The Wok isn’t Dirty I swear



Ever see a Chinese restaurant on TV and they show the cook making a ton of food in what looks like a really dirty wok? Or maybe you have a friend who is asian and owns one of them? Either way, it could be a bit daunting to see your food being tossed around in a not so clean kitchen tool.

The truth is, it is clean.  Very clean! It looks brown from countless gallons of oil being thrown in it while super hot. Asian food is full of flavor and color and what do you get when you combine all the colors of a spectrum? Blackish, brown - DARK you get Dark colors!!!


There is compounded flavors embedded in every inch of that wok.  Meals upon meals with varying flavors, acidity, spice and sweetness clinging to the sides like a mountain goat going for a stroll up a damn vertical!


That imbued flavor helps give specific tastes to food.  Sometimes that is why we can never duplicate a recipe we had at a local restaurant, simply because we have no idea what was cooked in it before.  

So next time you decide to eat out, don't judge the cleanliness by the color of the wok.  Be happy knowing you are about to get some great flavors in your food.  Just imagine the stories behind it!

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
