According to some scientisty type on the news eating all of that reduces your chances of dying by 42%.

Maybe I did but it's 'cos I didn't expect the scientisty type to have a sense of humour.

More veg = more farts= more noise = more pongs = more methane = more global warming.
Oh well :hmm:

There was a television advertisement a coupleof years ago that started by telling us how methane was contributing to global warming, and the biggest methane producers. It mentioned industry, air travel, etc. then pointed the finger firmly at cows.
The logic went, eat less beef, need less cows, produce less methane, save the planet. Didn't actually say it but implied it

I like veg - but in a restaurant why does it always have to be bloody broccoli (and just about raw, at that)? Can't stand the stuff :*

Good God I love broccoli! In fact, the biggest problem I have spending 12 or so nights on the road is getting the vegetables I need for a balanced diet.

I love to eat broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, spinach, and other good for me things. Hard to find them in airports or at 10 pm when you get to the hotel, hungry, after a long day at work. Then you're pretty much limited to beer, pizza, or fried bar food, if you can get anything at all.

Lemon garlic broccoli.

Separate a head of broccoli into roughly equal size florets, soak in ice water for 30 minutes to crisp 'em up, then blanche in boiling salted water for a couple of minutes until crisp-tender. DO NOT OVERCOOK!! Dump the broccoli into a strainer and hold under cold running water for a minute or two to stop the cooking process and set aside. In a deep non-stick skillet over medium heat add two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, one finely chopped garlic clove and a thinly sliced shallot and cook for one minute or until soft. Add broccoli florets, salt and pepper to taste, one teaspoon of grated lemon rind and two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice. Use a spatula to stir-fry the whole thing for a couple of minutes until the broccoli has heated up. Tasty. :ok:

I'm going to try that next time, pigboat.

My culinary secret is that olive oil and garlic are often the foundation of masterpieces no matter what you cook around them.

Toss that with linguine, capers, olives and a couple of anchovies and you've got a pretty good dinner in around ten minutes.

Love it !!

Had a friend who reckoned that the medical profession do an about face every 5 years or so - remember the Edna Currie egg scare ? - and he said that when they get around to proving that lying in bed eating potato crisps ( chips in USA speak ) and drinking beer, he was way ahead of them.

Long story, but the gist of it was a lorry driver in marital stress, who took his 3 yr. old son with him "on the road". When questioned by huffy fluffy do-gooders about this practice and what did he feed the child on, he replied - same as me, Guiness and fish and chips every night at whatever roadside pull-in we happen to be. Shock ! Horror ! talk of child abuse etc. but a nutritionist did an analysis and found that the child was not suffering from any ill effects, and was properly nourished !! Iron, fibre, Vitamin C, all in abundance !

QED.

so, I'd be 42% less dead?

otherwise, thanks, pigboat!
Just can't imagine why broccoli is so unpopular. Except that it stinks when being cooked.

Indiscipline Girl.....everytime I see something like that I am reminded of a great (?) Australian Pastoralist, a Janet Holmes A Court....who quipped that if God wanted us not to eat meat he would not have given us the teeth we have....or indeed, John Cleese, who recently noted that if God didn't want us to eat animals....he wouldn't have made them out of Meat!!! :}

Humans are omnivores. I like to think that definition means I can eat anything I damn well please. :p
Probes PM me if you want my recipe for linguini and asparagus in lemon cream sauce. Should be eaten sparingly, otherwise you can hear your arteries hardening from the cream and butter.

If I ate 7 portions of fruit or veg in a day , I would spend the best part of that day & the next sitting (sat ? )on the bog.
My decrepit digestive system is no longer up for that sort of thing. Give me a break.

Given that everybody's chance of dying is exactly 1, and the scientists know this perfectly well, this is yet another example of the media mangling perfectly good input information and outputing completly incomprehensible garbage.

I have been reading about early expeditions by explorers and settlers into the Rocky Mountains in the 1840's. The healthiest by far were the scouts (white) who lived on buffalo meat, coffee, whisky & water, and absolutely nothing else. Not an illness among them.

7 portions of veg a day? Who wrote that? The Guild of Greengrocers?

Firstly,

What's our most similar species? Gorillas. Haven't they seen how fat gorillas get? And what do gorillas eat? Nothing but veg!

Secondly,

Gorillas only live to an average age of 35 or 40 years.

Pass that burger, will you ....no, not the veggie one!

somehow I doubt a little if they'd make a good reference group to be compared with the specimen of contemporary lifestyle? :hmm:

I would assume ppruners are in better shape than the average, though I did have a navigator who regarded even the playing of cards as "committing sport"

Need to read the small print at the bottom of the press release - This research was funded by a cartel of vegetable and fruit producers.
