    You eat pretty healthy but I'd recommend more veg/whole grain. Try making like a wheatberry salad or maybe a quinoa rissotto. Maybe sautee some zucchinni and cherry tomatoes like Ramsay does. More color, more flavor and nutrients... I'd just try to add more colors to your diet in addition to the greens.

    That's a good point. I'm mainly protein based, but almost all of my veg come from broccoli or green beans. I put some color in salads with carrots, peppers, etc, but not really in my dishes at home. Good advice.

    Just finished eating scrambled eggs on herb-buttered toast topped with sautÃ[​IMG]ed shallots and shiitake mushrooms. Four eggs, whole milk, chives, grey sea salt. Simple and delicious, and a touch decadent. Sometimes breakfast for dinner is what hits the spot. Thank you, Mr. Ramsay.

    You salted only later, right?

    The Paul Bocuse shop?


    In Japan there are many branded Bocuse shops in department stores selling charcuterie, pastries, etc. The quality and prices are both high.

    I'm a fan of the white plate over the red/black for sure.

    ^^ racist

    Last night I had roast stuffed pork chops with a sort of chopped mushroom topping. I've totally fallen in love with brining chicken and pork, its a world of difference. Brown rice and some courgette / zuchinni

    Agreed! I have had a recent brining epiphany as well. Haven't tried pork yet...that is next!

    Dinner tonight was a creamy chicken stew with some brown rice.

    ^You'll love it w/ the pork.

    Tonight is a rib-I with marchand de vin sauce. Also a couscous salad. Couscous salad has toasted almonds, red pepper, green onion, and dried cranberries.

    The steak is mehhh. It was like... 3/4" thick so impossible not to overcook. The couscous salad is great though.

    Yes steak like that is kind of pointless. I mean when I was broke I'd just sear it and put it into a really really hot oven for 1 minute then reast for 5. It would come out pink and would be ok. I'd generally stew or stir fry shit liek that though.

    No sauce?

    WHERE ARE YOUR GREENS NOW!!!?!?!?!?!

    The sauce is there. Just lighting is all fucked up. Overcooked brown meat + deep red wine sauce makes it hard to see it, but it's got mushrooms and shallots too.
    No greens, bitch. Your advice was good though. This salad is tasty.

    Why don't you throw in some sweet potatoes? You deserve some good carbs.

    I thought about having some smashed sweet potatoes underneath the couscous, but I don't go through sweet potatoes enough to bother keeping them on hand. My little grocery store didn't have them, and I didn't feel like taking a full on grocery run. They keep so well, I should probably pick up a small bag next time I go to WF anyway.

    No kidney's? I guess you are french... [​IMG]

    Actually, the reason why it wasn't steak and kidney pie is because I happen to have an American husband who's not too keen on offals, so I don't want to impose it on him. otherwise, I'd be making kidneys more often.
