If it doesn't grow don't eat it :-) I had a huge pan full of cauliflower cous-cous for breakfast - fried in loads of our own Olive Oil with shallots - turmeric and seasoning - YUMMY !!

Many people have always known that the Food Industry is as corrupt as Big Pharma. All about money with the cheapest ingredients without a care in the world for the health of the people.

Watching question time last evening on i-Player, someone raised a question close to my heart - BRING back Home Economics/Domestic Science in Schools to educate students about what food is - proteins/vitamins/carbs and so forth - and not something that comes out of a tin or a box.

As Hippocrates said - Let food be thy medicine - and medicine be thy food :-)


Hi Marz It was called Homecraft/Home Economics in the early 1960s - have kept all my notes - will check them out again - you know "How to launder iron and fold a tray cloth" with plenty of Victoria sponges made, crumbles, scones, pastrystuff etc. Yes savoury food prepd too "from scratch"- no time to fully cook a stew - can remember it slopping down my Robert Hirst raincoat that smelled of stew for days - the stew itself to be finished off at home! However the cooks at home, in schools, factory canteens, student live in accommodation etc - the providers were unfortunately the "sugar pushers" - hungry kids and dads lapped it up of course. Now for me everything white is off the menu - and yes I feel better and gluten has gone too - am feeling quite holy now - occasional lapses of course ie always an addict - that's bread and cakes yummy not! BTW when I mentioned that sugar feeds cancer, a lady who has cancer thoughtfully said to me "Ahh - they put in a line and fed in sugar - to see if the cancer was still alive" - presumably any live cancer cells chows down on the sugar - so now we know
