The arrival of You tube and WordPress online has cracked the gravy train that was out of reach for small business owners who couldn’t afford the radio and TV advertising budgets.
If you don’t know much about WordPress, then you will be happy to hear that it is one of the most advanced CMS software solutions the internet has seen in recent years.
What blows my mind is how easy it is to adapt WordPress to do pretty much anything you want it to be, all without the need to hire a coder or learn coding to get it up and running.
And here’s a kicker…
WordPress is completely free to use and has generated billions of dollars in new business for companies that have figured out new and exciting ways to make it even do wonders for their business.
But don’t just take my word for it…
Probably one of the most revered publishing businesses available on the market today, the new york times website which covers everything from arts, politics to money, is entirely built on WordPress CMS.
The renowned gaming maker Sony who run PlayStation customer experience community where millions of gamers & fans meet directly, found their ideal platform of choice to deliver that experience to be WordPress.
The transatlantic and global publishing powerhouse CNN predominantly use WordPress to run their multi-blog websites ranging from news personalities to Political pundits, they are all on WordPress
I could go on and on about WordPress success stories but that is not the main reason why am writing this post today.
My Goal is to demonstrate to you that there is a huge potential in utilizing WordPress to Monetize Youtube traffic in a way that fits around your online activities.
In short, When you know what to do on youtube, WordPress makes making money on Youtube easy!
There is a tonne of ways to earn money on Youtube, you just have to be open to ideas that you probably haven’t even thought of doing before.
Many people assume that the only Youtube monetization available is slapping Adsense on your youtube and hope for plenty of eye balls which then translate into a few cents and dollars.
Yes, I get paid AdSense for all my videos available on youtube, however, my biggest Youtube monetization is actually services and selling products.
If you are wondering how to monetize youtube with holidays or travel packages, here’s how I have been making a cool living selling holidays and travel packages all with Youtube traffic.
Ever heard of hunting holidays?
In case you didn’t know, game hunting is a huge niche market and when you know how to make Youtube work with WordPress you will be surprised with how monetizing youtube videos could really turn things around for you in as little as 30- 60 days.
With almost 1.5 million subscribers and 2 million Youtube views, this Iraqi Veteran is a real magnet for dollars.
The above Video views and subscriber numbers may not mean much for many skeptics, and I get it! Knowing that Self-reported data may not be an ideal yard stick of measure to determine whether someone who spent time scoffing down hog hunting videos was an ideal customer for a hunting holiday in Texas.
But here’s my arguement..
Similarly to pet videos which have a bona fide psychological benefit for people who live far from therapy pet options or are allergic to animals, hog hunting videos are not that different as research data points out that we tend to remember emotional experiences more accurately than non-emotional experiences.
Armed with that information, coupled with a clear understanding of what all these cat videos are doing to us, am led to believe that People who watch hog hunting on Youtube are super fans of hunting holidays.
The next step is to deploy our three step system which involves:
The formula behind this system takes a bit of hard work. But it’s not complicated. And it’s one of the fastest ways I’ve discovered to quickly monetize Youtube , grow your list and leverage monetisation Youtube offers freely.
If you want to get access to this strategy (including a real-life case study of Our popular 30 DAY Express 10K Technique in action), just click the download button below, enter your email address below and I’ll send it over.
In a nutshell, we use youtube videos for targeting, and driving traffic to our WordPress Funnel, but there is data science behind the whole process simply because we understand too well that Youtube is only good for Video, it lacks data which we can really interpret into actionable pieces of content.
With that in mind, there is no FREE source of nicely diced data ready to consume than what Facebook provides.
To say the least, You tube and Facebook is a goldmine when put to good use…
What do Imean?
With Facebook, we are able to drill down our audiences to determine metrics that work in any niche.
We drill down into the best age to target for particular packages, budgets, and spending power. We are also able to tailor best times of the day to post, the best day of the week to post and what type of content is most popular. You can not do this on youtube alone.
And here’s why we do it…
We understand that the people we serve have no patience or time to waste, if they go on youtube, they are there for two reasons only:
1 They are looking for Information.
2 They are looking for Entertainment
And they want their needs to be met right there, right now. As a result, our messaging needs to be in tune with our user’s specific problems.
So we provide viable solutions and give them maximum bang for their buck in terms of information provided and personal appeal. In other words, we know that our fans don’t want to feel like they are being spoken at.
Instead, we make them feel like rock stars, they want to feel valued as an important part of a community.

Contrary to popular belief Bubble Butts are definitely not your average common big asses you see on the high street. Bubble Butts are round like a globe, usually, complement a slender/slim body, they are very tight and firm unlike the ones on fat asses.
Bubble butts are great and of course, a turn on for many who love twerking.
Despite the common beliefs, if you have hip dips on your figure, it is not a sign that you have some sort of disparity in body proportion or somewhat a freak.
In fact, hip dips are a natural way in which your hip bones are aligned and as it happens that some women have a wider pelvis hip bones, their hip dips are much more visible than others.
The indentation which we call hip dents actually is known as the ‘trochanteric depression’ in anatomical terminology.
If you have very visible violin hips, you’re not a freak, and it’s not a deformity, it can mean there is a bit of a dip between your hip bones and where your thigh bone (femur) starts.
In many cases, if you have muffin top bottom which is commonly also known as the love handles, your dip hip is likely to show than those with medium dipped hips.
Some people call hip dip pelvis as:
Whether you’re feeling insecure about your bubble butt curves or own them like others who have hated hip dips for years, there is a slew of reasons why having wide hips is actually not only sexy and enviable but beneficial when it comes to fashion too.
Yes, seriously! When you take a look at some of the fabulous facts about hip dips and wide pelvis benefits, that will make you re-think the way you see hip dip preposition of your figure!
Kristi Lewton, an assistant professor in the department of anatomy and neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues at Harvard University, Hunter College and Washington University, St. Louis, has shown that this so-called “obstetric dilemma” might not be a dilemma at all.
Wide hips or dip hip come in handy during childbearing as humans give birth to very large (“ginormous!”) newborns. Unlike chimps and other nonhuman primate babies who emerge from the birth canal with room to spare, human infants must perform a complicated series of rotations to make their way into the world, and the pelvic opening is just barely big enough. If something goes wrong, the lives of both mother and baby are at risk.
As I took a deeper look into why bubble butts and violin hips or hip dips are in the spotlight, more and more young ladies chasing fashion trends are always on the lookout for ways to rock fashion trends. Take hip dips for example which are a great figure for rocking high-waisted jeans and mini skirts which lead on to uncovered more names – violin hips a common way to describe hip dips and It’s a very common feature that plastic surgeons sometimes deal with (the solution is to graft fat into the area of the dent to try and round out the shape).
Surprisingly One popular belief is that a few people mentioned that they always thought hip dipping could have been caused by wearing their underwear in the ‘dip’ location.
Seriously many women actually think of this might have been a contributing factor as well and to this day, I often find myself adjust my underwear waistband to sit on the offending muffin top that seems to insist on highlighting my hip dips. Just in case the position of the waistband can wear down that annoying bit of fat!!!
My love for food and being adventurous with taste buds has never weaned when it comes to bringing the awesomeness to the dinner table. If you find your meal times a constant fight with your little ones or a bit stale, maybe it’s time to bring in the big guns to dinner.
We probably all have the same bottles in our pantry and fridge, those multi-colored, familiar products we have known since childhood.
There’s the red squeeze bottle of ketchup, the yellow squeeze bottle of mustard, the jar of generic barbecue sauce, the tub of sour cream and the big bottle of white mayonnaise.
Even if our tastes in food have changed dramatically since our youth, chances are good we are still using the same condiments or organic, vegan versions of them.
Isn’t it a travesty that we will spend so much time and effort making a variety of veggie burgers only to put the same old ketchup, mustard or mayo on them.
Why go through all the trouble to perfect a best veggie burger recipe and yet not put that same effort and creativity into creating even better just give a twist to our condiments readily available in the pantry as well?
Call me a rebel for everything normal, but I despise routine. Unfortunately, kids, especially over five-year-olds to teens all hate dull and boring dinner routines too. So if you are struggling with making them love your vegan menu, take a new look at what you can do to make them fall in love again with everything you cook.
There is no reason we have to stick with the plain, boring versions of the past.
You wouldn’t serve pasta with the same plain tomato sauce every single time, so why serve your burgers and fries with the same old ketchup?
And if you buy condiments or make your own, why not turn those familiar flavors into eye-opening, exotic ones by simply tweaking or mixing in a few ingredients to make it palatable to your vegan beet toasted batties?
I have won the hearts of my household lifestyle by Letting our imaginations and taste buds run wild and take our condiments from boring to WOW!
If you are wondering, even possibly contemplating to give a try, here are a few ideas you can borrow and make them your very own:
You can take any prepared ketchup, whether bottled or homemade and easily turn it into a flavor-packed specialty condiment. The next time you are thinking about ketchup for your veggie burgers or fries, try one of these zesty versions.
Love Chinese Flovors?
To give your ketchup a Chinese flavor, add 2 teaspoons of Chinese 5-spice powder, 1 Tbs. soy sauce, the juice of a lime and a pinch of black pepper to one cup of ketchup. This would be perfect on Hoisin Black Bean Burgers.
Add some bold Mexican flavors to one cup of ketchup by adding 1 teaspoon each of ground cumin, ground coriander and chili powder, the juice of a lime and a tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro. Cumin is a wonderful complement to beets so this would be great on my Roasted Beet Burgers.
Crispy fries taste great with creamy curry-flavored ketchup. Just add 1 Tbs. curry powder and ¼ cup non-dairy yogurt to one cup of ketchup. This is a delicious dip for almost anything…maybe Walnut-Crusted Artichoke Hearts? Yum!
To make spicy Jerk ketchup, add 2 Tbs. jerk seasoning, the juice of a lime and 1 Tbs. pineapple juice to one cup of ketchup. If you want chunkier ketchup, use chopped fresh pineapple instead of the juice. Try this ketchup to spice up this Quinoa and White Bean Burger.
My favorite way to jazz up ketchup is by adding 2 tsp. of smoked paprika and 1 Tbs. of vegan Worcestershire sauce. It tastes rich and smoky. Balsamic vinegar can be used in place of the Worcestershire sauce if necessary. This is going directly onto my Kidney Bean-Walnut Burgers.
Dijon mustard is delicious. It’s my choice of condiment for vegan hot dogs, sausages, and many sandwiches. Adding other flavors to mustard changes it into something everyone will swear you picked up in some expensive specialty store.
For an amazing mustard, you can use as a salad dressing, combine ½ cup Dijon mustard, 2 or 3 Tbs. white wine vinegar (to taste), a pinch of curry powder and 1 Tbs. fresh chopped cilantro. Try this on your next summer salad.
If you loved the taste of honey mustard, make a vegan version by mixing ¼ cup each Dijon mustard and agave nectar, 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar and a pinch of salt. This is perfect for salads or as a dip for Crispy Tofu Nuggets.
Adding 1 tsp. of diced jalapenos and the zest and juice of a lime to ½ cup of Dijon mustard gives you a spicy sauce that’s perfect for tacos or tempeh “fish” fillets.
My favorite mustard mash-up happens by stirring 1 Tbs. prepared horseradish, 1 Tbs. of chopped fresh dill and 1 Tbs. of vegan mayo or sour cream into ½ cup Dijon mustard. I use versions of this horseradish-dill combo on my Eggplant Crunchburgers and my homemade Tempeh “Crab” Cakes.
Though I hated it as a child, vegan mayo is my favorite condiment of all. I can dip just about anything into mayo. When you make ordinary mayo, it’s a fancy aioli. Since mayo itself is bland, it’s a perfect blank canvas for so many flavors. I’ll try to select just a few to highlight here.
You can buy Sriracha-flavored mayo in the store or you can make it yourself. Just mix ½ cup mayo with ¼ cup Sriracha. If you want to sweeten it up a bit for balance, add a touch of agave or some sweet pickle relish. This would be perfect on this Vegan Humdinger Sandwich that has mostly mild flavors from the cucumber, avocado and alfalfa sprouts.
For a beautiful spring green condiment, make Chimichurri Mayo by adding fresh herbs to mayo. Puree ½ cup of your favorite herbs such as parsley, cilantro, thyme or basil with one garlic clove and a cup of mayo. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread some on this Tempeh Tomato Herb Sandwich for an amazing meal.
For an Asian twist, mix 2 Tbs. white miso with 1 cup of mayo. Add 1 Tbs. grated ginger, 2 tsps. agave nectar, and a dash of toasted sesame oil. This would be an amazing dipping sauce for some Daikon Fries.
I make the creamiest red pepper aioli by mixing ½ cup vegan mayo, ½ vegan sour cream, ½ cup roasted red peppers, 2 tsp. dried basil, salt, and pepper in a food processor. It’s not only delicious, it’s really pretty. It’s the perfect topping for my Fried Green Tomatoes.
I love making my own BBQ sauces and I’ve shared some recipes for them in my article, “10 Ways to Make Awesome BBQ Sauces, Rubs, and Marinades.” But if you have a bottle of store-bought BBQ sauce sitting around, you can easily doctor it up and turn it into something special for any of your barbeque dishes.
For a Cajun BBQ sauce, combine 1 cup barbecue sauce, ¼ cup bourbon and 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning in a saucepan. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Serve with these Cajun Burgers for a hot and spicy dinner.
Get a taste of Hawaii by mixing 1 cup barbecue sauce with ½ cup fresh diced pineapple, ¼ cup pineapple juice and 1-2 Tbs. brown sugar, depending on how sweet you want it. Where would I put this? Oh, on any skewered dishes or on an incredible jackfruit sandwich.
Turn your seitan or tempeh ribs into a Japanese feast by slathering them with a teriyaki barbecue sauce. Simply mix 2 Tbs. molasses and 2 Tbs. tamari or soy sauce with 1 cup of barbecue sauce. Season with 1 tsp. each minced garlic and grated fresh ginger.
If you have a bottle of hoisin sauce or Chinese barbecue sauce sitting around, make it special. Add 3 Tbs. plum vinegar, 2 Tbs. mirin or Chinese rice wine, 2 Tbs. tamari or soy sauce and 3 Tbs. agave nectar to ¼ cup of hoisin sauce. Mix well and garnish with scallion greens. Use this as a dipping sauce for my Chinese 5-Spice Potato Latkes or Veggie Dumplings.
The vegan sour cream is another blank canvas just begging to be painted on. I make my own Coconut Sour Cream but I love adding other flavors to it. Any of the recipes for mayo would work with sour cream but here are a few more ideas.
In a food processor, puree 1 avocado with ½ cup vegan sour cream, ¼ cup chopped green chiles, the juice of one lime and one garlic clove. Season with salt and pepper to taste. This is like having your sour cream and guacamole in one condiment; perfect for serving with quesadillas or nachos.
Add the juice of a lime and 2 Tbs. of chopped fresh cilantro to ½ cup of sour cream. This will taste refreshing on any Latin dish, especially tacos.
I often use vegan sour cream to make Tzatziki sauce. To one cup of sour cream, I add ½ large chopped cucumber, one clove of minced or grated garlic, the juice of half a lemon, a bit of olive oil and 1-2 tsp. of chopped dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Tzatziki sauce is the condiment of choice for falafel and chickpea burgers.
For a spicy kick, take one cup of sour cream and add in ½ of a chipotle pepper that has been seeded and finely minced. Stir in ½ tsp. of adobo sauce, 1 tsp. of agave nectar and the zest and juice of a lime. The chipotle sour cream is perfect on baked potatoes, in black bean soup or with my Spanish Potato Latkes.
As you can see, when you know the basics of different ethnic flavor profiles and spice combinations, you can incorporate them into basic condiments to make amazing toppings, dips, and sauces. With these recipes, no one will ever ask you to “hold the mayo” again. I bet you to try it!
Forget about Gordon Ramsy or Reggie Reggie source from Levi Roots, as a father my parenting skills would fall short if I did not develop my children’s taste buds.

Tasty marinades are an essential if not integral to getting flavor inside a pressed block of tofu or a bunch of vegetables.
And that’s not all…
Vegan meals are synonymous for being bland, so in an effort to easily turn them into an instant BAM! You need well sourced Dry spice rubs which will not only add spice but when you cook the food, you get a delicious crusty coating
Wanna borrow some Vegan summery Spiced meal Ideas that turned me from a bland dad in the kitchen into BAM DADDY?
For a basic spice rub, you can use on seitan, tofu, or vegetables, try this combination that is similar to the famous Chicago steak spice blend. After rubbing on the mix, let the food stand about 15 minutes before cooking. For about 1/3 cup of rub, combine 2 Tbs. dry mustard, 2 Tbs. garlic powder, 1 Tbs. black pepper, 2 tsp. smoked paprika, 2 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. dried thyme and 1 tsp. cayenne pepper.
This rub has a little more heat in it from the chile powder, but it’s not too spicy. It’s best used when you need a bolder flavor — for instance on seitan or BBQ dishes. Combine ¼ cup chile powder, 2 Tbs. paprika, 1 Tbs. dried oregano, 1 Tbs. ground cumin, 1 Tbs. dried coriander, 1 Tbs. dry mustard, 2 Tbs. brown sugar, 2 tsp. kosher salt and 1 tsp. black pepper to make about ¾ cup of spice blend. Let the rub sit on the food for 15 minutes before cooking.
The curry, cumin, coriander, mint, turmeric, and ginger in this rub make a bold and delicious spice blend for tofu, tempeh or vegetables, especially potatoes. To make about ½ cup of Indian Curry Rub, combine 3 Tbs. curry powder, 1 Tbs. kosher salt, 2 tsp. crushed red pepper, 2 tsp. ground cumin, 2 tsp. ground coriander, 1 tsp. dried mint, 1 tsp. turmeric and 1 tsp. ground ginger. Let the rub sit on the food for 15 minutes before cooking.
This is the marinade I use when I made Jerk “Chicken” with tofu or other vegan meats. This recipe makes enough marinade to serve 4. Combine ¼ cup tamari, ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, ¼ cup fresh lime juice, 2 Tbs. vegan Worcestershire sauce, 2 tsp. hot sauce, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 minced chile pepper, 1-inch grated fresh ginger, 3 Tbs. brown sugar, 2 tsp. ground allspice, 2 tsp. dried thyme, 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, ½ tsp. ground nutmeg, ½ tsp. cayenne pepper and ¼ tsp. ground cloves. Mix the ingredients well and let the tofu or vegetables marinate for at least 15-20 minutes before cooking.
When I make tofu veggie kabobs, this is my go-to marinade. It’s rich from the balsamic vinegar and just a little spicy. This recipe makes enough marinade for one block of tofu and enough vegetables to make 8 kabobs. In a bowl, combine ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth, 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbs. tamari, 1 Tbs. vegetable oil, 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. dried basil, 1 tsp. dried oregano, 1 tsp. dried thyme, 1 tsp. paprika, ½ tsp. ground black pepper, ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes and 2 minced garlic cloves. Marinate the tofu in the mixture for at least 30 minutes. Reserve a bit of the marinade and in another bowl, marinate the veggies for no longer than 10 minutes.
These Island Tofu Kabobs have tofu, seitan, and vegetables marinated in a sweet and spicy blend of orange juice, garlic, and ginger. I add pineapple to the veggies on the skewer for an added tangy tropical flavor. When the pineapple is grilled, it becomes a whole new thing. So delicious! For 8 kabobs, combine ½ cup fresh orange juice, ¼ cup agave nectar, 1 Tbs. tamari, 1 Tbs. brown rice vinegar, 3 sliced scallions, 1 Tbs. freshly grated ginger and 3 minced garlic cloves. Place your tofu or seitan in one plastic storage bag or bowl and your vegetables in a second one. Add half the marinade into each of the storage bags or bowls. Make sure all of the ingredients are covered with marinade and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cooking.
This marinade is actually a thick paste that I use to cover tofu and onions in one of my favorite Spanish recipes. It’s really fast and easy to make and it adds bold flavors to anything you put it on. This recipe makes enough to easily cover one block of tofu. In a food processor, add ½ an onion that is chopped into large pieces. Add 4 cloves of garlic to the food processor along with 1 Tbs. chile powder, 1 tsp. ground cumin, 1 tsp. ground oregano, ½ tsp. kosher salt and ¼ tsp. ground cloves. Add 1/3 cup of water and process into a smooth paste. Place the tofu or whatever you are marinating in a shallow bowl or dish and pour the marinade over it. Use a pastry brush to make sure the food is evenly covered with the chile paste on both sides. Let marinate for 30 minutes before cooking.
The BBQ sauce is really easy to make. The basic recipe involves combining a tomato base, an acid, a sweetener, and spices. Knowing the basic formula lets you mix and match ingredients to create new and exciting BBQ sauces. You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients if you prefer your BBQ sauce more tomato-y, more vinegary, sweeter, or spicier. My basic BBQ Sauce recipe is a bit more sweet than spicy, and I add some orange juice for a bright fruity note. In a saucepan, combine 2 cups ketchup, 1 ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, ¾ cup maple syrup, the zest and juice of ½ orange, 3 minced garlic cloves and 1 tsp. black pepper. Stir and heat over medium heat until it comes to a bubble. Lower the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes until it thickens.
When I want a BBQ sauce that has a lot more kick and richer, deeper flavors, I go for West African Style, Nigerian food flavoring in particular have a huge influence on this one that gets extra heat from red onions and chiles. Using balsamic vinegar in addition to apple cider vinegar adds a rich, syrupy flavor that is just incredible. In a small saucepan, combine 1 ½ cups ketchup, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, ¾ cup balsamic vinegar, ¾ cup maple syrup, 2 Tbs. brown sugar, 1 minced red onion, 2 minced garlic cloves and 1 Serrano chile that has been seeded (if you want less heat) and minced. Stir and let simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes until the sauce thickens.
For Asian barbecue dishes, you can quickly whip up this sauce, which is sweet, salty, thick, and tangy. Combine ½ cup hoisin sauce, ½ cup mirin or sherry, ½ cup ketchup, 2 Tbs. minced ginger, 2 Tbs. brown rice vinegar, 1 Tbs. agave nectar, 2 tsp. Sriracha (or more to your liking), 1 minced garlic clove and ¼ tsp. of five-spice powder. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium heat, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened. It should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir the sauce occasionally.
When it comes to rubs, marinades, and sauces, these are just 10 of the infinite possibilities. Think about what flavor profiles you prefer and let your imagination run wild. Once you experience how much a rub, marinade, or sauce can boost the flavor of your dishes, you’ll love creating your own combinations and wowing everyone with your secret recipes. But you’ll share them with me, right?

A good Indian Veggie take away meal or Chinese will very much likely set you back a couple of bucks. As a matter of fact a family of four, week end dinner from your local Chinese or Indian takeaway will cost an average of £38 to £73, that’s a proper shopping for a whole week! Pssst!
Ever wondered if you could be able to brew your own ethnic storm of amazing ethnic oriented meals at home? If you fret the ideas of Chinese cooking at home, you are not alone! But there is no need to be alarmed!
You see all these different ethnic recipes might seem so classy, complicated exotic and best left to the professionals. Surprise surprise! In reality, it’s really easy to make a hearty Italian or Chinese meal yourself at home.
Many cultures use the same small amount of ingredients so often, they become a “flavor profile” for that ethnic menu. Maybe when you look at Mediterranean recipes and think that Italian food just has lots of garlic and basil? Well, fret no more…..here’s how you could easily dip your toes into ethnic culinary and save thousands of money on takeaways every year.
Yes, there is garlic but not necessarily a lot and there is so much more. Italian cooking is probably best known for its use of garlic, olive oil, and basil – the three best ingredients to make the perfect pizza. Italian seasoning blends tend to have herbs such as oregano, basil, marjoram, tarragon, and parsley in them. Southern Italian cooking is spicier than that of Northern Italian and uses more anchovies and red pepper flakes. Other flavors familiar to Italian cuisine include onions, tomatoes, artichokes, olives, lemon, fennel, rosemary, red wine vinegar, and balsamic vinegar. Vegan versions of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese will also enhance your Italian fare. Try making Ooey-Gooey Baked Ziti or Spaghetti with Vegan Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs.
Mediterranean food is some of the healthiest and most flavorful food on the planet. As in Italian food, garlic, oregano, olive oil, and tomatoes are commonly used in dishes. Greek cuisine, in particular, is known for its use of rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, and red onions. Nothing says Greek food more than the fresh citrus flavors of lemon and the tangy, salty yumminess of vegan feta cheese. Indulge in the deliciousness of Spanakopita or Spetsofai, a Greek stew with vegan sausage and peppers.
We can’t talk about cooking and not mention French cuisine. Classic French dishes usually have olive oil, garlic, basil, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, and sage or you can buy herbs de Provence which is a combination of these herbs and sometimes, lavender. Other common ingredients are tarragon, shallots, capers, and Dijon mustard. French cooking uses a lot of wine and lots of butter, so it’s a good thing there are great vegan wines and recipes for vegan butter available to us. Who doesn’t love a warm and hearty French Onion Soup? Or go classic with a Seitan and Mushroom Bourguignon.
This is my favorite type of food. I have a special fondness for anything spicy and if I had to choose my one favorite spice, it would be cumin. To me, cumin is the spice that makes food smell Spanish. Other common flavors in Spanish food are chile powder, oregano, Mexican oregano, garlic, onions, and cilantro. Make an Artichoke Paella filled with rice and veggies. All sorts of pepper and chiles are used in Latin cooking such as ancho chile, poblano peppers, jalapeños, and Serrano chiles. If you love Mexican food, then you know that common flavors include lime, hot sauce, scallions, tomato, and avocado. Try these flavors out in Chile No Carne or a Mexican Tofu Scramble.
Making your own Chinese food is easy so long as you have the basic ingredients to create those amazing sauces. Whether you are making Mandarin, Szechuan, or Cantonese food, keep the following ingredients on hand: garlic, fresh ginger, brown rice vinegar, mirin or sweet rice wine, low-sodium tamari, Hoisin sauce, toasted sesame oil, miso, agave nectar, and Sriracha hot sauce. Other common ingredients include peanuts, cashews, sesame seeds, and scallions. Enjoy these flavors in Sesame Tofu, Pomegranate Sweet and Sour Tempeh, or Dim Sum Soy Sauce Chow Mein Noodles.
The flavors of Japanese food are light and delicate. Umami adds flavor and depth. Common ingredients in Japanese cooking include miso, sake, soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, sweet rice wine, ginger, sesame seed oil, sesame seeds, and wasabi. You will love the flavors of this Soba Noodle Salad with Avocado and Mango and this Roasted Garlic, Miso and Greens Soup. And what could be more fun than learning to make your own Vegan Sushi Rolls?
Indian food is warm and exotic. There are some very bold flavors in Indian cuisine and if you have the basics, you can be making your own Indian dishes in no time. Most Indian dishes begin with by toasting the seeds of spices such as cumin, mustard, and coriander, though you can certainly use the dried versions if that’s what you have. Cardamom pods, fenugreek, fennel, and turmeric are other common spices. Garam masala is a combination of spices and everyone makes their own a different way but it usually has cumin, coriander, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, and cardamom. Garlic, fresh ginger, and onion are used as aromatics and dried chiles are often used for heat especially in Southern Indian food. Curry pastes and powders are also common in Indian cooking and they come in various types with a wide range of spice levels. Yogurt and coconut milk are often used in Indian cuisine so you will want to have some non-dairy versions handy as well. Tandoori spice blends usually contain cumin, coriander, ginger, paprika, turmeric, salt, and cayenne pepper. Try your hand at a Vegan Tofu Tikka Masala or Savory Indian Lentil Doughnuts.
My love of Thai food is fairly new to me. To be honest, the first time I tried it, all I tasted was peanut butter. Luckily, I found better places to eat it and now I love to make my own Thai food. When I want to prepare a Thai feast, I make sure to have lots of garlic, ginger, shallots, scallions, lemongrass, cilantro, and Thai basil for my herbs and aromatics. Curry paste comes in red, yellow, and green – each has its own taste and level of heat. Thai recipes usually use low-sodium tamari, rice or sweet wine vinegar, hot chili peppers, and coconut milk. One of the most distinctive flavors in Thai food usually comes from fish sauce, oyster sauce, or shrimp paste. Luckily, there are lots of recipes out there for vegan versions of these sauces. Street Pad Thai is delicious as are my Cold Rice Noodles in a Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce.
Another favorite of mine – I love Cajun food, Jamaican food, and Rastafarian food – pretty much anything with rice and spice makes me happy. The common flavors in these cuisines are onions, celery, peppers, chiles, tomatoes, scallions, and parsley. The spices of Cajun food includes cayenne, paprika, garlic, black pepper, oregano, and thyme. Jerk seasoning is made up of allspice, cinnamon, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, cumin, cloves, and black pepper. You can buy these pre-made blends or learn to make them yourself. These Cajun Burgers are amazing.
Casablanca. Bogey and Bacall. Amazing Moroccan food. The flavors of North African cuisine are ginger, sweet paprika, hot paprika, cumin, cinnamon, saffron, turmeric, cayenne, mint, and harissa. Ras El Hanout is a mixture of ground spices including cardamom, nutmeg, anise, mace, cinnamon, ginger, peppers, and turmeric. Moroccan dishes often include olives, raisins, dates, almonds, sesame seeds, and lemon. All those flavors are found in this Moroccan Grilled Eggplant, Onion, and White Bean Spread or try this Raw Moroccan Vegetable and Chickpea Stew with Spicy Orange Cauliflower Couscous. My Moroccan Tofu in a Lemon-Olive Sauce is one of our favorites.
Think about your favorite cuisine and why it’s your favorite. What are the unique flavors and combination of ingredients that you love? Once you get a feel for how spices, herbs, and other ingredients work together, you’ll be on your way to making incredible international cuisine. Maybe you can even start hosting dinner parties with a different ethnic theme each week.
I totally agree with the belief that Bill Gates is one of the world’s brightest people still alive. He also happens to be the world’s richest, while still remaining humble and giving. But the recent claims in what I personally believe that this is the works of scam artist allergies that his latest breakthrough is something unexpected.
The scammers go on to say that Bill Gates himself spent over $2.5 billion dollars and countless man hours building it. Now scam alert bells begin to ring when the scammers say…
” If it works as expected, Bill Gates would be the first person in history to single-handedly reshape our economy with his latest project – Gates Way.”
Before we go into details of what Gates Way claims to be, let me point out that I make a fairly good living out of online, and if it helps here below, is an email confirmation from Google letting me know that one of my payments out of 25 Adsense and affiliate accounts has just been paid out into my bank.
Unfortunately google terms does not allow me to publish the cheque I get here, and I won’t go into details about how you too could easily start making real money online here in this post.
But if you want to learn how Google pays me anywhere from $480 to $7,855.00 per website/Blog that I am running, just check out free training resources here. Yes… Free because all it will cost you is just a minute to sign up to an email list where your training materials are delivered every week!
There are really so many ways to make money online, often leaving us so confused,
out of focus, and down right frustrated… before we can even… START.
If you’ve ever gone down the rabbit hole and realized that you can’t seem to
see light at the end of the tunnel, you’re not alone.
And I can admittedly fully relate to many of you reading this post.
In actual fact, all you need is a proven formula to free you from this merry-go-round,
to go where you really should be – Making Money Online.
The truth is, if you can understand the 3 steps I’ll be sharing on this FREE training course on 500 ways to make money online, you can start an online business.
Let me quickly share with you from the beginning to continue the scam story am sharing… here they are…
The most misunderstood part is this – you need not be a writer or record videos to do this!
The content need not be yours. The visitors want content, but they didn’t say they want your content. You could be sharing or curating someone’s content to make money online.
I mean, if you can write, record, or design content, that’s great, but if not… no problem. You can still start a website and launch your online business.
Once your website is up, drive traffic to it.
There are so many ways to do it that are free… from social media to getting rank from search engines aka Google.com.
I started with nothing! so I promoted other people’s programs like this one here==> You will promote something on your website to generate income. If you have nothing of your own to sell, you can just promote affiliate programs from ClickBank.com, CJ.com, LinkShare.com, Amazon Associate Program, etc. to make amazing commissions.
Let’s get some facts straight. The top 1% currently is hoarding 241$ trillion dollars, which is enough to give every single person on earth a cool 6 figure check of $103,200. And since most of this wealth is being traded by Wall Street Daily, theoretically it can all be taken back by outsmarting the Wall Street traders.
According to the scammer’s claims, Bill Gates did just that – he built a computer code that outsmarts any human trader on earth.
The TED Talks video with Gates that you can see on the GatesWay website is real, Gates really spoke at TED. But his original speech was about viruses and how you could apply simple internet security software available on the market to secure your home internet user experience. And scammers used that video to replace his voice with somebody else who speaks about a binary options software.
They also edited the video and put the GatesWay logo on the background instead of the original.
According to the presentation, GatesWay has a 77% win rate, so it should make you at least $1,455 per day. For free, because the program is free. But wait a second…
The truth is that GatesWay is a very insolent scam because it abuses not only binary options but also Bill Gate’s identity.
They claim that It’s an algorithm, designed to take from the top 1% wealthy people and redistribute the money back to regular people.
Allegedly this algorithm literally beats the stock market with an accuracy of 75%, which means you will be winning 3 trades out of 4 but this is not entirely true.
The Scammers also says if you find yourself wondering, what will keep the Wall Street from using this software and making us even poorer? They have an answer to that too! And their answer is simple – this software is hard coded to only work with Binary Options trading platforms, which means the trades are limited to 250$ per trade.
Wall Street is trading trillions, so 250$ just isn’t going to cut it for them. However, for regular people this is huge! At the moment software isn’t released yet but as Bill Gates team demonstrated to us – it already works and generates around $2,000 – $4,000 profits a day per trading account!
If the software goes live, regular people will slowly drain the pile of cash that is hoarded by top 1%. Sure the transition will be slow but actually, it’s better this way, because if wealth was redistributed in short period of time, the economy would crash worldwide. So in this case, slower is better.
According to an interview with Michael Yount, project manager of Gates Way, here is what he got to say about Bill Gates mind-blowing binary options trading software.
Does this software really work? “Yes. It has the potential to predict winning trades with 90% accuracy, but we actually made it slightly dumber to keep it at around 75%. This will help with server stability issues since it requires way less computing power.”
When will it go live? “Software is fully functioning already and we will welcome our first members very, very soon. Right now we are adding finishing touches and triple checking our code encryption.”
Triple checking code encryption? “Yes. The actual algorithms must be hidden so no one can actually see how the software works. We are taking encryption very seriously, because if the source code is leaked or decrypted, someone could backward engineer it and plug it into a trading platform with unlimited trade size, allowing the person to rob the whole world.”
What if everyone in the world started using this software? There isn’t enough money in the world to give 7 billion people $2,000 – $4,000 per day. “This is a very good question and we have the answer! Our software is only 75% effective against Wall Street (or other human traders), but if everyone is using it, software needs to compete against itself and it can’t beat itself. In this case, its efficiency evens out to just 50%. So no one will be winning on the large scale. Basically, the efficiency of our software drops by 1% for every 200 million people who are using it.”
So the first ones to jump on this will make more money? “We wouldn’t say that, no. Sure, the winning rate will be higher for first people to start using it, but on the larger scale and with time it will even-out the wealth fairly well.”
What is your vision? What do you wish to accomplish with this? “We believe that in 5 years majority of the worlds population will start using software, and in 10 years the wealth gap will be completely blurred. This will end the poverty, hunger, and even wars. “
Is the software free? “Yes. The software is free and this is our gift to the world. However, you do need to fund the trading account to get started. The minimum investment we recommend is 250$. After countless tests, we determined that 250$ is the minimum amount of money that is guaranteed to reach $2,000 – $4,000 profits per day fast.”
After the interview, Bill Gates team demonstrated the software in action. We were shocked. After small investment of $250, it actually won 84 trades out of 100, resulting in profits of $2,583.91. We can’t wait for the software to go live. Bill Gates and his team has promised that CNN will be the first to know, so keep your eyes open.
Absolutely not! To save your time and grief, look for well established and regulated binary options trading platforms available online. If your dream is to just make money online,have freedom of time and location, then there are many ways to make that dream possible with little to no money risks associated with these get rich quick schemes from Gates way.
