meat and beans

anonymous asked:

Willow is ripped, Perseis wants to get ripped, Nina got ripped before asking out her crush. Is... is this your type of girl? I'm not judging, but this reoccurring theme feels like you're lowkey trying to say something.

I’m just throwing some meat into a sea of bean sprouts, and nah, HIGHKEY saying WOMEN ARE STRONG!


Also Perseis doesn’t want to get ripped, she just wants a belly that is less jelly, ya feel?

Soups! Kitchen Witch Masterpost

One of the easiest and most heartwarming recipes for a kitchen witch, soups! Their recipes are easily manipulated to suit your intention, plus they’re perfect for the upcoming winter!

Basic Ingredients:

- Carrots, Onions, Celery. These are the holy trinity. I also like to add garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, and others.

- vegetable/chicken broth and/or water.

- many recipes call for crushed tomatoes. I like diced, and can find them canned in any grocery store, but it’s up to you!

- (Optional) beans or lentils (if you buy dried lentils, cook them beforehand)

- (Optional) meat–sausage, beef, chicken. Cook before adding to the soup please!

Directions:

1. Cut up vegetables and sautee them in a big pot for about eight minutes. This is to soften them up and sweeten up the onions. Don’t add herbs yet!

2. If you bought canned beans, drain and rinse them. If you want thicker broth, you can crush up a can of beans into a paste and add them to the broth, or even throw them into a blender.

3. Set pot aside. Add tomatoes, beans, meat, broth. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add any herbs you wish.

Common Vegetables:

Carrots - sex (with parsley for best results), fertility

Cabbage - lunar food, protection, wealth, prosperity, luck

Onions - protection, purification, healing, exorcism, wealth

Celery - sex, peace, psychic powers, mental strength

Beans - wealth, sex, protection

Potato - protection, compassion

Mushrooms - psychic powers, strength

Common Herbs:

Thyme - love, psychic powers, purification

Basil - love, protection, money, exorcism

Rosemary - protection, consciousness, memory, healing, love

Parsley - protection, sex, love, wealth

Dill - wealth, love, consciousness, studying, luck

Bay - protection, psychic powers, healing, purification, strength

Garlic - protection, healing, strength, psychic powers, exorcism

Ginger - love, wealth, strength, success

Black Pepper - protection, purification, exorcism

Salt - purification, protection, healing

Most herbs are not put into the broth until the broth is simmering, to prevent burning. The exception to this rule is bay, which is put in at the beginning. BEWARE of pepper! The longer the pepper cooks in the soup, the spicier the soup will be!

IF YOU’RE ADDING MEAT:

- Do not cut your vegetables with the same knife you cut meat with.

- Cook meat beforehand, but remember that it’ll be cooking in the broth for a time afterwards, or be careful not to overcook.

- Most meat is diced into half-an-inch-squares.

Other Tips:

- Stir clockwise to create, counter-clockwise to take away.

- You can carve sigils into some vegetable slices.

- Cook with a crystal near your pot to boost a spell’s effectiveness.

- Fire and water are prominent elements here! Draw upon their power.

And that’s it!! Have a lovely winter full of great company and nourishing meals!

If you’re having a bad day...
  • Change your clothes. Even if you’re already wearing something comfortable, change into something else that’s still casual and comfy.
  • Eat your favorite food. A bowl of rice, ice cream, pasta, make a sandwich, anything that makes you happy.
  • Eat some fruit. A banana, apple, peach, pear, some berries, fruit is always a good option.
  • Eat some protein. Cheese, meat, eggs, rice and beans, ect. Something to give you energy.
  • Drink lots of water. Fill up a water bottle and keep it with you, but remember to actually drink it.
  • Find as many pillows and blankets as you can around the house and pile them on your bed. THE MESSIER, THE BETTER!
  • Bring your acquired snacks into your room. Even if you don’t make a habit of eating in your room, make an exception this time.
  • Bring a couple of your favorite stuffed animals to share your nest with.
  • If you have cats, invite them as well.
  • Watch an episode or two of your favorite show GUILT FREE. Nothing sad! Watch something that will make you smile and laugh a lot. And ENJOY IT. Give yourself this time to decompress without stressing over a million other things. I know it can be hard, but YOU CAN DO IT
  • Hang a sign outside your door, letting family members/roommates know that you are currently unavailable. Be polite, courteous, and take their needs into consideration if they need something from you, but it’s okay to have a little chunk of time all to yourself when you’re having a tough day. We’ve all been there.
  • Turn off your phone. Just for a little while so you can completely relax. Stay off social media too - you don’t need any drama right now.
  • Once you’ve finished your show and eaten a healthy amount of food, do something productive. Even if it’s just one or two little chores - sweep, do the dishes, tidy up your room, dust, reorganize the bookshelf, whatever. Do something that will make you feel like you’ve accomplished something. Even if it’s little, be proud of yourself for each task!
  • Listen to music while you’re working. iPod, record player, radio, etc. Make it something up beat with a nice and lively tempo.
  • Dance and sing. I don’t care if you dance like a fish out of water and sing like a dog whose tail was stepped on, you are a beautiful contribution to this world so don’t be afraid to shine!
  • Alternate in doing tasks throughout the day with doing things you enjoy. Paperwork and then a walk (fresh air always helps!), mop the floors than read that book you’ve been wanting to explore.
  • Talk to a friend if you need to. If you don’t think you have anyone to talk to, let me be the first to tell you, YOU DO! There are thousands of kindhearted people on here who would love to get to know you and want to help you and hear about your day if you are feeling under the weather.
  • Remember that this is today. Every tomorrow is another chance. Everyone has rough days, and sometimes we get a whole long string of them, but life is so much more than just the bad days. Go to bed knowing that tomorrow is a new start.

Black Bean

You give Noctis a veggie burger for dinner.


He won’t notice.

To avoid rousing suspicion, you don’t skimp on anything. You still put an egg, some onion, lettuce, and tomato. While he picks off the undesirables, you pretend to be uninterested and eat some fries. You even give him what you hope is a stern look when he scrapes them onto your plate.

He hasn’t noticed yet. He’s still blissfully ignorant.

Noctis lifts the burger and takes a bite. He stares blankly ahead for a long time before opening his mouth and letting the food tumble back onto his plate. When he looks at you, the hurt look on his face makes your lips twitch.

The jig is up.

“What kind of meat is this?”

“I didn’t use meat. I used a black bean recipe I found online.”

Silence. He lowers his head and pushes his plate away.

“I can’t believe you would betray me like this.”

“Stop being so dramatic.”

YOOO SO HERE'S A FLAVOUR TIP

THIS TUBE WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE

I come from a Hungarian family, and we put this stuff (paprika paste) in everything. Soups, salad dressings, meatloaf, beans, meat seasoning/rub type things, and sandwiches.

I never really cared about it, but since becoming a vegetarian, I’ve realized its P O T E N T I A L

IT MAKES EVERYTHING TASTE GREAT. YOU ONLY NEED ONE PEA-SIZED SQUIRT AND EVERYTHING TASTES DELICIOUS. I MISSED SANDWICHES AFTER GIVING UP MEAT BUT NO! I EAT SANDWICHES WITH THIS STUFF, RADISHES, TOMATOES, LETTUCE, AND CARROTS AND IT’S BETTER THAN MEAT SANDWICHES! SO GOOD! I’VE EATEN FOUR TODAY!

It comes in regular and spicy!! The spicy tube has a flame on it, or it will say ’csipos’ to tell you it’s spicy! There’s also another tube that looks really similar but is orange and instead of just having paprika in it, it also has red peppers and spices and is the base for Hungarian goulash, which I have slowly started vegetarianizing for my personal enjoyment.

THE BEST PART? THE TUBES ARE ONLY LIKE $3!! I live in Canada, and I find them in Polish/Italian/other ethnicity specialty stores. They last FOREVER because you only need tiny amounts! AND (at least the red one) is both vegetarian and vegan!! Really, we’re covering all our bases!! You need to refrigerate it after you open it, but it lasts forever.

BUY THE HUNGARIAN PAPRIKA PASTE, DO IT!!!! 

What your food cravings may mean and healthy ways to satisfy them: 

Chocolate - Magnesium deficiency. Dark chocolate is high in magnesium and is actually good for you! Other healthy sources are nuts, seeds, oats, leafy greens or bananas.   

Candy - Low blood sugar. For a short term fix, eat a piece of fruit. To stabilize your blood sugar level in the long run, add more whole grains to your diet. 

Chips - Stress. Try a breathing exercise, a warm bath or some other act of self-care that relaxes you. Or chew on nuts as chewing can relieve anxiety and stress. 

Cheese - Fatty acid deficiency (Omega 3, 6 or 9). Eat walnuts or flax seeds! 

Meat - Iron deficiency. Eat beans or dried fruit. Remember that Vitamin C helps with iron absorption! Sources of Vitamin C are citrus, tomatoes or berries. 

No matter which food you crave, it’s always a good idea to drink a large glass of water - Many people are so used to being dehydrated that they confuse their body’s signals of thirst with food cravings! 

Another important note: It’s more than okay to enjoy “unhealthy” food sometimes! So if you really really want those chips and nuts just don’t provide the same comfort - grab the chips and don’t feel guilty. Indulging in a favorite food lifts your mood and (despite how some people make it sound) it will not kill you.
