Eating well, eating healthily and eating inexpensively are my goals as MGTOW. As MGTOW we have to be smarter and more self-aware than the putative pair-bonders not only in how we manage our sexuality and relationships, but also in how we both manage and enjoy our physical existence.
I enjoy eating potatoes a great deal but eating a great deal of potatoes is not a good idea – as far as they hit your body, eating one is like eating a brick of sugar: potatoes are mostly starch that the body quickly breaks down into – yes – sugar in the bloodstream. Nutritionists measure this effect with something called the glycemic index and on that scale of 0 to 100, a baked potato rates an astounding 111 – 11% HIGHER than eating a brick of sugar (100).
So if you are watching carbohydrates in your diet, dropping or restricting potatoes and other starchy foods like rice and pasta is the only correct way to go MGTOW. For me, anyway.
A great vegetable to use in place of potatoes, rice and pasta is cauliflower.
To use it as rice, I grate it into rice-sized grains and toss it directly into stir fry dishes.
To use it like mashed potatoes, just boil for 10-12 minutes, drain well and mash like you would potatoes. I boil mine with a couple of cloves of garlic, then mash with butter, heavy cream, sour cream and/or cream cheese to get a mashed-potato-like result. Season with salt & pepper and voilà!
In college, our favorite late-night cram-time meal was Kraft(tm) macaroni & cheese mixed with browned hamburger. Not exactly great cuisine, but it was a fast, tasty and filling meal before my computer nerd friends and I slogged back to the books to memorize reams of feminist “academic” crap. I still remember being so frustrated by getting repeated grades of “B” from my feminist English professor that I stole an “A” paper written by a female friend. Her writing was so bad that I had my first red-pill moment: the only problem with my writing was my penis.
Nowadays, when I’m in the nostalgic mood for mac & cheese I fall back on my favorite way to prepare cauliflower: as a pseudo pasta product. The result is something the delightful, husky-voiced Rachel Ray on 30-minute meals would call a “stoup” – sort of stew and sort of soup.
“Look at the flowers! Stoup”
- Fill a large saucepan with water, add a bit of salt and bring to a rapid boil.
- Prepare 1/2 a head of cauliflower by slicing it thinly. Some of it will fall into crumbs but that is okay; gather up all the crumbs as well as the slices.
- Add the sliced cauliflower and one smashed clove of garlic to boiling water and return to a boil for 7 minutes; 6 minutes if you want a firmer result, 8 minutes for complete disintegration of the result.
- Drain in a colander while you prepare the sauce in the same saucepan.
- Under very low heat, add 1/8 cup (30 ml) heavy cream (more or less) to the pan. Half-n-half or milk will also work but these contain a bit of sugar that cream does not.
- Add about 3/4 cup (200 gm) of cubed Velveeta pasteurized prepared cheese product and stir to melt. I season the melting cheese with Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning blend, and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the cauliflower until evenly coated and serve immediately.
You can augment this basic recipe with a variety of meats and vegetables. For example:
- Add 1/2 cup (120 g) of cubed or sliced ham to the cauliflower during boiling.
- Substitute broccoli or even broccoflower for some or even all the cauliflower for variety or a change of pace.
- Mix in one link of crumbled, browned hot Italian Sausage before serving.
- Add chopped fresh jalapeño or red bell peppers during boiling.
- Mix in pickled jalapeño peppers before serving.
- Bacon, hamburger, chicken, pork, shrimp – go wild if adventure suits you.
Whatever you do, make it so spicy that any delicate, easily triggered feminists in the vicinity flee in terror from both the intense, rapey flavor and the reality that you don’t need them for anything any longer.
