O.T. What are you eating? (AKA the burrito thread)

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Awesome recovery smoothie.

1 Frozen banana
1 Large glob of peanut butter (refrigerated)
6-8 oz Chocolate milk

Blend

Freakin delish, killer texture, makes you feel good.


.57 cents

Bite me Jamba Juice with your $6.00 drinks.



Protip: McDonalds straws are superior to all others. I've tested 7.38 million versions. McDonalds straws have the best rigidity-diameter-length ratio and are the number 1 performer for thick drinks.

Yeah but you have to go to McDonalds to get them.

Eating current fav pre-ride breakfast:
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup TJ's coconut beverage
1 small handful each frozen strawberries and blueberries
1 small handful walnuts
Top with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup and a fat dollup of yogurt

I don't, and neither should anyone else.

I neglected to mention the Protip acquisition method. My fault, sorry.

Ask a few friends, family members, coworkers, etc, "Hey, next time you are at McD's could you grab me a few straws please?". Within a short time you'll be telling them, "OK, enough already, thanks!", because you will have a kitchen drawer stuffed full of them.

Roasted asparagus.

Brush with a little oil, sprinkle with kosher salt, bake on a sheet tray @ 375 for 25 minutes.

Spaghetti is my meal of choice before rides.

Bonus points if you ride an Italian steel frame tarck bike with a gut full of Italian wheat and beef.

Oh yeah, roasted with parm.

I cooked them that way for a bunch of kids once and they loved them. Their mom's were like, "Brussel sprouts? Really?"

I am SURPRISED kids ate them. They seem like a food that a lot of adults would even have issues with, being all stinky you know?

Brussel sprouts are really just baby cabbages and I think if we reclassified them more people might eat them. I was turned off to them for a while and then someone made me try some and I liked them. It was the name which is associated with suckage that turned me off. If you called it a Petite Baby Cabbage or something like that it would skyrocket.

Boiling them is what gives them that acidic taste. Roasting them takes a lot of the edge off.

I could eat used bike tires with good parm.

The reason with brussels sprouts are associated with suckage is that baby boomers and silent generation boiled them like potatoes which ends up with them being mushy and really nasty. If you cook them any other way they are tasty.
