Ive been thinking about trying a diet consisting of only seasoned chicken breast, and drinking only water.

>large protein intake will leave me feeling full sooner and for longer, so i binge eat less
>no carbs, so I reduce dental plaque formation (which i seem to be very susceptible to)
>easy to prepare and dont have to think about it.

>would probably get extremely boring very quickly
>limited nature of the diet means that perhaps I would suffer malnutrition

thoughts? anyone here tried meat only before?

Too much protein will get converted into sugar.
Eat brussel sprouts, broccoli and other steamed veggies with your chicken. The fiber will also prevent you from becoming constipated.

>> No.12651051

If you're doing that too I recommend supplementing your new diet with vegetables. They're mostly low calorie, packed full of vitamins and minerals, and very filling. They can also add variety to your diet depending on the dish you make, as the dishes you can make with vegetables and chicken are almost endless.

You're probably just overripening them or buying a different kind of tomato entirely. Try a bunch of different types/ripenesses. I tend to prefer mine when they just start to get orange, so everything is still firm. Romas are good for this too.

>> No.12651050

Tasteless supermarket tomatoes are picked damn near green, miles away from you, and the variety of tomato is selected for durability and resistance to damage during long travel in a train or truck. Quality and taste are last on the importance list.

Grow your own heirloom tomatoes, or buy local tomatoes from a farmer near you, the difference in quality should shock you.

30 min is decent. Can do 20 if adding brown sugar. Up to an hour for making a curry base.

Spices definitely, but I also found out that I don't use half as much as salt (and MSG) as the restaurants do. I was using all the right ingredients and spices when I first started making curry, but turns out that I just needed more salt.

>> No.12650777

Nice. With regards to curry base, have you ever tried to make the base gravy by blending the onions / shallots rather than finely chopping them? I presume it'd be more prone to burning, but I don't wanna ladle the hot sauce back and forth in my blender and I cannot be bothered to use a stick blender.

>> No.12650794

Why wouldn't you take the garlic out? Obviously you want to add it back in later, but if you let it cook too long, it becomes bitter and loses its flavor.

>> No.12650809

Go on a diet with no fat intake and see what happens

It depends on how much you're making, but usually 30-60 minutes. If doing a huge batch of onions in a large pot it can take up to 2 hours.

Or if you're going to be cooking something for a long time where the fresh garlic will lose some of its potency anyway. Fresh garlic is better if it's only going to be cooked for a few minutes, or for salad dressings and stuff like that.
