People who are new to Fasting often pose the question: “Can I really eat ‘anything I want’ on a Slow Day?” and “What should I eat on Slow Days?” To answer those questions, I have decided to add some blog posts to show some of the foods we eat on what the world calls NFDs [non-fast days] but which, in our house, we call ‘Slow Days.’ This feature will appear sporadically. Now for the answers. Can you really eat ANYTHING you want on a Slow Day? Not really. If you eat too many calories every Slow Day, you will not lose weight. There are many questions asked on the FastDiet Forum which tell the tale. But once in a while your can splurge, as long as it isn’t every day. For what to eat on Slow Days, Dr. Mosley recommends a Mediterranean Diet. As for how we eat, an example follows.
We had arrived back home after a few days away, and needed a quick meal. A trip to the local fish market gave us the idea of stuffed haddock, always a favorite. There were odds and ends of items in the ‘fridge: some snap beans, a little lettuce, some pickled vegetables [see SPICY, posted 12 Sept, 2018], and some leftover artisan bread. Herbs from the garden and a nice Rossignol Estate Winery ‘L’Acadie Blanc‘ rounded out the meal.
Here’s the mise en place:
Here is the plated meal:
Happy Slow Day.
