HaHa - I knew you would cringe at the sauce Don. I usually just keep a couple on hand for emergencies I reckon it's better to do what I do above and know you will have a healthy, delicious meal at the end of the day without really having to do anything when you are at your worst, than buy fat laden take away. Mind you we do that on the odd occasion too. I think that the taste of the sauce is gobbled up in all the meat and veggie flavours anyway!

For those who like caramel coated popcorn or what you use to be able to buy lolly gobble bliss bombs

1/2 cup of popping corn
oil for popping corn or you can buy the bags of microwave pop corn doesn't matter whether plain or butter coated
after popping corn remove ones that have not popped, place in a large metal bowl
line 2 baking pans with grease proof paper

In a saucepan put 100 grams of butter, 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of golden syrup and 1 cup of castor sugar, bring up to a medium heat stirring until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved increase the heat to bring to a boil, once boiling turn down to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes and do not stir during this time, once cooked pour into the large bowl stirring to coat the popcorn, once coated spread out evenly in the two baking dishes, once cool break it up and enjoy, store in an air tight container. You can add finely chopped nuts if you desire.

Hi all :cheer: I'm new to this forum.

Each person's body and constitution is different, so I'm not going to 'lecture' anyone on what they 'should' or 'shouldn't' be eating. For me, however, I find that processed foods, sugary foods and alcohol make my inflammation worse. I'm moving more and more towards foods that are as nature intended.

After speaking with several complementary medicine practitioners, I also read Sally Fallon's book Nourishing Traditions, and Catherine Shanahan's book Deep Nutrition. They discuss the value of making stock from animal bones (beef, lamb etc) because its high calcium and gelatin content is supposed to be good for bones, joints and cartilage.

I know not everyone likes to eat food derived from animals, but I've been making stock for some months now, and I find it helpful. Just thought I'd pass it on :-)
