F-FC ClipBoard: Warning. You may want to use 2 packages, as the temptation to keep nibbling after these nuggets are cooked is strong. Very strong.
Partially thaw a 10 oz. bag of gardein meatless chick’n strips.
Lay them out onto a board and separate them.
Cut each strip crosswise into 4 pieces.
In large skillet, over medium heat, melt 2 T. extra virgin olive oil.
Add chick’n pieces in an even layer.
Salt and pepper as desired.
Cook till browned on the bottoms.
Flip pieces over and continue to brown as many surfaces as possible.
I like mine a little crunchy on the outside and tender inside.
When done remove to plate to cool for whatever recipe you’ll be using them in.
Use in stir-frys, chick’n salad by cutting them up into smaller pieces, or skewered with toothpicks as an hors d’oeurve with dipping sauces (barbecue or tartar sauces come to mind). Or add them to chili.
Do you think it’s time to put the whole world on a diet? I think so.
The world, the whole world, needs to stop eating animals.
Everybody – adults, children, and other animals too. We need to find a way to feed the carnivorous animals on the planet plant food. We can do it with the will.
We need to replace animal with plant.
It’s a lot easier and cost efficient to grow plants, than it is to birth and raise animals. It doesn’t make any logical sense to do anything but. So there’s a drought, the plants dry up and we eat our family?
That’s where we are right now? We’re eating our families, so the conditions of the earth must be in dire straits?
We’re all animals. We need to take care of each other, firstly, by not cooking each other. Why are we cooking animals? When plants are bountiful? Are the other animals cooking us? What are we saving the plants for?
What I’m hearing is that humans have their logic gene turned off. Locked in the off positions – all of them. How did that happen?
Bad times made you eat your own children, or your neighbor’s children and they ate yours, for so long that your genetics changed and you became oblivious to eating flesh and blood.
When the earth returned to bountiful, you couldn’t switch it off, so you substituted any other animal to replace the human animal? That’s as good as you could do?
You couldn’t get the taste and craving for flesh and blood to disappear, so you satisfied it instead with the flesh and blood of anyone else who could run. The running part was important to you.
Well that’s enough of that!!
I have made for you today a simple, cheap, but elegant as well as utilitarian dish that you can make yourself, that requires no cooking and only a few minutes to prepare.
You can make it for any meal or snack.
It’s filling. It’s high fat, high protein and the carbs are negligible.
You can eat it whether you’re dieting or not.
On the 5:2 diet you can use this dish on the days when you eat 500 calories of only fat and protein. No animal. Plants.
This is how I made it:
Buy fresh ground peanut butter or if allergic, then buy some other nut butter that you’re not allergic to.
Measure exactly 1 teaspoon and put it in a flatware or sterling spoon.
Top it with a little mustard of choice.
Then top the mustard with small cuts of veggie doo-dads.
I used beet horseradish for one.
Capers for another.
Thinly sliced Japanese cucumber for another.
Tiny matchstick size dill gherkin pickle.
Kalamata olive halves plus shaker style vegan parmesan
You see now that you know how to substitute. That substitution gene never did get turned off. You know that you have that skill. Call it improvisation. You have it. You substituted the human for plants – that’s why even today you regard other animals as plants.
Then when the earth became bountiful again – with plants and animals – you substituted other animals for the human – to this day – except in some remote regions where they continue the practice of eating humans.
That’s not you though. You have what it takes to replace the animal with the plant.
Who are you kidding? You thought your ancestors would see you eating plants and forgive you the animal?
They see everything.
This AMAZING SPECTACULAR 6 bites to freedom will unlock the logic genes your ancestors, through their actions, locked many many years ago.
It’s a perfect match. Just how you like it.
6 BITES TO FREEDOM. Or 5 or 1 or 8 or as many as you want. In the middle of the night when I get hungry, I go for peanut or cashew butter with sweet relish and mustard. m-m-m-m. One is all it takes. m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m
Use commercial peanut butter if you prefer.
On your intermittent fasting days eat 1 SPOON FILL 6 times a day. That’ll do ya just fine! I did it, I know.
There’s a Bi-Rite grocery store not far from us that sells Polar Vegan Jerky in its dollar section. I often buy it for Steve and he takes it into work and shares it with his buddies. It doesn’t matter to them that’s it’s vegan. It’s good and they like it.
A couple of days ago he tried to buy it online, thinking he’d buy it by the case. Amazon.com was not carrying it, or were out of it or it was no longer available. Whatever they indicated, prompted Steve to call the company. He found a number, but didn’t know who to ask for, so when the robot asked for the first three letters of the person he wanted to reach he said, “Joh”, thinking that someone in the company had to be named John. He figured if he could reach a person, any person, then they could direct him to the right place.
The first thing the guy says was, “this isn’t a store”. Steve knew it wasn’t but then explained how a bunch of people really like the Polar Jerky and amazon.com said it was no longer available and he wanted to know where he could buy some by the case. John says that he didn’t know anything about it, but that maybe it was discontinued. He’d call Steve back later.
In the meanwhile, Steve goes to this Bi-Rite store and cleans the bin out. He’s thinking it’s been discontinued and he wanted at least what the grocery store had left.
John calls back a couple of hours later and says, look I got it back online on amazon.com. You can go there right now and order it.
A soft chip that satisfies. If serving guests, sprinkle with fresh grind sea salt and black pepper, smoked paprika and maple sugar. If serving yourself, as a mid-day or evening snack, eat plain. They’re delicious either way!
Makes 1 heaping cup – enough for 1-4 guests or for yourself as a snack that could last 3 days, or use as a salad topper
