How can I rebuild my gut biome?

While living overseas for the past two years I went through two different rounds of antibiotics, which were generally handed out like candy. After reading this article about the damage antibiotics can cause to the gut biome, I'm wondering how I can rebuild my gut. [more inside]

Productive ways to channel my disgust for the meat & dairy industries?

Over the last few years, I have become increasingly horrified by the animal industrial-complex over its appalling treatment of living beings, the hugely negative impact on the environment, and the health issues related to contaminated or otherwise chemically treated meat and dairy. What actions can I take against these issues? [more inside]

Give me your duck leg recipes...

I have a number of duck legs in the fridge, which need using over the next few days. Please suggest recipes. I don't need basic cooking instructions, just your best ways with duck legs. I don't particularly want to go down the confit route, as I don't have much storage space in this flat, and there doesn't seem much point if I don't let then mature. But if you think I'm insane to pass up the chance I'm sure you'll let me know. Thanks!

I know, I know, it's cereus

Is there somehow less of a problem with Bacillus cereus in Japanese rice? I often see remarks like this one about not refrigerating onigiri, and about leaving rice in the rice cooker for hours if not days and continuing to eat it. The worst food poisoning I have ever had was from B. cereus, so I am hypersensitive to rice preparation and storage. [more inside]

Good regional cooking methods?

After years and years of not getting the pasta right, everyone in my circle of friends and beyond seems to know that you need to finish the pasta in the sauce, including some of the cooking water. It's such a vast improvement. Do you know similar simple "tricks" or methods from other regional cuisines? I remember reading this thread about Japanese and Korean cooking with great interest, but I'm curious about other cooking styles across the World as well. [more inside]

Low-effort, bulk vegetarian recipes?

I'm looking for vegetarian recipes, without beans, which scale well relative to the level of effort. By which I mean: when you make potato salad, you can double it, but you're going to spend 2x the time peeling potatoes. That's bad. Chili (unfortunately, has beans) scales well: you don't need to individually wash every single bean, you just chuck in 2x the number of beans. Any recommendations for recipes? [more inside]

Can I Eat This? Creamy Pork Stew Edition

Last night I made this recipe for a creamy pork shoulder stew (which was delicious). Everything was thoroughly cooked as it was simmering for probably 1.5+ hours. I put the leftovers in a covered (but not sealed) container and forgot to put it in the fridge. I just found it this morning, so it was sitting out for about 12 hours. Can I eat this? I was thinking I could throw everything in a pot and boil it again, or perhaps microwave it.

To eat, or not to eat

I never thought I'd ask one of these. Last night I poached some chicken breasts. I took them out of the water and left them on a plate on the kitchen bench, intending to put them in the fridge later. I forgot. So they've been sitting there for, call it 12 hours. Temperature I reckon between 17-14 C. Should they stay or should they go?

Ideas for no-cook meals besides sandwiches?

I'm on a lazy/convenient no-cooking kick and have been eating just sandwiches with deli meats and sliced veggies, and fruit. Assume you could not use the stove/oven nor have any other kitchen equipment (no blenders, microwave, etc, but just a knife, can opener). What are some meal ideas besides sandwiches? I'm not looking for snack ideas like nuts, crackers, etc. but actual meals. I am a meat-eater if that makes a difference and prefer to avoid a whole lot of canned foods because of BPA.
