Cooking bacon

anyone know the secret to cooking bacon so it remains soft, rather than turning into leather?

"Vegan activists have struck out at meat eaters by plastering meat products being sold in supermarkets with disturbing stickers warning against animal consumption.

The Daily Telegraph found that the people behind the war on meat campaign were members of vegan and animal rights group Anonymous for the Voiceless.

Products in both Coles and Woolworths were targeted, with confronting stickers resembling cigarette warning labels stuck front and centre on numerous items."

  Some choose to eat heaps of junk food and drink sugary drinks, others choose not to and eat very strict diets, some are vegan and there are others who are picky about what they ingest."

It is not up to anyone, in my opinion, to go around supermarkets putting stickers over products which are perfectly legal to be sold.

People can make up their own minds what they eat and not have others ideas forced upon them.

Products advertising meat/dairy/eggs are highly offensive to vegans but we don't have a choice to not see them.  Every meal you eat is a choice between kindness and health or violence and possible cancer.  Think about who is really the extremist. 

It is very easy to avoid the aisles these days as they are all marked.  I only go down the aisles where I need to purchase.

I'm talking KFC/McDonalds/Australia Day Lamb etc etc.  Look around you, it's more than the actual product in the meat aisle. 


There has been an increase in vegarianism to just over 9% but the majority of people (90%) are not....Australia I am talking about.

The thread on “ Brits put on a Stict diet” offers some interesting information on the benefits of a Mediterranean diet especially for older members . 


I try to follow   the Mediterranean diet to as large extent.  We only eat lamb and the occasional piece of pork.   Steak is something we have lost the taste for and rarely buy it or eat it when out.  Probably once a week we eat meat.

Both of us are in excellent health for our ages.



The vegetable section of the supermarket is huge and in your face as soon as you enter 

should have it in a separate section with its own entrance so as not to offend the carnivores
