Well, that didn’t go as I planned. Here are my tweets from The Day Of The Leek:
Jan 29, 10:36pm – The next 2 days should be pretty interesting… #LeekFast2013
Jan 30, 9:36am – Breakfast: boiled leeks with a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper.
11:04am – Midmorning snack: Leek broth.
11:05am – The leek broth isn’t as good as the leeks themselves.
11:29am – Tried adding a little salt to the leek broth. Still tastes like leeks.
12:25pm – Hungry. Getting tired of leeks already.
12:39pm – (from @Jedisaber) haha, how long are you gonna eat them for?
@Jedisaber Supposed to be for 2 days. We’ll see if I last that long!
@kiwifr00t Mam hlad.
12:34pm – (from @kiwifr00t) Hlad jako vlk, now that you mention it…
@kiwifr00t Jako vlk??!!
12:49pm – (from @kiwifr00t) Jako. Vlk.
@kiwifr00t Why did I think this was a good idea?? #LeekFast2013
2:06pm – Calorie Counting App: OMG UR STARVING URSELF!! Me: Shut up I know!! CCA: WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?? Me: I’m an idiot shut up already!!
3:40pm – Feeling weird. The leek experiment is dangerously close to being cancelled.
3:50pm – Probably will never have leeks again in my life.
3:55pm – (from @CloneBot) That good huh?
@CloneBot MUCH WORSE.
4:09pm – Officially done with this leek experiment. Am eating almonds.
4:29pm – (from @kiwifr00t) Yeah, I’ll readily admit it was not my best laid plan.
4:31pm – @kiwifr00t At least I got some good blog material out of this!
So, that was an interesting experiment. I’m not sure if it would be less like fasting if I actually liked leeks. What was weird was that I just became more and more preoccupied with how hungry I was throughout the day. Not really surprising, I guess. I’m used to eating whenever I want.
Well, I don’t plan on doing that ever again. Here are some pictures from the cooking:
