A Sunday Ramble: Food
In the stone age they ate tubers from the ground, I suppose that’s the same as me eating potatoes; except I don’t have to forage for them. I do a little foraging in the fruit and veg department of the supermarket but it’s not exactly getting my hands dirty. They say the discovery of fire made all the difference; that first class animal protein made our ancestors brains develop quickly and many of them became smarter; the rest went into politics!
Anyway, I took a few left over potatoes, half a tin of salmon, a lettuce leaf, a chicken drumstick and thawed a few Icelandic prawns and made myself a gourmet lunch. It was yummy!
This was left over potato fried golden brown, you haven’t lived unless you have had fried potato. I fried my pork medallion slowly and added some white cabbage; not the most frugal meal I’ve cooked but cheaper and tastier than the meals we see those chefs on TV cook.
This was that old standby bacon ‘n’ egg with a few chips, green beans and fried tomato; yummy. They say tomatoes and the stuff they eat in the Mediterranean is good for you. I’m not so sure, I think a stone age diet is probably the best. In medieval England they ate a lot of duck and and water fowl. They would also eat eggs, but maybe not chicken eggs. Chickens come from Asia and turkeys come from America. People were mainly vegetarian before they discovered fire and started cooking. That was what made them smarter! Food can affect your growth, physical and mental. Some children who don’t absorb their food probably don’t grow to a normal height. I think you need vitamins and minerals and enough protein to develop normally. I wonder what politicians eat?
They say you are, what you eat. What are you eating? Too much fat is bad for you and the same can be said of carbohydrates. Losing weight is quite easy if you substitute fibre for fat and carbs. I’m hungry now…
