grass fed organic

What if I told you that “local” “grass-fed” “open range” and “organic” meats and eggs still come from animals that were literally born to be murdered?

Homegrown, grass-fed, organic Coach Bittle headcanons

(This got really long and fluffy. Sorry.)

Coach looks like a scary dude, but he’s actually a big softie. He has a really intimidating resting bitch face, and a more intimidating murder face, but he would rather eat shit than say shit.

Coach is hella passive aggressive. If you mess with him he’ll be all like, “Wah, I was always taught to turn the other cheek. Hate the sin, love the sinner.” But then he’ll blind copy your boss and forward your emails if he feels like you’re being rude. Or he’ll hand out invitations to a cookout to everyone except you.

And it’s really interesting because Suzanne Bittle is the opposite. She is small and very sweet, but if you mess with her she ascends through passive aggressive and straight into aggressive-aggressive. Like, in high school Bitty had a lot of trouble with this one teacher. Not the subject material, but the teacher. Bitty would ask for help or clarification and the teacher would basically do the academic equivalent of “No, fuck off and die.” And then this teacher would “lose” Bitty’s assignments periodically, and he would grade Bitty’s tests way harder than anyone else’s.

OK so Breakfast looks small but it’s very filling. Eating ½ cup of almonds in the morning is no easy task. I usually eat macadamia nuts, but almonds are way cheaper and easier to buy in bulk. They can be raw or dry roasted, salted or not salted, it doesn’t make too much of a difference.

Eggs are always cheap - and filling.

I included a couple of options for lunch depending on what’s on sale. Be smart with the lunch meat choice. When in doubt, always chose smoked… honey has sugar. You can also go for more quality deli lunch meat depending on budget. Tuna is the same - get what you can, or opt for higher quality.

For dinner there are a lot of choices depending on what is on sale. As far as the butter is concerned, I know many tell you to only go for the Organic/Grass Fed/Kerry Gold stuff, but you could also get organic store brand butter, or… you know, just BUTTER! The same can be said about salad dressings - sometimes the only thing I have in the house is the kids’ basic Hidden Valley Ranch. 2tbsp of dressing is not going to kill you… just make sure you’re reading labels, checking carbs, and not buying anything that says “lite” or “fat free” and you’ll be fine.

is maria too fancy to take part in dropkicking you think. like maybe in life but in the nightmare shes pretty willing to make a mess. she might bloodfire dropkick you. watch out gherman

While Maria is indeed very fancy, she recognises a good move when she sees one. That’s why the doll was built specifically to be unable to replicate it, but will occasionally still try to fucking obliterate Gherman with a well aimed drop, as if acting on some subconscious urge.

Cabbage Soup! I looked back in my archives and kinda can’t believe I haven’t made this one before, because it was a favorite of mine growing up.

The change of weather to autumn (even in sunny Southern California) always puts me in the mind frame of being a kid, anticipating the first batches of my grandmother’s soup. I’ve written about it before, she did all the cooking in our house, and she elevated Jewish peasant food to a high art. Soup was one of her specialties (she made about 5 or 6 different kinds), and people on the block would ask for jars of it when word got out that a batch was brewing. My favorites were mushroom barley, and matzoh ball, but I loved her cabbage soup too. She made two kinds, white, which had cream in it and no meat, which I was not a fan of, and red, which had a tomato base and beef, which I absolutely loved! For whatever reason the other day, I started craving the red stuff, so I bought a large head of savoy cabbage (but any cabbage will do), and made a crockpot full.

Normally my grandmother used flanken to make this, a cheap cut of steak, similar to short rib, but I had some grass-fed stew meat in the freezer, so I just used that. First I browned the meat, then threw it into the slow cooker with the cut up cabbage, carrots, onions, celery, strained tomatoes, and homemade chicken stock. Then I added the spices, and some lemon juice to give it that slightly sour flavor. Very similar to her sauce for stuffed cabbage, which I’ve made for you before.

Even with a paleo all-organic healthier version (and no added salt), this taste brings me right back to my childhood. It was also a favorite of my Uncle Bernie’s, and when he visited, my grandmother had it waiting for him the minute he walked through the door, so I’d sit and visit with him too, while devouring my own bowl. Not much talking between us because we were busy eating, but the moment was shared nonetheless.

Uncle Bernie is gone now, as is my grandmother, but the memory lives on through food.

large head of cabbage (chopped)
stew meat
strained tomatoes
stock (beef, bone, chicken, veggie, etc)
carrots
celery
onions
paprika (the key spice)

(EDIT: Last time I made this I skipped the lemon juice, and added diced turnips, and I liked it even better)

Low Carb Thai Coconut Curry

One of the nice thing about curry sauce is that you can do pretty much whatever you want with it. You can mix it with any kind of meat, most vegetables, and even things like tofu if you’re into that sort of thing. The following is a recipe I’ve put together for the sauce only; feel free to mix it together with diced meat and veggies for a more traditional Thai curry. I’ve also indicated what particular brands I used to help give you an idea of where you can get everything.

Isn’t it funny how on every popular vegan post there are at least half a dozen people in the notes yelling about how poor people can’t go vegan and how we’re being “elitist,” but when someone advocates for local, organic, grass fed, free range meat, suddenly no one wants to talk about accessibility anymore.
