Knife Diets…

For reasons I shall go into anon, I am currently on a diet (lifestyle readjustment food plan). Not a very extreme diet, just the usual no dairy, no “bad fats”, no anything that tastes good diet. In other words, if you cooked it yourself and you didn’t fry it or use anything eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil like butter or eggs or smoked fish or worcestershire sauce then you can eat it. So its home cookin’ without the trimmings for me for a few months. One of the plus points is once things get back to “normal” I can keep up the home cookin’; this time with all the trimmings and all the benefits…

By never eating commercial hamburgers I can have brilliantly marbled beef at least once a month. By not buying ‘fried chicken’ I can have duck or goose confit whenever I fancy. By giving up gas-flushed mayonnaise-stuffed sandwiches I can fry my omelette in Echire butter. Losing the triple-whipped mochaccino gives me milk in my coffee and even leaves some spare for a slice of cheese with dinner.

By learning to fry properly and not allowing a mutant sebhorreic youth on minimum wage to abuse my dinner I can wolf enough fried goods to make myself heartily sick and still live longer than he will.
