ekovana stackable stainless steel pressure cooker steamer insert pans

I find these stackable insert pans for the instant pot, quite handy. While reading the reviews I noticed references to pot within a pot and did not have to search very hard to find these. Appreciated is the added dimension these stackable pans provide.

The dish pictured above is 1/4 cup Country Choice Organic Steel Cut Irish Style Oats, 1/4 cup Viva Naturals Organic Quinoa, 100% Royal Bolivian Whole Grain, 1/4 tsp of Mommy knows best Pure Stevia Powder Extract Sweetener, 1/4 tsp of coarse sea salt, and a 1/4 tsp of McCormick Ground Cinnamon.

The steel cut oats and quinoa cooked as the eggs boiled in the stacked pans for 35 min. The separation allowed me boiled eggs instead of breaking them into the quinoa as I normally would do without steel cut oats or stackable pans. I tyically use sea salt, pepper, and garlic when breaking eggs directly into quinoa.

This dish adds appoximately 39 grams of protein to my intake today at a cost of 687 calories.

Many are fascinated and impressed with what amounts to no more than the squandering of vast quantities of resources to irrationally deify and bury rich people. However, the valuable lesson of the ancient Egyptians was their mastery of the science and agriculture which ultimately afforded them their immortalized foolishness.

Similarly women are often appreciated for alluring femininity while the terrifyingly powerful abilities instinctually conferred by motherhood often go unappreciated.

Women's ability to multitask can gestate and raise multiple charges to maturity. Women's two way communication with speechless infants via body language is also hardwired. This later ability means it is extremely difficult to lie to your significant other because when one lies their body language does not match their words.

Yes, mothers do have eyes in the back of their heads which are facilitated by a far greater peripheral vision than men possess. Women can look straight ahead while checking a man out without any thoughts of ever getting caught. My inherit tunnel vision envies this. The success of these abilities is clearly evident in the viral spread of humanity over the entire planet.

Just body language skill and the ability to multitask rings around men has me wondering why most world leaders are not female. Men's mere physical strength advantage does not account for this anomaly and playing silly games with projectiles hardly seems a noteworthy evolutionary event to replace the pragmatic hunting game advantage conferred by tunnel vision.

Perhaps ruling by proxy is the far safer and wise choice. Perhaps women instinctually don't care to subjugate their more critical mission of continually spreading the human species over the earth and possibly even space. Whatever their reasons I am happy to be an old man who has gained some modicum of libido control.
