Why cube? I was gonna grate them, along with a large yellow or white onion, mix that all together, throw in some minced garlic and an egg to bind it all together, then fry it. bacon fat would be nice but then id bust all my macros, olive oil cooking spray will have to do

Fwiw, a slice of bacon had only 2-3 grams of fat. Do you have a food processor? The wheel attachment makes quick work of shredding.

Also, throw in some cinnamon.

Truth be told I also don't eat the pig ; )

Bit of cinnamon sounds like it would be good.

Question for all you, I feel like I don't hit my hamstrings enough, or at all really. So i'm going to incorporate straight legged deads on squat days.

I tried doing them today just to get a feel, is my lower back supposed to curve a little bit, I mean it's kind of impossible to do the movement without that happening I feel like, also how high of a platform should I be standing on?

Lower back rounding is expected and fine in a SLDL. Just make sure you brace and don't round more during the pull than when you do at the start. I do them off a 45 pound plate, so maybe 2" elevated.

I think a SLDL is more of a lower back exercise than hamstring. It will hit the hamstrings hard but it feels like the rounded back take some pressure off the hams and move it to the lower back. In my exp, an arched back places more stress on the hamstrings, so if you're only concerned with building the hams, good mornings or RDLs might work better.

I have this weird paranoia that RDL will exacerbate my APT. Good mornings are a solid idea, I used to do this, but stopped for some reason.

Which way does it curve? Your spine should be neutral to slightly arched. No reason for it to be rounded at all as you will have to drop the weight significantly from regular deads.
