    All of this food talk is kind of difficult for me as I am on day two of a three day fast. I decided to join Nady and the others on the fasting thread and give it a try. I've done 48 hours before with relative ease but this time I'm going for 72 just to see.

    So, no food porn pic for you guys until later this week.

    So 48 hours of the 72 hour fast completed and I feel pretty good. I got stuff done today without feeling weak or anything. (I had a new set of deck chairs and a table delivered and today I finally dragged them up to the deck up a flight of stairs.

    Dad had a podiatry appointment today. It seems to be standard procedure for anyone with diabetes to get a referral to podiatry. But the doctor today basically gave him a tube of Lotrimin for athletes foot and a jar of skin lotion for dryness. And they want Dad to get fitted for these special diabetic shoes that cradle your tootsies in padded comfort. Dad isn't having any of that. I can see if someone had really advanced neuropathy so bad that they could hurt their feet and not feel it, those shoes could be helpful. Also Dad has calluses on his feet that the doctor tried to remove and Dad told him to stop. He has calluses because he walks and works in the garden. Calluses serve a protective function. Not everybody needs to have baby soft feet.

    It sounds like your dad knows what he is doing. I'm glad the two of you are getting to spend so much time together. 72 hour fast? Damn, I am impressed.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Your dad sounds pretty on to it.

    Yep, Dad is not one to just meekly do something because a person in a whiter coat says so. In addition to having been the world's greatest Dad (IMUO the U for Unbiased), he is also a really good friend. He helped me with my "some assembly required" patio furniture today making sure I got the washer on under the nut.

    I picture the elders of a Grokian tribe spending more time around the cave instead of out on the hunt but still making themselves useful by sharpening spears or dressing hides. At 86, Dad is far from being helpless or useless.

    I'm so pleased that we are getting him off some of his meds. I have noticed a significant uptick in mental alertness and memory retention since we got him off the BP pills. The listed side effects always start out with "Dizziness, drowsiness.....". I wonder how many elderly people are walking around in a pharmaceutically induced brain fog.

    Um, because clafoutis is a traditional French dessert (de Limoge, je pense) usually made with cherries, which is damn good, believe me. Though I think it's even better with something more tart, like raspberries. Start mucking around with bacon, cheese and onions and you've got yourself a ... quiche! LOL

    But yes, I too prefer savoury over sweet most of the time.

    Isn't that the truth. Physicians should be made to read the product disclosure aloud each time they prescribe
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Are you still medicated at all after your heart troubles or have you been able to kick the pills?

    Oooh. My neighbors keep giving us blackberries since they have more than they can eat right now. I bet that would make a good clafoutis.

    Clafoutis is amazing. I've only ever made it with cherry but it's like a sinister pancake. So good.

    I've heard of primal/paleo versions, but I'm afraid to try. The one I made in my pre-primaleo days is just so tasty.
