Bread-Not All What It’s Baked up to be!

If you buy baked goods such as breads, pastries, pastas, and deserts look for the U, UD, K or  on the package and if it does have any these symbols.    The main ingredient used in baked goods that is not Kosher, L - Cysteine which is made from human hair, and is used as a dough conditioner in bakery products. These ingredient derived from human hair is mainly made in Japan and China, which is made from the wheat we ship overseas and then in return it’s processed without FDA regulation or over-site; China/Japan in return sell back to US at a reduced cost.  The end result of this…. Americans are eating human hair!

I challenge you to think about this, the next time you go eat pizza with hand tossed dough, thin crust, and bread sticks from Pizza Hut, Domino's,  and bread from Subway and Jason’s Deli, be warned the bread dough contains L-Cysteine, and the shredded cheese contains cellulose to prevent caking which is derived from pig gelatin.

Good News! We have found Natures Own Bread 100% whole wheat contains no L-Cysteine, unfortunately for the cost conscious, this bread retails for $2.89, however you can purchase the bread at the local bread outlet store located in Grand Prairie, TX for approximately .89 cents a loaf.  Kroger also has prepackaged pastries with the Kosher U symbol, which contains no L-Cysteine and of course our favorite, Costco has a Kosher make your own pizza crust, and animal rennent free cheese.    Until next time Chow-Baby!

Breakfast Burrito gets a speeding ticket by Texas State Trooper!

Marriage is a on-going comedy show! my husband was late for work this morning due to his inability to stop hitting snooze on the alarm clock, now flying up Dallas North Tollway, he's pulled over by a TX Trooper.  Why does he decide to taunt the man eating  his chicken sausage, potato, egg and cheese breakfast burrito.  Alim graciously excepts the ticket as the Trooper comments on his nice breakfast,  and as he pulls off screaming out of his window. That's why you are not getting any of my burrito and I am just gonna fax it to my wife's attorney John Loza anyway, you have wasted your time! Insanity at 6am..too early
Here is the easy, quick recipe for the upcoming morning on the go.  
1  potato cubed and sauteed until brown or steamed in the microwave until done
2 Eggs
2 T cheddar cheese
1 chicken breast cubed or 1/4 c homemade chicken sausage.  (cooked)
fresh cilantro 
1t oregano
1 t black pepper
1/4 t cumin
2 Kosher tortillas
fresh salsa on the side 
Scramble eggs over medium heat, mix in oregano, pepper, cumin, potatoes, and chicken, cook until done. turn off heat, sprinkle with cheddar cheese and cilantro.  Spoon into warm tortilla, wrap and serve with salsa.  Hopefully this will help anyone in a pinch for time so that their burrito will not get a speeding ticket. Until next time..chow-baby!
