What I Ate Yesterday – Day 96

zero carb animal kingdom meat only diet darlene michaud

Eat Meat!  Drink Water!  Get Rest!
(those are the words I live by)

See my Zero Carb playlist!


Yesterday – Monday 2/20 – Day 96

When I got up, I had my usual chug jug of hot water.

At 2:00pm, I had what you see on the plate above.  I broiled some chicken breasts which is my absolute favorite way to eat chicken.  I cooked some pork tenderloin and some sliced up beef.  Then I also had a mix of ground beef with cut up bacon ends.  I ate about half of what you see. Saved all the rest for later.

At 7:30pm, I cooked more ground beef along with some kielbasa sausage then I added all the leftovers from lunch except the chicken.  Ate a nice big plateful of that concoction!

At 2:00am, I got hungry again.  I was up very late making beads.  I cooked a very big hamburger patty and warmed up a whole chicken breast and chowed down!

Food that entered my mouth yesterday:  chicken, sliced beef, ground beef, pork tenderloin, bacon, kielbasa sausage and lots of delicious water.

IMPORTANT – My doctor totally approves of this!!! See this vlog to see how my appointment went!

This is the facebook group I’m in.  It’s a public group so you can read the posts without joining.

I will be talking about this new way of life often on my Youtube channel, so please subscribe and you won’t miss a thing!

This is the article that I stumbled upon by Kelly Hogan which got me immensely excited.   And this is Kelly’s blog.

PLEASE READ: Please remember that it’s MY CHOICE to eat the way I want. If you think this is unhealthy, know I’m not as concerned with physical health. I’m more concerned with my mental health. I’m on a mission to feel better mentally… without cravings!!! I’m willing to test this so you don’t have to! But what works for me might not work for you. I’m not doing this to lose weight. I’m doing this because I’m convinced that I’m overly sensitive to carbs and that I must stay away from them if there is any chance of me feeling better. I’m eating from the animal kingdom only, like the complete opposite of vegan. I know this upsets many, but I promise I won’t eat your pets. You are free to follow my progress/failures and you can even disagree with what I do. Just remember that I will get the last word because it’s my blog, my channel, my life! That’s the new me talking! (I think I’m growing balls! Let me look… yes, I see one starting to grow!)

Tuesday Chat – Dishcloth Life Hack. Tag Along to Walmart, Whispered Chat, Today’s Plans

chat-tuesday

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This girlie got up late today!  That’s because I was up until the wee hours last night.  Then the phone woke me early (I don’t answer) so I was up for a bit then managed to fall back to sleep.  Now I’m up for the day.  It’s after noon, so I must get busy!

For yesterday’s videos, I started out with a funny Life Hack about dishclothes.   Then I took you shopping with me inside Walmart.  And last but not least, since I was so awake and filled with energy, I did a whispering craft vlog (since my mother was sleeping) and gave you a sneak peek at some of the beads I’ll be listing on eBay on March 1st.

Today, I hope to start my newest Upcycled Fashion.  That series is fun and scary all at the same time! lol  I am pushing myself to do it as I know I’ll learn so much about designing clothing along the way.  Just hope I don’t have too many fails while learing.  But hey, even a monumental fail might get views.  Maybe even more views!  And fabric is never wasted.  I can always cut up a fail and use the fabric in crazy quilt blocks.

I guess that’s about it for now!  Have a great Tuesday!

Darlene
XOXO

1-2-3 Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe (from 1950)

1 2 3 peanut butter cookies

NOTE: I get messages asking me why I post these types of recipes while I’m following a zero carb animal kingdom only food plan.  My answer is because I’m following ZC, but I bet you’re not! Just because I eat a certain way does not mean I have to limit myself to sharing only meat recipes. I’m not the carb police! lol

Be sure you check out what I eat everyday!!!


1-2-3 Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe (from 1950)

A 1950 Bisquick ad featured Betty Crocker’s “1-2-3 Cooky” recipe. This recipe was promoted as “thrifty” because it cost 5 1/2 cents to make a dozen cookies and a large box of Bisquick yielded 390 cookies.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup peanut butter
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
2 cups Original Bisquick mix (or store brand)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar

Darlene’s Tips: You could add chocolate chips to the mix if you want!

DIRECTIONS:

Step 1:  Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, mix peanut butter and milk until smooth. Stir in Bisquick mix and vanilla until blended.

Step 2:  Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Roll tops in sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls, sugar sides up, 2 inches apart. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in additional sugar.

Step 3:  Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until centers are set and bottoms are light golden brown. Do not overbake. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool 15 minutes.

What I Ate Yesterday – Day 95 – What Did a Gulp of Milk Do To Me???

zero carb meat only diet darlene michaud

Eat Meat!  Drink Water!  Get Rest!
(those are the words I live by)

See my Zero Carb playlist!


Yesterday – Sunday 2/19 – Day 95

When I got up, I had my usual chug jug of hot water.

At 1:30pm, I had what you see on the plate above.  That consisted of 1 lb of ground beef made into two thick and juicy patties.  Then I cooked some sliced beef along with that.  I also added cut up bacon ends and some salami to the mix.  I did not use butter this time since the ground beef is fatty enough and the other stuff does not stick.  I ate almost everything in the plate.  I had a bit of ground beef left and a slice or two of beef.  Freaking fantastic meal!

At 8:00pm, I cooked more sliced beef along with more ground beef (time to stock up!!!) and I cut up more bacon ends (lately I like to cut into small pieces) and also some kielbasa sausage.  Then I cracked 6 eggs into that mix.  I ate a plateful and was quite a happy camper!

At 1:00am, I ate the rest of the same mix that I made for dinner (I cook big and save for later).  I reheated it this time (I often eat leftover cold) and it was super yummy.  Then I crossed over to the danger zone!  MILK!!!  One gulp. That’s all it took.  Read the note below.

NOTE:  I love water, and I’m totally satisfied with drinking only water, but I sure do love the taste of milk too.  I have been dairy free for several weeks now, and getting off dairy was the best thing I could do for my body.  ZC made me feel awesome, but ZC with no dairy has rocked my world!  Anyhoo, last night, around 2am, I took a gulp of milk.  I did not chug it down.  Just took ONE gulp of it.  Then I drank water because I was thirsty and I went to bed.  About an hour later, I woke up with the worst cramps.  You might think it’s because I ate a fatty meal at 1:00am, but I often do that and it has never made me sick.  So that food is not what caused it.  It had to be the milk!  I was crampy and nauseous and miserable!  Not fun!  I suffered the rest of the night and through the morning.  It just goes to show that once we are down to the basics, it’s easy to determine what the culprits are.  Dairy is not my friend.

Food that entered my mouth yesterday:  sliced beef, ground beef, bacon, salami, kielbasa, eggs, one nasty ass gulp of milk and lots of delicious water.

IMPORTANT – My doctor totally approves of this!!! See this vlog to see how my appointment went!

Monday Chat – Movies I Love, Random Facts, Upcycle Poll, eBay Auction

chat-monday

Happy Monday everyone!

I had a very interesting night.  And when I say interesting, I mean it was awful!!!  You can read the note here to learn why.

Now it’s almost noon and I feel much better.  It’s a brand new week.  I start my new schedule on Mondays and I love to see a blank page with no video ideas scratched off the list so I can pick whatever I want to do!

With that said, not sure what I feel like doing today.  I will probably start my new Upcycled Fashions video (the poll is still open if you want to vote!), but I’ve decided that since those videos are complicated, I will not be finishing them in one day.  I will work on it throughout the week and do the editing as I go so it’s not so much to do all at once.  But it will be uploaded as one video.

Yesterday, I uploaded my most recent Upcycled Fashions on eBay and I see I have two bids!  I start my bidding as low as possible since I just want the items to find a new home.  Check it out to see if this one is your size!

I also started a new series called Movies I Love and I talked a little bit about my Number 1 favorite movie of all time!  Then I did 5 More Random Facts about Maine.  It was super fun this time because I was answering trivia questions about Maine and I had no idea if I’d be right or not.  Check that video out too!

Have a great Monday!

Darlene
XOXO
