    Huh. 'Health food shop' here in the UK means 'vegetarian (+ fish oil hidden away in capsules)'. It's where you go to buy your soya milk, gluten meat replacement and soya fake cheese, along with a...

    I wonder what you've replaced the dairy with as a source of protein? Extra nuts and seeds? Those would be less digestible.

    What kind of kidney? I tried pig's kidney once - never again. Like something died last week in the public lavatory. But lamb's kidney is delicious even without the soaking.

    The lamb mince I've had has been full of fat. Apparently some people feel the need to pre-fry it and drain off some fat before using it in recipes. (No, not me.)

    Risk of stating the obvious here, but I think we all eat 'low carb' by CW standards. It'd take quite a lot of potatoes/ white rice/ apples to get anywhere close to the carb content of the a 'normal'...

    My 'cashier moment' was one who couldn't recognise a turnip. Exotic vegetable, apparently.

    True. It looks as though the story originated with the Daily Mail. Not a paragon of scrupulously accurate journalism.

    Good grief, yes, looks dire.

    If I've missed a meal, don't have time to hard boil an egg and want to take snacks with me, I'll take macadamia nuts, chunks of creamed coconut and 85% chocolate, and...

    I expect that's exactly what they meant. In a hurry once, I bought some cold chicken labelled '100% pure chicken breast' or some such. Presumably meaning that all the chicken in it came from the...

    Thanks for the chemistry link, TQP. I will give it to my husband to understand on my behalf.

    So... OK for storage at cold temperatures?

    Just washed them up in the normal way. Are you thinking this could be something superficial rather than intrinsic to the material, so it'll burn/ wash off eventually?

    I was quite pleased to find clear silicone pots in the local high quality cookware place - bought several. The packaging says you can take them from fridge or freezer straight to microwave or oven,...

    I'm not averse to the occasional cheat, but when out for cream tea with a friend I just cleaned out her unwanted clotted cream. (Which has to be an oxymoron - unwanted clotted cream?)

    That's right! It'll boost our flagging blood sugar, too.

    (I find the adherence problems hard to credit. It doesn't take long at all for 98% of what's in the supermarket to stop looking like food.)
