Quick fact. Ready?
Unlike carbs and fat, there is no storage form of protein. Yet, this macronutrient is needed for almost all basic human functions. This is why we must each consume adequate amounts of protein each and everyday in order to prevent things like muscle catabolism, immunity suppression, and so many more important bodily processes.

Stir fried garlic beef

Long before I’d been to Elsweyr, I bumped into a Khajiiti trading caravan making their way through Skyrim. I asked if I could trade anything for a traditional Khajiit recipe, so we gathered around the campfire and my lesson began. Elsweyr cooking is very heavy on meat, and it just so happened that they had a few slabs of beef with them.

This simple and protein-filled dish is ready in less than 30 minutes, so it’s perfect for those of you running short on time but who want a good, healthy meal. It makes 4 portions, so you can serve a family or save them for yourself later! Also, don’t panic: Khajiit are not domestic cats, and are therefore immune to the toxicity of garlic and onions that their lesser cousins suffer from!

You will need:
450g steak, sliced into thin strips
1 large ginger root, peeled and sliced thinly
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 spring onions, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
½ onion, sliced
1 small capsicum, sliced
½ small broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
Vegetable oil
2 tbsp rice wine
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
Cracked black pepper, to taste
Coriander (optional)
Sesame seeds (optional)
Steamed rice (optional)

Method:

Place a wok on high heat and wait until it’s very hot, then add a splash of vegetable oil to coat the surface. Add the beef and toss until it is roughly medium-rare (medium pink) and set aside.

Add more oil to the wok if needed and stir fry the broccoli and capsicum until tender. Throw in the garlic, onion, shallots, sauces, and rice wine, then stir fry the vegetables thoroughly. If the sauce is too thick, add a tablespoon or two of water.

Put the beef back in the wok along with the spring onions. Pour in the sesame oil and toss until all ingredients are covered. Continue to stir fry until the beef is tender, but be careful not to let it go grey and overcooked. It should be ready before it is well done, but depending in your wok and stove, the cooking time will vary. The best way is to taste test for yourself.

Garnish with coriander and sesame seeds, and serve with steamed rice.

oh hey, here’s Jou being canonically a cheapskate who borrows money from his friends! which became like 42% of his character in DSOD but is just a minor little “Jou is poor, disorganised and relies on his friends for shit” nod occasionally in the show, to the point I’d kinda forgotten it was even a thing and the repeated cheapskate jokes in DSOD came, from my perspective, out of nowhere

anonymous asked:

what kind of stomach problems are common in autism? is it diagnosable disorders or more general issues like frequent indigestion?

There are a wide variety of gastrointestinal problems that are more common in autistic people than in the general public. These can include celiac’s, food allergies/intolerances, IBS/IBD, acid reflux, and others. However, there is a lack of (non-biased, actually scientific, good) research into this subject, and many autistic people who have GI problems don’t get the appropriate diagnosis for those issues because of bias in the medical field. There are far too many doctors who think that GI problems are just a part of autism and thus don’t do any further investigation into what might be causing these problems. 

To be clear, GI problems are NOT part of autism. There are just medical conditions that are more likely to occur in autistic people.

Believe it or not, fibre is a form of complex carbohydrate, however it provides next to no energy to us. Why? Because majority of its molecular bonds are indigestible to humans. However there are many other benefits that fibre provides that we wouldn’t be able to function properly without.
