What/where is the best steak and eggs in yunnan or China?

Go buy your beef
Buy some rendered beef tallow (Yellow oil) Really sould be soft and yellow like butter as the cattle in China are grass fed and finished. Buy beef (24 RMB 300 grams_ and eggs

Go home slice salt pepper and sear in beef fat

Let it rest why you fry eggs in same beef tallow (About 8.9 RMB a tube at C4)

Enjoy steak and eggs

PS for grass products price are like USA grass prices
eggs are about 1 rmb so about the same a cheap eggs in USA

Here is a BBC radio talk on the Ming voyages.

The Ming Voyages

45 minutes

First broadcast:

Thursday 13 October 2011

Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the Ming Voyages. In 1405 a Chinese admiral, Zheng He, set sail with an enormous fleet of ships carrying more than 27,000 people. This was the first of seven voyages of discovery which took Zheng and his ships all over the known world, from India to the Gulf of Persia and as far as East Africa. They took Chinese goods, evidence of the might of the Ming Empire, to the people they visited; and they also returned to China with treasure from the places.

Forums > Food & Drink > Hamburger Buns In KMG?

With the rise of blood sugar problems in China are hamburger buns part of the cause or part of the solution?

Why not get bids from Dicos, McD's, Etcetera on just the meat with no bun please?

The 1421 book is a good quick read.

True or not; it is interesting to speculate What if

What if in 1421 era china sent colony after colony to north and south america and took the rich grass land and gold and silver of Inca and Aztec?

What if the Khan's had done so 300 years before?

Both era's might have found the huge grass lands of North and South Ameria a prize. Both era's courts might have seen the distance as a bad or good thing. Umm What if?

Before a knee jerk blame fat response maybe some enlightened reading?

Just for a start: Eric

The advice (Tao) from thousands of years ago that to live longer give up the grain and eat less meat is as valid today as it was then.

A new study (Nutritional Science Initiative) NuSi hopes to explore the effect of the Standard American Diet (SAD) that is 50% carbohydrate 15% protein and 35% fat with a more ketogenic approach of 5% carbohydrates and 15 % protein and 80% fat.

These types of studies should shed light on the effect to glucose levels, insulin response levels, and ketone levels that might stop and or reverse the effects of high sugar and grain diets. (Is it just the sugar (mostly fructose effect) or all glucose elevating carbohydrates and even exessive amounts of protein via gluconeogenesis?

And even all fats are not alike. I think if Ben Franklin could not eat it then we should not or at the very least be a skeptic. Modern high temperature man made soy, corn, canola, and cotton seed oils from back to the Nepoleonic era and forward need to take a back seat to lard, tallow, and for westerners butter and cream.

PS My fasting blood sugars are under 83 mg per DL and AIC below 4.5 MM so the proof is in the diet. (Mine is high fat and moderate protein with a few vegetables. Hint (No grain and no sugars)


IMO some of this type of fraud could be detected much sooner with a proactive data search. Many western canned software programs use algorythems like Benfords Law aka Digital frequency anaylysis to detect trends that can result in the early detection of fraud. Cooking the books is nothing new and when something of value and human nature come together the triangle of percieved need, percieved opportunity, and rationalization lead to fraud. There are no small frauds; only big frauds that have not had time to develope.

The USA is no exception. Look at what has happened in Detriot.

The balance is between to cost of prevention and the cost of fraud.

When looking at crops many options are open for yunnan. small scale diverse family operations can use the concepts of permaculture to include diverse crops like avocado or berry crops along with medicinal crops like arctic root (a pretty yellow flower) with a long tradition in Chinese medicine.

Aquaculture can balance the production of fruits and vegetables with fish and avoid the problems and cost of the high use of fertilizer.

Some areas can include some nuts but not a monocultute crop. A few of this, that and the other crop is better for long term family farms and local food production and food security. Take the bes of agricultural science and economics to look for long term diverse production.

When 75% of the worlds population lives in a city (Circa 2050) crops may be grown in the city and in the home or apartment. Chicken, Pig, Cow, Egg, Fish, vegetables and fruit are a possible in the city option. This can also provide work and business opportunity for those moving from the village to the city.

For a longer healthy life we can all give up the grain and eat less meat which means moderate vegetable intake with small meat/protein portions and a ketogenic portion of healthy fats.

Have you looked at the use of black soldier fly larvea grown in waste from the chickens and pigs to feed the insects to then feed the birds?
In 1776 China was the most productive farming area and can be with some new agricultural options that move away from monoculture grain production.
