Thread: Ban Ready Meals.

  1. #1
    smclaren Guest

    Default Ban Ready Meals.


    Is it just me, or how many of you out there hate ready meals?

    The chicken Ding dish that comes from the microwave, the food you take
    out that is so hot it is like trying to eat Lava.

    So full of salt and fat that you can feel the heart attack coming with
    every mothfull.

    I prefer to cook all my own food, i know what is in it, and i know i am
    not going to get thrid degree burns on the roof of my mouth when i eat
    it.

    What's your thoughts on this. should the processed food crap that we
    buy be banned?

    Would doing this help us back to a healthier life style where we ate in
    season foods that were good for us?

    Would this cut down on the FAT western nations we are becoming?

    Natural food is best, if it's in a Packet, then Bin it.

    What is "natural food?" The term seems a little ambiguous at best.
    Since you apparently consider yourself a "purist," explain it.

    I can't solve all those other social problems but I have a tip for the
    lava-hot burning temp food: let it cool down before shoving it in
    your mouth. No gummint prohibition needed. -aem

    Hate? Why would I hate them?

    Well, gee, how about just not buying these things you don't like?
    Is that really so hard?

    > What's your thoughts on this. should the processed food crap that we

    Banned? No, don't see any reason to ban something that
    other people buy and I don't. If your too much of a weak
    minded fool to just not buy this stuff, then it's your problem.

    > Natural food is best, if it's in a Packet, then Bin it.


    Hmm, I like frozen vegetables. Does that count as in a "packet?"
    I'd really not want to see them outlawed.

    "hate" seems a pretty strong word for such an item, IMO

    So what's stopping you from letting it cool down before you shove it in
    your maw? Just like you'd do with any food cooked from scratch.

    > So full of salt and fat that you can feel the heart attack coming with

    Actually there are some frozen meals that are pretty good. Amy's and
    Weight Watchers are two brands I like.

    your mouth...well.. no one can help ya there...

    No. Not purchased routinely perhaps, but I don't need a Nanny-State
    governing my food choices.

    Probably not. One has to be motivated not just left with no options.

    a lot of perfectly good food is fattening. Over-eating and under
    exercising are the culprits for many.

    Salt and fat (the two items you mentioned above) are perfectly natural.

    Natural foods should be banned. They have dirt on them.
    Nobody ever got E. coli H0157 from processed food.

    Dirt? What do you think they grow in? Just wash off root vegetables and
    tubers before you cook them. Rinse off fruit from the trees and berries
    from bushes.

    I don't hate such things. Sometimes I just try to ignore them. Give it
    a try.

    Let it cool before eating. Oh, I forgot, you were in too big a hurry to
    cook.

    You only make cold food?

    > What's your thoughts on this. should the processed food crap that we

    No. Why don't you just stop buying it? They won't make it if people
    don't buy it.

    > Would doing this help us back to a healthier life style where we ate in
    > season foods that were good for us?


    No. People could still make choices that didn't fit your concept of
    "healthy".

    > Would this cut down on the FAT western nations we are becoming?


    Depends.

    To change the subject a bit, why are you preaching to the choir? Folks
    here are interested in cooking, not buying junk at the store and heating
    it in the microwave. We would much rather you posted about good food
    that you like, instead of reading a "lecture" about stuff we normally
    don't eat anyway.

    If you DON'T like it, DON'T f*&king BUY it.

    But also, DON'T try to dictate what others eat.

    Well I see that i have started something here.

    I gave my opinion, and many of you all seemed to rise to this.

    You say no-one ever got ill from processed food. i beg to differ. it is
    always process food that starts the Ecoli break-out. especially when not
    treated correctly.

    I give my opinion you respond that's how forums work. If you don;t like
    it then in this free world you can disagree.

    Fair point on my not buying processed, i don't, maybe I was preaching,
    letting of steam if you will. But do you agree with all the guys on TV
    or Government. No.

    Keep the debate nice and not getting nasty to each other. What's the
    point?

    The worlds crap enough.

    Nothing wrong with making food then heating it up in the micro.

    The reason i hate processed food is that i worked in the industry for a
    while and when you see what they do no wodner. you know there are more
    regulations in making pet food than making food for human consuption.

    Sometime i feel cheated when you find out they have injected chicken
    with brine to make it look bigger that it actually is.

    You didn't read the label when you bought the chicken? IIRC, any liquid
    added to a meat/poultry product has to be disclosed on the label.

    Shop smart, then you won't feel cheated.

    The last big flap was over raw spinach:

    http://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2006/september/

    People in the US (maybe North America) were advised not to eat *any*
    fresh spinach during this outbreak.

    Do you have any cites?

    Sometimes opinions are interesting. When we are talking about food
    borne illnesses and nutrition, I'd rather deal in facts.

    > Sometime i feel cheated when you find out they have injected chicken

    Do you have some facts to back that up? I don't believe chicken looks
    bigger when injected with brine. Chicken is sold by weight. Brine is
    heavy and extremely cheap. The chicken folks would love to sell you
    water at chicken prices.
