Do you like cooking? What can you cook?

Food is the physical basis of life. If we do not eat we will die quite soon. Breatharians think we do not need food. Have you ever heard of breatharians? What do you think of breatharianism? Is it really possible? Tell us what you think. Answer the question orally and then write your answer at the bottom of this page in the “comments” section.

What do you think of breatharianism? What do you think of it?

It is important to eat and it is important to be able to prepare nutritious food that is tasty. Tasty food stimulates the appetite.

Do you have a problem with eating? Do you lack appetite sometimes? When you are unhappy, do you lose your appetite? Do you have any advice for people who lack appetite?

My name is Keiko. I am Japanese. I am interested in learning how to cook different types of food. I am mostly interested in cakes and baking.

I can make sushi. I like observing how different types of food suit different seasons. I don’t like spicy food. I eat mostly seafood and vegetable or tofu dishes. I also enjoy eating different types of cakes with tea. I like both green tea and tea with milk.

    3-cups chicken (Chinese traditional dish)
    material: Some giner&garlic, chicken, rice wine, soy sauce, and brasi.
    Procedures: Heat up the seasame, garlic and ginger until smell good, then you put in the chicken which you cut to chunk. You should fry continuously till the chicken is done.Now you add rice wine and soy sauce. Finally, the sauce will dry. It’s ok to place the dish on table.

    This is what I practice term, If you intersted that you can search on web by urself.
    Happy sharing ^^

      Your recipe seems to be very yummy. I have a suggestion. You can add one tablespoon of sesame oil. It would taste delicious.

    Hello,
    I like to cook desserts. I like de bake cakes and prepare sweets things.

  11. Deise says:

    I’ve never heard of breatharianism until now, so I think is impossible to live following this stile of life. You can change some itens of your alimentation, like not to eat red meat, or not eat nothing of meat. But you can’t leave withot food. I agree that we shold decrease the quantity of food that ingest for day, but stop eat it is not advisble.

  12. Deise says:

    I don’t over-eat when I’m unhappy. I stop to eat. We never be happy wilh our weight. We are always looking ate the mirror and saying that we need to lose some weight or to gain in this or that part of the body. In particular I want to lose some Kilos.
