Weight Loss Tip: You have probably heard the term "Net carbs", right? But do you know what it means?

In this video you will see how to locate a bamboo forest (you need to ask people, or just know where it is. Bamboo produces food all year long and therefore is an incredible food source. By utilizing bamboo you can really make a difference in your grocery bill.
Then go into the forest and find the baby bamboo, which are called bamboo shoots. These will be purple. The best bamboo shoots to harvest are the very wide, but relatively short ones. That are about 2 feet tall and 6 inches wide. You could possibly find larger ones. Some can be 7 feet or taller, which you can still use; but aren’t the best.
I also show you how to prepare three different meals with the bamboo chutes. The first is just fried with sausage, (you can also put it into any pasta this way, along with many other ways). Second I show that you can put it into your smoothies to save money on greens. And last, I use it as a main part in a salad.
Bamboo has endless uses and you can easily start incorporating it into your diet to save MONEY! You should try to be aware of any fertilizers, pesticides or pollutions near the forest; and avoid these forests. You can also plant bamboo on your own property, and with proper harvesting methods; it may not grow out of control!
