cooked parsnips in a salad?  that is really 'far out', as they used to say.

Okay, so now that I know that I am a nonnie, I need ideas, aside from powder and seaweed, to get more protein in my diet.  

And seaweed gives me zits.


If you wish, I would encourage you to try organic seaweed, which contains less contaminates, pesticides, other chemicals from the seaweed harvesting process.  

There may be a possibility that your body has been having a reaction towards the processing procedure of seaweed, and not the seaweed source itself.

Seaweed: What in the world does it taste like?  I saw some in plastic bags in the health food store.  What do you do with it?

I use seaweed as like a spice or a seasoning. A little bit in the broth of whatever I'm cooking makes a nice rich flavor. It's more natural with seafood, yet I find it works with beef as well.

I also use some kombu when cooking beans, it makes them nice and tender plus I like the flavor (no other seasoning needed, if desired.)

Otherwise you can make seaweed salads, sushi. Would probably be good in some vegetable dishes but I have not experimented there yet.

Nori is great as a scrambled egg wrap (with a little olive oil). Nori can also be used instead of bread to wrap meats. Arame is good with cooked kale. Wakami is good as a seaweed salad. The choices are endless. Oftentimes, I get a craving to eat nori right out of the package, without anything else.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I thin seaweed or nori has a slight salty taste to it, I heat each sheet over a burner on my stove, setting it on a spatula, until it turns green, moving it slowly, than moving the spatula off the stove and taking the corner and flipping it over, and doing it to that side to,  it turns from black to green, and looks more digestible, I will break it into squares, rectangles, or little tiny piece like the shape of fish food, and add it to V8 juice and heat it up and add it to my ground sirloin beef.  Or grab a piece of chicken and wrap it over and take one or two bites.

shred those into salads, or vegetable soups, it ups their mineral content as well!

I finished the last of my buffalo stew this morning.  Now I wonder what protein to have for breakfast in the morning.  I want at QUICK FAST BREAKFAST.

Okay, Ghee is a good topic.  What in the world does it taste like?  I saw it once in the health food store.  Is is not cheap.  Do you use it like olive oil in a skillet?

Okay, I read it.  How about store bought?  Would that be okay?

Organic, yes. I would stay away from the non-organic.

Chili with green beans for breakfast.  It is 4:11a.m. this morning and it is too early to be cooking.  I am having to wait for it to cook and I am not happy.  I guess it is poor planning on my part, but I will try to do better.  While I am waiting for it to cook I am eating walnuts, pineapple and prunes.  I love a lot of good food for breakfast.

Sliced raw parsnips are wonderful in salads.  When the parsnips are young and slender they are slightly sweet and less 'woody' tasting; they add an interesting taste and flavor to fresh salads.

I have purchased the aforementioned type described and have sliced them raw into salads.  Or I have eaten them raw as a vegetable crudite for snacking.

I find that larger and perhaps more mature parsnips lend better to steaming and other forms of cooking methods.

I have to admit I was not impressed with parsnips.  They taste too much like perfume.
