  • While I do think that buying 4 bottles of Baileys is excessive if you're not entertaining a large number of people, it seems as though you knowing that even one bottle is in the house would cause you to drink the whole bottle (or have a very hard time not doing so). That, to me, screams that you need to work on your…
  • Last row of the weekend, more doubles time
  • Team rowing retreat. Three rows yesterday three rows today. Yesterday was single, quad, single (in a wherry because I am not confident in a single and the water is cold). Today was 3 rows in a double.
  • I think working with a therapist and/or psychiatrist is the most logical course of action and frankly as much as you may not want to, it won't be a detriment to your health. There are lots of people for whom depression can not be controlled through diet or exercise, regardless of whether or not that exercise involves…
  • I agree with everyone who mentioned saving meat scraps for stock (you can make stock from any meat/fish - not just chicken). I know of people who will also freeze or dehydrate vegetable scraps for the same reason. In addition to this. Most berries freeze very well and are good in smoothies and baked goods and egg shells…
  • For reference: https://birchbenders.com/products/keto You can find the nutrition label, which includes the ingredients, if you scroll down and click "nutrition info".
  • Honestly I'm not a big fan of any of their mixes, or at least not the ones I've tried, nor the ones from Kodiak Cake (though I prefer Birch Bender but it's a low bar). My suggestion would essentially be to suffer it out (or throw away the mix) and then make your own pancakes and waffles without a mix. It might also be…
  • You say that the same day I go to the grocery store and come out with three bags of different flours. The woes of running out of whole wheat, bread flour, and coming very close to running out of all purpose flour within a one month period. Mind you the store I went to also a whole section specifically for Bob's Red Mill.…
  • I have baked apples baking in the oven at the moment.
  • Longer than usual rowing practice. It took hours for my feet to stop being cold.
  • Salad with dinner. My mom grew up in the US (as did I), but we are descendants of slaves from somewhere in Western Africa. Most of my salads were lettuce (likely romain), tomato, and cucumber and I quite liked them. That said, my dinners were typically pretty vegetable heavy, mostly in the form of legumes but I also was,…
  • Now that I'm nearly 100% again in terms of not being ill, I am doing that whole cooking thing. Wednesday: a really oddly written laffa recipe that, while unfortunately written resulted in really poofy bread. Also not really braised cabbage in a tasty tomato sauce from Bon Appetit. Can take a lot of salt, more than I gave…
  • You have it sent to 1lb per week but how much are you actually losing? Also the disagree button has nothing to do with liking or disliking a person nor about some desire to hurt people's feelings. If, for instance, someone said "I'm going to consume 700 calories a day" they would get a number of people replying saying how…
  • How much weight are you losing a week on average with your net calories at 1,200 (eating back exercise calories). I ask because the idea from a complete stranger that you may have mast cell disorder (which you seem okish with someone posing but I could be wrong) seems far more far fetched than the idea that you may…
  • If you can't pronounce words with Latin or Greek roots that's on you and to an extent how much formal education you've ended up with. It is, however, pretty easy to look up how to pronounce those roots. If you're unwilling to look said words up then that is solely on you and something you can easily change given you were…
  • Ok, see that's what I thought but I wasn't quite sure. Thanks for the confirmation.
  • How are you defining carnivore? I'm never really sure what people actually mean when referring to that diet (in humans).
  • My faith in humanity has not been restored (it's been a day, I swear, it's been a day).
  • Also I wouldn't be shocked if what he said was taken out of context.
  • Disagreeing with the idea that you can somehow deep fry anything using a spray of oil isn't hate. Frankly disagreeing about a whole lot of things isn't hate, but that's definitely something that falls squarely in the "not hate" box.
  • Well let's take a look at the ingredient list from a not especially high quality US dog food. Pedigree dry beef and lamb flavor:* Ground whole corn: so I guess no polenta/grits for you? * Meat and bone meal: while I personally have no desire to include bonemeal in my hamburger, chicken paitan ramen broth involves grinding…
  • Or make your own peking duck pancakes/wrappers which are beyond easy and require very few ingredients, all of which you likely have in your kitchen. https://thewoksoflife.com/easy-peking-duck-mandarin-pancakes/
  • There are also existing rowing clubs/teams that offer erging courses in the winter specifically for adult beginners. Mine does, there are likely a handful of clubs in Puget Sound area that do, and I know that there are others on the East Coast that do as well (just based on clicking around websites). I'm assuming the rest…
  • Except people are consuming protein powder when they could get protein from other sources, animal or vegetable. It is acting as a replacement for another food. Sure there are people who see it as a supplement, but it's replacing another food source. Note that I don't have any thoughts with regards to the health benefits of…
  • Have you consulted a doctor and/or a physical therapist (PT)?
  • This happens outside sports too though does it not. Person A looks objectively better on paper than person B. Person B, however, gets the spot because they seem, subjectively, like a better person for position. Or say, Person A has 3.5 GPA and person B has a 4.0. Objectively person B is the better student. That doesn't,…
  • I think that ultimately you won't really know because you'll never have the full picture of what was going on. I can think of reasons why it would be a poor idea to have the sophomore in and and thus the 12th best player not make the cut and I can think of reasons why having the sophomore play would actually be a very good…
  • While I have no real interest in basketball and didn't play a team sport in high school, I am currently a competitive athlete and I was a serious musician throughout middle and high school. The truth of the matter is, in sports, music, and life there are always factors to your getting chosen after an…
