      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Kale, mustard greens (of which collards are a member), spinach, chard (close relative) top out as the most nutritious veggies. All really, really easy to grow almost all year round.

 

Seeds are really expensive, though...like a buck fitty for a 3 year supply.

we'll need a larger sample to reflect an average state of affair.

 

sample this: top ramen 10 cents a pack. throw in a few veggies and an egg....whoa! healthy power food for less than a big mac!

 

if you wanna make a difference, spread the news.

 

good one and cheap too, although one can cook quite a bit for under 3 dollars a plate.

why is it that we have to argue so much with self-proclaimed liberals in these pages to establish basic facts like the reality of food availability or the effect of advertising and dross mass culture on "free will"?

 

It gives them more time to focus on the politics of what's really important: personal lifestyle enhancement.

if "personal lifestyle enhancement" was a serious cross-cultural reality, then shit producers (mcd's, coke etc) would wither to a fraction of their current size.

and include a recipe. i'm getting tired of our 3 or 4 recipe repertoire.

You can collect kale seed, but don't try it with your other mustards, cuz those sluts cross breed with anything in the mustard family - dandelions, you name it.

 

Unholy, I tell ye!

Dinner tonight was:

 

Brussels Sprouts and fingerling potatoes parboiled in skillet and then sauteed with bacon, olive oil, shallots and garlic.

 

Jamaican Jerk chicken, just bought the Wegman's pre-marinated stuff, cooked in a skillet, sliced it, and served it on flour tortillas with home-made guac. Washed it all down with a homebrewed IPA.

Volunteering must not be in the Oppressive's playbook....big government will fix everything, all it takes is tax payer money, and everyone all the oppressives know that is unlimited.

just came in the door from building a yuppie garden all day to discover the good little woman had wrought some home-made pizza w/ black olives n' cheese - time to drown it in a gut-worth of table wine then pass the hell out, then wander out to smiff for a solo scaling of the monkey :brew:

More oppressive doctors telling us how to raise our kids!

 

Stay away from energy drinks, doctors say

By Frederik Joelving Mon May 30, 4:12 am ET

 

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – In a new report, a large group of American doctors urge kids and teens to avoid energy drinks and only consume sports drinks in limited amount.

 

The recommendations come in the wake of a national debate over energy drinks, which experts fear may have side effects.

 

"Children never need energy drinks," said Dr. Holly Benjamin, of the American Academy of Pediatrics, who worked on the new report. "They contain caffeine and other stimulant substances that aren't nutritional, so you don't need them."

 

And kids might be more vulnerable to the contents of energy drinks than grownups.

 

"If you drink them on a regular basis, it stresses the body," Benjamin told Reuters Health. "You don't really want to stress the body of a person that's growing."

 

For the new recommendations, published in the journal Pediatrics, researchers went through earlier studies and reports on both energy drinks and sports drinks, which don't contain any stimulants.

 

They note that energy drinks contain a jumble of ingredients -- including vitamins and herbal extracts -- with possible side effects that aren't always well understood.

 

While there aren't many documented cases of harm directly linked to the beverages, stimulants can disturb the heart's rhythm and may lead to seizures in very rare cases, Benjamin said.

 

Recently, she saw a 15-year-old boy with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder who came into the hospital with a seizure after having drunk two 24-ounce bottles of Mountain Dew, a soft drink that contains caffeine.

 

The boy was already taking stimulant ADHD medication, and the extra caffeine in principle might have pushed him over the edge, according to Benjamin.

 

"You just never know," she said. "It's definitely a concern."

 

Earlier this year, Pediatrics published another review of the literature on energy drinks.

 

In it, Florida pediatricians described cases of seizures, delusions, heart problems and kidney or liver damage in people who had drunk one or more non-alcoholic energy drinks -- including brands like Red Bull, Spike Shooter and Redline.

 

While they acknowledged that such cases are very rare, and can't be conclusively linked to the drinks, they urged caution, especially in kids with medical conditions (see Reuters story of February 14, 2011).

 

U.S. sales of non-alcoholic energy drinks are expected to hit $9 billion this year, with children and young adults accounting for half the market.

 

Manufacturers claim their products will enhance both mental and physical performance, and were quick to downplay the February report.

 

"The effects of caffeine are well-known and as an 8.4 oz can of Red Bull contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee (80 mg), it should be treated accordingly," Red Bull said in an emailed statement to Reuters Health.

 

Benjamin said that for most kids, water is the best thing to quench their thirst. If they happen to be young athletes training hard, a sports drink might be helpful, too, because it contains sugar.

 

But for kids who lead less-active lives, sports and energy drinks might just serve to pile on extra pounds, fueling the national obesity epidemic.

 

While she acknowledged that more research is needed, Benjamin said the safest thing to drink is water.

It depends on which kale you have. Many varieties are biennial in which case you can let them flower and go to seed the 2nd year.

Another vote for what Dru's having, though come to think of it, dinner tonight is local salmon at the graduation dinner for the Nisqually tribe. Odds are the ham is coming from Walmart though. :o
