I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!

My experiements have shown that having pink piggy slippers helps with fasting. They are so cute, I’m more likely to put my feet up to see them and and actually get some rest! . Fasting isn’t as exciting as glorious food, but an important part of an ancestral kitchen. Our ancestors would have lived in a feast or famine way a lot of the time. I’m doing it 2 afternoons/evenings a week at the moment – going from lunch till late breakfast the next day without solid food. . Psychologically and physically it helps me reboot. AND it means I can eat with a little more abandon the rest of the time. I like that! . The hardest thing is resting whilst doing it. I want to support my body the best I can, but it’s hard to stop. Enter the slippers :-)

Chicken stock. Today I am coming to the end of a fast. I love food and am a grumpy faster. But I appreciate what it brings me and very much believe it has an important place in the routine of our days and weeks. . Eating is not just about fuel. And fasting brings with it much mental and emotional challenge. To not base my life around food. To see how much I do use it as an escape, despite years of self-work. To rest, truly rest – man, how hard is that? . We fast as a family, together makes so much difference. Up till recently, it’s been ad-hoc, whenever a health challenge presented itself. But more and more we plan to work it into our weekly routine. The grumpy me doesn’t like that. but all the other parts of me think it’s a brilliant step.
