Welcome back to our Video Q&A series! Today’s question comes from Tami: “I’ve seen your sourdough starter videos and have my own starter sitting on the counter now (started 8 days ago). It doesn’t take 12 hours to double, more like 3 to 5. Should I still wait the full 12 hours before feeding it again, even though it “falls” by that point? And I know you said “several weeks” for it to be ready. It smells good and sour now, will two weeks be enough? Thank you, and thanks for all the free resources! I really appreciate them!” — Tami
Welcome to the first Video Q&A at gnowfglins.com. We’ll have many more of these in the coming weeks! Today’s question comes from Katie: “I was reading your no-microwave post and was wondering if you have any suggestions for while one is at work. I often bring my leftovers to work with me and that is where avoiding the microwave seems impossible. Any suggestions?” Read this post for the video (and print) answer.
Today’s question comes from DeDe: “I have some raw cream that’s been in my fridge for about a month. It now smells sour but not quite like sour cream. What can I do with it? It doesn’t smell “bad” necessarily like pasteurized cream would smell and it’s not clumpy. It’s very thick, though, just like thick cream.”
We’re generating great ideas and discussions in the Fundamentals eCourse forums. My post today stems from Jessica’s forum question: “I am trying to stretch all my grass-fed meats because they cost quite a bit more. Does anyone have ideas for meatless dishes?” I share a few of my ideas, and then leave it to you to fill the comments with your great ideas.
Another Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), another Q & A… This question comes from a reader, Tiffany. She asks, “I was hoping you could explain about the proteins in beans and legumes. I’ve heard some vegetarian friends say you have to have a grain with your beans to make a complete protein out of the nutrients. It just doesn’t jive. If the nutritional content is 9g protein per serving, isn’t that what’s there?”
