Hey, silly puffin, you think the more the better. Don't try to talk. You've already said a mouthful. Call me, I'll teach you how to dine in style.
Delicious macaroons from Los Angeles. Sturdy and resilient to heat, too. The shipping "cold" packs were very, very hot upon arrival. So were the macaroons.😎
The "new" fifth taste, called umami, goes back centuries and was widely used by Japanese cooks.
The taste is created by glutamate, which is a building bloc of proteins and is present almost everywhere in the body.
Glutamate can also function as a neurotransmitter, which does its neurotransmitter thing and doesn't contribute to the umami taste in any way.
Then, there are nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA and RNA. These guys do not create the umami sensation, but they can enhance it for our fun and gustatory pleasure.
I have to hand it to Lee Kang-bin, he elevated coffee art to the next level. Forget about the lame hearts and leaves, behold the miniature recreations of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night and Munch’s Scream.
FYI - According to Mayo Clinic, “up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That's roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee.”
I recently posted a pic with fried tarantulas on Instagram, and a lively conversation ensued:
#dr_nedvetsky One way to #eatmindfully and keep focus on food is to eat an exotic and dangerous mouthful of complex #tastes and #flavors. Try a fried tarantula. I guarantee the spider will demand your undivided attention.
dhcgraphics You've crossed a line with this one. I don't care how good for me they may be. 😝
tdr_nedvetskyOh, come on now @dhcgraphics - it's just three little Mygalomorphae, 🤣🤣🤣they're crunchy!
dr_nedvetsky(@piscesrising11 - "Say! I like green eggs and ham! And I would eat them in a boat... and I would eat them with a goat... and I will eat them in the rain. And in the dark. And on a train. And in a car. And in a tree. They are so good, so good, you see! So I will eat them in a box. And I will eat them with a fox. And I will eat them in a house. And I will eat them with a mouse. And I will eat them here and there. Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!
I do so like green eggs and ham! Thank you! Thank you...!"
dr_nedvetsky@chocolateandmoredelights 🍫covered 🕷 Aragogs! 😋finger licking good!
tpiscesrising11@dr_nedvetsky 👏👏👏 .. um I would not eat them here..i would not eat them anywhere. No dear!
legit.health.hacks I'm both horrified and intrigued.
My verdict - we, in the Western world, are not ready to eat insects, even the charming and cuddly tarantulas.
