Heather Mallick: Young millennials stuck with micro-quality of life

Heather Mallick: Young millennials stuck with micro-quality of life “Quality of life,” I said to the realtors. A doctor once told me that was the trick of being alive. I have put the phrase to a multiplicity of uses since then, sometimes even appropriately. I am selling up and moving house, an interminable process in which quality of life is rarely mentioned, not compared to location, asking price, sold for, bridge loan, unique vista, filled with charm, staging, and other once-prosaic words that now fill me with a sick dread. Everyone hates moving house: packing, buying, selling, doing dire math. The transitional state is a miserable one. We’re doing it because I want this elusive “quality of life,” ill-defined but I’ll know it when I see it.

Here in Toronto, we are breathing hot soup rather than air, passengers are dragging recalcitrant subway cars with long ropes, and tempers are ragged. So it is pleasant to hear that Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is making a game effort to turn the Canada Food Guide into a fun election issue.

Chicken is the most common type of poultry in the world. Owing to the relative ease and low cost of raising them in comparison to animals such as cattle or hogs, chickens have become prevalent throughout the cuisine of cultures around the world

The great debate over white meat and dark meat has been going on since the first family sat down to a roast chicken . Not only that , chicken is lower in saturated fats than salmon and leaner than sirloin steak, pot roast, hamburger, beef tenderloin, pork chops and ham.

In the U.S., voters are raging about fascism and concentration camps (strangely, there are two sides on this question), sending dark-skinned people back to where they came from (often Minnesota), paying for the devastation caused either by global heating or an angry god, plastic straws as a symbol of the freedom envisioned by the Founding Fathers (can’t Americans just drink from the cup like everyone else) and whether to start a war with Iran, North Korea, or China.

Here, chocolate milk has become an issue, or Scheer hopes it will, because if Canadians vote on issues like climate change, this heat wave will lose the election for him, partly because it may still be abnormally hot on Oct. 21, which is Election Day. How better to distract them than to say silly things about food and leave negative campaigning to the subterranean elements of the Conservative Party.

Heather Mallick: Trump’s open racism immoral, also unworkable

Heather Mallick: Trump’s open racism immoral, also unworkable Open racism from U.S. President Donald Trump is indeed a distraction, as the four Congresswomen he targeted for attack have said, followed by further clarion racist statements from that ludicrous, vicious man. It’s a filthy American habit linked to the history of slavery, and Trump’s worsening coded calls to violence will cause death. Federally sanctioned open racism is not a Canadian distraction, not quite yet. Some politicians make coded racist callouts followed by sonar soundings on how many voters they attract outside their fan base.

farms that make hunting seem nice, female birds periods or eggs (cruel to mother hens) and cruel dairy or bodily fluids made for babies of the same species not adult humans.

So, be assured and have that glass of milk after eating chicken . The only conclusion I could get by talking to doctors or research is that chicken is good source of iron and milk is source of calcium .Calcium hinders absorbtion of iron and this could be the reason why they are not adviced to be eaten

I sense a pattern. Conservatives are fond of distracting voters with invented food and beverage issues, i.e., Doug Ford’s cheap beer in Ontario, Jason Kenney’s guns to hunt Alberta meat.

The Food Guide is luscious this year with photos of delicious and healthy food styled attractively. I seek reasons for Scheer’s annoyance. The guide has been translated in 28 languages, but perhaps English and French have always been good enough for him. Perhaps Scheer finds “Make water your drink of choice” sinister.

The guide has changed with the decades. It always suggested milk and milk products as well as meat and meat alternates, such as beans ’n’ things. I am imagining how far the alternates would stretch, from soy dust if you’re a retro-hippie, to nuts and seeds if you’re vegan, to berries if you’re lost in the woods, to “anything you can catch eaten raw” if a week has passed, to “use rock to pulverize green leaves in your own urine for smoothie.”

1961 seems to be the year Scheer is after, when meat and fish were considered basic and meat alternates were eggs and cheese. The 2019 food guide suggests, “Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, whole grain foods and protein foods. Choose protein foods that come from plants more often.”

There it is. “Protein foods” replaces “meat.” Water is mentioned more than milk. In other words, Scheer is defending the Western cattle and dairy industry from modern times. If he becomes prime minister, he will reopen the guide, which he says is not science-based and “seems to be ideologically driven by people who have a philosophical perspective and a bias against certain types of healthy food products.”

Given that Scheer was speaking in Saskatoon to the Dairy Farmers of Canada annual general meeting, it’s puzzling that he didn’t just say out loud “meat and milk” or “cows,” both dear to the West, which is his only fan base. Even Doug Ford’s fans in Ontario have grown sufficiently leery of Ford’s incompetence and cronyism that they fear Scheer would be a carbon copy.

Our leaders think we’re idiots, Chapter 4,329: Milk

Chickens are wonderfully inquisitive birds, especially if you're the Food Human. However, if one were to feed a chicken meat from another chicken that died of disease or has gone green, it could easily result in death or serious illness for the chicken (s), but this goes for any kind of food.

White Meat , Chicken and fish are taken into consideration Breast meat where as Beef is considered Red Meat . When it comes to Pork as well as Then there is dark meat which is what the legs and thighs of poultry are called, probably because of their color after cooking being darker than the breast.

There’s nothing wrong with saying “meat and milk.” I just said it. In lore, ranching is almost as important to the always angry Western provinces as it is to the desperate cattle-herders of Nigeria.

Milk is my very life. I drink at least six glasses of skim milk each day, plus cheeses from the pedestrian mild cheddar to the traditional Comté to high-fat, lush-as-peonies Delice de Bourgogne. Whether it comes from goats, sheep or nuts, I will drink milk and back the dairy industry until the cows come home. And I am meat. This meat must eat (meat).

The fact that meat and milk will disappear with global heating is what Scheer should be telling cattle people. Diversify. Buy cheap stock in nut milk and lab-grown meat while you still can.

But no, he’ll try to pass himself off as Science Boy. Scheer is a big chicken.
