Trying to keep enough variation in what I’m eating to prevent boredom has meant various impulse buys from Amazon Now. Amazon bought Whole Foods recently and now I have so many more options available when I can’t be bothered to go out to the butchers. The latest purchase was a rack of pork ribs which I slow cooked for about 3 hours. Only downside is that I couldn’t smother them in sticky bbq sauce, but they were still super tasty.
What’s really interesting is that despite really enjoying the ribs, especially as I had pork loin steaks for lunch, I really felt like I was missing the satiation I get from beef. I’ll do more experimentation of the next week or so, but it may be that the higher fat content meats really do make me feel better and more satiated than the leaner meats. I’m actually yet to have chicken since starting this diet for the simple reason that it’s about the leanest meat available, and I can honestly say I’m not craving chicken in any way.Read More
