Weeds taste like 1990's Strawberry Milk help by Rose Gray - Tue, 21 Mar 2017 21:01:57 EST ID:Kn7DAJmg No.151432 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I smoked some loud outside the trap (in bong fgt), and it tasted like strawberry milk. Such an outlandish claim might usually undermine my authority, but trust me my /nom/, this is no jest, no fairy tale, just a plainly odd story told in flowery prose. My weed holds the flavor of strawberries and milk, and there is no known remedy.

I remember when I used to store weed in the cellophane from Marlboro Smooth cigarettes, which gave them a distinct peppermint flavor.

Sold it as "Peppermint Patty". made mediocre cash.

Shitty Diet/Junk Food Addiction by Marc Forgione - Mon, 20 Mar 2017 20:01:46 EST ID:76vI5oTQ No.151420 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, I have a really shitty diet. I get big bags of chips almost every day and drink 4-5 cans of pop a day, plus chocolate and ice cream very frequently. It's also non uncommon for me to eat fast food for dinner, and I usually only make extremely processed frozen food like jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks. I feel like shit all the time, but it's really hard to break this habit.

I know a lot of it is psychological, but I am wondering if there are any types of healthy foods that can help curb cravings of junk food or that can replace them? I get altogether too much sugar and salt in my diet and need to start eating better but I want to give my brain the illusion that it's still getting the things it wants without further poisoning my body.

tldr I need to kick my terrible junk food habits, what kinds of foods can I eat that will help curb cravings or replace bad food?

OP start off by drinking ONLY water, fuck soda and juices (fruit juices are just as sugary as sodas). Be a man and chase your liquor with a sip of water.

As for foods: raw veggies, fruits, nuts and grains. A bowl of fruits gives your brain the sugar (fructose) it craves while the fiber fills up your belly.

Look into intermittent fasting, its when you limit your eating schedule to 12/10 hours a day. Never eat an hour before you sleep. All month my eating cycle had a 12 hour window (first meal at 8am last meal before 8pm). Today im starting a 10 hour cycle with 2 big meals and a small one in the middle.

Im eating a salad and a bowl of greens rn and my hunger is satiated.

Remember, eat for nutrition not for taste. only fatties eat for taste

those little clementine oranges. Still loaded with sugar but at least it's a real fruit.

Also tortilla chips and various salsa satisfy my crunchy/salty/nothings craving well and feel better than cheetos or something.

Also, an avocado, halved with some salt&balsamic, stir and eat with spoon or chips.

So the 2 things I will say are get into cooking and eat healthier snacks. Don't think of cooking as a chore, think of it as something fun. Put on a podcast or some of your favourite music, maybe a TV show you like, and get chopping. Cooking is awesome because it's a blend of science and art. Cooking a nice meal for yourself is extremely rewarding.

Once you know how to cook, you don't have to rely on instant, processed foods and takeaway. Look up some basic curry recipes, some pasta sauce recipes, learn how to make a soup. A lot of these dishes, especially soup, are very easy to make - in addition to being cheap, tasty and healthy.

For snacks cut out the fizzy drinks/soda COMPLETELY - that stuff is so bad for you, I feel a bit sick after drinking more than 250ml. I avoid it as much as possible, the only times I'd ever really have it is if I'm stoned and hungover and I get some greasy take-away food as a comfort cure, then a sugary drink can be nice to wash it down with but even then I'd still lean towards water. When you find yourself wanting a drink just drink water, your thirst will quench and you'll find yourself saying "Oh hey, I didn't need a fizzy drink after all. I was just thirsty".

Eat fruits instead of chocolate. I know you might feel some resistance to eating fruit, when I ate unhealthily I always thought food sounded nice but never really wanted to eat it. But when you just do it, when you just take a bite out of a nice juicy plum you'll find yourself really, really enjoying it. Eat nuts instead of chips/crisps! Way more healthy - try stick to roasted or unseasoned, but even if you eat salty ones you're at least getting the nutrients from nuts.

I mean you don't have to completely cut out all the bad crap, just think of it as a treat, and not your goddamn sustenance. Do you think our bodies were made to live off nothing sugar, salt and artificial preservatives/sweeteners? Think of how fucked your physical health will be when you're older.

I'll share with you a basic soup recipe - the great thing about soup is that it's very interchangeable, and you can make so many different types of tasty soups simply by switching the vegetable. Here - squash, carrot and sage soup.

Dice an onion and some garlic
Chop up about 3 big carrots and about 3 sticks of celery
Chop up some butternut squash into little cubes, put into a roasting dish and cover with oil, salt, pepper and plenty of sage. Toss those bitches around until well seasoned. Insert into an 200C pre-heated oven, for about 30 minutes. Take out when done.

Eat lots of fiber. Fills you up, less calories generally, and your asshole will thank you. I suggest learning to like salads, eating a handful of nuts a day, and switching to carbonated water like >>151425 suggested. Learning to enjoy cooking will help as well.

>intermittent fasting

i had no idea this was a thing. i've been unwittingly doing it for like half my life now, ever since i lost weight (went from 200lbs to 150), and despite my diet now being pretty unhealthy i haven't had a problem with my weight rebounding. i general only eat breakfast and lunch.

of course the irony is that i do this mostly because of my alcoholism (can't stand being full while drunk, and i drink errnight), so i might not be gaining weight but i'm sure my health is still awful. also i drink tons of diet soda.

oh well i have excellent health insurance.

I love almost all food, but the dealbreaker for me is banana. It's just too mushy and there is something about the banana aroma I find disagreeable. It's childish and almost contrivedly jovial. Like if one fruit (yes, yes, definitions) was gap toothed with an annoying doofus laugh it would be the banana.

For the people in this thread who dislike mushrooms because of their consistency: Try pan frying them in small batches in butter until they are crisp. Maybe even season with a bit of soy sauce. This is a nice entry level trick to get into mushrooms.

ha. same. the only time I eat fruit is on stims. berries, bananas, melon - they're great cause they're high in complex carbs which (I think) is good for when you're calorie starved and need some energy. and them being soft/high in water content means I can eat them despite the horrid dry mouth. yogurt's great for stim eating too.

Also, when picking out watermelons look for the brown scarring and yellow spots, those usually indicate they had time to ripen, and I believe the brown scars have to do with sugar content.

Pepperoni pizza with pineapple on top is delicious but it's one of those sketchy things to enjoy in private or with trusted friends since ordering it in public can get you dirty looks.

Try it, Vincent. Order a pepperoni & pineapple pizza, have it delivered, talk to the delivery driver through a mail slot and have them leave the pizza on your doorstep, wait for the coast to be clear, open the door, take the pizza, close the door, retreat to your bedroom, close the blinds, turn off the lights, light a candle or two, and dine in on that dank pepperoni and pineapple pizza, my friend.

would post this on /med/ but it's too slow there

I switched from eating a chocolate milk + cookies + energy bars + energy drink diet to a water + orange juice + spinach salad + corn + turkey & cheese sandwiches + tuna + apples + baked beans + tons of olive oil diet because it's cheaper. I never used to eat much at all, but now I'm eating 3 different meals a day and drinking water constantly

Also I cut back on my smoking and amphetamine abuse drastically and have been trying to move around a lot during the day because im terrified of deep vein thrombosis

i feel like im dying. I'm sweating a lot and im tired and i have diarrhea and dizziness and nausea. Am I going to die?

not to mention how easy it is to bake chicken. I have this recipe where I basically just slather a fried breast in mustard (which of course can be subsititued for egg yolks or whatever) and then cover it in breadcrumbs mixed with some seasonings, then bake for an hour. It's really easy and really delicious. Plus it's near impossible to burn chicken in the oven, it just may com e out a little dry.

i honestly havent heard that phrase used before. are you talking about when you make a "starter" by mixing yeast with just enough warmed milk/water to submerse it, with a few tablespoons of flour and a nip of sugar? in order to get the yeast activated and give it a head-start, and to also check whether your fresh yes (or otherwise) is, in actual fact, still fresh and active?

because if so, it smells amazing and speeds up the breadmaking process and its a nice way to get your yeast going and to check whether it still "works", but other than that...it isnt exactly needed.

a "brew day"? do you work in some sort of distillery? if you have access to fresh yeast or yeast-like substance that sounds amazing. As an enthused baker id like to experiment with this sort of thing. Even fresh yeast is hard to acquire around here and i usually need to sweet-talk the workers in the bakery section at a nearby supermarket...which has varying success since they arent really supposed to

always try to add "not enough" water when youre initially mixing it into the flour just before kneading, you can always add a bit more moisture and some viscosity by cracking an egg or some butter into the thing. My favorite and most obedient blend of flour to work with is about 4/5 strong white and 1/5 rye

You may know it by the name "poolish". There's another name for it too that's made drier. Similar to a sourdough starter but it's not sour and usually done one day in advance. There's a guy making no knead bread.on YouTube that makes it look great and easy. Makes the dough the night before with little yeast, never punches it down just reforms it for the secondary proof

I think I just need practice. To contribute to the thread, I'd say learn pizza dough first. It's super forgiving and gives you the opportunity to get a feel for dough

Nah, I just homebrew a lot of beer. You may have seen me post my brewing rig on here before. My roommate does work at a microbrewery though, so fresh yeast is always an option.

Speaking if which, instead of asking bakers for yeast, find a local microbrewery and ask them. Brewers almost always have huge amounts of slurry around that they'll more than likely be happy to just give you. You might even be able to get them to top-crop some fresh from the fermenter.

thisll have to count, i mean it is bread dough of a sort...very soft plain flour with minimal kneading, and cream cheese and butter to give it some tenderness. Whipped up some frangipane, froze and then grated it so it wouldnt lose its shape right away, and then filled the thing up, plaited it and baked.

kinda meant to scatter more roast almond over it before icing, but i forgot

Eating raw horsemeat in the form of Steak Tartar is also common here. It tastes better than the beef variant, smoother, richer.

That's wrong. Pork tapeworms and trichonosis are th most common and neither are from eating meat.

I had raw horse when I lived in Japan. I've attached the pic I took. It was a course at a fancy hotel my company took us to for a retreat/team-building thing. I remember it being pretty good. I also had whale twice in Japan--once raw and minced in sushi form, once fried like kara-age.

What does whale taste like? The aroma, texture etc.
Is it like fish since it lives in the sea? Or is it like pork since it's a fat mammal?

It was red, similar to land-based red meat, which I wasn't expecting but which makes sense I guess since whales are mammals.
