Anonymous asked: hah, did you get the chickpea salad from d hall?
No, I bought it at Four Seasons but Dhall did have a similar version out the other day.
I’ve been trying to eat large amounts of fruit for breakfast since one, I refuse to get the cold by which everyone on campus is infected and two, I’m intrigued by the idea of raw veganism but not yet committed enough to go all out. You can eat fruit forever and most likely not gain weight as long as you’re eating healthy foods for the rest of the day (and not Pasta Action Station). A common misconception is that fruit does not have any calories or substance. This is wrong! Fruit does contain calories- more than you think. You can eat meals worth of calories and have MORE energy than you would eating meals worth of crappy food. Most fruits have a high water content, are packed with vitamin C and provide negligible amounts of saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol. So the question is: Why are you not eating more fruit? Over winter break, I ate approximately a 70% fruit and vegetable based diet and saw the return of my abs, and that widely unwanted space between my gluts and hamstrings significantly toned up. I ate more calories than I normally do, but since my calories were coming from nonfat foods, I did not gain any weight. In fact, I witnessed the opposite. You CAN get 3-4 hours worth of energy from a 100% fruit meal, but you must eat enough to fill you up and eat the right kinds that are carb-heavy like bananas. Above is a typical breakfast of mine: 2 pears, 3 bananas, and a huge mason jar of cut up melon and pineapple. This is around a 600-700 calorie breakfast full of hydration and packed with vitamin C.
My brother sent me this photo this morning. Hearty stews and soups are great to make in the winter. It looks like he simmered large chunks of carrots, tomatoes, and kale in a pot of water and lentils. Looks tasty! Thanks Adrian.
Edit: Adrian simmered everything in vegetable broth. Oberlin kids clearly don’t mess around with water, psh.
