A fundamental requirement to taking your life back from the system that wants to enslave you is to start cooking for yourself.  Back in the day I used to eat a lot of takeout foods.  I never really got into the frozen TV dinners that you see throughout every grocery store freezer aisle.  My disposable income was being wasted on takeout food or fast food.  I lived in Playa Del Rey by myself for a couple years and used to get a Gorgonzola New York Strip Steak on top of garlic mashed potatoes with extra Gorgonzola sauce for the garlic knots that Berri’s Play Cafe (defunct) used to serve.  I ate it too often, in fact, and was doing a number to my immune system, for certain.  Then again, I didn’t actually have a kitchen at that tiny illegal unit that afforded me L.A. Beach community lifestyle on the cheap, but I digress.  But when you start cooking for yourself on a regular basis, you’re eating cleaner than you would be if you continue eating takeout.  We all love delicious foods and all, but our health is of the utmost importance and I cannot stress that enough.  But rather than further digress into the whole story about how I cam to this, I’m just going to give you a quick little cheat code for you to be able to whip up something good and healthy on the quick.

Kim Chi Chicken Cheater

  • Chopped chicken breast
  • 1 stalk of kale
  • 1 carrot
  • red pepper
  • Kim-chi – no MSG
  • brown rice

When I don’t know what to cook, I’ll just chop up 1 chicken breast tender, strip 1 stalk of kale and chop it up, skin a carrot and chop that too.  I don’t get too carried away chopping and start cooking the chicken first to cook the rawness out before adding any vegetables.  I don’t go buckwild on the seasoning, just grind a little sea salt and pepper before adding the kale and carrot.  But I like spice, sometimes I just don’t want to think too much.  That’s how I got the idea to just cheat by adding some Kim-chi.


I never really went for the whole anti-carbs movement, whatever that was.  But at the same time, I don’t like to overdo it either.  So as you can see by the picture that I’ve only got a small dollop of brown rice.  For the most part, white rice doesn’t get consumed at our home.  I hope you found this post somewhat useful.
