I enjoy making my own vegetable juice. I typically add a fruit for an addrd touch of sweetness, but the rest of the ingredients are vegetables. I love this drink & try to have a 12 oz glass each morning for breakfast. When I entered this beverage using the calorie calculator, it came up as a 328 calorie drink. Can this be correct? The veggie drink is delicious, but not something that will satisfy me until lunchtime. Is there a veggie combination that will result in fewer calories without sacrificing the flavor? I will appreciate your insight.

Train A leaves the station at 1:38 PM and travels at 45 MPH.

Train B leaves at 1:45 PM and travels at 48 MPH.

How long will it take train B to pass train A?
2 hours, 20 minutes, and one second, assuming they both left the station at precisely 0 seconds?
I get 3:30 PM, which would be 1 hour 45 minutes from when B started.

(With them each having gone 84 miles.)

I get 3 minutes because the question is how long will it take train A to pass train B and assuming these are North America trains of standard size it takes a max of three minutes for two train to pass each other. The question was not at what time nor after how much travel time. :drinker:

the question also did not specify that train B is leaving the same station as train A.

so it's this

versus this

lol. kowabunga

another real world possibility is that even if they leave the same station at the same time, how do we know one train doesn't have a destination that will be reached before the passing can take place.

They are German trains. They are on strike this week.

Here's a challenge, I have food intolerances-
Fructans onion garlic and mushrooms
Fructose - fruit sugar also in many vegetables like snow peas beetroot sweet potato celery asparagus avocado etc
Gos - beans and legumes except canned lentils
Dairy and wheat pistachios and cashews are also out.
I was (previous to my relatively recent diagnosis) an ethical vegan, and still am
What would you make for me?

IN for the answer to this one.

OP has certainly shown that he is knowledgeable and a pretty cool guy so far and can roll with some lighthearted humor so I am certainly interested in his answer to this serious dilemma presented as a professional challenge. I think he's up to the task. I'll put 5 dollars on it. (virtual dollars that is).

I am always looking for high protein-low fat meals and snacks that are delicious. I don't do 'diet foods' and prefer natural ingredients. What are your favorites?

Last night I was making COd on the grill I put olive oil on the steaks (cod steaks) and they stuck and fell apart. What can I do to avoid this? Also, what can I do to add more "flavor" (marinade?)

Is it possible to get the bbq taste and texture without having a bbq? I have a conventional oven with grill function and sometimes I feel like making home made kebobs and I don't own a bbq grill, is it possible for me to do so?

I'd like to start preparing my work lunches on Sunday evening, making a batch for the whole week, as you mentioned you do for one of your clients.

I've been looking at a few options and quite like the idea of doing a salad with quinoa and chicken breast as I'm trying to up my protein intake.

What would you recommend that would be easy to prep, last well in the fridge and make enough for 5 meals at about 300 calories?

hello,

Thanks so much for this! I'm currently hooked on a ready-made ranchero chicken soup and would like to make my own lower salt (am assumng that ready-made is packed with the stuff) and cheaper version. No issues with regards to carbs/gluten etc (although low calorie would be a win for me) but I have an "English palette" (i.e. bit pathetic) when it comes to spices! :laugh:

thanks again,

S

I'm a really good cook but for the life of me I can't make an omelet (even in a non stick pan) without it sticking and/or breaking it. Do you have any tips or tricks?
