anarchist pig farmer james c scott's health advice was, researchers discover healthy new vitamins and compounds every year, so in our ignorance, we should aim for a diet of variety. this book's philosophy was like the glass-half-empty version of that: researchers manufacture new disastrous untested chemicals every year, so in our ignorance, we should aim for total molecular control over our diets, limited to known-safe foods. 'total molecular control' is my anti-vax cousin's diet philosophy too, "just read the ingredients in a vaccine". ok...now what. the book's sections on obesity, diabetes, and depression were very republican, but even lab animals are more obese now than they were in the 70s/80s so something weird's going on.
hiked down to the border of occupied chickasaw, on the way back picked some greenbriar shoots & wild onion for a stir fry. also threw some mushrooms in there but i had previously harvested those from the produce store
Reminds me of last time I was out round Santa Barbara and I picked a whole mess of wild sage on a hike with my friend. Make a bunch of Pomme de Terre Dauphinois (like a gratin, potato, swiss cheese, half and half, sage all stacked up in layers in the oven til it's melted golden brown heaven) with that and it never tasted so good.
Been avoiding this thread for probably half a year because until recently I have not been working out or eating right. However, past couple of weeks really got into it. Doing solely bodyweight exercises and no cardio yet, will probably start running on the 11th when it becomes legal again. Sticking to squats, lunges, push-ups and planks. Feels really good to keep building on them. Would like to get into lifting when I can get into a gym, unsure how to start.
Been cooking a lot, eating a lot of chicken. Roast it first and eat your fill, keep the carcass in a tub in the fridge so it marinates a few days in all the juices, then strip it and break it up for making bouillon stock. Just finished the last of mine from the previous batch, it tastes incredible, like liquid gold, so flavorful and filling you could drink it on its own, though I've been adding curry rice and stripped chicken leftovers from the original roast to it.
Made my first attempt at baking bread to day and it didn't go off perfect but I am learning and will keep trying. Working out and Eating right is making me feel good. I feel good. Stayed up a little too late tonight but am tired and will be asleep soon.
My bad eating habits were going to kill me, and I've been getting better and better over lockdown. I am crossing my fingers that I don't fuck it up. I don't want to jinx myself.
apparently self-crusting quiche is something that already exists and i didn;t invent it while fucking around during coronantine
like, a frittata?
instead of using beaten eggs with milk i used buttermilk and added some flour to make a thin batter, and didn't make a crust. the edges crisped up into a sort of a crust and the cake itself was more solid than a quiche but it didn't really affect the texture

feeling a little peckish... might treat myself to a midnight grapefruit
last time i pecked an grapefruit i didnt feel so hot the next morning. mostly just felt shameful
Completely stopped drinking beer and now potato chips too, eating "clean." Working out and eating right for the day of each day feels darn good.
my gym opened monday but i really cant see myself going in there any time soon. got into it with my friend who started going this week to her bougie crossfit box. it does sound like theyre doing all they can to keep it clean and safe, but i dont see how its worth the risk when you can exercise at home or outside. maybe its not the same if you dont have someone screaming at you to do another 20 burpees?
Going to start calling working out "doing mass work."
if you work out the right muscles it can also be called "ass work"
edit: turns out it was his birthday, all is well. the squats were good. mao wins again
