Every time I’m reading an ASOIAF book and they’re eating some sort of seafood stew and sopping it up with a dark bread, my mouth waters. I’ve been craving both chowder and pumpernickel rye since, like, Tuesday. Neither of these things is anywhere near being ok for slow carb, so I had to wait til cheat day.
