Ok, for those who have never tried soybeans. I just had some, not my first time won't be the last. Actually been eatin' 'em for yrs.

Here's my simple recipe. Start with shelled frozen soybeans, in pot of water add powdered crab boil, bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Let sit for 10-12 minutes to soak up flavor.

Enjoy!!!

High in protein, tastes good, and a good pick you up. I keep some with me in the truck, ready to go.

Wife loves them, so do the three fur children!

Crab boil will make an old shoe taste good

Went to my nephew's 24th birthday party today. He and his Dad both play music and they both have bands so we had quite an entourage of musicians there.

My brother n law's band plays older stuff like mustang sally, eric clapton songs, my nephew's gang plays more contemporary rock type music, so between the two gangs there was music to be played, it was a lot of fun.

But wait, there's more...


How about 160 lbs of crawfish!!!

They were very good and so was I on my new healthy eating thing. I ate a bunch of swamp bugs, but drank water, and no cake or other junk. Tonite I had a salad, and a couple of healthy bars.

No such thing as a veggie philly steak. Call it whatever you want, but not a philly steak. Thems fighting words around here! Tony Lukes for a great steak sandwich here in Philly area.

Hey,

Like most of us 'of a certain age'   lol  I've been fighting a constant battle w/eating more veggies and fruit. I like the taste all right but all the prep is where it falls down a lot for me. Also eating enuf of it. However have developed a few tricks.

The blender is my friend. I find in the AM I am choking back only a few pieces of fruit eating out of hand but if I blenderize it a whole bowlful slides down w/a smile. Don't add anything to it but you sure can.

I like pasta too so when I make red sauce I also blenderize a lot of diff fresh veggies into it.

Read lots of bad press about soy and the estrogen mimicing constituant. Also soy, corn, canola, peanuts are all so heavily GM and pretty well can't buy non-GM so switched to olive oil from the EU members as they now don't allow GM but are being pushed into it so that source will only last for so long. If buy in big cans is quite a bit better deal. Works well, even make popcorn w/it.

Grow own garden stuff, eat lots of honey instead of white sugar, and BTW that coconut juice is really tasty and thirst quenching and if you go to a asian market the prices are a little better. Also asian markets seem good for snack food that is different than what we are used to but I think a little better ingredients and processing in some, prob. not all cases.

Now have own eggs and soon chicken as made the mistake of walking into a chicken 'battery' once and put me off store bought as well as the residual antibiotic and dog knows what else. Seems milk and it's products also suffer from same probs. w/injecting cows w/all manner of stuff I wouldn't put into my mouth. But still make milk kefir from store milk and try to sooth myself w/the fact Canadian farmers aren't into hormones for products QUITE AS MUCH as our friends down south but in reality not so diff.

Still can't abide 'brown' things like bread, rice, whole wheat pasta. Tried but ya can't like everything    lol   and other than rice and pasta I don't eat very much bread.

Blessed by growing up in a household that ate everything so didn't develop any 'hang ups' as a kid. We ate everything from chicken feet to organ meats and love them all to this day.

And that's my two cents worth, or these days w/inflation that would be my quarter's worth    lol

As an aside, went to farmers market in Saskatoon (Bigger city we have here) and got $5/doz for eggs no problems. See the sign I made for them below

cheers

we had a lot of local teams in Louisiana once we had i believe 3 ECHL teams at one time throught out the state
I started following the game when I was in the army I spent alot of time up in the frozen Nawth and was introduced to the game while there. when I came back south  I started following our local team and started to become a fan I had season tickets for a five years until the team folded. how Phiadelphia? I dated a girl who was a fan of the FLYERS she was from Philly. But, it got to where I liked the Flyers more than her so she's gone but i'm still a die hard fan

Mudbugs are good for you!
geez, JP, I need to come visit!.. I can tear up some bugs! I'll suck the heads till they whistle through the eye sockets!!
 I used to bartend for this Cajun restaurant years ago..Kinda kept my own hours and got to drink on the job..There were sand volleyball courts, horseshoes, Bungey jumping on occasion....It was the HOTTEST place going in Wichita Falls!
Anyways, when the bugs would come in I was always called in to do the boiling! Its all in the spices!... Zatarans , in my opinion is the best! I'll add extra salt, cayenne, and the liquid Zatarans too....You know, if the juices arent running down your arms and into your lap, youre not eating crawdads, Right?
Ok,...I gotta go...janelle says suppers ready and the Redsox are on..Rice and chicken tonite...Franks hot sauce will be going on the rice!

Sorry, Janemma....I havent got around to blogging on my bees yet tonite...Maybe after the game!

john

 Thems fighting words around here!


Sorry Konasdad, I am a lover not a fighter, and the sandwhich was delicioso!

Okay so I will change the recipe name, I will call it  Sharon's 'Silly Philly Un-Cheese Un-Steak Vegan Sandwich"...here it is:

1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 yellow bell pepper sliced 1/4 inch strips.
Saute in 2T of coconut oil for about 5 minutes or so
Add:
1/2 red onion sliced thinly
Saute for another 5 mins...
Add:
4.5 ounces of sliced mushrooms ( fresh )
Saute for around 5 mins
Add:
2 cloves minced garlic...watch so the garlic doesn't burn and stir for 2 mins of so...
Place in a bowl and cover, this allows a bit of steaming
In the same pan, add 2 T of water to release the bits of yummies from the pan and gently cook 12 pieces of vegetarian "bacon" I use "Morningstar Farms" brand.
Cook inpan for 2 minutes on each side, add water 1 T at a time so the bacon doesn't crisp up.
The recipe calls for rolls but I used Eziekiel Brand buns.
Open the roll and place the veggies on the buns, place the bacon on the veggies, place 2 slices of either vegan cheese or cheese on the "bacon", and there you go!  I also added sliced avocado to the top of the heap...My hubby loved it and devoured it right down!

Water and juice are about the only things iv ever liked to drink. I gave up hydroginated oil a couple years ago and latly iv been trying to aviod high fructose corn syrup. my diet is far from healthy though. I cant think of any veggies I like aside from corn and peas. Any other veggie has to be pureed and incorperated into a suace. I should probably cut back on my microwave meals too. >.<

heh - I think Cindi has that last bit ~> ©   Wink

Whew, where to begin.... I guess the search for a proper diet is a lot like the search for truth, a very personal journey.  We each need to learn and decide for ourselves.  That being said I would submit there's a lot of myths around what is healthy and what is not.  I think there is a proper consensus that processed foods are bad, refined sugars, etc.,.  One myth example is there was a big propaganda campaign against coconut oil which, when raw, is one of the healthiest things - as are most fats really.  Fats = energy when in their raw, pure form.  Cook the finest olive oil though and it will become indigestible and clog you up.

Soy being healthy is another myth.  As is vegetarianism

I tried a lot of things with various diets (soy and vegan included).  I found my best successes started with getting rid of the processed foods, refined sugars and especially grains.  Grains are just starches that turn into sugars when digested.  From there I went to a 100% raw, enzyme-centric, paleolithic diet.  Only raw, organic foods in their natural form.  Meats & dairy from animals that are either wild game or live as naturally as possible (e.g. grass-fed bison, raw goat milk from a local farm, etc.,) - not from "the Meatrix", sprouted nuts (nuts have enzyme inhibitors), probiotics (fermented, cultured foods like yogurt, kefir, kombucha, etc.,), fresh veggie juices (all the vitamins w/o the indigestible cellulose "fiber"), loads of raw fats (raw cheese & butter, coconut, etc.,).  The only legumes I eat are some cacao (raw) in desserts.   Bean protein is not for me.

I haven't eaten anything cooked in 5 years now and, more than just dropping to my high-school weight, I'm really thriving.  40 years old and in the best health since being an adolescent!  lol

I'll leave it there but could share my "raw food manifesto" if you're not sufficiently annoyed w/me yet.  Lips Sealed

Best of health to you!!

Cheers,
Dane

I agree with the caveat that pure, white and so-called deadly sugar is far better for you than any of the artificial sweeteners on the market.  Stevia is an interesting substitute, but some can't get by the somewhat bitter undertones.

  Olive oil isn't going to clog you up anywhere near as bad as any partially hydrogenated oil.  I have never heard of cooking olive oil 'clogging you up'.  Everything in moderation, and pick the proper oil for the proper purpose, while making sure it's pure.

Quote
Soy being healthy is another myth.


Again I agree.  I blame soy for causing my thyroid problems.

Quote
As is vegetarianism.



Oooh, that one I ain't touchin!  evil

Everything in moderation - and as close to real food as you can get.  As Michael Pollan said, "Eat Food.  Not Too Much.  Mostly Plants."  I think he's got it nailed.

Grains are not unhealthy for some, but they must be whole grains. The glycemic factor in whole grains is low compared to processed grains, as it takes the body longer to digest, therefore using more energy and increasing the metabolic rate.

Not all grains are created equal.  Research kamut, spelt, quinoa, etc...

Some people thrive better on meat protein, some on no meat protein, etc...There are various metabolic types to consider.

Age is also a factor, as our bodies grow older, absorption can become diminished.  It is prudent to include pro-biotics and or fermented food to the diet.

Want to loose weight?  Eat MORE, and more often...keep the digestive fires burning with healthy snacks...

Foods are not the enemy, it is how "we" farm and process them that can bring demise.  A friend of mine said if you go to the grocery store, shop around the perimeter of the store...LOL...

Also, google "estrogen dominance" and  "metabolic syndrome x" There is an epidemic of this in our country...check it out...

Gentleman, do you have a pot belly?  Is your cholesterol high, triglycerides high, is your blood pressure elevating?  Check out "metabolic syndrome x" ( Ladies too )...

Hi Ann,

Regarding which is worse, refined sugar or nutra sweet, cooked olive oil vs hydrogenated - you're correct of course but, the lesser of two evils is still evil eh?  And this isn't politics.. there are 100% healthy choices available.  grin

Any cooked oil will have it's enzymes destroyed and, therefore, not be completely digestible. 

Quote
There are two main problems with this enzyme destruction. First, our bodies cannot produce enzymes in the perfect mix to metabolize our food as completely as the food enzymes nature creates. This results in partially digested fats, proteins and starches that will clog up our body's intestinal tract and arteries. The Eskimos are a remarkable example of this. Eskimo means, "one who eats raw." While living for centuries on a diet that consisted primarily of whale or seal blubber, Eskimos developed no arterial sclerosis. They had almost no heart disease or stroke, and no high blood pressure. Established nutritional doctrine would predict a high incidence of these ailments, but even raw blubber will digest itself completely if it is not cooked and its enzymes are not destroyed.

It's my opinion that if we were meant to eat mostly plants we'd have four stomachs and chew a cud.  Besides water, plants have a lot of cellulose, which is very difficult to digest even for ruminants.  (Humans are unable to digest cellulose).
