We all have to go to dino's, but then when we get there insist that he serve us meat. A traditional Thanksgiving, y'know? Joking aside, I would totally hang out with dino. (If invited. )

The correct thing to do in that situation is to come prepared. When the meal is served, pull a bloody steak out of your back pocket and slap it onto the plate.

Isn't the correct approach (to dinner at Dino's) to invite other members of your family, whine about how much you love meat and generally be such a dick about it before you go that you get un-invited?

It is quite difficult being poor, though. I agree with other posters that cheap chicken is bad, in a variety of ways, but it's very hard to resist when you're loving broke and want some chicken.

But I can't think of a solution that wouldn't involve a world wide change in attitudes and production methods that wouldn't be the result of a major catastrophe.

The solution is to treat meat as an occasional treat that is worth paying a bit extra for, rather than the main constituent of every meal. It sucks, but there it is.

And I say that, fully cognisant of the fact that I am a massive hypocrite!

That's why governments secretly want obesity to rise. Fattening people up nicely, so their meat will be marbled and delicious.

Forums user "i shoot friendlies" suggests you adopt his approach: Every time you prepare any meat, make sure to do so in such a dangerous way that you are bound to give food poisoning to everyone who eats it. Sufficient repetition will set up an operant conditioning mechanism that will reduce meat consumption by 100%!

I have spent a portion of my Sunday making purées to freeze for when Sam is weaning.

Trip report: Parsnip purée is surprisingly delicious. Plum purée is very hard work and wasn't really worth the effort. But goes very well with gin.

That's pretty much what we're going to be doing, too. He still doesn't seem to be too interested in food yet, but we sit him at the table with us when we eat, so hopefully he'll start showing a bit more interest soon.

Edit: And if he doesn't like the purées, I'm sure I can find a use for them... Parsnip purée with chilli-infused vodka?

gluten intolerance causes long term damage to your intestines and can lead to cancer over time.

What? Do you have a peer-reviewed source for this statement? Because I just had a quick look on pubmed and all the studies I could see found no link between coeliac disease (or gluten intolerance) and cancer.

Scientastic

The data for coeliac disease and lymphoma isn't particularly convincing, but the largest study saw a link. A study showing that undiagnosed coeliac's have no increased risk and another that showed that gluten-free diets don't reduce the risk suggest that it's less to do with gluten "intolerance" and more to do with some underlying disorder, don't they?

Maybe Gumbel2Gumbel has another source: I'd be interested to see it.

Do we have to challenge every person with some kind of eating requirement to justify themselves before talking about food with them?

If they're spreading misinformation about the medical basis for their fad, then yes. As a cancer biologist, I get very cross when people make unfounded statements about the links between diet and cancer. My life is hard enough without people advocating ignorance and lies.

Oh, I wasn't advocating a connexion---I was just pointing it out because if you were doing your PubMed search for `cancer' you mightn't be seeing the lymphoma papers, and (I am assuming) they are the basis for the claim Gumbel2Gumbel was repeating.
