Building a Better, Paleo, Gluten-Free Chicken Nugget

I am so excited to try this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Domestic Man

Gluten-Free, Paleo, Perfect Health Diet

I have always been proud of my Paleo “Chick-fil-A” nugget recipe from a couple years back, and it has definitely been a hit with readers. If fact, I’m sure a few of you stumbled upon my little blog because of them. But to be honest, I’ve never been satisfied with the texture of the nuggets themselves; while they are very similar to the thin coating that you’ll find at Chick-fil-A, I personally prefer a spongier breading around my chicken nuggets. So while experimenting with breading techniques for a different recipe (I’ll post the results of that one on Thursday), I happened upon my eureka moment – something I like to call “reverse battering.”

You see, I’ve always been taught to bread meats using a liquid-then-flour (or flour-liquid-flour/breading) method. Sounds logical, right? It’d be just crazy to not put flour or breading on nuggets before frying them. But after some YouTube…

Female Bodies: A Weighty Issue

I think everyone should read this… no matter what your weight, what is “said to be true” about your body isn’t always accurate.

shattersnipe: malcontent & rainbows

Hypothesis:

We have, as a society, such a completely disordered, distorted perception of female bodies that the vast majority of people are incapable of recognising what “overweight” actually looks like on a woman, let alone “healthy”. As such, we’re now at a point where women are not only raised to hate their bodies as a matter of course, but are shown, from childhood, a wholly inaccurate picture of what they “should” look like – a narrow, nigh on impossible physical standard they are then punished, both socially and medically, for failing to attain.

I don’t say this lightly. I say it because this is the only conclusion supported by the facts.

Let’s examine the evidence, shall we?

1: BMI

Overwhelmingly, the measurement used to determine whether or not someone is a “healthy weight” is the BMI, or Body Mass Index. Most people are still taught it in schools; indeed, it’s…

Giving Random Acts of Kindness

image

I’ve been reading this book titled “The power of giving”. I read just a few pages each night before bed ( since so much of my reading is school related these days) and have really been touched by the message of self less giving it brings.

While I have always been a very giving person, it has not always been altruistic. It’s been astounding to look at just how selfish my giving over the years has been.

However there are two things in my life which I realized I have always shared no strings attached – my cooking and my artistic expression.

So lately I have been making and giving away wood panels with pictures and messages i have printed cut out and glued on them.

Many times I have created one and then someone in my life comes along who fits the creation perfectly.

However, for the one I will be giving  away tomorrow this person inspired me. Reminded me of a previous version of myself.  Slightly broken,  a little lost, and not quite sure where she stands with herself. But she is wise beyond her age and has had some life experience no one her age deserves.

So tomorrow I take her this board to remind her she is love. A walking,  living,  breathing, poem. Some one born from darkness to shine light.

Tomorrow I hope to give her something she might not see or feel right now, but I see it and know it’s there.

That will be my gift, my random act of kindness for the day

Going Viral on WordPress.com: 26 Million Views and Counting — Seth’s Story

I love the idea, that we get married for those we love. It stops being about “us”!

The WordPress.com Blog

On November 2, 2013, Seth Smith hit publish on an article entitled Marriage Isn’t For You. Within a few hours, his self-hosted WordPress site couldn’t handle the tens of thousands of visitors reading the post. He moved his article and then his entire site over to WordPress.com, where the WordPress.com team did some additional tweaks to keep his site up and ready for the ten million visitors who would end up visiting his site in a single day. The article has since received 26 million total views. We talked to Seth about going viral on WordPress.com.

Q: Did you anticipate that your post would get that many readers?

A: Not at all! In my wildest dreams I thought that maybe, just maybe, that post would have received 3,000 to 5,000 views. To me, that would have been wonderful. So the fact that it’s had over 26 million views has been quite the shock!

Q: How did…
