Foodini Is A 3D Printer That Lets You Print Dishes With Fresh Ingredients | TechCrunch

Foodini is a 3D printer for foodstuffs. Its Florida-based makers are hoping their time-saving device becomes as ubiquitous on kitchen countertops as the microwave oven has become.

But instead of forcing people to rely on highly processed convenience food that’s larded with additives and unhealthy levels of salt, as microwave meals generally are, they want Foodini to get more people cooking with fresh ingredients, rather than reaching for that pre-processed packet.

Some day, producing  OK food at home will be no harder than producing OK coffee — slip some pods of this and than into a machine and out comes — ravioli.  Or peanut butter.  Or something.

Do yourself a favor.  Google up Learn To Cook and try, first, some small things.  If you can scramble an egg, look up Omelette.   If you can grill a burger, look up grilled asparagus.  Expand just slightly each time, and you’ll never have a need for the food pod machine.

Easy, nutritious breakfast — Huevos Rancheros

This morning’s breakfast, thought we’d pass it on.

Mmm...huevos rancheros

Spray a small skillet with cooking spray (or use a small amount of vegetable oil or butter) and warm up the skillet.    Heat a corn tortilla (corn tortilla, not wheat, to be authentic, and, if you will, gluten free) about 30 seconds on each side, until it’s just starting to turn brown.   Set aside.

Fry an egg in the same skillet until the whites are set and the yolk is (if you care for it) still a little runny.  During the last little bit of cooking, either heat some ranchero sauce (enchilada sauce works fine, salsa works fine), or just pour it in with the egg.

Assemble on the serving plate the tortilla topped with the egg and the sauce.

What is the best vegetable for me to eat?

A cook sautees onions and peppers.

The best vegetables are THE ONES YOU WILL EAT.

Having said that …

Potatoes and corn are, technically, starches even though they come from  are plants.  So you could eat too many of those.   Otherwise, it’s hard to imagine over-consuming vegetables or getting too many calories from vegetables.

Green is good.

A variety of colors signals a variety of nutrients, to some degree.

Cooked is not necessarily worse than raw.  Light cooking can increase the bio-availability of the nutrients you’re eating.


Eat the ones you will eat.
