About white Italians, Sussex, Danish country and a lot of eggs

It looks like keeping the Sussex rooster is a success. No more crowing at 1:30 AM, no more bullying, no more bad behavior all in all. It’s nice to see how friendly and well behaved poultry can be towards each other. Since we slaughtered all the faverolles the other day our rooster has become new […]

Part two of my experiment is not really working for me either

Since 15th of October I’ve been on part two of my experiment, the Low Carb High Fat diet. First let me say that the food is very tasty and that I haven’t had any problems about staying on a strict diet – well maybe except for having a night cap now and then. For the […]

Four new young hens in the coop

Since we started eating LCHF, we’ve eaten enormous amounts of cheese (full fat), cottage cheese, cream cheese, cream, butter, olive oil, coconut oil and eggs.

I have a rule that I will not experiment with other people before I myself know how the treatment feels. That’s why I became my own first gallstone patient. Earlier I used to be very fond of eggs, and an egg yolk contains a lot of cholesterol. Therefore I was aware that I eventually had […]

Shopping in my childhood

Yesterday I looked a bit more into all my parents pictures and found an old one of a man who looked slightly familiar. I couldn’t really make out who he was or where the picture was taken. Not until I took a magnifying glass to look at the street sign and came to see what […]

Christmas vacation – day 3

It’s my birthday – 57 years – my goodness, where did the years go? When I look in the mirror or see a picture of myself I sometimes wonder what happened. This is not me, I’m not this old! On the inside I could still be 21 or 30, and the wrinkly and grey haired […]

Kernel-bread with chocolate

The fifth of November I told you about the pros and cons about wheat and gluten. Back then I gave you a recipe for a kernel-bread with cheese and without gluten and I promised you another recipe without gluten and with chocolate. Here it is: Ingredients: 75 g linseeds 75 g pumpkin seeds 75 g […]
