Asmr is a non-verbal language that humans share with animals.
The language’s origins are murky, but it was used by the early civilizations of both Egypt and India. It was later borrowed by the Indo-European language family, which eventually formed English. The words are basically an amalgamation of the words for “cook” and “life” and are pronounced something like “bak” and “blah”.
I think this is a great example of how the human brain works. A simple sentence that’s easy to understand has a lot more information that’s going on than a complicated sentence that’s hard to understand.
You don’t need to be religious to understand the power of the kitchen. When you cook with good ingredients, you get an incredible amount of nutrition. But when you don’t have the right ingredients, things go wrong. For example let’s say I’m making a chicken breast. Chicken breast is pretty hard to come by. Most chicken breasts are either bone-in or skin-on.
I have seen many recipes that have nothing in the fridge, but are still perfectly good. Its so easy to fall into these traps. The best way to avoid these pitfalls is to go to the grocery store and look for the freshest ingredients.
Most grocery stores will have a section that will be marked as a “non-perishable” aisle. This means that most products are shelf-stable. If you see a product labeled as “perishable” you should definitely check it out. Even if you only see one item in the produce section that is guaranteed to be perishable, make sure you buy enough to last you for the entire week.
My favorite grocery store is my local Whole Foods. The produce section in particular is fantastic. I have a list of all the items I need to buy and what they are in the produce section.
I go through each item I buy and then write a note about how much of the item I will eat. I then go through the produce section and mark the items that I need to eat. I also buy the non-perishable items (so they are non-perishable, too) and mark each one. I always mark the non-perishable items first because they are cheaper, but they don’t have as much shelf life as the perishable items.
The produce section is one of the most important places to buy from because you can eat the entire thing from there and not feel like you’re eating junk. It’s easy to spend so much time there, so be sure to spend as much time as you can there so you feel satisfied. A good way to do this is to just go through the produce section and mark the items that you want to eat.
