Re: Get Up 'n Go! recipe

:idea: Also serve with blood oranges, sliced into wedges
so you can bite into the pith for more nutrition.
(better serving regardless of accompaniment) ;)

:scratch: "Whatsa 'bloody orange'?" No, "blood orange" ...
but "bloody blood orange" would be precise! :roll:

:sunny: A diabetes discovery journey ...

Re: Get Up 'n Go! recipe

:idea: Breakfast is a good time for healthy carbs since diabetics usually take medicine (oral or injection)
which begins sweeping blood sugar from blood circulation when blood sugar is slowly being created
with breakfast digestion. A "cart before the horse" (temporary depletion of blood sugar) condition
seems possible and explains low energy until breakfast carbs are flowing ... IMO. :roll:

:bana: Proposed new term from the proposed "Quick Bites Nutrition Guide",
Chapter ?, The Psychology of Dieting: "D'Health Food" (pronounced "dealth or delth").

"D'Health Food" is a personal and arbitrary term referring to a food
that is perceived as Detrimental to your Health. :roll:

For example, an overweight diabetic might label chocolate cake
as his "D'Health Food", labeling psychology that causes resistance
to consuming so much of this food. :finger:

Caveat: Parental guidance recommended for children who create terms:
"Mom :!: You know that spinach is my Number One D'Health Food!" :roll:

Hi Rod.

I thought that your White Beans 'n Tomato Soup would be ideal for Supper tonight...but don't you know I have everything but a can of tomato soup. I'm not sure Cream of Mushroom would have the same good effect. So back to the drawing board.
Sounds to be a good recipe, anyway. Thanks.

:bana: It's easy to believe there's unseen culinary assistance ...
when an impromptu recipe is good with first test! Who can tell?!
I wanted to create an easy soup that was nourishing comfort food
for the days ahead when "self-quarantine" was popular mantra. ;)

:idea: This soup is a great foundation for visiting veggies
like asparagus, brussel sprouts, green beans! It welcomes
a side of whole grain bread, cornbread, quinoa, or rice. :roll

Also, shredded cheese or nutritional yeast, but I digress!
Headin' to the store for more of the non-perishables.

"the researchers found that those who ate more than half a tablespoon per day of olive oil had a 15 per cent lower risk
of having any kind of cardiovascular disease."

"Most experts agree olive oil - especially extra virgin - is good for you. It contains a fatty acid called oleic acid
which reduces inflammation. (but) Higher consumption of olive oil did not show an impact on stroke risk." ;)

:scratch: This article mentions both "half a tablespoon" and "half a teaspoon".
Best guess: "Half a tablespoon" is the correct reference ...
and no more per day because of the calories. :o

I'm surprised that this wasn't more intuitive ...

:idea: If you're going to spread avocado on toast, just freeze extras uncut,
then thaw overnight in refrigerator- softer texture occurs but no browning
... and great for spreading on toast! :roll

For guacamole, most of the mashing is done! 8)

Famous Fanny's Flu Soup

Post by Amigoo » Tue Mar 10, 2020 10:04 pm

Famous Fanny's Flu Soup :roll:

:scratch: "Who is Famous Fanny?"
You are! if your soup is really good. ;)

:roll Ingredients:

1/4 cup virgin olive oil
3 cups chopped celery
3 cups chopped carrots
3 cups chopped sweet onions
1/2 med. green cabbage, chopped
1/3 cup sliced garlic cloves
1/2 cup diced parsley tops
15oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
2 tbsp dried parsley
3/4 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp salt
lotsa water

:arrow: Directions:

In a 3 quart stew pot, sauté celery, carrots, and onions
in olive oil until al dente texture.

Add chopped cabbage, then fill with water to top of cabbage.
Bring to a vigorous simmer and cook 25 min.

Add remaining ingredients, stir well to combine,
then simmer 30 min. (45 min. for softer textures).

:idea: Tips: Keep pot filled with water (or broth); if desired,
add more olive oil when cooked; try with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar.
Refrigerate extra, then spoon over canned beans (or cooked meat,
fish, fowl) when reheating in the microwave.

:scratch: It's unknown whether Fanny had the flu and created this soup
or Fanny created this nourishing soup for friends who had the flu.
Previously, Fanny's Sweet Buns always won the Blue Ribbons. :roll:

Re: Famous Fanny's Flu Soup :roll:

:idea: Actually, this creates veggie stew more than soup,
so add more water (or broth) during final simmer
(and use two pots if necessary). ;)

Fanny said that this soup feeds the neighborhood
... when more water is added after each serving
(soup seems better at front of serving line). :roll:

Faux Poached Eggs

Post by Amigoo » Sat Mar 14, 2020 3:40 pm

Faux Poached Eggs (not necessarily four) ;)

Lightly butter unheated non-stick frying pan with glass lid (or any lid),
carefully crack eggs into pan, cover pan and place on pre-heated burner.

Simmer until egg whites begin to cook, then add 2 tbsp water,
drizzled along the inside of the pan. Recover and finish cooking.

Note: New non-stick pans may not require butter.

Simmer 1 cup rinsed quinoa in 1 2/3 cups water, then
stir in 1 cup diced onions before cooking completes.
2 tbsp virgin olive oil + S & P is nice. ;)

Serve with cherry tomatoes and parsley sprigs ...
and cheese if you please. :roll

Brotchán Foltchep - Versatile, comfort food!
Re: https://www.acfchefs.org/ACFSource/Recipes/?id=268

:idea: Easily accompanied by other cooked veggies when served -
also cheese, meats, fish, whatever. "Garnish with minced parsley."

Microwaving the leeks to al dente texture first
might reduce the cooking time to 25 min.
(since rolled oats cook faster). ;)
