The Spiciest Chili Peppers in the World!

Hello!

TGIF!

(Thank God It's Friday)

In the last two episodes, I have talked about "Ghost Chilies"...  So I decided to make a blog post about "The Hottest Chili Spice Set on Earth!"



I LOVE spicy food...  Maybe too much! 笑

My friend is from San Francisco, and he bought me this chili set while he was visiting his hometown.

To be honest, I was afraid to try it!  I kept it in my refridgerator for months.  Then about one month ago, I finally tried the "Ghost Chilies".

The Ghost Chilies are the least spicy of the three.  Here you can see how spicy they are compared to other chilies.



It was super spicy!  You only need to use a little bit.  I have been eating the Ghost Chilies for about one month, but still I have only used about half.



The Ghost chilies have a really nice smoky flavor too.  I was surprised that the taste wasn't just pure spicy.

After the Ghost Chilies are finished I'll try the...

....SCORPION CHILIES!!!

Then if that doesn't kill me, I'll try the...

...REAPER CHILIES!!!!!!!



Surely I'll be dead or in a coma (昏睡状態) after that! 笑

 

If, IF! If you are a true 黒帯 Spice Master, and you have a chance, try the spiciest chili peppers!

But be careful!  ...And don't touch the chilis with your fingers.

 

Spicy Chilis!  Yeah!

[ワンポイント] I doubt it! (I betの反対な表現)

Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Yoshi and I recorded two episodes on the weekend.  On Sunday we released "Strange News" (Big Baby Yoshi 笑), and we will release ep103 this Thursday at 10:00am.  Actually, I was reeeeeally tired when we recorded it.  It's not super 元気, but maybe it will be interesting...  We talked about the education system in Japan vs Canada...  多分Borrrrrring〜♪って思う人もいるかも知れないけど、まぁ  よろしくお願いします m(_ _)m 笑

Annnnnnyway, let's take a look at another “One-point English” lesson(日本語の説明付き!), from Dave (デイブ).  If you want more, please check out his website!  He posts something new everyday.

I doubt...


この間「I bet...」について話しました。「I bet...」は自信がいっぱいの「I think...」で、今日は「I bet...」の反対の表現について話したいです。「I bet...」の反対は上のタイトルの「I doubt...」と言う表現なんです。「I doubt...」は「I don't think...」の強いバージョンです。ニュアンスは「絶対〜しないと思う」に近いです。「Doubt」は元々「疑う」という意味です。


次、「He'll be late.」(彼は遅刻する)という文章で比べましょう:


肯定の極端


I bet he'll be late


I think he'll be late


I don't think he'll be late.


I doubt he'll be late.


否定の極端


例文:


A: I doubt it will rain. Let's have a picnic.


B: Are you crazy? It's January!


A: I doubt you'll pass your interview. You should start looking for another job.


B: That's not a nice thing to say.


A: Do you think she remembers my name?


B: I doubt it.


Give it a try!


That's it! (以上)

Morning smoothie! 朝のスムージー

Hello friends!

 

I haven't made a blog post about food or cooking for a long time.  Has anyone tried cooking with bacon fat, I wonder?

 

I think a lot of people are worried about health and diet.  Last time I wrote about bacon fat, so this time I'm writing about something more healthy...  Yes, definitely more healthy than bacon fat. 笑

 

Morning smoothies!

 

I don't like "dieting" because "diets" end.  Sometimes it's one week, sometimes it's one month...

I like CHANGE.  If you want to be more healthy and lose weight long-term, you have to make a change.  (食生活か運動か)

 

It's difficult to change your diet completely.  I think it is better to just change one thing, and stick to it.  For me, that was breakfast.

 

Since I decided to change (数年前から), my breakfast every weekday (平日) has been a smoothie!  It's fast, easy, and delicious!

The "base" for my morning smoothie is always lots of spinach and blueberries, and a little bit of fruit juice (100ml)

Then I add 2 or 3 more things, but change it all the time so I don't get tired of it.  Almost any combination is delicious! (飽きないように、あと色々の2-3つを入れたりする)



Here are my suggestions:

-Half a banana

-1/3 of a kiwi

-Strawberries

-Frozen mango (no added sugar)

-Frozen mixed berries

-Greek yogurt

-Soy milk

-Acai (it's good but too expensive!)

 

Just choose 2 or 3 more things, and put them in your blender!



My blender is small and not very strong, so I have to blend it for a long time...

Action shot! 笑



Now it's ready to drink!  Enjoy!  *Gulp.. Gulp.. Gulp...  Aaahhhhh Delicious!*

I love BACON, but if I eat it everyday, I might turn into a pig!

I have a smoothie every weekday for breakfast, and I think it has helped me a lot.  It is nutricious (栄養たっぷり), but very light, so sometimes I get hungry around 11:00am.  When that happens, I eat one handful of almonds or drink a cup of coffee.  No sweets or snacks!  笑




 

*Smoothie black-belt secret tip! スムージー黒帯の秘密!*

If you drink alcohol, try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder!  turmeric is reeeeeealllllllly good for you - especially your liver!  Since I started adding turmeric powder, I never have a hangover!!

 



The taste is quite strong, so be careful not to add too much - just a little everyday.

You could also add 青汁 or other healthy powders.  That's the great thing about smoothies!  You can add anything you want!

 

Smoothies!  Yeah!!
