    Leaning on soy milk or powder for energy is frowned upon, but an additive like that is not really comparable. If you don't experience a reaction then finish the bottle, though simple...

    Humans in food secure countries all seem to take 12~18% of kcal as protein when provided a choice. Anecdotally, levels above that make folks queasy around meat and require modern concoctions to...

    Welcome! Fruit & nuts are both elective in PB, so maybe.

    I'm also pretty serious about costs, and sometimes embracing variety is what saves cash. I take a moment each week to skim online...

    I do a variation of this for lunch, using silicone muffin cups to bake and a mesh produce bag to transport. I microwave them at work for 90~120 seconds though they are edible cold. I typically add...

    80/20 was never meant to be precise--the main idea is to aim for 100 then not panic when life happens.

    Now I'm curious about the gap between what folks think versus what sells. Pizza, soda, and ice cream are "unhealthy" but every retailer I've seen devotes a full aisle to each.

    Consider the delivery vehicle.

    Sauce recipes that call for a teaspoon = good
    Baking recipes that call for a cup = probably less good

    Even with no hydrogenation, some samples of vegetable oil have 2~4% trans fat so ruthless exclusion is best. Dodging it at a fast food place is probably not possible.

    Whole foods are mostly water. For example a 250g orange may contain 25g carbohydrate.

    108g protein as refined powder weighs 3.8 ounces
    108g protein in a turkey breast weighs 16 ounces

    Good to hear!
    I find squash and potatoes very filling whereas cereal & juice are anxious stimulants. "Quality drives quantity" as some say.

    They are about 1% starch so 150-200g from carrot alone will hit a volume limit.

    I measure carbohydrate as pounds of tuber & fruit, and use carrots as neither.
