^went to the store and bought a bunch of the "spicier" spices that you recommended yesterday (e.g. paprika, cumin, curry powder, etc.). i avoided things like sage, basil, parsley, etc. though, mainly because i have absolutely no idea how to use them.

Awesome! Cumin is my favorite spice. I learned the uses of spices when I started following recipes... it is also a good idea to taste them / chew fresh before you put them in your food so you can identify the flavor.

I used to at the loser food judges when they would identify different tastes within a dish... things used to either taste "good" or "bad" to me. But lately I've been able to identify the different flavors and tastes and that's when I realized I'm starting to become a "foodie"

Edit: Try that dry rub on your next steak, chicken etc. Let marinate for at least an hour or two in fridge (best to plan ahead) and then bake or BBQ.

If you BBQ/grill chicken breast often, google how to brine chicken breast. Once you taste a brined & bbq'd chicken breast, you will never go back.

is it possible to over-brine your chicken? like what would happen if i prepared a brine, and kept 2-3 chicken breasts in there, and didn't eat that last chicken breast until the third day?

It would probably be a bit rubbery and incredibly salty, wouldn't really recommend that (this is just for chicken breast, whole chicken would be fine for 30+ hours).

It takes only 25-30 minutes to brine a chicken breast and get the effect though, so usually I fire up my BBQ and put chicken breasts in the brine in refrigerator and by the time BBQ is heated up and I've prepped everything chicken is good to go.

What I usually do is brine 6-8 chicken breasts at a time, and then cook them all at once. That way they are still moist the next day even if you have to reheat in microwave etc.

2 cups whole milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 oz peanuts
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 banana
1 scoop whey

About 800-900 calories, breh. Double the ingredients for more calories.

yup. Most "healthy" recipes are not healthy. If they are they are a huge pain in the balls.

So really, rice is a no go?

Went to the store bought some natural peanut butter, some honey, nutella, and sweet potatoes. Starting to stock up on better ****. Just got my routine into full swing starting today with a 5 day split, so I'm trying to get my diet dialed in for better results.

For cheating, If you cheat with nutella it's barely cheating.

Easiest way to eat healthy is to not have any junk in the house, usually the wrist thing I have in my cabinets/fridge is peanut butter.
