Was thinking of going on the paleo diet and as I was setting up a meal plan I noticed coconut oil is in every cooked meal. Got no fucking clue where to buy some at least not in my local Asda or Aldi.

Also I very rarely eat anything with coconut and dislike Bounty bars so based on that would I probably dislike anything cooked in coconut oil? If so what's some good alternative oils.

The study everyone keeps referencing in attack of the paleo diet is pretty much completely irrelevant. The study measured actual calorific intake for less than one week, and the findings were that there is no metabolic difference between calories from fat and and from carbs.
However, the main argued benefits of low-carb diets in terms of weight-loss, stem mainly from the short-term and long-term effects of different foods on satiety. I.e. people eating less carbs are generally eating less overall. Some of these effects are fairly quick to begin after you switch diets, others can take a few weeks to start after your hormones rebalance.

One other thing worth mentioning, forget about weight-loss, forget about any other alleged health benefits, the more carbs you eat the greater the risk of developing diabetes. That should be a good enough reason for anyone to cut down on carbs.

And remember; you do need some carbs to live, you just don't need a constant drip of them throughout the day.


Back on topic, how easy it is to get coconut oil depends on where you live. Shops in more middle or upper-class areas generally tend to be more likely to sell it.
Holland and Barretts sells it, but it's a bit on the pricey side. My local sainsburys, tescos and waitrose sell it, but morrisons and co-op don't. Failing everything else, you can get it from amazon.

It obviously isn't the same thing but very similar, I went full Atkins for about a month. That resulted in me shedding a stone (from 12 stone to 11 my height being 5'6 to give you an idea). I'm not going to pretend it was an entirely pleasant experience, so I'd only recommend it for a short burst I could really feel the craving for carbs and I never felt sated regardless of how much I ate.

The diet plan that I use now that is better long term, but is slow gains, is to measure my intake and output and plan consumption accordingly with a deficit. But with a precision where I've calculated how many calories I should burn in each activity based on my exact weight (this has brought me down to just under 10 from just over 11 stone over 9 month, the slowest movement being the last couple of pounds). It does however require being quite anal for a while (I ended up building a spreadsheet to plot it). The thing what I noticed most while budgeting is the difference between what fills you up and its calories, there is obviously correlation, but not as close as you would imagine if you never looked at it in detail,sugary drinks being probably the worst thing. I recommend this OP if you decide you want to eat what you feel like again, but also not become a fat fuck.

Understanding the calorie content of food is the kind of skill that can set you up for a much more positive relationship with your diet for the rest of one's life, in my opinion. And you don't need to count calories for very long once you're out of the need to have a calorie deficit - once you have a rough, intuitive handle on how many calories are in the kinds of meals you like to eat, you can then expend a minimal amount of effort on eating roughly at maintenance. It's this kind of understanding of food and nutrition that I think leads to meaningful change in people's eating habits that are far more likely to stick with them.

How can I make my packing up for work more exciting?

If I'm not warming up leftovers then I'll take in a sandwich, usually cheese with rocket or some form of chutney, nuts and then fruit (apples, clementines, grapes, raisins or strawberries) but I'm getting rather bored of this and need some inspiration. I guess I could branch out into soup.

Of course I can, mealprepsunday is good, but Americans are strange in their... ways and go overboard by making months worth of burritos or something equally daft.

Anyway, I've got some nice recipes on rotation:

- Chilli con carne with jasmine rice. Find a good solid recipe for this, as you'll be eating it often. A good ratio of 2:1 meat : beans is preferred. Throw in some sweetcorn in there for variety/texture. Whats nice with this one is that you can easily whack everything into a wrap (rice n'all) and sex it up with guacamole or whatever.

- Sag Aloo. Your humble spinach and potato curry. It's devilishly easy to make, provided you have the required spices. Throw in a cooked chicken breast, and you have a deluxe curry. Eat it with a naan, and you'll be laughing. Someone mentioned about curry being smelly. Well there are lunch rooms for that reason. No eating at your desk bollox.

- Nick Griffin's Beef Stew. Can't get better than this on a winter day. Cheap cuts of beef are key, followed by a good bottle of your favourite ale and vegetables, and this thing practically makes itself. You can opt to leave the spuds out and make a mash separately, which is perfect. OR you can be crazy and have it with some crusty bread.

- Pasta: Too easy. I cheat here and make my pasta fresh on the morning, 10 minutes while I have my breakfast coffee and you're done. The sauces that accompany them can be made in advance, anything from cream and mushroom, to tomato - it's easy as piss, and I usually reserve the pasta dishes for my lazy weeks.
Watch this video for Marco Pierre White's glorious tomato sauce:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEIjkr4QPFs
"...And in my opinion it's one of the most important sauces in the kitchen" - Too true Marco, as this thing can be used for literally an entire dinner menu. Soups, lasagna, pasta, chilli con carne, pizza... etc... Tomato sauce from scratch, it's essential. Freeze it so it lasts longer.

Glamorgan sausages go alright in a lunch box. All you need is breadcrumbs (bread + hand blender), cheese, spring onion and an egg.

I find they're better if you experiment, Emmenthal with mushrooms is a good variation, possibly with something like chilies or tomato relish.

I'm betraying my northern working-class roots bybeimg a cider supping fairy. I want to get into beer but so far I've tasted nothing that I wanted to drink more than a sip of. What would .gs recommend as a beer to get me into beer? Price isn't an issue, but I do need to be able to get it easily in a supermarket.

11534 What is the deal with meal deals?
Meal deals seem to have sprung up everywhere but I'm having trouble getting my head around the logic of it all. If I pop into the shop to buy some lunch then of course I'm going to get a drink - I mean fuck, I usually end up buying crisps AND chocolate because even kids get that at lunchtime.

So what is all this about then? Is it some attempt to control us with corporate sanctioned meals that mean the death of real choice?! Are they actually not very good value at all?

It didn't bother me enough, correct, but that was nothing at all to do with what the staff at the Co-op told me. If anything his agreement with what I was saying encouraged me to submit a written complaint.

Shoppers at a Tesco store had to be told to "sit" like dogs before they scrambled for reduced price meat.

A video shot by Facebook user Johnny Lester in the Weston Favell store shows people forming a scrum as they cram their baskets full of bargain produce.

My local Tesco Express reduces fresh food, usually bread, mushrooms, hummus and potatoes, to around 5p if you go late evening.

I've no idea what the proper Tesco supermarkets are like and I'm not going near one if they put reduced meat out in a trough for scumbags to fight over like a pack of piranhas eager to get a pork chop reduced to half price.

My food bank had some crates of out of date Diet Pepsi come in from Tesco or somewhere, so I helped myself to some cans. Of the four, two had dents in them (as pictured), but I thought that was just because they'd been dropped or hit, and shouldn't affect the stuff inside (although I would have to be careful when opening them).

On tasting the Pepsi in the dented cans, both had a horrible metallic taste, like I was drinking blood. The undamaged cans tasted perfectly fine.

What caused this?

There is plenty of food. Did you scrape a pass in biology or something and you think that makes you an authority? The arrogance. If we can use aspartame, citric acid, etc as substrates for respiration, what makes you think bacteria cant? They are far more adaptable than we are, and there are literally millions of species of acidophilic bacteria.

Botchulism isn't entirely beyond the realms of possibility just because it's a Diet Pepsi.

Yeah, I realised after I posted it I hadn't changed it. I write it this way to annoy my Microbiology professor, as they aren't allowed to drop you marks for spelling anymore unless they ask you to specifically name the bacteria so I put it every chance I get. It's good craic, but I should have been more vigilant.

I once wrote "fucking vegetarians" on a question about the moral implications of the consumption of livestock and comment on the alternatives, like quorn and shit, and he bollocked me for a good 15 minutes for that. Luckily it was a formative, he seems to have mentally adopted me the way he acts towards me. I think it was because I 100% one of the units he lectures last year and he sees me as his project.

Reposted here; though not strictly food.

What's your favourite cider? Do you prefer fizzy or still; dry or medium?

The Henney's Exhibition Cider (2011 vintage) they are selling for £1.65 a bottle at Tesco is beautiful, as is the still variant. Personally I prefer still, as it doesn't make me burp and I can drink more without wanting to throw up.

Unfortunately I live in't north so local cider isn't a common thing. Manchester's Moss Cider looks interesting and next summer I'll try and get my hands on some.

Hungry Jack's: As you would expect for any cider that is 'American style', tastes like sugar. Not overpoweringly sweet though, so it was quite nice.

Abrahalls: Surprisingly bitter, but one of the best ciders I've ever had. Some really well balanced flavours. Would recommend.

I've picked up a block of tofu but I have no idea what I'm meant to do with it to make it taste nice. It's just sitting in my fridge in it's packet of liquid for now. I gather I'm meant to put it between two chopping blocks with something heavy on the top to dry/firm it, but then I'll be left with what looks like a cross between Wensleydale and Styrofoam.

Cut it into blocks then lay it out on a kitchen towel, put another towel on top of it, put the chopping board on top of that with three or four tins of whatever to weigh it down. Leave it 3-5 hours. Then fry it with something that has minimal flavourings because it will absorb anything you put with it like mad, it's so easy to overdo it.

There's nothing I don't get, it just seems bizarre to me that you're acting like Postmaster General and saying we shouldn't have a thread dedicated to a particular foodstuff because it's mentioned in the sticky a few times - the very last thread we had on this board about cooking suggestions was this curry thread from, half a year ago, August >>10896 which, by your logic, we shouldn't have had if there's curry recipes in the sticky and instead we should have no new threads on this board and everyone should just post in the sticky.

Anyway, enough of being an arse, thanks for the suggestions.

I am not that person. You seem to be really good at missing the "Anonymous" bit on every post. Silly soy bean.

Anyway, you're welcome. Get crackin' in the kitchen, lad.

I bought some chicken but left it in my rucksack for about 12 hours before remembering to put it in the fridge. Will it still be safe to eat?

Unless it was next to a radiator it should be fine. Use it ASAP, though.

11037 Ale
If we can have a cider thread, we can have a beer thread. Both American style craft beers and proper British bitters are welcome ITT.

I haven't made a point of seeking out new ales since I went to a beer festival in June but with Christmas coming up, I might start again. Generally, my favourite beers are pale ales and the attached pic was my favourite one at the festival. I've also got into Badger's 'Furkin Fox' which is a lovely auburn ale, perfetc for the winter.

What are you drinking chaps?

I recently downloaded and signed up for Untappd on my phone, so that I can "check in" every wankery beer I have and other beer wankers can see it and approve. I endorse this thread 100%.

Did anyone happen to get to a Nicholson's pub recently and try their guest ale Café Phoenix from Brains? It was a delight.

I managed to check into one place and now I can't seem to find a 'trying this beer' button anymore, I'm starting to h8 my Blackberry more and more but decidedly less than Google, Apple and Windows.

IMO Harveys are the kings of real ale. I rarely get to have it (probably not good seeing as a pub near me does it) but it's probably the most refreshing, delicious ale I've ever had.

I really should get to a festival...

Wine.

What decent and cheap wines are there? Personally I like wines that don't taste of very much. Not watery, but not strong tasting or dry. Barefoot seems alright. There's one that someone recommending that I can't remember the name of with a square base and a bent neck, does anyone know it?

Unfortunately our taste in wine is compatible so I doubt my recommendations will be of interest to you, I do like the Barefoot shiraz and merlot, though. A good wine for a cheap as chips price is Tesco's Simply Cotes du Rhone, it doesn't taste of 'nothing', though. The rest of the 'Simply' range isn't as good, in my experience.

I don't like wine that tastes of nothing, I like wine without strong tastes.
