Re: Surviving without cooking from Coop/supermarket ettiquette

Personally, I like buying fresh sausage and eat some of it fresh (and raw), and let the rest dry out and eat them (also raw).

What?

Tom
I was told by my Indian friend that one cannot cook their vegetarian food in the same pans, pots which they used for cooking meat. Didn't ask more and don't know other details.

If we are to take OP seriously....and also accept the idea that supermarkets&food companies didn't conquer the world after all, well....this is a very bad advice, Tom.
I wouldn't eat raw sausages (most of them contain pork meat), or anything containing raw chicken/poultry meat.

Chicken, no, but pork, why not?

It's quite the norm here and in Italy.

Nonsense.

If that were the case, I wouldn't be here to write this.

That's a school playground answer.

There's a direct link to bowel cancer etc and for children, salami etc contains far too much sodium.

But, I eat eat salami and ham etc and so do my kids - just not every day.

...

I'm not sure what the prevalence is here, but growing up in the rural US with a lot of pork being locally produced, trichinosis was a big concern. I know with proper hygienic practices and feedstocks, it is becoming less of a problem, but I don't quite trust enough to risk eating pork raw. Even more of a risk would be uncooked wild game.

When I was a starving student, I use to go to as many art openings as I could. Not so much for the art or the crowd, but for the free wine, crackers and cheese. Find a guide to upcoming openings and crash them. You might pick up other benefits in the process.
I used to do that in London. You could eat and drink very well and almost every evening there is some event. Miss the fancy canapés and bubbly.

I suspect this has to do with one's metabolism. If a person is running predominantly on sugars and carbojydrates, then I suppose meat and fat intake would get stored in fat cells. But if one is predominantly using fat as a source of energy, not only is it burned up as energy, existing body fat is used up as energy when one is not eating. When I want to lose weight, I go on a meat only diet, and I lose about 1 pound per day.

Because religion. :/

I didn't want to go into my background, where I'm from, my unusual childhood etc etc. I'm struggling with fitting in anyway. On top of that, everyone's assuming I'm a troll. It's kinda ironic how I'm being called stupid by people who're ignorant about the rest of the world.

That said, I'm really thankful to the people who've been helpful and taken this seriously. I really mean it.

And how are you supposed to be taken seriously if you don't provide some context for your "unusual" questions?
I've seen quite a few of threads started by evident trolls and people took them pretty seriously...believe me it is comical. Then at some point in the discussion everyone realises it was only for the lulz...oh, the joys of open forums.
Btw, troll and stupid are two different things.

Mio stupido, cakodivino stupider.
Orlly? They're different? My my...


I didn't think it was necessary to bore people with the details of my life, which no one is entitled to.
Anyway, didn't see it like that. Don't understand why someone would bother invent such a detailed scenario just to trouble a bunch of people "for the lulz". But whatever you say, you forum legend you.

Because of course trolls are known for being the complete exact opposite of stupid. Ah silly me.

I take it you're new here....
For the lulz, for pi**ing off, out of sheer boredom....etc etc


Don't take it too personally, really. Enjoy your staying here....and the food, of course.
