meat, recommended

i stopped eating meat entirely for a bit, recently. this is
not something i ever really saw myself doing.

first off: i'm eating fried chicken right now. it made me
feel like shit. my body really missed the protein. exercise
a lot

but progression was like

a) gradually started to eat less and less [meat] over the
years. more peanuts, ravioli. you know.

b) some mild health/digestive issues (pretty boring and not
worth discussing) and cut more out

c) prices just making me go ppf. then, ppPPF!

d) last few days: oh, i'll have some oatmeal. some
ravililoilooi. some trail mix. i'll make fondue. a bean

e) hell i have a streak going and i don't really have much
meat-food anyways

f) i feel like poop i need chicken -stat-

i'm still going to be rather minimal on meat.... but tofu, i
have tofu in my fridge. and it doesn't freaking cut it. so
lethargic. chicken. help

If you have extra meat in your fridge or freezer send it to
me I’ll eat it. As for tofu, there’s a few of them
I’ve tried and kinda liked but I’m not sure I could go
vegetarian. I mean have you ever had a $11.99 steak at
Applebee’s?? Gdam, yummy!

don't listen to me tho I'm a bit fat

a good bit of sugar

for me the problem is more the carbs/sugars etc.

I'll get a couple of filet mignons for 23 bucks and cook
them up but also eat like 4 pieces of garlic bread or
something. I've cut out making the sides and now just roll
with a salad with homemade ranch (store bought ranch sucks
my dick)

i was tempted to fetch a chicken from the local fryer/baker.
shop has been there for over 35 years and i have fond
memories about it. just couldnt do it thinking about how
they´re bred industrial style, lots of being sick and in
featherless and how i would much rather like to eat it
knowing it came from a real farm, which is weird in a way,
cause i dont care much about their heads being chopped off.
i dont like chickens that much although i hear they are
quite cuddly.

yesterday i passed three roadkill in less than 2 hours and
my mind played me the whole scenario of a creatures bones
and everything being squashed, twitching in pain. and their
lives being ended. really horrible. somehow it doesnt apply
to chickens in the same way, when i nibble on their bones.

anyway i yearn for chicken too and i will still have it at
times. preferrably from farm though. industry is torture,
but i could get away with murder.

never could say i noticed anything different about eating or
not eating meat regularly apart from the poop, btw.
scientists have a very clear opinion about it today:
unnecessary and unhealthy.
gotta have some proper food though. stopping to eat meat and
having toast instead is obviously not working. gotta have
some full grain bread for example. nuts, (as you said epic)
beans etc. guess we all know that by now.

To each their own, it’s prol healthier and we know it’s
better for the planet but give me a 16oz steak (that’s
pretty small) and I will destroy it! Sounds like
Applebee’s for dinner!!

i realized i hadn't eaten meat for a few days, a no-meat
streak, i tried to keep going, it made me feel like poo, i
ordered fried chicken. vegans are of two categories a)
malnourished b) sedentary

but reasonable things said in this thread. grilled chicken
breast, absolutely. i think you can probably compensate with
planned, tactical eating, but... who has the time

so i guess i'm neither. i cut down on meat, tried giving it
up, decided cutting down worked, giving it up didn't. both
sides hate me. i'm a rebel. don't read the directions just
throw it in the microwave three minutes on high ok

khkn just so xpnsv now. the purdue nuggets, used to be like
$2 or $3 a pack. i stopped buying them once they crested $4.
i was at the store and now they're like $5.60 or some shit.
lol good luck

chicken breast, yeah, similar problems. so i bought a tub of
nuggets for $6. get a burger via takeout. planet is
complicated now

my nugget rage (not really, i just like the sound of that)

$2.50 is kind of what i remember, then over $3, around $4
i'm only buying one pack instead of two or three and i open
one (1) pack i bought at that price, and... the fuck,
they're... smaller?

...and, no, the net weight is the same. so what... oh. by
making them smaller, they can use more breading, less meat,
while putting "more" nuggets in the pack.

that moment was a river named the rubic^H^H^H get stuffed.
bought them once or twice on sale, since. i half wager
everyone else is all "you've crossed the river known as 'get
stuffed' and the only real consumers are rich people who
DGAF and moms with particular(ly) autistic children.

i feel kind of bad for the grocery store. they'll set there
are $5-6 until they've almost expired, then they'll go on
stale for almost $5, then finally they're really on the edge
and fly off the shelves in a day for $3.50, at a loss to the
store. that i don't feel warm and fuzzy about the store, i
merely note they've done nothing to deserve this shit.

like '%due nuggets%';

on sale for $2.50 a pack. i got four and immediately threw
them all in the freezer. seconds later, i remembered: i have
a thread for this on zilty

so, following up

...and if you want to, you know... understand

here is a post i wrote feb 24th as the finale to one of my
trademark waves of post. no one replied to it, but it stuck
out in my mind because i was rather satisfied with how it
came out -- and this is the only reason i ran a database
search; found the thread to reply to myself again -- oh,
yes, i have a thing for that. i should report back

it's quaint enough in isolation, but scale that up into...
vast amounts of what i've written; conversations i've had 20
years ago... that everything triggers... some shit i
remember... and there's only more of it in there as time
goes on

the tradeoff, i suppose: that i'll be working on a track,
and out of nowhere, my brain says, "you should sample this
specific bit from this particular episode of The Wire" and i
haven't watched the show in four years and here you go, the
perfect sample. and it was; my brain is rarely wrong when
it's sure. and it tells me how sure it is

then, daily basis, i'm doing basic human shit like putting
stuff in the fridge and OH YEAH that reminds me, and at
least i had the presence of mind to finish putting the rest
of the shit in the fridge before writing all this.

have a nice day.

is $4.50 for a bag of stop and shop brand onion rings
insane? i feel like it might be, but i don't really buy them
in general.

the nuggets i have, like -- $2.50, that's the core neuronal
crossover that pulled it out of the muck, but, yes, it was
$4.59 regular there, the smaller store i cited earlier, i
said $5-6 and it was like ~$5.69

but, onion rings... store brand or not... i have no data

i don't try to remember this stuff. it accumulates like gunk
in an air filter. evaluating what gets stuck in there is
more interesting.

i think a very standard way to fail the shit out of
mindfulness is to build it up into some Incredibly Serious
Thing that Requires Discipline and you have to follow
Complicated Procedures because It Matters and otherwise It
Won't Work and that last part, you've just told yourself
this has to be some masochistic shit or it won't work, so
then, obviously, it only works if you're a mindless lamb and
flagellate yourself

one day, long ago, i'm in a bit of a puckish mood; i decide
to just give in to the absurdity. my brain is serving up the
most random shit. i've spent so much time being frustrated
with it that i'm kind of over being frustrated. then i begin
judging the offerings like some prim fuddy-duddy judging
pigs at a towne faire, with dashes of a game show. tell him
what he's won

in retrospect, the key mechanic was that i began to actively
quantify what came back -- "how sure" was an eventual
byproduct of me being like a fancy cat with a monocle
examining bits of colorful yarn and fancy buttons, to judge
the quality. it was incredibly silly, but the machine back
there listened, and i started to get yarn of better color
and buttons that were far more fancy.

but no the closest most have to this is "mindfulness" and
"pay very close attention to what goes on inside you" and
this is supposed to bootstrap... what?

you're much better off having the self-important man who
judges pigs at the faire evaluate these things. or the cat
with the monocle. or simon cowell and the other two twits

but eventually, some wiring for stuff like "how old does
this memory feel like it is" and "how sure am i that i have
this right"
