Kitchen tricks!

Aside from the kick, flip, and twist tricks: Antoine and I have decided to put together a small write up on kitchen tricks. We tossed this together in a couple afternoons, because let's face it, we didn't feel like eating that much whey (at least I didn't, I think Antoine breathes that shit). Anyway, let em roll!


Oatmeal supremacy


Omelet + Whey = Wheymelet


Return of the blender!


Master the blender

Adapted from the old Meal replacement-replacement article : Take these tips from a master blends man (Juji) : I work at a sports bar that makes these things and I've gotten a few tricks down on how to make the shakes perfect. Ummm... Take no note of the previous slide of me stabbing the shake with a steak knife. Okay here are the tips... Tip: This one is simple - keep the lid on when you first start blending. Remove it after the initial spin. Tip: Always add less liquid (In this case milk) than you need / you can always add more later. Tip: When blending, blend the wet ingredients together first all together. Tip: Add the dry ingredients (The powder) gradually or else you'll have a lot of it stick to the side. Also start at the lowest speed and continue increasing the blender's speed gradually instead of starting it at the top. Tip: Use the on / off ice crushing action to blend. This means hit on, off, on, off repetitively every few seconds. This gets it sucking down the dry ingredients and releasing air pockets. Tip: Wash your blender immediately after you are done - or you'll face hell.
