But, for the most part the majority of my diet is chicken, eggs, seafood, fish, veggies and fruits, with starchy veggies thrown in for variety. I would have to be desperate to ever eat tofu again. I am willing to try just about anything once, as long as it's not staring at me or trying to crawl off my plate at the time, but several of the substitution foods are not on my menu willingly. Ever.

    Sometimes health is the luck of the draw, regardless of diet. I've always eaten relatively healthy, but an autoimmune hit me in my early teens and it's compounded into 3 different autoimmune conditions. My spouse who ate horribly, smoked like a chimney and partook in recreationals, is rarely sick. Go figure.

    Those noodles are just " not right ". Something odd about them.

    Give me Miso soup instead.
    It's funny how personal tastes work. I always loved ramen noodles, the only reason I quit eating them is because of the high sodium content. I absolutely hate hate hate miso, in any form.I dated a Japanese gal when I was young man, and she tried her best to get me to like that stuff, to absolutely no avail.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    You can't even find them now in my area.

    Looks like more than a few people thought of the "fresh fish" solution and took advantage of it.
    I have a spare chest freezer if you are inclined. Ignore the strange looking frozen sundries in the bottom, and you'll have plenty of room to store whom...whatever you want. Pick up only, unmarked bills please.
    Quarantine is to restrict the movement of sick people.
    Tyranny is to restrict the movement of healthy people .

    No judgements from me. Everyone needs a hobby.

    Other than bulgogi and Yakimandu, I’ve never been a fan of Asian food.

    Update: Coronavirus border closures are threatening Europe’s food supply

    The US will potentially face similar problems.

    Europe's farmers are staring at their fields and worrying that with people confined to their homes, and their home countries, crops may wither on the vine this year.


    Farms across Western Europe are deeply dependent on Eastern Europeans who travel for work during the growing season.
    Yet with lockdowns in place as agriculture wakes up from its winter slumber, German asparagus may start rotting in the field and French strawberries may suffer from a lack of tending.




    European countries say they have enough food, for now. But there are concerns about what could happen if the crisis drags deep into the growing season, as well as fears for the livelihoods of their farmers.
