Collards In Mustard Cider Sauce fat-free

COLLARDS IN MUSTARD CIDER SAUCE fat-free

There aren’t many sauces you can make fat-free that will stand up against the fatted version. This is one of them. All added flavors and textures compliment the greens and vice versa. I just happened to have cider on hand, because it’s Fall in America where I happily live. My status means nothing. Location, location, location is everything. I don’t want anybody’s life, money or fame. I can get my own in my own way on my own terms. I don’t buck the system or game it, or corrupt it. I work with it. Everybody wants a free pass with nothing to offer. Not me. I raise myself. I don’t need somebody else to do it for me. 

Enjoy this unique way of serving collard greens. Holidays are coming up. Surprise family and guests with something familiar yet different! Serve over a combination of white and sweet mashed potatoes, or seasoned long grain rice. You decide!

Makes 9-1/2 cups

FAT-FREE FRIDAY

MEATLESS MONDAY just encourages people to eat other parts of the animal one day a week. The animal’s eggs and milk used in a variety of ways doesn’t do any more good for a person’s health than eating flesh every day.

It’s not a sacrifice, since most people don’t eat flesh at every meal anyway. Grilled cheese sandwich, macaroni and cheese, egg salad, eggs Benedict, pancakes, potato salad are all considered meatless, which makes one wonder why they even do it, except perhaps for the sake of the dairy and poultry industries, that were whining to the government that their sales were down.

Fish isn’t included in the meat category by most people, that’s why the Catholics allowed its consumption every Friday in place of other animal flesh. It’s still an animal. People think they’re sacrificing something by not eating certain types of flesh – well yeah, they’re sacrificing an animal for a gut that doesn’t need it, a gut that doesn’t really want it.

The government goes round and round gambling with people’s health by rotating the animal abusing industries’ turns to be prosperous. Now it’s dairy, eggs and fish. Nobody gets healthier as a result of this manipulation by governmental forces. Beef and bacon are still in even though they’re out.

This site is about fat. You can google your own stuff and do your own research, however, people resist giving up fat more than any other category of food. The consumption of animals (any part of the animal) is addicting whereas plant foods are not.

Why? Fat. Fat is addicting. And the people who sell you product know that. They’ll lie all around it, but they know what tempts you and what doesn’t. It’s not the cocoa, it’s the fat in the cocoa and the caffeine and a bunch of other stuff.

It’s not the dry piece of lean, they call it, animal tissue. It’s the fat marbled throughout then laden with fatty sauces or served with dips and spreads and flavored butters that bring people back for more.

Years ago when America went on a low-fat binge, manufacturers ended up reversing their position and putting the fat back in their products, claiming that weight-wise the added sugar that replaced the fat was as bad as the fat.

Manufacturers don’t care what effect their product has on your health, they used that as an excuse to sell more product by putting the fat back in. Sugar alone is not a fat replacement. In fact, what they did was keep the higher levels of sugar in play while adding back the fat. It’s not the sugar by itself. Just like it isn’t the lean flesh by itself, it’s the fat and always the fat.

So if humans are addicted to fat, that must mean we’re addicted to animals?

We can become just as addicted to plant fats. Think about the number of kernels of corn it takes to make one tablespoon of corn oil, or the number of olives to make the same? It doesn’t seem natural to squeeze an extraordinary number of corn kernels for a small amount of fat. But we do it. Think on that.

One day a week go without any form of fat, or start with one dish or one meal. Fat-Free. It doesn’t have to be Friday, it can be any day, any meal, any snack or beverage, but do it, commit to it.

Heroin is addictive, so why is it here on earth? For people to become addicted?

Resist temptation is what the addict must do to survive. Eventually the addictive drug will kill you, just as the addictive animal will do.

The tenacity of evil, remember that. The slaughter industries are not going to go quietly. You need to take charge of yourself instead of letting everybody else, complete strangers, be in charge of what you consume.

Live or die is where it leads. Don’t believe me? Ask any addict. Ask any heart recipient. Ask any liver recipient. Need a kidney transplant? Good luck. How about your brain? How’s it working for you? Need a new one? It’s easy enough to get one by eliminating the need for one.

Stop eating all parts of any animal or anyone who may in any way resemble one, in case you have animal-confusion regarding what lives, breathes, thinks, feels, walks or crawls.

A plant is a plant. Eat those if you are in the need, or in want of a brain transplant. The lower the fat content even from plants, the better. A little now and then, and a mini binge rarely but it’s on the menu should you want to indulge.

WELCOME TO FAT-FREE FRIDAY.

We tend to become addicted to that which is not good for ourselves in the first place. We’re always trying to control the amounts of bad stuff we consume, in absence of controlling that which is healthy for us by consuming more of it more often.

Increase that which is good, decrease that which is bad, then eliminate that which is bad and a burden will lift from you. That everybody else does it isn’t going to make you live a longer, healthier, happier life. They won’t either, so don’t allow them to drag you down.

Posted in BREAKFAST, FAT-FREE FRIDAY, HOW I'M DOING

IT’S TIME…

It’s time to get serious. Not that I haven’t been serious in my flight around the globe feeling out the terrain of weight gain and what causes it, besides over-eating. It’s just that I haven’t been serious about me actually losing the excess weight on my bones. I could have just eaten plain steamed veggies a few nuts and a few fresh fruits everyday and that would have done it. But people aren’t prepared to make that taste bud and palate sacrifice, and neither am I.

So, what better time to get serious than at breakfast.

4-12-2018 SHAR'S WEIGHT NAKED (almost)

I weighed in at 164 pounds: 7 pounds heavier than my last documented weigh-in on 5 August 2017, which was 157. I’m shooting for the thirties. I’m already there in my mind; I just have to do a little catch up. No lower than 130 no higher than 139. That’s safe and healthy for my frame, muscle fat bone content, activity level, injuries and age. Now find yours. That’s my figure.

It is about the weight once you consider and factor in everything else.

My total body has locked itself into the thirties. That’s my lock-in weight. No changes allowed. It took me a while to find it, but I did. I gained some weight since August 2017. I also gained some muscle and lost some fat. I got stronger despite my serious injuries. So here I am going for the gold of me.

So what’s for breakfast on this FAT-FREE FRIDAY the 13th?

FRUIT SALAD WITH AF FAT-FREE ORANGE MAYO SAUCE 2

Fresh fruit tossed with FAT-FREE AF ORANGE MAYO SAUCE (aka MORNING FRUIT SALAD)

The fruits I chose were:

ruby grapefruit, the whole fruit, not just half, peeled and segment

1 sliced banana

1 red apple, cored and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

FAT-FREE AF ORANGE MAYO fresh grind black pepper

fresh grind black pepper

https://fat-freechef.com/2018/03/04/fat-free-af-orange-mayo-sauce/

Toss it all together. Plate. Sprinkle with black pepper and eat.

Since this morning fruit salad contained 3 whole fruits, I spaced the consumption over a couple hours while I worked the computer, that way it functioned as breakfast and a mid-morning snack.

Now that’s a fruit salad to be savored!
