I Don't know either to be shocked or amazed I loved your posts about cooking. I cook alot in my job normally as a food service specialist for the marines and all what you posted I tried teaching my young Privates and PFCs.

Guidelines for Salt and such forth though.
For a active training Environment in the sun the human body needs a increased electrolyte and sodium intake with at least 6 quarts of water a day at a 80*F.
The definition of a active training Environment is 30-40 minutes of exercise in a non strenuous fashion for prolonged periods of time.

For a Extremely active training Environment in the sun the human body needs to be hydrated at least 2-3 days in advance minimum with water not gatorade; With balanced meals gatorade can be a supplementary enhancement for the human during training due to the water and sodium loss.

I am not going to copy the navy marine corps order on this but its common sense if your active treat your body right.  :)
I see no reason to try and impress you, But I will impress myself.

Pain may be weakness leaving the body but it sure hurts.

Thank you so much, Muse_of_Fire...I have been pondering questions that you answered for weeks now.

Also, a fun fact for people who are deciding to read the comments:  Muse mentioned to buy Butter (NOT MARGARINE), and there is good reason for this...  Margarine's chemical make-up is about 97% similar to that of plastic.

How To Shop, Cook, and Eat for Health on Limited Time, a Limited Budget, and Limited Cooking Experience

-If you eat boiled eggs for snacks or as part of salads, buy two dozen eggs, and boil one dozen of them on your "prep day" to have on hand for the rest of the week. Be sure to mark them somehow to avoid confusion with your unboiled dozen!


Just thought I'd mention a trick I learned about telling the difference between hard boiled and unboiled.  If you're unsure just place it on a flat surface and spin it; if it spins fast it's hard boiled.  However, if it spins slowly, and kind of wobbles as it spins, it's unboiled.  I'm serious, it's worked every time for me when I needed to know.  No one wants to crack open an unboiled egg unprepared for it. lol.

Of course, if you keep them separate like muse has said, then you wont be unsure, but in the event that you are, now you know how to test them out. :)
All the days I fight the urge to eat bad, fattening food will be for nothing, a sacrifice in vain, if I give in the urge today.  Fight the urge, be free.

Avoid too much salt (and other spices). Think about it. How much salt did humans eat long time ago? Very little. Most people are eating too much salt.



Its not that they are eating too much salt, its that they are eating the wrong kind of salt.
The processing of table salt is one of the things which makes it unhealthy. Ive only been eating Himalayan salt for the past year and a half.
I buy it for around 10 dollars a lb at a local health food store. A couple lbs is enough for a long time.

Read this for an explanation.

Something which is often left out in these types of conversations is not how to eat, but what NOT to eat. And also there should be more emphasis on eating Organically...

I'd like to mention that sodium chloride is sodium chloride...

Salt is salt. There is no wrong kind of salt.
