5/3/1 Nutrition

I generally avoid nutritional discussion, but I got some major inspiration from the wisdom of Jim Wendler this morning:

"(On kitchen utensils) First of all, you don't need pots and pans. You need a pot and a pan. The pan is to cook (many) grilled cheese sandwiches. Grilled cheese fucking rules and should be eaten three to four times a day as I've found a direct correlation between being awesome and the uninhibited consumption of grilled cheese.

As for the pot, you need that to cook and sterilize your Fina. That should be a given.

So make sure you have a pan big enough to cook 2-3 grilled cheese at once and a pot big enough to house a massive bottle of Fina.

I'll take a pass on the Fina, but the grilled cheese sounded right on the money this morning. So I had two sandwiches. As for the pot, use it to cook stews, curries and even whole chickens.

How to make grilled cheese in a pan (for the cooking impaired):

Step 1: Take two slices of bread per sandwich.

Step 2: Butter two slices of bread per sandwich.

Step 3: Slice enough cheese.

Step 4: Find a pan. If making more than one sandwich, make sure the slices can fit into the pan with room to spare, otherwise they will not cook properly.

Step 5: Heat the pan.

Step 6: Place slice(s) of bread, buttered side down, into the pan. Place cheese on top of (unbuttered) side of the slice. Place the other slice atop the cheese so that the buttered side is on top.

Step 7: Grill for about a minute and a half, or until frying side is brown and crispy.

Step 8: Flip sandwich over and grill until other buttered side is brown and crispy. Be careful, it will brown much more quickly than the first slice.

Step 9: Eat and enjoy.
