Last night, not wanting to dig too deep into my food, I ate two big scoops of my raspberry jam with a spoon before bed.
I had no choice. My stomach was going crazy. My dinner, pictured below, wasn’t enough. The Clam Chowder meal and crackers weren’t enough.
Tonight, I have a headache, and I’m feeling very tempted to go home and attack a portion of the food available so I can sleep well. Today, I was lacking for energy, and I know that tomorrow I’m going to have to get more creative with how I cook.
I had some instant oatmeal for breakfast with tea. Another tea with some olive-loaf bread and raspberry jam (not tasty) for lunch. And a mish-mash of various items by my wife into a tomato-rice stew. My late dinner was more of the rice-stuff without the soup. All pictured below.
Many of my customers at Phog Lounge are cooks, students, artists, and musicians. They all say that they’re used to eating little amounts, cooking creatively, stretching their meals out, and suppressing thier appetites. I’m struggling, and they’re trying to give me advice to have a better experience. I’ve taken mental notes on how to prepare the rest of my food…
I shot a quick video about what I ate today, and about some of the conversations I’ve had with my customers about this food challenge. I hope you’ll watch it to get an idea of what we’re going through with this challenge to try and understand what this experience is like (from a distance).
