whats your go to snack?

I've been munching on pub mix lately, since i've been cutting down on salty snacks and usually snack on dried fruit (non-candied kind) and used to get cheez-its.

i like snacks, needing new ideas (preferably healthy one's ain't gonna discriminate on snacks; snack general).

I've been trying to branch out because I've never really been in a city that has good ethnic food until recently. The most we had growing up was a shitty chinese food place.
I recently tried some Thai and loved it. I also had some real Italian food and didn't like it nearly as much as Olive Garden Italian (which is probably heresy to say). Ethiopian food has always looked delicious so maybe I should see if I can find a place around here.

What's are some that you like?

That shit is really hot. I grabbed one when I was at H Mart and wasn't expecting it to be so spicy. I looked at the back when I got home and realized it's labeled as almost 10k scoville heat units. I required a bit of milk to get through it. It was alright but the other couple of ramens that I got there had better flavor.

First foray into Korean food was dank. Went with some spicy korean beef on white rice (can't see the rice because of white bowl and crappy phone). Between the beef and rice is some spicy sauteed onion and bell pepper. This came out amazing, pretty much restaurant quality shit. Perfect spicy level where it's just enough to get you to sweat a bit by the end. Those thai chilis are dope, great flavor and heat level.

Second foray into Korean food.

Made a spicy Korean chicken stew (very hot, take out heat scale 4.5/5) and some red pepper sauce green beans over white rice. About 3/4 of the way through the bowl I had to give in and throw some white rice in there to make it a bit easier to finish.

I know, I was making fun of it because it's stupid fear mongering. What do you think the percentage is like for purely offal products? Does that make you want to eat offal less than you already did?
Did you know that 99.99% of meat products contain blood?
Did you know that all the air you breathe is full of molecules that other people have farted out?
Did you know that 100% of meat products contain dead animal's corpses?
It's all harmless or in such tiny quantities that it's irrelevant and you're just being a prissy little girl about it because you're so far removed from the reality of where your food actually comes from that you can't stand to think about it.

Also though the US food regs allow you to just chuck chlorine at things instead of applying hygiene standards like the rest of the civilised world so I imagine that it's considerably more shitty.

You don't want it to start smoking ofc, but you have to do that to decarboxylate it, basically activate the THC. Naturally this happens on its own when you smoke it, but worst case scenario if you don't heat it enough before making food with it is that you won't get high.

Baking is unnecessary. The heat from the crockpot will decarb it. Just throw your weed in a pot with some water and some butter and simmer it for 1-10 hours on medium temp stirring occasionally. It helps to chop it up as much as possible beforehand. The water will help to break down the plant matter and absorb the chlorophyll. The longer you leave it on for the better it will come out, but there are diminishing returns after a couple hours. Strain out the solids when it's still hot and then put it in the fridge. The butter will rise to the top and float on top of the water and you take that out and throw the rest away.

As mentioned, baking it is unescessary, as melting it with the butter decarboxylates it well enough.

Any cake, biscuit or cookie batter mix can be used with weed as long as something is in there to mask the taste a bit (like chocolate) and if it uses butter. Shit's recipe is a pretty good guideline.

If you don't have much time, you don't have to wait until the cannabutter is solid. Just make sure it's lukewarm (body temperature), so you don't kill any yeast in the cake mix.
Water is also optional for cannabutter. It just makes sure it's easier to take out when solid.

Clarified cannabutter can be made with a double boiler setup... the goal of this process is to remove the water from the butter. However, that process works best with hasish, as it melts like chocolate, just at a higher temperature.
You may need to bake the weed first though.
If you want a more intense butter taste in your cakes and cookies, go for clarified butter.

clarified cannabutter can also be used to make sauces for dishes. Just make sure that the sauce has a lot of taste on its own... Sauce Hollandaise and similar recipes will not turn out good, as they don't have enough taste on their own.

As a man with access to a large amount of dabs, is there a way to cook with concentrate?

I tried a recipe I read online where you cook down the concentrate at the lowest your oven can until it stops bubbling. Then you can add it to coconut oil and cook using the oil with dabs mixed in.

Tried it with 2 grams of dabs and got nothing from the cookies I made. Any tips?

Hello /nom/,

In this day and age we have more information available to us regarding nutrition, food quality/safety, and so forth. And we are all doing what we can to try to have a healthy diet, with other life-factors considered of course. I am curious what are some dietary strategies you guys employ, and maybe discuss the motivations for them.

I have a few things I am playing around with to see how it works for me or doesn't:

>no soda
>no red meat (except special/rare occasions, like a friend makes a special dish or you get a chance to eat elk or something)
>every time you eat food, consider the time/effort it would take to harvest/prepare that food. for each day/meal, do not exceed what you yourself would reasonably be able to harvest/prepare

so far these focus areas have helped me to lose some weight and start eating more nutritious meals. what do you guys do?

Alright so I think I'm going to try and tackle this constructively. Let's first start by asking why it's true that:
>measuring the quantity of energy you consume and expend is a dumb useless method
The problem with breaking down all foods into a single category (such as 'energy') and then focusing on intake/output measurements is that it disregards variation in nutritive quality and nutrient diversity (this should be obvious, no?). The human body has fairly effective checks in place that regulate food intake (and food variety too), via hunger and taste (admittedly taste checks have been partially circumvented by the culinary arts, and by dramatic changes during the 20th Century in food availability, but anyway-), however such checks don't exist when it comes to determining the nutritive value of food. Or rather, the checks that do exist are no longer effective.

Given that evolutionary processes naturally lag millennia behind reality (that is to say that we're all adapted to survive in the Stone Age, not the present), it should be no surprise that our palates are also ill-equipped for the modern world. While our preferences towards fatty, salty, and high-carbohydrate foods may have been vital for surviving the food-scarcity of antiquity, in our food-saturated 21st Century, they mostly serve to propagate obesity, heart disease, and cancer. So here's the problem with blindly counting calories simply put: a slender 1000-calorie diet of cereal, milk, and coffee cakes is far more harmful than a large 3000-calorie plant-based diet.

>then what do you recommend?

I follow the recommendations of my close friend, drinking pal, and health scientist, who's currently at the tail-end of his third degree, a Master's in health science. We've been studying nutrition together for the last decade (just short of a decade really), but he went much further with it, so I tend to defer to his expertise. He rarely bothers with sharing this sort of information with people because, frankly, people often feel threatened when they're told that something they enjoy consuming (and believe is healthy) is unhealthy, and the result is usually defensive behavior and aggression. I'll be truncating the information for the sake of brevity, leaving out things that I assume most people know. Also, it's worth pointing out that he would tell you to cut out these items, while I'm using the word "reduce."

>Reduce consumption of meat and dairy
The consumption of meat and dairy causes widespread chronic inflammation (which leads to chronic disease), and an increased risk of developing multiple forms of cancer, and an exponentially increased bioaccumulation of thousands of toxins.
>Reduce consumption of processed foods, especially processed sugars
I assume you all know this one.

Good long post. And you're right but your entire argument is based on the assumption:
>calorie counting is mutually exclusive with any other form of nutritional control
And it's an assumption which falls into pieces in a lot of case.

You are right in that if someone purely just reduces calories there is a risk they will just eat less of the good stuff, or that they may only eat shit. However I found when I reduced calories that I got more satisfaction from my budget by eating better. It is extremely easy to run a 1000 calorie deficit and eat all the macro and micronutrients you want and still fit a couple of treats in (though these ended up being high cocoa dark chocolate in my case so it was hardly unhealthy).

People can fuck up absolutely any diet if you make similar assumptions though. Every other diet fails if you increase your calorific intake and 5000 calories per day of healthy food, in a narrow window will still make anyone who isn't a professional athlete morbidly obese pretty fast.

You say
>I assume you know this one
But your entire critique of calorie counting depends on those not being known by the calorie counter. All the healthy things you described don't guarantee weight loss, they might do but they might not. You're just off on your own little diatribe at a tangent to your original point. You can do those and calorie count and hey, they'll all work. Bam. Your dietician skills are strong but you shouldn't make a career out of it because you basically have a hammer and are currently trying to nail some paint to the wall. You see a protein deficiency and you are suggesting better hydration. You can see someone who needs a portable work from home system that can browse the internet and replicate thin client functionality and have advised they grab an alienware, you can see a flat tyre and are replacing their exhaust (probably a real mechanic thing actually) they are trapped in a car, it is not in fire you are getting the high pressure hose you are reading a post about losing weight and giving great advice on avoiding toxins and cancer.

wow what a revelation, you mean calories isn't all there is to nutrition? fuck's sakes dude you are nitpicking so hard, fervently clawing for anything possible to refute and smugly sound like an expert. no one ever said "just count calories to be healthy", they said "consuming less calories than you expend will result in net weight loss" which is pure fact. are there other factors to consider regarding nutrients? yeah no shit sherlock but no one even brought that up. fuck off smuglord, go blow your genius guru friend with all the secret nutritional wisdom

nah nigga you're missing the point entirely, and also it isn't pure fact- it's incorrect, and an assumption rooted in a simplistic understanding of health science, and now I'm being a dick which isn't helping the discussion, so I apologize mate, but I'm still gonna explain why you're wrong. Counting calories usually has a positive effect on weight loss, but ultimately that effect is minimal and largely determined by what calories are being consumed. Mostly, calorie counting serves to distract people from getting too focused on what they eat (because that would actually have a significant effect on weight and is more realistic than staving off hunger indefinitely). Simply put, caloric intake is insignificant compared to what is being eaten (I'll get to them not being mutually exclusive in a minute). In some cases, despite your assertions, consuming less calories can actually increase weight gain. I know that's hard to believe, so I'll add an example: consuming diet-coke instead of coke allows you to cut back substantially on calories, but the hidden cost of consuming high levels of phenylalanine is decreased thyroid function, and thus decreasing metabolic rate, or one's capacity to burn calories, factors that might be more widely considered if calorie counting weren't pushed so much culturally.

>you mean calories isn't all there is to nutrition?
Act counter-smug if you'd like, but if it weren't for my egotistical contrarianism, this topic would still be masturbating the idea of counting calories without ever mentioning the notion of scrutinizing where the counted calories are coming from. I know that the absence of such discussion isn't because the folks here never thought about the value considering what they eat- that was a hostile assumption on your part. Rather, it's because nobody is really sure what is healthy or not for the most part, and we're fed a pyramid of bullshit and misinformation from a government controlled by big agriculture aimed at keeping us confused and sheepish.
