Thanks, could of warned me though, as the shock has made me go all Funny-er than normal... :o)
ON a butty,,,with lashings of tomato sauce mmmm,,, i dont eat any fat now, but i do like me carbs... :O)
Carbs are the very best things for you, if they're not too processed. I had a big feed of pumpkin and potatoes "roasted" in the frypan tonight. And some tinned black beans in crushed tomatoes. I can't buy black beans here, so I had to send away for them, would you believe? There's a health food store in Brisbane that delivers any amount for $10 by courier, and you get it the next day. That's really cheap, considering the distance. So I put in a big order for things that are hard or impossible to get here. And I got 4 tins of those beans. they're extremely nutritious, and I actually can stand to eat them more than other beans. I'm not a fan of the texture of beans. But they lower your cholesterol and are really good for you, so I make the effort.
How are you now, Mike? Any doctor's verdict?
Yes, Verdict was good thankfully, just HBP, every thing else ok, I refused a meal last nigh Noodles, as the last one i had was fatty, so i had pot,s peas, and chick breast, and was happy with that, I can not eat nuts of any kind, but i love beans, they dont love me, but hey like you said they are really good for you, I take a cholesterol reducing marge instead of butter as its less fat, even though my cholesterol is fine fatty food makes me feel sick, no biscuits,cakes,sweets, coffee,tea, juice and water now, Ill do my best to look after myself now :O)
Good on you. I found when I stopped salt my BP lowered dramatically. I still have some - you have to have a little bit - but it's never added, just in processed foods like bread or tinned goods. I do sneak in a stock cube occasionally and those are often really high in salt, so I'm getting enough. Don't forget to have some dried fruit for a sugar hit if you crave sweets.
Yeah i use a little of that low salt stuff but not much, i love bread, i can eat dry bread and enjoy doing it too, when i was a puppy id buy a small Welsh cob loaf and eat it for my school lunch, carbs are what i like eating, i like vegs too xcept for the odd one here n there..:P)
I remember buying the hot bread on a Sunday morning, and eating it by the time it got home! LOL My parents would never send my sister to buy bread or mince. She would demolish the bread, and would even eat most of the raw mince on the way home. ERRK!
Think you sister needed worming Dezzie flower not being rude or nuffink, but raw mince???????? nearly as bad as your soop for heavens sake :O(
Well, it's a delicacy in some parts.
She was just an epicure at heart. Still, my reaction is just ERRK.
YUCK!! no way would i eat that crap, next thing you knows you'd be dragging ya bum across the grass like wot them dogs do,,nasty nasty...
You still catch things from cooked meat, let alone eating it raw. I have always liked my meat nearly burnt, and dried out from overcooking is fine by me. It doesn't kill everything, but it helps. And don't get me started on sushi!
Raw fish,,well thats as bad they might as well eat um wriggling !
I've seen them cooking live, skinned fish in a tv program. It was barbaric.
No way,, i couldn't eat anything thats was looking at me or trying to move out the way of my fork,,oh no,,no no no no!!!
Well, they died during the cooking, but I was horrified. Even if I ate meat, if I had to kill my own, I wouldn't.
Strange thing hunger,, it brings into action self preservation mode in most humans, its amazing what you would do if you was literally starving to death :O(
Yes, people have eaten their own children in seiges. I don't think I would do that. I don't know where he's been! LOL
Ha ha,,dont expect a birthday card off him now if he's reading this :O)
Not a grave risk of that.
On the subject of things to eat, I really ought to cook something for tea. My back is so sore, though and I don't want to stand at the stove for long. Maybe I'll have fruit. Or something in a tin.
MMM, something in a tin sounds deliciously exciting beans on a raft for tea is it then :O)
I assume the raft is toast?
I don't like beans. I try to like them. I really do. but I can't warm to them. Tofu - the silken variety - I can stand, and soy milk. I used to even like soy beans in a can, but my favourite brand that had them in a tomato-y sauce stopped making them. But the others I have to be in the mood for, or hide them in something else.
Happy Birthday for the 5th, Mikey!!!!! I hope you have a lovely day. Don't eat too much cake, will you? Leave some for me. I hope you have your family around you and that you are feeling on top od the world on the day.
I will be away from Tuesday afternoon until maybe Monday. Anaesthetists, conferences, family problems, grandbabies - it's all happenin' at Dez's place this week. Or at least at Dez's motels.
Therefore, I might forget to buy you the fabulous gift I had planned. Very expensive and delicate. I woz gunna putta wrapping onnit, too. Natcherly I will try to do this, in spite of my busyness. But should I forget, you has missed out on the most bestest thing wot you wood have loved more than life itselluf. Pity.
Thank you Dezzie for your kind birthday wishes they are very much appreciated, I will however indulge in a small birthday cake a tradition here in UKLand, i never ate yesterday so it will be fine, i really hope things level off for you there and you can come to my B/P Your friend in Annoyance Mikey :O)
Er...shouldn't that have read, "your annoying friend"?
So you went ahead and held the party WITHOUT me? I can't believe it! An' I bort the bestest thing an' all! I will post it to you to make you feel bad. It will be there Thursday. Don't let it out of the cage - er - box, though. It's a bit tetchy about bein' shoved threw that mailbox slot.
