*PANICKS*

WHAT THE HECK IS THERE TO EAT!!!!???

Well…
Cooking takes care of salmonella, swine flu and bird flu.

Organic fruits and veggies are supposed ly insecticide and herbicide free.

Heavy metals can be minimized by avoiding certain fish.

The only thing questionable is mad cow… There’s no definitive cause for mad cow.

No need to panic. There’s plenty to eat.

Why did my chicken come out rubbery?

My first time making baked chicken…. I seasoned it, put 4 legs in a Pyrex pan thing and cooked them for 1 hour at 390 degrees…. 30 mins on each side… they are tough and rubbery….. not easily falling off the bone like normal… what did i do wrong? Could it be the meat quality?

slow and low is the key. Season them, put them on a baking sheet, or a pyrex pan, whichever, but add a little water in the bottom. this will keep them moist while cooking. Bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, and check them. If you have a probe thermometer, check the temperature, it should be at 160 degrees when you take them out. There is no need to turn them, they will cook evenly enough. Once you take them out, let them sit a minute or two, then serve! They should turn out alot better. Don’t ever cook chicken at 390, that is way too high and it cooks the chicken too fast, drying the meat out. And keeping it in for an hour definitely took all the moisture out, no wonder it turned out rubbery! I hope this helps, and I hope your chicken turns out delicious!

Lamb & Aubergine Salad with Chick Peas & Roasted Tomatoes

Lamb and aubergine is a legendary combination think moussaka but its even better with the tang of tomatoes and punch of garlic and lemon. Lamb backstraps arent cheap (theyre a prime cut), but in a salad like this, a little goes a long way.

Vegetarian Diet Good Or Bad?

Main reason I ask this is after answering another question similar to this on this site seems as though everybody seems to think meat is the only source of protein and iron and with out it you will die. I agree whole hearted that there are benefits to eating meat but in terms of quality of diet meat is one of the lowest forms of nutrition for human beings. For example upon eating cooked meat, when it enters the stomach it is meet by white blood cells as the body believes it is a foreign invader unlike plant material, protein intake has a massive affect of cancers ability to replicate but ONLY animal based proteins. This has been proven in both rats and mice (sources being dr bass and the book The China Study the biggest nutritional study of nutrition ever done ISBN 978-1-932100-66-2) in terms of human design the only aspect of our body designed for meat consumption is our K9 teeth our intestines are designed for plant based material. In that sense we are a hybrid, omnivore teeth and vegetarian insides. Meats a big Business it is highly promoted. the disadvantages of drinking cows milk (excluding the stupidity of drinking an animal so differents milk) are well documented but again its big money but that’s a different thing altogether i suppose. Anyway after than rant the point of the question is to try and figure out why all you 13 year old americans seem to think that meat is so important in your diet! (No offense meant by that) Who ever gives the best answer in terms of researched and makes their point well whether for or against will get best answer. Should be interesting :D

The answer is they’re right, meat is important in any diet. The proteins in soy and beans and such arn’t filled with all the essential amino acids the body needs for healthy muscle, hair, skin, etc. If you have to be a vegetarian you should pick up a why isolate protein supplement.

To go on with meat being important so other benefits of meat to someone who is trying to grow is the importance of cholesteral in hormone production. The cholesteral we get from meats help produce hormoones which are absolutely needed for growth, wheather it getting taller or stronger.

Also fat from meats ARE in fact important to a healthy diet, though in moderation. It’s excepted that we should get 25-30% of our caloric intake from fat split between saturated fat (the meats in out diets and eggs) monosaturated (nuts, fish oil) and polysaturated (olive oil). So thats about 8-10 percent of calories from saturated fats you need to get from meats.

Sorry if I don’t include any sources, I’ve been doing research on healthy eating and weight trianing all my life and it would be a bother to find all my sources again. I don’t expect to get best answer but I do hope you don’t give of meats for good. Also in college I read a couple of articles that claim our habit of eating meat was what gave us the ability to evolve to our current state of intellect. Can’t know for sure though

Can slight anorexia cause problems with having children?

The summer between 8th and 9th grade i started eating REALLY badly. Eating a very small amount about once a day, sometimes twice a day. I started eating ‘okay’ once 9th grade began. Then I never stopped having my period. Then i became vegetarian for 16 months, and i didn’t take vitamin supplements or anything. I’m lactose intolerant, so i didn’t have much calcium during that whole time. As of 2 months ago i’m eating poultry again, eating more healthy, and taking vitamins everyday.

Could that period of my life where i didn’t eat well cause me problems with having children in the future if i continued to eat healthy until then and beyond?

I’m fifteen at the moment, and i plan on having kids in my early twenties.

Eating healthy is a great thing! What you done shouldnt cause you any problems having children, but if you ever suffer from a eating disorder for a long period of time it can weaken and possibly damage your heart and other important organs. Keep eating healthy this is a great advantage to your body and will increase your life span! If you ever feel like you are relapsing get help ASAP because sounds like you wanna have kids and its important to treat your body well to have them.
