Title: The Food Thread
Post by: J-ROC on July 19, 2004, 10:58:02 AM
YES!  Leave it to fatty here to make a thread about food. :D

Anyway, this thread is for all things food.  Not just cheese, not just Gunther, or whatever.

FOOD FOOD FOOD.

Talk about cooking, talk about your favourite foods, talk about the foods you hate the most.
Talk about your favorite resaurants, etc.  


FOOOOOOOOOD.

(I'll start)

I hate seafood and mushrooms.

I also cooked fajitas last night.  Worst fajitas ever.

I suddenly had a mental image of a dating show. You know when the contestants are all sitting on stools saying "I love loong, moonlit strolls on a calm beach" breathily, with heaving bosom?
"I love long, moonlit bowls of ice cream..."
"I dislike spinach...."

Things I like cooking:

Spaghetti and meat sauce (Extra-lean ground beef)
Baked chicken breast with lemon-pepper seasoning.  Mmm...
Eggs, other than poached.  Boiled being my favorite.

Fave foods: Pizza, strawberries, lemonade, iced tea, root beer, spaghetti, broccoli, chicken, milk, ice cream, CHEESE!

Un-fave foods: Brussell sprouts, lima beans, ham, turkey, asparagus, steak, ribs.

Fave salad dressings: Honey Mustard, Creamy Italian.

Un-fave salad dressings: Any variety of Ranch. Blech.

Post by: J-ROC on July 20, 2004, 10:50:00 AM
That's why you shake it up enough to emulsify it.  ;B

I like Italian and French dressing.  

I like Cesar Salads (when Neil doesn't have him in an oven, he's apparently a salad)  and Greek Salads (minus the olives..I dislike the olives muchly).

I tihnk for supper tonight I'm going ot go to the grocery store, get some beef, onions, and a taco making kit thingy.  Mmm, tacos.

I also have this seasoning stuff I bought at the Calgary Stampede.  You mix 1 cup of Mayo and 1 cup of sour cream plus this seasoning, let it chill for an hour, and then you have dip!  I think I'll make dill tonight and have it with some pita bread. (I don't eat potato chips any more...)

In Jeysie's defense, Cesar changes his name when he's a salad because he doesn't want people to know it's him. :P I mean, what would they think??
Title: Re:The Food Thread

In the salad's defense, it's not its fault for having a similar name to Cesar.  XD

Back on  topic... sort of...

I like: anything that meaty and fried... (yes I'm going to die early but happy  :) )

I'm not a fan of what most would call healthy foods... a cardiologist is going love me!

I do like humus though...perhaps my saving grace...
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Jeysie on July 22, 2004, 10:47:01 AM
I'm semi-fortunate... I actually like healthy foods, for the most part. I like fruits and vegetables... indeed, when I was a kid, I used to eat the vegetables and hide the meat in a napkin! :suffer: Even now, the only meat I really have a major taste for is chicken. There are some other meats I like in small doses, though. I also like whole-grain cereals and breads and that sort of thing.

My main downfalls, weight-wise, is that I get hungry all the time, and I have a weakness for dairy products, especially cheese.

Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: J-ROC on July 22, 2004, 11:01:35 AM
Drink lots of water when you're hungry.  I find it tends to help.

Or eat six, notably smaller, meals a day.  Your metabolism works better if it's always working.
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Jeysie on July 22, 2004, 11:05:32 AM
Heh. When I'm home, I usually don't have a problem. Unfortunately, trying to keep my stomach happy with my schedule on work days is nigh impossible. :P Eating one third of my lunch every couple hours helps a little, but it's still not great.

I wish my body would just work like everyone else's does. :P </rant>

And, if any of you discover you've got Crohn's disease, James' advice is KEY.  I've got to do that, I need to have twice the daily calories of a normal person to sustain my weight (and since I'm still ten pounds less than what they want me to have.... ::)) ANyhow, the point I was making is that James has hit the hammer with the nail!  Or some old adage involving hammers and nails.... 8)
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: zerogravityfire on July 22, 2004, 12:08:37 PM
You know, when it somes to the food they would love to eat the most right now, it is usually widely different if the question was: what kind of food would you eat if you had to eat only that every day for the rest of your life.  

So that's what I'm asking. What dish/food would you choose if you were only allowed to eat that for the rest of your life? And the reasoning behind is NOT whether it holds more nutrients or is easy to make etc. The sole reason behind your answer should be what food would taste best in the long run, the enjoyment of eating it for the long haul.

I think my choice is lasagna.

Also, weight trainers/muscle guys/etc. eat about 5 or 6 meals a day...sometimes with a meal being just a protein shake.  But it's having something in your stomach that will get your metabolism up that works.

Manocotti...mmmmm (I know, I know, my spelling's horrible :P)

I realize that this is only one fitness person's opinion, but they suggest that protein shakes are enough.  You should be having foods that are naturally high in proteins.  Like cottage cheese + yogurt as a meal.  Or a smoothie made with fruit and yogurt, chicken breast, etc.
One of the key things to point out, too, it to have a active lifestyle.  The workout plan that this fitness monkey had was for working out 45 minutes a day, maximum....but it's supposed to be an intense workout.

AANYWAY, enough of my ramblings on that.  If I could only do what I say, I wouldn't be such a chubby man. :)

As for one food that, if I had to, I would eat every day for the rest of my life...

...well, I'm not sure there is one.  No matter how much you enjoy a certain food, you're bound to get sick of it after awhile and wish for something else.

But Lasagna would be good.  Canneloni (sp?),  Chicken wings.  Lots of stuff I really really like....but yeah, can't eat one thing forever.
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Yonkey on July 22, 2004, 03:17:22 PM
I could probably eat pizza forever.  There are thousands of combinations and not all are unhealthy.  ;P

And yeah, you could lose weight fast by replacing junk food with healthy junk food (i.e. fruit & veggies, soy or ultra-low fat rice cakes, etc), until you quit eating junk altogether, and of course drinking lots of water.  :)
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: J-ROC on July 22, 2004, 04:49:51 PM
Yeah, I used to drink pop and crap whenever I was driving places (ie: Whitecout to Calgary) but have since changed to water or juice.  It's made a noticable difference.  The fact I haven't eaten potato chips in some time also helps.  
And snacking is actually quite alright, as long as it's low calorie and healthy stuff.  Like veggies, of course.  some fresh green pepper, broccoli, cauliflour, carrots, etc....good stuff! <3
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Questing Character on July 23, 2004, 08:25:30 AM
 :'( Everybody's listing foods for snacking on that I can't eat!!

But that's alright.  Ice cream is one of the healthiest things for me to eat anyways. XB (This diet's not *all* bad. :P)
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: koko_99_2001 on July 23, 2004, 08:39:59 AM
How about adding chocolate syrup and resees sprinkles to the icecream?  Now that's good!

So, what should someone who can't cook (and doesn't have time to anyway), gets hungry every two to three hours, and wants to lose weight, eat? ;P

Not that my body is capable of losing weight, anyway. I remember when I was a teenager, I spent two months eating right and exercising an hour each weekday at the local gym (not to mention walking everywhere as much as I could) and by the end of it I *gained* five pounds. What a complete waste of time *that* was. :P

Of course, you could have been gaining muscle, Jeysie.  I walked every day last summer, and put on more weight before I lost it.  Muscle weighs more than fat.

My favourite cereal: Honey Nut Cheerios
My favourite snack: tortialla chips w/ shreaded cheese
My favourite fruit: strawberries
My favourite vegetable: black-eyed peas and potatoes

Cat gets the record for listing the *most* things I can't eat! WOOHOO!!
And in case anybody's wondering, I don't really have more than a few favorite foods...they don't fit into those categories...so that's why I'm not answering and talking about my diet instead. ;D
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Jeysie on July 23, 2004, 02:43:19 PM
So basically, you're not allowed to eat anything healthy? You have some weird doctors. I mean, I know you're supposed to gain weight, but I would think it would be better on your body to gain weight eating healthy stuff... ???

Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: J-ROC on July 23, 2004, 04:43:53 PM
Well, Jeysie, maybe you shouldn't be guaging it by weight loss, but rather by how you feel.  I know when I was boxing for awhile, there were some nights I got only 5 hours sleep but still had the energy for the entire day.  Where now, I can get a full 8 hours sleep and still be tired.

And I'm not making a direct correlation to you, but there are people who by definition are "obese" and can still do the Ironman triathalon.  Point is, health isn't necessarily a weight issue. (on top of Cat's point that muscle weighs more than fat)
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Jeysie on July 24, 2004, 07:18:54 AM
J-R: Perhaps... it was something like 9 years ago, so I don't remember much about how I felt. :P

The *only* time I remember "getting smaller" was when I had to stay at a foster home for a while. We'd have a bowl of cereal before leaving in the morning for school, then my foster mother would cook up a dinner when we got home. (A quite good dinner at that!) She completely didn't understand the concept of a snack. (If I asked her for some fruit or something sometime after dinner, she'd ask if I was hungry because I didn't eat enough at dinner. She didn't really understand the concept of eating something just because it tastes good. Just as well, I suppose.)

I'd end up not eating lunch, because the food at my school was horrible. Finally, I had to make a 45 minute walk to the house from school every weekday. Dunno how much I lost exactly, but my pants got awfully loose.

Of course, I'd never be able to pull that off again... if I tried eating only two meals now, I'd be headachy and tummy-grumbly for most of the day. :P (Yeah, I know that's not exactly healthy to only eat twice a day, but it *is* the only way I ever lost weight! :P )

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: Yonkey on July 24, 2004, 07:30:35 AM
Actually, I hated that part about university too.  Since classes are arranged so horribly, you can't always eat lunch/dinner at the same time.  There are some days you can, and other days you have to wait an hour and a half.  Needless to say, no matter how much food I brought, some days I would be starving and some days I would be forcing myself to eat (then starve later when I actually was hungry). :X
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: J-ROC on July 24, 2004, 10:03:55 AM
I packed lunches and ate them in class whenever I was hungry.  I did this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on year, as I had classes from 8:30 to 13:30 straight with no breaks.
One day I decided to get a nice caffeine high and get all the caffeine loaded teas between each class, starting just before my first class at 8:30.  As you can guess, by 13:30, I was pretty wired.  (and I had to pee lots! :D)

I <3 tea.
Title: Re:The Food Thread
Post by: koko_99_2001 on July 24, 2004, 02:49:42 PM
Well, I was in a hurry when typing the other one...so I'll add on right here.

There's a pregnant woman in my first class (she's only 4 mos along)...and everyday, she reaches into her backpack, and pulls out food.  Twenty minutes later, she's reaching again and pulling out more food.  It's hilarious!  Of course, it's also acceptable, since she's pregnant...but I find it SO funny.

On Thursday, we had just finished our test and a group of us were waiting in the hall just talking, and she goes "is there a microwave anywhere on this floor?"  I say that it's probably in the teacher's lounge.  So she decides that we're going to find it and she pulls out her "Easy Mac"  We walk the whole floor and can't find a microwave.  So she goes into a teacher's office and asks...and is allowed to use that teacher's microwave!!  At least the pregnant woman got her "Easy Mac."  I'm still laughing over it.

It's a lot easier for you guys to visit me in Canada than for me to leave.  So there. :D

Tonight, I'm going to cook ribeye steak.  
I'm going to cut it into bite sized chunks, marinate and cook it in a homemade sauce.

The sauce:
50/50 Red wine/water (maybe 1 cup each, I don't measure dang it! :D)
4 cloves of freshly minced garlic
1/2 large yellow onion (1 small one, use own discretion)
1/2 cup Soya Sauce
1/4 cup Oyster Sauce
2 Tablespoon(s) of Italian seasoning (can usually be bought as such, oregano/thyme/rosemary/basil mix would be an okay substitute)
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon pepper (I like pepper)
Couple dabs of hot sauce

At least that's what I'm going to aim for.  I'll let you all know how it turns out. :D

We only weren't allowed eating in labs or computer rooms.  Normal classrooms were open season.


well considering in 6th form our form room was at first the library and then a computer room, followed by another move to yet another computer room...well we kinda ate in there anyway. we had a pushover tutor, and if he wanted me to take the register for him then he would hav to hush about me eating in there.
However i migrated to the large step to sun myself in the summer, which our head teacher didnt approve of, hence the daily ritual of her trying to move us away from the step because we made the place look untidy! She never won! Neither did our form teacher! we ate and sat where we pleased![/glow]

During the regular semester, it depends on the classroom (we have the old classrooms and the master classrooms--master classrooms have all the expensive equiptment).  In the master ones, we could only drink smething if it had a lid to it.  But during the summer semesters, the professors don't really care if you eat, since classes streatch between 2-3 hours...and others streatch 4-5 hours.  Can't really go that long without food :P

Well, that recipe I listed a few threads ago worked out really really well.  Just change the ratio of wine/water to 75/25.
I also added a tbsp or so of worcheschire sauce.
Keep in mind you should cook it in a covered cooking dish.  If you want to thicken up the juice/sauce, then uncover it and let it boil off a bit.

We were not allowed to eat during lectures, nor where we allowed to eat in the classrooms. The only exception to one of those rules was in my sixth year of high school, when one of the privileges was having your lunch in one of the classrooms. Mainly because another one of those privileges was going outside from the school during the noon-break and get something to eat, for example a pizza, which ofcourse would not be appropriate to eat that in front of all of the other students who didn't have those privileges.

I'm gonna have me a large stack of pancakes(the Swedish kind no less), cuz I've been good and healthy for a while now and deserve to pig out a little. Or maybe a nice cheese cake? Ooooh, the choices, the choices. It's not gonna do well for my waist line that is already more than it should be but I don't care right now. :suffer:

I've gotten to the point where I really don't care what I eat.  I just won't eat it in access.  Yes, I'd love to lose a few pounds, but why not be happy with who I am?? *shrugs*  That's just become my take on things.

I can't eat too much, because my stomach can't take it. It actually warns me when it's nearing its full capacity. Although I don't eat loads, I don't eat that little either. Anyway, no matter what I eat (assuming it's not fast food everyday), I don't gain weight, nor do I lose weight, I remain under-weight. THe only thing that slighly increased my weight was my drinking full-fat (?) milk instead of half-fat (?) milk.

That's a bad guarantee.

I've gained and lost around 30 pounds, within the last year. Almost nobody noticed, even then, it was after a lost/gained over 20 pounds.

If I threw twenty pounds on you today, people would notice tomorrow.
People generally don't tend to notice when you're seen on a regular basis and over an extended period of time.  And even if they do notice, they still may not say anything.

Got a couple of coupons for In-and-out burgers yesterday. They are definately way up there in the best tasting burgers in the world list.

I do get sick of fast food pretty quickly now, though. That's a good thing I guess, but I've never experienced it before so I'm like "what do I eat now??"

Hardees has some good burgers now...but the one in my town takes WAY to long to get the food to you.  Plus, they don't ever have enough employees on duty, so it takes even longer.  So while the burgers are good, I don't get them often...

I was surprised to find a little while back that Hardee's even still existed. The last branch in Western MA that I know of closed literally over a decade ago. :P

I don't remember much about their burgers, but I remember them having awesome apple turnovers.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Oh man... I literally survived on Hardees's last week. If you think im exaggerating you're wrong. I made more midnight runs to that place than i've collectively eaten fat food in my life.
Once we "accidentally" took a "short cut" don a one way rode. Just our luck security was driving down it at the same time. I'll never forget what my friend said to him.

"But, we're only going one way officer!!"

This isn't true(as far as I know), but I think it's funny. I'll try to remember it, as well as I can.

A guy is driving down a one-way road, the wrong way. A cop pulls him over, to the side of the road. The cop asks him "Where do you think you were going?".
The guy says
"I guess it doesn't matter now. I see everyone's headed back now".

I'll see if I can find the exact wording, later.

Hardees has some good burgers now..
Hardees obviosuly hasn't set foot on the European mainland (yet), at least not Flanders.
AFAIK, we've got McD, BK, and IIRC I also saw a KFC somewhere sometime... Ad ofcourse, the other 'big' fast-food player overhere... 'Quick'!

I don't think our neares McD is open 'till' midnight. At least at 10 PM they shut the door I always enter through.

James, I'm sure it wasn't a reflection of your cooking.  She was probably already feeling sick.

Hardees has the big Angus burger now...where it's like half a pound of beef!  Really good!  CC, you mentioned KFC--talk about one of my favorite places to go.  But, of course, I'm a Southern girl, fried chicken is a staple to our diet!

Honestly, with all the new findings of the benefits of chocolate, why are we still afraid of eating it? It's a vegetable. Sure it tastes good, but it is still a vegetable. It is actually GOOD for your heart, so the more you eat the better the heart. Sure they say it is mainly the dark chocolate that has the benefits, but just eat a dump truck load more of the milk kind and you're home free.
   Add to that the fact that your body digests and metabolizes better if you aren't feeling guilty about what you eat and you actually enjoy it. Your attitude about your food matters. That doesn't mean you should smile when you eat, b/c that would be disgusting. Noone likes a dinner partner that chews with his/her mouth open ;).

So in the words of Goofy: eat, drink and be happy and tomorrow, we diet.

/me thinks there's stuff in the dark chocolate that's not in the milk chocolate, so you can eat a truck load milk chocolate and still not reap benefits equal to eating one bar of dark chocolate.
BTW, I don't like eating dark chocolate, too bitter for my taste. :-\

So in the words of Goofy: eat, drink and be happy and tomorrow, we diet.
Why do we (I) need to diet? ::)
