Cole and Broccoli Slaw Recipe

Most of us are familiar with Cole slaw. The term “coleslaw” arose in the 18th century as an anglicisation of the Dutch term “koolsla” (“kool” in Dutch sounds like “cole”) meaning “cabbage salad”.

The 1770 recipe book The Sensible Cook: Dutch Foodways in the Old and New World contains a recipe attributed to the author’s Dutch landlady, who mixed thin strips of cabbage with melted butter, vinegar, and oil. The recipe for coleslaw as it is most commonly prepared is fairly young, since it was only during the mid-18th Century that mayonnaise was invented. According to The Joy of Cooking (1997), raw cabbage is the only entirely consistent ingredient in coleslaw; the type of cabbage, dressing, and added ingredients vary widely. Vinaigrette, mayonnaise, and sour cream based dressings are all listed; of course if you want vege-bacon, carrots, bell peppers, pineapple, pickles, onions, and herbs are specifically mentioned as possible added ingredients.  I tend to stick to the basic recipe of vegan mayo, carrots and cabbage though I have been known to add finally chopped dill pickles.

   Another variation is to replace the cabbage with finally grated broccoli steps. Of course you have to peel off the thick out layer but from there it is pretty much like Cole slaw.

 

For the lifehacker it is important to make use of every part of a fruit or vegetable whenever possible. In the East coast of the USA  we never heard of broccoli slaw but apparently it has been a classical part of traditional Southern American Cuisine

 

Broccoli slaw is a variation of traditional coleslaw with shredded raw broccolistalks substituted for cabbage. It may also contain mayonnaisecarrots, vinegar or lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. It is commonly served at potlucks or “covered dish” parties. It is also called broccoli cole slaw or broccoli slaw salad.

I was surprised to learn that Broccoli slaw is sometimes served with ramen, and the television cook Paula Deen has suggested it.  Classic Southern broccoli slaw has considerable mayonnaise, of course you can by vegan mayonnaise in most health food or natural food stores.  A modern modified Southern recipe removes the ramen noodles so popular in the south in the sixties, keeps the mayonnaise, and uses almonds. Of course if you want you can add virtually any type of nut.

If you make your own mayo you can replace the sugar with Agave Syrup and the salt with Vegit, a low sodium salty tasting herbal product.

Effective Lifehacking

If you are looking for shortcuts to getting things done, this is the blog for you!

assembly-850845__340

There is a saying that the truth you ignore will come back to bite you on the butt! As you address specific obstacles, bottlenecks or constraints, be prepared to subordinate any further steps you plan to take in your lifehacking process until the issue or any other bottleneck is resolved.

 

abstract-1861459__340

Discovering obstacles, bottlenecks or constraints (OB and C) that are slowing down your lifehack is an important skill to develop. This basic skill can be developed through the use of what are called assessment tools. The most popular low tech approach to assessments is the questionnaire.  Questionnaires, can help you recognize your strengths and weaknesses as well as previously unknown and unrecognized “OB and Cs”. Once these have been isolated they can be eliminated or compensated for.  This will  result in a shifting of the bottleneck. Without the obstacle and the bottleneck to slow the process, the lifehack will be completed successfully.

In previous Hacks on bottlenecks, we learned that a lifehacker needs to understand cause and effect and have the ability to recognize and isolate an obstacle or bottleneck when it appears. There are five key steps for eliminating obstacles, bottlenecks or constraints. These are to:

how-to-hack-your-life-front-757x1024

  • Identify the obstacles and bottleneck by evaluating all ELRs.
  • Identify obstacles, and constraint to increase efficiency.
  • Minimize all other resources that are connected to the obstacle and the bottleneck.
  • Expand the useful properties of the obstacle as a way of eliminating the bottleneck or at the very least increasing the capacity of the bottleneck.
  • Regularly repeat the process since a new obstacle may arise to create a new bottleneck that may require further action.

Through assessing, isolating and removing “OB and Cs” you are isolating the root factor for the problem.

 

 Lifehack!  In the end you will save, money, save time and create greater happiness.

100s of Lifehacks: Today’s Lifehack is How Build a DeskTop Computer for $60 or Less

This hack requires a bit of time, patience, some dumpster diving and a friendly computer repair shop.

arrow-964733__340

Here are the details in this hack.

  • Often when the external hard drive on someone’s computer crashes they dump the entire unit including a perfectly function keyboard and screen.
  • You can find perfectly functional and “free” computer screens, keyboards and a mouse (the computer part not the rodent) at the Transfer Station (we used to call them the town dump.) or put out on the sidewalk for pickup.
  • If you know when the pickups are made you can go there the day before to find what you need.
  • Now for the last piece of the puzzle – Many computer repair shops especially in small college towns or locations that are 20- 30 miles from the nearest mall have perfectly functional hard drives that no one seems to want and that may even have original software installed. You can often barter for it (See the chapter in my books on barter) or buy it for as little as $40-$60.
  • All you have to do now is take the hard drive home, plug all the pieces in and your good to go!

Think and Grow Rich with these Money Hacks

puzzle-1721271__340

A financial lifehack (or life hack) refers to any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency concerning how you profit from personal resources including money,  in all walks of life. The term originated with computer experts who suffer from information overload or those with a playful curiosity in the ways they can accelerate their workflow in ways other than programming but has since become part of ordinary language especially around millennials.

  dollar-1362244__340

Here are two of my favorite money life-hacks

  1. The Track Your Investments Hack

Every once in a while a story appears in the paper describing how some celebrity has been ripped off by their assistant, accountant or investment broker.  It is often said the “the devil is in the details” and this is especially so concerning personal finance. On the macro-level it is important to track your investments. This is how you put this hack into action:

  1. Maintain detailed records of any transactions you’ve made with a broker.
  2. Now look at your monthly brokerage reports.
  3. Compare the two.
  4. If there are any discrepancies contact your broker immediately to discuss and resolve them.
  5. To paraphrase the Taoist philosopher Lao Tzu who says, “It is easier to solve a problem when it is small,”  hacker philosophy is based on the idea that it is easier to clear up errors when they become evident.  If you keep track of your investments they will become evident sooner rather than later.

The Save Time Checkbook Balancing Hack

One of the busiest wastes of time is balancing your checkbook to the last penny. When entering a transaction in your checkbook the most efficient and productive approach is to round your checks up to the next dollar. In twelve months you’ll probably end up within $20. of the actual balance and you’ll be the one who has gained.

Game Theory =A Survival Hack – Create a Basic Disaster Supply Kit

rug-logo

(Also Known as the Lifehack Guru)

A few years back the area I live in was hit by back flooding. My home sitting on a mountain was spared but the flooding was bad below our area that FEMA came in. I volunteered to help people ”dig” out. Many were unprepared for a disaster. Are you?

arrow-1294467__340

Here is a list of what you need to have in order to be prepared for a disaster.

towel-1774910__340

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:

  1. Fill a fireproof box.Items should include identification and other important cards, financial records, family photos and emergency cash in small bills.
  2. Design a disaster plan.It should include whom to contact and where to meet family members in case of an emergency. All family members should know the plan and the numbers to call.
  3. Make a list.Include emergency phone numbers such as 911, the local fire department, poison control, and rescue and ambulance services. Keep it in a place where you can find it fast — like on the refrigerator door.
  4. Create a go-kit.Pack a sturdy, easy-to-carry container, such as a backpack or a suitcase on wheels, and keep it in an accessible place. To find a list of what it should include, go toready.gov/kit.
  5. Turn off.Know how to shut off valves for gas, oil, water and your home’s main electrical supply. Put tags on these valves so you can find them quickly, but have a professional turn them back on again, the Federal Emergency Management Agency warns.
  6. Have food and water handy.Store three days’ worth of nonperishable food for each family member, plus a gallon of water daily per person for drinking and sanitation. Canned food, peanut butter and energy bars are all good. Important: Don’t forget a can opener.
  7. Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both.
  8. Flashlight and extra batteries.
  9. First aid kit.
  10. Whistle to signal for help.
  11. Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place.
  12. Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
  13. Wrench or pliers toturn off utilities.
  14. A Swiss Army type knife containing many different tools.
  15. Manual can opener for food.
  16. Local maps.
  17. Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger.
  18. A small tent to sleep outside if your house becomes unsafe.
  19. Plastic ponchos (available at most dollar stores).
  20. Extra cash in case ATMs are inaccessible.

Big Data, Game Theory and Lifehacking

In order to become a successful lifehacker you have to merge hack thinking with Applied Game Thinking.

news-1511502__180

A lifehack is an old concept refitted with a new name – a strategy or technique adopted in order to manage one’s time and daily activities in a more efficient way. Essentially it is a merging of systematic thrift and frugality merged with time management and priority planning. Each hack is like a chess moves towards solving a problem.

 

king-1745093__180

Applied Game Thinking, is a system of strategizing to maximize one’s potential at the lowest possible cost. These game strategies are often created as a response to a competitive situation where a “player” in the game of life is faced with complex challenges, problems, obstacles and constraints (CPOC) Applied Game Thinking is a strongly influenced and loosely applied take on Game Theory which has garnered researchers over a dozen Noble Prizes. When you are able to merge lifehacks with applied game thinking as a foundation you will be able to troubleshoot virtually any challenge.

   In the end you will save, money, save time and create greater happiness.

 

Here is a ”Big Data” Hack:

 

big-data-1084656__180

The more effective you are at gathering information and trading it for non-cash resources like influence, or time,  the less cash you need to spend in order to get the things you need. The hack here is to create and apply a simple but effective system for gathering, organizing, and using information – essentially asking the right questions, of the right people at the right time!

Here is a simple Lifehack you can use while you figure out how you have been sabotaging yourself:

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

A Chef’s Kitchen Hack: Save Money on Expensive Bread Crumbs:

  • When you buy a loaf of whole grain bread (the best kind nutritionally), or bake your own bread, take few slices, let them get dried out until they are hard.
  • Put in a blender or food processor (or pulverize with a hammer if you are that low-tech).
  • Add garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, salt or low sodium Vegit powder.
