Intermittent fasting relies heavily on eating well and exercising.
I planned to fill the time when the kids aren’t here with the things I used to enjoy doing; running, gym, martial arts and cooking. My self-discipline needs a little work but it’s not far from where it should be.
Tonight, a pasta dish but this is for the carbs. 200 ml of whole milk to help ketosis, 3 rashers of streaky bacon, red, yellow and green peppers and salt and pepper to taste. It’s a bit of a celebration of the finding that we are healthier eating the right kind of fats, but i’m pretty sure if I don’t get exercising properly soon my Doc might disagree.
Pour the milk in the pan and add the pasta. The pasta that I failed to list in the ingredients above. Add some pepper. Bring the milk to the boil and then turn the heat down low.
Take a pair of scissors to the bacon and fry on a medium heat. Add some butter to the pan before hand. Add some butter to the list above too whilst you’re at it.
Finely slice the peppers and add them to the pan. Cook them until everything is…cooked.
Keep stirring the pasta. It will stick to the pan if you don’t.
At some point, I will either eat or dispose of that gingerbread thing.
Pretty happy with the finished article; it tasted amazing.
I guess you could sprinkle it with something green and nutritious. Or cheese. It’s a bit anemic.
