Alright fuckboys, time to cook again. Now you’re probably thinking, “But i can just buy bread!”.


You can also cook it, idiot.

And trust me, you’d be surprised how much people will love some basic-ass homemade bread. Not to mention it’s cheap as fucking dirt, absolutely delicious, and useful in so many meals. Remember that paprikash? Now use your own bread. A recipe later (hint, it’s the bacon) will be able to utilize this bread to make a sandwich. Toast it, sunny side up some eggs and boom there you go, delicious breakfast. And how fucking independent are you if you don’t need the store to make your own goddamn bread, you fucking survivor man. You don’t need no bitch-ass walmart to make a steamy loaf. Alright, enough chat, let’s get cooking.

Here’s what you’ll need.

¼ oz packet active dry yeast (BUY)

1 tbs salt

2 tbs oil (I use Canola but most shit works)

2 ¼ warm cup water

6 ½ cup flour (the all-purpose flour you have will work, but Bread Flour will make it less chewy)

3 tbs + ½ tsp sugar

In addition, you’ll need something to actually cook this in. (Get two of these bread pans)

Get a big-ass bowl. Excellent, now put the warm water in it, but make sure it’s not too hot. Too hot and you’ll kill the yeast (which is alive, by the way). Now dissolve the yeast and the ½ tsp of sugar into the bowl (make sure it’s ½ teaspoon and NOT tablespoon). Let it sit until bubbles form on the surface.

Awesome. Now, use a whisk to whisk together 3 cups of flour, the remaining sugar, and the salt in a separate bowl (you’re not combining it with the water yet). Get it smooth.

Stir oil into the yeast mixture. Now, pour the flour mixture into the yeast mixture and beat until smooth (use your heads or a large spoon, not the whisk). Stir in the remaining flour ½ cup at a time until the dough is soft and you’re satisfied with how it looks and feels. This is something you’ll have to learn over time as you cook.

Lay some flour out on a clean kitchen surface and knead the dough until it’s nice and smooth and has an elastic feel to it. If you don’t know how to knead bread, I’m not going to write it out so just watch this video (here). It’s a minute long and shows pretty well how to knead dough. Do this for 10 minutes.

Now placed it into a large, greased bowl. (to grease something, use a small paper towl dipped gently in crisco or oil to rub it down). Turn it over once to grease both sides of the bread. Now cover it in seran wrap (make sure it’s air tight), and let it sit for 1 ½ to 2 hours; if you did everything right, it should double in size.

Now take it out and push it down, compressing it a bit. Place it onto a floured surface, and break it into 2 pieces. Form into loafs and place each loaf into a greased bread pan (same greasing method as before). Cover with seran wrap, and let double in size again for 1 ½ to 2 hours.

Bake that shit at 375 degrees on the center rack until it’s a nice golden brown. If you don’t have a thermometer, or just don’t feel like poking holes in your bread, you want the crust to be a nice golden brown and for it to sound hollow when you tap it.

There you go. You cooked bread.

I'm proud of you.

While I appreciate the article, this one actually specifically says to avoid red meat, cold cuts, and to try to get most protein from plants (citing environmental and health concerns). It also says that most animal-sourced protein does contribute a lot of unhealthy fat to a diet.

"If you enjoy red meat, consider eating it in small amounts or only on special occasions. Processed meats, such as bacon, hot dogs, sausages, and cold cuts should be avoided."

Not trying to diss on your article, but it isn't a very good argument against vegan- or vegetarianism.

I can provide some peer-reviewed studies as to why a vegan diet is better, but analyzing environmental impacts of a carnivorous (especially red meat centered) diet is a good starting point. I'd try reading The China Study as well.

I started reading this books called surviving a borderline parent. It is really helpful. Check it out! Surviving a Borderline Parent:...

Even if she isn’t diagnosed she sounds exactly like someone with BPD.

I also started therapy but this book has been helpful to see that I’m not alone.

I said that I don’t have income until my job starts, that I can’t buy groceries without money from my mother, that I am following the conditions we set. Here’s a link to a book to teach you how to read.

Learn to Read Activity Book: 101 Fun Lessons to Teach Your Child to Read

u/hailkelemvor · 1 pointr/insaneparents

I highly recommend [Deal with It!] ( It was the first book that I read as a 13yo that said it was okay to like boys, girls, or no one at all. Talked about sexual assault, what no means, what it meant if you thought you were trans, and talked about different kinds of breasts and labia. It was the first time I had heard about breast reductions, and ended up getting one a few years later. This book changed my life, and I cannot recommend it enough.

edit: [A very good article about the site that created the book, and how dope it is.] (

I would read a couple books in your situation.

This one helped me put some perspective about my relationship with my mother. "Stop caretaking the borderline or narcissist and get on with life"

This other was a good read too as if the author was a fly on the wall of my childhood home

a safety razor, and if they are worried about chrome and other cheap metals, they make all Stainless steel razors too.

I actually saw an amazon review a week or two ago with a parent that was acting this way about bedsheets. They were these sheets/comforter set and she returned them. What’s the saddest is the kid WANTED the sheets and liked them, and she returned them anyway. Stupidest thing I’ve read, made me irrationally angry.

Parenting issues aside, if you are struggling with anxiety and panic attacks Bronwyn Fox’s book Power Over Panic was a game-changer for me.

Ffs. I didn’t realized how offended I could be by this. I knew the “science” behind the argument was bollocks, but to attribute all those things to injections causes more damage than even just allowing deadly diseases to proliferate. The ones that bother me most are those often associated with early childhood trauma - OCD, autoimmune disorders, (edit to add) chronic fatigue, speech delays. Then there’s scoliosis, which also runs in my family, going back to before the polio vax, even. Jfc.

Edit: For more information on the biological effects of trauma, I can’t recommend this book enough: The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. While it’s fascinating, I must also recommend it with a TRIGGER WARNING.

Classic Narcissist, my mother is exactly the same way. I cut her out of my life five years ago and never looked back, I suggest you do the same.

The reality is:

- She is not capable of empathy

- She does not have your best interest in mind

- She will forever make unreasonable demands of you even if they kill you

- You will always be wrong, the problem, and the enemy

In summary, you can't win GTFO.


Also if you're male, here's a resource that changed my life:
