All hail the one-pot chicken and rice! Sharing my favorite quick, cheap, and easy recipe.

PIC: https://i.imgur.com/K9UMXPm.jpg

I love one-pot chicken and rice. It's what I go to when I'm not in the mood to cook but don't want to order takeout. My favorite thing about it is that you can customize it almost endlessly. I whipped this up using what I had in my fridge. The ingredient list looks long, but it's really mostly pantry staples – oil, spices, rice, and water or stock. The wild card ingredients were really just the avocado topping and cheese, but I had them tucked away in my fridge so that's why I used them. I've included substitutions below so I'm sure you could make some variation of this work with what you have in your fridge!

Recipe here originally: One-Pot Chicken and Rice

SUBSTITUTIONS:

Chicken Breasts: Chicken thighs

White Rice: Use brown or wild rice, adjust cook time and amount of stock, as necessary

ADDITIONS:

  • Bell peppers
  • Small-diced sweet potato or butternut squash
  • Poblano peppers, for a hint of smokiness
  • Baby spinach added at the very end of cooking
  • Black beans, drained and added with the tomatoes

If you want to bolster this recipe with additional, hearty vegetables like sweet potatoes or additional peppers, be sure to remove the chicken from the skillet before adding onion. Cook the onion for about 5 minutes, add the additional vegetables and season with salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder and cook until softened. Return the chicken to the pot and continue on with the recipe as written.

I added shredded cheese to mine since I had some about to go bad, but you can omit if you want to reduce calories! I also made a guacamole-ish (didn't have all the ingredients to make it legit) but you can omit or top with radishes or cilantro for a crisp finish to the dish!

One-Pot Chicken and Rice

This easy one-pot chicken and rice is a mid-week dream recipe. This one-pot chicken recipe is easy to prepare, loaded with flavor, and only requires a few ingredients.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Inactive Time: 20-30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour to 1hr10mins

Servings: 5

Calories: 503kcal

Equipment

Ok so long story short I’ve been sick for a long time and I’m on a very strict diet right now. It’s boring AF and I’m having a hard time enjoying what I’m eating...it’s only for a month before I can start adding stuff back in so I just have to get through February. I’m already sick of rice and beans...

Do you guys think you could maybe help? Any chefs out there? Nothing too complicated but I can cook okay...i really enjoy caramelizing onions and bell peppers. Anyway, I thought it might be fun to try some random recipes if anyone has some.

If you could only use this list of ingredients and nothing else, is there a yummy dish you could create?

Avocado
Gluten-free oats
Quinoa
Brown rice
White rice
Wild rice
Coffee
Tomato juice
Açaí
Blueberry
Cantaloupe
Cherry
Dates
Goji berries
Grapefruit
Grapes
Honeydew
Kiwi
Mango
Nectarine

Potato Soup? / Cooking Tips

Hi guys! New to this sub but I've been a vegetarian since 14. I'm 20 now and finally committing to veganism & making the effort to stick to it. I'm trying to cook more at home meals because of this, but I don't know how to cook at all! And I am craving a thick potato soup that isn't too unhealthy.

I've made vegan food before but not a potato soup, in fact, I've never made any soup before. I have red potatoes, celery, onions, garlic, radishes, vegan butter and milk, veggie broth,, flour, nutritional yeast, Chao cheese and chives for toppings, and seasoning stuffs- lemon, cilantro, dill, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

The recipe seems pretty straightforward and I embellished a bit, but do any experienced folks have any advice before I try this? Do I sound like I got this together right?

Is there anything you would add or take away to make it better? Thank you!!

KIMCHI

KIMCHI

Kimchi, a fermented vegetable dish, is a traditional dish that accompanies every meal served in Korea. There are many variations in recipes and forms, using different vegetables such as cabbage, radish, and cucumber. The health benefits of kimchi have been scientifically proven, increasing the global interest in this Korean food.

Origin of Kimchi

Kimchi was created as a way to preserve vegetables for the winter months. What started as cabbage simply pickled in salty brine slowly transformed into the kimchi we know today, through the addition of various spices and seasonings such as hot pepper powder.

Nutritional Value of Kimchi

Kimchi is high in nutritional value and has many health benefits, earning its spot as one of the top five healthiest foods in the world according to American health magazine β€œHealth.” Thanks to the fermentation process, kimchi contains lactic acid bacteria, a bacterium that helps with digestion and combats harmful bacteria. Kimchi also boosts the immune system and helps prevent the growth of cancer.

DO YOU THINK I HAVE ARFID??? -- my story

I have been a picky eater since as long as I can remember (although I have been told that as a baby/toddler I would eat almost anything).
My earliest "ARFID" memory is not wanting to go to our end-of-the-year kindergarten celebration b/c you couldn't bring your own lunch, the school packed a bag lunch for everybody, and I was afraid I wouldn't like the lunch and I would be hungry.
Additionally, I hate going over to friends' houses. Like don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my friends, but the whole anxiety of not knowing what will be served for meals/if I'll be able to politely decline it really gets to me. Therefore, I do my best to avoid any sort of gathering where food is involved.
I am on my school's robotics team. We have an away tournament. Now, while the tournament & hanging out with my teammates and other teams is super fun, the whole food situation sucks. We were given an allowance for lunch and were walking distance from a Subway. But I don't really eat anything at Subway, so I ended up having plain, toasted flatbread with chicken. Literally just bread and meat (and my friends teased me relentlessly for it lol). But for dinner during the tournament our team would collectively go to a restaurant. I hate restaurants. I hate eating out. If there is anything there I can eat, it's literally either on the kids menu or I will have to ask for so many substitutions/specifications that it's not even worth it lol. Luckily for the tournament, our coach told us which restaurant we were eating at ahead of time so I had a few days to meticulously inspect the menu for something I could consume without looking like a complete idiot lol. But overall, food situations are not fun for me.

However, while those experiences (and many others) may resemble ARFID, I feel like my list of "safe foods" is a little larger/more nutritionally diverse than other people with ARFID, the list being:
Veggies: (raw) pea pods, (raw) green beans, (raw) carrots, (raw) radishes, (raw or cooked) corn, potatoes (no skins), pumpkin (sometimes)
Fruit: strawberries, raspberries, black raspberries, apples, avocado, watermelon
Grains: flour tortillas, homemade flatbread, homemade pancakes/waffles (sometimes), croissants, cereal (two types)
Dairy: ice cream (only vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, or peanut butter cup)
Protein: peanut butter, edamame, chicken tenders
Desserts: chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake (no frost

Great article about the recent APH Experiment: "Radishes grown in space for first time"

"NASA's latest plant experiment, called Plant Habitat-02 (PH-02), is the first time that radishes have been grown on the orbiting laboratory. Kate Rubins is a microbiologist on Expedition 64, the current long-duration mission to the ISS, which began on 21st October 2020 and runs until 18th April 2021. She used the station's Advanced Plant Habitat (APH) to cultivate radishes, a model plant that is nutritious, edible and develops quickly."

"Radishes are a different kind of crop compared to leafy greens that astronauts previously grew on the space station, or dwarf wheat which was the first crop grown in the APH," said Nicole Dufour, NASA APH program manager at Kennedy Space Center. "Growing a range of crops helps us determine which plants thrive in microgravity and offer the best variety and nutritional balance for astronauts on long-duration missions."

My doctor prescribed Keto.

So, I lost a lot of weight on keto, then some medical things happened in my family (not to me, but I was caretaker). I'm finally getting back on the wagon. At my heaviest when I was eating my stress, I was 203 lb. I'm 5'5", so yeah, not great. I started keto after I had already dropped a few pounds with reduced intake and exercise.

I just got my labs back and a note from my doctor (who is also an old friend). Cholesterol was up due to the 'bad kind' (I know that's not an end all be all label and don't know if posting the numbers is asking for medical advice/FAQ no-no), and his instructions were basically, "this is probably genetic. Exercise 5x a week, stick to a low carb diet, start some fish oil and see me in January."

I'm a meat and potatoes guy. I don't like a lot of veggies, but I am experimenting and learning (and checking the nutritional info). I've got radishes and leeks to go with a pork roast I'm making today.

I consider this a on the road to success and on the road to my GW of 175. I weighed in at 187 today. I really didn't have keto flu this time and I can already tell I am sleeping better.

Why nobody talks about all the anti nutrients in vegetables and all the issue that goes along with it?

Don't you love it when you hear how good and healthy fruits/vegetables are for you? How you need fiber and all those good vitamins/minerals which are all lacking in animal foods (check part one to see the actual truth). Let's talk about something that is usually not mentioned, the anti-nutrients present in plants.

  1. ANTINUTRIENTS IN PLANT-BASED FOODS2.1. Lectins

Lectins, particularly abundant in plants, are proteins or glycoproteins of non-immune origin. They have the ability to bind, without modifying, to either carbohydrates or glyco-conjugates (glycoproteins, glycolipids, polysaccharides). They can successfully recognize animal cell carbohydrates, which corresponds to the Latin derivation of the word legere meaning to select [21]. Lectins have a variety of roles. They can bypass human defense system and travel all over the body causing diseases (i.e. Crohn’s disease, Coeliac-Sprue, colitis, etc.) by breaking down the surface of the small intestine [22]. When large quantities of lectins are introduced in the body, the gut wall develops holes, and intestinal permeability, causing the leaky gut syndrome. Lectins can make cells act as if they have been stimulated by insulin or cause the insulin release by the pancreas. Lectins can also cause autoimmune diseases by presenting wrong immune system codes and stimulating the growth of some white blood cells [23, 24]. This may possibly lead to cancer but lectins have not yet been recognized as cancer causing.

Not all variety of lectins are toxic or responsible for intestinal damage. Lectins can be found in plant species such as wheat, beans, quinoa, peas, etc. [25]. As grains are a common part of the birds’ diet, it has been found that birds themselves are resistant to grains lectins [26]. Acne, inflammation, migraines or joint pains can be caused by the consumption of lectins [27]. Lectins are usually found in the hull so choosing white rice can lower the lectin intake. Heating plant sources in the process of cooking can significantly lower the amount of lectins in them. White potatoes, for instance, have a highe

We’re growing radishes in space to help inform NASA’s goal of sustaining crews on long-duration space exploration missions, including to the Moon and Mars. Ask us anything!

Edit: Thank you so much for joining us! We're signing off now, but we had so much fun answering such pertinent questions! If you want to learn more, please check out the links in the description below. Thanks again!

I’m Dr. Karl Hasenstein, professor of biology at the University of Lafayette. I’m sending radish seeds to grow in space so we can learn about light and soil conditions best suited for plant growth in space, and the nutritional quality of radishes for astronauts.

I’m Dave Reed, I’m an engineer working for a company called Techshot, and I manage the Advanced Plant Habitat, a large, enclosed, environmentally-controlled chamber where we can grow plants with very specific lighting, water, atmosphere, and soil conditions aboard the space station.

The Plant Habitat-02 experiment is launching on Northrop Grumman’s 14th (NG-14) commercial resupply cargo mission to the International Space Station. Launch is currently targeted for Tuesday, Sept. 29, with a launch window opening at 10:26 p.m. EDT. Live coverage starts at 10 p.m. EDT on NASA TV: https://www.nasa.gov/live

This cargo mission also includes cancer research, a new space toilet, and a virtual reality camera that will film a spacewalk. Read more.

Crop Efficiency (2/?) 🌿| Wrenny

Hi, I am back the next day with a new post on dirt!! 🌸🌿🌿

This post is about gardening in an urban area! ❀

I know that yesterday I made a big post about sweet potatoes, and not everybody feels that they have the space to undertake gardening. Today I was going to be talking about soil, but I wanted to talk about urban gardening instead.

First, you need to identify your type of space. If you live in an apartment, an urban home, a suburban home, or a rural home, you can garden. However, I make different plant recommendations for different people. When you have meals, remember that you eat for TWO things: calories and nutrition. Your calorically dense foods are unlikely to be nutritionally dense and vice versa. Calorie dense foods are things like bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes; Nutritionally dense foods are kale, salmon, eggs, kelp and seaweed, and also fermented foods like kimchi and sauerkraut.

If you live in an urban area, you are most likely surrounded by nonperishable calories. You may think, I do not need to grow a tiny amount of plants, I can just survive off of the Pringles and Funyuns. YOU CANNOT SURVIVE OFF OF THE PRINGLES AND FUNYUNS. Everybody THINKS that they have enough until they are actually hungry!!

Whole wheat <3

You should have enough food in your home so that every member of your family -- including any pets you wish to support -- can eat 1-2 meals a day. You want to have a mixture of non-perishable goods, like canned goods (stay away from canned low nutrient vegetables) and long term storage goods, like whole grains (wheat, barley, rice). If you choose to store whole grain in your home, you will also need a hand-cranked grain mill to make flour -- for the pleasantness of eating.

I recommend that every family keep lots of multivitamins, as it comes in handy when you are forced to have gaps in your diet.

Now, earlier I mentioned eating for nutrition versus eating for calories. Ideally, the plants that you choose to grow in an urban area are really good in one of these ways, because your space is limited.

First, I will cover potted gardens.

Natural treatment that maybe work

Hello everybody,

I am fourty years old and since my teenage years I have always had a serious "bacne" and even after 2 cure of Roaccutane (I think it's called Accutane now) rather effective, it always came back. I have tried a whole bunch of alternative treatments but none have ever had such satisfactory results. A few months ago I discovered by chance in a last burst of despair a possible effective "natural" treatment against acne : Acnavance.

**The ingredients :

**Nutritional Analysis for 2 capsules:

Zinc: 15 mg (150% *)Β Magnesium: 120 mg (32% *)Β Selenium: 41.25 ΞΌg (75% *)Β Vit.Β B5: 6 mg (100% *)Β N-Acetyl Cysteine: 100 mgΒ Black Radish Dry Extract: 100 mgΒ Burdock: 100 mgΒ Turmeric: 50 mg, of which curcumin: 47.5 mgΒ Wild Thought Extract: 20 mgΒ Lactobacillus Casei 25 mg or 2.5 billion CFU **Β Lactobacillus Rhamnosus 25 mg or 2.5 billion CFU **

The weird thing is that I had tested each of these ingredients separately before but it didn't work at all.The only problem is that it constipates (maybe from the probiotics).

So instead of taking 2 capsules a day, I take one every two - three days. It's a little bit less effective, but it's much better than what I've been able to test so far.

Now I have to take care of my scars and unfortunately I have not yet found a miracle product ;)

Voila, hope that it can help people!

New to healthy eating looking for advice critisism help tips

Whats up guys,

I need your help,

im ridiculously new to this food thing.

Im looking to start eating super healthy (maybe build up in phases) But i dont know where to start im super overwhelmed and dont understand it

I have fatigue issues - so im looking for healthy tasty meals that are quick relatively eazy to prepare (no hours of culinary wonders) and the hours of online wading through dense articles is really zapping me

At the bottom i write what i currently do

-meal prepping is this for making all the meals ahead of time or just organising it all in containers making it eazy to prepare? I dont have and use a microwave

-i dont know what officially needs to be in my food, over a week, - and over a day in terms of breakfast lunch etc. I try to use what i know but i need some model or official data To weigh my meals against. where can i find a kind of solid overview or a basic explanation? At the bottom i describe what i do

I dont get what calories, carbs, proteins and these things are do i need to be counting this? Im missing the lens to view my meals through Online in the articles β€œhealthy”seems to mean at random losing weight, minimal calories, then it means vegan, then it means eating for optimal fitness performance, then healthy means bulking, then it means getting lean. And often not clearly stated. I just need to eat for alot of nutrition and health so that my body can restore and make it relatively eazy to do.

-so what i do right now?

Evening meal

-I try to eat big portions of fresh vegatables everyday. But i only eat a few kinds

-i eat chicken breast everyday i buy 2 kilos pre-chopped in cubes for huge energy saver, n freeze in 350 gram zip baggies

-I prechop veggies in boxes in fridge for about 3 days ahead - so i only need to wash n straight into pan

I eat mainly: broccoli, Oxheart cabbage And frozen spinache. But i dont like spinache that much

I dont really know what other healthy vegetables i like that are eazy to make good meals from.

I eat with rice because its eazy to make Potatoes i like but the cutting takes alot of work n i have hand injuries, you can also not precut potatoes and save for later they get brown in an hour I tried mini potatoes in the skin for in the oven but they often have roots n all kinds of parts in it that needs be cut out so they still need to be cut

Breakfast - greek yoghurt. With blueberries from the freezer, alot of oatmeal and teaspoon brown sugar

What they used to eat in Europe

Here is a recollection of what a young woman ate, growing up in Hungary and France in the 1950s to '70s. The writer is, Angela Stanton, PhD, (u/MigraineDoc) an expert in treating migraines. I told her that her essay, written for a low carb email forum addressing right now the imminent release of the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the DGA, might be of interest here, to those who eat. The underlying truth, now understood as such, is that saturated fat is not harmful to the heart and liver.

"What are healthy food recommendations for people who are healthy?

I come from another era and from another country. When and where I grew up β€” in Hungary and France in the 1960s to β€˜70s β€” there were no obese people, diabetes was unheard of, heart disease existed on a genetic or bacterial (strep throat) level, cancer was rare, and people lived long, healthy lives with a longer life expectancy than today, except for those who smoked and died from lung diseases, which was not uncommon.

What did these people eat? And why aren't we recommending these foods to the healthy in order to stay healthy? Why do we have to wait until they become sick and then recommend the diet that would have kept them from becoming sick in the first place? I really don't understand the logic of recommending low carbs diet for those who are metabolically sick, while continuing to recommend high carb for those who are still healthy. Why would we do that?

Moreover, if you ask me what these people ate, I can tell you what I ate and what I saw my family, people in my school and work (we were provided food both at school and at work), ate: low carbs, high animal protein and fat, and minimal processed foods.

Fruits and veggies were only seasonal. Heck, I had to wait for summer to eat ice cream! It was not made unless it was summer and only for the short duration of summer!

Oil was not known till I was about 16-17 years old, so we cooked in butter, lard, and duck fat. Lots of pork, duck, and fatty fish every day, organs, including blood sausages (still consumed in a variety of forms), liver-stuffed meat, etc., bacon that was raw and uncured, eaten every day. Salami sausages for breakfast with a slice of rye bread that had a thick layer of either pork lard or butter on it, served with radishes/green onions/peppers/tomatoes, all in season only. For lunch and dinner, usually meat, often no side dish at all. Most side dishes would have been potato, some rice and beans, and seldomly, e

CSA Meals through the season

Hello all,

This year was my FIRST year signing up for a CSA in my community. I live in the Northeast USA. As the year has unfolded, I've been having fun documenting all the meals we have made with our locally grown goodies. The season just came to an end and I thought I'd share the meals we made throughout the season (June-end of October).

Most of the dishes have a recipe linked to them. If there is a recipe link missing, let me know and I can find it and edit the post.

Overall, it was a BLAST to have new ingredients to cook with this year. I enjoyed looking up these meals and cooking them. For the most part, these meals were a success. You can tell when we REALLY liked a dish because we cooked it a few weeks in a row or it shows up at some point again.

A few things to note:

  • We are a 2 family household so three meals usually gets us through the week as we eat leftovers in between.
  • I froze many of the soups for the winter.
  • I also got really into making sauerkraut and have quite a bit to get us through the winter.
  • I discovered the wonder of violife cheese, specifically the feta "cheese" and goodness was it a game changer and, more or less, an obsession throughout the summer. I've finally laid off at this point but we were going steady there for awhile! You'll see me mention it frequently as "feta cheese", that is what I am referencing.
  • I learned how to make my own pita this summer. Any time there is a recipe like tacos or gyros, the pita was all homemade. I followed the recipes of the Sustainably Vegan vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcEkrFXz1xk

I'd love to hear people's thoughts and additional recipe ideas, excited for next year already! Also, we ended with an abundance of turnips that I am skeptical of...any ideas?!!

CSA Meals 2020

Week 1:

  • Miso glazed turnips (sauteed) (this turned into a season FAVORITE as a side dish). https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/miso-glazed-turnips
  • Barley risotto with radish and swiss chard (it was okay...next time would just use arborio rice)
  • French lentil salad with kohlrabi (CSA), carrots, scallions, "feta" cheese. Dressing of olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper
    • This was delicious. Hope to make again during this CSA.

Brahmin way of food is best - Brought to you by whatsaap

Brahmin meal.

A Group of American Dieticians found, in their study of food habits and cooking practices across the globe, that the South Indian Brahmin meal is, by far the best, to sustain and support good health.

Here below, you find the Brahmin way of food preparation.

You are what you eat. Isn't it? At least, that seems the way Brahmins view cooking.

Brahmin cuisine is based on the concept that food shapes the personality, mood and mind and a healthy vegetarian diet fosters serene qualities. In Brahmin households, food is cooked with a great deal of attention to cleanliness; to the balancing of nutrition, flavor, texture and variety.

The spices they use play an important role in our everyday life. Fenugreek as a digestive aid, cumin has multiple usages, dried legumes and beans are great protein sources, pepper is the best home remedy for colds and coughs, turmeric is the wonder healer of wounds.

Curry leaves and coriander leaves aid cleansing the intestines and kidneys.

Every ingredient used in the Brahmin cuisine has a purpose, that goes beyond its taste and texture.

Typically, idli, dosa, Rice upma are the common breakfast dishes. Brahmins do not prefer oily dishes in the morning for breakfast because, consumption of oil blunts the brain temporarily and don’t we all need sharp minds in the morning hours at our work place?

Tomato chutney is prepared as tomatoes contain lycopene, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants. A daily or even weekly dose of a spoonful of tomato chutney is good in preventing cancer.

Rice Upma is a ready breakfast in just over 7 minutes. It has all the goodness of rice and won't let you get hungry soon.

Some Brahmins skip breakfast. They straight go to lunch at about 10 AM. You stay fresh and agile, all through the day.

Lunch is not just a romance with food, lunch is an offering to the rejuvenation of the body, and the meal is cooked with the combination of spices in such a way that the soul stays serene.

Plantain stem curry, the white centre piece of the banana plant is chopped and added with assorted spices. It makes a delicious side dish. It is high in fiber content and aids in digestion. Babies are fed with the juice of plantain stem to be cured of colic.

Yet another favorite amongst all is lady’s finger fry. It’s an absolute yummy dish. Kids are often told that lady’s finger makes them brainy, smart and intelligent.

Greens are a great favourite in this community. Almost everyday there w

Caring for rabbits while under COVID-19 quarantine

Last updated May 8, 2020

Since we are getting many repetitive questions about the novel coronavirus and how to care for rabbits while under quarantine, this is a post to combine all frequently asked questions on the topic. Please leave a comment if you'd like to see additional information added, and feel free to discuss your own planned procedures for quarantine.

What should I stock up on if we are under quarantine?

The important food supplies that rabbits should have are hay, pellets, and water. Try to aim to have at least several weeks of dried stable food available. You should be able to order these online, but local pet stores will also likely be open under shelter-in-place orders as an essential service. Call or check online before heading over as they may have limited hours.

While less urgent, you may also want to make sure that you have a stock of at least a month of rabbit-safe litter on hand as well.

It is also a good idea to use this opportunity to stock up on a rabbit first-aid kit and emergency supplies, especially for GI stasis. This includes basics like liquid infant simethicone, Critical Care, Pedialyte, syringes, and Metacam and a motility drug from your rabbit-savvy veterinarian if possible.

http://bunny.tips/First_aid_kit

What about fresh vegetables?

Most grocery stores will still be open as an essential service under shelter-in-place orders. Call or check online before heading over as they may have limited hours.

You can also buy or make dried herbs and dehydrated vegetables, but your rabbits will be fine on just hay and pellets indefinitely in the worst case as that should provide all the fiber and vitamins and minerals they need. Be aware of their hydration levels and make sure that they are drinking enough water if you don't feed fresh vegetables anymore.

While frozen greens can still be edible and safe, most rabbits will not like the change in texture, and the vegetables will spoil faster when thawed. We would recommend dehydrating them instead for storage. You may use an oven or a dehydrator for this task.

Alternatively, if you have a green thumb, you can try growing rabbit-safe vegetables and flowers at home.

What kind of vegetables are easy to grow at home for a beginner?

Most herbs and grass are very forgiving. A few ideas:

  • thyme
  • oregano
  • sage
  • rosemary
  • mint
  • wheatgrass
  • oat grass

Larger vegetables include:

  • lettuce
  • kale
  • fennel
  • carrots

My complete research about Nofap . A little lengthy .

Combining Some Texts that i read on Bhramcharya / Semen Retention

There are two things in this world that one should not waste. One is money and the other is semen. All the money in this world is going down the drain. It should not be used for oneself. Money should not be misused and one should practice brahmacharya as much as possible. The ultimate extract of our nourishment is semen and it is dissipated and lost in sex. There are certain nerves in the body that help preserve semen and this in turn protects the body. Therefore, brahmacharya should be preserved as much as possible.

With brahmacharya you can achieve whatever you want to. With brahmacharya your worldly aims will be accomplished. You will be able to follow your vows and commitments. There is ease of further progress in all directions. The extract of non- Self, brahmacharya is a very important. If this is present it opens the Self.

The person who is under the vow of brahmacharya will never fall, no matter how bad the difficulties. That is called safe side.

Brahmacharya is the king of the body. A person practicing brahmacharya has a wonderful mind. Brahmacharya is the extract of the entire living body.

Sex is poison is not known. If they did know that sex is poison, they would stay away from it.

So many people ask me, β€˜What is there in sex that my whole body feels like death after experiencing the pleasure of sex, my mind dies and my speech dies?’ I tell them that all these people indulging in sexuality are already dead, but because you have not awakened to this fact, the same condition occurs again and again. Otherwise if ever brahmacharya is preserved, each human being has so much energy. The knowledge of the Self is the ultimate essence of time (samayasaar). This is real awareness that increases the experience of the Self. And brahmacharya is the essence of the living body.

The presence of brahmacharya in the mind, the body and the speech results in wonderful power of mind, wonderful power of body and wonderful power of the speech. What type of sexuality existed in the times of Lord Mahavir? The sex was limited to having one to two children. The Lord knew that this interaction would be abused in this day and age, so he had to add the fifth vow of brahmacharya.

A gentleman once told me that he misses his wife when he is at work. You fool! Would you lick pus off her hand, if she developed an abscess? Then, why are you so fascinated by a woman? This whole body is full of pus

A few meal ideas

I'm a just vegetarian but I've really been enjoying the this set of vegan meals for the last few weeks and found they are pretty cheap!

Breakfast: Avocado and Radish Toast

  • Bread
  • Avocado half on each (I get the bags of tiny avocados and find that half on each slice is perfect and they are way cheaper than big ones which are too much for this recipe anyway).
  • sauted radishes (greens and everything!). I have these from my garden right now but they are also super cheap at stores
  • topped with some salt, nutritional yeast, and sriacha
  • side of strawberries or raspberries. I also get these from my garden but they are in season and should be cheap at local grocers or farmers markets

Lunch: Curried Coconut Yogurt

  • saute some garlic, ginger, and curry powder in some olive oil to make a nice paste
  • toss in chickpeas to coat
  • add some coconut yogurt (I like a lot to make it a hearty and creamy dish)
  • toss in spinach (I will sometimes use frozen spinach to make it cheaper. If I do this I'll either defrost it separately or throw it in to cook before the yogurt)
  • take it off the heat and add in the juice of one lime and some salt

Dinner: Yum Bowl This is really just a big combination of the following things:

  • quinoa (bulk price is best price)
  • beans (I usually use a combo of kidney, black, and canoli)
  • tempeh cubbed and cooked with olive oil, tumeric, and some salt and pepper (shout out to trader Joe's for the cheapest tempeh I've been able to find)
  • roasted brocolli with nutritional yeast
  • yum sauce (a brand of creamy vegan sauce that is available to me locally - but any creamy sauce like tahini or even salsa goes great with this
  • depending on what else I have I will also throw is kale, avocado, really whatever!

Anyway, just thought I would share. The prep for all of this is really fast and easy to make a lot and it keeps well.

A Week of the Keto Diet: 7-Day Keto Meal Plan

https://preview.redd.it/0fo1orpf2bs51.png?width=2120&format=png&auto=webp&s=c000c2ecee925815c7c5fe7ef5be121cba01eda0

Day 1: Monday

Total net carbs: 20.7g

Breakfast (4.6g net carbs): Eggs Scrambled with SautΓ©ed Onions and Cheddar Cheese

Snack (2g net carbs): Atkins Peanut Butter Fudge Crisp Bar

Lunch (5.8g net carbs): 6 oz deli ham over 2 cups mixed greens with Β½ Hass avocado, 5 large black olives, Β½ cup sliced cucumbers, and 2 Tbsp blue cheese dressing

Snack (4.5g net carbs): 3/4 medium zucchini cut into sticks and 2 oz provolone cheese

Dinner (3.8g net carbs): Baked Catfish with Broccoli and Herb-Butter Blend

Keto tip of the day: Low carb diets like Atkins keto have a diuretic effect, so make sure you’re drinking at least 6 to 8 glasses of water each day. Not consuming enough waterβ€”especially when starting a new low carb dietβ€”can lead to constipation, dizziness, and sugar/carb cravings. Also make sure you add extra salt to your diet in order to make sure you’re getting enough electrolytes. Try sipping on full-sodium broth or adding a little extra salt to your food.

Day 2: Tuesday

Total net carbs: 20.6g

Breakfast (5g net carbs): Atkins Frozen Farmhouse-Style Sausage Scramble

Snack (4.4g net carbs): 1 cup sliced red bell pepper with 2 Tbsp ranch dressing

Lunch (5.8g net carbs): Bacon-Cheddar Cheese Soup

Snack (2.2g net carbs): 1 stalk celery with 2 Tbsp cream cheese

Dinner (3.2g net carbs): 7 oz bone-in pork chop with Cauliflower-Cheddar Mash

Keto tip of the day: Get moving! Exercising regularly can help you achieve ketosis by aiding your body in using up its excess glucose before storing as glycogen. It’s normal to feel a bit sluggish when starting a keto diet, so if you’re new to the low carb lifestyle, stay active with low-intensity movement like yoga and walking. When you’re feeling more energized, add in some high-intensity exercise a few days a week.

Day 3: Wednesday

Total net carbs: 19.7g

Breakfast (2.9g net carbs): Spinach and Swiss Cheese Omelet

Snack (1g net carbs): Atkins Strawberry Shake

Lunch (6g net carbs): Grilled chicken over baby spinach, tomato, and avocado salad

Snack (2.2g net carbs): 2 oz ham, 2 Tbsp cream cheese, and 2 dill pickle spears

Dinner (7.6g net carbs): Beef Sauteed with Vegetables Over Romaine

Keto tip of the day: If you are new to a low carb lifestyle, you might start to come down with what’s known as the keto flu. A term coined by the keto community, this is a temporary si

Thiamine - potential relevance to COVID 19 and Inflammation

Free radicals produced by neutrophils seem to be a promising area of focus for COVID19 therapies. Thiamine can reduce the production of superoxide and H2O2 via inhibition of NADPH oxidase in the neutrophil, and also reduce production of extracellular traps, which are implicated currently as major causes of injury in this illness -

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0221016

>Transketolase and vitamin B1 influence on ROS-dependent neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) formation
>
>....As a cofactor for TKT reaction, we evaluated the release of NET formation either in vitamin B1 treatment or in combined use of oxythiamine and vitamin B1, and found that those treatments also exerted a significant suppressive effect on the amount of NET-DNA and ROS production.

The NADPH oxidase in neutrophils also produces peroxinitrite via superoxide combining with nitric oxide produced by another enzyme, iNOS. The rate limiting factor is said to be the superoxide in this.

Peroxynitrite is a potentially important free radical in addition to H2O2. Also, thiamine may be a direct antioxidant, or rather, anti-nitrogen reactive species compound - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3085841/

Thiamine deficiency increases IL-6

am I insane? Cover crop with purslane during the summer when nothing else is actually growing?

tldr; should I plant purslane in my new raised bed in the desert heat since nothing else seems to be growing or even surviving?

So, I built a 4x7 sub irrigated raised garden bed. I’ve mulched it with alpine shavings. Planted a few square feet of it. Radish’s are dying. Beets didn’t germ well, the only two that have popped up are just staying tiny tiny, all beans that popped up have died from the hear and sun. Cow peas are growing. Cucumbers are weathering it and growing slowly.... I’ve got some tomatoes and egg plants and peppers that are getting ready to be transplanted and seem to at least be surviving the heat.

I’ve ordered shade cloth and have been waiting on it.

But. I’m looking at the slow growth in this heat, and then looking at the prolific growth of purslane. At the edge of the yard that just popped out of the clay under the wall. Healthy edible high nutrition superfood weed. Started using some extra as an addition to compost, started using as a chop and drop mulch for some baby Moringa trees Im trying to grow for super food and compost and wood chips. Looking at this no till stuff, teaming with microbes stuff, etc etc etc. Main thing on my mind is that adding organic matter and life to the soil is probably much better than just leaving the majority of this raised bed mulched with lifeless wood shavings. Soooo... should I actually plant a weed in my raised bed? Get some roots growing of a plant that can thrive in this heat? Something that will keep the soil cooler, something that I can chop and drop or compost for future nutrition as well? Maybe just reframe it from weed to green heat loving nutritious multi use plant?

New at this. Don’t want to mess up a raised bed I’ve just built, but feel like I need to get some life in there.

Arizona. 9b. Lots of damn hot days. Half shade here is probably close to full sun during these months.

Any thoughts? Suggestions on something else I can plant now? Am I a mad genius? Village Idiot?

Thanks

Radish leaves when making stock?

Can you put in radish leaves when making chicken or beef stock (in addition to carrots, onions, etc)? Or even veggie stock? I save leftover bits of veggies to add in when making stocks, and I have some nice looking radish leaves that I want to toss in the bag with the rest. They should add nutrition but would it create any kind of "off taste" to the stock?

Thanks for any opinions or knowledge.

The Importance Of Diet For Healthy Aging

Eating right provides your body with energy, fuel for your organs, and nutrients to maintain your health. In addition, it supports a healthy weight, which means you decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes, and other serious metabolic disorders, heart disease, aches, and pains of the joints, and the many other ailments that result from obesity. A healthy diet is key to enjoying good health and longer life.

However, if only things were that easy and convenient. In today’s hectic lifestyle, we are juggling work and family with other responsibilities and so it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves.

https://preview.redd.it/6tov2iiqd8j51.jpg?width=300&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=296f73c702bf27cd17fcab96bbb282242aac3ba7

We get hungry and grab whatever is closest and takes the shortest amount of time to consume. Because we are so swamped and rushed, we lean towards the food that has the least nutritional value just to give our taste buds a quick fix. Therefore, we grab fast food and processed snacks draped in pretty wrappings and we’re done with it.

Then, the years start to add up and we feel sick, exhausted, and worn out.

Our bodies have had enough and can’t keep up anymore and we begin to feel the toll of all our bad choices, and since technology has programmed us to never wait for anything, we search for a quick fix for to our exhaustion so we can quickly return to our busy schedules.

Therefore, we turn to β€œmagic pills” and quick diet fixes hoping to make our health problems disappear forever. However, if we’re not careful, these quick fixes will definitely do more harm than good in the long run. They will take a further toll on our health and instead of feeling good quickly, things will start to go downhill pretty fast.

The good news is that there is a better, more effective way to be healthy, fit, and stay that way, the only catch is that it requires time, attention, and consistency. That’s it! Think of it as an investment towards your health and you’ll reap the returns in enjoying vitality and good health as the years go by.

Growing old is inevitable, you can’t escape from it. However, by making smarter choices when it comes to what you eat and drink, you can add many years to your life.

From 418 lbs to 171 lbs! Reached my goal weight this week! No surgery, just CICO and exercise.

https://imgur.com/a/9VE5lHC

On April 1st of, 2017 I weighed in at 418 lbs., after much hard work and dedication on December 18th, of 2018 I dropped below my goal weight of 173 lbs. hitting 171.4 lbs. I am 5'10''.

I used to wear a size 68 portly suit jacket, size 68' waist dress pants, size 24' neck 37/38' sleeve dress shirts, and size 7XLT tee shirts. Today I rock a 42 R slim fit suit jacket, size 32'-34' waist dress pants, size 15' neck 34/35'' sleeve dress shirts, and size XS-M tee shirts depending on the cut and manufacturer.

I didn’t have any weight loss surgery, I have not had any loose skin removed yet (yes there is a lot of loose skin), I didn't follow some crazy fad diet. I utilized CICO (calories in, calories out), and exercise.

Some other statistics for those who LOVE math; Year 1: Daily average calories1408.46, weekly average calories consumed 9847.53, calories burned via exercise per week 7639.64, average lost per week 4.9 lbs. Year 2: Daily average calories1509.13, weekly average calories consumed 10,567, calories burned via exercise per week 5628.08, average lost per week 2.19 lbs.

It wasn't always easy, I tried to stay positive for a majority of the weight loss journey, I stumbled a few times, but now I have crossed the finish line and begin a new chapter in my life by maintaining what I have achieved.

I hope that others in this sub who are about to give up, or who just need a little push to help them across their own finish line can take some motivation from this post. If I can do it at age 44, just about anyone can do it!

The last time I posted on this sub I got a lot of questions so just to recap from that previous post:

TL; DR: Calories in, calories out, exercise, tracking.

First, I use quite a few apps:

  1. MyFitnessPal for calorie, nutrition, and exercise tracking.
  2. C25K, to learn to run over an eight-week period.
  3. Map My Run, to track my running calories burned and distance.
  4. Map My Ride, to track my biking distance and calorie burn.

I made a spreadsheet in Excel. Once a week, on weigh-in day (which is typically Monday or Tuesday) I enter data from my apps to track trends including: Starting weight, current weight, amount of weight lost or gained for the week, daily calorie average for the week, weekly calorie total, weekly total of calories burned via exercise, starting BMI, current BMI, current weight BMR, and weekly calorie deficit.

Foods You Can Eat on a Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss

While on a ketogenic diet, it is very important to ensure that one eat within the restrictions of the diet. This is vital so as for the individual to be able to remain in a state of ketosis.

Going out of ketosis can be as simple as eating one or two meals that are not recommended on the diet. However, coming back into ketosis is another different story entirely. This can often takes days or weeks depending on how strict you become when you get back on the diet.

Meals in a ketogenic diet comprise of three basic food types. These are the:

  1. fruit or vegetable
  2. protein-rich food
  3. fat source

Fats

Ketogenic diets by nature involve the consumption of increased amounts of fats in the diet. They can come in as part of the cooking process or as sauces and dressings.

The best types of fats are those medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These include both MCT oil and coconut oil. Medium-chain triglycerides are easily metabolized to produce ketones. Some other equally good fats for ketosis include:

Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids

Salmon, Shellfish, Trout, Tuna

Monounsaturated and Saturated fats

Olive oil, Avocado, Butter, Cheese, Red palm oil, Egg yolks

Non-hydrogenated oils (when cooking)

Coconut oil, Beef tallow, Non-hydrogenated lards

High oleic

Safflower oils, Sunflower oils

Other fat sources:

Chicken skin, Coconut butter, Peanut butter, Fat on meats

Proteins

When buying your protein foods, always try to choose grass-fed, organic and humanely raised meat and wild-caught seafood. Apart from offering more nutrients, they have not been exposed to added hormones, antibiotics, and other potential toxins.

Meat

The ketogenic diet accepts basically any type of meat. There is no discrimination about the type of cut or preparation.

Beef, Goat, Lamb, Pork, Veal, Venison

Poultry

Any type of poultry is also allowed by the diet. You can improve the content of the meal by leaving the skin on. However, breading and batter should not be used in the preparation of poultry as they are usually high in carbohydrates. Other than that, you can prepare your poultry to your liking.

Chicken, Duck, Game hen, Goose, Ostrich, Partridge, Pheasant, Quail, Squab, Turkey

Seafood

Another great source of protein is seafood. Seafood is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. They also have high amounts of minerals and vitamins to help keep you well-nourished and healthy.

Clams, Crab, Lobster, Mussels, Oysters, Prawns, Scallops, Shrimp, Snails

Panic bought seeds? Not sure what to do with them? Here's some local help!

As an avid gardener, I ran across a couple posts about people who bought seeds and now are not sure how to handle them, or what to do with them, or are really excited to see sprouts but don't know what the next step is, as gardening is new to them. As I am stuck at home with nothing to do BUT garden and reddit, I thought it might be helpful to put my years of experience as a hobbyist to use and/or get a conversation going with other gardeners about what's going on in Baltimore this time of year in the great outdoors. If anything, it gives my hands a break from weeding. If you already garden and don't need the basics, skip to the bottom.

Without further ado:

((Step 0.5: Acquire your plants))

In theory, you've already done this while scouring the local market for any form of meat or bread, whatsoever. If you haven't, and want to, some seed companies are still shipping from their online sites. If you would like to buy local, the Meyer Seed Company operates out of downtown Baltimore and have a very good selection of seeds, leaning on the vegetable side.

Step 1: CONSIDER THE WEATHER

We had a very mild winter, and have been having reasonably mild weather the last month, so it looks unlikely that there will be a frost from here on out, however, there is still a rule of thumb that there is a chance of frost up until April 15th. Plants that are cold tolerant and/or frost tolerant can be started or planted outside now. These include lettuces, peas, spinach, kale, cabbage, broccoli, onions, most Asian greens, and radishes. Plants that are NOT cold tolerant can be started inside. These include tomatoes, peppers, melons, squash, beans, and beet relatives. For anything else, check out this handy chart.

Step 2: FIND SOME SUNNY DIRT

Vegetables are lovely, but pretty much all of them like a maximum amount of sunlight (with rare exceptions for things in the heat of summer, but don't worry about that now!) in very rich soil. So, assuming the time is right to plant, then it's time to dig a hole or twenty in the ground. Maryland soil tends to be heavy, with a lot of clay, and not always nutrient rich. Do not let that deter you -- just keep in mind that the more clay in your soil, the harder it is for baby plants to root, and more compacted it will b

As a Lazy person, here is how I eat healthy

Hey Guys,

I think it will be fun for all of us lazy people to share recipes which are quick to make and healthy.

Prerequisites - Rice cooker (must have), Pressure cooker/instant pot (optional but recommended), Blender (must have for smoothies/hummus)

Recipes :

  • Smoothies - Omg, this is god's gift. I am having smoothies almost every night for dinner. Who needs to cook when you can cram in so much nutritional value in a drink and it keeps you totally full. My choice of ingredients - Cooked quinoa, instant oats, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax powder, banana, peanut butter, spinach, apple cider vinegar

  • Indian curries - Although it seems like a long list of ingredients and an exhaustive process, once you have cooked it a few times, it is the simplest thing ever. You can make a lot of curries using just a single pattern of saueting onions/tomatoes first, adding spices, adding your choice of vegetables and then pressure cooking/regular cooking. I make Dal (lentils), potato curry, eggplant and others using this way

  • Things you can just eat by soaking them in water overnight and optionally adding a little salt/pepper to taste - Oats, Kala Chana , Moong bean

  • Rice Pilaf/Spanish Rice/Chicken Rice in Rice cooker. Rice cooker is another great invention. I just add frozen vegetables, spices and rice in rice cooker like this and out comes several tasty dishes. Heck, you could just insert a single tomato in rice cooker and it will taste delicious. I also make quinoa, steamed fish(using the steamer part), omlette and others. If you can get a rice cooker with saute function, that is even better. People have even made chicken teriyaki wings using rice cooker!

  • Instant pot - one pot recipes. Although I haven't personally used instant pot, my friend swear by these as they can dump all ingredients (just like rice cooker) and pressure cook very fast tasty meals

  • Having nuts/vegetable baked chips/other healthy snacks laying around for instant snacking

  • Fruits - I usually buy those fruits which I like

A Suggested PTSD Recovery Diet

I've been doing a bit of digging into what kind of dietary modifications might be helpful in promoting recovery and ran across a book called The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma by James Samuel Gordon.

It seemed to be in line with all the other suggested dietary programs and suggestions, but with much more specificity.

Stay away from Processed Foods

>Processed Flour breaks down walls of the wheat grain and creates an acellular ,stress-inducing, insulin-demanding, fat-depositing, nutritionally depleted, powdery white carbohydrate. Refined flour may also interfere with the leptin, a hormone made by our fat cells that tells the brain when we're full and it's time to stop eating

Non-Starchy Vegetables FTW

Steamed, Sauteed or Raw Non-Starchy veggies should compose 30-50 percent of your diet

Artichoke Celery Onions
Artichoke hearts Chayote Peapods
Asparagus Coleslaw Peppers
Baby corn Cucumber Radishes
Bamboo shoots Daikon Rutabaga
Beans Eggplant Salad greens
Bean sprouts Greens Sprouts
Beets Hearts of palm Squash
Brussels sprouts Jicama Sugar snap peas
Broccoli Kohlrabi Swiss chard
Cabbage Leeks Tomato
Carrots Mushrooms Turnips
Cauliflower Okra Water chestnuts

Starchy Vegetables

  • Don't overcook them, and give them time to cool down so you "get a more resistant (hard to digest) starch that nourishes your microbiome"
  • Stay away from friend starches if possible, but be sure to eat small portions slowly if you do,

Fruits

>Fruits contain a wide variety of phytonutrients that help reverse the oxidateve stress and inflammation that trauma provokes. I flavor berries and, in particular, blueberries, which are a superfood for the friendly bacteria in our microbiome.
>
>....
>
>Eat only small portions of dried fruit, in which the sugar is highly concentrated

Just say no to Grains

> Stress affects the small intestine in many ways. It can damage the villi β€” the tiny, fingerlike projections from the endothelial cells that line the small intestine β€” and interfere with the absorption of vital, stress-reducing vitamins and minerals.
>
> Stress can also loosen the tight junction s that connect endothelial cells. As these junctions widen, molecules of food substances that a healthy gut does not absorb pass through our now β€œleaky” gut and enter our bloodstream. These molecules, among them the glu

A Seasonal CSA Journey!

Hello all,

This year was my FIRST year signing up for a CSA in my community. I live in the Northeast USA. As the year has unfolded, I've been having fun documenting all the meals we have made with our locally grown goodies. The season just came to an end and I thought I'd share the meals we made throughout the season (June-end of October).

Most of the dishes have a recipe linked to them. If there is a recipe link missing, let me know and I can find it and edit the post.

Overall, it was a BLAST to have new ingredients to cook with this year. I enjoyed looking up these meals and cooking them. For the most part, these meals were a success. You can tell when we REALLY liked a dish because we cooked it a few weeks in a row or it shows up at some point again.

A few things to note:

  • We are a 2 family household so three meals usually gets us through the week as we eat leftovers in between.
  • I froze many of the soups for the winter.
  • I also got really into making sauerkraut and have quite a bit to get us through the winter.
  • I discovered the wonder of violife cheese, specifically the feta "cheese" and goodness was it a game changer and, more or less, an obsession throughout the summer. I've finally laid off at this point but we were going steady there for awhile! You'll see me mention it frequently as "feta cheese", that is what I am referencing.
  • I learned how to make my own pita this summer. Any time there is a recipe like tacos or gyros, the pita was all homemade. I followed the recipes of the Sustainably Vegan vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcEkrFXz1xk

I'd love to hear people's thoughts and additional recipe ideas, excited for next year already! Also, we ended with an abundance of turnips that I am skeptical of...any ideas?!!

CSA Meals 2020

Week 1:

  • Miso glazed turnips (sautΓ©ed) (this turned into a season FAVORITE as a side dish). https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/miso-glazed-turnips

  • Barley risotto with radish and swiss chard (it was okay...next time would just use arborio rice)

  • French lentil salad with kohlrabi (CSA), carrots, scallions, "feta" cheese. Dressing of olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper

    • This was delicious. Hope to make again during this CSA.
  • Soba noodle stir fry with boc choy, snap peas, zucchini

  • Strawberry cream popsicles

Week 2:

  • Fig/Fennel salad (with rice noodles, peanuts, radishes, mint
