    Your shopping list...

    So, here's a thread to post what you bought lately/today.
    It's to give people a glimpse into your diet without making a daily log of food, show where you shop and how much you spend on life, as well as illustrate what you consider a reasonable 'cheat' if you cheat.

    You only really have to say what you bought, but adding weight/quantity of items, cost, where you got them and what you plan on doing with them would be sweet.

    I shop predominantly for one, although my Dad partakes in some of my food and buys stuff for both of us (will mention when I didn't get it or it's shared) and my fiance eats it when he's around. I'm currently aiming to hit 3500kcal/day, primarily from fats and carbs, with at least 110g of protein. Autumn bulks ought to be easier than Summer ones.

    Today:
    A Czech barbecue sausage (100% free-range pork and seasonings) with sauerkraut, pickled gherkins, onion and sour cream. 3.50; from the local Czech market stall. Dad got it for me as a treat for the day. Otherwise probably would have waited until home and had chicken, due to cost.
    2 HUGE avocados. 1 each; from the grocer. Ate one with my sausage. The other is being saved for later.
    2 ox hearts (5.4kg-ish). 7. One is currently stewing with potatoes and onions. The other was cut into 9 parts and frozen in sandwich-bags. Will probably stir-fry it or stew it, when I use it.
    11 pigs' hearts (3.5kg). 5. Bagged them individually and froze them. Will probably stew or stir-fry.
    All hearts from butcher at the market.

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
