How to De-Intimidate Your Cooking

How to De-Intimidate Your Cooking

“I followed the recipe exactly, and it still didn’t come out right?” Sound familiar? It sounds familiar to me too! (The most embarrassing thing — and it happens — is when I’m referring to one of my own recipes, smh.) You spend money on ingredients, and time and energy putting them together. At the same time, you’re relying on everything to work out so you can satisfy hungry bellies — it is intimidating to dive into all these things with the fear looming over you that things won’t come out right! How do you get past that fear, and get into the kitchen? Or, if you’re okay in the kitchen but you’re in a rut, how do you grow past your basic game? Think of a professional cello player. Hand her a book of piano pieces. She’ll look at the music, understand it, and likely she’ll even be able to hear it in her head as she reads it. Now, ask her to sit at a piano and play — what do you think will happen? Will she be a brilliant pianist, taking the language she knows so well and speaking it beautifully through a whole new instrument? Probably not! The...

Cannabis, Cancer and The Importance of A Plant-based Alkaline Diet

Cannabis, Cancer and The Importance of A Plant-based Alkaline Diet

Cancer-fighting and immune-boosting power of different-hued foods Research continues to show that the plant Cannabis sativa L. plays an important role in different physiological and pathological processes. In cancer patients, cannabis has been shown to alleviate pain, relieve nausea, and stimulate the appetite. In addition, numerous cell culture and animal studies showed anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids in various cancer types. There are countless studies you can research to understand the heaps of benefits of taking cannabis but I am also here to tell you why you should be considering your diet if you are taking high doses of cannabis especially for cancer or any other medical treatment. What is an alkaline diet? What does being alkaline mean? The role of an alkaline diet has been studied for decades. A French biologist, Claude Bernard, studied the effects of how changing from a plant-based diet to a carnivore diet caused pH levels in rabbits to go from more alkaline to more acidic. Simply put, pH is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline something is. The pH scale measures on a basis from 0–14 with 0 being highly acidic and 7–14 falling between neutral and alkaline. Studies continue to show that acidic environments...

BreastMade Cookies

It all started with Bunny and her plan to bake cookies for me as a surprise treat on the first morning in our Italian hideaway. As I walked into the light-flooded kitchen, still trying to wake up from that deeply satisfying sleep after a busy night, I saw her silhouette against the wide open kitchen window, framed by curtains catching the breeze. Her arms were full as she was trying and failing to quietly gather all her cookie baking supplies without waking me up. Teddy! The disappointment of the surprise not playing out as intended was soon replaced by the widest smile, and as I helped free her hands, by a hug as tight and perfect as a hug from a naked, sun soaked creature first thing in the morning can be. Bunny decided to include me in the cookie baking process, and I did, gladly. My hands often wandered places, as she was trying to pedantically measure the ingredients. She’d tell me off for distracting her only to grab my hands and pull me into an embrace seconds later. Ready to knead. The flour, sugar and butter were just about starting to take shape under her hard working hands when...

Responses Pregnant women are at a much higher risk of contracting coronavirus than others. Because at this time, the body’s immune system is low. For this, they need extra care, proper nutrition. �‰ Fresh and colorful vegetables should be included in the daily diet. �‰ Try to eat fruit every day. In this case, give priority to local vitamin C-rich fruits such as lemons, oranges, guavas, etc. �‰ Put wheat flour, red rice, maize in the diet. �‰ Every day, one egg, 2–3 pieces of fish, the chicken should be eating. �‰ Eat protein-rich foods. That will increase the immunity as well as, the fetus will grow properly. ☺️☺️ Written by Written by Discover Medium Welcome to a place where words matter.

Sensual Eating

Sensual Eating

Reminder to self: Be sensual about food, not utilitarian Photo by Trang Doan from Pexels In this festival time, food has definitely been “bae”. Food lover naturally, it gets even enhanced while in holidays.. Especially when in France with my most cherished ones. Food gather and unites us. God, food, music and dance being pillars elements in my family. Reading these lines by Patricia Wells brought me back to the gastronomic essentials. Be ritualistic about preparing, serving and eating your food. Remember that food and ritual connect you to the world. Be sensual about food, not utilitarian. Eat modest portions of excellent food, never giant portions of anything. Eat well or not at all. Indulge in simple pleasures. Simplicity, quality, excellence win in gastronomy as well :) I trust you have had a nice summer (summer is almost over on this part of the planet: Norway). Keep on enjoying if you still have the sunshine and heat on your side. Grateful for the time you took to read these lines. Let me know your thoughts/ideas in comment section : What is food to you? How do you eat? Until next time, take gorgeous care of you. What is Home? Out of...

Moving To Skills Partnerships Will Make Small Scale Agriculture A Viable New Age Career

Moving To Skills Partnerships Will Make Small Scale Agriculture A Viable New Age Career

Urban agriculture is the future of farming for high value crops like vegetables. However, urban farms cant simply be scaled down versions of conventional operations dropped into an urban environment. It simply wont work. Two main concepts, along with the changes in thinking they bring, will make urban agriculture viable. TOPICS Adopting Two Concepts Will Make Urban Agriculture ViableBreaking Down Agriculture Into Four Main RolesMoving From All-in-one Agricultural Business Units To Role Based Farming PartnershipsWest Mansfield Grower’s Co-op (Example Co-op) The first concept is a move away from all-in-one production operations (where one farmer owns the land, supplies the infrastructure and inputs, tends the plants in the growing period, and harvests the produce for market) to a skills partnership system where each of these roles are met on the farm by multiple individuals working as specialists. The second key change is to remove a reliance on mega farms and build out farming networks of smaller operations to spread the ownership and management across more small producers and farms. The aim is to create opportunities for partnership in a diverse range of production operations and for specialist providers to have a portfolio of farms they partner with to skills share. This incentives...

Shrimp

Ok, so starting a publication called “Almost A Vegan” with a post about shrimp probably seems a little odd. It only seems odd to those who do not know me well enough to know that my favorite foods, before recent life changes, included spaghetti, chocolate and shrimp. Not necessarily in that order, usually ordered all at the same time at Lombardi’s — my favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta. Fried shrimp, baked shrimp, boiled shrimp seasoned with Zatarain’s Shrimp and Crab Boil…dang, what was I talking about again? Oh yeah, I remember now. Up until about four weeks ago, I was eating South Louisiana’s version of a normal, balanced diet. This included beans and white rice with sausage (usually beef or turkey, but sometimes mixed with pork which I’d just pick out of my plate and eat around), smothered okra with chicken, sausage and shrimp, jambalaya, gumbo, and lots of seafood. Sometimes I’d manage to throw a salad in there that didn’t include potatoes and mayonnaise. Large glasses of sweet tea, knowing I shouldn’t have been drinking the stuff with a diagnosis of tachycardia. Basically, I am 200 pounds for a reason. I never denied that, and never cried about needing to...
