Gerry - what I DO eat :)

I eat eggs, bacon, all meats (including salami etc.), all fowl, all fish, all seafood, cheese, salad leaves, broccoli, cauliflower, courgettes, mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, shallots, peppers, bok choi, cabbage, chillies, turnips, aubergines, cream, yoghurt, berries (no other fruit, it's full of sugar), butter, olive oil - and some other stuff I forget off the top of my head.

Right now, I'm, only drinking black coffee, but most of the time I manage to incorporate some red wine, and vodka (or other spirit) into the diet, which is nice. I'm still using red wine reductions in sauces, plus had some dark rum in the prawn creole the other night :)

I find it a very easy way to eat, once you get used to not having the starchy stuff with it.

If Tesco's don't get here soon, it'll be smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast - oh, how I suffer!

Thanks for info. Can't imagine not eating bread... or pies, or potatoes, rice etc.; they're so basic.

For me, Gerry, its pasta I can not imagine being without! I'd say I eat it three times a week, minimum.

Pies are OK, homemade only as shop bought always whack the dreaded onion in them, but I could live without them.

Bread is good, but I could live without it.

Could not do without mashed potato!!!

Rice I could live without too, and I could live without meat no problem.

pies


"Pies are OK, homemade only "
Home-made here, James.
Spag for lunch today, probably once a week or even less often.
Bread is daily.

Pasta.

You don't buy anything ready made do you, Gerry? I only buy a little but I do have a few guilty pleasures! (A tin of oxtail soup to be had today is one of them!!!)

I love pasta! I'll eat it with parmesan grated on the top, macaroni cheese, or even just a little oil or butter. Also Nigella's marmite pasta recipe.

Not keen on spag bol though but will eat it if no onion, and I'm fussy with what shapes I buy. I don't buy spaghetti, its too fiddly, but again, will eat it if put in front of me. Also, if I order carbonara when eating out, I always ask them to use a different pasta, for the same reason.

This has reminded me, I must make a pasta pie again soon! I've not made it here for the guys I'm living with and I think it will go down a storm! :)

Hope all good with you, Gerry. Fine here. XX

Foods I could'nt eat.

Tripe, frogs legs and eel. Never had and never will....end of. I have eated some dodgy things whilst living in the Far East and Africa, but as I never quite knew WHAT it was, never really bothered me. My other half says sheeps eyes.

Fresh Coriander

I love curry, but can't abide fresh coriander. It took me years to work out what the dreadful taste was!

Tut, the booze is full of sugar. Stick to fruit with its natural sugars.

"If Tesco's don't get here soon, it'll be smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast - oh, how I suffer!"

One of my favourite breakfasts.

Actually the booze isn't full of sugar - there is none in spirits such as vodka, whiskey, gin etc. There is a small amount in red wine, not a lot if it's a dry red wine. Most of the sugar turns to alcohol during the fermentation process. It's true that the body likes to use the energy in alcohol before anything else, but it doesn't elevate your blood sugar levels in the same way that simple carbohydrates do - which is fine on a low carb diet :)

I won't eat.....

Oysters, lobster, prawns, squid, octopus, frogs legs, snails, currants and sultanas, nor tripe, rabbit, horse or donkey. Not too long a list, really.

I'm a bit fussy about buying 'processed' foods so usually make things from scratch. My first batch of sausages was excellent, and now I'm waiting for some venison to make up Gerry's recipe. I had the good fortune to be given some wild boar at the end of last year; it was killed in our hamlet and the hunters know we enjoy such meat (each of the 3 houses in the hamlet were given a couple of kilos of the boar). We have lots of deer running around too.

Foods you will not eat.

I used to be a fussy eater a a child and loathed vegatables, nearly all of them but when I was pregnant with my daughter I decided I needed to eat healthily for her sake and now I love them.
There are a few foods I choose not to eat like parsnips and peas because I don't really like the taste very much but if given them at someones house I would eat them.I'm not a fan of chocolate as I don't like the texture and I don't have a sweet tooth so would never choose to eat a pudding.
If starving I think we would all eat anything. In times past when there was rationing or similar I'm sure from what I've heard that people would eat whatever they could. It's only because we have so much choice nowadays that we can be so fussy.

Foods you will not eat

Will try most things. Don't like offal, but I try liver every time I cook it for hubby or the dog! Wouldn't give tripe the same respect. It looks utterly revolting. Don't like oysters but would try again. Would avoid meat that I knew was inhumanely cared for.

Foods I won't eat

I used to eat pigs feet and brawn when I was a toddler, with my gran - I would struggle with brawn now though.

Funniest ever was when husband ordered lamb in France but didn't realise it was brain. Looked like it was still thinking, lightly braised & scattered with parsley, "Voila, monsieur!". Laughed so much I nearly wet myself. (He ate it though.) I do love French food - especially the odd stuff.
