M = Me, A = Adam

M: Adam, are you hungry?

A: What kind of food we have?

M: I asked only if you’re hungry.

A: But what kind of food we have?

M: I didn’t prepare lunch yet. I just want to know if you’re hungry.

A: I’m going downstairs to see what food we have.

M: Adam, wait. I prepared nothing yet. I asked whether you’re hungry, because if not, I’ll cook something later.

A: I do not know if I’m hungry, maybe yes, maybe not.

M: Grrr. Adam if you’ll find out what’s for lunch, you’ll know whether you’re hungry or not?

A: Yes

M: It means only that you are hungry for what you like and if you don’t like some kind of food very much you are not hungry now?

A: Yes

M: Adam, I’m curious, for what are you hungry 🙂

A: Strawberry cereal with milk and coffee grain (polish grain beverage)

M: Phew, it’s cool. The whole pasta with spinach is for me;-)

A: Woooooooooow, Paaaaastaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!!! I want strawberry cereal with milk, grain coffee and pasta.

M: If you eat my pasta, what with me;-)?

A: You will be hungry

M: Eeeeeeeeeeee, I do not want to be hungry.

A: Well, eventually you can eat pasta (more than I will eat).

Fortunately, the pasta was enough for me and Adam. My son also ate strawberry cereal with milk and drank his grain coffee.

I found this recipe several years ago on one of vegetarian forum

We need:

  • 2 cups millet
  • water
  •  about 2 lb potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • little wholemeal flour (you can also use bread crumbs)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oil

Rinse millet in cold water (using mesh strainer). Put into a pot, pour 4 cups water and cook slowly until grain will be soft and you will not see water in a pot. Boil the potatoes and puree, chop onions and saute. Combine all ingredients together, add a little oil, salt and pepper. Shape into patties and coat in flour. Bake at 350 F until golden brown on both sides. Of course you can fry, add the herbs and spices – whatever You like.

Potato is a perennial belonging to the nightshade family. Beginning of its history to be found in the Andes, where it was domesticated about 8,000 years ago. Potatoes were brought to Europe by conquistadors who in the thirties of the sixteenth century fought for Peru. Potatoes are one of the world’s most important foods today. According to USDA figures, Americans eat about a potato a day. One in every three restaurants meals includes potatoes.


  • Sweet taste
  • Mild diuretic effect
  • Contains large amounts of carbohydrates present in the form of sugars
  • Reduce inflammations (except in some arthritic conditions)
  • Source of complex carbohydrates
  • Has a 2% protein
  • Contains vitamins

Potatoes juice has antibiotic properties, helps lower blood pressure, and treats stomach and duodenal ulcers. It is an excellent source of vitamin C, enzymes and minerals, also supports the creation of beneficial intestinal flora. Just beneath the skin there are significant amounts of manganese, chromium, selenium and molybdenum.

1 cup baked potato with skin contains 133 calories and:

  • Vitamin C – 15.74 mg
  • Vitamin B6 – 0.42 mg
  • Copper – 0.37 mg
  • Potassium – 509.96 mg
  • Manganese – 0.28 mg
  • Tryptophan – 0.04 g
  • Dietary fiber – 2.93 g

From 10 to 50% of a potato’s potassium may be lost during boiling; steaming, baking, and frying do not significantly reduce the potassium.


don’t eat potatoes  with sprouts (“eyes”) or any green flesh or skin; thet contain the poisonous alkaloid solanine.
