MEAT OR NOT? ( or horse )

Are we eating more horse meat than we think? From reports coming in now it has been found in a lot of fast food establishments, schools and the food we buy from the supermarket! Sausages and lasagna are off the menu here, it will be a vegetarian diet for a while. Not knowing that the horse meat is in our food appears to be the problem, so if we knew it was, would we eat it? Apparently from the answers in some polls, we would, and people just want to know what they are eating. If horse meat was cheaper than other meats some would buy it because of the price, is that fair and would schools have to say they are using it as beef mince lasagne is not put on the menu it’s just lasagna.

The high street butchers are becoming popular again as people want to know 100% what they are eating. We are now cooking it from scratch but is this not a good idea, mum, dad in the kitchen cooking, teaching the children how to chop up the vegetables and make things?

Convenient foods, dinners and take aways have become the lazy way to eat these days but is that a wrong way to teach the next generation. We are encouraging the growing of vegetables on the allotment, going to the local butcher and getting the meat is the next step.

Families in the kitchen preparing dinner together, children learning to cook, this all must be a good way forward and a healthier option.

    Horsemeat carries a drug that is toxic and dangerous to humans apparently and it carries into the food. I am a devout veggie have been for many many years, todays ready made meals are indeed a worry.

    It’s really silly I know, because I’ve been reading all the “horsemeat” stuff myself, but when I see a picture of sausages I can’t think of anything else. I love them that much, and these look perfectly cooked. Groan.

      I know what you mean. The thing that worries me is if horse meat can go undetected, what else might we be eating? X
