Food for thought
« on: March 16, 2015, 09:58:59 pm »
Good morning all

I saw this blog post and had to share it. Take the time to read the article referred to in the second paragraph of the  "It just happens to be cheaper" post here. It's scary stuff. The bits about the "rosemary extract" and the "fresh" foods are particularly insidious.

Thank goodness we have our thermies, backyard gardens, and farmers markets. Hopefully they're going to be enough...

Oh Yuk. I try to make everything at home but occasionally slip up. I hate to think what we may have eaten.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Well I'm gobsmacked.  Those cheeky manufacturers. Thanks for the link. It's a great read.

Would I be naive thinking it's only in the UK ( maybe wishful thinking)
