Food Glorious Food

Chicken = campylobacter
eggs = salmonella
beef = mad cow disease or horse
Soft cheese = listeria
fresh greens = E Coli

Stick to tinned stuff and the occasional baked potato. Maybe fish and chips on a Friday.
Sir Bulldog Craggwood

We all need to be fussier about our food, what it is, where it came from, how it's been treated and transported, how natural and fresh it is and just eat less of it - it's the future.

Time to say goodbye to at least 25% of the calories most of us chomp through anyway.

Get nutrition sorted out and we'd have no NHS waiting lists and immeasurable benefits to public health

Who the fuck wants to eat some blind chicken that's never seen sunlight from Thailand?

I don't think it makes any difference where the chickens come from. British farmers can legally keep 20 chickens per sq metre.

I spotted one of those pesky campylobacters scurrying across the work surface in the kitchen. Managed to swat the little blighter before it contaminated anything.

You omitted - Tinned/sealed stuff - potential for Clostridium botulinum (Botulism).

Reheated rice - Bacillus cereus (think barbecue salad accompaniments)

Meat products (e.g. burgers esp undercooked) Vtec E coli 0157.

Don't compromise with your food - it is too important. (but personally, I always have soft boiled eggs and runny yolk fried eggs). But I have meat well done especially comminuted products..

if it feels wrong/ tastes wrong or you are not sure of its probity, don't eat it.

Learn about the food safety rules you can control in the house e.g. temp control, use by dates, basic hygiene, cross contamination etc. It may save your life or that of those you love.

But do not panic.

There are plenty of reliable wholesome foodstuffs about and food poisoning incidents are generally rare and localised due to poor handling practises.

Food poisoning incidents can usually be avoided by following the rules.  I have  on a number of times rejected food served in eating establishments because I felt it was not served in line with Food Hygiene regulations - but always discreetly and politely.

Only once have I left a restaurant due to food safety issues with my meal and that was due to the attitude of the duty manager.

I hope this helps anybody unsure.

I've just done a pre-crimble diet to lose half a stone (down to my fighting weight of 11st10lbs) and the thing I find with food is self-education and small changes instead of some dramatic cut-off of all treats and indulgences. It took me five weeks to lose 7lbs on a very gradual diet. For instance instead of getting a take-away ordered in on a Saturday I'd cook my own curry from scratch. Hardly any calories but nom nom. As I've said on here ad infinitum, nobody is going to give you a magic pill that will make you healthier or slimmer, its about finding a balance for you personally that enables you to indulge but to exercise a small degree of discipline. On this most recent diet I had a rule of not drinking alcohol between Monday and Thursday and that made a big difference to what I lost. it's all about retraining your mind regarding diet. Anybody can do it, it's just got to be the right time for them and they have to want to do it. A bit like learning to drive.

So, is cardboard still okay?

Not forgetting cow shit - we used to occasionally drop the milking machines when I was working on the farm.

Cardboard is looking yummier by the minute.
