Sameplate For Finding A Love

As many of you know I am a single guy. Being such a great catch you may find this absurd. Well I am very picky and have some eccentricities. A big one being that I’m paleo. I feel very strongly about my diet. I completely believe that humans are not supposed to eat grains. So going on a date and seeing my date devour toxic garbage for food is a turn off.

Most dating sites glance over diets and food. It may mention food in passing. On Sameplate it’s all about food. Sameplate is a dating site for foodies, cooks and dieters.

Ok Let’s try this again. I love it when wordpress eat a completed post. It is getting cold outside. Even here in Tennessee it’s down to 21° already. With the cold comes the crud. With a combination of the weather and building I feel like crap. Sore throat, runny nose and achy. When I get like this there my go to solution is soup. It’s easy to make and warms you. It drives back the funk. Especially when made from homemade bouillon cubes.

Like I talked about recently I don’t like store bought bouillon cubes. They have all kinds of junk in them I don’t like. I have looked all over for better ones and have not found any. The solution is homemade bouillon cubes. Not the little rocks you get in the store but real ones. They are easy and good for you too.

A while back the good folks at Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of coconut oil for review. I have used it a while now. I’m finally ready to do the review. I’ll also go over some reasons why coconut oil is a must have prep.

Fat’s are an often overlooked prep. Many store their beans, rice and wheat. All stores of carbohydrate. Easily storable. Protein has options too. Mountain house meat and beef jerky are options. For fats people usually grab some things of vegetable oil. They might get olive oil on the higher end. Neither are the best option.

Just storing calorie is not enough. You could store nothing but snickers and twinkies. Junk food is cheap and last a long time. Eating it though you will not last a long time. We need to make smarter choices in our food storage. Coconut oil is one easy way to do that.
