Once they can mandate the jab to keep your job, house, family, etc. they can mandate any medication. They can even tailor requirements to the individual. Too much wrong think, up your meds.

KickingPugilist 35 points ago +37 / -2

My SIL works for a food lab and deals with major companies. Her company tests chemicals and things like that for flavor.

Most of the Food in the US uses dyes and shitty compound ds to add color and texture/flavor.

From what I gather, "Impossible foods" uses a dye/chemical that is horrendous but mimics the juicy blood of real meat. Apparently it's linked to serious issues like cancer but they use it because it gives their "meat" more of a genuine feel/texture.

Red food dye which is listed as Carmine on the label is indeed made from little bugs from South America. Many other eyes are made from petroleum. In the long list of things to be worried about, this ranks pretty low for me.

KickingPugilist 10 points ago +10 / -0

Fine thanks for the correction. However, my main point was the safety of it or the studies on it.

I know this article isn't a peer reviewed journal, but it was something I quickly found.

"Rats fed the genetically modified (GM) yeast-derived SLH developed unexplained changes in weight gain, changes in the blood that can indicate the onset of inflammation or kidney disease, and possible signs of anemia."

https://www.gmoscience.org/2019/06/25/rat-feeding-studies-suggest-the-impossible-burger-may-not-be-safe-to-eat/

What is your take on it?

3
SordidPontification 3 points ago +3 / -0

Edit: I'm not OP, but I thought I'd read the linked material anyway.

Because sites like gmoscience.org have an axe to grind (obviously) and selectively pick-and-choose from the papers despite linking directly to them, like this one from the FDA.

I would suggest that you compare what gmoscience.org has written versus what the actual linked study says. In particular:

The results from study 44856 fully address the potential concerns raised by study 43166...

and...

Study 43166 showed a decrease in uterine weights that corresponded to a decreased incidence of fluid filled uteri in group 2 and 4 females. In study 44856, there was no significant difference in organ weights for the uterus or ovaries with oviducts between groups 1 through 4. Moreover, the presence of fluid filled uteri did not differ accros groups (Table 5). Published literature demonstrates that the presence of fluid filled uteri and uterine weight correlates with estrous cycle stage (Westwood, 2008). Our results from study 44856 reveal a similarly consistent correlation. Thus, the simplest explanation for the decrease in uterine weights observed for groups 2 and 4 in study 43166 is that the animals within those groups had a different distribution of estrous cycle stages that typically correspond to lower uterine weight in healthy rats, compared with groups 1 and 3.

Once you read this, you come to a different conclusion from a site that claims to examine such things in detail. Yet, apparently, no one thought to actually read the damned study.

Be very careful when reading commentary; if primary sources are available, read those first. Though one of the authors has a PhD (which I assume is the same Dr Antoniou whose PhD is in molecular genetics), the linked write up is incredibly sloppy and shameful. Being as he appears to sell books related to GMO products, I do have to suspect that the motivations behind deliberately ignoring the results of the study (cited above) isn't entirely accidental.

True story...

My mom had a roommate when she was in college, that used to eat her food from the shared fridge. So, my mom put a can of dog food "stew" (it had peas & corn & carrots, looked like real stew), in a bowl and left in in the fridge... of, course the roommate ate it. She than asked the roommate where the dog food went.

That was the end of the food stealing. (~_^)

Funny thing about that.... my dad's very good friend of the family which I referred to as grandpa grew a taste for canned cat food because of the depression. He actually liked it! I can't remember the brand of it but my dad would know. I never knew till after he passed away and we found 3 different flavors hidden under the sink in a bag. My dad told me that he knew a lot of people that had grown a taste for such things because of the such hard times during then. Its sad but really resilient! It was a terrible time. He lived to 98yo and was in good health but he ended up passing due to a stroke/clot from falling and breaking his hip at his home.

Goospeed77 2 points ago +3 / -1

It really depends on the brand. My ex wife was a vet and I learned more than I care to know. Don't let the label that says usda choice fool you! There's stuff like end trails/lots of the like by-products from pork,beef,chicken,turkey,lamb,fish along with already dead,diseased and including some roadkill! Beware of the cheap foods you give to your pets!!! Especially if they are re-labeled from other countries!!! Like China! About 10? Yrs ago dogs were dieing from being poisoned from dog foods. It was all over the news.

2
DeusVultIntensifies 2 points ago +3 / -1

You make an important point.The brand is important and always good to consult with your vet. We make dog food at home, but even then only as a supplement to their dry food. There are a lot of specific vitamins and nutrients your dog needs that can be found in high quality dog food. People need to research the brands and be wary of grain free foods that for some reason can cause heart problems in dogs. Also beware of Beneful by Purina. A quick search of "Beneful killing dogs" will give you nightmares.

How many fat people do you know?

The ones I know eat Doritos, taco Bell (Taco Bell beef is 60% oats), pizza, pasta, Mac and cheese, rice and beans.

I know plenty of people who lost weight switching to steak, chicken, fish, and fresh green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.

By making steak, chicken, and fish more expensive, we'll increase the obesity epidemic.

I need to exercise more if I want to eat Doritos. If I even look at a carb i gain 5 pounds. If I don't eat super clean I balloon up. Lack of exercise (other than the 4 days a week at the gym) and poor metabolism plus thyroid issues means I've got to stay away from carbs at all cost.

100% I'm completely stuffed with an 800-1000 calorie steak and stay that way for a while. I could eat 1200 calories of pizza and 300 calories of soda and feel snackie shortly after. Terrible for you.

4 eggs scrambled with some sausage and nothing else is like 400 calories and pretty filling too. Main reason I eat that way is all the food allergies I have. Food allergies already made my grocery bills higher than average, but boy has it been getting harder and harder.

Are you allergic to food or are you allergic to the shit they spray on grains right before harvesting? That poison ends up in damn near everything. Some people have seen no problem going to Europe and eating the foods that once gave them problems.

Obboster 1 point ago +1 / -0

Not sure about that, I can eat bread and stuff. Just a lot of seeds and nuts soy and peanuts and milk, various stuff. Which basically makes it so I can't eat a lot of stuff at the grocery store. Soy is in damn near everything. Just is easier to cook meats

Sorry to hear about food allergies.

I always like steak, but in my 20s I was too cheap to buy it.

Then I started getting restless leg syndrome. Didn't even know that was a thing. Would be unable to sleep, constantly flexing my calves because they ached, sort of like an itch and flexing scratches it.

One day I realized, when I had a steak it would go away the next day for a week or more.

Low iron! I try to eat at least one a week, grass fed burger if not a steak.

Many restaurants start out with highly skilled staff and high food standards.

Then, over time, there is burn out and turnover. Then cost cutting by management.

Enter Cisco to the rescue. And the restaurant operates as a shadow of its former self, riding on that old, good reputation, till it finally crashes and burns.

Lucky you. I was lazy couple months ago and online ordered a ribeye from there. I like a rare steak but this one was still moo-ing.

Laziness prevailed... Ate leftover Mac n cheese. Cooked the steak for breakfast next day. Last time I will pay that much for something I have to cook and it was flavorless too.

2
user365927285937 2 points ago +2 / -0

That was almost exactly my experience. By “poorly cooked” I meant that I received a rubbery chunk of raw meat, still cold in the middle with small amounts of grey on the outside. Like literally you could get the same result throwing a raw steak on a lukewarm frying pan for 20 seconds.

I specifically requested it to be browned and charred on the outside yet rare in the center.

In hindsight, I have no clue why I didn’t complain or ask for a refund. I think it was a special night or something with my significant other and didn’t want to make a scene. But holy smokes what a horrible steak.

2
Bazzellle 2 points ago +2 / -0

Probably just pan fried it on both sides and thought that was good enough. You're supposed to sear the outsides for several minutes each and then put it in the oven to finish.

PraiseBeToScience 7 points ago +8 / -1

Reverse seared steaks in my oven are pretty much better than any steak I've had at a restaurant outside of the really fancy ones.

Look it up and try it once. It sounds weird but it makes incredible steaks. You put them in the oven for like 35 minutes at 200 (you must have an instant read constant monitor thermometer, pull them out when they're 8 degrees under the point you want them), then whip them into a pan and sear them in butter. It's seriously incredible how great the turn out.

That's how I used to do it, pan-sear is really good. The biggest two issues with reverse sear is A) It takes a 10 minute process and makes it 45, and B) You HAVE to keep an eye on them.

Only way to avoid it is to use ghee or tallow. Butter will always burn at those temps. I do the same though and steaks turn out amazing after finishing in the oven.

Interesting. I always do it the opposite way. Sear both sides on high for 7-9 minutes, then apply butter/garlic extras and throw it in the oven at 380-400 for 10 minutes. After removing it from the oven, I remove the steak from the pan and scrape off the burnt bits using vinegar and glaze them in goodness.

I use propane. We use jack Daniels steak seasoning. It has dried garlic, salt, pepper etc. I get a 1" thick steak (ribeye or strip) marinade in seasoning + Worcestershire sauce for 30 min. Steak must be approximately room temp before cooking.

Preheat the grill to 500-550 F. Cook steak on each side for approximately 2:35. Pull off immediately and apply garlic butter (just minced garlic mixed with butter) or just plain butter. Cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes.

Enjoy.

5
PaigeAshley 5 points ago +5 / -0

She puts a bit of cold butter, green onion cheddar cheese, (any kind of hard crumbly cheese will work) sometimes mushrooms in a small food processor and pulses it until pretty blended then adds it to the ground meat and mixes well before forming the patties.

She sometimes adds garlic powder, onions, bacon and a bit of barbecue sauce, or does different combinations, but always adds the butter.

Also, she learned after you make the patties and don't want them to shrink so much, press your thumb down in the middle of the patties before grilling. They shrink much less!

3
ItsOkayToBeWight 3 points ago +3 / -0

Strange that she adds butter. Do you buy 80/20 beef or something else? The leaner meets are objectively worse and that's why they need butter or cheese.

1
PaigeAshley 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's a leaner beef. We mostly buy from a guy we know who raises pasture raised beef and we split a half or quarter with friends. It's delicious meat, but yes the ground beef is pretty lean. We could ask for some fattier ground meat, my mom just doesn't mind and is good at tenderizing. :)

Even if you don't hunt, buy in bulk and VAC SEAL your meat before freezing. Vacuum sealers are inexpensive. 4 pack of steaks on sale? Buy and vac seal your portions. Half of a salmon on sale? Break it down into portions and vac seal. Roast 4 chickens at once and vac seal into portions whatever you don't eat.

Agreed. That said, if someone wants to get into it and doesn't want to spend the 7x + more on a chamber sealer and wants to do vac seals liquids, this is what you do:

Freeze liquids in small plastic containers or ice cube trays overnight. The next day, take out frozen cubes or container-sized cube and put into vacuum bags. Seal, put back into freezer. Great way to do sauces, pesto, stocks, soup, etc. Remember to portion control so when you defrost you only have as much as you need.

Liberty4All 4 points ago +4 / -0

You can do something similar for delicate fruits (blueberries, etc.) and vegetables (many blanched veggies such as green beans are soft enough to get kind of squished by a vacuum sealer). This is also good for breaded foods (breaded okra, eggplant, chicken, etc.), or for rolls, biscuits cookies, etc., intended for baking later.

Spread your items out on a baking sheet, in a single layer, with the pieces not touching each other, and freeze. (Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper first if you're concerned about them sticking to the baking sheet.)

As soon as the food is frozen solid, portion and transfer to vacuum bags, seal, and return to the freezer. Work fast so the food stays frozen the whole time. Your items should stay individually frozen so you can take out only as much as you need. \

Most breaded foods can be fried while still frozen.

Generally you'll need to thaw the bread products before baking. But individual rolls, cookies, etc, usually thaw pretty fast.

Also, if you have a sous vide, go ahead and portion and season meats, then load them in vacuum bags with a glug of oil or a hunk of butter before vaccum sealing and freezing them. These meats can go straight from the freezer to the sous vide. Big meats like roasts need several hours in the sous vide if frozen, so you can toss them in the sous vide on the way out the door in the morning.

After the meat comes out of the sous vide, clip off a corner of the bag to drain the liquid. (If you keep the liquid, you can use it as the base for a sauce to serve with the meat). Then take the meat out and sear it. Easy.

I want to get a deep freezer and then do a meat share but the power thing makes me nervous. Kind of sucks if half a cow goes bad.

I was looking at chicken thighs the other day....a pound and a half was like 12.50. They used to basically give those away.

2
zooty 2 points ago +2 / -0

The good news is that a freezer can function reasonably well with intermittent power and then doesn't take much power overall. You definitely want a plan if you think power could be out more than a day or two though. Beef won't spoil too quickly if kept cool. You could always make jerky if that happens as well.

Unfortunately, chicken thighs have taken off as people have realized that they're some of the tastiest part of the bird (possibly also because the misplaced worries about fats has faded). I was ahead of the curve there for a little while. Wings have gone similarly.

1
MLGS 1 point ago +1 / -0

Buy or build a smoker and learn how to smoke meat too, if you're in an extended blackout situation and you can't generate power to keep your meat frozen then you can always use the old ways and smoke it to preserve it.

1
zooty 1 point ago +1 / -0

I have done some smoking but it's always been as a way to cook and flavor. I'm not familiar with the preservation aspects.

Likewise with jerky, it's always gone within 72 hours.

SquiggyMcPepe 19 points ago +21 / -2

Luckily I always keep a nice stock of meat in the deep freezer. These are the times when preppers can pat themselves on the back.

16
BringTheCat789 16 points ago +16 / -0

Unfortunately, prepping doesn't do much to deal with inflated costs. Prepping is good for when things are outright unavailable, but not if the prices are inflated, especially if the inflation is permanent.

If meat's still available, I'm still buying it to replace the meat in my deep freezer I'm using. I don't want my preps to run down to save on costs in hopes that the prices will go back down before I run out, just to be caught without any preps left when meat actually becomes unavailable.

5
SquiggyMcPepe 5 points ago +6 / -1

It can ease the cost if you are in a financial pinch. Also l'm long retired and have no real bills or debt past power, internet and feeding my face so even if it gets really bad I will do fine.

3
BringTheCat789 3 points ago +4 / -1

Yea, that's one reason to prep. If I lose my job and cannot afford food, I have some. It's as good or better than money in the bank, since I have to eat.

But that doesn't really help weather costs if you're not in a financial pinch and meat costs are just inflated.

3
SquiggyMcPepe 3 points ago +3 / -0

Thats where anger drives you to action and makes your displeasure known. Stuff like this is what changes things because it gets people worked up and far more prone to action instead of being placid sheep. There is a reason the biden admin hasn't moved on really driving up prices until now. But since their back is to the wall and they have nothing to lose they will burn it all down around them as a way to possibly escape in the resulting chaos. The global supply chain disruption is about to hit home hard now that much of the nations 'deep freezer' stock is now almost gone with no easy replacements. While most stuff is still cheap might be a good time to stock up on the basics like toilet paper and cleaning supplies plus any normal replacement items too.

1
Icepck 1 point ago +1 / -0

And when they cut the power your frozen meat doesn't last long. When fuel (charcoal, oak, gas) isn't available you're eating steak tartar or raw chicken.

1
BringTheCat789 1 point ago +1 / -0

Meh, I disagree. Sure, if the power goes out, my meat will only last in its current state for so long. But I have a gas generator and gas to extend that a bit. So power would need to go out and gas would need to be unavailable for several days for me to begin to worry. Past that, you can preserve your thawing meat supplies with salt and it won't require refrigeration for quite some time.

As far as cooking the meat... this is truly a non-issue. I stock up on charcoal briquettes and propane, but these are just convenience items. If I run out and have to do what I have to do, anything that burns may not be suitable for cooking directly over, but is perfectly suitable for boiling water. That's all you need.

If you think frozen meat is something good

15
SquiggyMcPepe 15 points ago +16 / -1

Depends on how you freeze it and for how long. Best way is to spritz with water then wrap in vacuum plastic to form a thin air tight ice seal around the meat. That will last at least a year before the meat starts to break down and that slightly copper taste sets in. After that its just a matter of eating it up and replacing it as you go. Replacements will now have to wait for a deep sale but thats fine I have a bit less than a years worth stocked up from previous sales and bulk buys. Also pork and chicken are almost immune to freezer rot and can last much longer if properly sealed when fresh. But in the end freezer meat is certainly far better than no meat or hideously overpriced meat.

Yes, vacuum-sealed, flash-frozen meat is excellent if you get it from a reputable producer or straight from the farm. Unless you're buying your fresh meat exclusively from a good whole-animal butcher, it's going to be a much better end product as well.

Preppers who hoard food and never use it are stupid. Thats why most preppers rotate their stock so that nothing ever goes to waste. I've had to dig into my stock over a dozen times over the decades due to weather knocking out power or other short term events and its nice to have if someone you know is in need of help so you can easily gift them a few weeks of food to stay on their feet.

So far it seems to just be the steaks. Thankfully while ground beef has gone up, it's nowhere near this much.

I just got back from a quick run to the grocery store where I spent $148 and the only meat I bought was one package of chicken breast. I did not buy coffee or do a big cleaning supply run, this was truly some veggies to make soup with, a few pieces of fresh fruit, one package of deli meat - those were the expensive items. We're going to be eating noodles every day if the prices keep going up like this.

2
Brains101 2 points ago +3 / -1

Rice and beans in bulk, mix in the veg or otherwise, some spices, strips of chicken, it’s all good. When I was poor as shit and trying to save money I’d have cooked lentils over rice, sometimes with a can of salsa or tomatoes thrown in like a stew for flavor.

Cheap, filling, and nutritious, a little prep like soaking the beans overnight before boiling, but I could make a solid week’s worth of meals for a total of $6 or less. Maybe buy a couple cucumbers or fruits if I was less strapped for cash. When you’re in the mindset, frugality can go a long way.

Not going to lie, it makes it tough to go back to that after earning more and getting more comfortable. But I’m always prepared for it just in case, some 75 pounds of rice and about a similar amount of black beans, red/green lentils, soup beans, whatever’s needed. Even have been canning my own salsa now, ha
