Get your meat down …

As we’ve all known, our western affluent meat centric diet needs some re-jigging.

Someone needs to tell the fat guy burger-maniacs to cool down, I mean the pundits building their careers on such gross consumption that lead the masses to shed any conscience of stuffing their faces with slices of dead animal.  I actually myself am a meat eater, no less guilty but need to alter course. Better were the days (for the planet) when most folk were poor. A jarring remark but in some ways true. Remember, its not just one person tucking into another multi-tier burger, its armies of people in every country on a daily basis around the globe … at least for those that can afford such consumption.

Nuitrition does not equal (solely) MEAT.

A friend told me yesterday that ‘Home Economics’ no longer exists in UK schools, gone the same way as the traditional Woodwork and Metalwork courses that I absolutely loved at Secondary School in the early 1970’s and excelled at too. In other words they know bugger all about nuitrition or cooking simple meals at home (or hand tools or hand eye co-ordination or making something to an acceptable conclusion) and having no practical experience of doing such a thing their minds will be a void …. well done, the Educationalists ‘strike again’ !!
