Silly Ideas

There are a lot of things going on at the moment which means that I don't have many interesting things to blog about other than hospital visits, colonic irrigation and so on. In fact, whilst syringing DKs ear this morning to get out the remains of an ear infection he seems to have had over the last week, the drain seems to have come out so that will mean yet another appointment with the ear doctor and probably another small operation to put a new one back in there.

I have been thinking about what I am eating again as I have slowly drifted back into more normal eating habits. That is not to say that I am eating badly again, but I have not been totally abstaining from cakes and sweet things. I have been eating very little of these sweet goodies and I intend to begin my abstinence again in the very near future - probably when MKs home make orange cake is all gone. Anyway, I digress. I have been considering trying out a few different diets to see how it is to try and survive with some strange and arbitrary eating rules. Maybe just for a day or maybe a week depending on the complexity of surviving without eating X, Y or Z.

Which should I try?

  • Firstly I thought I would try the new raw food thing and see if I could last a week eating only raw food. To be honest, I don't think I could last more than a day or so on this one, because I simply can't think of many things worth eating that don't require cooking of some sort.
  • Secondly I thought about being vegetarian for a week. I think I could manage this and it would probably do me some good.
  • Taking this to the next level would mean being vegan for a day or two. Again, I can't imagine surviving this for long simply because there is nothing to eat if you're a vegan. I simply don't know how you could survive and it is even harder to see why you would want to do it.
To be honest, I am curious about the raw food, but I know I can't live on raw food in Denmark for long without learning a lot more about preparing stuff because I will go totally mad. I think it may be something I could incorporate into my diet more in the future.
Being a vegan is just daft, but maybe not eating meat for a few days would be interesting. I will think about a plan and post it tomorrow...

J seems to have flu today and is firmly attached to the sofa. I hope he gets better quickly.

    Vegetarian is do-able. Pastas with cheese/vegs, soups and chilli's with vegs/beans, bean/ch/etc burritos, omelettes, rice dishes with vegs/ch, potatoe dishes with various toppings, salads with beans/cheese/nuts, egg/potatoe breakfast wrap, Indian curry with garbanzo bean protein, nut burger's ...

    Sounds like an F-plan diet!

    Don't be so daft.
    Raw = cold.
    This time of year you need something "warm inside you".

    You went veggie for about two weeks when you were 14 or so. It was hard going & I still remember the words when you returned to normal....

    Vegan is nuts!
    Porridge & veg

    Just eat what's put on your plate & miss out on the extras.m

    Vegetarian is an ancient Indian word for "bad hunter".
