@Tyranexx All true, but we already agreed on moderation. An interesting fact is also that people living in the so-called blue zones are generally getting much older than we do, on average, and (although in moderation) they all eat and drink to their heart's content, including a lot of foods considered to be too fat by modern society, so one could seriously start wondering about the how and why...

Personally, I stick to somewhat of a similar regimen as you do: fresh vegetables and fruit, I make my meals with all fresh ingredients as well, I never eat white bread (only spelt bread), eat quite a lot of chicken filet, have a non-meat/meat-free day at least one day a week, but usually two. Besides that, I also rarely eat red meat, also to make sure that I still consider a good steak or roast beef as an actual treat instead of as a regular part of my diet, and the only other red meat that I consume, is lean ground beef, which I use when making pasta dishes or my chili con carne.

Other than that, it's also quite smart to have at least one day in the week, on which you eat any kind of fish that's rich in fat and fish oils, such as salmon or tuna. I often buy a big piece of salmon, and just bake it like a piece of meat, in olive oil, only slightly seasoned with pepper, garlic and a pinch of salt.

I don't know if that's available in the States, but over here, we also have quite a large variety of smoked fish. In the summer, when it's sometimes too hot to hang over a stove and cook, I simply put smoked mackerel on a sandwich, with a bit of mayonnaise underneath, instead of butter.

As for processed foods and their sugar content: it's also added as a preservative, which is what makes it so hard to turn things around and come up with a solution, because practically the entire world is now used to this, and removing the sugar from all these foods will make it taste considerably different, and for quite a lot of people probably not palatable anymore.

Organic and/or biological foods don't really have any superior value over non-organic and/or industrially harvested foods. Over here, we recently had a test to see if nutritional values were higher or lower in vegetables from all these various sources. Surprisingly, there were no differences, so the only benefit is basically supporting smaller farmers, who don't leave such a big imprint on the Earth, but other than that, there's no gain for personal health. In fact, there's only a disadvantage, due to prices for these type of foods often being higher than for those harvested in far larger quantities by industrial means.

Anyway, be sure to give me a heads up when you've watched that sugar documentary. I'd be interested to hear what you think about it, and if you were able to glean some new info from it, because you already seem to be quite informed about the topic.

It's on YouTube, by the way. I've already found it by searching for "The Truth About Sugar BBC"...

@Link-Hero I just imagined a Sinatra album cover with a cockroach dressed up like Ol' Blue Eyes. It makes those titles even better!

It's that time again, time for random Mexican trivia with Morpheel.

In México, limes and lemons have their names switched. So if you want a lime for your tacos, ask for a lemon instead.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Tyranexx I think I exist on processed foods alone. Trouble is I don't really have a functioning kitchen at all, so any kind of food prep is a life consuming activity. I actually love cooking but it's so impractical to do it unless I could just not work and do nothing but cook at home. Plus around here actual food has become absurdly expensive while processed food, also becoming expensive is still cheaper. Any time I try to make something the bill is like double just getting quick stuff. Still I can't stand excessively sweet things. I'm a 90% dark cocoa kind of fan.

@ThanosReXXX in the State's maritime food really depends on where you live. if you're in a coastal state it's available. If you're landlocked anything fishy is going to be kind of gamey, or "sushi grade" (a.k.a. frozen...) and either way obscenely expensive to the point commoners wouldn't be buying it, or at least not decent stuff. While not fish, lobster is the fun exception, in that it's the poster child of exotic fine cuisine for the wealthy. Except in Maine where they're actually harvested and people have so much lobster everywhere it's practically free and everyone eats it all the time. Sure there's fresh water fish, but unless your a recreational fisherman it's not really a commercial industry, so you'll pay a high premium for local fresh water fish. One thing is for sure: You don't want to cook fish when you don't have a kitchen stove that vents outside! It takes weeks to get that stink out of the house Not sure if EU has them but we have those stupid recirculating hoods that's just a charcoal and aluminum smoke filter that blows the air back into the room. Lots of people have exterior vents but plenty don't. (If you have gas it's required to vent outside, if you have electric, most builders cheap out.) So meat and fish aren't things you want to cook indoors other than baking a ham or roast or something!

@Morpheel Why....just why would you randomly flip lemon and lime to mean the opposite? Do you also call dogs cats, and cats dogs?

@AlohaPizzaJack just had mod pizza for lunch. Needless to say, I had some roasted pineapple on it as a topping and thought of you 😅

@NEStalgia I dunno. Apparently in other Latin American countries they just use lemon for both.

@NEStalgia Well, my open kitchen lies directly next to my living room (apartment, remember?), and I don't have any kind of hood with a filter hanging above the stove. Dutch houses and apartments in general are pretty well and smartly built, so most of them, except for the REALLY old and non-refurbished ones, have good filtration systems built into the walls. There's built-in vents with regulators like these in the kitchen, in the shower:
Untitled
and above all windows, I've got these things:
Untitled

And in the summer, I just slide open the glass door of my balcony, so any cooking odors can escape through there. But I don't mind the smell of food, and in general, most scents only last for a day or so, before ventilation takes care of it. The smell that lasts the longest, is actually when I bake french fries or other stuff in the deep fryer, but normal food scents dissipate pretty fast, so that would never stop me from baking fish in the house.

And besides: I usually only bake salmon or tuna, and that doesn't smell any stronger than baking a piece of meat. The smoked fish I buy pre-made from the super market or specialty store, and that's always cooled, so no overbearing smell that might penetrate various rooms in my house...

I find it weird, though, that you wouldn't be able to get fresh fish everywhere in the States, regardless of having open or secluded waters in the area or not. Over here, we can buy almost any kind of fish or seafood like lobster, shrimp, clams, squid, salmon, tuna, trout, sole, oysters and what not, in most super markets, or in a specialty store. And not all of it comes from Dutch fishermen, so we also import.

I'd imagine a country as large as the States would be able to do the same, and would have just about anything available in most large and/or mid-size cities. But what do I know? Haven't been around for over 39 years...

@ThanosReXXX - I’m in the Midwest and worked in a meat market in a nice grocery store for a while in college. All the beef and pork came in fresh, but the chicken and seafood was always packed frozen. When I lived on the coasts, there was fresh seafood galore, but here in the middle; it’s freshwater fish, or previously frozen seafood. Personally, I like fried bluegill and perch, or grilled pike just as much as seafood, so I’m okay with it.

@ThanosReXXX I can't begin to imagine how food with smoke, steam, grease, and odors escapes through passive, un-fanned venting....doesn't the ceiling above the stove end up black/yellow/nasty? At least downdrafts do a little here where people have those, even if they suck. And doesn't everything in the house end up with a film on it? Mine does even with the recirculator.

Oh, you can buy fish anywhere in a supermarket, but it's either going to be very expensive, or fairly poor quality. Or both. Something trucked in from the coasts, which means time in a warehouse, sometimes refrigerated. Where I am it's within a number of hours from the coast, so there's dedicated fish markets around and the one supermarket has great variety, and as you can guess, it's at very premium prices. Read: restaurant prices you have to cook at home. Where you just steam a fish into your upholstery.

@bimmy-lee I should have elaborated: obviously, fish that is transported across the country, and ends up in supermarkets, is always transported in ice. But because it's freshly caught, processed/cut up, and immediately transported, it still counts as fresh fish. Even specialty stores over here get their stock from ice-cooled trucks.
