    Oh that Smell

    I'm waiting for wife to finish dinner, we're having pork chops and cauliflower. My question is, as she steams the cauliflower, how do you prevent that funky smell? Any suggestions?

    I add in plenty of herbs and spices, and I cook it in broth and a bit of white wine. The wine steam covers much of the cabbage-y smell.

    Consider it a competition. Fart violently and profusely until your wife can declare a winner. If you find cauliflower is too easy an opponent, try steaming some broccoli in the microwave.

    edit: Your wife will love this. Fresh farts contain flavonoids and cause endorphic reactions in a woman's brain.

    edit 2: That might be chocolate, I'm not sure. I say keep steady and maintain the course while I do further research.

    I guffawed. I admit it.
    With Mark's help, I've conquered depression, acne, rosacea, scale obsession, migraines, and lethargy. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

    Cook some brussels sprouts at the same time. You won't even notice the cauliflower smell.

    Good reason to eat it raw or just lightly nuked, IMHO.

    Lemon juice helps with the odor, AFATG.

    Ask her to please roast it.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
