ShadowlinePimp God bless you HOOKS. I hope you bang the hell out of some really hot chick today.
jason hissong Our currency should be altered to read IN HOOKS WE TRUST.
Feast (ha) your eyes on this:
Rocky Shepheard has perfected a paradox: a vegan egg yolk, no feathered friend required. Nope, it’s not one of those coconut-and-carrot-puree concoctions that molecular gastronomists are so fond of. This sulfury golden goo is every bit as eggy as anything laid by a hen. Since February, the Vegg has been selling at health food stores and at TheVegg.com. More than 7,650 powdered packets have sold worldwide, ready to whip up into no-ovo French toast, frittatas, and hollandaise sauce.
The improbable globule was conceived after the 58-year-old went vegan to protest factory farming. He missed the salty richness of fried eggs. “I thought, how hard can it really be to create a vegan egg?” Shepheard says. He blended nutritional yeast and Kala Namak (black salt) to create something that tasted remarkably like yolk. The red-orange glow was achieved with beta carotene. For additional substance he used sodium alginate, a seaweed extract and thickener. Mix the powder with water and behold: the incredible, edible Vegg. Thanks to the chemical properties of alginate, you can “spherify” the Vegg by stiffening its outer surface a bit in a simple calcium chloride solution. For his next trick, Shepheard’s working on a whole Vegg with a fryable white. It could be the answer to vegans’ secret cravings, if they aren’t too chicken to try it.
Why do you still have signatures turned on?
I've been cutting back on my meat eating lately, but I don't think I'm doing a good enough job replacing the lost protein. I'm not trying to go vegetarian, but I would like to have maybe 3 or 4 meatless days each week.
I've only recently discovered the joy of a good runny egg yolk. It's the sauce to my breakfast hash. Good stuff.Originally Posted by Ben
Not vegan or vegetarian, but I was doing the Paleo diet for a couple months. I liked it (I definitely had more energy), but I feel there are a lot of holes in it. Specifically, it's tough to get calcium, and it's hard to get the carbs necessary post-workout. Plus I love peanut butter, soy milk, a Greek yogurt too much.
For general "clean" eating, I've been eating a lot of sprouted bread (like this: http://www.foodforlife.com/product-c...lourless-bread) with pure honey for after a workout, and I've also been drinking wheatgrass to start my day: http://amazinggrass.com/product/42/O...-servings.html
Sad to say, I got the idea for the wheatgrass after seeing Christian Bale chug it (or something like it) in Batman Begins.
