  2. Despite a lower economic status, lower education, less access to healthcare, and higher smoking rates, hispanics in the US live longer. Well, until they acclimate to the Standard American Diet, then death starts to catch up. What is it? Likely food, such as beans, corn, rice, and peppers. The rate of bean consumption is vastly higher than whites, as well as other vegetables. Beans have been strongly associate with protection from heart disease and diabetes. https://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-hispanic-paradox-why-do-latinos-live-longer/ Do legumes—beans, chickpeas, split peas, and lentils—work only to prevent disease, or can they help treat and reverse it as well? https://nutritionfacts.org/2022/05/19/randomized-controlled-trials-of-beans/?utm_source=NutritionFacts.org&utm_campaign=dcde95f609-RSS_BLOG_DAILY&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_40f9e497d1-dcde95f609-28710906&mc_cid=dcde95f609&mc_eid=6bf37ade4d Randomized controlled interventional trials have found that dietary bean intake does significantly reduce bad LDL cholesterol levels. In fact, we’ve known that for more than half a century, dating back to 1962. You can see what happens at 2:11 in my video when you measure cholesterol levels at baseline, add beans to the diet, and then remove beans from the diet. The cholesterol content in blood serum goes down and back up. Beans also “have a low glycemic index and saturated fat content, and are high in fiber, potassium, and plant protein, each of which independently confers BP- [blood pressure-] lowering effects. Whether there is sufficient evidence to emphasize dietary pulses [beans] alone to lower BP, however, is unclear.” Therefore, what we need is a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled feeding trials, and we got just that. What did the researchers find? Beans do indeed lower blood pressure no matter where you start out. And beans are easy to add into a daily diet. There are so many options.
  3. Being that it's a mechanical adjustment and that the MAP signal can't fuck with cylinders individually I don't see a reason to unplug it. I don't know why it says to do it on other bikes, maybe it's just in the way and needs to be moved. Oh...I guess it could make the synch process more difficult since every time you make a change it'll add a change. Especially if the MAP sensor is connected to only one throttle body and it's not whichever one is un-adjustable since every time you tweak that one it could make a pretty big change across the board.
  4. It's outside the environment. Last use was with the Jeep, now..... Make me a fair trade or something or whatever.
  5. Once you get clean, even a little junk feels obviously terrible. Last week Moriah decided to eat some local sodium/grease bomb food and I said fuck it and joined her. Ugh, bloated, tired, and my joints hurt the next day. This all feels "normal" when you eat the usual shit every day. Last night's "dessert" was some frozen berry/tropical mix in the bender with coconut-based milk substitute, small bit of honey, pile of inulin (which is not only a sweet buffer it's just pure fiber).
  6. There's no mention of unplugging a map sensor like my other Honda's. Do you just skip this step? I already synced without, should I re-do it?
  7. As the cardiologist says, "If it tastes good, spit it out."
  8. Last week
  9. I haven’t had red meat since my Heart Attack (steak, burgers, hot dogs) and I’ve made the decision to completely cut out desserts, sugar, sweets, and any type of sugary food this past Saturday. I had a bowl of ice cream Friday night and it just instantly makes me feel like crap. For me - it’s all or nothing - so I’m choosing nothing.
  10. I remember seeing those and wondering if you were putting up more cameras, now it makes more sense. And I keep forgetting, if you decide to dump the electric cooler I might want it. I wonder what those finely aged beers taste like, they look pretty impressive...you get first sip 🙂
  11. Free, if you can use them. Rain proof cover, wall/ceiling mount with swivel. I might still have a camera or two also. Most have failed.
  12. At least that bike is set up to handle the load.

  14. Two big macs a day and still going strong
  15. I've done the tamales from normal medium ground masa, from fine ground corn flour, and with Hominy that I coarse ground in the food processor. All different and equally good. In Cuba, we don't make "tamales," which are objects, we make "tamal" which is a porridge type thing. Same ingredients, just stewed instead of steamed, and no corn husks. Really, it's just Hispanic Polenta (which is also awesome and easy to make as a whole food). Something from this list is going into the weekend plans.
  16. I love them from masa... but you make them from fresh dried corn.... HOT DAMN. And it's fun...
  17. Huh, I should give that a whirl. The same masa can make tamales, and there are several substitutes for the parts that make them garbage, like the oil and salt. And roasted hatch chiles covered in corn...now I'm hungry.
  18. My wife taught me how to make fresh corn tortillas.... nothing better.
  19. Indeed. And I'm not really understanding how it tastes "better" since beans and some light spices is so damn good anyway. I have to think that it's some sort of addiction thing that they have come up with. Some. There is a very monstrous variety between brands. Some have a mile long ingredient list full of crap, and some say: INGREDIENTS: Corn The flour ones are never going to be real food, it's right in the name, "flour." But you could do worse. Santa Fe has a mostly whole food tortilla that's very good, and still soft and flexible unlike most "healthy" versions. And of course, a pure corn tortilla is whole real food.
  20. What's amazing is how one can screw up a simple bean burrito and make it unhealthy. I was floored to see how bad tortillas are for nutrition.
  21. This is not 100% perfect, this is a shitload better than most fast food. https://www.tacobell.com/food/specialties/power-menu-bowl-veggie Panera can be pretty good too, and chipotle. The sofritas are damn tasty and pretty damn good nutritionally. You just have to look past the obvious.
  22. If TB had a relatively healthy menu I'd eat there often. That goes for most fast food places. I'm down for healthy FAST FOOD. Not much out there.
  23. I know...WHAT??? I was surprised to find that they are making a specific effort to cut down sodium and other garbage, and to provide plant based and mostly whole food options. There are a couple. Still high in sodium, but not insane for occasional consumption if you need something fast. The black bean and rice bowl is a fairly decent option. But, this is mostly about making your own. Sure, why would you choose to make Taco Bell? Well sometimes it's just interesting, like gas station nacho cheez. Oddly, though Moriah hates anything spicy or peppery, she likes the TB meat. BUT...she's allergic to beef. So I've been making my own with no sodium added, and Beyond Burger. A little plant based "cheese" plus coconut-based crema and it's fun dumb little meal that is mostly real food. This pairs well with my all-food refried beans that use no lard or salt, but still have a creamy and greasy feel. I'll post that one later. 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon dried onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano, crushed well 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (just for zing not heat) 1/2 teaspoon white sugar 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules...most brands are just full of salt. If you use unsalted, then add 1/2 tsp of potassium chloride.
  24. Was that what you were looking for?
