The stay at home order is in effect and that’s what I’ve been doing. I stay at home – and EAT. I didn’t fast at all this week.
On Sunday, I drank some pickle juice (for the probiotic benefit) that had been in the refrigerator, I guess for some time. It may have been moldy, even though I didn’t see any mold. But my stomach didn’t care for it, so I went back to having a little white rice the next day.
I didn’t really feel like cooking this week. Thankfully, I always cook and freeze a lot, so I had a freezer full of dishes to choose from. I made an egg roll in a bowl recipe that is low carb but not really low enough to be considered keto, in my opinion.
Since the stay at home order began, I really didn’t have a sense of what it was like out in my city. I live on a one-way street, which is pretty quiet anyway. I drove downtown on Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to know if people were out and about or if it looked like a ghost town. The parade, of course, had been cancelled the week before.
I went downtown around lunchtime. Many restaurants were open for carryout only and, basically, I just saw a handful of workers going in to pick up food. Then I drove to a couple of grocery stores just to see if the parking lots were full. I never got out of the car.
I’m still eating a lot of the 2-ingredient flourless cake I made last week. Slathered with whipped cream – that’s good stuff!
