in reply to Free food I want to see in my company's kitchen

<seriously>

One thing that I have taken to lately, and is a good snack food for hard driving coding sessions is applesauce and chocolate soy protein powder. It stores very well, is cheap, low fat, high protein, vege-compatible, and tasty.

</seriously> :-)

    Err "chocolate soy protein powder" thats one good word followed by three that should never be uttered with the first ;) Saying chocolate in front of those three resembles that time your mother set you up with a friends daughter saying she has a "nice personality." We could just call that powder the "nice personality" mix ;)

    BTW you sound like a lousy hacker, I mean you are worried about fat, protien and veges? Are you some sort of new wave health consious hacker? ;) /me keeps a roll of hostes donuts and a couple of bottles of pepsi and doctor pepper. You know its a bad day when your desk has two bottles of cola, two empty donut wrappers and a half drunk cup of hot coco ;)

      Eh..... it comes in vanilla too :-)

      Are you some sort of new wave health consious hacker?

      No, I'm one of the people who don't make much money and don't have health insurance.... so I can't afford to get diabetes or a heart problem, which sadly many from the "desk-set" are heading into.

      The combination of all four words together does seem rather bad. However, the words "chocolate" and "powder" are okay together. Check out these example sentences that use them together:

      • My mom serves chocolate-chip brownies with powdered sugar on top.
      • To make a good chocolate ice cream, blend together 2 cups of milk, 1 cup of cocoa powder, and 3/4 cup of sugar in a blender until aerated, then freeze in an ice-cream freezer.

      See? Those words go fine together, if you do it right. HTH.HAND.

      Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure the word "soy" is the main problem in the previous combination. The word "soy" should generally occur in the context of stir-fry or wok cooking and is usually followed by the word "sauce", although this may be omitted if it is implied by context. It should not occur in combination with the word "burger" or the phrase "La Choy".


      Sanity? Oh, yeah, I've got all kinds of sanity. In fact, I've developed whole new kinds of sanity. Why, I've got so much sanity it's driving me crazy.

    This comment (and the responses to it) reminded me of a passage in one of my favorite books, The Phoenix Guards, by Steven Brust:

    "The days became weeks, as they will when allowed to heap themselves upon one another unattended, and these weeks likewise turned themselves into months of seventeen days with no regard to the hours and minutes they used up in doing so."

    I discovered that months also, when heaping unattended, turn themselves into years with little or no regard to the days and weeks they use up in doing so. I used to drink two Mountain Dews each morning and thought nothing of devouring half a box of Little Debbie snack cakes (especially those Nutty Bars or Swiss Cake Rolls). But as I age I'm finding that some of my poor health choices are starting to catch up with me.

    It is hard to believe, but we will not be young forever, even if the definition of 'young' keeps moving. Thanks for the snack tip ... I assume you mix the applesauce and powder? I'll check into it.

      Yeah, the junk food catches up with you eventually, about the mid-50's with me. Judging by how many hospital bills are caused by it, it is about as bad as smoking cigarettes. With Health Care costs becoming the number 1 factor in having employees, it would seem that companies would be screening people according to their dietary habits.

      I mix it like you say. Somtimes I dilute it with water, so its like a thick slurry and drink it like a shake.

      Since you are in the market for ideas, another neat one I discovered, is to mix coffee and those "meals in a can" they market to dieters and elderly people. It makes a high protein( a tasty) cafe-au-lait sort of drink. Actually I came upon the soy powder and applesauce as a way of getting the "canned meals" protein a bit cheaper. Most of those canned meals are soy-protein-isolate, vitamins, and some flavor. The soy-protein-isolate can be bought in quantity very cheap on the net.
