Funny Serious Things I hate about eating and eating habits:


funny serious dra martha castro tijuana los angeles america mexico


My funny serious but true things I don’t like about eating:


  1. I hate that I have to count my calories mostly all the time so I don´t gain weight.

  2. I would love to eat  beef medallions or a big chunk of steak everyday without worrying that if I would clog my arteries with triglycerides and…..oh no!

  3. Cooking everyday? Yup, gets awfully tiring doesn’t it, especially when I have hundreds of other things to do during the day.

  4. I over eat one day, then I feel guilty

  5. Spilling food on my new blouse or dress.

  6. When I cannot control myself and have double servings, my belly feels pretty bad. Yes, I hate this feeling and then the guilt…sucks!

  7. I hate when people eat with an open mouth and make noises…it is gross!

  8. I can’t stand to eat with people who  don’t have manners at the table.

  9. I don’t like it when people want to impose their eating preferences on me: are you a vegan? I am not. Vegans  have this annoying way of preaching their beliefs upon others, it’s my choice and you can’t expect everyone to go vegan.

  10. Gluten in my food.

  11. GMO food…ugh!

  12. Having to unbutton my button/s after eating.

  13. Heartburn anyone?

  14. The food delivery people take too long…I lost my appetite by then.

  15. Oh, I hate eating alone.

2 Vegetable Recipes that don’t Taste Like Vegetables

Vegetable Recipes That Don’t Taste Like Vegetables


2 Vegetable Recipes that don't Taste Like Vegetables 1


There’s so many diets out there, I can’t keep track anymore! Who’s to know what’s the right way to eat?


No grains? Low carb? No meat? Mainly meat? 


However, the one thing all diets seem to have in common is that greens, salads and natural produce are good. 


They’re nutrient dense, they fill you up will relatively little calories, and they keep your body’s intestines functioning properly.


So to help, I’ve assembled a few recipes that claim to make veggies not taste like veggies.  I have tried these recipes and they look good and taste delicious!


Carrot Fries


These things look pretty good! It’s seriously just carrots with olive oil, salt, and pepper. And they’re baked instead of fried.

Mashed Cauliflowers 


Instead of mashed potatoes, have mashed cauliflower. The texture, color, and (hopefully) taste of mashed cauliflower is pretty close to mashed potatoes.

potato salad dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico


Potato Salad Recipe Ingredients:


Approx 2 pounds small potatoes or 5 medium russets
eggs, hard boiled
diced onion
chopped celery
yellow mustard (hot dog/ball park type)
black pepper
ground (dry) mustard
dill (fresh or dry, same amount)
bacon cooked to crisp


potato salad dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico




Cut the potatoes into chunks and cook with the skins on in boiling water seasoned with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. While the potatoes are boiling, hard-boil two eggs and dice the celery and onions.


When the potatoes are fork-tender, drain them into a colander and cool them to room temp. Dice the potatoes into bite-size pieces into a large bowl, leaving several of the potatoes with the skins on for a rustic feel.

When the eggs are hard-boiled and cooled, dice them as well, adding them to the bowl.


Fold in the mayonnaise (the amount listed is correct), dill, pepper, mustard, ground mustard and a small sprinkle of salt.

Last stir in the bacon and vigorously blend the potato salad with a spoon giving it a good, hard stir to smash some of the potatoes.

If there are too many chunks, use the side of your spoon to break them up. Once it’s completely blended, taste and if you like, add a bit more salt. Garnish with dill and chill it for at least an hour or two before serving.

5 Crazy Diets That Make You Lose Weight … or Not … LOL Have Fun! – Part #1

crazy diets dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico

There is no great secret to lose weight. Small portions, healthy delicious meals and daily physical activity, in other words: avoid sedentarism.


We all know that, right? But many people want that “miracle” diet that is going to make us lose a ton of pounds/kilograms in 5 or 10 days and never gain it -the weight- back! 


So, to have some fun, I have searched on the web for some crazy diets that people do. Some of them are really outrageously funny!


NOTE: I advice you NOT to follow any of these diets. I do not recommend them since they are not healthy and do not follow serious medical protocol research. This post is just for our weekend amusement.




1. The Baby Food Diet

It replaces few of your food items with baby food (also means you poop like a baby). This one might seem easy, but trust me it’s like giving the taste of hell to your tongue. Having boiled, pureed veggies for 10 days without salt or any other spices can be a real tough task to perform. The things people do to lose weight!

2. The Beer and Sausage Diet


Call this the Tailgater’s Diet. Evo Terra, 44, an online exec in Tempe, Arizona, dropped from 195 to 177 pounds in 30 days consuming an average of about 1,500 calories a day—mostly from high-quality sausage and craft ale.

3. Miracle Diet

For this diet, one must consume only fruits for 2 days minimum. Also known as the Hollywood diet, this diet is all about making your body run on fruits or fruit juice for a span of 48 hours, minimum.

4. The Starbucks Diet


Stealing Jared’s strategy, Christine Hall, 66, a librarian from Alexandria, Virginia, lost more than 75 pounds over two years by eating only at Starbucks and sticking to about a 1,000-calorie per day diet. “Over time, scanning the calorie data helped me adjust my portion sizes,” she says.

5. The Eggs and Dessert Diet

You can have your cake and lose your gut too, a recent Tel Aviv University study found. People on 1,600 calories a day who ate a carb-and protein-rich breakfast that also included a dessert lost the same amount of weight (an average of 30 pounds over 4 months) as people on a low-carb diet (and no dessert).

Exotic Food and Flowers

Flowers are so beautiful, they look gorgeous in their nature habitat, in our homes. Flowers are given to show love, passion, compassion, celebration, happiness. But flowers are much more than that. Lots of flowers are edible, like these common petunias!


exotic food dr martha castro noriega tijuana


Edible flowers is a trend in gastronomy, and they range from the small and delicate, intended to give just a hint of flavour, to a mouthful, without dominating a dish. Those varieties include marguerites, fuchsias and tagetes (a member of the sunflower family), large and muscular enough in flavour to elbow the cutlet right off your plate.

Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad – P #392

Chicken Recipe


chicken recipe dr martha castro noriega tijuana


Skinless, boneless chicken thighs are meatier, quicker to cook, and surprisingly healthier than you might think. They’re also budget friendly and less expensive than breasts. It definitely saves you money and adds a delicious flavor to your meal.


chicken recipe enjoy dra martha castro tijuana


Chicken thighs are the most delicious alternative. Marinate them so they can soak up flavor, grill for a smoky crispness, or coat in crumbs and pan fry for a lighter “fried” chicken. 


1 1/2 lb. yellow new potatoes (about 25)

Kosher salt and pepper

medium chicken thighs

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

1 tbsp. prepared horseradish

scallions, finely chopped

1 tbsp. tarragon, chopped

small radishes, thinly sliced

1/4 c. flat-leaf parsley, chopped


Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad - P #392 4

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover, then bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, season chicken with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and place in a large, heavy skillet, skin side down. Brush with mustard and place a piece of foil on top. Place a second skillet on top of chicken and put heavy cans in skillet (the contents won’t cook) to weigh it down (this will flatten chicken so it cooks up evenly and extra-crisp). Cook on medium until skin is deep brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip chicken and cook, uncovered, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and horseradish; stir in scallions and tarragon. Halve potatoes (or quarter if large); toss with vinaigrette, then radishes.
  4. Fold parsley into potato salad and serve with chicken.
