Coffee - My Story
Coffee. Crowbar in a cup. It’s a magic brew—the eye-opener for many of us in the morning. Yet there are some who do not enjoy it. And that’s OK—no shade on them.
I Want To Store Food
During the first lockdowns we all saw what fear can do. Before the introduction of a kind of rationing by the shops, I saw SO many people who had piled their carts up with what was clearly panicked swipes at the shelves. Bags of potatoes, perishable items, enough toilet paper to re-wrap all the pharaohs and all the rice and pasta they could get their hands on. Less than two weeks later I saw bins on my street full of food. Veg which had expired, impulse buys the buyer didn't even like to eat, and so, so many spoiled fruits and veggies.
Which vegetables we can eat in Navratri
One of the first things to do is to decide what kind of food you like and don’t like. Then figure out whether you can eat a particular type of food every day. When you do this, you’ll become able to recognize foods that are difficult to digest, and also which ones have the best health benefits. If you don’t know what vegetables you do and don’t like, try each one and see what you think, or ask your doctor.
The Modern Day Vegetarian
My Story Since early 2019 pre covid I have been on a journey of varying diets. Finding out what does and doesn't work for me, and I am going to share with you my story. Everyone's reason for cutting out meat and dairy or putting meat and dairy back in their diets are different. Personally I have more than a single reason, and I don't think I could ever go back! In fact I would personally recommend vegetarianism and veganism to anyone, but of course people love their dairy and meat, and I don't blame them.

I am no baker, nor am I into the culinary arts. I don’t know the first thing about making edible foods. The muffin however amazes me because of its shape, how it’s almost two separate pastries in one. It has a bottom portion that is made of the same ingredients as the rest of the body, yet somehow has a different texture and slightly different taste to its counterpart up top. For myself, the muffin top is the main attraction. That’s where the slightly crispy yet very soft crust lies. When opened straight out the oven it creates a billowy cloud of sweet aromatic perfection. There’s just something about the muffin that screams wholeness. Not all muffins are created equal though, some aren’t sweet at all and are made of grains and other ingredients that aren’t the best tasting. While not the best tasting, they are good for the soul, it may not satisfy the taste palate but it does feed the body. A strong body equals a strong and healthy mind that makes this hectic life of ours just that much more tolerable.
How Learning to Cook Improved my Health and Helped Revisit my Stereotypical Thinking

What are Psychological Influences on Eating?
Psychological influences are the emotional and mental thought patterns that affect your eating habits and food choices. These psychological influences can manifest themselves in many different ways.

These are just some examples of psychological influences and how they can affect eating habits.
I'm not a coffee snob
"I'm not a coffee snob," I tell myself as I pour the beans into the coffee grinder. "I'm not a coffee snob," I say again as I heat the water and prepare the coffee dripper.
The Best Coffee Plus A Cup Of Espresso
As I installed in the mattress, it could be around 9 am. I inhale my initial deep breath. As soon as the lungs are loaded and expanded, I release the air into which my blood flows. I am grateful that I can breathe on my own. Unfortunately, not everyone can say this.
Signs That Your Partner Is Trying to Manipulate You
Despite the fact that love is the most beautiful feeling a person can experience, there are far too many instances in which relationships turn toxic. Many partners can take advantage of their partners' emotions and end up manipulating them for their own gain.
Is it worth it?
Have you ever been out and you tell yourself I'm gonna order burger today, so I was at work today and i read an article that Burger King had the big king sandwich which is equivalent to McDonald's Big Mac, so my girlfriend our daughter and me were out and about so my daughter wanted Popeyes and I'm going to be honest it was the most pleasant customer service, I had experienced, so I looked at my girl and said I hope we get the same energy at Burger King, We get to Burger King, its 8;30 PM and we are at the drive through, no response for about five minutes so we pull up to the window and I see the cashier and she ask me if I ordered so I sad no, she looks at someone in the back and they tell her we closed, I had this blank look like WTF but it was the look, so I said I will hit another Burger King, I was very interested in that Big King Sandwich, so we get to another Burger King, we order and we go to the window, and get our food, we do our bag check she got her whopper she pulls my big king out and I'm like what the F**k is that so i ask the cashier is this the big king she said yea with confidence it look like a double cheeseburger from the $1 menu at McDonalds. That was the moment I decided that no one cares about food anymore the romance in food has become the crack era, as a chef I do not want to have to leave work and come home and make dinner we not at least everyday, but some days I just want to grab a bite to eat and relax, which brought me to this place of venting but telling a story.
