So, here in Canada and I'm sure elsewhere, they have victory garden-like programs as well as asking for donations of money to buy fresh food for cooking. Some of the most requesed items cans of tomatoes, lentils, and pasta; just to name a few.


Yeah I've read (and believe) economic health can be measured by the number of 2nd had stores in a community. 13.gif

Buying healthy food might seem more expensive, but it really isn't. Especially if you make everything from scratch and bake your own bread.

We don't use any sugar or wheat, use xylitol and stevia for sweetener and make bread out of nuts and seeds. Keeps you full for a long time. thumbsup.gif

No, it isn't. I mostly buy in bulk, 20kgs rice, 4 litres soy sauce, I can huge amounts of tomatoes fruit and salmon. Last night I made chili, a jar of my home canned tomatoes, $5 of ground beef $1 of fresh mushrooms, $1 worth of dried kidney beans $2 pack of seasoning and half an onion. It's enough for two days of meals. If I'd bought fast food, pizza or burgers, the two days of meals would be about $60.

Laziness and love of convenience is the culprit.

We made a big pot of chicken egg drop soup that lasted us 4 days. Finally ran out yesterday. chuckle.gif

3 Chicken legs €2.30, an onion, bunch of garlic, celery, ginger, coriander, carrot, bay leaves, salt and pepper, eggs €1.50. beercheer.gif

And Mason gets the chicken scraps (not the bones though).

I don't think it is. I use to be very skinny when I was younger and my mother would always say "you are too skinny" and shake her head like this sad2.gif.

Were you offended by it? As much as you would have been had she called you fat?

I don't think it's funny or acceptable, I just question the double standard.

I was offended because she made it out as if I was emaciated or something. Having looked at pictures of me back then, yes I was skinny, but within normal health standards. I believe that people that are underweight (not emaciated) or fat (most of population) know they are and don't need other people sticking their nose in where it's not wanted.

The problem here was with the waiter, Jeff, what's his problem anyway?

Well, gotta go there is a free dinner at the casino waiting for me. Have fun kritters.

Free dinner! yay.gif Nothing tastes as good as free dinners! yay.gifyay.gifyay.gif Have fun US!


I agree with the double standard fat vs. skinny bs. My mom still to this day says I'm skinny. Which I'm not, just skinnier than her. chuckle.gif I'm perfectly normal weight (but probably lighter than most women my age lol).
