Because it's crap, watch supersize me! the film about a man trying to live on McDonalds.

They epitomize a lot that is wrong with the food industry. Unhealthy homogenized food, served by workers on a minimum wage working for a virulently anti-union company.

I've seen Supersize Me twice and like I said, everything is fine in moderation. That guy ate them 3 times a day for weeks on end. If I drank Coffee all day for weeks I'd probably have a stroke and get Parkinsons.

And their meat is 100% made from whole cuts despite what you've heard.

And lots of companies are anti-union. Wal-Mart is (I believe) but do you refuse to shop at Asda?

Well said Viper.

To be honest, I don't see why everyone hates McDonalds.

It's served quickly, it tastes good, there aren't that many calories in them and it's pretty cheap.

Is it just because it is seen as 'lazy' if you eat from there and not make something yourself? Or because you see overweight people eating there (everything is good in moderation, remember)? Or because you don't trust a load of 16 year olds making your food and have heard some 'horror stories' about what they do to the food?

I'm intrigued.

I used to work in a store that had a mcdonalds in it.  One week I didn't feel like bringing food in to work, so I just ate mcdonalds for lunch - note: I didn't change anything else about my diet or habits.  By day 5 I was sick, tired and had NO energy.  2 days after I stopped eating mcdonalds I was feeling MUCH better.

Calories aren't the only thing to worry about.  It might not be fatty, but it sure as hell ain't healthy.

Read my post on this page. You had Burgers/Fries/Coke for lunch 5 days in a row. What did you expect to happen?

I've done the same thing before with other companies, I worked at a pizza place and never got sick from the food, eaten a lot from other fast food places, but mcdonalds is the only one that's gotten me that sick.  It might be 100% beef cuts, but it's so processed that there's LITTLE nutritional value left.

A McD's or as my five year old calls it 'the dinner shop' is ok once in a while.  I'd say we go no more than once a month, and that is fine.

To eat there too regularly, you will do your body some lasting damage.

I like monster, redbull isn't bad but it's a bit weak flavored so I mix it with mountain dew...

I agree Viper.

I'm partial to a McDonald's at least once a week and I wouldn't go without it.

Did a somewhat cheaty bouillabaisse for lunch today with some barley bread, I think I could get addicted. What it did have was Saffron which is probably what is often substituted but what really does seem to make a difference to the dish.
There's a good dash of olive oil in the dish, but it probably rates as pretty healthy.

Took a pork tenderloin,  brined it for 30 mins, gave it a mustard coat, and then breaded it in some breadcrumbs from a sun-dried tomato loaf (not being posh there, it was a reduced price loaf in Morrisons) and roasted it for 25 minutes at 200c.

Did a red wine and mushroom sauce with it (does pay to make your own wine, as I used close to a bottle), horseradish mash, and a raw carrots coleslaw with capers and sultanas.

Pork ended up slightly pink, and very moist and tender I do find brining pork helps a lot.

Been a while since this thread had a post

I have been going back to basics with giving meat long marinades, or even not so long.

Yesterday cooked the best lamb shoulder I have had in a lot time, gave it a few hours in a marinade of onion,garlic, anchovies, salt black pepper, and dried basil, with a little meat tenderiser thrown in for good measure, gave it a crust of sesame seeds, then roasted it for several hours in a fan oven at 140c.

The meat was melt in your mouth and full of flavour.

In similar vein, I made some Brisket kebabs at the weekend, no tenderiser but a lot of vinegar in a 16hour spicy marinade, and they turned out very tender, not what you expect of quickly BBQ'd brisket.

I was googling for recipes the other day and a picture grabbed my attention.  Turned out to be Vietnamese fish sauce, and it looks utterly delicious, can't wait to knock some up and try it.  In fact a lot of Vietnamese food seems right up my street, gonna be doing some experimenting in the coming weeks I think

Once saw a tip somewhere about rubbing mint sauce into a lamb before roasting.  It is an utterly delightful flavour.
