No Meat Week: Wednesday

1. I had a roast beef and veggies sandwich at the deli while waiting for my doctor’s appointment. I clean forgot about the no meat thing. Dave stated that he had not known that the ‘no meat thing’ was “for lunches too”. Jeez.

2. It’s been raining and raining and fucking RAINING so I haven’t been to the shops in a few days. So when I went to the kitchen to make chickpea curry to eat after dancing THERE WERE NO TOMATOES and I suddenly broke my brain.
We got home from dancing and THERE WERE STILL NOT TOMATOES and my brain was twice as broken and Dave was MAKING THE WRONG SUGGESTIONS so crazy girl suggested take away and then there was Thai take away and it was good.

3. Some days some people are just nuts.

4. I am really really tired of all this carbohydrate action. I do not like the way my belly feels really full. Buggered if I know how to make low-carb veggie meals, though. Perhaps I will figure it out tomorrow…

5. Bloody Dave will make bloody stir fry because it is after Wednesday now, and this is when I run out of shopping and cooking steam.



  1. Hullo spanky pants. I’ve been doing low-carb for about 2 months. There are plenty of vego low-carb options.

    You can do eggs and/or cheese with salads. Fried haloumi, scrambled eggs, baked cheesy cauliflower etc. If you want to go vegan, then beans, chickpeas, tofu, tempeh, nuts, nutritional yeast, coconut cream etc. are your fwens.

    As for carb replacements, instead of flour, you can use psyllium husk, xanthan gum or nut butters to thicken sauces (mmm satay sauce).

    Instead of noodles, I recommend strips of zucchini, lightly blanched. There exists miraculous things known as konnyaku or shirataki noodles or blocks. And roasted finely-chopped cauliflower comes close to rice in consistency.

    Onya for giving meat-free a go, anyway!

  2. Thanks for this sensible reminder. We did a lower-carb dinner tonight, and I feel much better. It’s not that I’m not good at eating a lot (I am), it’s just that I found the sudden load of carbs a bit harsh. I guess that’s why we should eat unprocessed grains – filling, less clumpy in your guts.
