we are lucky here

as we have a lot of local farmers markets, and although we usually only eat chicken or fish we can source as much as possible locally, if not there are really good sources to find it.

We have a turkey and beef farmer about 50 yards away and too many local veg produce to name.

I would rather eat less and know exactly where our food is coming from than buy meat and fish in any supermarket.

Prime example, and yes my scruples are challenged here.  My big dog has a terminal health problem and to give her quality along with medication she has to have a diet of chicken and a carb. Usually it  is rice but she wont eat it so has mashed potato instead.

She has 9 chicken breasts a day plus instant mashed potato, it works out cheaper than 12 tins of premium dog food a day. I know the chicken is not free range and have battled with my conscience no end but it's wrong that this is a cheaper product.

So as I have strayed into battery (I believe) chicken meat I have decided to rescue a few battery chickens to compensate. Not great but I'm stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea.

My next statement might be a little controversial as in, the cheaper the meat product the less you know what it contains.  If you source good food and cook from scratch then A) you will feed a family cheaper and B0 you will not be filling family with god knows what.

 

Bring Home Economics and compulsory PE back into the school curriculum and we will produce a healthier and less obese generation.

 

It aint rocket science, slow producing energy foods like porridge and wholemeal pasta and pulses are the way forward and get this crap off the supermarket shelves. Ban the microwave and being in the kitchen is great fun.

And yes had 2 kids and a full time job but still cooked every day.

Quite right, BB.

Tried microwave ready meals when we were building our  kitchen. THe joy of opening the door and slinging the dish in was ruined by then eating it. Yuk!

We lived on salad until we finished the job. Never eaten another ready meal and hopefully never will.

I knew you would agree Bee

We obviously have had ping meals in the past as it was quite a novelty until I realised how much they cost.

It's far more cost effective to cook from scratch from produce that is in season and supporting our farmers where animal welfare is at a premium.

Support the local butcher if your not a veggie as I know cj is.
