What are you guys eating today?

This morning I had a bunch of blended up bananas (6 of them) with vitamin powder in it. for lunch I had a huge muffin. And tonight I just ate a large potato with ketchup and a pomegranate LOTS of water today as usual.

It might sound light but trust me today is a nice break from my usual feasting habits. I always wondered what kind of food we are all eating, all over the Country.

Crunchy/lightly battered shell and all...yumm!!

I'm making Borracho beans, cornbread and an avacado

salad.

Migas wilth home made pico de gallo and fresh corn tortillas

This is what I usually have for breakfast on Sundays when I don't have to work.

chili, cornbread, chicken broth

Chili w beans:
-(Night before) Sort out 4 cups of dry beans (i used pinto) for rocks and bad beans, put in a crock pot, add 8 cups of clean water and put on high for 8 hours or more, may need to add more water.
-In a large pot, brown whatever meat you want (2-3 lbs) (i used bison, you could even use chicken breasts if you want - just kinda saute in some fat or oil.) remove the meat reserving some fat, the bottom of the pan should have developed some nice 'fond' or bits of stuck on meat (not black).
- Chop 3 Bell Peppers (different colors prefered) 3 onions, (some jalepenos/ serranos if you prefer heat). sorta sweat that in the reserved fat and fond until softens ((if you drained the meat then just add some saved bacon grease, lard rendered in a crockpot from 'fatback' or 'salt pork' (not the tub of hydrogenated junk), or oil/butter)). Add several cloves of minced garlic.
- add spices and cook them for a minute (this'll go ahead and help clear out your nasal passages). I used Mostly cumin and paprika with a little cayenne and chili powder (i feed small children who don't appreciate that flavor - i sacrifice and add a little hotsauce to my bowl). You will probably add mostly chili powder, grnd cumin, cayenne. then a bit of salt, oregano, maybe some cilantro. (grow an herb garden). stir it into the onions and cook a minute or two.
- this is where I add my chicken broth and tomato sauce and meat and beans. i do the chicken broth first to help deglaze the fond up.
You decide the ratio of liquids, but I tend to go something like 1/3 broth, 1/3 tomato sauce, 1/3 bean water (from the crockpot of soaked beans). a dash of baking soda at the end can cut the acidity of using a lot of tomatoes.
- once all ingredients are introduced, let them get to know each other for at least an hour or two, simmering.
serve with cornbread, instead of corn chips.

Cornbread: i use hodgson mill flour and cornmeal (http://www.nongmoproject.org/)
Dry Ingr:
1.25 C cornmeal
.75 C cornmeal
.125 C sugar (1/8)
1 t salt
2 t B powder
.5 t B soda

Wet Ingr:
(first make buttermilk by pouring just under a cup of milk, then add a splash of vinegar to the one cup line, let it work for a minute or three. it will sour the milk up and be great)
1 cup buttermilk (above)
.333 cup milk
2 eggs
3 T butter (reserve some for pan(s))
(you really need to get yourself several cast iron skillets, or muffin pans,)
heat the pans in the preheating oven at 375 while mixing ingredients, take them out and pour in some of that butter to slick em up. pour in your batter (should be hot enough to give off a little sizzle when hitting the pan).
put in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes.

Chicken broth:
I buy whole chickens, bring them home, cut them all up and portion the meat for whatever I'm planning during the week(put in bags/freeze/fridge) I save backbones and wing tips and ribs if i am needing boneless breasts in its own bags for making stock (freeze/fridge).
-1 back of a chicken and a couple wings
-1 onion (no need to chop small, quartered is fine (you can even leave the brown skin on to add a little color to the broth (might wanta rinse first)
- 2 celery stalks, rinsed and cut into chunks.
- a carrot or two chopped roughly
- 5-10 whole peppercorns (whole so they can be strained out later)
- as much clean water as the amount of broth you want.
- maybe add a bay leaf or something. or not...
add it all together, bring to a light boil and continue a light simmer for anywhere from 2-12 hours. If you go for the longer times (you should) you'll need to add more water every once in a while. as its getting up to its initial boil it will produce a foam that i skim off.
Let cool, get a good fine strainer that fits in the mouth of your jar and ladle through. (don't get so nitpicky that you consider using a coffee filter, not worth it) pour into old glass jars with tight lids and let cool, put in the fridge. If you let it sit still the fat will rise and create a nice little seal at the top of the jar. probably keeps over a week and a half if you ask me but I never get that far before its eaten.
This is in like every meal I make, very easy and I make it once a week.

Today

For breakfast, a few cups of homebrewed Starbucks coffee. I didn't have lunch. My supper was great; it consisted of homemade pasta sauce (sans meat) and Quinoi spaghetti with crisp fried, real bacon bits. Now I'm sipping on some Chimay Blue beers - in Chimay glassware [ http://i.imgur.com/9qEI7sn.jpg ]. :) And I am having some Que Pasa organic corn chips for a snack.

Nothing

I'm water fasting right now [she says as she browses gubhub and the comments below with longing].

bacon velveeta cheeseburger,

bacon velveeta cheeseburger, no lettuce or tomato, Crown Royal, and Coors Lite
I shared an apple and banana with a friend for breakfast.

I just snacked on very healthy steamed bok choy & yu choy with

oyster flavored sauce (thinned), topped with dried shallots. Very low cal, very low carb, low to nil on the glycemic index, Vit A,B,C,K, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, etc...you name it. I "pigged-out" on two big bowl servings of it on chop sticks. Totally NO GUILT snack!! Back on track to my paleo... :)

Organic milk. Try some. It tastes great.

Even the skim organic is markedly better than any regular milk variety.

Get some Chobani yogurt, also. It has 3 times the protein of regular yogurt and it all natural also. It's like eating a steak.

Organic seed bread is also worthy it's weight in gold.

Get back to primary food. It is expensive, but it is worth it.

Going pretty well. I have a fruit cobbler made with oat flour in the oven at the moment.

I just "ate" The HEALTHIEST meal!

Well, 1st off -- WHAT ABOUT the Sheriff's around the country standing-up against the Elite Oligarchy GUNBANS? Also -- I am in Denver, and a customer came in right after the Aurora shooting, and said there were 2 shooters, and Holmes was not there. What about the videos of 3 suspects being arrested at the Sandy Hook Massacre? I think the Obama/ New World Order crew are Coming for our guns FULL-FORCE. WE CAN AND MUST STOP the further eroding of our Constitutional Rights.
What did I just eat? Blended up Apples/Strawberries/Cucumber/Celery/Tomatoes... Watch the Movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" -- It is VERY inspirational.

Actually, I haven't eaten anything yet.

But, I do really want to sample the entire endangered species list. (deadly serious)

Home Made Chicken Soup

Natural chicken breast with broccoli, celery, carrots, potatoes, onions, black pepper, salt and a dash of cinnamon and ginger. I know the cinnamon and ginger sound weird but it tastes great. Also cornbread. Yeah I know the corn is probably gmo but what can ya do? I can't grind my own cornmeal.

skippy

i recommend

hodgson mill brand. they participate in the non-gmo project:
http://www.nongmoproject.org
kroger started carrying it and i bought em out, their flour is good too.

Most Ketchup

has high fructose corn syrup in it. GMO corn syrup. The muffin probably does to.

skippy

Even scarier...the evil "blueberries" in your mass produced

muffins..really made of sugar, corn cereal, modified food starch, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, artificial flavor, cellulose gum, salt and artificial colors like Blue #2, Red #40, Green #3 and Blue #1 and (drum roll, please)....(automobile radiator anti freeze) propylene glycol!!

HFCS

Look for HUNTS catsup with the large banner across the label saying...No High Fructose Corn Syrup!
Syrup for pancakes? Log Cabin Syrup with large banner saying the same. Have to look but Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice has a line w/o the HFCS too. Jelly? Look for Smuckers in their "Simply Fruit" not their regular jelly. On Smuckers, it's not a banner. Welches Jelly now has a no HFCS with banner proclaiming No HFCS. Soda/pop ? Good luck if you can find it in your town but JONES brand is good! As good as Coke or Pepsi which is loaded with the junk. Seems all processed foods have it so go back to cooking your own meals. God bless and Good Health to YOU!

The wikki explanation!

The coypu (from the Mapudungun, koypu),[2][3] (Myocastor coypus), also known as the river rat, [4] and nutria,[1][5] is a large, herbivorous, semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae. Originally native to subtropical and temperate South America, it has since been introduced to North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, primarily by fur ranchers.[6] Although it is still valued for its fur in some regions, its destructive feeding and burrowing behaviors make this invasive species a pest throughout most of its range.

There are two commonly used names in the English language for Myocastor coypus. The name "nutria" (or local derivatives such as "nutria- or nutra- rat") is generally used in North America and Asia; however, in Spanish-speaking countries, the word "nutria" refers to the otter. To avoid this ambiguity, the name "coypu" (derived from the Mapudungun language) is used in Latin America and Europe.[7] In France, the coypu is known as a ragondin. In Dutch it is known as beverrat (beaver rat). In Italy, instead, the popular name is, as in North America and Asia, "nutria", but it is also called castorino ("little beaver"), by which its fur is known in Italy.

Coypus live in burrows alongside stretches of water. They feed on river plants, and waste close to 90% of the plant material while feeding on the stems.[8]

Now from a Cajun aspect, some of us will and some of us won't eat them. From what I have seen and eaten it is no different than a coon. Cooked correctly it is every bit as good as a coon! Just have to know how to clean it. Stay away from the backbone and render out the fat.

that's amazing--

I admire people who can eat 'borderline' meats--
