If I were to describe today in one word, it would be Bleurgh. Ravenous would be the second word, with Snoozy a close third. Apparently, gallivanting across the city at all hours of the night, in the rain, isn't the best plan, nor is sleeping with wet hair. However, leaping from my bus home to catch the supermarket on the dot of midnight, closing time, was genius as it allowed me to stock up on some essentials that got me through today. Whilst my eats were still perfectly Primal, my fingers are crossed that my upped carb consumption won't have any negative ramifications...
It started well - I scored a bit of a sleep-in, and the combination of an early dinner yesterday and a late breakfast today meant that my plateful of porchetta (yum!) broke a nineteen hour fast.
A couple of hours later, I finished off the last of last week's bacon.
Then I went back to bed at noon. That's right, noon. Why? Because I was drowsy and feeling a bit of a sore throat coming on. I really don't want to get sick - the year is winding down and work is so laid back, so I don't want to blow a sick day right now!
After snoozing off and on for a few delicious hours, I awoke with a bit of a sinus issue, so made an ultra-eggy almond pancake with a few blueberries, a little 100% cacao, and a dollop of whipped cream. Perfection!
The pancake kept me sated for a while, but my body was demanding more fat. I had some asparagus in the fridge that was also on its last legs, and since it's one of the only veggies from the weekly delivery that the guinea pigs won't touch, I figured it would do, so I sautéed it up in a hefty amount of organic butter. Oh my...
Meanwhile, I defrosted some lamb chops, and as the final food for the day, I grilled it up and scoffed it by hand. Now that's primal!
Apart from giving my body extra rest and consuming extra energy to help fight off these first signs of a cold, I took a super-dose of Vitamin D to boost my immune system. This is the first time I've had to apply 'primal medicine' - let's hope it works!
I won't be caught without thawed meat in the fridge again any time soon either - I have breakfast thawing as we speak: scotch fillet steak!
OH, and I nearly forgot to mention - after yesterday's pig-out/in, what was I greeted with when I hopped on the scale this morning? A full pound loss. I never say this, but... Boo-yeah.
Is technology eroding doctors’ clinical skills?
