Yes - tried doing steak ages ago .. long time back bought the grill for that purpose as trying protein based Atkins Diet then. ..
I will be busy cooking the veg filling tonight for Spring Rolls (Not LCHF I know...) Yes I like to do some cooking in the cool of the night (jobless=incomeless as belong to the Wrong Over40AgeGroup Retrenched PME)
already cut onions, carrots, cabbage etc ....before dinner in late afternoon
Mom didn't get me the turnip nor mushrooms from the market so will do without ....
Will hv to buy mango n prawn for another type Spring Roll or Wrap
Didn't like the Viet Rice Paper Rolls tonight as TOO sticky to the fingers ....
So many recipes to try out .

Are you trying a LCHF diet without any meat?

Btw, you are dedicated. Unless i had guests, I would never go to so much trouble for just some rolls. Just eat my veg raw, stirfry quickly or pop into oven. Dips are yoghurt favoured with mint/lemonjuice, a good balsamic vinegar or just soya sauce with cut chillies.

Yes I used to stay away from crab sticks too like the plague until my friend's suggestion with mango spring rolls n until I used up the balance flavoured fried chewy crabstick mom had bought n was thinking of throwing away in my pre-CNY Crab Cream Cheese Korokke or Jap potato croquettes done with veg + with veg/corned beef too .... the corned beef used in my Columbian Beef Empanadas too (see Baking Thread) baked in cheapo halogen oven

????? Huh ??

Feel I hv reached my ripe old age to explore other "interests" n to allow my "mind" to rest n be free from being judged etc ...
The process of "creating" n exploring new recipes is my current "healthy hobby" too


Spring Roll filling all cooked for tomorrow"s tea
Also the prepared partial ingredients to be used for intended Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels or modified Cream Cheese Ranch Roll Ups - with puff pastry sheet + Ranch Dressing + Bacon + Cheddar...

Nope I DO have meat in my LCHF - love my Big English Breakfast dinners with bacon n chicken or fish curries with sweet potato n lots of brinjals okra

See also the Pate de Campagne or Country Pate (terrine) with bacon pork belly chicken liver brandy lots of herbs spices...currently my MOST "complicated n longest-time-taking recipe" attempted so far - actually the steps are pretty simple here just waiting time ...



Hard time finishing that pate by myself over several meals (with Venezuelan arepas flatbread from P.A.N. cornmeal flour - stuffed with avocado too) as mom only took 1 slice (n warmed up too as no cold food for her)

I hv all the time in the world now to "cook" when I want to since jobless n sleep late (after 2am) n if I want something more LCHF etc besides mom's usual Chinese items ...most of the time I skip the brown rice at dinner too ... only recently managed to convince mom to switch to using Coconut Oil instead of Canola Oil after the last of that is used up soon ...

Guess I enjoy the process itself now ....

*** See Food Wishes' video on making Pate de Campagne

Yes of course - usually 3 for $4 plus
NTUC cheaper than CS which charges >>$2 for 1 !
The GIANT offers sometimes CMI as really cui

Well how I wish
But the reality is not so - as no job = no $$ ...Sighsss
But because of going LCHF need to research on Low Carb food n started exploring Recipes n Videos including the NON LCHF ones too
Yes did spend quite a bomb on spices etc alone (never got the pricey onion powder too) - my crazy Xmas Baking Urge saw me buying LOTS of different ingredients (some not used/hardly used with leftovers) ,-caused me to go off my LCHF too n that probably started just because I thought of using up some brandy we had on fruit cakes
Hmmmm LOTS more other stuff now to replace that bottle of brandy sighsssss

For LCHF on budget - eggs would be your best friend - egg yolks for choline (besides from chicken liver organ meats) to prevent fatty liver together with LOTS of green leafy veg (mom is now cutting down even on veg such as good bitter gourd as "too cooling" for her rheumatism as she remains unconvinced that apple cider vinegar/CCO/turmeric/etc will be good for inflammation - so as a result I suffer too ....)

To be HF - hard to take enough Bacon or Oils etc so simplest is Avocado besides Nuts ... so too I enjoy my curries with the CCO... doc says to eat chicken WITH the skin n butter n collagen-laden food like chicken feet n soups with lots of bones/ribs....to undo the harm brought on by the Cholsterol Myth ! To bake only at most once per week as too much processed stuff n sugars with most baking ....

I am lucky that my HbAc glucose level still within permitted range despite the Xmas Baking - probably due to the fact that I am doing natural Intermittent Fasting IF as I hv been skipping breakfasts for the last few years as jobless since retrenchment n wake up late some days as sleeping late after 2-3am (tho' late sleep interferes with good weight loss while LCHF as per Eric Berg : cortisol) - IF endorsed by Dr Jason Fung for health !
