Sorry to be a fun sponge, but this stuff ruined me. Check the label, it's mostly soy oil, which is proinflammatory, and uniquely obesogenic and diabetogenic. I got through about 6 jars of the black bean chilli tail end of of 2013 and it wrecked my digestion, did something bad to my gall bladder duct, and who knows how what else. On the plus side, this health scare put me on the right road once and for all.

Keep eating it and see what happens.
It's definitely the soy and not the fucktons of chili that messed your guts up?

Well thanks for the heads up.... but
a) My body is very strong and powerful and that probably won't affect me
b) I doubt I'll go through six jars in the next six years
c) I know they have changed the recipe lately. I think that the godmother gave control to her (I guess) godson and he changed the recipe to cut costs using some inferior ingredients. But godmother wrested back control of the company and went back to the classic recipe
d) Most important is how healthy and strong I am

I dunno, Rich, it still sounds pretty risky. You don't want to end up like this:

Each stage represents the effects of eating one jar of soy-based product, apparently.

Just finishing off the tom kha goong I made last night. Ok, yes, I had to look that up - let's just say spicy Thai soup with prawns and coconut. Commercial soup base but I boosted it with extra lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves. And dried ceps, obviously. Pretty damn good.

Got a nice bit of bluefin tuna for dinner this evening.

My little boy had a lunch of scrambled eggs, salmon, feta, spinach and fresh basil. We're hoping to avoid the worst bits of a toddlerish fussy phase by getting him used to as many different flavours as possible. It's worked pretty well so far.

When the lockdown started I recover a lot. So in a few weeks I realized that I should not eat sweets and fast food. On Canadian pharmacy I read about various recipes for healthy and tasty dishes. So I usually eat different salads but today is a special day - my dinner consists of seafood!

Stick at it man. The more flavours and textures they munch and explore the broader their taste range becomes long term

One of my lad’s friends has the fussiest parents imaginable. Pre lockdown we got asked “can so and so come to dinner if he asks his parents?”, as kids do. Sure, no problem. Then his Dad phoned. “He doesn’t like onions or garlic, tomatoes, boiled eggs (few others), no allergies”

My wife gave me that look of fuck those people, made lasagna with roasted veg blitzed in the whizzer, tomato and béchamel sources and he wolfed the plate down

If he even entertains that sort of muck aged 7 I'd be very surprised. And not a little impressed.

life would be easier if kids were like cats: we've fed our felines the same damn things every day for their entire lives, and they love it (cuz they don't know anything else exists, and they're cats).

other pluses with cats: no potty training necessary, and they sleep most of the day and night. they probably barf more often than the average kid, though.

More likely to drag in dead or half-dead birds, rodents or frogs, too.
