Food, Cooking, and Recipes

Here I share some thoughts on food, cooking, and recipes. Some of these are posted to my Super Shrink Me wellness website.

Instant Recipes

One of my favorites categories of recipes are ‘instant recipes’ that take very little time for preparation.


  • Cacao Hot Cocoa. Heat milk on the stove. Add one tablespoon organic sugar. Add two tablespoons of organic cacao powder.
  • Flavored Fizzy Water. Get some quality sparkling water, such as Pellegrino. Squeeze a lime. Combine in a 12 ounce or larger glass.
  • Mango Drink. Take three servings of Trader Joe’s Mango & Cream bars. Place these in a bowl or large mug. Add milk and stir to desired consistency.
  • Molasses Milk. Stir molasses into a glass of cold milk. Using a blender or drink mixer can help make the drink more foamy.



These recipes make use of a cold pressed masticating-style juicer like the Omega J8006.



The following recipes make use of a high speed blender such as the like the Magic Bullet NutriBullet or the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Blender.


For a quick soup, use some Better Than Bouillon to make a bowl of bouillon. Then add a generous amount of Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. The bits of garlic and sesame will create something similar to miso soup.


The substitutes category of foods are items you can eat instead of something else, while getting a similar flavor and satisfaction.

  • Cereal – Do you like the satisfying flavor of breakfast cereal and milk? Try having 1/2 cup of organic whole milk and 4 tablespoons of Kretschmer wheat germ.
  • Crab Meat Rangoon – Instead of eating deep fat fried crab meat rangoon, try wrapping some cream cheese inside of Mission Extra Fluffy Flour Tortillas. For a little extra kick, try using Philadelphia Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread.
  • Pancakes – Pancakes are typically made with highly processed flour. Instead of pancakes, try making some Better Oats Steel Cut Maple Brown Sugar and add a bit more sweetness with some Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup. Or, try the Great River Maple brand of Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup.
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich – The bread used for a PB&J sandwich has a lot of carbs and calories that will make you crave more food. Try having some PB&J mixed together with a small serving of milk. That will hit the spot without inducing more cravings. Be sure to use all-fruit jelly with no sugar added. Otherwise, this won’t work and the refined sugar will induce severe cravings and hunger.
  • Quesadilla Without the Tortilla. On a plate you can melt some shredded cheese in the microwave. Then add sour cream and your favorite salsa or guacamole. This will taste delicious, but not have the calories and carbs that will make you overeat.
