My Swedish lecture on video

Today I got to see the lecture I had in Säffle last weekend. I helped doing the index and to be honest I was more nervous to see my self on video than I was when I stood there on the stage…

I am not sure when DietDoctor will publish this on his Swedish site and I do not know if it will be subtitled…

For dinner today I made a variation of the “salad” I made a couple of days ago. I got a tips on my Swedish blog so I tried it..

  • 300g minced meat
  • 40g chopped leek
  • 100g diced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon

I fried the meat, leek and mushrooms in a pan and added the soy sauce and the bourbon. When done I let it cool down a bit and mixed it with 100g of may. Really nice with the mushrooms that gave the dish a more “rustic” taste.

Before I went to the gaming session I made a little experimental cooking. It is a variation of something I tried a couple of months ago. A kind of “salad”.

  • 100g may
  • 300g fried minced meat
  • 150g diced ham
  • 150g olives
  • taco seasoning

I fried the meat and seasoned with taco seasoning. after letting it cool down a bit I mixed it with roughly chopped olives.

Today I walked out to a friend who are thinking of starting up a café and we discussed the possibility to use LCHF and low carb in general as a “niche”. There is also a spare room in the café where I might be able to host lectures etc. Really interesting.

We tried a nice “frappe”

I got some home grown broccoli from my friend and I ate it with some burgers and a nice butter I also got from her. I can not really pick out all seasoning but garlic, leek, pepper and possibly bacon too. Really nice!

Afternoon salty snacks

After a full day of gaming and “hobbying” at the store I came home to a really warm apartment and at the store I drunk a lot of water and coffee. I was “craving” something salt and ate some cheese and smoked ham… And drunk some more water. Today I must have drunk at least 4-5 liters of water in total… Kind of a record for me…

For dinner I mede the goat cheese butter again and I actually recorded the making and hopefully I can publish a short movie tomorrow. I have to train myself a bit in Adobe Premiere first…

14 0726-TommyTappar -20140726-00002IMG_8353

To the butter once again I fried a couple of pork chops. In a comment I got the question on how I cook the chops so I can copy that answer here too

High temperature pan, 3/3, with butter and as soon as the butter is quiet I put the chops in the pan and lower the temp to 2/3. After 3-4 minutes I turn the chops to the other side and lower the temp to 1,5/3 and put a lid on and let simmer for another 2-3 minutes. The I turn the stove of and let the chops rest in the pan another 2-3 minutes. Normally the chops are slightly pinkish. Not even close to rare, but not dry and chewy… I will try to make a movie now when I have started recording some stuff. I will also take a picture of the color of the chop when I think they are perfect.

I know people are afraid of “rare” pork but I would rather eat i slightly undercooked than overcooked… But thats me… Living on the edge… :-)

A lot of water

It is really warm in Sweden right now. around 30 degrees celsius and I am drinking a lot of water so I do feel a bit “big”… And the weight is reflected by this so even if I have been eating quite ok the weight is still a bit high…

Today I once again made my favorite butter with goat cheese

  • 100g butter
  • 100g goat cheese

Yes, it is that simple… Next time I’ll make a movie to prove it…

To the butter I fried two pork chops.

14 0725-TommyTappar -20140725-00011IMG_8337

Infront of a reasonably good movie (Snitch) I had 150g of gouda cheese.

Small salad for lunch

Today I had a late lunch meeting regarding our gaming store and other things game related so I left my paid work a little bit early… It might be an interesting fall…

I had a nice small halloumi salad with Tzaziki.

14 0724-TommyTappar -20140724-00002IMG_8322

For a late dinner I fried two pork chops and made a butter of

  • 75g butter
  • 1 teaspoon dijon
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon
  • salt and pepper

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.

Skärmavbild 2014-07-23 kl. 21.17.16

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.

14 0722-TommyTappar -20140722-00011IMG_8313

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.

14 0721-TommyTappar -20140721-00010IMG_8297

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.

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