for about 2 years i was vlc and avoided starchy foods like they were kryptonite. i don't care at all for sweet potatoes, but now do eat white potatoes sometimes and rice with sushi.
spuds i like to cook in bacon grease or duck fat.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
