Today is the Mid-Autumn Festival and to those celebrating, I hope you are having a lovely time with your loved ones.
For me, there is no festivity going on, in fact this year I am not indulging in any of these mooncakes.
So today, we went to tapau food at Addict Chicken Rice.
I put in an order for Roasted Chicken with Roasted Pork Rice for my partner and Lower Quarter Kampung Chicken for me, no rice obviously.
They accept payment by e-wallet which is good.
So there you go. My partner's meal. He cannot do without rice and would probably tell me, chicken rice with no rice, where got meaning? No complaints from him, so I assume this packet of chicken rice meets his expectations.
This is mine and oh yes, it was very good, fresh and tasty. But this portion is too little for me. I reckon I can eat half a chicken hah...hah... with some siew yoke thrown in for good measure.
Outside the shop, I spotted this little kitty. Girl probably looked like this when she was a kitten.
This was my partner's lunch yesterday at don't know-where. He is a rice man and he is fine eating loads of carbs. I can't eat like that, if I did, the brain fog and anxiety comes right back. I don't want that. A few moments of pleasure and a few hours (or a couple of days) of torture is not worth it.
This is my dinner. A hunk of steak, butter and eggs. Zero carbs. Nyum!
Of course you can eat half a chicken coz without rice/carbs you won't be full. I see you finally ate your chicken with at least a condiment of ginger paste. These condiments (besides soy & chilli dip) really make a difference. Hopefully you went to tapau at an odd hour coz the place looks deserted! >.<ReplyDelete
It's strange that you've been eating carbs your whole life (and feel relatively fine until you started this carnivore diet) but if you eat carbs now, you'll have to endure days of torture and your anxiety comes right back? It would seem that you might never be able to enjoy carbs again (not even on cheat days)! :O
We went there early, before 11am, that's why it was so quiet.Delete
Well, I thought I was fine and I thought I was relatively healthy but what a difference a change in diet made. I feel so much more alive and vibrant and awake! No more feeling depressed and anxious and I am quite calm and happy these days. You are quite right, after eliminating carbs from my system I become a lot more sensitive to it. I consider it a toxin LOL! I am quite happy with my new way of eating as I feel so well. My inflammation marker (c-reactive protein) dropped from 1.8 to 0.8 and I think this is remarkable.
I don't know what this inflammation marker is and what it represents (I don't see this in any of my yearly medical check-up/blood test results). Perhaps you may find out more if you do a full blood test or a full lipid study to check on total cholesterol components such as triglyceride, HDL & LDL. I don't think there will be any significant changes when one is eating differently for only 4 months as it can take years before anything develops. Just continue with your medical check-up on a yearly basis to ensure nothing is amiss. Take care.Delete
The test which includes c-reactive protein is a bit more expensive and you have to see which blood test package offers that. Yes, my test included triglyceride, HDL, LDL.Delete
Happy Mid Autumn to you. Nothing special today, just stay at home. Taste some mooncake, that is it. The poached chicken looked good. Make me want to eat chicken rice tomorrow. Lol.ReplyDelete
LOL! Poached chicken is one of my favorites.Delete
Happy mid autumn festival to you both and the two kids. ☺️ So this means the new shop is ok on their food taste. Aiyo, I cannot see poor little kitty. Hope little kitty will survive out there all alone.ReplyDelete
I also geram and kesian the kitty. When I tried to go near it, it ran away.Delete
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! We had pek chang kay too, just like you - it will be in my blog tomorrow. Your partner's meal sure looks good! Your auntie in NZ? I met somebody related to you in Auckland but I did not think she was married. Not that one, I guess.ReplyDelete
That person you met is my cousin! LOL!Delete
Zero carbs fully understand but Zero vegetable fiber......still need time to figure 'How"? hahahah!!ReplyDelete
Hmmm......the price seem like on higher side, luckily I just found a good chicken rice place near my neighbourhood, hehe. I think most of the place accept e-wallet payments now.ReplyDelete
Yeah, pricey. But as long as the food is good, can lah once in a while to visit.Delete
