...and so the week draws to a close. Delicious food has been devoured and there has been no deviation from the diet. Lessons have been learned with this experiment and here they are.
1: Food can look and taste good for a whole week after prep.
2: Bacon; however, tastes awesome up until day 4... then day 5 hits.
"Mmmm, Bacon!" I exclaimed as I chewed on the first piece on day five. The texture wasn't right though, it had taken on a grainy texture that scraped against the back of my tongue. I choked it down and resolved myself that it may have just been that one piece and took another into my gullet. I chewed contemplatively for a moment, pondering if I had made a mistake. Three more bites of the bacon-like substance and I decided that "Yep... five days is too long for bacon."
3: Cravings can be avoided
If you plan accordingly you can make it through a week without real cravings. I always felt satisfied by my foods this week since they were well balanced.
4: I need a bigger fridge...
5: A week is too much
Food can spoil easily or just change flavor. I usually stick to 3 day preps because of this. I don't like bad bacon.
