You seem to eat at home most every meal. What would you say you spend on groceries per month?



I only eat out when forced to,
restaurant food mainly sucks.
I'm only feeding myself, so
the cost is low. I mostly work
with Brussel sprouts, radishes,
eggplant, cauliflower, turnip
greens, green beans, cabbage,
chicken, pork, and occasionally
ground beef. I have just about
every spice known. Any fish I
eat is usually canned.
Always go for flavor and not
quantity. Slow cooking a pork
roast to 140, so it's pink in
the middle, has wonderful
flavor. Now that'd it's been deemed
safe at 140, you have no idea
what you're missing. Every bit
as good as rare beef roast.

Roast pork with a BBQ rub. This is 1/2 of
a picnic roast baked at 350 for 1 hr 30 min
till it reached 135 in the middle. I took it
out and let it rest and 10min later it was 144.

You can make this, it's super easy. The bark
on the top, the crust on the fat cap, is so
delicious you won't believe you made this
yourself. Thin slice it with a little of the bark.

Look how pink it is. Full of flavor like no
other pork you've had. Completely safe
to eat at 140 degrees.

Eating is one of the few dependable things
we do in life. I looked forward to this all
day because I knew what was coming. The
veggies slow roasted and absorbed the
meat juices, I said 'holy crap' with every bite.

Waffle iron cooked eggplant, covered
in paper thin roast pork from last
night, cheddar, and sour cream.
The red color is sprinkled on smoked
paprika. I buy the stuff by the pound,
it's too expensive in the small containers.
Try it, you'll like it.

The other pic is homemade coleslaw.
So much better than store bought
which always has too much sugar.
This has no sugar and has a tang
and sweetness all it's own.

Yesterday lunch was:

If you like fried chicken and have not been to a Gus's, you are missing out. They have about 30 of them around the country.

Dinner was:

Gus's added to bucket list. (Get it?)

I made my own ceasar dressing with olive oil, because all the store brands use vegetable oil.

Vegetable oil are a toxin that pollutes your chakra energy.

My dressing tastes pretty bad. The olive oil taste is way too strong. Now that I think about it, this should have been obvious.

I guess there must be some type of fruit oil that isn't so strong.

Did you use extra virgin, it has almost
no flavor and is perfect for dressing.
The stronger kind is used for cooking.

Vegetable oil is awful for you, especially
soybean oil and canola oil.

"Vegetable oils contain a very high concentration of Omega 6 fatty acids. These fatty acids oxidize easily. Omega-6 fats have been linked to many types of cancers and a host of other problems."

Vegetable oil is another 20th century
'miracle' invention. Avoid it at all costs.
I only use olive oil, butter, lard, and
coconut oil.

I keep hearing there is an enormous amount of fake Olive oil on the market. Do research on your brand. There is a definitive difference between regions of production as well. I prefer olive oil from Greece, Italy, California, and Spain. In that order.

Yeah veggie oil is a super heated, chemically treated industrial byproduct invented only about 100 years ago. Olive oil is made by squishing olives.

Studies on veggie oil are scant but it doesn't look great. Also probably bad for T. Anyway, I'll bet on squished fruit over industrial waste.

I used star extra virgin.

I looked it up and it is real, however it was a cheaper brand. I thought the flavor of parm, anchovies, lemon and Dijon would be so strong that the base oil would be overwhelmed.

Incorrect. Maybe a higher quality one would work.

I checked out the Walmart brand
and it's pure olive oil. Some off
brand companies mix it with
sunflower or safflower oil.
