It is still snowing, through the night and into this morning and now...so, add about three more inches to these photos taken at seven in the morning.
The crows are cranky.
I have been reading A book about the life /times/ and art of Egon Shiele it is keeping me well entertained --I am NOT out playing in the snow, not yet anyway...must find mittens...anyway, this book is remarkable, though the writer has too many opinions and judgments that get in the way.
The title says everything about the writer as he names Egon "The Egoist" and turns Egon's work in on itself, never mind, if you can forgive the writer there is a wealth of information in this little book, loads of side notes and art! Plus there is the fact that this writer is not alone in his condemnation of Shiele's character of narcissist.
Other than that I am eating the flax seed bread I made yesterday and getting fluffier by the second- not much else in the house besides Mr. Man's keto food.
Heavy cream, cheese, pork fat, butter, you know, KETO extreme! Not a single carbohydrate is ingested.
It is working wonders for him, truly! His diabetes / blood sugar is in check, no more neuropathy that was contributing to a difficult bowel situation- It has been remarkable! So, OK, whatever it takes- I am on board- ( good thing I can make bread as I am addicted)
Now they have found the research that the sugar industry hid since the late sixties- paid lobby and reporters to go after FATS, making them out to be the villains of heart disease and cancer when all along it has been sugar! Studies prove that sugar not only feeds cancer but creates it, Sugar is a heart attack, diabetes ( goes without saying),cancer, contributing to just about every disease , organ damage, hardening of arteries , bad skin, lack of brain power, Which may explain the dumbing down of America somewhat...No exaggeration. Science, There are many google-able links to it now.
Of course carbohydrates are sugar, fruit is sugar, everything delicious is likely to be sugar but there is way too much of it- in everything, Addictive to be sure, because we are human- mother's milk is sweet but it is also loaded with globs of fat and other nutrients of course- Fat can balance the effect of carbs, butter on bread, cheese on pasta, Clotted cream on scones, that sort of thing.
So, Mr. Man is on the right track- and I would not have believed it had I not been here to witness! Kudos to Keto!
