This can mean that they're actually less healthy than their 'high fat' counterparts. Always read the nutrional information if you're looking to improve your diet so that you can make an informed decision.
My family has a restaurant on a Greek island. We receive dozens of messages like these every year:
"I'm an influencer, can I come and eat in exchange for posting a photo of your restaurant on instagram?"
For the last 3 years I have been responding with the following:
“thank you very much, however our restaurant has a policy. We charge every influencer who wants to eat here normally, however we offer food of equal value to people in need instead."
NO ONE has ever accepted to come under this condition. That is, to pay for his food even if I will then offer free food of the same value to people in need. Most of they time they don't even reply and some even delete their original message.
Dear influencers: You are just making a... keep reading on reddit ➡
As a second gen Chinese American myself, I am really tired of people being a complete snob over authenticity to the point that they distort the history and culture behind Chinese cuisine.
I've had enough of people trashing American Chinese food as "not the real thing" or even worse, "Chinese food dumbed down for American people" (like WTF?!)
While I don't deny that Chinese food in America is different from Chinese food on the mainland, that doesn't make it any less worthy. Sure, it has been changed to some extent to suit local palates, but that's pretty much the same thing with Chinese food in the diaspora in general. There is also Indonesian Chinese, Filipino Chinese, Singaporean Chinese, and even Peruvian Chinese food-yet nobody calls these variants as "fake" or "inauthentic".
Moreover, people had to make adaptations to the cuisine anyways in the new land due to the lack of available ingredients that they usually had back home. No Chinese broccoli? Use western broccoli instead... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened several years ago when I first moved to Japan. My Japanese skills were terrible, so I used google translate a lot while shopping. Anyway, I was looking for a quick snack and I saw a small bag that looked like rice crackers. It had a picture of cheese and fish on it so I thought it was just a unique Japanese flavor. I used picture translate and it said something like “A healthy cheese”. Nothing about a cat at all(well nothing that translated that is). So I bought it and loved it! I went back a few days later and bought two more packs; I ate one or two packs a week. Then one day my Japanese friend came over to watch a movie and I offered her a snack. She looked at the package and said “Do you have a cat?” I said I didn’t. She began to explain that my favorite snack was meant for cats. I was surprised, I told her that they were so delicious. She began laughing so hard, but she tried them and agreed that they tasted pretty good but told me I could get sick if I kept ea... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sadly, this has always been a fear of mine. Whenever men fiddle around in their pockets, I always get this flash of paranoia that they're secretly jerking off to the fact that we're unaware. Today it actually happened.
I work at a rather popular coffee chain, and our particular location is incredibly busy, fast paced, and stressful. Customers haven't exactly been the nicest during the pandemic, and I have to put up with a lot of verbal harassment, and I've had people actually threaten to come inside to throw some hands, but this really takes the cake.
I'm a supervisor and took over at the window for my co-worker's break. Two customers into this line, this guy pulls up to collect his order. I kindly greet him, look at his face, repeat his order and hand him his stuff. I noticed he was having a rather hard time focusing on putting his damn card in the stupid chip reader. I was focused on him paying for his shit, so my eyes were on his card, waiting for the "approved" text to flash acro... keep reading on reddit ➡
EDIT: The items that seem to be mentioned most so far are pasta, pizza crust, salsa, tomato sauces, tortillas, bread, stock, mayo, and hummus. And everyone’s saying I should have spatchcooked the chicken, so I’ll definitely try that next time!
To the insane amount of people who’ve just commented “everything”, I asked for unexpected things that lots of casual cooks just don’t think to/bother making from scratch... like pickles, mayonnaise, sauerkraut, pasta, that sort of stuff. Most things you’d expect to be better homemade, but what’re the unexpected things most people usually buy pre-made that are worth the extra effort? After making things like tomato paste, I really don’t believe everything is worth making from scratch lol.
No throwaway because I am too mad to make a new account for this.
My sister became vegan at around age 13 and has made it her entire lifestyle. At first, me and my parents thought it was good that she wanted to help animals get better treatment, but in the past few months, she has gotten a lot more radical. She recently went through the pantry and fridge and threw out all the meat products. She went on a loud rant inside a McDonald's about how evil McDonald's is. She berated my Dad for bringing home a steak to cook for himself until he threw it in the garbage. My mom still wants to support her, but I can see she is getting tired of dealing with my sister.
Now on to the actual event.
I was coming home and I decided to pick up some Burger King on the way back. I ordered about $25 worth of food for me and my Dad, and I used my own money from working around the neighborhood. I return home and (stupidly) put it in the fridge because my Dad hadn't gotten home yet. My sister comes into the... keep reading on reddit ➡
You never know what someone else is financial position is and even if it's in a business meeting, it shows discernment and discretion. For better or worse, people will judge you on how you handle this simple decision.
You could tell me excitedly that it’s 73F outside and I would have zero idea if there’s a snowstorm or a heatwave
More specifically: Why, when a person from a region that typically eats spicy food eats something you think is hot, do they say "this isn't spicy" even if there's like 5 jalapenos (exaggeration.) Can they taste the spice but they're just used to it and are being mean to my caucasian tastebuds, or can they literally not register any spice. If the second one, how does this work? If the prior, how does being used to spicy things work?
Edit: on reflection, 5 jalapenos clearly isnt an exaggeration.
Edit 2: I'm talking MY caucasian tastebuds. Me being from Europe where spice is not everywhere. I'm not saying white people can't be used to spice. (That's sort of what I was asking anyway, is spice tolerance nature or nurture)
My [21M] girlfriend [19F] quit her job at a grocery store a couple of months ago after her best friend decided to unfriend her. She was pretty sad about it and kind of understood why. I never really got the full story other that they lived together and she admits to have been taking advantage of her financially sometimes and being rude because she was tired from work. Needless to say, the friendship ended, she got all depressed, quit her job (literally just didn't show up ever again, and this is also my work, btw). I still work here as a cart boy. I make min wage and work 35 hrs a week on average.
She doesn't have the best relationship w her parents, so she lives with me and my parents. My mom doesn't rlly like her but my girlfriend does help around sometimes. She makes me dinner some days and does some of the laundry. She decided she wanted to camgirl, and she's made some but not much. I wasn't comfortable with the idea, but we needed money and she didn't wanna work. My paren... keep reading on reddit ➡
So since the past few months my girlfriend has become a Vegan, of course I was fine with this but after a week or two she plainly refused to cook meat, eggs, fish, dairy and all of that. Since I am the primary "breadwinner" as I work roughly 50 hours a week this was pretty annoying as she was usually the one cooking on weekdays.
Now at first I was fine eating her meals, but soon I felt really weak, dizzy and started craving bread, meat and all of that and since I work a pretty physical job I can't have that to put it bluntly, I could seriously hurt myself.
So I asked her to stop cooking for me and I started cooking my own meals about an hour after I got home, or I got take out. Unfortunate result of this was that she started craving the food I am eating too and we no longer eat together since she eats at 18:15 which is when I usually get home from work and would normally share a meal with her but I now eat at about 19:30.
Since then she has asked me to stop eating meat, I said no. S... keep reading on reddit ➡
It’s gross, if you must take a photo of your child eating (which you no doubt have thousands of already), clean their damn face! Makes me almost queasy when I see parents posting these kinds of photos on social media, or sending them in to “adorable videos compilations” etc. The worst are those Facebook pages of businesses who do food or desserts, the parents will just outright post a photo of their kid with said businesses’ product mushed all over them as if it’s supposed to be enjoyable in some way.
Newsflash - it isn’t.
I’m Italian and I think La Scarola has great flavors and huge portions, just like my grandmas food.
Edit: below is a running list of all the recommendations!
Edit: Thanks to everyone who contributed!I am capping the list at 100. I can't wait to work my way through this!
I don't consider myself an especially picky eater. There are a handful of foods I can't stand. However, one food (condiment actually) is far beyond any rational dislike for me - tartar sauce.
I don't like pickles but they don't disgust me. I'm not a huge fan of mayo but I'll eat it in certain applications. But my god...seeing people eat tartar sauce literally makes me nauseous. My wife loves it and gives me crap because if our toddler eats it and gets it all over, I can't clean her up. It makes me gag.
The really odd thing is, I'm fairly certain I've never even tried it! The look and smell puts me off so thoroughly that I know I never will. Does anyone else have a food aversion this intense for no apparent reason?
I have suffered from chronic migraines since I was a kid. Something important for every migraine sufferer to know are their "triggers". Triggers are the things in your life that are most likely to start a migraine. For some it may be extreme heat, for others it's stress and for me it's salt. I can't have a lot and if I do, a migraine will start almost right away. Due to this I can only have chinese food every once in a while and I have to be very careful to read labels for sodium content. Migraines hurt like a MOFO but can also send to me to the ER, which is expensive.
My EX MIL (I'll call her Karen) loved to cook and added too much salt to everything. It didn't take me long to notice that right after eating a meal prepared by her my head would start beating like a drum. We had dinner with them every Sunday so my Ex went to Karen, explained my situation and asked her to tone down the salt.
Karen was not happy. She thought changing the ingredients of her food would alter the taste too... keep reading on reddit ➡
We're currently not speaking because of this issue, since I find it gross and my boyfriend can't see my problem with it.
I do most of the cooking in our relationship, which I am fine with. However, occasionally my boyfriend will want to do some cooking together/do some baking. We do a lot of activities together, especially now we're both home a lot more.
The one thing I cannot stand is a habit he has when it comes to food. If my boyfriend thinks something is too dry or needs a better consistency, he will use his own spit and put it into the food. For example, the other day we were icing homemade cookies and I caught him 'thinning out' the icing mixture by spitting inside the bowl and mixing it in.
This has been an issue for some time, so he tries to hide it whenever he does it from me. But every time I catch him I just find it gross. His reply is to shrug and tell me that I get more of his saliva in my mouth when we kiss anyway, so it shouldn't be a big deal and makes literally no d... keep reading on reddit ➡
> “For whatever reason, I don’t have an answer, but I don’t think we started the game with a great competitive spirit,” Redick said. “We’ve had a couple games like that down here, for whatever reason.”
> The day started with such promise for the Pelicans. On Saturday, team owner Gayle Benson shipped crates of “New Orleans food” to the hotel for a feast. Red fish. Shrimp. Gumbo. Jambalaya. Salad. Cakes from Gambino’s bakery. Gentry told me the food was so good that Kings coach Luke Walton came over to be fed.
> “These cakes, it’s just ridiculous,” Gentry said. “Nothing that tastes that good can ever be good for you.”
I don't understand the stigma against it. MSG is amazing for cooking.
I'm still trying to work on portions though so it isn't too overwhelming or weak though.
Does anyone else cook with MSG? Any pointers?
My 18 year old daughter just started a new carpenter apprentice job, lots of grunt work mixed in. I want ideas for meals for her. I think she'll need lots of protein and easy to grab items/snacks to nibble on,to keep her energy up during the day. She has a small cooler, ice packs etc. How do people feel about energy drinks or bars for breakfast, or snacks during the day? So no beef,chicken,turkey,etc but she eats seafood,fish,like tuna, and eats eggs,milk. What's about Gatorade type drinks or other options for hydration, I think she will need more calories then straight water. Thanks
Place order at any drive through, when you get the order tell the employee that they got the order wrong and attempt to give the food back , they will then tell you that they can't take back the order because of coronavirus. Then they will replace the order and you will have doubled your food.
I joined #Reddit a few weeks ago, adding to my long list of online and social networks. I am still trying to figure things out here. But until then, I will introduce myself.
My name is Freda Muyambo. I am a food writer, co-author, and food blogger. In my years of writing, I have become known as an African Cuisine Expert, if there ever was such a term, but I guess it provides a frame of reference for my knowledge, work, and interests. I co-authored the book, the Science of Spice with several other authors, contributing the chapter dedicated to African spices.
I would love to know whether there are any focus groups here that I could join, with similar interests ranging from food history to using interesting ingredients. I would also be happy to share a few things with you if you have any questions.
Here are a few resources and links to my work. I am not getting paid to post or promote, neither am I earning royalties, just sharing more info. Do ask me anything that might... keep reading on reddit ➡
I(35M) have a son(13m).One days as my wife(32f) made a chicken sandwich for him, he told me that he didn't want to eat non veg anymore. But we didn't allow him to, since proteins are necessary for children to grow up and my son needs that at this age. When he is 18 he can do whatever he wants.He told me that he is fed up of meat and that we should make vegatables for him . I told him no and when he refused to eat what we made for him , i grounded him . His grandparents are very angry at me now. AITA?
Edit: He told us that he is not going vegetarian , but doesn't want meat for now.
