I worked at a theaterpub and got to work on developing the popcorn process for the theater. The best theater popcorn uses a coconut oil base as the popping fat. You want to use pure coconut oil or get a product like this or this. These products are primarily coconut oil with annatto for coloring, and they are solid at room temperature. They are better than regular oils or butter flavored liquid popping oil because the coconut oil tastes richer and more unctuous.

You also want to get Flavacol popcorn salt. This is a commercial product, and I've never seen it offered in retail, but you can get it from Amazon. Flavacol is a superfine powdered salt with butter flavoring and annatto. It's a finer grind than the popcorn salt sold in grocery stores. When you make popcorn, you add the coconut oil to the pot, heat it up, then add the popcorn and the Flavacol. It sticks to the kernels as they pop, and the popcorn doesn't need to be salted after popping.

Finally, the butter. You can't use just straight melted butter, because the water fraction of the butter will soak into the popcorn and make it soggy. You need to use clarified butter. Melt a pound or so of butter in a pot on the stove, and let it simmer for awhile. You want to let the water underneath the butterfat reduce and boil away, but you don't want to let all of it boil away or the butter will burn. You want to allow the milk sugar in the water to begin to caramelize. This will flavor the butterfat with a wonderful, nutty aroma. Once that happens, let the butter cool, then pour off the fat. Use this clarified butter to butter your popcorn. It won't make the kernels soggy. You can refrigerate any leftover butter tightly sealed for next time.

Once you have butter on the popcorn, you can add flavorings. But anything you use needs to be very finely pulverized. That's why Kraft-style powdered cheese is so popular. Even powdered parmesan cheese like you get in the green can is too coarse to really stick, but you can pulverize it finer in a food processor.

One of my favorite seasonings is bacon, cheese and chive. The bacon needs to be fried crisp and drained well, then frozen before processing. You can't get it quite as fine as parmesan before it balls up, but you can get it close enough. Then pulverize some good parmesan, Reggiano or Grana Padana. Mix together the bacon and parmesan with some Kraft-style powdered cheese, dehydrated chives, black pepper, cayenne and a hint of garlic powder to taste. You can add a little cornstarch to this mixture to keep it from clumping.


If you like popcorn, you should try mushroom popcorn which pops up rounder. It's not my personal favorite, but it's used by lots of kettle corn companies, and the shape is distinctive.

Here's a good recipe for butter toffee popcorn. It's better than caramel corn, because butter, and the candy coating is more crispy. This recipe includes peanuts, so it's like Cracker Jack, only better. I've made this with alder smoked salt and toasted chopped almonds/pecans instead of peanuts, and it's a big hit. Sort of like smokehouse almonds with caramel corn.

This is my personal favorite. It is spicier than anything you would usually get in a grocery store and I think it has pretty decent flavor. I always doctor ramen with sauteed vegetables like mushrooms or scallions and almost always with an egg poached in the soup while its cooking.

You're probably familiar with most of these already, but these are my favorite foods for filling up on minimal calories. Let me know if you want any additional info about any of them.

  • Puffed corn - 60cal per cup and lots of volume

  • Sugarfree jello cups - 5-15cal each

  • Halo Top ice cream (praise be)

  • All the green leafy vegetables

  • Soup (even cream-based ones can be pretty reasonable)

  • Egg whites

  • Oat fiber

  • Shirataki noodles

  • Tofu

  • Coco Lite - 16cal each. They're light, puffy, large crackers. Kind of like packing peanuts that you'd use to ship something. Not bad with Laughing Cow or something similar on them.

  • Laughing Cow - Mostly 35cal each.

  • Arctic Frozen ice cream - 150-300cal per pint. Easier to find than Halo Top, but pretty gross. Good for desperately eating a whole pint of ice cream.

  • Rice crackers - This link is just for reference. You can find different brands of these kind of crackers at most stores. Around 100cal for 16 crackers. Not bad, pretty bland.

  • Wasa Crackers - Many varieties, pretty low cal.

  • Turkey/chicken chili – If you like canned chili, the turkey or chicken based ones are pretty good and have far fewer calories than the beef ones. I like Hormel's Turkey Chili, but it's admittedly pretty white trashy. Always get it with beans. They provide extra protein and fill you up more.

  • Rice cakes – 35cal each and good as a substitute for crackers.

  • PB2 - I've never tried this but have heard good things from people who like peanut butter.

  • Protein powder – 150ish calories per serving. Fills you up fast and is cheaper than your premixed drinks.

  • Hot Pockets – If you can stand these, avoid the low fat ones. The regular kinds have about the same amount of calories. 200-300 cal each. Good for a quick, shitty meal.

  • Walden Foods - - I've tried their salad dressing and their coffee creamer. You're not going to be wowed by any of their stuff, but for having almost no calories, it can be worth it.

  • ThinSlim Foods - – I haven't tried them, but have only heard good things.

  • Freeze-dried fruit – They are different than "dried" fruit. They've had all the liquid removed, so they're crunchy. 100-150 per bag generally and you can find a bunch of fruits.

  • Sprouts of any kind – alfalfa sprouts, brocolli sprouts, etc. Cheap and filling with good flavor.

  • Greek yogurt – Usually 100cal per serving. Comes in some good flavors, and you can find it pretty much anywhere.

  • Low cal pudding. Either premade or boxed-instant. You can find them in the 25-100cal per serving range. Can be nice for a quick sweet or you can mix it with other stuff.

  • FlatOut Bread - There are a bunch of brands that make similar items. Great for making little pizzas, rollups, etc. 90-110cal each.

  • Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers Delicious on their own or with a topping. Roughly 8cal per cracker.

  • Coating chicken breasts with powdered milk (in addition to whatever herbs+spices) helps it brown quicker so that the outside is nice and brown without drying out the meat.

  • I use a baking soda mix to rough up the surface of really smooth meats so that they brown much better. Chicken breast, loins, and other whole muscle meats take this well.

  • Using homemade shio koji in place of salt in many savory dishes adds a little savory bump to dishes.

  • When apple juice concentrate goes on sale, I buy 3-4 cans. 1 can apple juice concentrate + 2TB kosher salt = super tasty dark meat poultry brine. Bonus if you sear then smoke the birds. Citrus juices work too but the high acidity tends to make the meat mushy.

  • When recipes ask for the use of any citrus, I use at least 2 versions of that citrus to increase the complexity of the profile. If lemon chicken requires lemon juice, then I use lemon juice, fresh zest, and macerated lemon peel.

  • When recipes ask for vinegar, I sometimes mix and use multiple types to make the profile interesting. For example, a balsamic vinegar dressing might also include a partial substitution with rice vinegar or black vinegar.

  • Nearly every root vegetable can be made in the same style as mashed potato. My favorite is half celery root and half yukon gold potatoes. It's lighter and there's a slight herbal hint that goes well with the cream and butter. Parsnip and potato is a nice combo too.

  • When coating small items with salt.... nuts, popcorn, croutons, etc.... I use Flavacol. Read the reviews here.

  • When making poke, I always start by coating the fish with sesame oil first. If you salt and spice it first then the fish gets mushy quicker and weeps fish juice. Blech.

  • When making grilled cheese, I start by putting one piece of bread down in the hot pan ON TOP of cheese. In 3-4 minutes, the cheese browns and gets really nutty. Then I flip that slice, add more cheese, and another buttered slice on top. The nutty cheese inside of the sandwich is life changing if you use a flavorful cheese and brown it right.

  • When making kale salads, chop the kale and then roll it tightly in a kitchen towel. Then twist, massage, and bend the bundle to tenderize the kale. It removes some of the unpleasant toughness.

  • When serving foods that are accompanied by mustard and ketchup, I make 'fresh' versions which can be a refreshing change from the bottled stuff. Ketchup is basically a cooked combination of tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, onion powder, and salt. I just mix those ingredients and add a tomato (shaved over a grater). The fresh versions are definitely different in flavor but just similar enough to make a friendly impression. I do the same with mustard starting with mustard powder, vinegar, soy sauce, pepper, salt, and spices.

  • When I serve steaks, I buy +15% more than I need and dry age at home.

    I have more but I have to actually work today.
u/grewapair · 30 pointsr/movies

It's called flavacol, a salt that sticks to popcorn better, and you can buy it on Add it to Snappy white popcorn and you'll have something better than the movie theater.

u/agoia · 29 pointsr/answers

This is what you really want, OP :

Use whatever popcorn and oil is handy/works best, that seasoning is what'll make the difference.

u/WilliamNyeTho · 29 pointsr/IAmA

I was also a movie theater employee, and I can confirm that this oil is NOT what makes the popcorn amazing. Here it is (or at least some similar variant): flavacol
This is some amazing tasting salt material which is grated extremely finely, giving it a huge surface area to volume ratio, thus allowing it to dissolve into the popcorn easier than typical salt.

Man, this brings back such memories. I worked at a local theater and we would routinely oversell Titanic by roughly 30-40 tickets (per management directive) so it was my job to tell 30-40 angry people they couldn't get in. 17 year old me got yelled at so much. As much as it sucked, I learned a lot dealing with all that.

BTW if you want authentic movie theater popcorn at home buy some Flavacol

My room mate used to eat my food. Well used to until I put this in some carne asada I made. I took him to the hospital where the conversation I overheard was hilarious.

"well then stop stealing his food."

Apparently they deal with this type of thing a lot being in a college town.

PB2 is also a great alternative to peanut butter. It's 45 calories for 2 tablespoons. They also make a chocolate version, you can buy a two pack that includes one of each flavor on Amazon!! Overall a lifesaver for my peanut-butter-loving self. :)

u/rexlift · 25 pointsr/Fitness

Explore-Asia-Organic-Spaghetti 25g of protein per 2oz serving. To put that in perspective, 1bowl is about 6oz. One of the best tasting highest protein foods I have found. Learned about it on reddit from another user.

u/fancyHODOR · 25 pointsr/tifu

You may want to try PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. It's pretty good, especially in shakes. It also has less fat than ground peanuts and peanut butter, and it's clearly marked as what it is, so you can avoid possibly killing the people you interact with in the future.

I used Betty Crocker's recipe as a starting point. All I did was sub Carbquik for Bisquik and heavy whipping cream for milk.

Keto Sausage Cheese Balls

  • 3 cups Original Bisquick™ Carbquik mix
  • 1 pound uncooked bulk pork sausage
  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (16 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley or 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes

    Instructions: Mix everything together well. Roll into balls about one inch in diameter. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. (I was able to mix, roll, and freeze them at home. I baked them at work in the toaster oven from frozen and they came out fine! They taste very much like the original recipe which I've had several times now.)

    Makes about 100. Betty says 102. I got 93.

    Nutritional Info per ball: 58 calories per ball. 5 g of fat. 4 g protein. 1 g net carb.

    Note: I had 13 on my plate. This was way too much. These are an indulgent treat. I usually bring these to parties and the like, but I was so excited to use the Carbquik which I got this week. I'm keeping the rest frozen for until I have guests over.

NongShim Shin Ramyun is my go to instant noodle, flavorful and delicious. Easily complemented with a fried/softboiled egg, simple greens and some fried spam. Each pack is $~0.87 each, much cheaper if you buy it from a local Asian market. I typically get mine for about $0.60/pack.

u/dreiter · 17 pointsr/nutrition

Personally I think potassium is the most difficult nutrient to get enough of. To help with my daily goal I have switched over to using lite salt which is an iodized blend of sodium and potassium. Over the past 7 days I have averaged 4500 mg of potassium from dates, soy milk, coffee, carrots, and lite salt.

(To be fair, I am currently consuming an unsustainable amount of dates, but this 11 lb box isn't going to eat itself!)

For most people, leafy greens are the best bet for easily increasing your intake. One cup of cooked chard is nearly 1000 mg.

Hey a fellow vegetarian Indian! I've been on this diet for over 8 months now and it's definitely possible, although not eating eggs will make it a tad harder. Below are some things (sans eggs) that I eat regularly. Note that this is a little heavy on carbs for a strict keto diet since will end up eating between 30-40g of carbs per day. The daily limit to keep you in ketosis varies from person to person. This worked for me. I don't calorie count since it's too much of a hassle for me. So you might want to tailor this plan based on your needs. I've changed parts of this diet since I started working at a new place where I can get cafeteria food.

Breakfast: Bullet proof coffee. It's simple, fast, keeps you satiated and is heavy on fat. After having this, the rest of your meals only need to be low carb, with good amounts of protien and fat.

Other meal ideas:

  • Low carb tortillas are your friend! I used to eat [Josep's low carb tortillas] ( These tortillas tasted very similar to wheat rotis. Yes, they are 5g net carb per tortilla, and I used to have 4 daily (2 lunch, 2 dinner). As I said, this plan is a little high on carbs.

  • What's roti without a good serving of butter on it, eh? Smother your roti until it drips with butter!

  • Now that you have your roti, we can make some sabjis to go with it! Vegetables you can use are spinach, mushrooms, cauliflower, cabbage, eggplant, cucumbers, bell peppers (capsicum), turnips (strict ketoers might disagree) and okra (lady's finger). Throw in an occasional tomato and onion. Now you have an entire array of subji ideas open to you. Palak paneer, gobi masala, baigan ka bartha, cabbage kuruma ... well you get the idea. You can add cream cheese to your gravy curries to make it thicker and add more fat. I used shredded coconut in the kuruma in order to add more fat. Paneer is also a great addition, although I rarely had it. Check the nutrition info for all ingredients and use your best judgement.

  • But you can't have roti without some good dal, can you? [Black soy beans] ( to the rescue! Unlike other beans and lentils, Black soy beans are low on carb and high on protein. Hello Roti and Rajma! Cheese on Rajma is also great!

  • You can also explore vegan meat options such as veggie sausages and patties. Steam a bag of frozen brocolli/cauliflower, top it with cheese and add a vegan sausage for a quick, lazy meal! Froze vegetables plus eggs gives you even more options (should you consider eating eggs).

    Hope this plan gives you a starting point. Believe me when I say this diet works! You feel much better after cutting out the carbs, especially after being on a carb heavy diet such as a vegetarian Indian diet. Good luck!

u/Dacvak · 14 pointsr/ketorecipes

Man, I am proud of myself for this one. First, let me specify once again: This is a large, blueberry scone that is only 100 calories and 3 grams net carbs. It's also only 4 (or 5) ingredients, and it's the easiest thing in the world to make.

First and foremost, the star of the show here is carbquik. I don't know why this stuff doesn't pop up in this sub more often. Look, I love almond flour and bread that actually tastes like eggs as much as the next guy, but when I'm truly craving a flour substitute, this stuff is the real deal. Assuming they aren't grossly lying about the carb content here, this is the way to go when replicating anything "bread".

Here's the recipe:

  • 1/3rd cup carbquik (90 calories, 2g nc)
  • Swerve (or sweetener of your choice) until desired sweetness. I usually do like a tablespoon or so. (0)
  • One exact splash of vanilla extract (optional) (0)
  • 8-10 blueberries (7 calories, 1g nc)
  • Just enough unsweetened almond milk to barely form a dough. Seriously, it should be crumbly and barely stick together. Like, maybe a tablespoon or two of almond milk. (3-8 calories, 0g nc)

    Then just mix all that shit together. You can knead it a little if you want, it's not super important. Then cook at 350 for 15 minutes or so, just until it starts getting brown on top. I actually cook mine in an air frier, so I'm not 100% sure how that translates to a standard oven.

    But dayum. Not only does this taste great, but it's right around 100 calories and only 3 net carbs. Ridiculous. Goes super well with tea or coffee.

    Enjoy, keto friends.
u/TooShiftyForYou · 13 pointsr/funny

Another user's answer:

MyFitnessPal estimates 7 grams of dried marshmallows to be 25 calories.

That makes this 40 lb bag 453,592.5 calories.
If you are watching your diet at about 2000 calories per day, you could eat nothing but marshmallows from this bag for the next 226.8 days.


u/miss_baerly · 13 pointsr/Parenting

Hey, lots of folks have chimed in, may I give you a perspective from a parent who had TWO "severely allergic" children? And was lucky enough to enroll both of them in a peanut desensitization trial? (They both can tolerate peanuts now, yaay!)


If you have any doubts, have your child tested for allergies. There are two main tests. One, aka the "ige" test, is a blood test looking for specific antigens that allergic people have in their bloodstream. This is not foolproof, in fact, many "false positives" are reported. That is, many children test positive but can actually ingest peanuts. They're not sure why. There are far fewer "false negatives", but there are some. Still, it may help you ultimately.

The other kind of test is a skin test. Again, many false positives. But almost no false negatives. In other words, if they prick your back, rub some peanut protein in, and nothing happens, you're very likely fine. (Again, a positive skin test, or a big 'ol rash, might actually be ok--your digestive tract can handle it sometimes anyway).

All that said, if you don't have a history of food allergies in your family, and if your children have not shown any signs of eczema or asthma or other allergies / breathing problems, and you'd like to introduce peanuts, do so responsibly. Yes, you could (arguably should, if you want 100% peace of mind) go get a food challenge from an allergist, but there are other ways.

Nowadays, there's such a thing as "dry powdered peanut butter" that you can find online or in some health foods stores. It's basically powdered peanuts. I know this because it's the ONLY way I can get kid #2 to ingest some peanuts daily. (yes, per the allergy study, now that we're done, we have to give each of them a small dose of peanuts every day). Kid #1 eats a small peanut butter cup each day. Kid #2 HATES HATES HATES the smell / taste / thought of peanuts, in any form . . . except as a little bit of peanut powder stirred into applesauce. I mean, we tried peanut butter crackers, Reese's, Peanut Butter M&M's, Nutter Butter cookies, you name it. He cried while he tried to choke it down!

The fantastic thing about it is that you can give a very small amount in another food (like, seriously, start one day w/ 1/8 of a teaspoon in some yogurt--heck, even less!), then slowly up the "dosage" (not the same day) until you're sure s/he's can tolerate it. This is quite literally the way our study worked. We started w/ a few mg's of peanut protein, took that for two weeks, then got it doubled, etc. Seriously, they went from a controlled reaction of something like 15mg's (roughly 1/20th of one nut) to being able to tolerate 5,000 mg's (roughly 16 nuts!) of peanut protein at the end. This was over a period of a couple of years, though! But doing it this way (like a little controlled experiment) should be far less worrisome than just willy-nilly giving him/her a dollup of peanut butter.

It's also absolutely critical that you would be watching for any signs of a reaction should you need medical care. Having liquid Benadryl around and being absolutely prepared, if necessary, to go to the E.R. (or, better yet, call an ambulance) should be part of your plan. Look for any hives (face and upper body usually are first, but it can rapidly be everywhere), any swelling, any difficulty breathing. Head to the E.R. (or call the ambulance), and administer Benadryl (they have sweet tasting liquid kid packs at the drug store) if this happens.

Best of luck. Having kids with food allergies sucked ass. We're soooooooooooo glad we found our study!

u/fastertoday · 13 pointsr/soylent

For me, the trick to weight loss on soylent was to go 100% soylent and clear the house out of all other foods. That did two things:

  1. Precise calorie control. Because soylent is so uniform it is easy to know exactly how many calories I eat every day. So I can keep a consistent calorie deficit day in and day out for months.

  2. No other food in the house makes it hard to cheat. I'd have to get up and go to the store to buy some junk food. That extra effort is like a crutch for my willpower. If there is a bag of chips in the kitchen a momentary loss of willpower means I'm eating the whole bag. But if I have to drive a mile that gives me time for my moment of weakness to pass. Most of the time it passes before I even get in the car. If you have vending machines at your workplace, leave all your cash at home, or at least in the car and park as far away from the building as you can.

    As for ice-cream soylent - that's practically all I eat. I use the powdered soylent, mix it with 2x-3x as much water as normal in a 32oz wide-mouth canning jar (which were 9 for $12 when I bought them) add a blend of 2 sugar substitutes and flavoring (I recommend peppermint, chocolate, butterscotch, papaya and coconut). Then freeze it for about 5 hours so it is solid but not rock-hard (shake it about 2 hours in to keep it from settling before it freezes) and then puree it with an immersion blender right in the jar until it is like soft-serve ice-cream and is just barely the right consistency to suck through a straw.

    A bonus of using so much extra water is that one ~24 oz serving of soylent ice-cream is only about 250 calories. That's a lot of ice-cream for so little calories. It is very filling.

I made keto Louisiana "red beans" and "rice" with sausage! Sorry for the low picture quality. The recipe is a bit involved, but I like my keto meals with some complexity.

-1/2 onion, diced

-1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced

-1 jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded, & minced (optional)

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-1lb cooked smoked sausage links, sliced (I found a brand that has 1 carb per link. You could also use shrimp and/or chicken)

-1 cup chicken broth (or water + bouillon)

-15oz can black soy beans, drained and rinsed (I used these )

-1 bay leaf

-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

-1/2 tsp dried thyme

-1/4 tsp dried sage

-2 tsp dried parsley

-1 tsp Cajun or Creole seasoning (like Tony C's)

-Salt & pepper to taste

-24oz riced cauliflower (I used 2x 12oz bags of the frozen Trader Joe's brand)

-Avocado oil, butter, or lard for sautéing

-Xanthan gum (optional)

  1. Spread cauliflower rice out on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and put in the oven @ 300 degrees to dry out while prepping other ingredients, up to 30 minutes. If using frozen, it does not need to be thawed first
  2. Sauté onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño in oil over medium heat in a 2qt pot until softened, then stir in minced garlic
  3. Add sliced sausage and sauté until heated through (make sure it's the pre-cooked kind)
  4. Add broth, beans, and spices. Stir to combine
  5. Simmer over medium-low heat for 20-30mins or until liquid is reduced. You can sprinkle a pinch of xanthan gum in if you want the liquids thicker
  6. When the mixture is almost done simmering, heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower rice and stir/sauté continuously for around 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste
  7. Put cauliflower rice in a bowl, pour sausage/beans mixture on top (remove bay leaf first) and enjoy!

    Yield: 4 servings @ 8g net carbs each (would only be 6g net carbs if you use a zero-carb meat/protein. You could cut another 1-2 carbs per serving if you leave out the onions & peppers, but it would definitely change the overall taste.)
u/sgtfoleyistheman · 13 pointsr/ketorage

These have 1g of net carbs per serving, with 3.5 servings per can.

u/Mr_Truttle · 13 pointsr/keto

Theoretically shouldn't be too hard. Toss your pork rinds in a little butter for sticking power and then some Flavacol to coat.

u/SunBelly · 13 pointsr/slowcooking

TIP: don't cook the noodles in the crock pot. Boil the noodles by themselves, drain, and then add them directly to your bowls before adding the soup. This keeps the noodles from getting soggy and is much easier to portion and serve.

Also, please don't use crappy instant noodles for this dish. You already spent so much time and money preparing good ingredients, you can surely afford to spend more than a dollar on noodles. If you can't find any fresh or frozen ramen like Sun Noodle or quality dry ramen like Hakubaku, get Nongshim brand instant noodles. They're WAY better than Top Ramen/Maruchan.

Of course, you don't have to use ramen noodles at all. This recipe isn't Japanese, so why not use lo mein or rice noodles or Chinese flat egg noodles or buckwheat noodles or bean threads. If you can't find any of those, you can always substitute spaghetti or linguine. Literally anything would be tons better than cheap instant noodles.

u/fudabushi · 12 pointsr/Fitness
u/paingawd · 12 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Here's the short and dirty list:

  • Scale for mixing by weight It's recommended that you start mixing by weight. It makes your results more repeatable and cuts down on cleanup.

  • Vegetable Glycerin

  • Propylene Glycol

  • Bottles to contain your juice(I prefer HDPE bottles over PET or glass) A great vendor on Amazon for bottles is 510 Central. Get a few different sizes: 10 ml for testing flavors and new mixes, 30-120 ml bottles for making larger batches of juice(I usually use 30 or 60 ml bottles)

  • Labels for said bottles. You can go with printing your own on a printer, or you can slap a piece of masking tape on the bottle and write the juice name on that with a sharpie. Choice is yours, but use some sort of label so that you're not playing "guess the flavor" after a week's steeping.

  • Nicotine, if you use juices that contain nic. If you're a no-nic vaper, skip it. If you want nicotine in your juice, don't go cheap. Two of the most suggested companies to source nicotine are Carolina Extracts and Nicotine River. Carolina is more expensive, but it's clean with ZERO flavor(That's a good thing) I just recently ordered some nicotine from Nic River, so I can't speak to quality, but it's what a good number of mixers use. I prefer to mix with 100 mg/ml nicotine in a 100% PG base. PG-based nicotine is less prone to "hot spots"-Areas of liquid in the container where the nicotine concentration is higher than specified on the label. Hot spots are more common with VG-based nicotine(So I've read). Regardless of whichever base you choose to go with, ALWAYS shake your nicotine before using it or pouring off into a smaller container! In fact, ALWAYS shake your ingredients! Nicotine and flavor concentrates should always be brought to room temperature and shaken before use to ensure that they haven't settled between mixing sessions.

  • Flavors. Don't go willy-nilly buying flavors that sound good. Some work well with each other, and some get along about as well as Jack Daniels and pizza. Instead, find 2-3 recipes that sound good to you and buy the concentrates to make those juices.

  • Head over to /r/DIY_eJuice and read the sidebar. Once you're done, read it again. I'm not trying to sound elitist. There's a shit-ton of great info in the sidebar and wiki. Use the knowledge that others have gathered together in one place to your advantage. There's even a "first flavors list" over there that if followed, a new mixer can make some very decent juices straight out of the gate.

    That's the quick run down. It's a blast to do, and a helluva lot cheaper than buying at your local B&M! The up-front cost is a little steep, but for about $100 you can get to making some great juice.

Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce. Arguably the most delicious tasting hot sauce, and served on the table at every restaurant in Portland. Perfect balance of heat and flavor. It's legit.

An average bathtub holds about 50 gallons (

To make 100% of pudding, you need approximately:
9% non-fat milk powder
6% cornstarch
5% cocoa powder
0.3% liquid sucralose
79.7% water

If you want to fill your bathtub halfway, you need 25 gallons (200lbs) of pudding, which is:
18 lbs of milk powder
12 lbs of cornstarch
10 lbs of cocoa powder
12 oz of liquid sweetener

Milk Powder - $85.50: 18x

Cornstarch - $16.75: 1x

Cocoa - $43.88: 1x

Liquid Sweetener - $77.94: 6x

Total = $85.50 + $16.75 + $43.88 + $77.94 = $224.07

If you halved the amount of milk powder and cocoa to make a weaker tasting pudding, you could bring the cost down to ~$160.

u/deanreevesii · 11 pointsr/KidsAreFuckingStupid

I use EZSweets, which is like a liquid concentrated splenda. One bottle lasts me like 6 months to a year.

If you get a drop on your finger you'll want to wash your hands. It only takes licking it off your finger once to teach you to never do it again, but it's pretty great stuff otherwise.

(The benefit of the liquid sucralose is that the packages of splenda actually have carbs in them, because they need some kind of powder to bind the sweetener. This makes splenda counter productive to keto, and other carb restricted diets. The liquid doesn't have the carbohydrates that splenda does, so it won't throw you out of ketosis, slow down your weight loss progress.)

So one easy way is to start adding more salt than you think you should to your food. That's why restaurant food tastes sooooo good, salt and butter.

Soy sauce marinades on fish and chicken will also help salt. And getting a good quality popcorn salt. There's a lot more sodium per tsp of theater grade popcorn salt than in sea salt because of the finer grind.

This is the popcorn salt I use.

Hey, I love popcorn, it's awesome. Maybe you love it too? Got a stove? If you do, get yoself one of these -

If you put it on medium high (electric stove), put in the oil and add three kernels, wait for them to pop then dump the rest of the kernels in, you will have popcorn that pops nearly all of the kernels. The Orville Redenbacher kernels pop the best IMO (I was buying bulk from sprouts, but they weren't popping as well). Also, get this - You now can make movie theater style popcorn in less than five minutes.

I'd agree with other posters that repeat meals make life on keto a lot easier. Here's an example of a day for me:

<-- 11am: Chai tea w/ heavy whipping cream, equal sweetener OR decaf coffee from fresh beans, w/ heavy whipping cream, equal sweetener. (Sub almond milk if calories are a concern)

11am - 2pm: Leftovers OR 1 egg, 4 slices bacon, strawberries. If lifting that day, also 1 isopure protein shake w/ almond milk.

2pm - 5pm: ham, nuts, and mustard, rolled up in a slice of swiss cheese x2 (these little wraps are SO GOOD! I throw in some pickles or cornichones if I've got 'em).

5pm --> ground turkey chili with greek yoghurt or sour cream, thai red curry soup, taco bowls over lettuce, FAT HEAD PIZZA, and now, keto biscuits and gravy are my go to's for easy, quick meals.

Dessert: berries with whipped cream, or low carb ice cream with a dollop of peanut butter.


I aim for dinners that are easy, low clean-up, cheap, and which make enough leftovers for at least two more meals, then I eat those leftovers for lunch as mentioned above. I'm in maintenance currently, but when cutting I eat at 1200kcal, so my meals also need to be lower in calories (hence intermittent fasting).

Many people are on the fence about this product, but Carbquik Baking Mix makes pretty solid biscuits. They’re a little crumbly/salty, but when you make them with cheese and garlic butter on top (like Red Lobster) they’re fantastic!

I enjoy the mix for pancakes and mug cakes too, I’ve also made a pseudo “pie crust” topping for chicken pot pie that worked well.

u/heisenberg747 · 9 pointsr/drunkencookery

I used to do it that way years ago but I've found better ways to add some class to instant ramen since then. If you're going to try it, I recommend using something other than American or cheddar. Go with something gooeyer like mozzarella or Swiss.

A better way to improve instant ramen is with egg, celery, bean sprouts, chili oil, sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, fresh green onions, cilantro, kimchi, or leftover meat. The absolute best thing you can do to improve your ramen game, however, is to buy higher quality instant ramen like Shin Ramyun (throw away the freeze-dried veggies if you have fresh ones, though). Find a local Asian market, they probably carry this stuff or something similar.

I always keep some chopped green onion and celery in the fridge because there's nothing that can't be improved by a little sprinkle of green onion and celery, not even ice cream. And any time I make steak, I always make an extra steak for drunken ramen that night or hungover ramen the next afternoon.

Here's how to make this masterpiece of an instant ramen. you will need the following:

-1 packet of Shin Ramyun

-a handful of chopped celery

-handful of chopped green onion

-1 TBSP kimchi

-1/4 tsp minced garlic

-Soy sauce


-1/2 handful of chopped white onion

-handful of bean sprouts

-leftover steak/chicken/pork/grizzly bear/whatever kind of meat you made last night, sliced like in the pic above

-one egg

-1/2 TBSP chili oil (I use this stuff)

-600mL of water (~2.5 cups)

Bring the water to a boil in a pot with a bottom no wider than 6 inches. While the water is coming to a boil, add the flavoring powder, and throw the freeze dried veggies in the trash where it belongs. Then add a splash of soy sauce, a good long squirt of sriracha, the garlic, and chili oil. When the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to medium low, and add the noodles and onion.

When the noodles are looking sort of close to done, take a spoon and scoop them to one side, and crack an egg into the space without noodles on the other side (being able to crack and open an egg one handed is very useful here) . Spoon the hot broth onto the egg until the white sets, then add your celery. The idea here is to get the egg and noodles to be done at the same time, but before the broth reduces too much.

Once your egg is cooked to your liking (which by law should be over-medium), pour everything into a bowl. Pour from the side of the pot opposite of where the egg is so it comes out last and lands on top of the noodles. Add your green onion, kimchi, bean sprouts, and meat slices (cold is fine, the soup will warm it up). Follow the Seinfeld Soup Nazi rules and eat this while sitting down, because it will make your knees buckle if you've never had anything but plain Top Ramen.

Hey, I train 6-7 days a week, too. You should have no problem getting 60-70g protein a day just from whole foods, not even taking into account a protein shake. Though that also depends on your overall calorie intake, which you didn't mention. Just putting something simple together, 95g hemp seeds, 430g lentils, and 290g buckwheat is 2000 calories, 330g carbs, 43g fat, and 96g protein. There is plenty of room to play around there to swap out foods and stuff and still hit your protein macros.

  1. Vegan totally tastes like ass. Funny enough, mixed berry is the only flavor I think is half decent. Taste-wise, my favorite is Sunwarrior. If you can afford Vega, you should be able to afford Sunwarrior. I like the chocolate flavor. Though my favorite is TrueNutrition's hemp/rice/pea blend. Tastes better than Vega, not as good as Sunwarrior, but it's much cheaper than either and tastes good enough for me. Favorite flavors are chocolate fudge brownie and mocha.

  2. Sorry no recipe suggestions, I don't eat soy/tofu, but I eat a lot of beans and I just eat them with some spices or something, nothing fancy. Check out explore asia products - they're based on beans and have a lot of protein. Also lentil pastas are pretty good.

  3. Nuts, seeds, beans/lentils - or processed foods based on these like tofu, seitan, tempeh, TVP, peanut butter, etc.

  4. "Keep in mind I'm a broke uni student." You probably shouldn't buy Vega then :) Sounds like you have the bases covered. On top of oats, I might also add buckwheat, quinoa, and rice. Peanut butter is also cheap, very calorically dense, and has a good amount of protein.

  5. I'm not iron deficient, but just check out high iron foods. Molasses is one I use as a sweetener for shakes and stuff and it has a lot of iron. Also I've heard good things about the iron fish.
u/diggdeserter · 8 pointsr/loseit

You should check this stuff out. Its peanut butter powder. Most of the fat has been removed. It takes just like peanut butter. I use it in shakes, eat a teaspoon plain, add it to greek yogurt, or mix with a little water to get a pretty good analog of real peanut butter without the calories. This shit is surprisingly good.

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, thinly sliced

1/4 cup lime juice

3 tablespoons PB2

1.5 tablespoons warm water

2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger

3 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

4 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 package FiberGourmet spaghetti

1 English cucumber, thinly sliced

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 cup carrots, thinly sliced

(plus whatever other vegetables you want in there: snow peas, broccoli, bean sprouts, etc.)

1 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped

*Toasted sesame seeds as garnish (if you're feeling fancy)

Combine the chicken, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, lime juice and 1 clove of crushed garlic in a bowl and let stand a few minutes to marinate. Coat a nonstick pan with a bit of vegetable oil spray and pan fry until just cooked through. Reserve on the side.

To make the sauce, combine the PB2 and warm water in a large bowl until it reaches a peanut butter consistency (may require more/less water). Once mixed, add ginger, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, fish sauce, red pepper flakes and salt. Whisk to combine and taste to make sure it's tasty.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in large pot of boiling salted water until tender. Rinse under cold water until cool, then drain really thoroughly and transfer to bowl with sauce. Toss to coat the noodles and let stand at room temperature until noodles have absorbed dressing, tossing occasionally, about 1 hour or more if you have the time. Stir in the chicken, vegetables and cilantro and toss again. Season with sesame seeds. This was delicious at room temperature, but turns it's even better cold the next day, (as I discovered eating the leftovers for lunch today).

I posted this in your LPT thread, I think it is worth reading so here.

A few years back, and even some today, I set out to find out how to make popcorn like at the movie theaters. Alton's recipe does not sound terrible and uses items most people will have on hand. However to make it better (read: more like movie theater popcorn) You will need to buy a few items for this.

  1. Gold Medal Flavacol popcorn salt
  2. Coconut oil for popcorn
  3. Whirley-Pop

    All total the items are under $40 (excluding popcorn) and all but the coconut oil will last a long time. Flavacol is a must have for this to work. I have not been able to find it locally near me. the 35oz carton will last you just about forever.

    The coconut oil is a bit on the messy side just because of the container, you can get different amounts which will come in a different container. I have noticed some differences in taste of some coconut oils and the one linked is the brand I am currently using.(note: Coconut oil solidifies at about 76F)

    If you are just toying with the idea of better popcorn, try Alton's method of popping. It cuts the total price in half and for a test run\proof of concept it should work. I have tested several poppers and settled with the whirley pop or similar design. Some outdoors shops sell these but charges about $10 more for them. Note: Yes it has a turn handle, but the gears are made of plastic, so do not hulk smash it.

    As for popcorn, not all popcorn is created equal. The artisan fancy colored stuff generally does not pop well in my experience. I have experimented with many different kinds and have mostly settled with Orville Redenbacher. This can be purchased off the shelf at most grocery stores or from Amazon. You can try others to find one you like better.

    As a note
    I do not have a set amount for any 1 ingredient. I just eyeball it, maybe one of these days I will get this down to a science with numbers and such. When starting out follow Alton's recipe but substitute the above items in it.

On that starter kit you mentioned... It's fine, but it isn't the best route if you think you might stick with this.

First up, read up on mixing by weight. /u/Botboy141 has a fantastic write up on it. It ends up being cheaper and faster long term versus mixing with syringes. Take into account that you should use different syringes for each flavor and you'll have to clean them after use... The cleaning murders the time mixing and that kit doesn't have many syringes, so you'll be cleaning a lot.

A break down for you on mixing by weight... It isn't 100% I'd bet, but it should be close enough.
Scale: 16.99 - this is the one I have, but the auto shut off is a friggin annoyance. Pick up the one Botboy141 recommends for the extra 14 or so dollars. So let's go with 30
Pipettes: 10.00 for 500 1ml.
10 for 200 3ml (you can probably find a better price) -
Dispensing bottles x2: 7.00
Pg: 13.00
Vg: 13.00
Nicotine: 100mg/120ml 19.00 50 30ml ldpe bottles: 11.00

$113, call it 130 with some shipping here and there.

Now add flavors, assuming you get 50 bucks of 8ml vials from wizard labs and you're running closer to 200. This will get you a good bunch of juice and the next time around you'll probably get 4oz bottles of your favorite flavors and maybe some more pg vg nic and possibly pipettes. It's worth the money, but syringes will be cheaper up start costs. You'd probably save about 70 bucks to start, but it'll cost you in frustration and time, which isn't worth the pain from all I remember with them.
Edit: I say wizard only because of the sample size of the vials... You can use bull city, tfa and lorann direct for 4oz and up on a bunch, or any other vendor really. But 50 in wizard with shipping will probably get you 25 or 30 vials.

Syringes will take away the scale and dispensing bottles and pipettes, so 60 bucks actually, and you'll add about 30 back in a bunch of 1ml, a few 3 or 5 and a couple of 10 for pg/vg and14ga blunt needles.

Hopefully that helps a bit. I can reformat it later on the computer if need be.

u/AlgebraicRhombus · 6 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Popcorn is the best! I finally caved and bought a stovetop popcorn maker and I've used it about 5 times in the last week already. Cooked in a little coconut oil and adding in some Flavacol it tastes just like it does in the theatre! And it costs so little but is really not that bad for you!

u/TranQLizer · 6 pointsr/ketorecipes


1.5 lbs Shrimp (<1g net carbs)

3 eggs (1.5g net carbs) - beaten

1/2 cup coconut flakes (4g net carbs) - ground or chopped

1/2 cup Carbquik (3g net carbs)

Salt and pepper to taste

~ 3 cups canola oil for frying. Can use other oils of course.


Peel/devein the shrimp while leaving the tail on

Add salt and pepper to coconut flakes to taste.We used 1tb each but found out it could have used more salt and pepper.

Preheat oil to 375 degrees fahrenheit

Coat shrimp in carbquick, then eggs, then carbquick again

Fry shrimp for 1-1.5 mins depending on size of shrimp

Pull shrimp out and place on some paper towels til the outside feels crispy

Coat shrimp in eggs and then the coconut flakes

Fry for another 2-3 mins, again depending on the size of shrimp

Total was ~8.5 net carbs for the ingredients. We didn't use up all the carbquick and coconut flakes so the actual net carbs are going to be less. Cocktail sauce had way too much sugar so we used Siracha as a replacement (~1g carb/tbs). Enjoy!

That's the first thought I had, too-- even with a close friend, I think I'd feel uncomfortable pointing out the nutritional content of the peanut butter, because it means that you were paying close attention to what she's eating which is really her business...

I have an idea, though. There's this thing called PB2-- it's powdered peanut butter, so it does away with a lot (all?) of the oil that causes peanut butter to be so fatty. It's only 45 calories for 2 tbsp, that's only 25% of the calories!! They're stocking it more and more at grocery stores near where I live and they have chocolate-pb flavor, too. Maybe you could mention that you never realized how fatty peanut butter was, but you heard about this product called PB2 and ask her if she's seen it at the grocery store...? Just a thought. Regardless, though, it's really good!

u/appBlu · 6 pointsr/Fitness

Speaking of smoothies, spinach with grapes and apple juice is awesome. I take handful of grapes, or around what a branch (idk grape terminology) would be, and chop up a bunch of spinach to throw it all into a blender. Blend for a few seconds and throw around a cup of apple juice in to neutralize the spinach flavor and you're golden. I tend to use a 16oz mason jar for my smoothies and throw them in the fridge. Typically they're only good for the next day so you can't prep a whole weeks worth but it's quick and easy if you prep all the ingredients in advance.

Another awesome mason jar prep that lasts for about 3-4 days in the fridge is oatmeal and this shit is good as hell. I typically use Quaker old fashion oats, almond milk, PB2, and berries or pumpkin filling.

u/schwagle · 6 pointsr/loseit

If/when you do start making protein shakes, PB2 Peanut Butter is an amazing addition. Adds a lot of peanut butter flavor for a very small amount of calories. I've heard that actually using the powder to make peanut butter is pretty damn good too, but I haven't tried that.

WSAYWT: Trickers. Top down. Little redboi popping out.

AOTD1: I love spring. Chicago can be shit for a few months of the year, but when it's above 50°F and sunny, this city is the best in the world (I'm biased).

AOTD2: I grew up in a very spice-averse home. My mother is a self-described "spice weeny" so I never really did hot foods. Then I met my wife and she put sriracha and other hot sauces on everything and I felt like I had to learn or she would never love me. And I did learn and now I love hot sauce. There are currently at least 4 different hot sauces in my house.

  • Cholula - classic vinegar red hot sauce (way better than tabasco if you ask me)
  • Sriracha - the Huy Fong kind, accept no immitations
  • Green Chilli Sauce - Some off brand from Marianos (midwest grocer chain)
  • Ardvark habenero - it's freaking great

    [Edit] I just remembered we did have one "spicy" thing in my house growing up. This local radio station put out a mustard (I have no idea why) and it was called "Bite Your Butt Mustard" and we bought a bunch. It was actually really good, like a slightly horseradishy honey mustard, but almost more honey than mustard.

Great!! The keto flu is much improved if you replenish your sodium, potassium and magnesium! So, make sure to drink a cup of broth every day this week...

And if you don't have magnesium or potassium supplements, try some Powerade Zero or sugar-free Gatorade to get those in your system.

Most of all, stick with it through the flu! For me it was only two or three days, and once I was through it I felt so great. More energy, more happiness, less need to sleep all the time... yay keto!

u/OldCivicFTW · 5 pointsr/fasting
  1. After lots of research, barring pre-existing medical conditions, I've never heard any arguments against it that don't fall along the lines of "You should eat, because I want to eat, and I don't want to feel like my way is wrong or for you to remind me how little self-discipline I have." LOL.
  2. Fasting won't slow down your metabolism, but losing weight will! A smaller body burns fewer calories--you can't go back to eating your previous diet after losing a bunch of weight, regardless of how you lose it. Also, as /u/Eat_Like_A_Snake pointed out, extreme calorie restriction isn't the same as fasting--it can cause severe problems.
  3. As you start weighing less, it takes less skeletal muscle to move your body around, and less heart muscle to pump blood around your smaller body, so unless you strength and aerobics-train, that muscle that you no longer need will disappear--this is true whether you're fasting or not! Your body does need some protein daily, but there are lots of non-muscle proteins--like that extra skin you don't need any more--for it to recycle! No, fasting is not a zombie. It will not eat your brain. Your body just spent years stocking away the perfect fuel for you (fat) to survive on in the absence of food--body fat even has fat-soluble vitamins in it! Why would it eat your brain instead?
  4. As long as it takes? Angus Barbieri did it for 382 days--and coincidentally, the weight stayed off.
  5. This article contains specifics on which nutrients you need to worry about during re-feeding, but in general, it goes like this: Keep the insulin index of your food down until your stomach has returned to a size that can hold enough calories to fuel your body. Low insulin-index foods are foods which are mostly made of fat, or which have barely any calories. That said, I broke my last 21-day fast with Thanksgiving dinner. LOL. As Dr. Fung mentions, re-feeding syndrome is something which was identified in severely malnourished concentration camp victims, and is probably not a concern for healthy people.
  6. Your body needs protein, and that extra skin is a source of protein--so most of the time, fasting minimizes the loose skin, but occasionally, I'll read about someone who fasted and still ended up with loose skin, so maybe genetics is another factor, or maybe they're not fasting long enough to trigger autophagy.
  7. Ehhh, most medical professionals are knee-jerk scared of anything unfamiliar just like normal humans, and fasting isn't mainstream... yet. So you're highly unlikely to find one that will be okay with this. Before-and-after hormone/endocrine/nutrient panels might be interesting, though!
  8. I'm on Day 40, and here's my list of supplements: Garden of Life Multivitamin, Zhou Lyte Up (as needed), Now Bone Strength, Iodoral cut into quarters, and L-Theanine as-needed when the elevated adrenaline gets to be too much. All of these are fine on an empty stomach. Some cheaper alternatives I've tried are: Morton's Lite Salt is about half sodium chloride/half potassium Chloride; bulk Potassium Bicarbonate is super-cheap and flavorless; and you can take an Epsom Salt bath to get your magnesium. Like most other fasters, my fasting guru is Dr. Jason Fung. He has all sorts of YouTube videos, as well as the Intensive Dietary Management website, and a couple pretty famous books.

    More Notes:

  • The maximum amount of calories you can convert from fat per day is kg of fat * 69.4692 or lbs of fat * 31.5053. It's possible for a person to not have enough body fat to meet their calorie needs, so they'd have to supplement dietary fat. Body fat supplies around 7,717 calories per kg or 3500 per lb. Using this math, if you lost more weight than the calories you burned according to your Fitbit or whatever, or more than your theoretical maximum, it's probably either glycogen (aka "water weight") or food in your digestive tract. I keep losing that extra weight until Day 12-ish.

Love the joke, but for real, the alton brown method is awesome and gives you real movie theater popcorn at home. (I LOVE movie theater popcorn and microwave shit just isn't the same.)

In a big metal bowl on the store and a couple spoons of coconut oil. Throw in one kernal, when it pops it's ready. Throw in the rest of the premeasured popcorn and flavacol, the stuff they use at the theaters, and then seal with aluminum foil poked with holes to vent and then shake it jiffypop style till it just stops popping.

Perfect pop every time, transfer to another bowl and drizzle butter on top if you want.

One important thing to remember about artificial sweeteners, that not many people seem to know:

Part of the "non-caloric" nature of most artificial sweeteners is that they ARE caloric, they're just several hundred times better at activating sweetness sensing taste receptors, so you can use an effectively acaloric amount. However, because there is so little actual physical mass, if they want to distribute in a granular form, they need to include a bulking agent. Currently, everyone is using CORN STARCH.

This means that roughly 1/3 the volume of of granular sweeteners is MALTODEXTRIN, aka pure sugar. A packet of Splenda has about 3 calories, and a cup of granular Splenda has around 150.

If you use a lot of non-caloric sweetener, either account for this or switch to liquid (In which the sweetener is just dissolved in water).

u/msangeld · 4 pointsr/ketorecipes

Whip Cream is easy to make, I sweeten it with Ez-Sweets. What I like to do is get some berries (your choice, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries..etc..etc..etc), and make it into a compote.

  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries (I used frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • sweetener to taste

  1. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until some of the berries have collapsed and the liquid is syrupy, 10-15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    You can make a batch of them and store them in a mason jar in your fridge for later.

    Then you can make the whip cream

  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of liquid sucralose or your choice of sweetener whatever is equal to 1 cup of sugar

  1. combine all whipped cream ingredients in a bowl and use a whisk attachment for your hand mixer, blend until it forms Peaks. Store in a tupperware dish in the fridge

    You can also store this for later.

    Then you can put the compote in a bowl and top it with whip cream. You can also add some crushed nuts so it's sorta like a parfait. The quick part comes in when you prepare it ahead of time to store for later. Then just dish it out when you want some.

Wow this got wordy! I'm gonna put a little TL;DR at the top here for easy reference:

Pork shoulder blade roasts or steaks are relatively cheap compared to other meat, are delicious and are great for keto. Chicken thighs are also fantastic. I use Nu-Salt in everything to make sure I get more potassium. I sweeten most things with Ez-Sweetz. I explain in more detail how I use the pork shoulder and the chicken breasts below.


I buy pork shoulder blade steaks, because they're relatively cheap and have lots of fat, which helps me with my ratios, and they're delicious. I cut them into manageable portions and cook them up for breakfast most mornings (I learned to cook them the way Gordon Ramsay does in this video, ignore the sweet and sour peppers he also cooks as they are loaded with carbs, amd go easy on the garlic, but this is a great way to cook pork chops), it's absolutely fantastic. Not so good if you're also watching your calories, but pork shoulder is a really tasty, really cheap cut of meat.

Anyway, my go-to breakfast is usually a portion of pork shoulder blade steak, about 6 small frozen brussels sprouts microwaved on a plate under a bowl for four minutes with butter, salt and pepper, and a couple of eggs fried up on the side.

Also chicken thighs, which I lay in 13x9 baking pan, sprinkle salt, pepper, rosemary and other delicous stuff over them, cover in foil and bake it for about an hour at 350... LEt it cool, remove the bones (keep the skin and fat in there, just chop it and mix it all together) and then you've got chicken to use in stuff. It's very fatty, but again, that's part of maintaining the keto ratio. I usually will portion that out into zipper-seal sandwich bags, about 200g in each bag, and freeze it. Then I use it to make quick lunches, I mix one portion with about 200g of broccoli or green beans and about 20g of cheese, add seasoning, and freeze it in a microwaveable container.

Aside from that, I always keep some potassium salt (I use Nu-Salt, which is carried in my local grocery store near the salt) on hand to help make sure I am getting enough potassium, I add some to anything I add salt to. Be aware, by itself it tastes just awful... But if you feel like you need some extra potassium, it does the trick. I always use extra if I am getting back into keto after cheating.

My go-to sweetener of choice is Ez-Sweetz, it just makes stuff sweeter without adding any other flavors (I tried stevia and it just was not good in my coffee), and one drop of the stuff is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of sugar. I haven't ever seen it in a store, but you can get it from amazon.

Super simple, although you do need an ice cream maker.

DO NOT OVERBLEND THIS OR IT WILL SEPARATE INTO BUTTER!! Blend it on the lowest setting your blender has.

Into a blender put the following:

3 scoops of zero carb isopure (this is where much of your flavor and nutrition come from, any flavor works)

2 pints of heavy cream

1 pint of Kalifa Farms 0 Carb unsweetened almond milk

2 teaspoons of Liquid Splenda You can also use liquid stevia or another liquid 0 carb sweetener.

2 TBSP Food Grade Glycerine

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if you are using vanilla, chocolate, cookies and cream, toasted coconut, or any of other cream flavors. For fruit flavors like Alpine Punch exclude this.

Run this all through your ice cream maker, put it into the freezer overnight, and you're good to go.

Sriracha is cock sauce. In all honestly it's actually fucking delicious cock sauce.

u/PulpHero · 4 pointsr/Military

A miniature sewing kit. When you’re running missions outside, clothes tend to get ripped, and with only limited numbers, life can get rough. A sewing kit helps.
Spirarcha chili sauce. If your soldier likes spicy foods, send them this. It’s spicy, it has flavor, and it will last them a few months.

Socks and underwear. Send them hiking socks and replacement pairs of underwear. Clothes tend to get gross and if they don’t have laundry, sometimes it is for the best to toss out old underclothes and wear new ones.

Beef jerky.

Trail mix of various types.

Great ideas for one-time gifts. These range from relatively cheap, to pricy and are a great surprise to a soldier stationed anywhere. I’ve included links to the products to give you an idea of what they look like, though don’t take those links as the only/cheapest place to find them:

Adjustable two-point sling. On base they have to carry around a weapon everywhere, and on mission they’ll be going some serious distance with it in their hands. If they are still using an Army-issue plain sling life is going to get a bit annoying. An adjustable two-point sling makes things more convenient and lets them ready a weapon to fire without an awkward movement on a mission. Ignore this if they are using a machine-gun, because those use heavy duty slings. Various companies make these, I prefer the VTAC, but they are all similar in make.

Surefire Earplugs. On mission, soldiers are supposed to wear earplugs, but many don’t because its uncomfortable and often all they are issued are cheap low qualifty plugs. Surefire earplugs conform to the shape of the ear and they are designed to allow someone to still be able to hear conversation level noise while protecting from high level noise. These are great.

Head-Loc helmet straps. One of the greatest pains is a helmet that won’t stay secure. The Head-Loc straps stay tighter and make the helmet so comfortable that you forget you’re wearing it.

PMAGs. Magpul plastic magazines, or PMAGs are high quality replacements for metal GI magazines. Army issued metal magazines are often used for years past the date that they should be retired and they are prone to feeding issues (I won’t get into the details) and PMAGs fix many of those issues and give a soldier more confidence in their equipment. A combat load is 7 magazines, so don’t feel the need to buy more than that, and even one or two PMAGs is greatly appreciated. Ignore if they are using a machinegun.

Head-lamp. Walking around an outpost at night is tricky and Afghanistan can get dark, a head-lamp is a great help to keep your soldier from stubbing their toe or walking into barbed wire. Get only with some kind of red or blue light filter.

Mechanix gloves. Soldiers need to wear gloves on mission and they tend to get torn up, a replacement pair of mechanixs gloves is a good choice.

u/firingallcylinders · 4 pointsr/loseit

Most of the formulations I've ever purchased are advertised as "salt lite" or "half salt", meaning that they are half potassium chloride and half sodium chloride.

I've tried the Nu-Salt or the Salt Substitute which is all potassium chloride and it tastes wrong to me. But that's just me. ;)

u/carbaholic · 4 pointsr/ketogains

You only need extra sodium in the first few weeks while going keto/low carb because your kidneys are dumping water/sodium during this adaption period.

Regardless of the above information, I still supplement with extra sodium and potassium because I personally perform better with higher amounts. I put salt in my coffee, and put Morton Lite Salt (salt AND potassium) on all of my food and into my water.

I also do 2-4 epsom salt baths, for recovery and magnesium

u/microthought · 4 pointsr/fasting

Initial 24hr fast while transitioning off carbs left me feeling a little woozy.

Later, when fasting for 48 hours coming from ketosis, I managed to work out hard (ie. running for 30 minutes with heart-rate 180-200bpm) both fasting days without any problems.

Sounds like you may want to be prepared with Light-Salt saying your diet sounds awfully sodium light, and the extra potassium is also good for your heart when water fasting.

u/mg521 · 4 pointsr/QuittingTianeptine

Maybe you need to be taking higher doses 2-3 times a day then. Also, here is what I use because I hate the taste and filling up capsules too: Oblate Discs - Japanese Edible Film, 200pcs

You’ll really thank me for that haha. I do 4 of those and fill them with like 3 grams each. It does take a few times to get used to it and you’ll struggle at first, but I’m a pro at it now. You basically just have to roll them up into a little balloon and twist the top, dip them in water then quickly put them in the back of your throat and wash it down. I barely taste a thing and it’s infinitely better than any other Kratom delivery mechanism. I got this idea from the Kratom sub and it’s a game changer!

u/85218523 · 4 pointsr/kratom

I switched to these edible films. Don't taste anything at all, and it's the same exact affect you get from TNW.

You can essentially make a batch like you would do with caps and just pop a little edible balloon anywhere with a bottle of water. When you're on the go or lazy, you don't have to worry about measuring, making a mess, getting a cup to toss the kratom in your mouth, bad taste, etc.

I use to do TNW for a few months, but it obviously tastes disgusting and leaves a lingering taste, sometimes you gag when you toss it into your mouth, etc. Switched to the edible films and will never go back to that disgusting shit. Don't get why people torture themselves with that gross shit when this is 100x better with no downsides.

u/meijin2k · 4 pointsr/StackAdvice

I don't know if this will help you, but check out "Oblate Edible Discs" on Amazon. I just got an order of these in and while they are a bit "interesting" to get use to, they do work.

u/AnonyJustAName · 4 pointsr/keto

Percentages are more useful for people on medical keto, say epileptics. Here, it is more typical to track in grams.

People on here tend to have the most success keeping to 20 g net carbs per day which is carbs minus fiber (in US). Outside US the label typically already reflects the math, is my understanding.

So, you can eat anything that fits into your macros. The calculator in the sidebar is a good one, set carbs to 20 g and activity to sedentary, most folks do a 20% deficit.

If you want to eat pinto beans, the rest of your day has to be pretty carb free. Black coffee and a steak for your other meal would fit nicely. ;)

As an alternative, Black Soybeans (have only seen them canned) are very low in net carbs and are great in burritos, tacos, etc.

u/latigidigital · 4 pointsr/texas

Protip: you can make keto Tex-Mex.

Puffy tortillas

At 20 carbs or less a day, I’m down 74 lbs since the end of spring, and I don’t even exercise or really even try to run a calorie deficit. You can literally just get trays of Whataburger patties with cheese, fried eggs, and all that jazz.

Check out /r/ketorecipes and /r/keto for extra. There’s a recipe for just about every form of Mexican food. (Bonus tip: baby corn has no carbs, and fiber doesn’t count, so you can get the HEB low-carb tortillas if you’re feeling lazy.)

Edit: ps - black soybeans have 1 net carb and can be mashed and refried like pintos. Watch out for added carbs in shredded cheese and bacon, but both are A-OK otherwise.

u/grewestr · 4 pointsr/grilling

Not OP, but I make wings regularly on the kettle. For regular wings:
-Set up kettle like OP, coals on one side
-Set all wings skin side down on a sheet with paper towel under it to dry the skin
-Sear wings skin side down over coals for 1-3 minutes until slightly charred
-Flip and sear other side for 1 minute
-Transfer to other side of grill skin side up
-Place lid on with vent open and directly over the wings
-Wait 5-20 minutes depending on how you like the wings done then toss them in sauce.

This gives the best of both worlds. A nice charred sear that makes the skin super tender and a indirect cooking period to crisp everything up. I usually marinade half of them in a mixture of Sabauce and Aardvark for some extra flavor. I've seen people have really good results using the Vortex as well.

u/RruinerR · 4 pointsr/backpacking

Ramen packet.
MCD pancake butter or two.
Fresh greenbeans/sugar snap peas (lots of grocery stores have them in loose bulk. Enough for X meals)
Sriracha packet (panda Express has them. Just ask do t have to buy anything)

Can do this as a soup or drained noodles. Add water , boil with sliced carrots and beans/peas. Few mins depending on your taste for softness. Add noodles cook the 3 min for them.
Optional: drain water (keep for soup)
Add ramen flavor packet and butter. Mix up and eat. (Sriracha as needed)

Garlic powder (very little) is also good but not required. Can make your own seasoning as well and ditch the ramen seasoning. I'd say play around at home either way. Lots of veggie options out there that are light and will keep a day or two.

Also, there are lots of ramens out there besides the basic ones at normal grocery stores. My city has a pretty big vietnamese community and their grocery stores have some pretty fancy ones. I'll find and link some as they are on amazon as well. These have 3, 4, 5 packets of seasonings/oils/spices and are pretty dang good (I tend to add veggies to most)

Dont like/want noodles? Rice works too. I'm sure there are other options as well. Cant think of any at the moment.

Oh yeah. Dried mushrooms. The asian market or Amazon should have those too. Great to add. Add towards end. Don't need too much hydration. this ones spicy!

Amazon has been where I have been getting my vg, almost done with my 7th liter. awesome quality and decent price. also the 2 free day shipping is awesome I have 2 gallons on the way and still ordered an extra liter off amazon the next day just in case i run out of vg today (amazon vg arriving today :D ) so i can fulfill all my weekend orders.

Candy cane is basically straight peppermint isn't it? found a candy cane flavor anyways haven't used it, but FW has some pretty decent flavors in their selection.

There are a few companies with straight pina colada flavoring, but out of them all, I have really started to love Inawera, as every single flavoring i have ordered of theirs has been top notch. Starting to become my new fav vendor, i just hate the bottles can be semi leaky (had them leak a slight bit once during shipping, was no problem, not much wasted, just got it all over my fingers). I still haven't had time to test out "peanuts" yet, but every other INW flavor i have is simply amazing and each one has made it into some very solid recipes of mine. Link to the INW pina colada watch out tho, as they have super concentrated flavorings and some only require less than 1% to hit where i think they taste great. over flavor and you will mute the flavor or create harshness. Try it at 0.5% and move up from there. My guess is for it as a single flavor, it might need to be bumped up to over 1%, but start out low first, then work your way up.

Flavor links are from BCV, which is an awesome company. RTS vapes is about a 10 min drive from me (can't go pick up tho, which sucks) and it only takes a day to ship to me, but sometimes they take a few days to process and also they don't have the nice selection of different vendors like bcv does.

Just realized the candy cane is outta stock at bcv, my bad, but they re stock flavors pretty quick. maybe check out here also since they have candy cane in stock. they also carry most other brands, so a pina colada flavor should be no problem, once again i would reccomend INW even tho ive never tried their pina colada. just some top notch shit they have. Be warnerned tho, it was my first time ordering from them this past weekend, so i dont know how fast they ship or anything. Also, they had a pretty massive sale (40% off) this weekend so that might make processing happen a lil slower than normal. link to inw pina colada on ecigexpress

just don't load up on tons of flavors without meeting the minimum requirement for free shipping. the more stuff ya get, generally the more shipping will be if you dont qualify for free shipping. i hope this helped, happy mixing!

Fresher? When I worked at Showcase Cinemas, we would pop our popcorn days (up to 5) in advance, throw it in huge plastic bags, then bring it down and push hot air through it at the concession stands to warm it up before serving.

Wanna know why that shit tastes so good? Flavocol.

u/Ziinc · 4 pointsr/Winnipeg

u/soullessparadigm · 4 pointsr/PS4

And here's the part where I get flooded with downvotes from those who haven't embraced the palate-ial wonder of lightly burned popcorn paired with some melted "real" butter and melted parmigiano reggiano, served with some Flavacol popcorn salt.

Don't be a douche and burn popcorn in your office/workspace, but you owe it to yourself to at least try a batch of what I mentioned at home. Just use something like a microplane grater to layer some decent parmigiano reggiano throughout the bowl of popcorn, add the melted (salted) butter and then microwave the doctored-up popcorn for about 15-20 seconds. Finish it off with the Flavacol stuff and enjoy the complex, slightly charred (in a good way) taste of what's certain to become your new snack addition.

u/ajbiz11 · 4 pointsr/Target

It's coconut oil! The butter flavor actually comes from a salt called Flavacol. And here's an idea of the yellow coconut oil. It has butter flavoring too, but most of it's in the flavacol

Also, your mushroom kernels should only be used with caramel corn! Standard kernels for normal popcorn!

Wikipedia suggests that Italians use an oil made from olive oil and Calabrian chilis:

...I don't know exactly what sort of hot oil's expected for the Roberta's "bee sting pizza" you showed, but if I had to hazard a guess it would be that.

Honestly, I suspect that any sort of chili oil made from any chilis in any oil will work, if the intent is just to add a little heat (in addition to the hot soppresata.)

You can make your own chili oil by heating up some vegetable oil and then pouring it over dried chili flakes. I've been known to heat up cheap olive oil (a highly-processed one is best for this, not extra-virgin) and pour it over "pizza pepper" flakes to make it. (You have to use a sufficient quantity of chili flakes to keep the oil from incinerating them. Note that it may come out shockingly spicy -- after it cools down you can mix a little of the chili oil with plain oil to dilute it.) It's a common homemade Chinese condiment, so a Google search on "chili oil" will turn up many recipes and tutorial videos, some plain, and some with extra ingredients.

Here's a (rather different) store-bought Chinese hot oil topping I like on my pizzas:

Stores that carry Chinese products should have it -- the brand name is "Lao Gan Ma" and the specific product is "Spicy Chili Crisp". It's relatively mild as chili oils go (I could eat it all by itself!) and it's loaded with crunchy things (such as black beans) and salt and MSG. It's a whole bunch of comfort-food flavors all at once. But it's probably not remotely like what Roberta's pizza uses.

Short answer if you just freeze yeast the freezing water solidifies and punctures cell wells, killing most of the yeast.

Long answer if you add a 50/50 solution of (water or beer) with food grade glycerin the water will get cold but never freeze.

My process:

Harvest yeast- overbuilding a starter is the easiest way or you could harvest and wash your yeast.

Decant Beer from your starter or use water and half fill a 1 pt mason jar and top off the rest with food grade glycerin. Boiling at this point is probably unnecessary but I do it anyway just to make sure no bugs get transferred in. Cool.

I then spray everything I use with Starsan and then dip everything I’m using in to the boiling water.

I use Soda Preforms but will switch to 1.5 ounce glasses once I burn through my preforms because I can boil them killing anything and not have to worry about melting plastic plus they’re cheaper.

I fill them halfway with my Decanted Yeast Slurry and let it settle. You want the settled yeast to be about half of the Preform which is approximately 100 billion cells. I then Decant excess liquid off and top off with your 50/50 (Water or starter beer) and glycerin.

Cap/Label place in an insulated bag with an ice pack to protect from freezing/thaw cycles and place in the freezer.

u/LifeinParalysis · 3 pointsr/1200isplenty

I got you! The cooking spray and flavacol will give you an authentic butter experience with way less calories. Quick spray kernels and sprinkle some in with your popcorn before you pop and then top it off with some more spray once it's done to your desired butterness.

The bad thing is that Flavacol doesn't come in small, and the container they send will last you 5 years of heavy popcorn abuse. But it's seriously the same stuff they use at the movie theater

Three minutes later, you've got a pot full of popcorn!

Fellow instant-noodle lover here. If you find your local Asian market - the legit one that Asian immigrants go to - you can find a ton of stuff to kick up your ramen. Cheap veg, we're talking 3 lb bags of baby bok choy for $2, fitty-cent green onion, and hella cheap ground pork, something like $2/lb. Also, delicious tinned fish (under $2).

But the best shit is the sauce aisle.

Good ramen comes with several packets: freeze dried veg, powder seasoning, and the grease packet. The ten cent stuff only comes with the powder. To make up for the grease packet, you can get either sesame oil or chili oil. You can get a tub of curry paste for under $3 and make curry noodles; one tub should yield 30-40 servings. Or Korean gojuchang.

This is my favorite and it's around $4 a jar in the market.

You can also save up any fat left from cooking, like bacon drippings or chicken fat, freeze it, and use it to silk up your ramen.

It makes a ten cent bag into at least a $2.50 bag.

u/polyethylene108 · 3 pointsr/ramen

My technique is not as posh as proper Japanese ramen, but it may give you a start. I tend to use something like Nongshim Shin in a flavour I like. First, I soft boil 2 eggs. Then I prepare veg like Pak Choi, spring onions, peas, asparagus, baby corn, and perhaps some sauteed mushrooms or cabbage, and maybe some water chestnuts for texture. I then boil water and add noodles and spice packets followed by my veg (excluding water chestnuts and things that needn't be cooked). I rinse and drain and peel my eggs. I pour my cooked ramen and veg into a big bowl and then top with the split boiled eggs, sauteed mushrooms and cabbage, spring onions and something like Shichimi Togarashi.You can also add grilled or stirfried meat to your taste. I'm allergic to meat, so I tend to keep it simple. You can use different kinds of seaweed, too. I like to soak arame in cold water while my eggs boil and then sprinkle this on top with my other toppings. The only limit to what you can do with your ramen is your imagination. The Wagamama noodle cookbook is quite awesome and you should be able to get it in America, too. It'll give you some starting points. Good luck and enjoy!

I made a trip to my local asian supermarket and picked up a few different kinds of instant ramen to try. I was looking for this one to try as well, but they didn't have any at this particular supermarket. I have another asian supermarket nearby that has a bigger variety of instant ramen and I plan on going there in the next few weeks. I would love to try other brands not pictured here, so let me know your favorite instant ramen that you think I should try. If possible link some pictures so I know what to look for at the store.

saporo ichiban miso this is one of my favorite instant ramen, I buy it all the time, it's so good

shin ramyun spicy This is my favorite instant ramen. This was the first instant ramen I tried that wasn't maruchan and I fell in love. This led me to try other brands from the asian store that I wouldn't normally have tried.

My new favorite discovery is black bean spaghetti. I saw it at Costco and figured it was worth a shot.

At first, it reminded me of rubber bands. But then I got used to it and realized it's actually pretty good! It's much more filling than regular pasta, and can be used in a lot of different dishes. It's a nice break from spaghetti squash!

u/Common_Scents · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

Pasta with Protein > Carbs.

It's expensive AF on Amazon, but look at your local grocery stores for this. I found it at mine for relatively cheap. More expensive than regular pasta, but worth it for the macros.

Spices and condiments should always get a priority. Try to add something to your inventory each month, so you can have variety even when it's the end of the month and you are down to half a case of ramen and some rice.

  • Sriracha - "I put that *** on everything.
  • Sweet Chili-garlic sauce - what god intended for chicken. You can make your own - but you can find good ones at any decent supermarket or Asian corner store.
  • Chili-garlic paste. Deliciously intense.
  • Curry (Sweet Madras Curry is fairly safe, other curry blends can rip your lips off. In a good way, but be warned.)
  • Balsamic vinegar. Great for saute', salads, etc. Adds a lot of flavor at a fairly low price per serving.
  • Balsamic reduction. Seemingly expensive, but it's not. It's concentrated, rich, deep and sweet; goes on everything from meat to ice cream.
  • Garlic powder - Along with salt and pepper, it's a basic.

    So, for that naked pasta - 2 or 3 tbs of margarine or extra-virgin olive oil, a small clove of garlic, pressed, a drizzle of balsamic reduction ~an eighth of a teaspoon, be scant with it - microwave in a container with a cover until just hot, blend by shaking. Drizzle over your veggies and pasta. No need to use it all at once - it will keep nicely.

    Ok, now I'm hungry. Which reminds me - broke college students should probably get into lacto-fermentation. Saurkraut, kimchee, etc all add tremendous nutrition and flavor at very low cost. /r/fermentation has you covered. The big win here is that you can scoop up all the marked-down produce and ferment it. It's also a thing that complements /r/freeganism. Saurkraut is particularly easy and I promise you - if you think it's kinda sour and yet bland, it doesn't have to be. And it's cheap like borcht.

Just about any decient grocery store should carry sriracha. It should be right next to the soy sauce and other oriental foods. If not, here ya go.

u/Terra99 · 3 pointsr/Pizza

Last week I was discussing the idea of having a sushi pizza. I kicked around the idea a little bit and decided I would do a Shaggy Dog inspired pizza. Normal pizza crust with dragon sauce (Kewpie and Rooster sauce) and cream cheese base. I did a very thin coating of sushi rice in the sauce (I'd leave this out next time) and then some green onions and shrimp. I did just enough Mozzarrella cheese to make everything gel together (about 1/3 of the amount I'd normally use). After it came out of the oven, I added slices of avacado, cucmbers and sprinkled with shredded fake crab. I found it tasted best if you let it sit for about 10 minutes.

u/jordanlund · 3 pointsr/WTF

The sauces are pretty easy to find, any Asian grocery will have them or any grocery store with a decent Asian section.

Sriracha sauce

Thai peanut sauce For some reason Amazon only has this in a 12 pack. I'm actually OK with that. ;^)

Well, you can take things to help with the electrolytes, as you should.

You wanna double your Sodium intake. You can use Lite Salt as that has sodium AND potassium in it, and a pretty good amount of potassium as well. Better than most supplements anyway. And then you will wanna buy a magnesium citrate. I also use chicken boullion cubes for sodiumm, i put it in a coffee cup and put hot water in it, then drink it. Tastes like soup kinda.

Its not about "going hard", its not a crash diet. You just figure out your macros and stick to it. Let your body handle the rest.

And no stuff like Powerade has electrolytes in it but nearly enough.

u/ThisIsMyKetoUsername · 3 pointsr/keto

If you're in the states, look for [this] ( It's cheaper if you've got a grocery store that carries it. This has your potassium as well as a a little magnesium, but I don't think the magnesium is that physioactive. It helps me a LOT more than the salt that I used before. Just add a bit, I've heard between a 1/4 tsp and a full tsp, to your bottle of water and, if you want, add some vitamin fortified water additive, like [Mio] ( I like this one with the stevia and the additional B vitamins. It's a wonder drink for me!! But, if you're feeling ok, then go with what's been working for you!

u/BasqueInTheSun · 3 pointsr/keto

You may want to add a pinch of salt to your water. LiteSalt is awesome and I use it daily. You could also try that pink salt that's super popular.


A general tip about adding salt to water. Don't add so much that the water tastes salty. That's way too much. Only add enough so that the water tastes a little off. Like a different type of tap water, if that makes sense.

u/FlyingPasta · 3 pointsr/intermittentfasting

Broscientifically, potassium is supposed to balance out the sodium intake.

Why do you think you're craving so much salt? It makes sense to want salt after a 48hr fast with lots of water, because you're flushing the necessary sodium out of your body. Do you feel worse if you reduce sodium? Is it purely a craving?

You can also buy this reduced sodium/added potassium salt that I use:

Yo you tried to snort it!? I commend your effort but that's a huge waste of time and god knows what it did to your nose. Not trying to be rude, but don't do that again man, yikes.

Have you thought of parachuting it? Amazon sells these little edible papers you can wrap your dose up in and swallow in one shot, no taste at all. People use them for Kratom a lot.

I forget what they're called, but if you're interested, I'll look them up for you. I'm on mobile rn or I'd just link to them.

Also, if you're trying to taper down, I've heard anecdotal reports of people cutting their large doses in half with minimal withdrawals. Kratom also helps with the withdrawal while tapering when taken on a as needed basis (you can get addicted to it too, so there's that).

Best of luck man.


These are what I was talking about:

You can put the dose inside, seal it with a lil water, and swallow it whole.

Edit: these are way better than capsules because they dissolve almost instantly. Just long enough for you to make a parachute and gulp down with a beverage of your choice. Way better bioavailability than caps too IMO. Takes a little bit of practice but you will never t&w again.

u/geoncrank · 3 pointsr/kratom

These oblate discs are the best. They completely dissolve. don't try to do more than 2g per disc, or you risk it getting stuck in your throat. If that happens, you chug water until you get it to dissolve, or you run out of breath and cough it out.

Muuuccchh easier than doing a toss and wash, IMO.

u/ItalianICE · 3 pointsr/kratom

Faster onset and a slight increase or change in effects BUT I have found the effects wear off quicker. The capsules take longer to feel but if your using kratom for energy or pain relief the slower drip of energy might actually be more desirable. The quality of effects from your kratom drink will also depend on whether or not you make a tea and strain it or drink the powder. I have found straining to hurt the effects slightly. I have gotten into oblate discs recently.

Black soy beans can be used in place of black beans anywhere you like. They are the only keto-friendly bean that I know of. (An equivalent amount of black beans would have 24g net carbs.) Put them in some keto-friendly chili with beefy crumble to up the protein, eat them with tofu/eggs in a scramble, make a Mexican-inspired bean dip out of them and eat with veggies or cheese chips... Tons of options for them! :)

I always got this brand, and I found it at health food stores as well as big chain grocery stores that have a decent natural foods selection.

u/ketokate · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes

I buy them from Amazon, but they aren't prime eligible and you have to buy a whole dozen at once. I did it, though, because I use them in a lot of recipes:

u/fuzzysqurl · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes


  • 1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs. Cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 c. Shredded Cheese (I personally used Cheddar)
  • 1/4 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 qt. Chicken Stock
  • 3 cans Eden Organic Black Soy Beans. Eden Organic is probably the most accessible brand but you can use whatever you find. Note: Black soy beans taste more like traditional black beans rather than yellow soy beans.


    Put olive oil, onion, and chicken into large pan on the stove. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside. Add garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add every other ingredient and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and let cook uncovered for 20 minutes or so.


    You can increase the amount of cheese in the recipe to help thicken the sauce a little. You can also top with more cheese or sour cream after serving.

    I didn't have any jalapeno or other peppers on hand but you can definitely add them in for extra heat. Speaking of heat, this chili does have a bit of a kick to it so if you're sensitive to spice just leave out or reduce the amount of Cayenne Pepper.

    Finally, you could serve with pork rinds or something if you wish to have a crunch.


    Makes about 11 cups of food, which I estimate to be about 6 servings (I took about 1 cup out to eat. Ended up going back for seconds)

Try a ghost pepper salsa before you get into the extracts Try Jardines, or Mrs. Renfro's ghost pepper salsa before you try something like [The Source] (

Only use 1-2 drops of the source per large amount of food (like a whole pot of chili / crock-pot / 4 lbs of hamburger meat.) Some places will let you try a drop on a burger or a wing if they have it, but they make you sign a health waiver.

I'm in Canada, so I'm not 100% sure, but it does look like if all else fails, you can order it on Amazon.

Amazon also appears to have the hoosier hill farm powdered peanut butter, which is a LOT cheaper than the PB2 brand, but I haven't tried it so I can't speak to the quality, but it does have good reviews and unlike PB2 which has added salt and sugar, the hoosier hill farm stuff is literally just peanuts.

Both of those are fulfilled by amazon as well, so not some third party that advertises one price and then charges twice that much in shipping. - hoosier hill farm - pb2

u/Fenix159 · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

A lot of people use PB2.

Far as chocolate, I use cocoa nibs, pale chocolate malt and some C120 to get a lovely chocolate flavor. Lactose enhances the perception there as well. But yes, you can also use extract if you want for the chocolate.

Edit: Added link to PB2 to facilitate lazy learning.

Your diet is going to make the biggest difference in your weight loss. They say weight loss is 85% diet, and it's true. I too have lost 120 pounds and I honestly think exercise is unnecessary. I run now, but I do that for overall health. Here's a few things I eat on a weekly basis.


  • 8oz.non-fat greek yogurt with fruit (usually a banana)

  • 1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, handful of baby spinach, 1 banana (or other fruit). Blend.

  • Oatmeal

  • 1 1/2 T. Peanut butter on whole wheat toast


  • 2 Tuna sandwiches. 1 can tuna, 1T. non-fat mayo, 1T. mustard, 1T. relish. Put onto 2 of these things. I usually eat this with celery dipped in PB2 and a side salad of mixed greens tossed in low-cal vinegarette.

  • Grill a shitload of chicken breasts and keep them in your fridge. I'll heat up a giant bowl of broccoli and throw a chopped-up chicken breast on there and eat it with sriracha. You can also put a breast onto 4 corn tortillas with some homemade guac and pico de gallo. Cook up some quinoa and eat it with the chicken.

  • Beans. Make low-cal chili with super-lean ground turkey and some canned beans - tons of fiber and protein to keep you full.

    I tend to pick a protein source and build a meal around that. I try to always add as many veggies as I can, usually in the form of a side salad or celery.

    I HIGHLY recommend downloading MyFitnessPal on your phone (assuming you have a smartphone) and log everything you eat. I winged it for the first year but the app makes it so much easier.

    Something I've recently fallen in love with - sweet potatoes. I scrub them clean and bake for an hour @ 400. Cut it in half, sprinkle a little salt or some cinnamon and eat it. Great desert, full of good shit, and it tastes delicious.

    There are a ton of things you can eat that are good for you. Lots of other fish, tons of ways to cook/eat chicken and turkey, beans, etc.

I get an iced dopio espresso with a splash of breve and then I put in a couple of drops of EZ Sweets. There are like 5 grams of carbs per 2 tablespoons of breve, but I just can't quite kick the habit in favor of full cream or none at all. Still a hell of a lot better than a caramel machiato.

u/kindall · 3 pointsr/keto

Almost all dry artificial sweetener has starch-based bulking agents to make them measure roughly equivalent to sugar, because the artificial sweeteners are hundreds of times sweeter than sugar.

I prefer the liquid sweeteners like this one; two drops are approximately equal to a packet of Splenda.

u/TheEmancipator · 3 pointsr/Fitness

There is 3.4 calories per gram of Splenda. But 1 gram of splenda replaces 2 tsp of sugar which is around 30 calories. This means its more than an 85 percent decrease in calories.

With that said, a better alternative to Splenda is something like EZ-Sweetz, which is a true no calorie sucralose sweetener.

Here is a link to a wolfram alpha comparison of equivalent amounts of sugar vs Splenda.

u/Liquid_G · 3 pointsr/keto

Liquid Sucralose. I'm in the same boat and usually like sweet coffee. Doesn't have the shitty aftertaste of stevia or saccharin.

u/Rhesonance · 3 pointsr/keto

Try to avoid granulated Splenda. Pure sucralose is actually very very sweet so they put in some other stuff to fluff it up a bit. I think I read somewhere that 1 cup of granulated Splenda has 24g of carbs or something. Try this, I've been using it for drinks and desserts and it's great, plus you don't have to worry about it dissolving properly in cold drinks like you do with granulated.

I trust it's unsweetened almond milk, so you should be good there.

Are you eating a lot of protein? Protein in large amounts can raise your blood sugar. Try to stay around 100-150g per day.

Are you eating ridiculous amounts of broccoli or something? It has a fair amount of carbs, but unless you're eating pounds and pounds of it a day, I have no idea why you're not in ketosis.

u/Moobs_like_Jagger · 3 pointsr/keto

Not necessarily. You can't tell by the label whether or not a prepared food used granulated Splenda (which has maltodextrin, as pointed out) or pure sucralose, which does not. I would guess it would be easier for a food manufacturer to use pure liquid sucralose to make mixing and measuring easier (not to mention nutrition information) but I'm not sure about what the common practice is.

If you have access to, EZ-Sweetz is liquid sucralose with no bulking agents added. A 2oz has lasted me since January with probably a third still left in it, and I add it to my coffee every day.

Also, a "reduction in ketones" is not necessarily a function of ingesting carbohydrates. As long as there are any ketones present in your urine, you are in ketosis, no matter how dark or light the purple is on the test strip. A reduction in the quantity of ketones is far more likely caused by a change in your hydration than anything else.

Yeah that's not too bad. Of course you can get 1000ml of concentrate for $45! We bought 120ml of concentrate from three sources (1, 2, 3) to compare and she didn't notice a big difference between them. They've all been in the freezer since and still taste fine 3 years later (actually one of them is completely gone and the other 2 are getting pretty low).

I just started with an online calculator and went from there; it's easy to get to whatever % you normally vape at.

I found out quickly that plastic syringes suck - they wear out and the eliquid melts the markings off. So I got a few glass syringes off of ebay (though really I've only ever needed one).

Initially I was super-careful with the nicotine concentrate as it can be fatal in really small doses, but after handling it a bit I realized it's actually very safe and easy to handle. Unless you squirt it in your eye or mouth you aren't going to have a problem - but you definitely need to keep it away from children and pets.

Then a few glass dropper bottles, PG and VG.

Whenever she's getting low she'll order a few different flavorants (usually from here) in 10ml bottles. I rarely mix flavors as it's simpler not to - just dump a full 10ml bottle into a dropper bottle, add 4-6ml of nicotine concentrate, then around 20ml each of PG/VG. Let it sit a week and it's ready to use.

Fatty acids are carboxylic acids with long carbon chains.

Examples are lauric acid, stearic acid, capyrlic acid, etc.

Free means that they are not attached to anything. So in triglycerides (fats), the fatty acids are not free but exist as esters with glycerol.

Glycerol itself is stable. You can buy it pharmacy or grocery store, under the common name glycerin.

But fatty acids, mainly unsaturated ones, can undergo further chemical reactions.

1 liter of VG:

With that 120ml of nicotine, you can make 2L of 6mg juice. So for 50 bucks, you can make quite a bit of liquid.

u/lite_acker · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Keep the amount of sweetener low or zero and it will have the biggest impact on coil life. Low flavor will help in general, but some flavors hardly contribute to coil gunk at all, so it depends on which flavors you use. I haven't noticed any difference in the rate I change coils using 50/50 and 70/30, and I use both regularly in different setups.

BTW, it sounds like you are trying to decide between a finished nicotine base, 50/50 or 70/30 with maybe 6mg/ml nic added already, for example... Sorry if I misunderstand. That way does work but I do it the other way around, and mix my flavor base, then add nicotine to suit the order. If you buy VG, PG, and 100mg/ml nic each in its own bottle, you will have infinite flexibility with every bottle you make.

It's cheap too:

welcome to the club, friend.

a couple recommendations based on personal experience.

Ghost pepper: 1 of them INSTANTLY can be recommended. ADOBOLOCO HAMAJANG is INSANELY delicious. if there is a cost plus world market near you, they probably have it. if you are lucky, they are in the clearance section. manageable heat. EXCELLENT flavor. its more of a pepper water than your traditional hot sauce but w/e.

habanero: secret aardvark habanero hot sauce is by far my favorite habanero sauce. i would avoid "DA BOMB" like the plague. literally no flavor at all, and it just feels like you are stabbing your tongue with a hot knife.

Trinidad scorpion: personally, i cheated with this one. i am PROBABLY the only person out there with an actual BOTTLE of the Buffalo Wild Wings "Scorpion Rum" hot sauce. scorpion peppers mixed with meyers dark rum makes for a SERIOUSLY delicious sauce. shame it as a limited time only deal...

i actually havent had a sauce with carolina reapers in it, so i cant recommend anything. but if you stay here long enough, you wont just try one or 2 of them, you will probably find a GOOD one.

Important though:

  1. Specifically this flavor. I've tried a few others and eh.

  2. Drain the water after microwaving/boiling, it's definitely a fried noodle dish rather than noodle soup.

u/SergioSF · 2 pointsr/MealPlanYourMacros

Place 1-2lb of Ground chicken in a frying pan and stir the chicken on medium-high heat until barely pink. No added oils are needed to fry.

Drain access fat from pan. Since it's ground chicken, there will only be about 2-3 tablespoons.

Place frying pan back on stove.
Change heat to medium and move the meat over to one half side of the pan.

Crack in 3-4 eggs per 2lb of ground chicken on the other half of the pan and add salt and pepper and let sit for 2 minutes minutes. Then stir in all together. You should add in your precooked veggies at this point if you are using any.

Eat on or with slice of wheat toast. Dab on generous amount of Aardvark Secret Habanero Sauce. You can find this at supermarkets for $5-6, but paying $7.00 a bottle is a steal for how rare it can be depending on your location.

This is my lazy weekday morning way of doing it. My recipe is ripe for improvement.

> What do you love the most about your new home?

Snow and Climate

I came from a tropical country, passed by the Equator, day/night cycle is always stable, there's only 2 season : dry & rainy season. Average temperature around 27-30 Celsius.

Enter UK, 4 seasons, different day/night cycle each season, and Daylight Savings Time. First winter was rough, I had to wear a quad layer clothing in order to survive the near-zero temperature outside. Now it's spring and I'm sweating on 15 degree Celsius (that's already freezing in Indonesia).


> Favourite indonesian and british dish?

Indonesian dish? Top pick :

  • Sauteed Kale (local name Kangkung, also called water spinach, swamp cabbage, or morning glory)
  • Fried Tempeh
  • Sambal Terasi (Fishcake hot sauce)

    Put three of them in front of me and I'm a happy man. Total cost of that food should be around 4 Pounds for 1 servings here in UK, in Indonesia its MUCH cheaper, less than 1 Pounds for 4 servings.

    As for one thats easily available worldwide, I think it's Indomie Goreng. IMO, that's the best Instant Noodle in my Country.

    As for British Dish, I can't say much, haven't found any british-specific dish here. And if there's any, I doubt I can eat it since I only eat halal meat and can't consume any alcohols (you can call it inconvenient but I've lived with it since I was born, so no big deal xD)
u/euchlid · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

One of my dad's specialties is the ichiban leftover soup.
Make the soup, add whatever left over cooked meat you have, shredded. Add in bok choi, broccoli, green onions, and an egg or two.
Add in a couple of splashes of Maggi seasoning for extra sodium (lol).

Mi Goreng is one of my favourite instant soups.

u/seg-fault · 2 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

You're right, I am all of those things, and dudes are my specialty. (For the record, I do like Tabasco)

I find different dishes call for different sauces. The more sauces you try, the better of an idea you'll get for yourself what works with what. Note that the below links might not be the best prices and you can probably find a lot of these sauces at your local grocery store (unless you live in some cultural black hole like the American midwest). I spent my earlier years in southern California and developed a taste early on for Mexican cuisine, so my taste is highly reflective of that influence.

I enjoy these Mexican-style sauces:

  • Cholula - mainstream, overpriced, but decent

  • Tapatio - slightly more spicy than Cholula, a more peppery taste, for lack of a better description (on my part)

  • Valentina - One of the cheapest sauces I've come around, just douse everything in your path with it, similar to Tapatio

    El Yucateco is a great brand, in my opinion. They have a lot of awesome varieties. If you go to an authentic Mexican restaurant, you'll likely find it there:

  • Green Chili Habenero - Don't let the color fool you, this is a nice spicy sauce with a good flavor

  • Kutbil-ik Mayan Style Habanero - This is a different flavor, but it's great and has a nice heat profile

  • 4 pack Sampler - why not just try them all. $12 ain't that much, my friend ;)

    There are some other popular sauces which if I were to omit, people around here would be very angry:

  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce - This stuff packs nice heat with a garlicy-chili taste. I generally save it for Chinese and Indian food, and cup-noodle. Others like to put it on pizza and everything else. It is my opinion that they just don't have the right repertoire of sauces, but hey, if they like it, more power to them.

  • Frank's - You've already mentioned this, but this sauce and other similar Louisiana-style sauces are my favorite. Not very spicy, but they have a nice tangy flavor that goes great with Pizza, eggs, burgers, etc. Don't think about using this stuff on ethnic food, though. Stick to their sauces ;)

    There are a lot of boutique sauces out there that just pump out the Scoville units for the hell of it. A lot of them are gag gifts or novelties, but there are people out there that genuinely enjoy the rush you can get from them - you do get an adrenaline rush, it IS a high. Most of the sauces like this, however, are intended for cooking beef chili and other dishes where a small amount can be distributed through a larger portion of food.

The recipe I used was based off Paula Deen’s Southern Fried Chicken recipe with some modifications:

The 3 major modifications I made:

  • Substituted siracha hot sauce
  • Brining the chicken in buttermilk for 24 hours
  • Used a cast iron skillet instead of a deep pot (to get a nice crust on the chicken)

    The most challenging parts of the cook were breaking down the chicken and keeping the oil at a steady 350.

    Food ingredients

  • 2-2.5lb chicken
  • Large container of vegetable oil (peanut oil is my favorite)
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 cup + ½ tablespoon siracha (I like Huy Fong which you can get on Amazon:
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • ¼ cup + 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup garlic powder
  • ¼ cup + ½ tablespoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne 1/2 quart low fat buttermilk
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh sage
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic


  • Garlic smasher
  • A very sharp chef's knife
  • A large tupperware container (to hold the chicken for brining)
  • A medium tupperware container (to apply the dredge)
  • Oil thermometer (instant read is best)
  • Meat thermometer (for the chicken)
  • Large (10-15") cast iron pan (I used 12")
  • Cookie sheet and rack (to allow the chicken to rest)
  • A good pair of heat resistant tongs
  • Lemon zester

    Prepping (the day before)

    I front-loaded some of the work the day before, too, but you could do this the day of.

    Break down the chicken

    I brute forced 4 chickens on Friday and didn’t do enough research… here’s a good video on how to do it: Another good one from Alton Brown:
    I ended up with 2 drum sticks, 2 breasts, 2 thighs, and 2 wings. All of the pieces should include the bones, including the breast. Set it aside.

    Create the brine

    Mix together in a large tupperware:

  • ½ quart low fat buttermilk
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh sage, bruised
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh thyme, bruised
  • 1.5 sprigs fresh rosemary, bruised
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 lemon: juice it, then add the zest
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ tablespoon siracha
  • ½ tablespoon smoked paprika

    Add all the chicken pieces, seal it, and put it in the fridge for 12-24 hours. Flip the chicken halfway through.

    Create the egg/sauce mix

    In another medium tupperware, mix together:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup siracha
  • ⅔ cup water

    Create the dredge

    In my cook, I just put 2 cups self rising flour in a tupperware.

    Create the house seasoning

    Mix it together and put it into an old spice container or pizza shaker: 1 cup kosher salt ¼ cup black pepper ¼ cup garlic powder ¼ cup smoked paprika

    The cook

    Do not cook the chicken cold. You want to time it so the chicken is near room temperature when you’re adding it to the oil. I waited about 45 minutes.

    Add the oil to the pan. I filled mine just before ⅔ full. Bring the heat to 350, carefully monitoring using a thermometer. I had my burner at about 5.5/10.

    Remove the chicken from the fridge and dump the brine down the drain. Remove all of the fresh herbs from the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels.

    Season the chicken liberally on all sides with the house seasoning.

    Using tongs, take the chicken and dunk it into the egg/hot sauce mixture. Let it drip dry, then transfer it over to the tupperware containing the self rising flour. I did 3-4 pieces at a time. Close the container and shake. Remove the chicken from the flour and shake it to remove excess flour.

    Once you’re done you’ll have a big pile of chicken. Let it side for 5 minutes to allow the flour to set. Remember, you want to avoid putting cold chicken into the hot oil.

    Once your oil is at 350, add the chicken. If you’re doing just one chicken, you can position it so everything ends up finishing around the same time. Put the thigh meat in the middle and everything else around it, with the white meat towards the edge of the pan. Skin side down.

    Cook it for 10-12 minutes, then flip it. Using your meat thermometer, track the inside temperature of the chicken breast. Remove it once it reaches 165 and put it on the cookie sheet / rack (do not use paper towels!).

    Serve it hot. If you’re doing a bunch all at once, you can put it in the oven at 200 for a little while until it’s ready to serve.

Wooooo okay! Here's 1-20, and I will give the bonus ones a go in just a few minutes! fear cuts deeper than swords

1.) Something that is grey. How about a knife set?!

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. Cinema Paradiso! The cover of it is two people in the rain :) (Movies wishlist)

3.) Something food related that is unusual. This Manatea infuser is unusual! (Default wishlist)

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) I have a pet wishlist and a wishlist for my best friend! This traveling litter box is the perfect combination--it's so I can take my kitty on trips to my best friend's place! (Kitty wishlist)

5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! Why have just one book when you could have 3000?! This little usb is loaded with over 3000 classic novels. Yes, almost all of these novels are free on Project Gutenberg, but having them all in one spot ready for you to peruse is amazing. You're almost guaranteed to find a book worth reading that you haven't read yet! (Books wishlist)

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! Well, not a physical item, but I have an mp3! (Music wishlist)

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) Kitty nail caps! I have a sphynx, so I have to clip her nails roughly every week (otherwise when she scratches herself, she cuts herself up D:). Nail caps are a cute and more hassle-free way of dealing with her claws! (Kitty wishlist)

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. This one is pretty tough for me, actually--I love purposeful items! However, I already have a cheese grater, so this hedgehog shaped one isn't actually something I NEED--it's just so cool!! (Default wishlist)

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? Life is Beautiful. It's a sweet, touching, and heartbreaking story of a Jewish father trying to keep the joy in life in a concentration camp. It's laugh-out-loud funny, and so sad you'll cry. Definitely worth watching. (Movies wishlist)

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. Packaged, high-cal foods will be really helpful! You have to keep your energy up while you're on the run, and you need a portable snack! These cookies are sure to give you the extra boost you need to escape the zombies. (Default wishlist)

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. Hmmm this is a toss-up for me. I need a laptop for life. I have a little chromebook, but when I need to update my resumes and write cover letters, I need to go to the library to use an actual computer to make sure the formatting is right. A laptop would help with the job hunt and (hopefully) help land me a job! (Expensive things wishlist) My other goal, to become healthier, would be helped by wrist weights to wear during my runs! No, it's not a huge amount of weight, but it will make my runs that much more difficult and help tone my arms! It's a small change with a big impact :) (Default wishlist)

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. Oh gosh, take your pick. Cat snuggie (kitty wishlist), sriracha (who doesn't love hot sauce?! Under $6 wishlist), a pumice stone (Under $6 wishlist), or a kitty laser toy! (kitty wishlist)

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? A $500 keyboard. I love playing piano, but I'm a young and flighty thing--I fully expect to be moving around a lot for the next 5-10 years, and I can neither afford an actual piano, nor can I imagine transporting one in and out of various apartments. This keyboard will give me the chance to practice and enjoy playing, but it's a much more compact and liveable way of doing so. (Expensive things wishlist)

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. A relatively cheap and yet still nice vacuum cleaner! Nice, easy to use, and practical :) (Expensive things)

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. A storm trooper USB! Cute and practical! (Default wishlist)

16.) Something that smells wonderful. Lavender chamomile bubble bath! I don't know about you, but few things smell more relaxing to me than lavender and chamomile, so a combo bubble bath just sounds like bliss to me. (Default wishlist)

17.) A (SFW) toy. Here's a whole bag of toys! And less than $10 too! My kitty would have a field day with all those toys :) (Kitty wishlist!)

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school. A lunch box! I always brought my lunch to school, so every year I got a cool new lunch box for that year :) These ones are super cute, and insulated! (Default wishlist)

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. I've had a life-long Disney obsession! (Movies wishlist) My whole bathroom is Mickey themed (default wishlist), and I'm always looking for cool new Disney items to add to my wishlist! I seriously love Disney.

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. You too can own the Sword of Gryffindor! (Expensive things wishlist) Not only do you get to wield the weapon that destroyed three pieces of Voldemort's soul, it's also pretty practical! It's a letter opener that you can proudly display resting in the hands of a lion :) (Expensive things wishlist)

u/TheLepos · 2 pointsr/bjj

Physio-Nerd here. Potassium, Magnesium, Water. If it's a big problem try to aim at at least get 4000-5000mg Potassium daily and 500mg magnesium. Stay hydrated because your kidneys need water in order to clear magnesium from your system. These values are slightly higher than the RDA if you look it up, but RDA values are typically a "what's the least amount that you can function properly on" not a value that provides optimal performance. (NOTE: I'm NOT saying that there isn't a max value you shouldn't cross, but these values are typically much higher than the RDA). We also lose electrolytes through our sweat, so going slightly higher will help balance that out.

A recommendation I can make is to buy something called lite salt ( It's half sodium, half potassium, so that can give you a good way to passively get more potassium.

TL;DR: Electrolytes, water, something, something, something, salt.

u/breederofdragons · 2 pointsr/TeamSandcastle

First off, I am by no means an expert in keto, and almost everything I have learned has been from /r/keto, and trial and error. This may also be a novel, as I am very long winded...


With food, I found that most processed foods were off limits. This was hard at first because that's just about all I ate. Keto forced me to prepare every meal, every day, from scratch. I have no problem with that, as I LOVE cooking, and as a SAHM, I have the time for it. Some people find this very hard to do, and it makes keto very stressful for them. I'm sure there is a way to do it without being a good cook and having oodles of time, but you'd have to refer to someone else for advice there.

As for what foods worked for me, we ate a lot of ground beef, sausage, and pork. Anything that is usually on a bun/tortilla/rice, I just made into salad. Hamburger salad with (reduced sugar) ketchup and mayo for dressing, taco salad with no shells, fajita salad, stir-fry salad, etc.

My side dishes were usually spinach, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, or broccoli. There are a ton of ways to prepare them all, so it didn't get as boring as it sounds.

For snacks, I like them easy, so I'd have things like string cheese with pepperonis, handful of almonds, lunchmeat rolled with sliced cheese, tuna/chicken/egg salad with pork rinds, or leftovers. If I could just pull it out of the fridge, it was fair game.

I found millions of recipes and ideas just by googling whatever I wanted with the word "keto". For example, google "keto lasagna" and you will find a bunch of recipes where people have already figured out how to reduce the carbs. When you have learned some tricks from others, it becomes easy to start to see what you can do with your own favorite meals.

My biggest piece of advice for food is: do NOT drive yourself crazy trying to "keto-fy" everything. For example, keto fried chicken is easy, just 'bread' the chicken with crushed pork rinds, and cook like usual. Bam. Done. Then there are recipes for bread that call for physllium husk and xanthum gum. They are do-able, but will just make you crazy and leave you craving the real thing. Keep it simple, especially at first.


For electrolytes, I believe the recommendations are 5000mg of sodium, 1000mg of potassium, and 300mg of magnesium. For sodium, I just salt my food to taste, though I really like salt, so it was easy for me. My husband found that he can't salt his food that much.

For potassium, I bought Morton's Lite Salt at my grocery store. I used it for salting most of my food, and use it to make my own 'sports drink'. (I've found that most sports drinks contain high carbs, and the ones that don't contain so little electrolytes, you'd have to drink a ton of them.) 1/4 tablespoon in a bottle of water with a liquid 'drink enhancer' like Mio, though I use a store brand, and you have 350mg potassium and a little sodium knocked out. I usually did this 2 times a day.

For magnesium, I take a 500mg supplement with my multivitamin everyday. It's the only electrolyte that I needed to take a supplement to reach. You should be getting a lot of these from your foods, but sometimes it just doesn't work that way.


Log everything you put in your mouth. Every gram of every bite, even your supplements, and you will know what you need and where you are. Some people can do 'lazy' keto and have success, but I found that I needed to see my numbers everyday. MyFitnessPal is amazing for this, and after using it a while, it becomes even easier. You can add recipes to it as you cook, and get an accurate macro count. You can log your new 'sports drinks' and know if you are lacking in something. My husband and I were religious about logging, and I think that is why we had so much success. It is a lot of work, but it leaves you with answers to questions of "have I had enough ___ yet?"


I had a limit of 20g carbs and tried to NEVER go over that. Some days I saw 21g or 25g. Very rarely, I would have a 30g day. My reasoning for a super hard cap of 20g was 'hidden carbs'. Like I replied before, some things will be labeled as 0g carbs, because if it is less than 0.5g, they legally can. Two servings leads to one 'hidden carb.' Sometimes, MFP counts are off a little, especially veggies, and you don't want to ruin your day. I've read that people can stay in ketosis under 50g carbs, but I didn't want to near that. Capping at 20 guaranteed I stayed in ketosis, and theoretically gave me a 30g cushion, should I have missed something. I do not think I ever came out of ketosis, so it seemed to work well for me.


My husband and I are proud to say that in 100 days, neither of use had cheat days. We did, however, have days where we said "fuck it" to MFP and just relied on our knowledge of our food to keep on track, but this didn't happen until after a couple of months. I am not against cheat days, but they can knock you out of ketosis, make you retain water, and, in my experience, going from few carbs to a lot of carbs and back makes my body feel like crap. I say that if you need to 'cheat' make it one meal, and still try to keep the carbs as low as possible. Need french fries once a month to live? Have a bunless burger and your fries. It's roughly 70g carbs for a large McD's fries, so you've gone way over, but if it is for your sanity, once in a long while won't completely derail you, just make a couple days a little wonky.


This run was my third go at keto. The first two I didn't last over a month. Part of that was my lack of knowledge, and part was doing it alone. I live with my husband, 4 year old, and mother in law. The first two times I did keto, I did it alone. The first time, I found that I was cooking almost 4 different meals for every meal of the day: me on keto, something for my picky kid, gluten free for my MIL, and something 'regular' for my husband. That's 12 different meals a day. I love cooking, but not that much.

The second go around my kid was a little less picky, my MIL dropped the gluten free diet, and my husband is extremely easy to please with food. I learned how to make one meal that worked for everyone, by making different sides for myself and the others, or adding what I needed, like excess fats, after the fact.

What I found most beneficial from ketoing with my husband is that I have someone to commiserate with. Online support definitely helps, but having my husband to complain to was much more helpful, as well as instantaneous. I would tell him I want mashed potatoes, he would say that he does too. We would laugh a little, cry a little, and resign ourselves to our mashed cauliflower. Also, his successes made me just as happy as my own.

Well, I hope some of this helps! Sorry that it is a wall of text, but like I said, long winded. I like sharing my experience, because I really endorse keto as a great tool. I am currently coming off of keto, but have decided to keep my cap to 50g carbs because I have never felt better than I do when limiting them. This may keep me in ketosis, but that is no longer my main concern. I know that I have keto in my arsenal now, and I will return to it if I ever need to. Good luck, and feel free to ask any other questions you have, and I will be happy to try to help!

Those potassium deficiency cramps are kicking in! I had really bad charlie horses in my calves for what seemed like a week - it hurt to walk. Once I upped my potassium, they went away! Lite Salt can help - sprinkle it on your food that needs salt, or sprinkle some in the water you're drinking.

u/KetoConnect · 2 pointsr/keto

A lot of people get Lite Salt - Which like half sodium and half potassium.

You're probably going to want some plain old table salt to go along with that though. I just get Sea Salt from Trader Joe's.

lite salt

u/strobonic · 2 pointsr/keto

Just to clarify, they're talking about Morton Lite Salt which contains Potassium.

I supplement with chelated Magnsium (have done since before keto) as pretty much everyone could stand to have more. Potassium is more challenging to compensate for nutritionally on keto. I haven't heard much good about supplementation besides the rec's here re: lite salt and aiming for potassium rich greens in your diet.

Electrolytes are super essential. A lot of people also swear by epsom salt baths!

Edit: Potassium iodine is fine as it is only used in super small quantities for the iodine content. What you don't want is a large amount of the salt being potassium based, e.g. potassium chloride.

Lite salt tastes like salt, but it's higher in potassium (which you need on keto). I have not tried a sweet version. I don't have a sweet tooth.

u/drazgul · 2 pointsr/fasting

> I wonder if that has any affect on it.

Definitely, and even if you didn't, salt is still crucial for water fasts. If you can, try and get something like this

Instead of just sodium like in normal table salt, half of it is potassium which is necessary as well like /u/bootelho mentioned already.

Lite salt in the UK avail on Amazon...


1/4-1/2tsp lite salt in 20-28oz of water, add some mio, done.

I bet that's low magnesium. Get some of these. And for electrolytes, get lite salt.

u/unique616 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I make my own Gatorade for cramps. In the spices section of your grocery store, there should be a salt alternative for people trying to lower their sodium intake called Salt Lite. It's a mixture of salt and potassium which also tastes salty. It's supposed to trick you into thinking that you've added more salt to your food than you actually have, but it's a mixture of the same two ingredients in sports drinks. I put 1/4th a teaspoon of that in a water bottle, add a squirt of the store brand (Kroger) Crystal Lite to make it taste good. They make some with B vitamins in it and one with caffeine and B vitamins. I have some of each. I top it off with water and shake it up. I will also add a 1/2 teaspoon of creatine in there if it's the drink I'm going to take with me after breakfast.

u/OMADer2762 · 2 pointsr/omad

I think pink sea salt is just hype with too few minerals to make much of a difference. I recommend a quality multivitamin and 50/50 sodium and potassium salt in order to make sure you're getting enough potassium which is an important electrolyte. A splash (teaspoon) of magnesium in your water will give you a good amount of this important electrolyte as well and at a much lower cost than pink salt. Magnesium can be a laxative if taken in higher doses and that effect occurs with both the liquid and pill.

I HATE taking large pills, that's why I use liquid or gummies, but feel free to take pills if you'd like.

Combine these and you will be getting everything you need, and at a lower price than pink salt.

u/DeptofPeasantDresses · 2 pointsr/kratom
u/luluinthelibrary · 2 pointsr/migraine

I buy from the company Gaia Ethnobotanicals. I personally don't notice much of a difference between the different kinds of blends/strains (red, green, white), but most people do. Reds are considered to be the most helpful for pain and most sedative, while greens and whites produce a more energetic effect.

My personal favorites from Gaia are Bali Gold and Purple 8-in-1 (highly rated for pain). I would recommend trying any of their reds or the two above for pain. If I were you, I would buy their welcome sampler so that you can try 5 different kinds. They often post discount codes on r/kratom and as a first time buyer you get a discount. I don't work for them despite this sounding like an ad, I just really trust them.

I take around 2.5 grams each weekday on an empty stomach - this is very important. Food can disrupt the effects. I eat a light meal about 30-45 minutes after I take kratom via oblate discs. Interestingly, sometimes I don't even notice the effects until mid-meal or even after. I swallow the powder in the oblate discs with lemon water, followed by a cup of ginger and lemon tea. Lemon potentiates the effects and is also good for all around health, while ginger settles your stomach. Kratom can be hard on some peoples' stomachs, so I highly recommend ginger. Like opiates, it can make you a bit constipated. TMI, but I'll always be honest!

Absolutely do not drink alcohol with kratom. It increases chances of nausea/vomiting and even if it's one drink, you'll be left with a hangover because kratom can dehydrate you. That's why it's important to make sure you're hydrated!

I can answer any more questions! I really support the use of this plant for pain relief. I'm not sure if you're a man or a woman, but kratom is also extremely useful for menstrual pain and/or endometriosis pains

Edit to add oblate disc link and more info about stomach stuff!

Yeah, sure! I just heard about them by word of mouth, and found them on amazon. It is basically making a little “taco” or “pouch” and dipping it gingerly in water, then swallowing immediately. I have had instances where I filled it too much or didn’t wrap it well and it broke in my mouth so I choked on the powder while trying to swallow, but I’ve pretty well gotten the hang of it now. They were cheaper when I bought them (about 3 or so dollars less), but there are 200 discs in each little package. I just now have gotten through half of them since my order in October.

u/cocjuno · 2 pointsr/kratom

Try oblate discs. They're better than capsules because they dissolve fully and much quicker. You wrap your kratom dose in one, dip the part holding the kratom in water (don't get water on the part you're holding or it will fall apart), and then swallow it with water. Works like a charm!

IMO the best thing for anxiety would be a red Kratom (I respond better to greens so I'd do some experimenting), but with ashwaganda and l-theanine as well. I'll do 1.5-2.5 grams of kratom, 1 gram of ashwaganda if it's really bad .5 if it's not and then .5 of l-theanine. I use these to prepare my doses in advance because these substances don't taste good at all Put all powder in the middle of the disc then fold it over on one side and use the very slightest moisture, lick your finger, and touch the edge of the disc so it sticks to itself. Then fold each bottom towards the middle and use the same wetting technique.

u/Time_Bank · 2 pointsr/loseit

I use this calculator from the Mayo Clinic. According to that, if you are completely inactive 1600 calories a day will maintain your current weight. So if you consume, 1100 calories a day you will lose one pound per week (3500 calories per pound). You can eat a bit more and you'll simply lose weight at a slightly slower rate. Just never go above 1600 calories in a day.

Finding foods that taste good is key to success. I make a shake with the extreme milk chocolate flavor of this protein powder and soy milk. It is delicious. It literally tastes like a chocolate milkshake (as the Amazon reviews confirm), but is really good for you. Low calorie and high in protein. Another dish I make are these beans with garlic powder and other spices. Sometimes I add rice, but not too much (because rice are pure carbs). These beans are high in fiber and protein, so they are perfect. And the spices make the whole thing taste really good. The full receipe is here. The whole dish only costs $1.30 a meal and you can literally have all the ingredients shipped to your door from Amazon. Another tip is that if you drink, you can use the website Get Drunk Not Fat to make efficient choices about what you drink. :) Finally, be sure to take a multivitamin to make sure you get all the nutrients you need even though you have a calorie deficit.

Eat smart and the pounds will fly off in no time. I find the Hall of Fame to be really awesome motivation. With each pound you lose it will become easier to stay away from the bad stuff. Then once you are at your goal weight, you can start to eat more calories because then you just need to maintain. You don't have to be perfect, you just need to make smart choices overall. You can do it, I promise. :)

  • 2-3 jalapeños, chopped (ditch the seeds if you don't like spice)
  • 1 can [Black Soybeans] ( - drained and rinsed - low carb!
  • One can tomatoes with green chiles
  • Seasoning of choice (usually equal-ish parts of chili powder, cayenne, red pepper flakes, cumin and onion powder, with salt and pepper).
  • Cilantro (leave it out if it tastes like soap to you, weirdo)
  • Sour Cream

    Cook the bacon. Remove it from the pan and cook the chorizo and ground beef in the bacon grease. Throw everything except cilantro and sour cream in a slow cooker for 8 or so hours. Top with cilantro and sour cream.

You could get regular popcorn kernals from the grocery store, and then get yourself some flavacol to make your popcorn.

You get quite a lot in a carton considering you only use a little bit with each batch of popcorn made, so it should last you at least a year.

This is the stuff they use at movie theatres to make them so tasty.

u/liamemsa · 2 pointsr/movies

10 year theater veteran checking in...

You need both proper seasoning and a proper device to make it in.

To make the popcorn, you'll need a popcorn maker that agitates the kernels. Most have this as a manual function. That means that, yes, you have to actually turn that knob for like three minutes. However, you'll get a great batch. This is the most important piece. Every commercial movie theater popper operates that exact same way, albeit in an automated mechanical fashion.

The second thing you need is proper seasoning. You can get pretty good taste with standard salt, but for authentic flavor you'll need butter salt.

So, toss in a cup of kernels and about four tablespoons of canola oil. Then put in a spoonful of butter salt. Turn on high and agitate at a consistent speed. Once popping starts, keep agitating until there are around three to five seconds between pops. Remove from heat and place in a bowl. Enjoy.

Popcorn Salt

This setup will last you forever, you'll get sick of popcorn before you get through any of these. You do need to season the popper, just follow the directions. Its a metal pot after all.

My personal was to store the oil in my pantry so it was cool and dark. I had to icecream scoop a giant dollop of it into a cup and microwaved it to be liquid. Then you pop the popcorn like usual.

Then I would empty the popcorn into a giant bowl. I would stir it around and use the popcorn salt for about half the time, and then used finely ground Walmart type popcorn table salt.

u/suddenlyreddit · 2 pointsr/foodhacks

I know this is getting to you a few days late, I make cheese popcorn all the time. Really you need the cheddar powder and something for it to bind together (popcorn topping, butter, etc.)

My method, with links to things I use:

  • To one of these I add 1/3 cup of popcorn, just enough coconut oil to coat the bottom, and a shake or two of this popcorn salt. I use the stir crank occasionally until popping stops.

  • I dump the popcorn into a bowl with extra room so that I can shake it to mix. If it is stainless, it makes things very easy to clean up afterward.

  • I then add about a tablespoon of this popcorn topping oil, distributed across as much as possible. Other oils work here, butter as well. You just need a very light coat, it helps the cheese powder bind to the popcorn (and adds flavor.)

  • I sprinkle some of this cheddar cheese powder across the popcorn.

  • I then shake the bowl, tossing the popcorn to distribute. Then repeat the oil/butter and cheddar powder.

  • If needed I add extra salt.

    You don't have to use most of these things, but I've made popcorn that has gotten a ton of rave reviews with either that method, or minor changes to it. Get some of the cheddar powder and go from there. It can also be used to make mac and cheese, au gratin, or any dish that could use a little cheese flavor if you don't want to just use grated cheese. The powder also sticks on the popcorn crevices, making it amazingly tasty.

u/yddeyma · 2 pointsr/financialindependence

I can make popcorn that tastes just like the movie theater stuff. The main secret is just to use what the theaters use. I know, not very amazing, but it works!

First, use popcorn colored coconut oil like this:
You want to use just enough to coat the bottom of your pan and half way up the popcorn kernels (amount depends on how big the pot is and how much popcorn you put in. For me its a couple of tablespoons. I just eyeball it.

Before you put the kernels in, put in 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of Flavcol: Nothing else really works. Its got to be this brand. It is super-fine flavored salt and it is yummy. I use 3/4 of a tsp but that is too salty for most people.

If I am really lazy, I make home made microwave popcorn, too. I just put some kernels and oil and the salt in a bag, shake it up and staple it. Pop in the microwave. The staples do not seem to hurt the microwave.

>The problem I am having with this MFP states my calorie goal is 2820 But I would have to eat all day to reach this. Even with just what I mentioned above its always around 1300 end of day and I feel completely full.

Exactly. I disregard calorie suggestions almost entirely because they are pretty unrealistic for me unless I absolutely gorge myself and feel stuffed around the clock.

Typically speaking I start my day with a boosted coffee (which you can totally do yourself with butter + coconut oil + coco powder I just appreciate the convenience) and then around 1-3pm I have a grass fed beef stick and boiled egg or something roughly equivalent not because I'm super hungry but because I know if I don't eat a bit I'll be extra hungry at dinner and make 2 people's worth of food ;) and then I have plenty of room for whatever the heck I want for supper. I'm similarly recommended to eat ~2.8k calories a day and most days I'm barely half that.

On sundays I make a half batch of carbquik biscuits and have two of them, two eggs and a nice keto sausage gravy which clocks in at ~6 net carbs as my "cheat but not cheating" treat.

But ultimately, mixing it up keeps me loving the food I eat which makes it a breeze to stick with keto for me.

u/flamingHIPP0 · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

It's a low net carb flour. I've used it for biscuits and pancakes and such.

u/hot-dickings · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Carbquik + Protein powder of choice + Unsweetened cashew milk = Magical pancakes or waffles. Usually around 190 calories, 26g protein, and 14g fiber when I make them. Around 2g net carbs.

I make waffles with them. They're crispy so be careful when transporting them, but it's an easy whey to get more protein. I like chocolate protein powder + carbquik + coco powder which produces a brownie-esque waffle/pancake.

Carbquik can also be used to make cheesy biscuits or whatever else your heart desires.

I also like string cheese, pepperoni slices, cottage cheese + protein powder (or yogurt), Kroger brand's carbmaster products, and oven roasted veggies.

There are also "parmesan crisps" and "asiago crisps" that are sold at grocery stores that are for salad toppings.. But could easily be a low carb snack. :-) You can prolly make those at home too.

I just made this for the first time today, and it's pretty good. I didn't blend the chia seeds and this was my first time eating any kind of chia: the consistency didn't bother me. Make it the night before in small plastic containers and just grab one to go with a spoon when you head out in the morning.

I also often make these (with Carbquik) on Sundays, keep them in the fridge during the week and heat up 2-3 of them in the microwave (~30-45 seconds) while I'm making my coffee and then eat them off a napkin in the car on the way to work:

u/Silverlupin · 2 pointsr/Fitness

are you using the maruchan brand? (more commen in the US). Korean/foreign brands often taste...SO much better. LIke

I like to add veggies, Rice cakes, sometimes even the frozen dumplings, as well as some extra sausages if you want to make it taste better.

Edit: Im korean, and almost threw up when my friend gave me the maruchan "chicken flavor" to taste. *shudder, never again. Ah! forgot egg! egg always makes things more yummy

u/KippTheKidd · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

Well, the hammock, insulation, tarp etc are all a part of a system my girl made. I will leave it up to her to talk about those details. There are some details in with the images.

We are ultra-light, so we don't bring much with us. The heaviest we'll go is about 38lbs for 5 nights.

We used a penny stove for the longest time, but for just a few extra grams, the Titanium Sol Jetboil is very light, more convenient and faster. Less fuel is wasted, so overall it might be lighter.

The dog carries his own bed and food with a Mountainsmith dog pack.

We use an in-line mechanical water filter, pulled from a Sawyer water bottle that we added to our Platypus (superior to Camelback IMO). The hose has a quickconnect, so we can dunk the platy in the water then reconnect the hose without worrying about contamination.

We have a variety of backpacks, mostly GoLite, and we generally select them based on the size of the trip. I haven't found a backpack that is uniquely noteworthy.

We generally choose food for calorie density. Creamed coconut is nutritional and significantly more calorie-dense than.. well, everything. We also bring a lot of powders, thick indian curry sauces, high-calorie instant noodles, mayonnaise packets, tuna packets, thin rice noodles, dates, olive oil, candies. But we would never bring something as low calorie as bacon.

We also collect and eat various wild foods, including morel mushrooms, wood sorrel, indian cucumber-root, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, wintergreen berries and other mints (and leaves for tea), Jewelweed/touch-me-nots (seeds taste like walnuts, young stalks taste like green beans, flowers are sweet), cattail, arrowroot, dandelion, wild ramps (delicious when fried and added to instant noodles).

u/MisterRoku · 2 pointsr/ramen

Usually sold in a Super Walmart in the Asian food section. Far more pricey than Nissin Top Ramen though. I personally, for a cheap and quick meal, get Maruchan Yakisoba noodles and throw in some pieces of chicken breast and carrots. I find the oily part of the noodles satisfying. I'm sure many here will find that info disgusting.

u/DeltaNu1142 · 2 pointsr/trailmeals

I love ramen for cold nights. The shin black is OK, but this one is spicier and I like it a lot more. I add a dehydrated veggie mix like this one.

This makes for a relatively low-sodium soup. Add chicken or some other freeze-dried protein and it’s a light weight and tasty trail meal.

u/_Changyu · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Korean Ramen is the prepackaged stuff.

Shin Ramen - A classic. Link

u/ludicity · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

Well I'm vegetarian not vegan lol but here's my $0.02:

  1. I can't think of any differences in coaching men vs women honestly. Form is form and either way you just gotta get work in and practice form. The one thing perhaps is that most women will start off with worse upper body strength relative to lower body strength, and people in general can recover quite well from upper body work. So for women especially I think it's important to emphasis upper body hypertrophy.

  2. My personal favorite cue is "coil up like a spring" for the descent of squat and bench and the setup for deadlift. It makes more sense to me than "get tight". On squat and deadlift this means tightening my hamstrings until they're loaded with tension, which is how I get stretch reflex. For bench this feels like "pull the bar apart" and "bring your chest up to meet it", which also feels like tightening up my upper back and loading it with tension before popping the weight back up for the ascent.

  3. I've heard that women handle volume better than men, but I'm terrible with high rep sets and have guy friends who are way better at them. I think that "women handle volume better" is perhaps a good rule of thumb with beginners but, as always, everybody's different.

  4. check out @powerliftingdietitian @lamaliciabkln @awill_lift for just a couple vegan powerlifting women (and myself @alice_lifts if you're open to vegetarians)! Here's an article that Stephanie (@powerliftingdietitian) wrote about vegan powerlifting. As far as diet tips, a plant-based powerlifting diet is possible but does require more planning if you want to make sure you're getting enough protein. Some of my favorite vegan protein sources include tofu, black bean spaghetti, beans/lentils obv, and more veggie meat substitutes than is probably good for me. I've even made gravy from pea protein powder that is heavenly with veggie meatballs in a "swedish meatless balls" concoction. As long as you cook for yourself though it's really not too bad -- the main difficulty is when you eat out. Also, since the only whole food source of creatine is red meat and it is an essential building block for ATP, it's especially important for non-meat-eaters to supplement with creatine. Oh I also used to write a veg protein cookbook blog. Not a lot on there unfortunately (been meaning to add more) BUT you and your gf might like the sloppy joes if you're into some good ol beefy comfort food!

    Hope that helped!

> I'm a 30yo female 5'4'' 135lbs looking to replace fat with lean muscle.

The best advice would be to lift weights while eating in a caloric deficit. Tweaking your macros, without impacting your overall calories, will likely make little/no difference unless your current macros are goofy.

I just make sure I hit my protein goals (~0.6-0.8g/lb bodyweight, so 120-140g), then try to get at least 30-50g fat a day, and make up the rest in carbs, ~200-300g.

For protein, I like to get from whole foods. Beans, nuts, and seeds are my main sources. Soybeans are really high. If you still can't meet your macro goals, you might reconsider the amount of protein you're consuming, or get some processed foods. I only use protein powder for one shake a day because it's convenient, but there is also seitan/gluten, tofu, nutritional yeast (> 50% protein), soybeans, explore asia products, tempeh, TVP...

u/grckalck · 2 pointsr/diabetes_t2

Like someone else said, you need to test yourself before and after you eat to find out what foods in what amounts cause you to spike your BG level. When I am trying a new food to see if it will be OK for me to eat, I test before, one hour after, two hours after, and four hours after. If any of the readings after eating are 35-40 above the pre meal reading, I don't eat that food anymore. So once you have eliminated the foods you cannot eat, you develop a diet plan, one you can sustain for the rest of your life, around those foods you can eat. Potatoes, pasta, grains, anything made with flour, probably corn, many fruits, and of course anything with sugar is off the menu for you now.

If you have been diagnosed with T2 by a medical doctor, then you should be on Metformin. Its a great drug with decades of patient data to show that it works and has a low risk of causing other health issues. I get it from Walmart for under their $4 prescription plan. Be ready for at least a couple of weeks of tummy rumbling and frequent bathroom visits. I recommend psyllium husk capsules or metamucil to help balance this out. What Metformin does is it counteracts the resistance the cells in your body have built up to insulin, allowing the sugar in your bloodstream to be absorbed into the cells, thus lowering your blood sugar levels.

Many people feel sluggish after eating without being diabetic, so there is no way a kind internet stranger can tell you with certainty that Metformin will cure this for you. Overall I feel better taking Metformin and eating right.

I absolutely love pasta and have not yet found anything on the market that tastes as good as "real" pasta and doesn't spike my BG level. The best thing I found was this, which my local store carries, but its very expensive:

The best thing I have found is homemade noodles made from soy flour, which is quite low in carbs and high in protein, better than chickpeas. Here is the recipe I use. It is fairly labor intensive. I would roll the dough out as thin as I could and use a pizza cutter to slice noodles as thin as I could. They were still pretty thick but they worked as noodles.

One other tip that has helped me. At least browse some of the keto subs and sites and Youtube channels for recipes. Some are crap, some are ok and some are absolute genius. Its up to you if you want to jump on the keto wagon, some folks swear by for controlling T2. IMHO its worth looking at what they are selling and deciding for yourself what will work for you.

Best of luck to you!

u/Marisey · 2 pointsr/vegan

The best way to gain weight on a budget is to just eat more cheap foods. Go to the bulk foods section and load up on everything. Next in line is your high carb foods; oats, potatoes and fruits, especially if you're juicing your fruits. If you feel like you just can't eat anymore than you'll need to look at ways of increasing the caloric density of your foods. Which means eating more fatty and processed foods; nuts, seeds and avocados, fake meats and cheeses, cereals, protein bars, shots of olive oil. Don't do that last one. But these tend be a little to a lot more expensive, but you can find some really delicious and inventive foods that aren't too expensive. Like these black bean noodles! Also I'm not an athlete or anything so go check out /r/veganfitness for some advice from people that do this everyday.

I got you fam

Here is a stellar review if you're not convinced:

> I hadn't thought before about how important diabetes is to a growing boy. My son, ostracized from the mainstream cliques because of his working pancreas, would come home hopelessly depressed - craving some recognition for his future in the entrenched world of football scholarships. He plays well, but kids today are just too involved in their identities as victims to really accept "healthies" anymore.

> After one particular hard practice, Billy came home covered in spinach stains because the vegans decided to protest that day. I hopped onto the Internet to find the easiest way to get my son out of shape. Lo and behold, the answer was right there in our favorite morning cereals.

> A few days later the package came in and I served it to Billy in a three gallon bowl filled with heavy cream. These became his go-to meals, eating them at least six times a day along with as much frozen sausage as he could stomach to stave off malnutrition.

> Fast forward two months, Billy's up 150 lbs with no chances in sports anymore and he's never been more popular. Type-two diabetes fell on him like a linebacker on ice skates and we couldn't be prouder. Now if only Amazon had something for our daughter to grow that muffin top she's always wanted, I could rest easy and finally let them take my feet.

I'm going to be try to make a chocolate-peanut butter version soon. At a health expo I got a trial of "Powedered Low Calorie" peanut better and it tasted amazing. It's called PB2 found here: I'm going to try to find it in stores, I bet it would make great 1-minute muffins!

u/semi-conscientious · 2 pointsr/Fitness

It's a sort of powdered peanut butter. Supposedly it's made by applying high pressure to peanuts and extracting the fat/oil in the nuts, leaving a dry powder. You rehydrate it with water and it works great as peanut butter or in smoothies and so on. Sounds kind of weird, but it tastes pretty great and is much lower in calories than normal peanut butter (45 Calories vs 190 Calories).

I buy it 1 or 2 lb at a time from amazon.

u/yesitsraining · 2 pointsr/recipes

(Ask your doctor first) but perhaps consider a multivitamin and/or fiber supplement? Just to make sure that, with an altered diet (I am assuming that this is not your normal diet) you are still getting the nutrients that you need (and the fiber to not have the liquid diet wreak havoc).

If you find yourself losing too much weight or unable to keep up calories, drinks such as ensure or boost (etc.) are a good option (also, they make good snacks).

Be careful not to add too many artificial sweeteners to your diet, they tend to irritate the stomach.

Now for some recipes/food suggestions: you seem to be getting a lot of sweeter suggestions, and they seem to be a bit easier to think of (fruits, nut butters, different milks, etc.). Good smoothie additions are: tofu (lots of protein!), well soaked chia seeds (great sources of omega-3 and are much softer and easier to digest than flax seeds), and any sort of protein powder or nut powder.

For more savory foods, the beauty of having a great blender is being able to turn (almost) any soup into a creamy one! Make sure you keep a lot of beans, lentils, seitan, tofu, etc. to keep up your fiber and protein, because meat might be harder to incorporate into your meals.

One of my friends has Crohn's and she uses this website for when she needs to stick to a more liquid diet. Some of the recipes are soft foods, but most are liquid (or can easily be made into mush/liquid). Please let me know if you need any more recipes/tips!

Peanut butter powder may be your best option. If you do it, report back, I have it in mind to try it some day.

u/puddnn · 2 pointsr/vegan

I do this pretty often as well, but I add 2 things. First, just a small amount (1-2 oz) of almond milk to cream it up, and secondly a tbsp of PB2. Turns this into a glorious peanut butter/banana oatmeal while adding less than a 1g of fat and only like 30 calories.

u/sew_butthurt · 2 pointsr/aww

I'm reasonably certain (conspiracy alert here) that the mainstream peanut butter brands are peanut fiber (left over from pressing out the peanut oil) mixed with vegetable shortening. Whenever I eat Jif, it coats my lips with a weird chapstik-type film. Natural peanut butter doesn't do this, but you have to stir it up. I don't mind some stirring.

eta: The source of inspiration for this theory is PB2:

In general, I try not to use sweetners at all, but when I do, I use this:

Or, sometimes, because I really want to like stevia:

For stuff with a strong natural taste, I can get away with the Stevia/Monk fruit combo. For things that are not that naturally strong flavored, or require quite a bit of sweetening, I just break down and use the sucralose.

On a related note, this year I'm growing a stevia plant in our garden. First time trying it. Those leaves are like candy! Just pop one in and chew. For some reason, a straight, raw leaf tastes fine. Maybe its just the novelty factor.

u/tinkafoo · 2 pointsr/keto

Yes, Spenda has around 1g carbs per little packet thanks to the maltodextrin filler. If you use Splenda a lot, try pure sucralose instead.

u/VorpalLemur · 2 pointsr/cocktails

I've been doing this for a while. I started out with EzSweetz however found that it was even cheaper to buy sucralose in in bulk and make my own.

One of the main problems with a sucralose-based simple syrup is that you don't get the texture you get when using sugar. Sucralose syrup feels very "thin" and it has a noticeable effect on mouth-feel.

u/AngelsHaveTheTardis · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Just for (possible) future reference, this is the only fake sweetener I can stomach. It has no weird aftertaste or anything, it just tastes like sugar. It seems a bit expensive, but I've had my bottle for about...2 months & it's only half empty. Highly recommend. Good luck! :)

I'm in the same boat. I just moved to Hawaii and I swear, no one diets here at all. And they eat rice with everything. I'm afraid to say the word "low carb" around these people :)

  1. Bob's Red Mill Coconut Flour
  2. Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour
  3. Mama Lupe's Low Carb Tortillas

Granular splenda has carbs in it that can add up. I personally use EZSweetz liquid sucralose instead, and it's great. You do have to get used to the idea that two drops is the same as a spoon of sugar, though. At the start I was over-sweetening everything.

u/TippyTumbles · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

I use this stuff called EZ Sweet for my coffee that are little drops of liquid sucralose, one drop is equivalent to one cube of sugar. It is SO sweet, one time I accidentally put four drops and it completely ruined my coffee and I had to start over. It's clear and doesn't smell like anything, you could probably empty a whole squeeze bottle into some half used creamer and they wouldn't be able to tell, but it would be insufferable to use!

u/JustinJamm · 2 pointsr/keto

I learned this early on and sought out sweeteners (both natural and artificial) that do NOT use maltodextrin or dextrose. Some examples:

(1) Pure liquid sucralose (no filler, just a tiny bit of water)

(2) Powdered Stevia extract using a non-carb filler (like fiber):

One good additional strategy I use is to check this is Wikipedia's "food energy" chart on sweeteners (shows the total caloric energy for any substitute, such as maltitol) before I actually use anything:

I’ve been freezing yeast for a couple years. The process in that link is a lot more complicated then it needs to be.

I use a variation of this process.

  1. Build a 2L starter like normal.
  2. Once Fermentation is complete cold crash and decant.
  3. Fill 3/4 of a preform, lightly screw on the cap and place in the fridge.
  4. Revisit the next day and decant till you have 1/2 filled with compacted yeast.
  5. Top off with 1/2 Beer, 1/2 food grade glycerin.
  6. Screw on lid, label, shake and place in freezer.

    You’ll want to be as sanitary as possible.
    I can reliably fill 4 soda preforms.
    I’d recommend one have a different color cap to let you know you’re almost out of that particular yeast strain.
    I keep the beer/glycerin mixture in a mason jar and bring it to a boil from time to time since you won’t use as much of it as you’d expect.
    Save used preforms to re-use.
    Only do this for yeast you’ll use or have a hard time getting ahold of. You’re not saving money by saving yeast you’ll never use.
    If I plan on reusing yeast within 6 months I’ll wash the yeast and place in a mason jar.
    In my experience it takes the yeast a day or two longer to wake up once pitched into a starter. Make sure you build that time into your brew schedule.

My mixes are mostly VG, so I get my nicotine in VG Carrier base. I think I have pretty much covered most beginner info. I hope you decide to check it out its pretty rewarding and fucking fun.

Come hang out, Lurk about or whatever

I forgot you will also want to use a ejuice calculator, I use the POTV ejuice calculator on my phone it works well and its free. Its in the Android and iOs store. Peace!

What nicotine concentration are you looking to buy?

If you want to make a 3mg/ml juice, at 75/25 ratio, you could buy

  • this bottle of nicotine ($16 shipped)
  • and this jug of VG ($13),

    Find a clean 1L container, pour the entire contents of the first bottle in, then top off with the VG. Boom. 1 liter of 3mg unflavored juice, at 75/25. Minimal measuring or screwing around needed. You do need to shake it very very well though.

    1 L of juice for $30. That’s $3 per 100ml and is actually still kinda expensive.

Nicotine quality varies so sick with a reputable source like nude nicotine. Pg and vg are about the same but I'd still get it from a reputable source. This seems to be the cheapest and is good quality.

Glycerin Vegetable Kosher USP 43 oz

Essential Depot Propylene Glycol 1 Quart Essential Depot

u/ravendarksky · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Yes, but I would also recommend Essential Depot,

u/Wolfgang1234 · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

It's literally just a bottle of VG I got from Amazon.

Specifically this.

u/sevar · 2 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

Buy USP grade. That's 99.7% purity and is about the best you can get, even ACS (american chemical society) grade, which is the highest possible purity grade for reagents, only asks for 99.7% or higher purity so you don't have to buy this:

you can just buy this instead:

Same for PG, use USP, not food grade. Food grade is just whatever passes the GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for oral consumption grade, which doesn't put a bar on the purity, really.

u/ID10-T · 2 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

If you have Amazon Prime free shipping, and maybe even if you don't, Essential Depot is a great source of PG and VG.

As /u/EdibleMalfuntion already pointed out, Carolina Xtracts is the place for top-quality nicotine base with no worries about peppery taste or anything like that, but if it is too pricey for you, look at other sources. VapersTek is one that comes to mind as being highly recommended. Nude Nicotine used to be, and still is by some, but they have had some pretty serious customer service and quality control issues lately.

u/495830189z · 1 pointr/xxfitness

You go girl! For your peanut butter craving, look into PB2. 2 tablespoons have 45 calories instead of close to's pretty cool stuff :)

u/Arachnocentric · 1 pointr/Fitness

This stuff is good for mixing into shakes or even just hydrating (with oil or water) and using as peanut butter. It's intended more for people who want to cut fat, but it might be good for you too.

Do you like tuna? If not, start to like tuna. You can mix lots of stuff with it and get a quick healthy lunch.

u/storunner13 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

it's not a terrible idea if you like peanut butter beers. I would probably be satisfied with taster.

What OG are you looking to hit? at 1.040, I would look to hit 20 IBU, 30 MAX, and move Fuggles to 20minutes to give a flavor complexity, but less aroma. Personally, I'd reduce the Melanoiden a little. Golden Naked Oats might be a nice addition too. If you're set on using a dextrine malt, use Weyermann Carafoam instead of Briess carapils. Keep in mind that Malted oats are much thinner than barley malt and therefore need a narrower gap in your mill--I would mill them separately.

Definitely use PB2. I'm not sure how people use it with success (dry hop? flameout?) so do some research on what has worked for others and mimic it in your recipe.

u/whitewhitewine · 1 pointr/loseit

PB2 is a powdered form of peanut butter that you add water to. It tastes mostly like peanut butter (especially if, like me, it's been a long time since you've allowed yourself real PB!) but in many cases it changes the taste/consistency of things when added to recipes. This sounds so yummy and filling though, it might be worth the calories for me!

u/kruxofthemimed · 1 pointr/vegan

I've been having this new kind of smoothie lately, it's been terribly delicious. Frozen banana slices, frozen blueberries, soy milk, and.. powdered peanut butter. Never had powdered peanut butter before but holy shit, makes the smoothest, thickest, most delicious smoothies I've ever had. I have a ninja blender and I drink nearly an entire blender full of it every morning.

u/deathfreshener · 1 pointr/loseit


Clean Lean Protein shake with banana and powdered peanut butter, made with almond milk.


Giant handful of spinach, diced tomato, 1/4 - 1/2 cup brown rice, two eggs, sometimes avocado, always with a bit of pecorino romano cheese.


Sometimes the same as lunch or a spinach, grilled chicken and rice bowl with broccoli, bell pepper and avocado. Dab of coy sauce or sriracha.

u/Eileen_Palglace · 1 pointr/recipes

I don't think most of us know what you mean by "peanut butter stock." It's not a common term in the USA as far as I know, and every Google result I'm seeing for it seems to indicate it's just... shelled, halved peanuts.

So I'd say... um... have you considered eating them? :) Or feeding some birds with them. Or going here. Not sure how this would differ from "I have an awful lot of peanuts," which would have been much clearer and probably gotten you some better advice!

Or if you meant something else by "stock" (e.g. at first I thought you might have meant this), you'll have to explain it to us better.

u/CJOttawa · 1 pointr/trailmeals

I wonder if they make an almond version of PB2?

...apparently, there's something similar:

u/gnuman · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

Peanut powder you mean peanut flour or PB2 powder

u/Vulpyne · 1 pointr/Nootropics

> Peanut butter is actually one of the worst culprits for Omega 6 fatty acids.

Whoops! There's stuff like like this which has greatly reduced fat:

A serving has 1.5g fat compared to about 16g for actual peanut butter. It only has 5g protein compared to 8g for regular peanut butter, though, so if you ate the equivalent amount it would probably be around 2.6g fat.

> But it looks like Macadamia nuts are nearly free of Omega 6, and they are lower in fiber than the other nuts.

Just keep 'em away from your dog, if you have one. They're pretty toxic to dogs. They're pretty high in fat, so you probably couldn't get a lot of protein from them without exceeding your caloric requirements but variety is always nice.

These are the kind I've had in the past:

I'd recommend them, but they are pretty expensive. They were the best deal for reasonably rated hemp hearts at the time I investigated. 10g protein to 1g fibre. They taste similar to wheat germ, just with a bit of a nuttier/sharper taste.

> I also saw seaweed can be great if you can actually eat enough of the stuff.

I'm not really a fan, but if you enjoy it!

> What do you use in substitution for eggs? Most substitutes I see are high fiber and I'd prefer not to use those.

For baking? I usually don't use anything, but I don't bake a lot of stuff like cakes. Apple sauce and mashed banana are two substitutes that come to mind which are frequently used in baking. You might be able to use silken tofu or arrowroot powder (mostly starch, I don't think it would have much fiber.)

There are also dedicated egg replacers, like this stuff:
It doesn't seem to have any significant fiber. I don't think I've ever tried it myself.

By the way, if you crave the eggy taste for non-baking stuff there's a salt called kala namak which has a very sulfery-eggy taste. I like to toss some cubed tofu with a bit of cornstarch, kala namak, and black pepper then fry it in a hot pan with some olive oil. Tastes a lot like fried eggs and the texture is pretty much like egg whites.

This is what I have:

Not sure if it's still the best deal, but a little goes a long way. I bought the 1lb package back in 2012 and still have a decent amount left.

By the way, the Amazon links aren't affiliate links or anything like that. Just a possible place to acquire it if you're interested. I'd certainly recommend doing a little independent research before buying.

u/coney_dawg · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I actually followed the ingredients from AIH's Genius Stout and modified the boil, adding 6.5 oz of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter in the last 30 minutes of my 60 minute boil and 3 weeks into fermentation, added 1 dram of Peanut Butter Flavoring, which added HUGE amounts of delicious peanut buttery aroma and sweet PB on the back of the tongue. I can attest to the fact that this beer is getting better with age, and is far from perfect, but served at ~50 F, you're sure to have a good time.

EDIT: I let peanut butter flavoring infuse in beer for ~7-8 days before bottling.

u/WIttyRemarkPlease · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

You've got a GREAT start, but a few items I'd be wary of that others have pointed out are - Granola (these are usually high in sugar), Breads (these are generally high in simple carbs and are treated in the body like sugar), Peanut Butter (these can have lots of sugar added and are really high calorie, try PB2). Your plain yogurt is pretty good as well, be careful of flavored yogurts though as they add a lot of sugar.

One of the most useful things you can do in determining what's 'healthy' is learn how to interpret food labels. The 2 most important labels to know are:

Nutrition Labels -
FDA standards maintain consistency between products so consumers can compare nutritional values, but consumers must also be aware that manufacturers can deceive shoppers by manipulating serving sizes. Products such as creams, butters, and cheeses are often listed in much smaller serving sizes than they are actually used in.

Make an educated decision in the store by converting servings on the label into the amount used in the recipe; providing a more realistic idea of the nutritional value each ingredient contributes to the recipe and allowing us to determine whether we want to find a substitute for it.

Ingredient List - The ingredient list is another important piece in evaluating product quality because every ingredient is displayed in order of prominence. As a rule of thumb the fewer the ingredients, the better and if I can pronounce the ingredients that's even better.

I have wanted to try this powdered peanut butter forever! My favorite candy is Dots. Or anything with peanut butter and chocolate. Candy in general is my favorite food =P What's your favorite?

u/video-girl · 1 pointr/loseit

I buy PB2 which is like peanut butter but with like 90% less fat (its powdered). You mix it with water and it actually tastes a lot like peanut butter, or i use it in protein shakes if i want a peanut butter taste. I like it quite a bit, but it is kind of expensive. Or Id say just to have some peanut butter! Buy the stuff that doesnt have a lot of added salt or sugar, and only have the recommended serving size (usually 2 tablespoons). Peanut butter is fine in moderation just makes sure you dont go over board.

I started a new diet and I want to start protein shakes. peanut butter is a great flavoring agent, but you have to be careful because of the sugar and what not. This is a great alternative to the regular stuff and is actually pretty healthy.

Try out PB2 I have been able to find this at major markets like Kroger and Safeway. I like to dip apple slices or celery into the powder itself, get the same pb apple flavor and the powder sticks to the cut fruit/veg.

u/Eric578 · 1 pointr/keto

I had upper jaw surgery last tuesday. I was doing keto for just under 3 months before the surgery, and have continued doing it with my doctors permission during my recovery. I highly recommend sticking with keto, since the diet itself helps reduce inflammation if done right which helps you recover faster.

If you have any questions about the surgery feel free to ask :) Getting enough liquid keto calories is hard, so far my diet is basically the same thing everyday and ends up being a little over a thousand calories.

breakfast: this very soft scrambled egg dish I learned how to do from a gordan ramsey youtube video. About 300 calories: 2 eggs some cream and butter. You keep it moving until it forms a thick custard, super yummy and syringe-able.

lunch: 1 cup of almond or coconut milk with low carb protein powder and some pb2 powder.

dinner: soup. My current two choices are a broccoli and cauliflower cheese thing I made, and a thai inspired cucumber and coconut one.

u/evilf23 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

try pb2. its powdered peanut butter with most of the oils removed. you can add water/milk/cream and make delicious sauces or flavor smoothies with it. i add coconut milk and use it flavor greek yogurt with berries for breakfast everyday. it's in the peanut butter section at target.

u/Lucifest · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I've also heard of people using liquid sucralose in their mixes. Food for thought.

u/GobbleThisObelisk · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

'Twas a joke.

But just fyi, mixers usually use the following to sweeten juices:

  • Liquid Stevia
  • EZ-Sweets
  • Ethyl Maltol

    I'm sure there are others, but those are the only ones I know of, as my juice mixing knowledge isn't very extensive.

    And I'm sure all of these 'caramelize' to varying degrees.
u/xi_mezmerize_ix · 1 pointr/keto

Give EZ Sweetz a try.

He/she is saying that because you're stick is quite dark, which just means your urine is pretty concentrated for ketones. That doesn't necessarily mean you're mastering ketosis...the likely explanation is you're not drinking enough water. Keto sticks are okay, but unnecessary when you eat the right food and know exactly everything that goes into your body.

Sugar is the only thing about this recipe that is not keto-friendly. Use a sweetener such as EZ-Sweetz and you're all set.

I highly suggest cutting this recipe in half. (We had to throw some out because we couldn't eat it all.) :(

u/windolf7 · 1 pointr/keto

Did you remember to subtract fiber? We try to shoot for 20 net carbs, which is carbs minus fiber.

  • Your cheese probably had like one or two carbs, which isn't a big deal, but just so you know, harder cheese has less carbs. Sharp cheddar, for example, would have been 0 carbs.
  • You probably got the most carbs form your peanut butter.
  • Try using My Fitness Pal to track your macronutrients (Fats, Protein, Carbs.)
  • If you're looking for a good carb-free sweetener I highly recommend EZ-Sweetz. I put a couple drops in my coffee, along with some heavy cream. Carb-free coffee.

    GOOD LUCK!! Looks like you're off to a great start!
u/SquatzOatz · 1 pointr/keto

Well you could buy an ice cream maker and make your's really just heavy cream and sugar, so you can easily sub out the sugar for 0 carb liquid sucralose.

Congratulations on your dedication! It sounds like you're setting a reasonable goal for yourself, and seeking the advice of a physician certainly doesn't hurt things.

That said, there are few things in your list that are a bit inaccurate and may cause you to be less successful. I'm not sure if these are things that have come from your doctor or other expert, but you should be a bit careful with them:

  1. "Not all callries are created equally." This is false. A calorie is a calorie (is a calorie...). If you're at your daily calorie goal now, and you decide to snack on a 90 calorie apple or a 90 calorie cookie, you're still over-eating by 90 calories. If you do that every day for a month, you'll gain (or failed to lose, assuming you're still under your TDEE) about 3/4 of a pound.

    To be clear, the 90 calorie apple will certainly fill you more and satisfy you for longer than the cookie, but there are no "good" or "bad" calories. The only thing that matters (at least in terms of calories) is staying below your calorie goal. Not that that's a thing to obsess over. If you're using a logging app like LoseIt or MFP, log your apple, and get on with your day. Odds are you can fit an apple into most any calorie plan. Just don't deny yourself on the theory that snacking on one food is better than another. Your body can't tell a cookie calorie from an apple calorie. If you're over TDEE for the day, the apple's going to end up on your bum (or wherever you happen to "wear" such things =) just as much as the cookie.

  2. "Find healthy replacements for ... coffee ... with tea..." First, there's nothing unhealthy about coffee, unless you're drinking it to excess and over-caffeinating. Caffeine is actually helpful for dieting as it's an appetite suppressant. Unless you have some other reason to avoid caffeine (high blood pressure, or other health concerns), there's no reason to avoid it. If you're craving a snack, a (zero calorie!) caffeinated beverage can be a good stand-in to put down your craving without adding calories to your day.

    The common problem with coffee of course is the company it keeps. Milk & cream are loaded with calories, and sugar's not your friend either. If you don't take your coffee black, then this is a consideration. I like to use almond milk which has a fraction of the calories of dairy milk or cream, and I only use artificial sweeteners.

    The biggest problem with what you said here though is your substitute. It would be completely fair to label agave as "cactus sugar." It's true that for equal quantities of sugar and agave, the agave provides more sweetening, but it's still just sugar. You're still drinking calories... Assuming you don't have any health sensitivities to them, consider strongly switching to artificial sweeteners for your drinks. Even there, you have to be cautious as standard Splenda is actually sucralose plus maltodextrin and still has calories & carbs in it. My personal preference is this stuff ( which is just the sucralose, no maltodextrin. Easy to keep a bottle of it in your bag, and sweeten your drinks wherever you are.

    As far as the study vs. exercise time balance goes, be super careful of letting studies be "more important" than your health. College is expensive, and you screw it up, it's you're life, etc., no doubt. But your body is priceless, and you don't get a mulligan on that if you screw it up either. As far as finding that balance, I've found over & over when my life is hectic, the best use of my time is to EXERCISE first, fit the other stuff in after. Here's why:

    Exercise is an unequivocally positive "you time," doing something for yourself affirmation. Try to turn it into a little indulgence. A treat. You've got lots of other stuff to do, but dammit, THIS IS FOR ME!!! You're going to need something like that in your life, or you go nuts. The alternative (at least for me) is that it's WAAAY to easy to turn my "little treat" into a food indulgence. A candy bar, because "I deserve this." Danger..... "Be selfish" in a way that's completely and totally good for you, not just "mental health" good...

    Also, as far as time management goes, I find when I exercise on schedule I sleep better, concentrate better, need less sleep to be energized, and actually have MORE time to do other stuff that needs doing. I'm pretty sure 30 minutes exercising 3-4 times a week pays off in more than 2 hours of extra, actually productive time throughout the rest of the week. Obviously there's always a balance to be struck, but try erring on the side of getting your workouts in, and you might be surprised how the rest of the stuff starts falling into place.

    And bonus pro tip: See if you can get friends interested in going to workout (or find new workout inclined friends), and your workouts turn into extra social time. You get the people connection that's important, AND you get a peer reinforcement setup where if one of you feels like skipping a day, the other(s) drag you along for your own good.

    As far as weighing goes, look into an app that tracks a moving daily weighted average of your weight rather than your current actual weight. There's an older app for iPhone called FatWatch that does this. I'm not sure about others that do. The idea behind that is it smooths out the daily ups & downs (which are perfectly normal and don't actually mean you're "gaining weight") and instead shows you your over all trend and where you are on the line to your goal. Example: This morning I'm 3 pounds heavier than yesterday (weekend, family, blerghsszdfasf.a....) but given that I had a really good week over all last week, I'm actually still trending .2 pounds closer to my goal than yesterday. Granted, 3.2 pounds closer would have been nicer, but.....

    Anywho, best of luck with your effort!
u/Ketrel · 1 pointr/keto

Nope. If you buy powdered splenda, it's mixed with dextrose or maltodextrin (I forget which) to make it a powder.

The liquid variants don't use any additional ingredients.

This is what I use.
(I'm a bit less sensitive to sucralose (taste-wise) than most, so I use 4-6 drops per coffee, but most people tell me 1-3 is plenty for them.)

u/unoriginal_name11 · 1 pointr/keto

I bought this at the start, still using it..literally 1-2 drops in about 20oz is the same as several spoons of sugar. Works for coffee, cooking, tea etc.

This is another favorite site, I originally bought one of everything but since have only gone back for certain things (ketchup, bbq sauce etc) to each his/her own.

u/Biospider · 1 pointr/keto

Hard to say without more detail, but my idea of "90% keto" is one that's not compatible with keto. Be it nuts, saucisson, cheese, or whatever... carry food with you always. Being really hungry in an environment where you can't really get keto sustenance is a killer, at least for me.

Preparation is the key to success. At least for me. Don't find yourself in situations where you have to eat, but have no keto option.

Ignore people telling you to cut "artificial sweeteners". Unless you're eating good amounts of sugar alcohols (never seen em in diet soda), they will have no effect on keto. Sucralose solutions, EZ-Sweetz for example, are really good at making keto recipes sweet. I tried Stevia and disliked it. Try a few and see what you like.

u/yanetarana · 1 pointr/xxketo

I use this, 1-2 drops in my coffee and it's like using 2 TSP of sugar

u/potensMatrem · 1 pointr/keto

Chiming in a few days too late, but for anyone coming back to read this at a later date: EZ Sweetz has been an absolute lifesaver for me on keto. It was designed as a sweetener for diabetics (so it doesn't spike your blood sugar), is affordable, and completely without aftertaste. Maybe I've been using it for so long my taste buds have just adapted, but I really think it tastes identical to sugar. The only downside is that, because it's a liquid, you can't use it in baking or traditional recipes that call for granulated or powdered sweeteners.

I hope anyone out there craving sweet stuff will give it a try. Buy it here!

Just a couple other options:

I've been eating keto for over two years and I know this is a lifestyle change for me because of the way I feel. I gained a huge amount of energy after the first few weeks and it's stayed with me since.

As far as your electrolytes go you need to supplement magnesium, sodium, and potassium. I made Morton's lite salt (290mg sodium, 350mg potassium per 1/4tsp) 00 capsules but I found that when I did this I was retaining water even when I was drinking a minimum of 96oz a day. I instead salt my food as needed and eat foods with sodium added (mmm bacon). I buy potassium citrate powder on Amazon and make 00 capsules with that. I did the math and each 00 capsule holds 1/4tsp of their product which works out to about 500mg of potassium per their website information. This is a lot easier to supplement with as ALL potassium pills sold to the public are limited to 99mg due to FDA rules. I take three pills a day as I also eat foods with potassium in them (avocado, coffee, etc). I included some links to the products I use.

It also makes 24 at a time which is awesome.

u/Snarky75 · 1 pointr/kratom

I buy mine online from Amazon. I get like 1000 for $13.00 I also bought a capsule maker that is very helpful. I couldn't stand the taste of the tea. If you ever run out and need some fast you can go to a vitamin store they sell them. I get size 00 they are larger and hold more.

u/50kent · 1 pointr/abv

I know exactly what you mean with the taste, I usually can't even hold the abv down if I taste it. So I would recommend you make cannacaps. You'll still get gross abv burps and farts but they won't be as bad.

First step would be to get your abv to a fine grind, basically powdered. It's not super important, but it makes a difference in a couple different ways, and mortar and pestle sets can be pretty cheap. Hell you could probably even makes one that gets the job done. If you do grind your abv further, that's gonna be the smelliest part of this process, so I'd recommend you prep your room better than you would just for vaping.

The next step would normally be to water cure but since you're in a dorm that's likely not an option due to both smell and access to equipment. I have another method you can use to cure your abv with a pressure cooker that doesn't require an oven, if you're interested I can write that out for you, but I'd imagine smell would still be an issue.

Once your abv is ready, you can start to cap them. 00 sized caps work best IMO, they're pretty big so they hold a lot of abv. You could totally fill them up one by one, but if you can I'd recommend grabbing a capsule machine so you can fill a large number of capsules (the one I linked does 100 at a time) in like 10 minutes. The machine also does a super good job at getting as much abv as possible into each cap, which is part of why a super fine grind is important. Oh and if you do go for the machine, MAKE SURE you get one that matches the size of caps you have, I made that mistake once.

Regarding coconut oil, I don't usually use it but I've heard really good things about it maximizing THC absorption. I don't believe you can easily infuse your abv with oil without a kitchen/smell, but if you wanted to you could put a bit in the caps with the abv.

And there you go, simple cannacaps! I'd recommend you have a large fatty meal with or soon after taking the caps to maximize absorption. I'd also like to note that IME abv cannacaps fuse is even more unpredictable than just eating it, I've had it take like 4 or 5 hours to hit with caps.

u/Malari_Zahn · 1 pointr/KratomKorner

Oooh man, I have lupus and fibro, so I understand pain! Kratom has been awesome for my pain relief!

I just realized that I didn't talk about dosing. I use gel caps since the taste of kratom is awful. I buy my [gel caps] ( on Amazon - and that's where I got my [capping machine] ( as well. I use a [micro scale] ( to weigh mine, but [this chart] ( is pretty accurate.

I know a lot of people do the "toss and wash" method, or just mix the kratom in orange juice or yogurt. I've tried those, and it was a waste of my kratom, as I couldn't keep it down (the taste is just that bad, lol).

So, for me, I have a very low tolerance for meds and drugs and only need to dose about 1.2 to 1.4 grams (that's 2 capsules). I would suggest starting at 2 grams and seeing how you feel. If you need more pain relief after 20 minutes or so, I'd take another gram. Wait another 20 minutes and wash, rinse, repeat. 😉

Kratom can be a bit harsh on my stomach, so I make sure I have a little food in me before I take it. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions!

u/rachmichelle · 1 pointr/avb

If you haven’t tried this already, I strongly suggest making cannacaps! They’re super quick and easy to make once you already have your infusion. First, warm it up a tiny bit (just enough to melt it), then take a small syringe and fill up some empty pill capsules. Seal those babies up and prepare for liftoff :)

If you’re vegan/vegetarian, they make vegetable-based capsules. Also, if size 00 capsules are too large for you to comfortably swallow, or if you want larger capsules so you don’t have to take as many, you can buy size 0 or 000 capsules (0 being the smallest) instead.

They’re super convenient! For each batch you make, start by taking one to determine how strong they are. I pulse my ABV through a coffee grinder before infusing it and skip the straining step to maximize efficacy, since taste isn’t an issue.

u/nutmegtell · 1 pointr/kratom

I LOVE my capsule machine. I got mine for around $18.00 on Amazon and it included the 00 empty capsules (I spied them at a local smoke shop for 15.00) and works like a charm! TnW makes me throw up so I'm relegated to capsules ;)

I've bought lots of different brands of capsules and have found that the NOW 750 count 00 Capsules work best, but if you're looking at a better price you could try these ones sold in bulk sets of 1000 . They smell a little funny to me, and don't always go together properly. But that's probably my own user error.

u/The_numbskull · 1 pointr/kratom

I would just purchase powder from a vendor of your choice, then get these and something like this It takes a little time but it's way more cost effective than buying pre made caps. The empty caps I linked are size 00 which will hold about .5g each but you can go the next size up (000) and those hold about 1g each iirc.

Edit- words

u/TheHammerIsMyPeni5 · 1 pointr/mflb

I make pills out of mine so I don't have to taste it.

I buy empty gel caps on amazon for cheap and then just stuff the AVB in there with the tube from a small pen to tamp it down tight. Takes anywhere between 4 and 10 pills to get me high, depending on how dark I've been making it.

u/davespex · 1 pointr/kratom

You can find them much cheaper than that. eBay as mentioned, here's some on Amazon for under $13 if you have Prime:

Possibly cheaper options exist there also. I used to get NOW foods capsules for around $6 per 1,000.

I spend around $8-$10 on mine now, but I accidentally ordered a size 0 capping machine years ago and just stuck with it. I can get about 350mg-400mg per capsule, which is fine for me as my dosages are on the small side.

u/jollycooperation420 · 1 pointr/Swingers

So this is a touchy topic but my wife and I have a TON of sex and sometimes I think it is the frequency that we do it (we don't use condoms when it's just the two of us) that can trigger this.

I am hesitant to post this because we have real life swinger buddies who read this sub, but anyways, here's our home remedy. Don't be grossed out.

Some first aid boric acid powder scooped into empty gel caps, inserted vaginally. If you have an exceptionally heavy play session might wanna douche it with peroxide first to nuke the bad microbes, then insert one of these after.

What causes BV? Imbalance in vaginal microbial flora. How does that happen? Lots of ways, could be hormonal imbalance, could be something is feeding the bad microbes (semen has a bit of fructose in it, and some lubricants might too, or who the fuck knows what kind of germs are on fingers or mouths) or could be a bacterial infection you need antibiotics for. However if it's something that reoccurs in reproducible situations I would say it's something throwing off your wife's pH and this might help.

Is it safe? My wife's gynecologist prescribed her these that were made by a compounding pharmacy in town. We ran out and started making our own. Seems to work exactly the same. Try at your own risk.

Do one at a time. If it doesn't clear up after the first one, do another one later that day, or the next day. Abstain from sex till you get it under control. If it doesn't work after a couple days, forget it and go back to the gynecologist . . . but this isn't an uncommon problem it's just not discussed openly because people think it's related to "bad hygiene" and women are ashamed of it.

2 You are looking for an Ego Threaded Beauty Ring.

3 You can also buy MUCH better tanks like an Evod for cheap and they have replaceable coils so they are worth the investment. I personally have had better luck with something like a protank or BDC, but anything with replaceable coils will be a big step forward. Also the better build construction means less leaking.

4 PEG-400 is not really an ideal base for any ejuice. It has a bad taste and does not carry flavors very well. You would have much better luck using Vegetable Glycerin or Propylene Glycol.

u/xx2000xx · 1 pointr/DMT

If you're going to vape like he suggested here's what to get.

For VG/PG this is food grade and what everybody uses:

Here's the scale everybody uses which goes down to .01 grams and is flawless:

Sign up for and then you can use the calculator to measure with grams and break down the pg/vg nic and flavors which is the tool all DIY e-juice use. Back in the day we did it by volume which was a pain in the ass and doing it by grams is a game changer.

I wouldn't bother with nic but if you do choose so offer a free sample ($3 shipping) get the 100mg pg version. If you do go into ecigs DIY section for safety. Although if you have common sense it's actually very easy and safe but go to the right section in DIY.

Get pippets:

Get some latex gloves or something.

If you're going to add flavoring this is my favorite: - or their mixed mint which is the same but menthol - Eucalyptus will clear your sinus for a year.

INW is a premium flavoring company because $2-3 dollars for flavoring is expenisve in the juice world, that's why every vapor should DIY but they get overwhelmed with all the info, but it's easy as hell. The 10ml (don't bet the 30) will last you probably your whole life. I would go either 1% or 2% using the calulator, I couldn't imagine using anything above 3% because it's so crazy concontrated.

Oh yeah. They burn real good. Full of calories. It's one of my favorite snacks but I've had to forgo them because I am counting calories now. When I look at that meager handful of 8 chips that represents 150 kcalories, it's hard to justify eating them.

And to think I used to eat them by the bag too... shudder

> I think vanilla icecream works best.

I was going to ask but I had assumed as much. That being said, I am definitely going to try it on peppermint as well... just because I like peppermint and I am curious if it will still work.

> I really can't explain the taste of vegemite even though I've eaten it for 27 years.

"Vegemite tastes like... it just tastes like Vegemite!" is always the answer I get when I ask, which is why I need to try it. Anything that can only be described by the identity property is something I have to try. ;)

> My advice is less is more with that stuff, don't use it like you would use jam (or jelly I think you call it) if you're having it on toast.

Don't be a hero, got it. Thank you for the tip, I would've totally used too much. I was thinking "peanut butter" amounts actually. I'll be sure to dial it back when I try it.

> I'll definitely try that one of I can get my hands on it! Thanks.

You may have to order it online. It's not a super common sauce even in the US as-of-yet. Keep in mind, if you love hot sauce for the heat, this one is on the milder side (I don't know if there's cultural heat tolerance differences).

A couple other hot sauce suggestion:

Frank's Red Hot Sauce: It's been around for a while, it's commercialized, but damn if it isn't good. Medium heat but strong cayenne pepper flavor with a vinegar base. Similar to Tabasco but more flavor less heat. A requirement for US style "Buffalo Wings."

Sriracha sauce (sometimes affectionately known as "cock sauce" due to the logo, at least in my neck of the woods) is also really good. Tough to explain the flavor, actually, but it's really, really well-balanced.

If you are into hot for the heat, Dave's is what you want to try. Hurtin' Habanero is the one I recommend for a good blend of heat and flavor; it's hotter than any other suggestion I've made on here, but it has LOADS of Habanero flavor and damn that is a tasty pepper! But it's mid-scale heat on Dave's own products.

The first Dave's product I ever tried was Dave's Insanity Sauce. At the time, I thought I LOVED hot food unconditionally; I'd get extra hot food from the Thai places and I loved jalapeno chips and things like that. Well, a friend said this stuff was "actually hot" and I should try a drop of it on my tongue. It had a REALLY good flavor, wow. And it wasn't that hot. So I took another drop myself. Still tasted soooo good.

Then it hit me. My mouth started to burn. A burn like I had never experienced. And wouldn't stop. Nothing would stop it. Ice-cream, milk, salt, oil (I was desperate). Best thing I could do was fill my mouth with cold water, hold still, and then fill with more cold water. I was able to return to my normal life after about 3 hours.

It was unpleasant on the way out too.

I now know that the upper-heat levels on Dave's is more for use in a dish to add heat, just a drop or two in a soup will be noticed. Or used as a challenge/haze.

One of the cheapest sources of potassium is "lite" salt, such as this. I've found that calcium pills help too.

u/skibbi9 · 1 pointr/intermittentfasting

Lite salt is a mix of regular salt and "no salt"/Potassium chloride.

There doesn't seem to be science that pink salt is better salt for you than other salts, even if it's often recommended.

u/PrincessPlatypus · 1 pointr/keto

It doesn't need to be epsom salts. Look for a liquid magnesium citrate like this. It might be in a grocery store near the laxatives, or you might find it in a drug store or pharmacy. That's just one option for magnesium. Another is to get it in pill form. You might be able to find or order something like this.

For potassium, see if you can find something like Lite Salt or Lo Salt. I typically find these in the spice aisle of my grocery store.

u/ghostforest · 1 pointr/xxketo

This is really sounds like an electrolyte issue. If electrolytes are off, water and macro changes won't do much. I use Morton's Lite Salt on everything (it's half sodium salt and half potassium salt). Buy it at your supermarket, it's usually right near the regular salt, but in a smaller container. I also drink Electromix drink packets for potassium and magnesium - I buy those at Whole Foods or you can get them online. Finally, I also take magnesium malate capsules. With that regimen, I get no cramps and have never had any keto flu and feel great.

If you're still twitching, my money is on your electrolytes still being way too low. I aim to get at least 1000-1500 mg of extra potassium a day above what I get from diet. I also aim to get 300-600 extra mg of magnesium. And, salt what you eat.

Oh, I overlooked the link. This is interesting - 70mcg per 1.5 gram or 47mcg per gram and that's 45% of daily value (DV). Where did 120mcg/g come from?

The other salt contains 40% of DV per serving of 1.4g. According to National Institutes of Health, the DV for iodine is 150 mcg for adults, so that's roughly 60mcg or 0.06mg per 1.4g.


u/djmor · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Half (or light) salt is half sodium- half potassium- chloride, so it's good to use instead of regular table salt if you need extra potassium in your diet.

Lite Salt. It's basically salt with less sodium and potassium added. Most definitely cheaper in stores however.

u/ExhaustToQuest · 1 pointr/keto

Lite salt is table salt that is (approximately) 50% sodium chloride and 50% potassium chloride.

The traditional "healthy" community uses it as a way to reduce sodium in the diet. However, it can also be used as a cheap electrolyte source also.

Lite salt is a popular option. People commonly mix it with water and a drink mix of choice (such as Mio) and call it "ketoade." I get my magnesium from a combination of a multivitamin and food sources (nuts, seeds, dark leafy greens, etc.).

u/sassytaters · 1 pointr/keto

Have you redone your macros lately? You don't need as many calories now as you did 30lbs ago. And congrats on being 30lbs down. That is awesome. I would use the keto calculator on the sidebar, set yourself at sedentary even though you walk every day, put it at a 20% deficit and see how it lines up with what you've been eating. If it does match up, I'd lower calories by about 100 and see if that helps. The calculators are only estimates; sometimes we have to tweak. You got a food scale? If not, get one. The things you're eating are high calorie and underestimating on a couple things a day can make hundreds of calories' worth of difference.

Don't know your location, but potassium supplements in the U.S. are limited to 99mg, which is nowhere near what we need. I looked up Salt for Life and see it has about half the sodium and potassium of Lite Salt. Get Lite Salt if you can. It's what I use. I put 1/4tsp in 20oz bottles of water and drink them all day long. It's got 290mg of sodium and 350mg of potassium per 1/4tsp compared to Salt for Life's 140mg sodium and 180mg potassium.

u/Red_statement · 1 pointr/kratom

>Plus the time it takes to cap that up (no cap machine) is a hell in itself. Like four hours at least to do 100g

Check out these. You can fit up to 3 grams in them, and they are super easy to swallow. You just put your kratom in the middle, fold it like a burrito, and then lightly dampen your finger and touch it on the folds to seal it. Then you swallow it with a drink. I guess it's an easier and safer way to parachute, but I don't how similar it is because I've never actually parachuted anything. They are cheap and you get 200 in a $6 pack. And they will save you a lot of time.

>Usually I buy 100g bags and enjoy it for a week and a half, then deal with minor withdrawal for a day or two.

Would it be possible to lower your dose? I know it would take a few days but after about a week of using a lower dose I start to get good effects from that dose. If you could lower your dose by just a few grams it each it would help.

Also, I know you said your low on funds but if you can afford it then get some agmatine. You can get 100g for like $12 of Amazon. If you take between 1-2g a day it can help you cut your dose in half. It makes you doses last longer, too.

How about something like this? They're little edible film things that I've heard people use. Ordered some for myself as an alternative to parachuting like I usually do for supplements/nootropics.

edit: Exactly like this.

Nice, will try it out. On some of the reviews on Amazon people stated they use it for kratom. haha I wasn't expecting to see that.

u/Frishdawgzz · 1 pointr/kratom

I've been parachuting with the Oblate papers. They are the tits.

Oblate Discs - Japanese Edible Film, 200pcs

u/Chokingzombie · 1 pointr/kratom

I ended up on oblate disks and they are amazing. I tried every thing I could find and it was miserable. Ended up using 1 ply toilet paper and parachuting it (old drug habits came in handy, for once) and then I found these on Amazon and I'll never toss and wash again. I have no idea how people do that multiple times a day, for years. Shit blows my mind.

Just a fyi, they sell these at my local supermarket and at walmart near me and is a good substitute to black beans and taste great imo.

u/hailcesaro · 1 pointr/Cooking

I'd probably just omit beans and make it a meat-heavy chili like most other people are suggesting.

If your mother really wants the taste of beans for some reason, black soybeans are very low in net carbs. They might be tough to find in person though

> 0.8 grams of protein per pound of lean bodyweight should suffice

I agree, I've seen this number in plenty of places. Just wondering why multiple servings of protein powder instead of whole foods, I guess? I tend to limit my intake to one serving a day, but at the end of the day that's personal preference. Again, nuts, eggs, tofu, meat replacements are other good sources.

>Problem with beans, black soybeans or otherwise, is that they're way too high in carbs - otherwise, I would love to.

Black soy beans only have 1 gram net carb. They're great for veggie keto.

>Also, could you expand on why evening is a "weird place" for it?

Re: bulletproof coffee. I've been doing IF as well, I definitely get not drinking it in the morning. Usually people use bullet proof coffee as a tool to stave off hunger for a long time. It seems like a weird place to use those calories, since you'll likely be eating a large meal soon after. Why not include real food for those calories? I think that's why it feels strange. Maybe a fat bomb after dinner? Or some extra cheese with all that veg?

If you still want to do a bulletproof coffee, maybe after lunch to get you to dinner?

>I've never heard that yogurt is something to worry about and now I've heard it twice.

It IS only 7 grams of carbs, but straight from sugar. That is pretty indulgent, considering it's nearly half your carbs for the day. Also having something with that much sugar can cause more sugar cravings and more hunger, which is worse (in my experience) earlier in the day. Maybe try cottage cheese instead?

You can add some soybeans to your diet perhaps! They taste awesome in taco, salad, chilli etc
Here is the amazon link:
and try Isopure Zero carb for smoothies and waffles. I made zero carb cookies with Isopure which had 11 protein and 57 Kcal!

u/anchises868 · 1 pointr/keto

I would like to add cans of black soybeans.

u/lowcho · 1 pointr/nutrition

Usually total.

Eg. 0 calories, 0 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams of starch... yet 4g of carbs per serving. Or these ones -- it's 8 grams of carbs per serving, but only one gram of actual net carbs... scallops by contrast are a higher carb food at 1.5g of sugar per oz.

u/Justlittlebet · 1 pointr/keto

Also haven't tried these yet I read their a good replacement for los frijoles. Gonna try one can if I can find them first. Only 1 carb per serving.

u/mmhmmbeer · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

I misread the question and thought you were asking for the recipe for refrying. You can buy them in amazon

u/Eyris · 1 pointr/keto

I read that they can be difficult to properly cook, but when cooked they are very similar to kidney beans. They are also available on Amazon. I'm still on the fence about trying them though..

u/themangeraaad · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

If interested also check out black soy beans (link)

I use them in my chili all the time and work out very well.

You could also try cutting out the diced tomatos and add in a jar of salsa. That's another thing I do for my chili with great success.

u/MyKetoAlt · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

They have them at my local upscale grocery store. But it looks like they are easily available online

u/taegan- · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

2nd this also can get them off amazon Eden Organic Black Soy Beans, No Salt Added

Sorry born and raised in Louisiana, not really exotic. Why not try The Source.

u/NITROX4all · 1 pointr/pics

Next time try the source! Worst idea I had in a long time.

u/Bigsaggynigganips · 1 pointr/funny

We had this stuff at a sports bar I used to work at that was called "the source" which came in a little tiny glass vial. I don't remember the exact rating but it was definitely over 6 million scovilles. It was so thick and concentrated it was a thick black paste. I'm not entirely sure it wasn't in fact the blood of Satan himself. There was six or seven different levels of heat you could order on the menu - some of them we just added more powdered cayenne or used a different base. We would dip a tooth pick in the source and swirl it into the hot sauce for the "legendary wings" and fuck, that shit was insane.

Edit: found it, 7.1 million scovilles

u/CalibanRamsay · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Get "the source"^ If that doesn't get you to your limit, nothing will.

u/ZeSanctaphrax · 1 pointr/leagueoflegends
u/I_Burned_The_Lasagna · 1 pointr/food

Order online. If you don't die report back.

u/Lavotite · 1 pointr/nfl

if you ever get the chance this is the one i had

its great if you dilute 1 drop into 5 gallons

u/bethevoid · 1 pointr/videos

What's insane is that this is only rated at 350 Scovilles of heat. There's a hot sauce called The Source that is 7.1 million Scovilles.

You can buy it on Amazon here.

EDIT: You can also buy pure capsaicin crystal and dilute it into a tincture of 16 million Scoville units.
