Jonathon I have built up the level of heat I like after moving to NM 36 years ago. Went from the occasional chile eater to loving the stuff and putting it on many items I wouldn’t have thought to put it on before. That being said I don’t think I could eat what some others in this group do, I like hot but still like to be able to taste the food it is suppose to enhance.
HerbcoFood It would be if I could my hands on some. Will have to talk to my local butcher bud. Sous vide, rested tight in plastic, sliced thin. It would be some of the best roast beast one could have. Or, eat it like and steak with a quick sear. OK, I just ate and my taste buds are flying around.
Way to go, Joe Hell! I whipped myself into shape a while back after realizing I could still live well without digging myself an early grave. It does take work, and I still make my doctor roll his eyes a bit when I tell him about my diet and drinking, but things sure are a lot better.
Jonathon that is the way the Agave works, no impact on glycemic index. With the changes in the gut, I have lost certain base proteins and chemicals that process foods. Pro-biotics are a daily friend along with supplements that remove excess sugar from my system I take just before my meals. It is really weird, because you crave the sugar, you eat the source, and if you over do it you feel sick. Sugar in cured products don’t seem to react the same, since there is a reaction when heated with other products, such as salts. I use brown sugar and maple sugars, more than white when I cure my meats. I will have to try vegetable glycerin. Looks to be made from palm, coconut or soy. Thanks.
twilliams Ahh I thought you were keto for some reason! Well, either way man that’s awesome progress! 18 lb in a month is a lot. I’d always recommend adding exercise to any diet as it is fun and helps burn calories! I work 2 miles from where I live so for about a year (even in the freezing cold and 100°+ days) I rode my bike to work. The engine to my wife’s car blew and we had just bought a house and didn’t want to have another payment. Anyway, long story short (too late) that was probably the best shape I’ve been in since college and that was 4 miles a day!
twilliams Keto is great for weight loss, it just takes a lot of dedication. The biggest issue for me was that you can’t eat too much protein when going keto. Iif you do then your body betrays you and converts it to carbohydrates (sneaky body) and that meant a huge change in my eating habits. It helped me drop about 20 lb and I have kept about 15 of that off after about a year, so it absolutely can work, good luck!
I feel like I might ban Jonathon before I banned Joe Hell ! Hahahaha! Joe Hell if you ever do consider moving to Kansas, make sure you hit me up first. I can probably find a way to convince you to be around the action here in the greatest city in the country, Wichita, and also Walton’s!
