I can’t believe it’s salted butter…

For many years now I have been avoiding salt, I don’t add salt when cooking, I don’t add salt to my food when eating and where possible I avoid foods with a high salt content and where I can I will purchase the unsalted variety.

So when it comes to spread, virtually all margarines (and especially low fat spreads) are out of the question due to the salt content, so I usually go for unsalted butter. I realise it has quite a high fat content, but I just use less!

My usual brand is unsalted President butter, I have tried other brands and unfortunately the only other brand I liked was Rachel’s unsalted organic butter, but I can’t find that locally. All the other unsalted organic butters (own brand included) seem to be made by Yeo Valley and I didn’t like it.

So imagine my annoyance when I went to purchase some butter from my local Tesco when I found that they had stopped selling President unsalted, but had started selling salted President butter instead!

Why?

Why?

I am annoyed, looks like back to Morrisons or Sainsbury to get my butter.

A warning to all coffee lovers out there

Found this interesting article on the BBC News website.

Girl overdoses on espresso coffee. A teenager was taken to hospital after overdosing on espresso coffee.

It would appear that she had seven double espresso coffees and as a result had overdosed on caffeine!

A warning to all coffee lovers out there.

Welcome to Time to eat…

Welcome to Time to eat… a new food blog which is a spin off from an older non defunct Blog.

I have noticed that on that old blog I had been blogging about food quite a bit and also some of my photographs of food on Flickr are proving quite popular (compared to my other photographs).

Also mentions on Jaiku about cooking and food also proved popular.

Well so here it is… expect a burst of activity to begin with!
