I would far rather spend more time in the kitchen cooking something I will really enjoy and get a sense of achievement from, than spend longer earning money to pay for stuff that is not even as nice as Coke and Doritos.

    A tip, Potato is one of the few veg that does not need to go into boiling water, so put the potatoes on in cold water and then start peeling carrots. Then drop the carrot in with the potatoes. They don't take as long it gives the spuds a great taste. If I am having mash with something I will even mash them together sometimes.

    Well, I am a very good cook, and I love the entire process... it is soothing to be in the kitchen, stirring, slicing and sampling... However, It is not much fun to cook for myself.... and I am lazy.... and what the heck is wrong with Doritos???? I mean seriously... it is the perfect bite....every time....

    Well I sort of gave away why they will stop manufacturing them. Not to mention it takes away the nutrients in vegetables. But the example of a heart vessel breaking or collapsing is not far-fetched.

    Yesterday ate a tuna sandwich with some salad. My mom didn't want to cook which is understandable. We came back from a 3-hour trip. Not to mention we were all tired.
    Tuna contains high levels of mercury, which can cause brain damage. Just saying.

    As far as microwaves melting blood vessels, they're not talking about a microwave oven; they're talking about microwaves from medical devices used for treating cancer.

    Looks like I took part in spreading some information that wasn't true. I looked it up and I don't know why my uncle said this.

    Sure if you eat a lot of tuna it can cause damages such as when someone suffers from mercury poisoning. It can still be healthy for you if you eat it in moderation I assume.

    I try to eat mostly whole, plant-based foods. I don't always succeed, though. Especially at the holidays.

    Why has vegetarian food become 'Plant based foods'?
    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    2 different things... A plant based diet is a diet that is based on food derived from plants...
    Veganism is an ethical movement where an individual abstains from any animal products in the form of food, clothing and products tested on animals, or that require animal abuse of any kind...

    Also, "vegetarian" can include dairy and processed junk food.

    I see 'Plant based' on all sorts of foods that must be highly processed, like substitute milks and meat. If I wanted to differentiate a non-dairy eater I would say 'vegan'. I suppose I could be being an individual from a previous era trying to keep the language static, or that for some it adds some extra connotation I don't get. But I have a strong suspicion that it is some advertiser's B.S. Begging your pardon for the language Ma'am. I don't like using the 'Ad.' word, but sometimes it is necessary.

    I said "whole, plant-based foods." "Whole foods" are unprocessed. And "vegan" is commonly considered to include a whole philosophy beyond diet, and also does not exclude those highly processed foods. I don't have anything to do with what an advertiser might put on a label but my use of "whole, plant-based foods" is an accurate description.
