In that case, eat two.  With bacon. 

Edited to add an ingredient.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Maybe this would go quicker if you just told us who hasn't apostatised?

No, I didn't forget it.  Such things are forbidden.  While in Acts 10.9-16, God declared to St Peter that we need not obey the kosher laws regarding meat, in Acts 15.22-29, the apostles, with the Holy Spirit, declared that the Gentiles were to abstain from eating blood.  

WHO'S THE TRUE ORTHODOX NOW?!?!  :P

When I was in seminary, I skipped Liturgy at my church and went to the chapel instead (that day I needed a Liturgy that'd get me out earlier than 2pm).  Afterwards, I went to a diner and ate my first full English breakfast, including black pudding.  What a lovely meal that was!  And then I read Acts 15.  :(

Incognito, I am glad that you are still with us and still have time for repentance. The last video you posted had me wondering.

This isn't really related to the video, but I will be more interested in a greater form of apostasy in the future.
