Quoted from Averno

Some Czech friends were horrified the we served them "pig food" a few years ago. They tried it and loved it. Roasted, buttered and salted... Oh my...   .

Don't forget the pepper!  

European countries don't have the "cornfields as far as the eye can see" agricultural allotments that we do, here in America: Corn, corn, everywhere.
Nor is "corn on the cob"  embedded in their culture as it is in ours; sweet corn on its cob says "Summer" to Americans - it's very much a part of our culture and an expected ingredient at many a summer holiday gathering or bbq.

As for the "pig-food" prejudice:
The filet of dover sole I bought last night is in my refrigerator: I suspect it's the "food" of some of my "Avoid" sea-critters, but that won't stop me from enjoying it.
I also enjoy a good lambchop; the fact that a dog would also enjoy it doesn't make it any less attractive to, or beneficial for, me.

A good many of my meals could be divided up between "rabbit food" and "cat food" too. Food is food, and before the invention of the "pet food industry" pets simply ate family leftovers.

Well, I was almost entirely compliant with BTD/GTD except for corn until recently. Within the last two months, I've dropped 17 pounds without trying.

Quoted from ruthiegirl


It's also possible that these foods were perfectly healthy when they were eaten generations ago, but only became unhealthy with modern hybridization. The difference between "ancient corn" and "modern corn" could be like the difference between spelt and wheat.



I'm an Explorer A Nonnie and can't have corn, period. BTW corn is a fruit; consider that. A carby-fruit. A wierd thing kind of like the way San J questioned Bananas a few months ago. I agree with the possiblity that corn a thousand years ago was maybe not even the "Indian Corn" we see today. I don't eat any grains anymore, PERIOD, because I will forever be a Neolith in digestion. There is one water-grass seed I do eat, nowhere related to rice at all, and that is "wild rice". It is FULL of PROTEIN. It is a treat when made with lentils (also made with protein) and tossed with buckwheat (for iron.)

I guess you could say buckwheat, breadfruit and bananas are the only  carby-fruits I can safely eat. But not corn!

Re: adding alkalai to corn to prevent pelagra - consider what the ancient Peruvians had to do with their first crops of potatoes in order to somewhat detoxify and consume them - because they were even more harmful than they are today.(I think they mixed then with potash before consuming.Gritty?) Peruvians were and still are, O's. People will try ANYTHING to make a food more digestible if they find it is filling and keeps away hunger.(though their pancreas may disagree.)

yes paul,
I lived in late Czechoslovakia during the 60s

we would ride out visiting castles and would undoubtedly steal corn passing through the countryside.....all corn was for porcine feed
