I eat primarily brown rice, veggies, beans, occasional bits of chicken or fish. On Saturdays, I gobble some soft noodle chicken chow mien from the Chinese cafe down the street, mindful of every flavorful bite...can't get enough of the greasy funky stuff. :tongue:

In other words, my diet is Theravada inspired for 6 days of the week, and Vajrayana inspired on Saturday. :smile:

To make it a little more interesting I thought I'd include a picture as well. I love food, btw, and would always love to see pics of food. So put them up if you have anyway. (I'm obviously feeling hungry now).

Greetings zavk,

I'm tipping you'd like the Reece's Pieces thickshake at Misty's Diner in Prahran.

The best peanut butter in the universe - no sugar, just like when I was a kid.

Porridge for me, plain and thick maybe with some dry toast.

When I went to Edinburgh a couple of years ago I had to teach my friend Scott how to make porridge!

I love cold roast potatoes (especially the over-done ones) with a little knob of butter.

And I was born severely jaundiced. I wasthe most delightful sunflower-yellow, for about two weeks.....!
My liver's not what it should be, and coupled with a blood condition (thalassemia) means I have to pay attention to my proteins....
So as a kid, my mum used to mix a whole egg with breadcrumbs, a little salt and lemon juice, and serve it to me as a raw "patty".
I still love it now, although occasionally, I'll shallow-fry it for about 4 minutes either side, and eat it with a rocket salad, and a piece of fresh buffalo mozzarella....

I also love cheese strings, dipped until they melt, into veggie pot-noodles.

I am so disgusting, really.... :rolleye: :jumping:


I make my own peanut butter.
Organic salted peanuts and peanut oil is all you need.
And a good food processor......

Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. ;)

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

My undoing is chocolate, either dark or white.

I love cooking and dinners at home are usually asian, asian inspired or italian. I've got my mother-in-law as a jet-setting spice runner by bringing hard to find spices from the mainland to tasmania for me. Tasmanian customs regulations are the toughest in Australia,
I've now got a plasic tub filled with amchur, ajowan, star anise and szechuan pepper, and about a hundred others besides.
Kind regards

Cookies/biscuits are my weakness. It's hard to be mindful when they're around, especially ones with chocolate in them. Oh and a good cup of coffee, too.

After a period of indulgence in late teens I developed an allergy to dairy and a bunch of other things (some 13 years ago or so) and had to give up my favourite foods - cakes, junk food, all manner of creamy stuffs and all kinds of artificial chemical mutant products... :cry:

So I haven't had a coke or a BigMac since.

To be honest I no longer feel deprived.

But... a weakness for fish runs in the family (can't win against your genes you know...(not)) so even as we have basically given up meat, late at night once everyone's asleep and it's quiet (the only time it is), I started having a little snack as I attend to important matters such setting wayward Theravadins straight. :coffee:

Thankfully before the pounds really started showing a compassionate virus has cured me of this unfortunate habit and I am happy to report that I have not snacked for 4 days now. :twothumbsup:

<<wait a sec I've got to go and get something from the fridge.... :pig: >>
