Cilantro – The Forking Truth is That Soap Taste Might be Poison

IMG_4101

Some people love cilantro and to other people cilantro is inedible and taste like a mouth full of soap.

Truth- Some people are genetically predisposed to dislike cilantro.

Truth- Some people have a natural reason to dislike cilantro such as: sinus or oral  infection and         low zinc levels

Truth- Fluoride Sodium is used in pesticides and taste like soap to humans because it’s poisonous. The pesticide might have been sprayed on the cilantro and that is what some people might be tasting.

THE FORKING TRUTH IS THAT SOAP TASTE MIGHT BE POISON

True Story this is how I forking found out.

I grow some mint in my yard. I love mint. I can eat mint everywhere and all the mint I purchase from the store agrees with me. I live in Arizona where it’s different from other parts of the country and heavy pesticides are used regularly all over and around your house to keep out very dangerous insects like scorpions, desert spiders and more pests. My mint that grows by my house gets sprayed with these strong pesticides and always taste like soap to me no matter how much I wash the mint. I don’t have an issue with mint. But I do taste something is wrong with the mint so it’s totally makes sense that some people also taste pesticides on the cilantro.

The Forking Truth is that Soap Taste with Cilantro Might be Poison.

Nearly everyone loves poppers but sometimes you might want to indulge in a lighter version. These poppers are made with baby bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, garlic scallion, fat free cheeses and a small amount of whole wheat panko bread crumbs.

These poppers are easy to make and you just throw them in the oven and in about 10 minutes they are done.

I do note that peppers always differ in size and also in heat so your portion and your heat of popper might differ. I recommend Adding the chopped jalapeño last so you can judge how much heat you want. You might want more or you might want less heat.

Ingredients for about 12 servings (about 4 poppers per serving)

24 baby bell peppers

7 oz fat free shredded cheddar cheese

8 oz fat free cream cheese

4 jalapeños remove stems and mince (*note this ingredient you might want to add at the end so you can control the heat)

1 garlic clove minced

2 scallion minced

1/2 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs

optional fresh ground salt and pepper for finishing

Directions.

Set your oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut each bell in a diagonal removing ribs and seeds.

IMG_3860

Put peppers to the side.

Mix up your cheeses, with jalapeños, garlic and scallions

and with a butter knife fill each pepper half.

IMG_3861

Now dip them lightly in the panko.

IMG_3862

Set your peppers on the baking sheet and place in your 400 degree F oven. They will be done in about 10 minutes. When you pull them out add some fresh ground salt and pepper if desired.

Here are your next to fat free skinny baked poppers! You can eat a bunch they are very light and tasty. They don’t drip because of the fat free cheeses and you get just enough crumbs to be happy. The scallions and garlic help to add flavor to cover the fat free cheeses.

The forking truth is that these aren’t the best popper out there because they aren’t fried and are filled with fat free cheese but they still are TASTY, next to fat free and might be the lowest calorie popper out there.

Fat Free Healthier Horseradish Potato Salad Recipe

Fat Free Healthier Horseradish Potato Salad

Fat Free Healthier Horseradish Potato Salad

It’s very easy to prepare delicious foods using indulgent ingredients like butter, cheese, heavy cream and bunches of others favorites. When you try to prepare your foods low fat you have to bump up the flavors and use a few tricks.

I used waxy red skin less starchy potatoes for this potato salad and instead of boiling the potatoes I roasted them in the oven with a minimal amount of cooking spray till fork tender so they won’t absorb as much dressing as boiled potatoes. The dressing is made from 10 calorie a Tablespoon Fat Free Mayo, Non-Fat Greek Yogurt,  jarred horseradish and dijon mustard. To infuse flavor to the potatoes I added two Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to bump up the flavor that’s missing from the non-fat dressing. When cooking very low fat you have to be selective about the salt and pepper you use. Sea Salt is the best tasting salt that I know of and Tellicherry is the best tasting of the black peppercorns I know of.

Significate reduction in fat, calories and carbs verses regular full fat recipes.

Ingredients for 8 servings

2 lbs red potatoes washed, cut in fork friendly sized cubes

1/2 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt

1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons horseradish (from a jar)

1 Tablespoon dijon mustard

In a small bowl mix together the mayo, yogurt, horseradish and dijon and set to side.

If you didn’t alway chop your scallions, parsley, celery, dill do it now or just place them in your bigger bowl for mixing.

season them with your salt and pepper and while warm put them in your mixing bowl with the vegetables and sprinkle the vinegar on the potatoes to season them further.

The Healthiest Cheapest and Best Snack Food can be made in your Forking Microwave Oven

IMG_9287

Carrot Chips- carrots are cheap about $2.99 for 5 lbs. Just slice them thin place in a microwave safe plate for about 3 minutes. Wipe the plate dry add a light coating of nonstick spray to your plate turn the carrots over and they only need 1-2 minutes more and you have chips. Finish with some fresh ground sea salt.

 

Potato Chips

Potato Chips- Potatoes are forking cheap. You can usually buy a ten pound bag of spuds for less than $3.00. Potato chips cook up faster than carrots in the microwave. Just slice them thin and try 3 minutes in the microwave. Wipe out plate or bowl and potato that isn’t done put back and microwave 30 seconds at a time till done. Finish with sea salt

 

IMG_2924

Pop corn not from a store bought bag with that yucky chemical goo but using dried kernels. Just 1/4 cup of kernels in a brown paper lunch bag that is folded close. Let the microwave go about 2 minutes (or when you hear the popping almost stopping) and you have cheap healthy pop corn. No fat is needed. Loose pop corn is very cheap and a 10 lb. bag will last you a year and it only cost about $1.00 a lb. I do note for the best tasting and textured pop corn you need to use the BIG kernels.

Healthy Creamy Low Fat Roasted Cauliflower and Garbanzo Bean Salad Recipe

Healthy Creamy Low Fat Cauliflower and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Healthy Creamy Low Fat Roasted Cauliflower and Garbanzo Bean Salad

I came up with a lighter salad that’s satisfying, creamy and very low fat… that’s good and easy to prepare. I have a secret ingredient that might scare most people away. It’s silken tofu. It turns out that you can blend the silken tofu to a thick cream and flavor it to make it tasty. It comes out  tasting like you might have mixed calorie laden mayonnaise with a calorie laden herbed cream cheese. The end result is tasty and this is a good Monday-Friday recipe so you can splurge on the weekend. I also do note this salad is best fresh when you mix it up because the next day the dressing soaks in. So use fresh or keep the dressing on the side to mix in fresh.

Silken tofu is far lighter in calories, fat and carbs than mayonnaise.

For 12 oz of mayonnaise that you might need for a mayonnaise type salad recipe you would be adding on about

mayonnaise…………………………………………………..                             and silken tofu is

1,332 calories………………………..About 12 oz ……                             only 200 calories

113.64 g fat……………………………About 12 oz…..                              only 8g fat

81.36 carbs…………………………….About 12 oz…..                             only 8 carbs

That is a significant difference……………………….

To prepare this salad you start by roasting a head of cauliflower till it browns a little and season it with salt and pepper.

Some Forking Truth about Lunch Meat

IMG_8903

Lunch meat is that easy to use already prepared food product that is sliced and ready to go in-between bread with all kinds of toppings to make an easy, quick, tasty sandwich. But here is some Forking Truth about lunch meat that you might not think about.

When you go to the deli counter at your local grocery store they offer three different kinds of lunch meat for you to purchase.

The most expensive deli meats are called “whole cuts”. They are what they sound like. They are flavored whole pieces of meat. They might be roast beef, corned beef, or turkey breast.

IMG_8904

Other meats are called “sectioned and formed products”. They are bonded sections of meat that are formed together with forking meat glue made from non-meat additives. Some examples are cooked ham or multi part turkey breast. These meats are formed into a shape that looks like it could have came that way to fool you.

IMG_0046

Lastly are processed products. They are bologna, other meats and hotdogs.

Processed meats are chopped, seasoned, and formed into shape with forking weird technology.

Most lunch meats contain nitrates and nitrates have been linked to certain forms of cancer. Lunch meat manufactures add the nitrates to keep the meat fresh for long periods of time.

That was some Forking Truth about lunch meat.
