    So the news is that brown roasted potatoes may cause cancer. Dammit I love the crispy bits in the bottom of the pan of roasted potatoes!!

    This got me thinking about what other unhealthy things I eat.Recently I tried Paratha or Roti Canai. this is a greasy thin bread eaten in China, India, Indonesia.

    Shit is like crack. You take it out of the freezer and cook it in a pan. You use it as a utensil to eat curry but i just put feta cheese or french soft goat cheese and it is the bomb. One thin paratha is 340cal and full of fat. An easy snack but brutally unhealthy.

    I occasionally indulge in various cheap candy products; I tore through a tub of peanut brittle about two weeks ago.

    On a fairly regular basis, however, my go to unhealthy meal choice has been American style fast food egg foo young. One container is ~1400 calories without the rice.

    Probably biscuits - or cookies to you Americans. My wife keeps buying packets of them to have in a tin for the kids but I can't resist them with a cup of coffee. They're full of total crap.

    As for the browned starch warnings - I'm yet to be convinced. They've been going on about acrylamides for years now and yet the studies they're using are still mouse studies. And by all accounts the risk is very small.

    What is that? Do you get it frozen or something? Never heard of it.

    This is random (@Graverobber @Chesten_Hesten) but when i was a broke athlete in Europe (i don't even want to say how many years ago - yikes) I ate leftover tompouce from the bakery next to where I slept (I would say 'lived' but it was hardly living). I probably ate 5,000 cal of tompouce a day.

    BBQ Crispers, cheap candies, and anything deep fried are my guilty pleasures that I don't feel too good about eating. The cheap 5 cent candies wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the weird gums and dyes used to make them.

    I also eat (real) ice cream, pizza, homemade sweets and pastries - but I don't really feel bad about eating those. They're all nutritious and relatively healthy when eaten reasonably.

    More a deep fried omelette with meat mixed in served on rice with gravy; you can find it at just about any North American take-away Chinese restaurant.

    Those pastries look mighty fine I must say. It must of been nice being an athlete or at least having the metabolism of one.

    Egg Foo Young is just pan fried scrambled eggs with some meet and green onions. Deep fried? Gravy? Rice? That's some 'murrican food porn.

    the most disgusting thing I ever ate while I was still racing was 2/3rds of a strawberry butter cream torte made by a french master pastry chef. I was living with my gf in Banff (it's a ski village), and she used to close this coffee shop in the evenings. A french pastry chef made their desserts. Being broke I used eat as much as I could before they threw stuff out. One day they were going to throw out 2/3rds of the most glorious cake I had ever seen. This thing had 3 lbs of strawberries and I don't want even think about how much butter was used. I ate the whole thing, it took me 2 and a half hours.

    My poor liver, the amount of sugar and fat that I consumed is absolutely retarded.

    You guys are fucking pigs. OMG all those carbs and fat. The worst I eat now are greasy ass chinese food in restaurants. It used to be fried chickens or fried anything but I've stopped eating those. Home cooked meals from now on.

    I eat a fraction of what I once ate. You want to stay in shape at 40, you have to eat right.

    It's funny but life at excess like that ends up being some of our most significant, or warm, memories. Nothing like that but during my late teens every Friday morning my mother and I would go to a local buffet to eat and I'd consume ungodly amounts of fish, meat, and rice; so much so that our waiter would bring me extra plates, a pitcher of water, and extra utensils. It was pretty funny timing in my life because I was actively trying to bring my weight down for Judo so despite those meals I was either losing weight or getting visibly fitter that entire period and the waiter commented on it in the funniest ways. Those are some of the warmest memories I have with my mother.

    You gotta move focus away from the food memory to the personal interaction. My favorite memories are of accomplishments of significance that required years of hard work.

    This was a little bit too deep for a Wednesday morning.

    Nearly all my 'significant' warm memories are based around instant gratification and without clear and reproducible cause and effect actions on my part. I've never really thought about this before.

    Freeze a block of lard and deep fry that.

    I had friend who did a post doc in Edinburgh and she sent me a pic of the special of the day at the commissary: baked bean pizza. It was just as disgusting as it sounded. Baked beans on pizza crust.

    She also sent me an article that the average Scot has one serving of fresh veggies every 18 months.
