For all others, let's f*cking do this!
I received the most wonderful, in-your-face cookbook from a good friend this week. This video explains the book quite beautifully:

What the FUCK is this?
This is a fucking wake-up call. This is for that section of the grocery store that you avoid. This for drive-thru lines so long that they block traffic. This is for ketchup and pizza qualifying as fucking vegetables.
This is for everyone who wants to do better but gets lost in the bullshit.
-Thug Kitchen cookbook
- On reading recipes completely before starting to cook: "READ THE GODDAMN RECIPE...Nothing is worse than getting to a crucial point in a recipe and realizing that the next thing you need is dirty in the sink...Don't just glance at a recipe and assume you've got that shit."
- On substituting ingredients in a recipe: "We offer ideas for substitutions in can't you can't find one of the ingredients or don't want to all the way to the store for just one fucking item...Feel free to try and mix shit up on your own, but use some goddamn sense. Out of tomato sauce? Not problem, just...PUT THE FUCKING KETCHUP BACK. NO. NOT THE SAME THING...Like we were saying, just throw some diced tomatoes in a blender."
- On basic tools to have in the kitchen: "Who needs an avocado slicer? A person without any goddamn sense, that's who. Stick to this basic list [on the page in the book] and you'll be set for almost anything"
I've only had time to test out a couple recipes, but so far so delicious! I the best part is I don't feel bad eating any of it because it's all healthy. They have awesome recipes for breakfast, salads, sandwiches, soups, mini-meals, snacks, dinners, and dessert - they cover all the eating occasion bases.
