People who are new to Fasting often pose the questions: “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.
Lime-marinated chicken came to us from our younger son and his friend Angela, both of whom are very handy in the kitchen. The marinade is simplicity itself, but the meat must sit in it for 4+ hours — so plan ahead. What seems to be a puny amount of marinade grows into a lot more as time goes on. Use it for basting. The chicken can be grilled or baked. note: I skinned half of the chicken to account for varying tastes. Fine either way.
Served with sliced tomatoes and potato salad, this is one of those prefect Summer meals.
PS: We always use this for chicken, but our son says it is fabulous with pork, too.
