Test driving

I took the afternoon off today to go with my brother to look at a car he is interested buying. A pretty cool Subaru BRZ.

After the test drive we had some coffee and he had a biscuit, so not very LCHF. I hade a plain and simple double espresso.

Today I made my standard easy garlic butter.

  • 100g butter
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt & pepper

To the butter I fried 2 pork chops.

New tools

I have been getting more and more interested in making some movies so I went online and bought an iPhone grip and stand.

Now I only have to figure out what to film. Some more cooking but maybe also some kind of videpodcast… Not really sure. What would you like to see?

 

Dinner tonight was tow big pieces of pork chops with a lot of butter seasoned with herbs.

Hmmm, cheese…

So after a little cheese during the weekend “someone” put a pice of nice swiss cheese in my bag at the store today… Yes… I am “back” on the cheese… But only today… I promise…

For dinner I fried a couple of pork chops and made a hot chili-butter as side.

During the camp I got a question aboyt my chili-butter and what chili-oil I sometimes say I use. Today I took a picture of the bottle. I do not know wher to get it outside Sweden but I bought my bottle in a chain called ICA.

I also almost finished the “Pegasus Bridge” I am building for some historical gaming. In the picture it is the 82:nd airborne running over the bridge but this is off course not really accurate…

Tommy on stage

Pictures of me during my presentation at the LCHF-camp are pouring in… For once I actually din something else than just speak. I showed everyone the only pair of trousers I have since my heavier times…Thanks ÅSe for tesse pictures…

14 0720-TommyTappar -20140720-00002bild 2

And then I tried to get into just one of the legs…

14 0720-TommyTappar -20140720-00003bild 4

Ta da!

I am still a bit “touched” when I bring these trousers out of the closet… Not sure if I am gonna like seeing this on video later…

I also got a “behind the scenes” footage from when I am taking pictures for the blog… :-)

My weight has been a bit high lately so now I need to shape up… Or starting on Monday (again)..

Skärmavbild 2014-07-20 kl. 17.53.43

Today I had sausages and cole slaw for dinner. The cole slaw was really simple. Only 150g of mayo, 1 teaspoon dijon, 75g cabbage. Salt and pepper… Perfect for some sausages with garlic and herbs in them.

14 0720-TommyTappar -20140720-00004IMG_8284

I got a really high fat ratio thanks to all that mayo.

Last day at camp

Today it was the last day at the LCHF-camp for me. I was to have my presentation as the last speaker in the afternoon and I got up a bit early and started wit a small brakfast…

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00002IMG_8245

…before making the the last changes in my presentation.

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00004IMG_8247

First presenter today was Margareta and she was really good and we do think alike in 99,9% of all thinngs LCHF (and maybe other things as well). Our presentations was quite similar in “general” content but totally different stories…

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00010IMG_8253

After Margareta Frank Nilsson entered the stage. This was the first time I have seen him but I have read his book (called “Instead of doping”) an that one is really interesting. His presentation was about training on LCHF and gave a good insight in coaching athletes.

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00013IMG_8256

After lunch it was time of Björn Hammarskjöld who is a retired MD and researcher. He spoke about everything from food for new borns, salt, hormones and alice in wonderland… :-)

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00021IMG_8264

Finally it was time for my presentation. I have no pictures from the presentation since I was a bot occupied… I do have one of the “setup”. I was rigged with a lot of microphones and “DietDoc” (Andreas) had three or four cameras running so hopefully at least one of them caught my presentation…

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00029IMG_8272

I flet really comfortable during the whole presentation and I do think it went pretty well. I did try a couple of new thing and one was to get in my old trousers från 2008. I managed to fit in one of the legs… And I also managed to stay standing… Hopefully I will get pictures of this soon…

 

On my way home I stopped at my parents house asnd got some food. Shirmps for starter.

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00031IMG_8274

Goat leg with goat cheese butter for main (with a salad).

14 0719-TommyTappar -20140719-00033IMG_8276

And cheese for desert.

20140718-0074--38

Nice mess

Today I made a fat and nice “mess” out of:

  • 300g minced meat
  • 140g bacon
  • 30g chopped onion
  • 1 chopped small green chili
  • garlic
  • 150g Mayo
  • salt & pepper

14 0716-TommyTappar -20140716-00004IMG_8125

I fried meat, bacon, onion, garlic and chili in butter. The I mixed it with the mayo.

The fat ratio for this dish is really high.

Well prepared for the camp

Today I have made sure I have “everything” for the LCHF-camp this weekend.

I bought a new remote for the computer to handle my presentation and I also got a new camping chair for the barbecue in the evenings.

14 0715-TommyTappar -20140715-00015IMG_8116

I also prepared the food for both nights. I have come to realize it is most convenient to actually pre cook the food and only use the fire for heating it up again… So chicken it is…

14 0715-TommyTappar -20140715-00012IMG_8113

I was going gaming tonight so before I left home I fried some more chicken and had a feta cheese butter thst was really nice.

  • 100g butter
  • 150g feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon basil

Speaking on Saturday

The coming weekend there is a big LCHF gathering in a small town called Säffle. Its a camp with two full days of lectures and one of the speakers had to cancel so I get to speak on saturday as last speaker… I have done my thing there three years before so I need to find some new things to say. I might focus on the “mental” part of loosing weight since the speaker I am replacing was going to speak about motivation and mental tools…

The weight is going in the right direction again. Hopefully I will keep it up so I can plan out down at 82-83 where I belong…

Skärmavbild 2014-07-14 kl. 21.31.02

Today I had the rest of the ole slaw I made yesterday. This time with a nice chili butter and burgers.
