakery. Was worth it.

 

And then there's the wine. I very much prefer red wine, but I'll settle for obscene amounts of white wine or rose. 

 

I like ending an enormous meal with ice cream. Vanilla ice with strawberries and some warm chocolate sauce. Whipped cream, too.

Lots and lots of lentils.

 

—Alorael, who makes them by the giant vat and then goes through them steadily for a week. He was off the stuff for a while, but easy, tasty, and filling is a hard combination to give up.

Somehow I'd always taken you for a Pythagoreanist. Just how wrong I was!

 

What kind of wine do you drink with that?

If you were roleplaying some game or other, what kind of character would Alorael be? What about Nine thousand six hundred and three?

I have actually no idea what you mean.

 

—Alorael, who does not drink... wine. Much. Certainly not regularly with dinner.

How about religiously. :)

Sure. Except not for the most recent holiday, because it was Yom Kippur, famously devoid of eating or drinking anything. So I guess I could say I religiously don't drink wine, but I probably wouldn't have anyway.

 

—Alorael, who encourages a return to regularly scheduled discussion of what everyone consumes, not just him. There's a whole world of nomming and guzzling to discuss!

I'm wondering what to cook tonight. I could cook lasagna, and I could cook fish.

 

Maybe I should cook both!

 

I'll describe the lasagna later. Stay tuned!

Pythagoras was famously opposed to beans, and apocryphally let himself get murdered rather than fleeing through a bean field. A Pythagorean diet shuns meat, fish and beans. (I have no idea whether this was supposed to extend to other legumes like lentils, though.)

I've repeatedly been told that I don't eat very well (basically mostly sugar and cereal, because I'm too lazy to cook) and am at risk of inheriting my dad's type2 or at the very least become overweight in my thirties. Since I am in my thirties now, I've decided I should probably change my habits a bit. :/

 

One of my favorite easy recipes is an Andalusian tapas consisting of spinach and fried chickpeas. There are several recipes online and I don't really stick to any one of them, but these are some variants:

(I usually just cook the spinach for a few minutes before transferring it to a pan with olive oil, adding the spices and chickpeas.)
