I also tend to have the same things over and over on my Down Days. One, it makes for less counting: count once instead of refiguring every day. Two, it takes some of the thought out of it, and I don't want to become obsessive about how 'much' food I can finagle out of 420K. I just want to get the food and eat it, no muss, no fuss.
I HAVE tweaked my Down Days a little, though, most recently trying a Fat-Fast Down Day (which I liked very much) and a Protein-centered Down Day(which was delicious but not as filling). However, yesterday when I did a second Fat-Fast Down Day, I just used some of the same choices. I didn't go looking for variety.
Sabine what kind of Liverwurst do you buy? I like boars head brand. But I don't have a scale at home and now wondering how I can measure small amount?
I just buy our grocery's store brand, Jones Dairy Farm Braunschweiger. It is NOT primal (nitrites, etc) but for LIVERWURST, I am willing to make an exception. It comes sliced, from a 3" diameter link, sliced about 1/4" thin. One slice, at about .80z, is 60 calories, 45 from fat, 13 from fat, 2 from carb.
If you have your deli measure/look at the label to see how many ounces your big piece is, and just divide it into 1oz portions, you would have about 75 calories.

I will try this. I'm afraid I would not able stop eating just 1 oz. Tomorrow I'm going to German market to get some good meats and headcheese.

I've made MDA chicken liver pate twice and it's delicious, keeps for about a week.
I buy liverwurst from Wellness Beef that's from grass-fed, grass-finished animals--and is the best liverwurst I've ever eaten. I great way to get in organ meats, IMO.

Of course! It's just often the most balanced meal that I can get for the calories. Like I said, it's not the most bang for your calorie bucks (straight veggies), but it is somewhat filling and has a good mix of protein, carbs, and veggies. I've eaten an entire 12oz bag of salad on my down days before. It's a filling meal, but it leaves me feeling a little empty.
Blah woke up feeling awful this morning , tmi but thought I was gonna die on the toilet! Blah! DD for me, and I've got a very messy house so I hope cleaning it will keep me busy till I can eat at 5:30. Hope everyone has a successful day!
Just got back from my 2 mile walk and it's sooo nice outside-finally some good weather! Another ud over here and not feeling hungry at all so no food so far. Contemplating moving tomorrow's scheduled dd to today because it would probably be an easy one. We'll see how it goes!
