I was recently in an accident and cannot exercise; particularly, I cannot put weight on my feet or lay my feet on the ground. Consequently, I have to maintain my weight purely through diet. I typically aim for around 1300 calories/day.

So far I have:

  • breakfast: fried egg/egg white on toast with a glass of water (about 200 cals)
  • lunch: chicken breast, small piece of bread, with a large spinach salad (about 300 cals)
  • afternoon snack ?
  • dinner ?

Thank you.

About flavoring coffee (self.healthyfood)
submitted 6 months ago by AkaBobHoward to c/healthyfood

I am very much a black coffee person, that said, once in a while I wouldn't mind flavor of some sort in my coffee, I see these people with there French Vanilla, or cinnamon coffee creamer and I will admit I get a bit jealous.

I am working on getting in shape, other than round, and on a budget, so I have been toying with the idea of trying a protein powder or something similar as creamer.

I was hoping I could get some alternative ideas for coffee creamer here. I am looking for low calorie, and ideally something with protein. Does anyone have an idea?

Steviol glycosides (SGs) in Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni) leaves are important due to their high sweetness and low calorific value. The yield of SGs is dependent on fertilization regimes, but the relationship between nitrogen (N) administration and SGs synthesis is still unclear. In this study, we investigate the effects of N rates on SGs production through hydroponic and plot experiments. The SGs yield was not significantly changed by N fertilization, but leaf SGs concentrations were significantly reduced due to the "dilution effect". Additionally, N addition decreased leaf carbon (C)/N ratio and soluble sugar concentration, accompanied with the inhibited phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and L-phenylalanine ammonia_lyase activities. A significant positive correlation between leaf SGs concentrations, C/N ratio and soluble sugar concentration was observed. Overall, we suggest that N-driven Stevia growth negatively affects SGs concentrations. The leaf C/N ratio and soluble sugar changes indicated the occurrence of metabolic reprogramming. #Stevia #kombucha #ikombucha_ro #ikombucha https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31195254/

Did you know that all sea salt have toxic microplastics in it? It's one of the sad truths in our polluted world. It's not much but you will be eating salt in almost every meal for the rest of your life so you might as well care about it.

A healthier alternative to sea salt is mined salt.

With that in mind, how did Apeel, a bizarre World Economic Forum (WEF) and Bill Gates-funded food coating that makes spoiling fruits and vegetables appear fresh, become approved for use on USDA Organic produce under the name Organipeel?

According to the Organic Consumers Association (OGA), the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) gave Apeel’s Organipeel the green light, “presumably based on citric acid being the active ingredient.” OGA explains that citric acid is a non-organic ingredient allowed in organic foods as long as it isn’t synthetic.

Yet, OGA notes that citric acid is only 0.66 percent of the Organipeel formulation. So, what makes up the other 99.44 percent of Organipeel?
