      • i loves me my alien time lol making pork broth chai as we speak. it's quite nice. i have a huge pot of pork broth on so i scooped some out and am boiling it up with some spices for an experiment. funny how i like pork broth best out of all the meat broths i have tried. chicken is meh. needs to get put in something to get some flavour. mutton is passable but still bland, fish is only ok in soups and chowders. ditto with salmon broth. beef i possibly need to try again, but pork really is nice. good strong flavour. kinda like drinking roast pork. i dont ever usually put anything other than water, bones and a splash of ACV in my broths either. keep the flavour neutral so as i can cook with them easier. i do like boil ups with pork bones alot. i just avoid the dough balls in it i didnt make it or dont put any in if i do.

        • Morning all,
          I also have me a great big pork roast, that I will cook slowly today. I am so looking forward to that.
          I have managed to drop 1.6kg this week, and a few inches here and there - so yay for me................

          I might just keep eating this way for a bit longer. I am finding the oil hard to stomach, however if I chase it down with a glass of water, that helps.
          Off to get the mail, its only 1.6kms out to the box and back, so I might go uphill on the treadmill after that, just to make up my exersize.
          I will catch you all later

            Boy, that's the TRUTH!!! I live in the U.S. and our food supply is disgusting as a whole! And scary! When I talk to folks from other countries who have moved here, they talk about fruit that actually tastes like fruit rather than the chemical and/or diluted flavor that we get here. It's very disheartening to know that I am missing out on such deliciousness But alas, what can I do. Sometimes I dream of moving to the South of France just to eat good, fresh food and to have a more leisurely lifestyle than we are afforded in the U.S. Maybe I'm just idealizing...

            • i always cook my roasts short and violent. pork and chicken i just leave in till they are cooked to the bone. beef, lamb and venison i usually medium rare. the plan is to get the outside seared and the inside juicy vs melt in the mouth. i also like a good crackle on the outside if there is fat or skin.

              i struggle to do any of those naturally unnatural things like oil. it just feels way wierd to me. plus i dont like it. cant you just ditch the oil? or stash it somewhere easier to eat like in with something or are you shangri-lalaing?

              carnivory is making my jeans looser. i am cal restricting as well so it could just be that. either way, i feel better and it is all good. day 6 of my week today. smoked fish and hardboiled eggs for lunch i think!

              • I am not doing shangri lalalaling as per se, however am adding oil into my day for satiation.
                if it works.........
                However it might just be the calorie restriction and the upping od exersize???? not sure, but if it works.......... I am repeating myself !!!!!!!

                • the thing i find with adding in coconut oil for satiation is it is 150 cals a spoon! i'd rather have something else that is 150 cals than coconut oil LOL

                  gonna be a slow day here. "bored" kids already which usually really means they want something they are not allowed to have. and i have a skype work meeting at 10:30.

                  • Hi hi Gwamma and all,

                    Lizzielou and bamabelle make very good points. The good news is that things are changing a bit. This is from memory, but I read somewhere that for every one farmers' market in the US in 1980, there are now 27. I'm not sure if any non-tech industry can say the same about growth. That Jaime guy showed the world about pink slime, and I think just about every grocery chain except Walmart took it out of their ground beef.

                    When I first started looking for foods with no weird additives, I just freaked out. Soy in canned tuna - wtf? And the ubiquitous sodium solution in whole chickens to plump them up and make you pay for water. And of course the chemicals. I find HFCS is present in almost anything you don't make from scratch, which means that if you want to stay "pure," there are basically no convenience foods. And the cans are all bpa lined. It's truly difficult to eat in a healthful manner here.

                    When I first started switching from CAFO to organic/pastured/wild foods, I freaked at the cost difference. But I flipped my perspective (so I wouldn't just flip out myself) and now I look at it like real food costs one thing and CAFO/fake food is half off.

                    • HI Joanie, oops I missed that post from LL and Bamabelle.
                      yep we are lucky alright, althou over here in NZ I am not convinced about the organic thing. I know a few organic farmers, and I think some of them get away with things that Joe-blow public would not want to know.....so I am not sold on organic

                      anyway hope all is well in Us of A. I have just spoken with my wee DD in Indiana. I miss her so much, however it is going very quickly.
                      Off to mow the lawns if this rain stays away.....................

                            • way to go G! i reckon the planets are doing something as my kids are hell fractious. i do usually have to deprogram them after they have been to their dads for the weekend but they are even worse then usual.

                              half my smoked fish had sawdust on the bottom so i prob got some carbs for lunch lol it also ruined the taste of my coffee with cream. so i could be swearing as well but luckily you cant hear me

                                Oh no seas - none of it was swearing, I just recited the whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God. Its all there - first through to last chapter. I just had to get it off my chest....and I did....so better now

                                Phew
