Red Meat Diary

Warning:  If you are not a red meat fan, please stop reading.

Forgive me for being so inactive lately.  I haven't been much of an adventurer since I started this new journey which I still prefer to keep mum till something happens.

It has been 41 days since my last red meat gorging.  And I think, it has finally taking its toll on my well being. *sheepish grin*  and while I was scanning my phone for rubbish pics I found this!





Oh hello there my good friends...

Dear Oinky Bacon,

I miss your crispy personality.  I can't get enough of you.  I'd welcome you anytime of the day.  I miss the way your smell makes me dream of a sunny day while swinging under the shade.  I miss how your crunch marries the chargrilled taste of your good friend Beefy Patty.

Dear Beefy Patty,

As I've said, the experience is not perfect without you in the picture.  It is an empty gastronomical fulfillment.  It was like drinking coke zero or pepsi light without the zing.  Or eating low fat ice cream.  Subtitutes just don't make the cut.  It is not the real thing.

Good, good friends...when will our paths cross again?  

Until then, I will keep you on the pedestal of my wish-list.

This monstrous burger by the way, is from Davao.  Had the chance to sample it way back in March 2012.

  1. I sometimes indulge in burgers as I too am trying to eat healthily these days. It's a good thing that our cravings are easily satisfied with the famous burger outlets available in the market :)

  10. Not a red meat fan anymore, but I continued reading anyway hehehe. This year is my fruits and veggies year. I do eat meat for protein...but red meat is a rarity in my diet. I'm glad the craving for that is gone. Maybe that's why I continued reading to test myself lol!

  19. Both my parents are carnivorous so we had red meat ever single day. Hubby though was raised eating mostly veggies so that's what he wants our kids to get used to. I have to have my red meat atleast thrice a week though. Otherwise, I go into withdrawal and get really cranky. :))

  20. Meat for sanity! haha

    You need those proteins from meat. It is all about balance or veggies and meat. (I sound like I practice what I preach. I don't. Carnivore, here!)
