:sunflower: Quick synthesis of culinary research ...

:study: Re: https://www.warmoven.in/blog/who-invented-cake.html
"Cake originated in ancient Egypt as round, flat, unleavened breads cooked on a hot stone."

:study: Re: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frying_pan
"Copper frying pans were used in ancient Mesopotamia."

:study: Re: https://www.bettycrocker.com/menus-holi ... f-pancakes

"600 BC - The first recorded mention of pancakes dates back to ancient Greece
and comes from a poet who described warm pancakes in one of his writings."


:scratch: Perhaps, "pancake" originated soon after the frying pan was invented
and immediately became more popular than the unleavened stonecake.

:roll However, stonecakes may be gaining in popularity once more,
especially when lathered in cannabutter. 8)

Chocolate Chia Pudding

:arrow: Combine 2 cups natural applesauce, 1/4 cup 100% cacao powder,
2 1/2 tbsp dark chia seeds; refrigerate overnight. Stir before serving.

"If prunes make you ‘go’, you might be eating them wrong" :o

"Prunes are a wonderful source of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium ...
They are also low in sodium. The fact that they are also a good source of soluble fibre
means that prunes can help to normalise blood sugar levels, lower your cholesterol,
and reduce your risk factors of cardiovascular disease and bowel cancer." :roll

Sardine Burgers

Post by Amigoo » Fri Jul 15, 2022 6:22 am

Sardine Burgers (not grilled)

Sardine mixture is frozen until used,
then heated before spooning onto buns
for mild fish-flavored "burgers". :roll:

:roll Ingredients:

two 4oz cans skinless/boneless sardines, drained & mashed
15oz can red kidney beans, drained & mashed
2 tbsp lemon-flavored fish oil
1/4 cup cold water
2 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp garlic granules
small red onion, diced

:arrow: Directions:

Lightly oil 8" x 8" baking dish
(for easier portions when served).

Stir ingredients as listed,
then press flat into baking dish,
cover with plastic wrap and freeze.

To serve, grill (or toast) hamburger buns
and separately heat sardine mixture.
Spoon mixture onto buns, add whatever
and serve like burgers.

:idea: Tips: Chill sardines and beans
before opening containers. This mixture
is cooked food and may be consumed cold,
even with salads and on crisps. Score portions
before mixture is completely frozen. 8)

"drinking seven or more 'units' of alcohol per week is associated with higher iron levels in the brain -- and iron accumulation is linked with Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. It also is seen as a potential mechanism for alcohol-related cognitive decline."

Re: https://www.livestrong.com/article/5543 ... d-of-iron/

"Your body doesn't absorb all the iron found in food. Many factors affect iron absorption, including the type of iron you consume. You absorb more 'heme' iron, found in meat, than 'nonheme' iron, found in grains and vegetables. If you inherit a defect in the HFE gene, you absorb around 30 percent of the iron you consume, compared to 10 percent for people without the defect"

"Alcohol of any type, including beer, enhances iron absorption."


:hithere With beer itself containing little iron, foods consumed with beer
might be the greater sources of "higher iron levels in the brain". ;)

"Forget the Mediterranean diet, experts explain why a NORDIC meal plan
packed full of berries, trout and dark leafy veg is key to healthy living" :roll

:hithere Suggests that a combined NORDIC/Mediterranean diet ("NorMed") offers a great variety of healthy food choices
and can be tailored to residence in many parts of the world. That NorMed hints "no processed foods nor medication"
is especially intriguing - even new lifestyle directing! 8)

Yum! I would never be able to stay out of the Spoonable Energy Jar. I am a peanut butter monster and need a chaperone every time I get the jar out of the cabinet. :oops: :shock:
It sounds wonderful, Rod. :D I'll make some of it when I get a job as a Lumberjack. :mrgreen: :love

"How eating QUINOA every day could stave off type 2 diabetes"

:idea: Not so impressive improvement of blood sugar after a meal,
but clue that portion is significant for blood sugar control
(limit carbs to what can be digested in several hours). ;)

Research keeps suggesting that minimizing high blood sugar
response per meal decreases insulin resistance. 8)

Some beans and grains become the carbohydrate gift
that keeps giving (glucose) during digestion ...
so monitor these portions more. :roll:
