My doctor tells me I have high LDL cholesterol. I suspect it's because I use too much oil in everything. What are some oil substitutes? I can fry stuff without oil, of course, but what should I do about using olive oil on salads, potatoes, and other stuff? Are there any good alternatives?
I have high cholesterol (inherited it genetically), which I take lipitor for, so it's not really all that high, but I generally try to eat a low-fat diet. I'm also mostly vegetarian (I eat fish) so that probably helps too.
Just do your best to get low-fat alternatives of things you usually eat, if you can. Stuff like low-fat cheese, no higher than 1% milk/yogurt, etc... I don't think using just a bit of oil for a stir fry is too bad, although you might have been talking about deep frying. For salads you could use balsamic vinaigrette instead of oil.
I should get a sourdough starter going so I can serve my vegan stew on bread trenchers. Was whole wheat bread the default in medieval times? Or had they already developed white flour production methods more efficient than Rome's linen sifting?

Hey ilu /ck/, looking for some advice or help in the right direction.
I'm taking care of my grandma and she's had a large loss of appetite. Been to doctors over it and none of her medication is the cause, she's really on the bare minimum. Her daily diet is oatmeal and some sweet bread or toast in the morning, maybe half one of those meals on wheels for lunch, and an ensure in the evening. Before (as much as 6 months ago) I was able to at least get her to eat a small portion of a homemade dinner and she'd eat almost the whole meals on wheels.

I thought that too but /fit/ focuses more on cutting and less on bulking. When they do talk of bulking it's hardly healthy bulking and all I can imagine getting from them is whey protein. Which isn't horrible since I do plan to use some of that.
Oh and yeah peanut butter. Def gotta get that.
My grocery list is basically
>frozen berries, mangos, fruit
>yogurt, high fat/cal kind since she certainly isn't dieting

I feel sorry for Europeans with their gay cheese that only has words and pictures of castles on them.
Can you keep opened cheese for over a month in the fridge? I can't stop my cheese from growing mold and it's a waste of money to throw away something I eat only a slice of every week.. At this point I'm going to have to buy kraft slices.
Say that you were given a mission to construct the perfect cheeseburger.
The mission also includes using traditional ingredients with your own technical twist. Buns, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, bacon, red onion, and sauce. Do you think there should be more or less on the burger?
You are given an ingredient list as follows: Homemade Hamburger Buns
Beef (your choice of cut)
Cheese (your choice of cheese, melted or broiled?)
Lettuce (What kind? What's your technique to bring it to the next level?)
Tomato (What kind and how do you take it further?)
I found this picture online, I was blown away that they sous vide the lettuce. I checked it out online but there's no information on sous vide produce.
I am sick of this fancy nacho trend, this is worse than Hitler
They are good but when I order nachos I want a giant pile of slop, not individual pieces arranged in an eye pleasing pattern
Why are there any failing restaurants at all? This guy can apparently fix any restaurant by giving people a basic lesson in how to cook/run a business over two days. It can't be that hard.
listen to kitchen confidential, and stop relying on bullshit reality TV to tell you how the real world works.
Okay i want to start going to butcher to get my meats, mostly just the really cheap cuts like tripe tongue and so on. What are some tips to get the good cheap stuff? Basically how do i talk to a butcher with out looking like an autistic pleb?
food noob, where to buy cheap bulk spices? I have a curry-based need to feed.
>that one guy that puts his wasabi into his soy sauce
>that one guy that eats sushi with ginger
>that one fag who only orders nigiri and sticks his nose at rolls
Nigga this ain't fucking Nobu, that frozen tuna on rice is six times the price of what everyone else is eating and ain't even the real shit you white trash idiot.
How have your tastebuds changed over the years /ck/?
Lately I've become obsessed with anything spicy, and as a kid I remember hating anything spicy. Same goes with a lot of other stuff.
This period of losing weight has made me man up with a lot of vegetables. Cabbage sprouts peppers onions and peas.
Also actually like neat whiskey now when 4 5 months ago I did not.
Fine with anything as long as there is not a lot of raw tomato in it. Fucking hate raw tomoto
What happen if I boil beer?
Do you use a fork or chopsticks? I heard that you're supposed to use chopsticks and slurp them making noise to achieve the authentic experience and don't know if it's a meme, but I've never managed to get it right. What do?
