This is part 3 of 3. Yes, the porridge experiment is (mostly) over. I did the rice thing for a few more days and then decided to “hipsterise” my breakfast. Even though I dislike chia seeds (’cause they always get caught between my teeth), I decided to swap the rice for soaked chia seeds. When I ran out of black sesame seeds I started using tahini (I have since learned black tahini exists, so will be buying that one in the future). The (activated) walnuts and goji berries stayed, and in the beginning I added a tablespoon of coconut milk, too. I’m still having two boiled eggs on the side for protein. So, basically I’m eating a ton, at least a ton more to what I used to eat before for breakfast.
The hipster, low carb version of black sesame porridge. Black sesames, walnuts and gojis are still in, plus almond flour, coconut flour, water, homemade coconut kefir, coconut flakes and cinnamon. Plus the mandatory protein: 2 boiled eggs. #blacksesame #gojiberries #breakfast #eggs #eattheyolks #paleo #primal #glutenfree #grainfree #realfood #jerf
Hipster porridge v2: chia seeds soaked in water, coconut milk, tahini, cinnamon, walnuts, goji berries. This is regular tahini but now I know that black tahini exists, so I'll be buying that one next time. Plus 2 boiled eggs for #protein. #breakfast #porridge #paleo #primal #glutenfree #grainfree #realfood #jerf
I have roughly the same thing most mornings. Other days I do anything from a protein green smoothie to bacon and eggs to fresh oysters from the market.
The treatment is working, but I don’t think there’s any magic to the breakfast the Chinese doctor recommended, but rather to having a solid breakfast every morning. Plus, of course, the herbs. I guess this means intermittent fasting is not good for me at this stage.
